More information about Dante Fowler

Will Dante Fowler still be on the board at number eight when the Falcons pick?

New Atlanta coach Dan Quinn knows all about Dante Fowler, Jr. Quinn coached Fowler when both were in Gainesville at the University of Florida in 2012. Quinn was Fowler's defensive coordinator with the Gators.

So will Quinn want his former player with Atlanta's top pick in the draft? Most mock drafts do not have Fowler available at that spot. But could the Falcons move up to get Fowler, if they deem him the best pass rusher in the draft? Could Fowler somehow slip to the Falcons at eight?
