Here’s what Falcons fans can expect for the 2014-2015 season.
Superstar quarterback Matt Ryan is hungry for more wins this year, so management brought in some offensive studs to help him out. In the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, the team picked up offensive tackle Jack Matthews. Expect Matthews to start at right tackle, but rumors have it that he might move to left tackle depending on Sam Baker’s performance.
Kick and punt returner Devin Hester, a free agent from the Chicago Bears, is a special teams weapon, who knows how to put points on the board. Hester has returned a record 19-combined punts and kicks for touchdowns in his career. The Falcons may use Hester solely as a returner, but his experience as a wide receiver may also come in handy. This gives the team more depth behind star wide receivers Roddy White, Julio Jones, and Harry Douglas.
Devonta Freeman, the Falcons’ fourth-round draft pick, will serve as a solid replacement for the retired running back Jason Snelling. Expect him to boost the Falcons already solid running back corps that includes Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers.
A Pumped-Up Defense
To really dominate 2014, management picked up some talent in the off-season to help address one of the Falcons weak spots: the pass rush. The Falcons chose Ra’Shede Hagemen out of Minnesota in the second round of the draft. This 6-foot 6-inch, 310-pound pillar’s is sure to create hurdles and put pressure on any quarterback he faces.
The Falcons also acquired free agents Paul Soliai and Tyson Jackson, who will go along way toward implementing the rumored 3-4 defense scheme. Rounding out the new and improved defense are two new draft picks: Dezmen Southward and Ricardo Allen.
These new acquisitions plus star linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and defensive ends Kroy Bierman and Osi Umenyiora are out to reset/remake the Falcons defense.
