D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta Falcons beat writer for the AJC joined Sam and Greg to talk about the NFL draft. With the NFL draft approaching on Thursday, we are all wondering what the Atlanta Falcons will do at pick 16. Sam asked Ledbetter would the Falcons go defense, as we all want them to do. He also specified that if they do go defense, would it be on the defensive line or the secondary.


D. Orlando Ledbetter said that the Falcons have many options at the sixteenth pick. Two names that have been floating around the Falcons organization are Javon Kinlaw, (DT out of South Carolina) and CJ Henderson (CB out of Florida). According to Ledbetter, he said the Falcons are willing to make trades either up or down. They would need to trade up if they want Javon Kinlaw. He also said that they need to sure up their offensive line, so they may trade back to accumulate picks.
