Falcons could move up in draft

Posted · Add Comment

It's possible that the Atlanta Falcons move up in the first round of the 2014 draft to ensure they get who they want, according to a report from ESPN.

The Falcons hold the No. 6 overall pick and are in need of adding depth the offensive and defensive lines. They've already addressed those needs in free agency, though they could add more youth in the trenches.

At the sixth overall spot, the Falcons would likely have the option of selecting outside linebacker Khalil Mack out of Buffalo, who's become a hot name and a sure-fire top 10 pick.

If the Falcons decide to move up, they could try to make a move on offensive tackles Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews, both of which could be top five selections.
