The Atlanta Falcons – who hold the No. 30 overall selection in the upcoming NFL Draft – are attempting to trade up for a higher pick in the first round, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. Hearing the Falcons are trying to trade up from number 30 in the first round, and not, obviously, for a quarterback. — Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) April 17, 2013 King adds that the team is obviously not interested in adding a quarterback in the first round, given the presence of Matt Ryan. At this point, the Falcons biggest needs are cornerback and defensive end. They lost cornerback Brent Grimes to free agency and cut veteran defensive end John Abraham. There have been rumors that the Falcons are hoping to move up in the draft to snag a cornerback. While the reports have surrounded cornerbacks, this year’s draft would appear to have more to offer in the way of defensive ends. Atlanta has shown its willingness to trade up aggressively in the draft if it targets a player. They did just that when they shipped out a bevy of picks for the right to draft wide receiver Julio Jones. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

NFL Draft 2013: Perfect For The Atlanta Falcons

When an NFL team has depth at almost all offensive positions, they only need to strategize on one side of the ball.

Atlanta Falcons Draft Outlook: Defensive End

With the draft being just around the corner, I decided instead of a full defensive end preview, I will incorporate a mock draft for defensive ends. The way this works is that for each draft pick I give a scenario where Atlanta would take a defensive end. Below is who I believe Atlanta will draft next week if they opt to take a defensive end in the first few rounds. There is a trade...

Trading Up, Why It May Be Easier Than 2011

I thought it was crazy, but I think a lot of things are crazy. Could the Falcons really be considering another Julio Jones type trade only one draft removed from the actual Julio Jones trade. When Peter King first reported it my line of thinking was along the lines of, "Well, what he means is that they've probably have had some internal discussions about trading. I seriously...
