NFL Draft rumors: Atlanta Falcons unlikely to stay at pick No. 6


As we prepare for the 2014 NFL Draft, it is becoming increasingly likely that we will see plenty of movement at the top of the draft. One of the teams who is expected to do some moving is the Atlanta Falcons, who currently hold the No. 6 overall pick.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network passed along the report.

Rapoport said that the Falcons are interested in moving up, which would likely be to acquire Jadeveon Clowney or Khalil Mack, but they are also open to moving back in the draft if their top targets are off of the board. He has added that the Falcons “will be creative.”

With just over a week until the draft, this is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing drafts in recent memory and we will not know how everything will play out until NFL commissioner Roger Goodell heads to the podium to announce each team’s picks.
