FLOWERY BRANCH – We are inching closer to the start of the 2010 NFL draft.
Things are all quiet in the media room as everyone is reviewing all of their research materials. I brought along the latest issue of Smyrna Spartans Illustrated, just in case the Falcons reach into the fertile youth football ranks of Cobb
Actually, that might happen on Friday if they land North Cobb’s Eric Norwood, the All-American from South Carolina.
There is a lot of pre-draft talk about Philadelphia trying to move up to get either Texas safety Earl Thomas or Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan.
The first draft held in prime time figures to present a lot of trading activity.
The Falcons could be players in the trading action. They clearly want to get into the second round. If their guy is gone by 15 or so, look for them to drop back in the draft and focus on Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon or TCU linebacker Daryl Washington.
