The Atlanta Falcons' offense is poised for a breakout in 2024 after two dormant years under former HC Arthur Smith. New HC Raheem Morris brings in Zac Robinson as OC. The Falcons signed one of the biggest free agents, QB Kirk Cousins, to a 4-year, $180M contract to solidify the most QB position. Cousins was having a Pro Bowl-caliber season before his Achilles tear, with 18 TDs and 5 INTs. Atlanta also drafted QB Michael Penix Jr. with the eighth overall pick, one that was highly scrutinized given the team's more pressing defensive needs.

Defensively, the front seven has major question marks. There was a glaring lack of depth at the D-Line position prior to the draft, but the team used four of their eight total draft picks on the position to address this gaping hole. The starters consist of veterans Grady Jarrett and David Onyemata, along with promising 2023 third-round pick Zach Harrison at edge rusher that they hope can take a huge leap in 2024.

Looking ahead to the 2025 Draft, the secondary is the team's strength. However, it faces a dilemma, as star CB AJ Terrell is set to become a UFA in 2025. Terrell has 247 tackles and 43 pass breakups since being selected in the first round in 2020. It's hard to replace that production, but they can address this need at CB early in RD 1.

The WR2 spot opposite WR1 Drake London should be a focus. Rondale Moore was acquired via trade from the Cardinals, but is on the last year of his rookie contract in 2024. Darnell Mooney signed a 3-year free agent contract, but has a potential out in 2026. With another strong WR class expected, the Falcons could look to this position to complement London. Lastly, edge rusher is still a major need on this team. Luckily, this position is one of, if not, the strongest position group next cycle.
