Wesley Woodyard

Obviously most of the attention in FA for the Falcons has been at Safety and the O and D Line, but I think it is important to remember how little depth we have at LB, especially that Nicholas is gone, and the fact that Spoon can never stay healthy. Wesley Woodyard is a very good player who had a poor year because the Broncos moved him form his natural position of WLB to MLB. He was also a team captain and a great leader on the field, which is something this defense needs more of, especially given all the 1st and 2nd year starters we expect to have this season. The best thing about Woodyard is that he is pretty good in coverage, and that is something that our LB core has been sorely lacking. I think a starting LB core of Spoon at SLB, Worrilow at MLB and Woodyard at WLB would be pretty good, and we can rotate in Biermann, Bartu and Dent as necessary.

I don't think that Woodyard is going to be asking for a ton of money as I haven't heard a lot of FA buzz around him, but I think he would be a solid pick up at the same price range or slightly more than we were paying Nicholas.
