The Atlanta Falcons got bigger, stronger and just plain better this year. The goals of the draft were to get meaner and better up front. Atlanta easily did that by selecting offensive tackle Jake Matthews and defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hageman with its first two picks in the draft.
It continued to focus more on the combination spots of safety, linebacker and edge player as the draft went along with the selections of Dezmen Southward, Prince Shembo and Marquis Spruill. Atlanta also took a good running back for its future change-of-pace role in Devonta Freeman.
Then the Falcons closed the draft out with a pair of selections they didn't feel like fighting other teams for in undrafted free agency. With those picks, they selected yet another linebacker pairing of Yawin Smallwood and Tyler Starr.
They filled up quite a few holes, but there are still 20 more roster spots left to address after the nine draft picks. Follow along as we give you all the details for every Atlanta Falcons undrafted free-agent signing. Maybe the Falcons will get another Paul Worrilow or Joplo Bartu this year.
