The defensive line was one of the areas of focus for the Falcons during the offseason, and they were able to address some of those needs.

Allen Bailey, John Comisky, Marlon Davidson, Tyeler Davidson, Dante Fowler Jr., Charles Harris, Grady Jarrett, Takkarist McKinley, Deadrin Senat and Jacob Tuioti-Mariner all made the roster.

While they have 10 on the roster is not likely that all of them are will be active on game day. The Falcons are trying to improve on a lackluster pass rush that only registered 28 sacks last season.

General Manager Thomas Dimitroff brought in Fowler Jr and Harris along with drafting Davidson to help improve the pass rush. Fowler Jr is coming off of a career year where he registered 11.5 sacks. The Falcons hope that he can continue to trend upwards in his sack numbers and overall play.

Jarrett will anchor the defensive line again, coming off a pro bowl year where he led the team in sacks with seven and a half. He is also solid against the run and should continue to improve in that category. Jarrett will also be instrumental in the development of Davidson.
