After a trade with the Redskins, Falcons take Baker

With the 21st overall pick

The Atlanta Falcons select

Sam Baker, Offensive Tackle, Southern Cal

Baker is 6’4” 309 lbs. and ran a 5.50 40-yard dash.

You go make yourself some lunch and when you come back somebody made a trade to reach for another tackle. I guess that’s the way things go. Baker will be Matt Ryan’s best friend but thanks to all the tackles taken in this draft this is a definite reach.

Details of the trade…

Falcons get No. 21, 3rd and 5th round picks. Redskins get two 2nd rounders and a 4th rounder. The trade looks really balanced but I like what the skins did here. Two second rounders are valuable in this draft.
