INDIANAPOLIS–The Atlanta Falcons have gone full cycle and GM Thomas Dimitroff said this year’s draft and free agency period will be critical in reshaping the team’s roster and keeping the Falcons at the top of the NFC South.

“In 2008, we were the youngest team in the league and now we’re one of the oldest. We have difficult decisions to be made. We’re here to see how the talent compares to our talent,” Dimitroff said at the scouting combine on Friday.

“It seems like there’s a nice group of players on both fronts. There’s a nice safety group. There’s solid talent all the way down to 32,” Dimitroff said in evaluating this year’s draft class.
