SI.com’s Peter King reported Wednesday that the Atlanta Falcons were contemplating a trade up for one of the draft’s top two wide receivers — A.J. Green of Georgia and Julio Jones from Alabama.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has attempted to downplay the rumor, but FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer is now essentially reporting the same thing as King.
Per Glazer, the chances Atlanta moves up are “very strong, if (the) right playmaker is there” early in the draft.
Falcons G.M. Thomas Dimitroff is “aggressively looking for (a) playmaker,” according to Glazer. Dimitroff has reportedly been in conversations with the Cardinals, Browns, and 49ers.
Glazer calls Cleveland “the most likely spot” for a Falcons trade. Earlier in the day, CBS Sports’ Clark Judge predicted that the No. 6 spot in the draft would be a “hot spot” for activity.
