2014 NFL Draft Grades: Poll & Roundup For The Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have added nine players to the team via the 2014 NFL Draft. How are they being graded?

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

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.
