2011 NFL Draft: Atlanta Falcons Trade For Sixth Overall Pick, Select Julio Jones

The Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns pulled off the first trade of the 2011 NFL Draft. The Falcons selected Julio Jones, wide receiver, from Alabama.

The Browns received Atlanta's first rounder this year (27 overall), 2nd and 4th rounders and Atlanta's first and fourth rounders in 2012 in exchange for the sixth overall pick. It's pretty shocking how much Atlanta gave up, but good for Cleveland for adding a lot of picks - and high picks at that.
