What you need to know when the NFL Draft kicks off in one week.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have a handful of major needs and need talent and athleticism across the roster, and they have only five 2016 NFL Draft selections to get it done. No pressure!

With a week to go until the draft, it's time we started planning to follow along, particularly if the Falcons have some trades brewing in the first couple rounds aimed at landing more selections. That would be basically unprecedented under this front office, and it would create some more action before Sunday, when the Falcons have just one seventh round pick.

Here's what you need to know about the upcoming draft.
