The Atlanta Falcons have eight selections in the 2015 NFL draft, including the eighth overall pick.

The Falcons finished 6-10 and had a chance to win the NFC South and enter the playoffs, but were blown out at home in Week 17 by the Carolina Panthers. Coach Mike Smith was fired after the season and replaced by former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

The team’s most significant offseason moves were signing tight end Jacob Tamme and re-signing veteran defensive end Kroy Biermann.

Atlanta also picked up linebacker O'Brien Schofield, cornerback Phillip Adams and defensive end Adrian Clayborn in free agency.

Below are the selections Atlanta has in the draft:

Round 1, Pick 8 (8th overall)

Round 2, Pick 10 (42nd overall)

Round 3, Pick 9 (73rd overall)

Round 4, Pick 8 (107th overall)

Round 5, Pick 10 (146th overall)

Round 6, Pick 9 (185th overall)

Round 7, Pick 8 (225th overall)

Round 7, Pick 32 (249th overall)
