According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport the Atlanta Falcons are plotting ways to move out of their pick at sixth overall in the 2014 NFL draft.
The Falcons hosted South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney on a pre-draft visit, which has prompted speculation that Atlanta might be interested in moving up to the top spot in the draft in a trade with Houston. Rapoport reported that no talks have taken place at this point between the two clubs.
Rapoport does indicate however, that the possibility exists for Atlanta to move back to a lower position in the top 10.
With a stacked Top 10, it appears unlikely #Falcons actually stay at No. 6. Could move up. Also very open to moving back. Will be creative

Over the weekend we contemplated whether the Bills would make a move up the board and cited Atlanta’s spot at six as a potential target. It’s likely the Falcons will be talking with a host of different teams in the nine days before the draft begins.
