Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

I want to trade down as well, but I have a bad feeling about it. I don't think trading down is easy to do, and I could see us using our pick because there aren't any teams willing to trade. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

[quote=JWsleep;258879]I agree about the d-line needs, but if we end up that high, we must trade down IMO. We have too many needs and not enough picks. Plus, as has been pointed out, top five D-line picks are risky business.

Stole my thunder! good post. TOO many holes.............trade down

Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

I'm all about Justin Smith myself if we're going to make a FA signing. He wouldn't command a huge amount of money.

i would rather adress dline through free agency. smith would probably be a good fit, isnt he good against the run?

id rather hit the draft for secondary needs or linebackers

this is a deep draft i think this year, so i think there would be plenty of teams trying to move up, of course depending on the pick we get.

brady quinn, calvin johnson, adrian peterson, gaines adams, jamarcus russel, leon hall, etc. really good draft year i believe

Yup, that's why I suggested him.

If we get a DE through FA, where do we go with our first round pick? I'm still all about trading it down to the second round and picking up some project LBs.

yeah some of us have been discussing this in the Xavier Adibi thread. id be interested in trading down and grabbing a secondary guy, or Willis if he is there (MLB Ole Miss), and maybe getting a guy like adibi in the 2nd or 3rd round

Just what we need, another project after sitting McIntosh on the bench this whole season. That additional 2nd round pick we traded to get him is getting higher with each loss.

Riding shotgun on my Justin Smith bandwagon I see

(by the way, what's up with Tweener? Jeez!)

Ok, back on topic. I like the idea of trading down

Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

Yes, after looking at prospects other than Freeney, and actually watching a Bengals game, I was hooked. I love the generic name, I cannot lie.

So what's your name? "Uhh...uh...Jus...tin...Smith?"

Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

If we do decide to draft a linebacker with our number one pick I would like to see us get Buster Davis MLB for Florida State. He is alittle undersized at 5'10 240lbs but he can stuff the run, and he is also a good pass rusher from his MLB position.

Re: Movin' On Up (The Draft Board)

Ideally I would love to trade down also, but we have got to be realistic, who would want to trade up? How many trades were there involving anyone in the top 10 last draft? And how many of those teams would have benifitted from trading down? If I can recall, the Giants and Steelers switched spots (it was like the 32 for somewhere in the mid 20's.) And the Broncos traded somewhere in the mid teens for the 11th(I think) pick. I don't have enough college knowlege to know how good any of these guys are, but are there any teams that need one of these players bad enough to trade up?

i think we go for a corner. carlos Rodgers isnt doing it, and springs is getting older. I think we are good a DT.
