Defense should be sole focus of 2020 Atlanta Falcons draft

The biggest fear that some fans might have is that the Atlanta Falcons won’t draft what they need right out the gate. Last year, the Falcons used both of their first-round drafts picks on an offensive lineman.

Yes, the offensive line was a weak point, but there would have been other solid offensive lineman available later on in the draft.

They could have addressed some issues on the defensive side of the ball and they chose not to. Here is what the Falcons don’t need to do with their early-round picks.

Even though there are people chomping at the bit for the Falcons to rid themselves of Matt Ryan, it would be absurd for them to target a quarterback early on in the draft.
