Falcons ‘aggressive’ in trying to trade up in draft, like Chase Young
The Atlanta Falcons are picking at No. 16 in the upcoming NFL Draft, but they would like to be higher than that.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported on Wednesday that Atlanta has been aggressive in trying to trade up. He says they like Chase Young and even tried to trade up to the No. 2 spot.

Though Atlanta made an effort, Washington reportedly “loves” Young and is not inclined to trade the pick.
Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff has a history of trading up and did so in 2011 to land Julio Jones, which paid off in a big way.
