Falcons make 1st round move, get UCLA defensive end McKinley

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons continued their relentless effort to overhaul their defense by moving up in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night to select defensive end Takkarist McKinley of UCLA.

The Falcons traded the No. 31 overall pick and this year's third- and seventh-round picks to Seattle on Thursday night to take McKinley with the 26th pick.

General manager Thomas Dimitroff said he and coach Dan Quinn did not hesitate to trade away picks later in the draft to land the pass rusher they wanted.
