Mike Smith glad Falcons traded away five picks to Browns for Julio Jones

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith couldn’t exactly recall all of the details of his reaction on draft night in 2011.

“That’s so far away,” Smith said. “I’ve slept so many times that I don’t even remember it.”

All Smith knows is he got the player he had hoped for, even if the team traded five picks to Cleveland to get him. Julio Jones was well worth the investment in Smith’s eyes.

“Any time there’s a transaction and a trade, you’re making that trade to improve your football team,” Smith said.
