NFL Draft Rumors: Falcons likely trade partner for Texans’ No. 1 pick


The Houston Texans are trying to figure out with what to do with their first overall draft pick, including potentially trading down in the draft. If they’re looking to trade down in the draft, CBS’s Jason La Canfora suggests that Atlnata Falcons are their best potential trade partner based on a survey of league executives.

The Falcons could be eyeing South Carolina Gamecocks star Jadeveon Clowney.

The Falcons have the sixth overall pick, and the Texans could be convinced a quarterback would be available at the slot if they were to trade down.
