The Falcons' draft was primarily focused on defense, with only Jake Matthews and Devonta Freeman on the other side of the ball. It was a draft that fit the teams' stated goal of getting bigger and tougher while also giving the team plenty of linebackers to roll into that 3-4 shift. I went over most of this yesterday here, so I'll keep it brief.
