FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have made a bold draft-day trade to select Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones.

The Falcons acquired the No. 6 overall pick from Cleveland on Thursday night for a package of five draft picks, including Atlanta’s No. 27 overall pick in the first round this year and the team’s first-round pick in 2012.

The Browns also acquired the Falcons‘ second- and fourth-round picks this year and fourth-round pick in 2012.

The Falcons will pair the physical Jones with their Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White, giving quarterback Matt Ryan another top target.
