The Atlanta Falcons will most likely be taking a defensive linemen in the first round of this year's draft. They have already have an excellent core in place with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, but their defense could use some work. Atlanta has around million in cap space, and should look to spend some of it in the coming weeks.

The Falcons have needs across the offensive line. Even after the signing of Jon Asamoah, Atlanta could still use a guard on the other side to complete this line. While he may cost some money, Davin Joseph would be the best option at this point in free agency. Joseph is also a good stopgap until the Falcons develop a guard.

Jermichael Finley is only a year removed from being one of the best tight ends in the NFL. Early in the 2013 season, Finley suffered a spinal injury that would end his season. Since, Finley has received some interest, but many teams have concerns over his health. Tony Gonzalez is finally leaving the league, and the Falcons don't have many options to take over the starting job. Finley would be a low-risk, high-reward player for the Falcons.

Robert Ayers is the best pass rusher left on the market, and he has a ton of potential. Although he hasn't lived up to his first-round status, Ayers is an excellent rotational player. The Falcons need a more consistent pass rush, and getting a player like Ayers would provide depth across this defensive line.

2. Owen Daniels

The ex-Houston Texan is the better option at TE than Finley. Daniels spent eight years with the Texans, and he was the epitome of consistency with them. He was a safety valve for Matt Schaub, and defenses needed to game plan for him each week.

Anthony Spencer has flown under the radar so far in free agency. Spencer had a career year in 2012, but he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 2 of the 2013 season. Spencer has the ability to play in the 3-4 and in the 4-3. His best position is the outside linebacker position in the 3-4, but Spencer is versatile. The Falcons could sign Spencer for a relatively low price, and he would be a quality starter for Atlanta.
