It was reported all throughout the week that the Falcons were one of the many teams looking to trade up in the draft.
Those reports came true tonight after the Falcons made a trade with the St Louis Rams, trading for their 22nd overall pick and selecting Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant.
Here are the details of the deal, according to Jason La Canfora
The Rams pick up 92nd overall pick and a 6th, while the Falcons move up and get a 7th rounder in 2015
