The Atlanta Falcons still have a few areas of concern depth wise, prior to the upcoming 2019 NFL season. There are still quality free agents that can help shore up those areas, should the team take care of some business.

The Atlanta Falcons have fixed depth issues at offensive line and defensive tackle, via the draft and free agency this offseason. Several pieces were added to the offensive line group. The most notable additions to the offensive line, were first round draft picks Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb Mcgary, along with free agent acquisitions Jamon Brown and James Carpenter.

The defensive tackle position was mostly addressed in free agency, with the signing of run stopping defensive tackle Tyler Davison being the key acquisition. Davison was signed on a surprisingly low one year deal and is the favorite to start at the one technique defensive tackle position. For more on Davison check out this article.
