Falcons free agency 2019: Edge rushers may abound for Atlanta

The Falcons have muddled along for too long without an elite pass rush. The last time they had anywhere close to one, they had Patrick Kearney and John Abraham paired up on their defense line, and Abe was a one man wrecking crew in his own right. The solution to the Falcons’ ongoing woes could be found in this draft class if they fare well, land a player with the 14th pick who can pair with a (hopefully) emerging Takk McKinley, and continue to get quality contributions from the likes of Grady Jarrett and Jack Crawford.
