After a quiet Friday without making any picks, the Falcons had a busy Saturday in the NFL Draft.
The Falcons made another trade and moved up two spots in the fourth round to select Charleston defensive end John Cominsky with the 135th overall pick. The Falcons gave up their seventh-round pick (230) to the Oakland Raiders to move up.
Cominsky used to be a quarterback in high school but has grown and bulked up to 6-foot-5 and 286 pounds.
In the sixth round, the Falcons selected Louisiana-Monroe wide receiver/running back Marcus Green. Green can also return kicks.
On Thursday, the Falcons selected both Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary in the first round to bolster their offensive line.
The Falcons introduced those players at a press conference Friday.
