Jadeveon Clowney singled out the Atlanta Falcons as a team he'd love to see trade up and draft him.

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff told NFL Media's Kimberly Jones on Monday he was flattered by Clowney's interest and that his team would consider every option in the drift.

"Look, like I've said, I've been very clear about this, we will always be open for business," Dimitroff said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We will always be open to move up and back, depends on what's right for us. Again, I feel really comfortable with where we are at six, but there are opportunities on both sides of six."

During his podium session at the NFL Scouting Combine, Dimitroff singled out the offensive and defensive lines as the Falcons' key offseason targets.

The general manager said the team will take every avenue to fill the pressing needs to protect Matt Ryan and pressure the opposing quarterback.

"In the draft, we are real excited about what's in the draft, offensively and defensively," Dimitroff said. "We also think there will be some legitimate opportunities in free agency. That's what it's about, taking every thing into consideration. We know where we need to go. We know what we need to tweak and adjust."

If Clowney isn't taken by the Houston Texans at No. 1 overall the possibility exists that the St. Louis Rams might look for a trading partner at No. 2.

Falcons GM brushes aside interest in improving pass rush

LOL!

So let me get this right.

If TD falls in love with Clowney and trades the farm for him, he's an idiot.

If TD brushes aside Clowney's request to trade the farm for him, he's an idiot.

And you actually think that makes sense??????

Maybe because TD is just an idiot.

Or maybe there are just completely and totally unrealistic expectations here. He took over and has done FAR better than several other teams GMs have done for them. There may be 5-6 teams that have had a better run over the last 5 years.
