What is the Falcons biggest personnel move this offseason? The guys on Dukes & Bell talked about it, and some of their answers might surprise you.

Carl talked about the need for help on the defensive line but not the position most would think.

 “When we start talking about the Falcons and what their biggest offseason should be we think about the draft, because they don’t have unlimited funds, not that they won’t spend, but are we one, two, three or more players away?” Dukes said “When you start evaluating the biggest offseason moves, I just think with the season Grady had, if you pair him with a Derrick Brown from Auburn that changes everything, that’s the kind of player you need.”

Mike said he wants pressure off the edge addressed first and foremost.

“Defensive end, I’ve got to get someone who can pressure the quarterback and get him on his back.” Bell said “So for me that’s one, then get a guard to put next to Jake Matthews and Alex Mack, because we can't have Matt Ryan getting sacked fifty times every year.”
