The Atlanta Falcons continue to be a big part of storylines leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft that is now only a day away.

Most reports have the Falcons trading up to the Top 10, ESPN saying the Top 5, in the first round to get the player they covet. But who is that player exactly?

Jason Butt, who covers the Falcons for The Athletic, joined Andy and Randy with a pretty strong educated guess on who that draft prospect would be.

"I can only speak on what I know, and I know going back to the NFL Combine that Derrick Brown was really high on their list," Butt said.

Butt did mention linebacker Isaiah Simmons being a perfect fit for the Falcons but if they're looking to move into the Top 5, outside of Chase Young, he believes Brown is the guy.

"Chase Young aside, Derrick Brown would probably be the guy I would say (the Falcons trade up for)...that's the guy that seemed like he was pretty high on their list; especially going back to the pre and post combine."
