Although the team re-signed Cordarrelle Patterson and brought in free agent Damien Williams, the Falcons are likely going to look at taking a running back in this month’s draft.

One of the top prospects at the position is Florida running back Dameon Pierce, who is likely to be drafted sometime in the middle rounds. While he may not be considered as the first running back off the board, he has the potential to contribute in the NFL as early as next season. He would also follow the pattern of Florida Gators joining the Falcons, as Kyle Pitts was teammates with Pierce in Gainesville for two years.
