Atlanta’s defensive woes for the past few years have been well documented. While there was some massive improvement from 2014 to 2015, the Falcons finished in the middle of the pack (16th) in overall defensive ranking. At the strong safety spot, William Moore has served as the stopgap option for the last two years. However, with Seattle’s former Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn at the helm, we knew a change would likely be coming in this Draft. Quinn undoubtedly desired an enforcer with the hard hitting mentality and physical prowess of his former box safety, Kam Chancellor. With the 17th pick of the first round, the Falcons selected that man when they took Keanu Neal. Neal played strong safety in high school, but was asked to play both strong safety and free safety in college. In his junior season with the Florida Gators, Neal managed to net 51 solo tackles, 33 assists, one forced fumble, and an interception.
