KROY BIERMANN NEWS

Did the Atlanta Falcons have one of the best draft classes of the last decade?

Take a second and think back on the Falcons’ 2006 draft class … You had Matt Ryan and Sam Baker in the first round, Curtis Lofton in the second, and then Harry Douglas, Thomas DeCoud and Kroy Biermann later in the draft, too. That draft produced six full-time starters and a total of 657 games played, and in one year, they went from 4-12 to 11-5. Pretty good, huh? In fact, that...

Atlanta Falcons All-Drafted Defense

One of, if not the biggest reasons for the Atlanta Falcons’ struggles over the last two seasons has been the play on the defensive side of the ball. A big part of that has to do with the hit-and-miss track record of general manager Thomas Dimitroff in the draft, especially when it comes to the defensive side of the ball. My colleague David Schiele put together a list of the all...

The Atlanta Falcons are taking big strides to improve their defense

If the Atlanta Falcons want to build on what little success they had as a team on defense, they took a step toward that by re-signing sack artist Kroy Biermann. The outside linebacker was on the open market in free agency for a week before the Falcons brought him back. The team should still be in the market for a pass rusher with the 8th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on April 30. Biermann...
