Nfl Teams That Improved The Most Through 2015 Draft


Recommended Posts


Atlanta Falcons

Players selected: OLB Vic Beasley (1-8), CB Jalen Collins (2-42), RB Tevin Coleman (3-73), WR Justin Hardy (4-108), DT Grady Jarrett (5-137), OT Jake Rodgers (7-225), DB Akeem King (7-249)

The Falcons were the beneficiaries of some upheaval near the top of the draft, claiming the best pure pass rusher in Clemson's Vic Beasley. New head coach Dan Quinn came out of the draft with the edge rusher Atlanta has desperately needed for years in the Leo role, and also added Collins, who was the top corner in the draft in the estimation of Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar.

Jarrett is one of the steals of the draft at the beginning of the fifth round. A lot of draft experts started comparing him to Geno Atkins when he fell to Day 3 of the draft.

I'm not quite as high on Coleman or Hardy, but they are fits for a team that needed more certainty at the skill positions. They didn't fix tight end, which was a need area, but it was hard for them to do that with such a weak class at the position.
