Atlanta Falcons

Perfect draft pair: Wisconsin LB T.J. Watt (Round 1, pick 31); Western Michigan OT Taylor Moton (Round 2, pick 63)

Jeremiah on Watt: Atlanta could use an edge rusher, somebody who can complement who they already have there to close out games, which is something they couldn't do in the Super Bowl. You throw him on the other side of Vic Beasley and let those guys get after quarterbacks.

Brooks on Moton: He's a physical player. I like the way he controls it at the point of attack. You can play him outside, (but) I think he can kick down inside and play guard. This team has gotten better as they've added pieces to that offensive line.
