Any trade hinges on Falcons
and their desire for Dorsey. I have heard owner Arthur Blank is more set on QB Ryan. If this is true, Dorsey is out as a trading partner with the Rams.
I don't see the Rams dropping down past #6 with the Jets.
Pick 4: Oakland=McFadden They don't need Dorsey considering the crazy $$$ they spent on their DL this offseason.
Pick 5: Chiefs= Brandon Albert or Ryan Clady. They will go OL no matter what.
Pick 6: Jets=Gholston. He is the perfect fit for the Jets 3-4 and they don't need Dorsey.
So, if the Falcons really want Matt Ryan, the Rams won't have a trading partner. The Saints at #10 would have to give up their round 1, 2 and 3. They only have six picks. The Rams won't ake a 2009 pick if they offer.
So, as I have said before, thay leaves the Rams eeither Dorsey or Chris long. It WILL be Dorsey.

Re: Any trade hinges on Falcons
I don't think the Falcons will trade with the Rams - not unless the Rams take some ridiculously low offer like a 4th round pick or something - if Rams were going to take Chris Long anyway, maybe they would entertain that offer - doubtful though. I do think that Glen Dorsey is Falcons #1 target but Matt Ryan is probably a close 2nd.
Falcons need to keep all of their picks. If they trade up it won't be with their #3 pick to the Rams, it will be because their #3 selection was something other than Matt Ryan. I do think you will see Falcons package a couple of 2nd rounders to move up into 1st round to possibly select Brian Brohm......if so, they would not trade to move up for Glen Dorsey.
Sooooooo, I don't really see a trade with Falcons eauclaire - it only is going to make sense if Rams did not want Dorsey anyway - Falcons are not giving up a 2nd rounder to move up one spot to take Dorsey......won't happen.

Re: Any trade hinges on Falcons
My point was the only way this happens is if the Falcons wouldn't want Ryan at #3 and had to have Dorsey. From what I've heard this is not the case.
I think the Rams would swap picks and take C. Long in round 1 if they could add another 2nd rounder. If the Falcons could live with Ryan at #3 and look for a DT early in round 2, there is no need for them to make a trade.

Falcons will just "wait" and see what the Rams do......at this point, my guess is about 60% chance the Rams take Dorsey and 40% chance the Rams take Chris Long.........If I was Dimitroff, I would just "gamble" there and see what happens......Falcons have worked hard to get all these picks, they won't pizz them away so quickly......
Plus, it seems like Rams have been putting it "out there" how much they love Dorsey - I think it could just be "smoke". we shall see Don't be suprised if Falcons "try" to deal out of the #3 slot if Rams take Dorsey - I think that will be Falcons first option. If not, they will take Matt Ryan.....who knows, after we take Matt Ryan - maybe the Ravens deal the Falcons the #8 pick and #38 - ala the Manning/Rivers swap a few years ago....
