Among all the divisions in the NFL, the NFC South had the biggest transformation of their teams. Each team added key players in key positions that needed to be addressed from the previous season. These are positions that either limited teams from appearing in the NFC Playoffs or kept them from continuing their run. The New Orleans Saints were the winners of the NFC South but even they had key weaknesses on their team. This off-season, each team added high-volume offensive players to their roster. Every team in the NFC South will rely on their offensive playmakers in a highly competitive division. There will be significant weaknesses that were not resolved during the 2020 free agency or the 2020 NFL Draft that could derail their season. Here are the biggest weaknesses for all teams in the NFC South.

Biggest NFC South Team Weaknesses in 2020
Atlanta Falcons – Lack of Pass Rush

Much like the past numerous seasons, the lack of a significant pass rush has plagued the Falcons’ defense. Last season, the Falcons accounted for 28 sacks, which were tied for 29th in the league. Atlanta did not do much to address their pass rush especially after losing two of their top three pass rushers. Outside linebacker Vic Beasley Jr. (eight sacks) and defensive end Adrian Clayborn (four sacks) are both gone via free agency. Their top returning sackers are second-team All-Pro defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (7.5 sacks) and defensive end Takkarist McKinley (3.5).
