The Atlanta Falcons continued to build their defense with the addition of University of Missouri LB Sean Weatherspoon.
Weatherspoon's addition was needed because personnel evaluators said linebacker was a big weakness for the team last season.
Weatherspoon's speed is his greatest asset, but he's also great at diagnosing plays.
The talented defender fits in at WLB, but may be asked to compete for time at SLB this season.- Adam Caplan
