Falcons' GM says He's Had Offers for No. 3 Pick

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff says he has heard from teams interested in moving up to the Falcons' No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Dimitroff, in his first year as general manager, said Monday "Right now there's nothing concrete at all" in talks with teams interested in moving up in the first round Saturday.

The Falcons, only 4-12 in 2007, are believed to be considering several players, including Louisiana State defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey and Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan, with the No. 3 pick. Dimitroff also could consider trading the pick.

"We've obviously gotten phone calls," Dimitroff said. "I don't want to necessarily mention who they are right now, but there's definitely been some interest."
