Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Insider reports that the Falcons have “intense interest” in Boise State CB Jamar Taylor. Pauline adds that you can “pencil him in for the 30th pick” if Atlanta doesn’t trade up for someone else.
The Falcons have an obvious need a cornerback now that they’ve lost Brent Grimes and released Dunta Robinson this offseason. Other corner prospects like Alabama’s Dee Milliner and Washington’s Desmond Trufant have also been mentioned as speculative targets for Atlanta, while some believe they could also consider a defensive lineman or a tight end in round one as well.
We have them taking Jamar Taylor at No. 30 overall in our recently updated 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
