Falcons keep focus on defense by drafting safety Neal

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Coach Dan Quinn targeted Florida's hard-hitting strong safety Keanu Neal as a new anchor piece for Atlanta's defense when the Falcons selected Neal with the No. 17 pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night.

There were reports the Falcons, who have only five picks in the draft, might trade down for additional picks. Instead, Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff said they wanted Neal as a difference-maker on defense.

Quinn said he sees Neal as a player who has the toughness to play close to the line like a linebacker and the pass coverage skills to defend tight ends and running backs.
