NFL Draft 2013: Atlanta Falcons Have Strong Interest in Jamar Taylor


The Atlanta Falcons have been named as a team that could have interest in trading up in the 2013 NFL Draft, but it looks like they have their eyes set on a certain prospect if they are forced to remain at the bottom of round one. When the Falcons are on the clocks at pick No. 30, Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor is the most likely player to join the “Dirty Birds.”

According to NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline:

I continue to hear the Atlanta Falcons have intense interest in Jamar Taylor/CB/Boise State.  Pencil him in for the 30th pick of the draft if the Falcons don’t make a move or have a big time pass rusher fall into their lap.

Taylor started all four years at Boise State and he would be a perfect fit opposite Asante Samuel in the Falcons defense.

The former Broncos star put together an incredible draft season with breakout performances at the Senior Bowl and Scouting Combine. If he’s on the board when the Falcons are on the clock, don’t be surprised to hear Taylor’s name called.
