Falcons moving up?

21 posts in this topic

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.

As much needs as they have elsewhere, its def not for a receiver.

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.

It won't help if you can't keep your defense off the field, or keep Ryan upright. And for as much as you'd have to give up to get Austin, you're going to have trouble filling those needs.

Oh i'm in agreement. I just think it'd be fun.

GBNreport:

Meanwhile, there are rumblings out of Atlanta that the Falcons may be prepared to move up in order to secure one of this year’s top CBs. The Falcons haven’t ruled out making a really bold move and moving up into range to grab Alabama’s Dee Milliner - remember the Falcons made a similar move two years ago when they moved up from late in the opening round to select WR Julio Jones. And that worked out pretty well in Atlanta. More likely though the Falcons may end up targeting Xavier Rhodes of Florida State and/or Washington’s Desmond Trufant somewhere around the 20th pick.

I'd honestly be surprised if it wasn't some big bold move up to get millner.
