D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal believes Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff could be looking to trade up for cornerback in this year’s draft. Ledbetter is basing this on an assessment of Dimitroff’s draft history and the fact that they could really use another cornerback to round out their secondary. Atlanta released Dunta Robinson early on in the offseason and lost Brent Grimes to the Miami Dolphins during free agency. Currently, the Falcons have Asante Samuels, Robert McClain and Dominique Franks at cornerback, so it really does make sense for them to address the position in the early portion of the upcoming draft. While it seems unlikely that Dimitroff would move all the way up to the top-ten for Alabama’s Dee Milliner, he did make a similar trade up for WR Julio Jones just a few years ago, so it’s at least a remote possibility.  A more realistic trade could be to move up into the top 20 and possibly target someone like  Florida State’s Xavier Rhodes or possibly Washington’s Desmond Trufant. It’s worth noting that there’s a decent enough chance that Rhodes could be gone by then.  Trufant has already visited with the team, but Ledbetter sounds convinced that he won’t be available to them at No. 30 overall. Other speculative options suggested by Ledbetter include Mississippi State’s Jonathan Banks, Houston’s D.J. Hayden and Boise State’s Jamar Taylor.   The post Falcons Looking To Trade Up For CB In This Year’s Draft? appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
