The Atlanta Falcons have a bit of a weakness at middle linebacker. It does us no good to sugarcoat it.
The good news is that the position is de-emphasized in Mike Nolan's defense, so a weakness here doesn't spell doom the way it might have in years past. The Falcons are going to use a middle linebacker as a part-time player, and that's probably for the best.
Dent is a useful player on running downs and Banks may have a ton of potential that we simply won't see for a little while, so there's upside here.
On The Roster
You'll note that I'm listing the rookies both inside and outside, because I don't know where the Falcons would line them up if they were to make the final roster.
