Who do you think they are targeting?

Well, Cleveland is wanting to drop, so if it is Milliner, maybe that is the ticket. Not sure I see any TE worth moving up for, especially since Gonzalez will get all the throws again this season. They surely would not move up that for for a 3rd WR?

Maybe Werner or DB. TBay needs a DE really bad, so they could target the Dolphins for a trade. Screwing your division rival would also be a plus.

Really? I'd say that's a need on their list, but hardly their most glaring.

It is a message board, you are welcome to post what you think their glaring needs are. Nobody will neg rep you, well, unless SZ comes to a football forum.

On the DE topic, Ziggy might be their target.

Milliner. Moving up with Cleveland again for another Alabama guy.

Saban and Dimitroff has a good relationship. If Saban tells him Milliner is worth it, they'll move up. Add in Mike Lombardi, Brown's GM. 95' Browns connection. Lol

it wouldn't surprise me at all if it was Milliner. Despite them giving up a lot, the Julio trade worked out really well for them. The Falcons are just a few pieces away from a Superbowl so it wouldn't surprise me at all for them to give up a good number of picks to get their guy.

I could also see them looking at Ansah possibly, but Milliner is a good bet.

I think they're fine at DE with Osi and whoever else. They're really really bad at Corner with an aging Samuel only. They may be looking at Milliner or Rhodes. I Dno

I agree as I posted the Cleveland/Milliner possibility right off, but was just speculating as to the next reason why. All the way up to 6 from 30 will be very expensive for a CB. Dynamic DE's are worth it, just not sure CB's are.

Yea, you can also add in an OT (Fisher or Johnson). The falcons loss a primier RT in Clabo. Or maybe they're just trying to move up a few spot for a Fluker.

I would really LOL if it was for Austin.

It'd probably be overkill but I wouldn't mind just cause i love Austin and think we're a good slot receiver away from an offense that can maybe hang 500.

That said it's Milliner or Ansah i'd think.
