Falcoholic Podcast: 2021 roster preview - defensive line

Can this be anything other than a sub-par unit under new defensive coordinator Dean Pees?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Our ongoing series previewing the Falcons 2021 roster continues with the defensive line. I was joined by Aaron Freeman of the Locked On Falcons podcast to break down one of the position groups with the most question marks on it. If you’ve come looking for sunshine and rainbows ... this podcast may not be for you.

Topics discussed include:

  • Why any defense that can’t feature Grady Jarrett is an indictment on the coach and not the player (don’t worry, that shouldn’t be the case with Dean Pees)
  • Why Dante Fowler could be a “meet expectations” kind of player and still not be a game changer
  • Why the success of this defensive front could hinge on guys like Marlon Davidson taking a big step forward
  • The “Kroy Biermann” comparison being used for both Jacob Tuioti-Mariner and John Cominsky and why that is not a bad thing
  • So much more
