Reportedly a trade between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons fell through. The Browns became the Falcons new trade partner and swapped first round picks and received the Falcons' second and fourth round pick this year, as well as next year's first and fourth round pick. For some reason, we assume that the deal wasn't good enough for the Bengals so Cincinnati selected wide receiver A.J. Green instead.
Now that that's over. The rest of the draft can take place.
This is the second open thread for the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
