I'd imagine we resign ishmael since he can play safety too. We will also most likely draft an LB and/or bring a few in from FA.

Ishmael is a pure LB at this point.  We'll see if the Falcons resign him.

Falcons are probably going OG or DT in the 1st, but I wouldn't be surprised them to go LB in the 2nd or 3rd.

I don't see linebacker as a real need draft-wise. 

Here's what I wish:

1. Best free agent O Guard money can rent, repair the O line like we did when we got Mack.

2. Draft best D lineman available.

3. Draft best WR, TE, or safety available.

4. BPA

5. BPA

etc

edit:  This is assuming Ish is retained which should happen.

Should have kept Jermaine Grace. Spoon was a stupid signing and didn't do anything. Lost a promising depth piece. 

I liked Grace too, but let's be real.  He appeared in 11 games this year in his time with the Falcons and Colts.  Dude has 3 tackles in those 11 games.  He isn't exactly lighting it up.   I think he would have been a good Plan D guy, but he wouldn't have been much help this season..  and may not be for another season or two.

Depends if you like Beasley there, see Riley as more than ST, and see Ish as anything more than a backup.

I think they'll add somebody with some upside, but not a priority. Duke was drafted for a reason. They aren't spending a 1st or 2nd round pick on a LB, so I doubt they use back to back to back top 100 picks on LBs (Debo, Duke, top 100 this year). 

Our LBs aren't a problem. Neal is basically a quasi LB. I expect Duke to improve as he looked better after he came back than early on. I'd rather sign some cheap depth and use the picks elsewhere.
