Julio Jones To Atlanta Falcons After Browns Trade At 2011 NFL Draft

As has been rumored all week, Julio Jones became the newest member of the Atlanta Falcons at the 2011 NFL Draft. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported live that the team had pulled off a deal with the Cleveland Browns to give the Falcons the No. 6 pick and the right to grab the Alabama Crimson Tide star.

Schefter also reported the team tried to swing a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals to go get A.J. Green but couldn't make it happen.

Here's what was given up in the trade.
