Falcons GM Dimitroff says he’s willing to trade up again

A year ago, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff shipped a raft of draft picks to the Browns for the right to pick Julio Jones. Though he now has fewer picks this year, Dimitroff told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently that he would make such a move again if he had to.

“If you feel that you want to package picks to go up and get the player that you feel can help the team, well, then you use your draft picks as fodder to go after that player,” Dimitroff told the newspaper.

As things stand now, the Falcons, who gave their first- and fourth-round picks to the Browns in that trade, won’t make any picks Thursday until the second round comes along.
