  1. vaughn mcclure @vxmcclure23 · 17m17 minutes ago Bobby Turner will be the Falcons RB coach, not Gerald Brown.
  2. Ian Rapoport @RapSheet Big change of plans: #AZCardinals DC Todd Bowles will now head to #NYJ first, then talk with #Falcons. Question is will #Jets let him leave? Ian Rapoport @RapSheet · 21m 21 minutes ago 2 years ago, Mike McCoy had a visit to #Chargers, then one with #AZCardinals. SD never let him leave town. Jets may do the same with Bowles Ian Rapoport @RapSheet · 40m 40 minutes ago Notes from my time on @NFL_AM today: #Bears job is the 1 John Fox wants, and he’s expected to interview. May not get #Falcons consideration
  3. vaughn mcclure ‏@vxmcclure23 13h NIU safety Jimmie Ward was one of the primary players the Falcons wanted to trade back into the first round to get. Picked by 49ers at 30 That one trade would have changed our whole draft.
  4. HOUSTON -- Texans general manager Rick Smith, in an exclusive interview Wednesday afternoon, said he has had "enough conversations to legitimately move" from the first overall pick. Smith did not disclose any potential trade partners or the seriousness of any potential deals to quantify how legitimate things stand on the eve of the draft. Smith added that Houston might not be willing to move the pick because of the players that they've targeted. He added that any deal, as always, comes down to compensation. To move to No. 1, the compensation would be hearty -- which is why there is such infreq
  5. Jadeveon Clowney - DL - Player ESPN's Ed Werder reported late Wednesday that the Texans haven't given up hope on trading out of the No. 1 overall pick. "They intend to be flexible to the point where a trade could be completed while they're on the clock," stated Werder. Werder reiterated that the Texans would likely target a quarterback were they to move down, specifically UCF's Blake Bortles. If Houston is unable to find a trade partner, it's expected they'll take South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney. A trade with Atlanta remains in play. Related: Texans

  7. There’s a real possibility that Eric Berry is traded on draft day, with the Falcons being most likely. The price tag is something around a second-round pick. http://optimumscouting.com/uncategorized/state-of-the-draft-what-ive-heard-and-whos-going-where-this-draft-weekend.html
  8. Looks like the Fins like him in the 1st round(If it is not smoke) Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 13m Also long with great feet. Could be #Dolphins 1st rounder RT @ArmandoSalguero: Phrase I keep hearing about Ja'Wuan James is "plug and play."
  9. Browns could be plotting to snag a tackle Posted by Mike Florio on May 4, 2014, 8:45 PM EDT Getty Images When Browns G.M. Ray Farmer openly gushed about receiver Sammy Watkins, it became clear that Farmer hopes someone takes Watkins before the Browns pick at No. 4 — unless Farmer has gone next level with his smokescreening. Assuming Farmer was engaging in a more basic misdirection, the question becomes who do the Browns want, if they don’t want a wideout? Despite a glaring need at quarterback, the Browns could be planning to take a tackle. Even with Joe Thomas anchored on the left side an
  10. 11:09 a.m. ET - There hasn't been a ton of talk regarding UCLA OLB Anthony Barr, but I expect him to come off the board within the first eleven picks in the draft and possibly as high as No. 6 to Atlanta, if the top three offensive tackles are taken within the first five picks. The Falcons have put Barr through three workouts during the pre-draft process, which makes me believe he's their fallback option at No. 6, if the three tackles go early. Barr reminds me alot of a young DeMarcus Ware in the way he can dip and bend coming off the edge, and he has a huge upside since he's still just lear
  11. Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 12m #Texans GM Rick Smith will address reporters at 4 pm. Eastern today to discuss No. 1 (& other stuff). We’ll carry it live on @nflnetwork
  12. Browns having the extra picks did not help them at all. Our GM has missed on a bunch of picks, so take the talent and not the later picks.
  13. Polian's take on Falcons trading up April, 28, 2014 APR 28 1:50 PM ET By Vaughn McClure | ESPN.com RECOMMEND1TWEET10COMMENTS0EMAILPRINT There has been plenty of discussion over the past few days about the possibility of the Atlanta Falcons trading up to the No. 1 overall pick in order to select top prospect Jadeveon Clowney from South Carolina. Well-respected writer Peter King probably nailed it best in The MMQB when he said there's about a 40 percent chance the Falcons will make the move to secure the coveted pass-rushers. I only see it happening if the Houston Texans, owners of the first se
  14. There have been objections to moving the draft back, but waiting till May 8 gave injured players like Aaron Murray, Zach Mettenberger and Cody Latimer a chance to demonstrate they were healthy enough to be drafted higher. The extra two weeks also gives me a chance to form a better opinion on players' values, like the following five players I see as non-first round talent but can help a team early. LSU safety Craig Loston: I watched tape of Loston vs. Mississippi liked what I saw. He plays like a strong safety but has the coverage skills to be a half-field safety in Cover 2 and he understands r
  15. Falcons bringing in Towson's West for visit April, 16, 2014 APR 16 2:50 PM ET By Vaughn McClure | ESPN.com The Atlanta Falcons obviously are impressed with at least one small-school running back. Towson University's Terrance West, a player the Falcons reportedly worked out privately, is scheduled to visit the team next Wednesday, according to a league source. The 5-foot-9, 225-pound West opened eyes with an impressive performance during his pro day. He is projected as a third-round pick after leaving school a year early. In three seasons at Towson, West rushed for 4,849 yards on 802 carries
