The consensus among Atlanta Falcons fans and NFL experts is that the Falcons need defensive line help. However, with the recent signings of Tyeler Davison and Ra'Shede Hageman, the Falcons could go in another direction in the upcoming NFL draft. 

Specifically, LSU linebacker Devin White. 

In the 2018 season, Atlanta star linebacker Deion Jones was out due to injury for significant time. Duke Riley and Foye Oluokon could not pick up the slack for the linebacker corps in the absence of Jones. Oluokon is currently penciled in to start at weakside linebacker for the Falcons. LSU linebacker Devin White could be the missing link for a linebacker corps with only one potential superstar in Jones. 

A lineup with White, Jones, and De'Vondre Campbell as the starting linebackers could be just what the Falcons defense needs in 2019.
