The Atlanta Falcons are pondering a move back in this month's NFL draft.

Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported the Falcons are not opposed to dealing the No. 4 overall pick, though he opined Atlanta will stay put:

And that leaves the Falcons as a team to watch—one that’s going to have to make a decision on its pick with some complicated finances at quarterback (due to all Matt Ryan’s restructures), and a team in need of cheaper young talent with which to surround its core. My guess has been that the Falcons will stick at No. 4 and take a quarterback, because I don’t think they want to count on picking that high again and this happens to be a really strong year at the position. But I do know they’re open to the idea of trading the pick and have had exploratory talks with other teams on a deal that would have someone else moving up to No. 4.

It only seems right the Falcons should do their due diligence in fielding offers and see how much draft capital they might be able to acquire without sliding too far back in the draft.

The Miami Dolphins got a wealth of picks from San Francisco when the Niners traded up from No. 12 to No. 3. Might the Falcons be able to coerce a team like the Carolina Panthers or Denver Broncos to move up the board and cede future picks?

Granted, Atlanta should be looking for a big haul. The Falcons might have extended Matt Ryan's contract as part of a restructure, but could still be candidates to take a top quarterback in a class that is loaded at the top.

Still, the Falcons could scour the market and see if there is a deal that might stick.
