Coming off a disappointing year, the Atlanta Falcons made some big roster changes in the offseason. The Falcons signed Todd Gurley and Dante Fowler while releasing long-time running back Devonta Freeman.

To compete with the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South, the Falcons will need to fortify their roster in the 2020 NFL Draft, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.

With that in mind, here's a look at the consensus breakdown of multiple, full seven-round mock drafts for the Falcons.
