The Falcons Want A Pass Rush. Where Will It Come From?

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

A thought exercise for a Thursday morning.

It's not great secret that the Falcons want to have a greatly improved pass rush on the field when the 2014 season rolls around. The easiest solution seems to be "add two great pass rushers," but while that will go a long way, it's not the only possible solution.

Let's say the Falcons can realistically get 40 sacks in 2014, which is a bit of a stretch given last year. Let's say they can put tangible pressure on opposing quarterbacks, enough to give them a better than league average unit. Where will that rush come from?

I'm not going to color the discussion by chiming in, so I leave it entirely up to you. Break it down by players on the roster and hypothetical signings and/or draft picks or take it by position and tell us how the Falcons can get to those 40 sacks, if at all possible.

Discuss!
