FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff says it is rare for a team with the No. 6 draft pick to already have its franchise quarterback.

Dimitroff is free to consider talented options he can add to an Atlanta roster that already includes quarterback Matt Ryan.

Ryan signed a $104 million extension before last season and then was sacked 44 times, a career high. The Falcons' troubled offensive line couldn't protect Ryan or improve the league's worst rushing attack.

The Falcons could protect the big investment in Ryan by drafting an offensive tackle. Texas A&M's Jake Matthews and Michigan's Taylor Lewan may be available at No. 6.

Dimitroff also could pursue a big trade with Houston to select South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
