Going into the draft initially, it was believed that the Atlanta Falcons were set on taking AJ Epenesa, a defensive lineman out of the University of Iowa. With a poor defensive front, this pick made a lot of sense for the value in which Epenesa is worth. Now that the Falcons have made key moves since the start of free agency, I feel the team takes a new direction with the number 16 pick.
The Atlanta Falcons need to address the loss of De’vondre Campbell. With Campbell now in Arizona with the Cardinals, this places the biggest void at the line back position.
