FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff will hold his pre-draft press conference at 2 p.m. today at the team facility.
We have some questions for the general manager that I’ll send along with Michael Cunningham and the rest of Team AJC. (Someone has to pick up his freshman student from college today.)
The staff members will have videos, blogs and photos posted shortly after the presser. Also, more in-depth stories will post to MyAJC.com later in the day. (Feel free to stop back by!)
After Dimitroff gives an opening statement on the uniques and the depth of this draft, here are the first eight questions:
- Have you made the call to Houston and how much will it cost to move up to the No. 1 position?
- What’s the team’s priority – offensive line or pass rush. (Depends, who’s left on the board, but still a good question).
- How are the Falcons rating the tackles: Matthews, Lewan and Robinson?
- Is Robinson worth trading up for?
- What round do you plan to draft a free safety?
- What round do you plan to draft a tight end? (Mention Arthur Lynch)
- Can you get value at running back throughout the draft? (mention — Isaiah Crowell)
- Any interest in trading back in the draft?
