Falcons almost traded up into the 3rd round


Recommended Posts

Falcons tried to trade up for Quincy Williams but couldn't get it done and Jags snagged him.

We're also in the rumor mill wanting to trade for Darron Lee.

Check out @RapSheet’s Tweet:

What other LB prospects do you guys think fits our style? We are clearly looking for LB comp on the team and maybe setting up to replace DeVo next year.

Tbh, I'd love to make some trades. Any of these would be stellar.

1) trade our 4th comp, normal 5th, Ram's 6th to move up to the top of the 4th and draft Chauncey Gardner-Johnson

2) trade a 6th for Darron Lee (heard that's what the Jets want, fine with a 5th possibly though)

3) 49ers want a 4th next year for Solomon Thomas, I'd be down for that too

Trading for these former first round picks is great value. The cap hits that come w them are minimal and you can see if a scheme and coaching change can reignite them.

i didn’t realize until hearing about the Rosen trade how cap friendly it is. Rosen will only cost the Phins like $2M per season!!

no need to add 7 late round picks to the roster, they can’t all make the 53

Falcons had a Top 30 visit from North Carolina LB, Cole Holcomb, and a private workout with Akron LB, Ulysees Gilbert.

Wouldn't mind any of those.

Also would be in favor of trading one 5th and one 6th to get a late 4th.  Then we'd have 3 picks in the 4th, and one in each remaining round.  Those three 4th's could be put to good use.
