Report: Falcons sending more personnel to Trey Lance's second pro day

Although the Atlanta Falcons are considering trading the fourth overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, they're still weighing all of their options, including whether or not to take a quarterback. 

Because of this, the Falcons will send three members of their personnel to Trey Lance's second pro day on Monday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero:

The attending staff will be different from the one that observed Lance's first pro day, Pelissero adds. This will give the Falcons six sets of eyes on Lance, which is similar to how they handled Justin Fields' workouts. 

The first three picks in the draft are expected to be quarterbacks, with Trevor Lawrence likely to be selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson expected to land with the New York Jets. Mac Jones is considered the favorite to land third overall to the San Francisco 49ers, but they are also considering Fields. 

If the Falcons select a quarterback, it would be the first time in history that four quarterbacks are chosen to open the draft. 

Atlanta has had trade discussions regarding the fourth overall pick, but it's unclear which teams might be interested.
