South Notes: Jaguars, Cooper, Falcons

A look at the AFC and NFC South..

  • Various sources who spoke to Peter King of named Amari Cooper, Dante Fowler Jr., and Leonard Williams as targets they’d heard “reliably” linked to the Jaguars at No. 3. For his part, King says he believes there are some within the organization who want Cooper and others who want Fowler. Considering Jacksonville barely conveyed any interest in top target Blake Bortles prior to last year’s draft, it wouldn’t surprise me if the team ends up making another unexpected pick this time around.
  • While lots of teams are looking into moving down, the Falcons are a team looking to move up, according to Albert Breer of (on Twitter). Rival executives believe that their target is an impact defender.
  • D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution looked at Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff’s draft-day trading record. As the record shows, Dimitroff has been very busy in years past, including the 2011 blockbuster deal for Julio Jones.
