What Should The Falcons Do At Receiver?

New, comments

There's plenty of conversation around what the Falcons need to do at receiver. What do they need to do?

Kevin C. Cox

The Falcons are a team with some real weapons on offense, though those have been thinned out by Tony Gonzalez' retirement. The Falcons will be more reliant on their receiving corps this year, which means they have to put talent on the field from #1 through #4.

At this point, it's fair to assume that the Falcons will roll with Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas as their top three options. Devin Hester will be in the mix, as well. The question is, what do the Falcons do at receiver besides those four?

My preference would be to keep Drew Davis on as a fifth option, as he's a valuable special teamer and he's shown some real talent in limited snaps, but it's fair to argue the Falcons will go out and draft a young receiver with an eye on replacing Roddy down the line.

I'll turn it over to you guys. Will the Falcons address receiver?
