When the Falcons added Dante Fowler to replace Vic Beasley the natural question to ask was is he an upgrade.

While both guys careers have been wildly inconsistent for varying reasons, Atlanta Falcons Analyst Dave Archer does feel it is a very obvious upgrade.

"Fowler will be an upgrade because he's a bigger body guy to defend the run," explains Archer. "Beasley got pushed around, ran around blocks, and if you don't take blocks on you're creating creases in the defense. Fowler's ability to take on blocks, wrong shoulder things, stop things at the point of attack and make runners bounce or choose a different direction is going to aid in the run game."
