Passions run deep in the South! The folks in Atlanta and New Orleans LOVE their Falcons and their Saints.
But these two NFC South rivals do not like each other.
Atlanta Falcons Draft Highlights
With their first pick the Atlanta Falcons selected OT Jake Matthews. Matthews is not only a big, strong, and talented blocker but he's also the son of NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews.
On defense, they added the giant DT Ra'Shede Hagemana, a hard-hitting S Dezmond Southward and helped their linebacker corps by taking Prince Shembo.
Fourth round pick, RB Devonta Freeman is a tough runner with pass-catching abilities.
New Orleans Saints Draft Highlights
As if they needed another weapon on offense, the New Orleans Saints took game-breaking WR Brandin Cooks with their first pick.
Their defense got an infusion of talent with the additions of big and physical DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, thumping LB Khairi Fortt and S Vinnie Sunseri.
