Well, what if it’s all a waste of a trade? What if no one decides to take the Atlanta Falcons’ best man on their board, and somehow he ends up falling to the eighth pick which is certainly possible.

And trading up to the 4th pick would be quite the expensive move. The Falcons may have to give the Raiders their third round pick, and maybe their third and fourth round pick.

It’s a risk, and if Thomas Dimitroff and Dan Quinn agree that it’s not worth taking the risk and go with the “take what’s there” mentality, there are arguments that could be made on both sides.
