Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said Thursday that they’re open the possibility of trading up in round one, but will still consider moving back for more picks if the right opportunity presents itself.

There are a number of positions that we’re looking at more than other years,” Dimitroff said, via “I feel like in other years, we’ve been really homed in on potentially one or two, and we have a number of positions that we think can really benefit us at 26. … In our minds, it gives us an opportunity to consider — of course, we’ll always consider moving up — but also the idea of moving back as well because we feel there are a number of good players at 26 and beyond.


  • Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said he has not had contact with Khalil Mack and is not sure if he’ll attend next week’s voluntary veteran minicamp: “We’ve been focusing on the draft and the coaching staff has been working with the players that are here.” (Paul Gutierrez)
  • According to McKenzie, they have been in touch with WR Amari Cooper’s agent about possibly exercising his fifth-year option. McKenzie added that they don’t want to put the cart before the horse, “but we like Amari.” (Michael Gehlken)
  • Regarding the release of P Marquette King, McKenzie declined to go into great detail but said: “His contract was pretty steep.” (Michael Gehlken)
  • McKenzie said of free agent ILB NaVorro Bowman: “Nothing (new) there. He’s still a free agent.” (Paul Gutierrez)
  • When asked about the possibility of them drafting his son, Tennessee DL Kahlil McKenzie, Reggie said: “Our coaches like him.” McKenzie added that he has been trying to convince his son to convert from defensive tackle to the offensive line for a while now. (Paul Gutierrez)
  • As for former Raiders LB Aldon Smith, McKenzie said: “It’s hard because Aldon really tried, and we tried. But once you get into the program and you’ve got to send him away, there’s only so much we can do as far as getting our hands on him. But we hope and pray for the best for Aldon.” (Michael Gehlken)
  • LSU DE/OLB Arden Key said he met with Raiders HC Jon Gruden during his pre-draft visit and views Oakland as a good fit for him: “I felt at home, I felt comfortable, and as soon as I stepped in the building I felt like I was part of the team.” (College Football 24/7)
