5. Tyson Jackson, DE, Atlanta Falcons 

Jackson himself probably isn’t the solution to Atlanta’s pass-rushing woes, but he’s a solid start. The Falcons signed him to a mega deal to come help out their 4-3 on the line. He’s not the best pass-rusher in the world, but he’s absolutely turned into a solid defensive lineman and a stout defender against the run. He can work inside or out and should allow Atlanta to field a variety of lineups on the defensive line.
