Continuing our draft preview series with a look at the Falcons

Mike Smith AP

The Falcons had methodically turned themselves into one of the NFC’s most consistent teams of the last half-decade, and even won a playoff game.

But it all came crashing down last year, when injuries exposed them as a bit of a house-of-cards team.

This offseason, they’re determined to become more physical on both lines, and the early free agent acquisitions of Jon Asamoah, Paul Soliai and Tyson Jackson are evidence of that.

There’s still more work to be done, as they have a number of missing parts to fill in on both sides of the ball, and they’re not afraid to make aggressive moves to fill them. How should they best go about it?

    Why wasn’t trade down an option? I know, I know… Not flashy or bold enough for Dimitroff’s style, but still… They should.

    They are going to get Clowney by trading up to 2 if Texans pass. Otherwise they will wait to get the best OT at their spot.

    falcons will trade up for clowney and watch him fail as an OLB thus trading him in 2 years to the cowboys for a 4th round pick where he becomes all pro for the next 5 years as cowboys set record for most 8-8 seasons in 1 decade
