Falcons trade up for Tak McKinley


The Seahawks held the 26th pick in the draft. Until the Falcons acquired it from them.

Atlanta moved up from No. 31 to select pass rusher Takkarist McKinley from UCLA.

He gives the Falcons a bookend to Vic Beasley, on a defense that quickly has become one of the best in the NFL under Dan Quinn.

The Seaahwks will now slide into the No. 31 spot, and possibly could slide down even farther.

    The Falcons ranked 27th in points allowed last season and gave up 31 unanswered points in the last game they played.

    How exactly did you come to the conclusion that they have one of the best defenses in the league!?!?!
