With the Atlanta Falcons still facing glaring needs on the defensive side of the ball, they got some good news on Monday. The team was awarded four compensatory picks, one of which is a fourth rounders.
These added picks provide the birds with more flexibility in regards to possibly moving up or down the draft board depending on various situations. Now having 11 picks, they can start to assert their efforts in making up for the Julio Jones trade, which was a home run. With these picks I expect the Falcons to go all out on the defensive side of the ball.
