Summary

The Falcons brain trust snapped up former Baltimore Raven Courtney Upshaw on a one-year contract this offseason with the intention of playing him at strong side linebacker. Upshaw has excelled against the run in his career to date, and if deployed correctly could really bolster the Atlanta front seven's rather leaky run defense. Vic Beasley is poised to play Sam, with rookie De'Vondre Campbell playing Will, but Upshaw could provide a nice depth option in a pinch if either young player fails to perform. (August 7)
