The Oakland Raiders own the No. 3 overall pick in the first round of the draft Thursday, which they could easily use as an asset on the trade block.

The Atlanta Falcons could be one of those teams interested in trading up with the Raiders, as CBS Sports’ Clark Judge reports that they would like to select a top cornerback: Dee Milliner or Xavier Rhodes.

The Falcons own the 30th pick, while Milliner and Rhodes are projected top-15 selections. Trading up all the way to No. 3 may seem like a stretch, but if the Falcons are really desperate to land their guy, the Raiders should be willing to deal.
