As the Falcons' defense looks to improve on its 21st ranking from last season, CB Dunta Robinson, the team's top offseason addition, shared his thoughts on what it will take for the unit to succeed.

"It's all about confidence," he told PFW earlier this offseason. "When you step out on the field, you have to think that no one on the other side of the ball can beat you. You have to feel like you're the best player on the field. That's the kind of confidence you have to play with. That's what I come to practice with, and that's what I line up on Sundays with. It's not something that I'm trying to bring (to the Falcons). I think it's just in me. (And) I think the players are buying into it."

The 28th-ranked pass defense was the Falcons' most glaring weakness last season, which is why the team gave Robinson a six-year, $57 million contract that reportedly included $25.5 million guaranteed.
