Thinking ahead to next year.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Between Ryan Schraeder, Robert Alford, Ricardo Allen, and Paul Soliai, there were plenty of worthy choices for most improved Falcon in 2015. Now we're going to look ahead to 2016, and try to figure out who will be most deserving of the honor next year.

The obvious choices are young players with a lot of room to grow, which is why my pick would be Vic Beasley. He had a perfectly solid rookie season, especially considering his torn labrum, and has a ton of talent and potential. I could easily see him going from four sacks to eight sacks or more in his second year, with an accompanying rise in the pressures he's generating.

Other obvious choices include Ra'Shede Hageman, who made strides but didn't become the destroyer we all though in 2015, and Jalen Collins, who was abjectly mediocre in his rookie year despite his obvious talent. I'm interested to hear who you'll come up with.
