Last season, the Atlanta Falcons traded away a key part of their defense when they sent Deion Jones to the Cleveland Browns. He was eventually replaced by last year’s second round pick Troy Andersen, who started five games for the Falcons and finished with 69 total tackles, three tackles for a loss, and three QB hits.
However, after Andersen there is room for improvement, with the other inside linebackers being Rashaan Evans, Mykal Walker, and Nick Kwiatkowski.
That is why linebacker Henry To’oTo’o would be a great player to pair with him to establish the interior linebacker position. In two seasons with the Crimson Tide, To’oTo’o had 205 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss, and 6.5 sacks.
The selection of Henry To’oTo’o, along with Bryan Bresee should give the Atlanta Falcons two players who can start right away and would significantly improve the run defense.
