OT:  Both spots could use an upgrade, they may draft a LT and then be able to move Bushrod to RT.
ILBs: Bostic is a 2 down player and it's unknown how Foster will fit in a 3-4, neither player is an elite athlete.
Pass Rusher:  Allen is 33, McPhee is good but not a top level pass rusher.
QB:  Is Cutler the long term solution in Chi Town?

TE:  Tony Gonzalez retired after 2013, they failed to find an adequate replacement last year.
MLB:  Quinn will want a fast stud MLB similar to his MLB in Seattle, Bobby Wagner.
#2 WR:  Jones is a star but Roddy will be 34 next year. Losing Harry Douglas will hurt more than most Falcons fans think.
RB:  New coordinator Kyle Shanahan wants to be more balanced, he will need an every down back to achieve that.
LG Upgrade
