With the 2011 NFL Combine set to begin on Feb. 24, it's time to look into which players the Atlanta Falcons should have on their radar.
While there are certainly some spots on the offense that could use some work, the Falcons primarily need to improve their defense this offseason, particularly the defensive end and cornerback positions.
Over 300 players will be participating in the Combine this year, and there are a number of top-notch defensive prospects the Falcons should be taking a look at.
The athletes you'll find listed here are not necesarilly the absolute best at their respective positions, rather they are player who could be available to Atlanta, based on a few mock drafts I've looked at.
Player's stocks rise and fall based on how they perform during this event, so it's not completely clear as to where they will be taken, but based on the information that is available now, the Falcons should be able to get one of these players in the first round, and possibly more in later rounds.
