Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green has signed with Creative Artists Agency, the home of super agents Ben Dogra and Tom Condon.
CAA also represents several Falcons, including quarterback Matt Ryan.
Green, of Summerville, S.C., is being projected to go in the top 10 of the draft.
“A.J. is going to be a fine addition to an NFL team and a major impact contributor in this league,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “Giving his combination of size, athleticism and big-play making ability, he’s going to do some excellent things in this league.”
The Falcons select 27th and will not have a shot at Green, who was a three-year starter at Georgia and ranks third in school history in receptions (166) and receiving yards (2,619) and second in touchdown catches (23).
It would be pretty costly, but should they trade up to get him?
