The most recent rumor? Leonard Floyd may be a top-10 selection, meaning the Falcons will have no shot at him. With Atlanta's lack of draft picks to facilitate a trade up, it appears that Floyd will not be an Atlanta Falcon.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Floyd has been connected to the Falcons pretty regularly for months, and seemed to be a possible pick team. It comes as no surprise, as Dan Quinn favors tall, fast players. Floyd measured in at 6-foot-6, and ran an ridiculous 4.60 40. It was said earlier this offseason that the Falcons think he could play inside linebacker. It appears that does not matter either way, because the Falcons will have no shot at him.

The most likely options left are DE Kevin Dodd, Shaq Lawson, LB Darron Lee, Reggie Ragland, or even a trade back for S Keanu Neal.
