D. Orlando Ledbetter, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports the Atlanta Falcons are focusing on adding overall team depth. The team started their meetings for the NFL Draft Monday, April 5. Falcons general manager Rich McKay said, "All of the evaluations are complete. The scouts are in this week and will be in again next week." The team's first draft choice is No. 47 overall after they traded their first-round draft choice for DL John Abraham. McKay added, "We'll bring in a bunch of prospects next week. Probably 20 to 22 guys that we recruit or talk to, or guys that we view as potential free agents if they don't get drafted."
