Pre-draft smoke and mirrors

Postby AngryJohnny51 » Fri May 02, 2014 8:09 am

Gotta love all the posturing!

According to Sports Radio 610 in Houston, the Atlanta Falcons aren’t interested in trading up to acquire the first overall pick in next week’s draft.

The Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans will not be working together on a trade for the No. 1 overall pick involving Jadeveon Clowney, SportsRadio 610 has learned.

Atlanta isn’t interested in moving up for Clowney.

The Falcons are interested in trading up to acquire a player they value above their spot at No. 6, but they do not believe that player is worth picking with the No. 1 pick. SportsRadio 610 has also learned that the player the Falcons are interested in is not Jadeveon Clowney.

Part of me hopes Falcons trade up for someone not named Jadeveon Clowney just so it can throw the fan base into a frenzy.

I mentioned it last week, the Rams are in pretty much the same situation as the Texans, thus we can play them off each other as neither wants Clowney.
