Report: Falcons trying to move up from #16 in pursuit of an unknown prospect

New, comments

Who is Atlanta after?

NFL Combine - Day 1

The Falcons managed not to trade into the top 10, which is impressive restraint, but it appears they may still make a move.

Per a report from a couple of minutes ago, the Falcons are sniffing around a short hop to get an unknown player. It could be a cornerback like A.J. Terrell or Kristian Fulton, an edge rusher like K’Lavon Chaisson, or a defensive tackle like Javon Kinlaw.

We’ll find out in short order who they’re after—if they’re able to make a move up—but it’s interesting that they couldn’t sit pat and likely means someone just above them is after one of their preferred prospects. Dimitroff should never be counted out for a trade up, but it’s noteworthy that the team did not move up each of the last two years, despite rumored effort.

I’m hoping the pick will be Kinlaw if they do move up. How about you?
