Falcons tried to climb to No. 2 overall pick

Thomas Dimitroff joined PFT Live on Monday to discuss all the work that it took to get up to the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.

They tried to get even higher. While Dimitroff denied reports that he made a concrete offer to the Bengals at No.4, Dimitroff told Florio he did speak with Denver about their No. 2 overall pick.

The offer would have been adjusted for the higher pick, so the Broncos could have brought in a bigger haul than the Browns received.

We presume that the Falcons would have taken A.J. Green and not Julio Jones with the second overall pick, but Dimitroff said the team wasn’t settled on that aspect of the decision yet.
