Saying that the 2013 football season was a disappointment would be an understatement. The only good thing that has come out of this year is the potential for the Falcons to get some pretty decent draft picks. I believe the first two rounds of this draft can net the falcons two franchise cornerstones in a dominate defensive end such as Jadeveon Clowney, and a solid Left Tackle with a lot of potential in Antonio Richardson. These players would be immediate starters for the falcons and would provide an upgrade at each of their respective positions.
Let me know what you think!
