Atlanta Falcons Ultimate 2014 Draft Primer

The biggest question in Atlanta over the offseason wasn’t whether or not the Falcons were going to trade up to take defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. It wasn’t whether the Falcons were going to use their first-round draft pick on a pass-rusher or an offensive tackle.

No, the biggest question in Atlanta from the time their season ended until this very minute is simple. Was the 2012 season where the Falcons went 13-3 real, or was last season’s 4-12 showing what this fanbase can expect moving forward?

The answer is probably somewhere in between.

There are too many holes (offensive line and the pass rush are definitely the biggest) to fill for Atlanta to easily jump back into contention for the best record in the NFC. There’s also too much talent on this roster not to think a good draft couldn’t propel the Falcons into the playoff hunt.

Here’s what you need to know about the 2014 NFL draft and how the Falcons can set themselves up for a shot at being a part of the playoff picture.
