    Falcons looking to trade up

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...p-in-nfl-draft

    Maybe we could get an extra pick out of them? Especially if Rhodes is available. If he isn't and Ansah is, we'd probably just use the #19 on Ansah. But if Atlanta would be willing to trade, we could get an extra 2nd, and pick Arthur Brown, Okafor, and an OL...

    Didn't they just do this with Julio.....Don't know why they'd do it for a corner when there's so many good ones to be had by staying put.

    I could see them trading up for an Eiffert or Rhodes. Tony Gonzalez i thought was gonna retire, and Matt Ryan Eiffert would be a cool combo.But we'd move down to 30? and get a 4th? ehh..

    trade value chart says moving from 19 to 30 is worth 225 points... so equal to a high 3rd. The closest pick the falcons have to that is their 2nd, 60th overall.

    I would not mind that trade.

    especially in this draft....Unless theres a crazy BPA, id want to trade back regardless..

    Sounds good to me. I'd probably make that deal quick pending on who is actually sitting at 19.

    The problem is that 4th Round would be equivalent to the 30th pick, so it's really like a 5th. I wouldn't mind taking a Devin Taylor, Q.Smith or Dion Sims with the extra 4th.

    Where is everyone getting this 4th round thing from? Did I miss it?

    Toad,
    Oh man, Okafor and Brown would be dream picks for me. We could look at Winters or Bailey in 3rd for OG, but CB would please me even more.. maybe Slay, Wreh-Wilson, Mathieu, or Poyer? Hello!!!

    I don't think we pick a DB this draft unless it's a pure project pick for 2014 or an immense impossible value (say, Rhodes in the 2nd). The fact that we've got Prince, Webster, Hosley, Ross, and T2 on the roster at CB, not to mention Stevie, Rolle, Hill, and Sash at safety, means that unless a massive value CB falls to us, it's unlikely we pick one in the 1st. We'd have to boot one of our existing CB to do that. Yes you could find talent to crack that depth easily, but I don't think Reese would have signed T2 and Ross if he was expecting to draft someone...
