The Atlanta Falcons wanted to add to their defense at the top of the draft by trading up for Jadeveon Clowney, but that price tag was to heavy so the team made their choice on the defensive front today by selecting Re’Shede Hageman to play on the defensive line. Hageman has the talent of a top 10player, but didn’t produce like that type of player.
The Atlanta Falcons defense was 31st in the league against the rush and finished the season with 32 sacks, that was tied for 29th. The team also signed Paul Solai and Tyson Jackson in the offseason in order to help the team on defense.
Hageman should be a good upgrade to the defensive line and will be able to contribute immediately on defense. He could compete for a starting job,
