The Atlanta Falcons pass rush was almost nonexistent for most of the season with only 21 sacks, which was the second-lowest total and only one ahead of the Chicago Bears. This is an area of their defense that needs to be a point of focus and there should be a number of impact pass rushers available when the Falcons are set to pick in the first round.
One of those players could be Tyree Wilson who spent the past three seasons with Texas Tech. In the past two seasons, Wilson has had 14 sacks and 27.5 tackles for a loss and was a key part of the Red Raiders’ defense.
Entering the NFL, Wilson is a little better run defender but he is a big edge rusher at 6’6″ and 275 pounds that has the highest ceiling as a pass rusher in this draft class after Will Anderson Jr. Wilson won’t solve all of the Falcons’ pass rush problems but it would be a great step in the right direction.
