I'd take the second, but only because that first trade is a horrible offer. If the Falcons aren't going to give us their 2nd to move up to 6, I would expect at least a third this year and a day 1 selection next year.

If somebody in the 7-10 range wants to trade up, it will cost them a 2nd rounder.

Actually now that I think about it, I'd just tell those teams to "screw off" and keep the No. 6 pick and take Okoye with it. They can take those rip off offers to Arizona.

Re: The downside to trading down.

the more I think about last season, the more I think that LL should be a consideration. I'm still a believer in the d-line problems being big, but if we could have just generated an average number of turnovers against other teams we could have easily won 4 more games and made the playoffs. We have enough money to sign one more free agent DT and there are a couple out there that could help in a rotation (scott...) or improve things a good bit.

I wonder what the skins are really planning to do????????

We have glaring needs, and we need the draft to address these needs.
Not that it matters, but neither of those 2 will be available.
I'm not saying draft quinn or russell if they fell, teams would want to trade up to our pick to get either one of those guys and would probably give up a lot.

That's true...and we will see a trade take place if those 2 are still available at our pick...but I doubt that will happen.
I just don't forsee a lot of teams trying to trade up this year...but I could be wrong.

I don't think this is a bad thing...if we get Okoye we'll get a truly gifted athlete that can be a force in the middle for us for at least a solid decade.

I'm not concerned whatsoever. I have faith that the FO will do the right thing. I like Okoye and Adams

Re: The downside to trading down.

Oh yeah, and we NEED Gaines Adams more than we need Okoye, but I am betting Adams will be gone before our pick.

Lets say that Hypothetically we got Adams. Which DE does he replace if any? IYO

I'd have him and Carter as the projected starters.

It's the only logical choice...but like I said before, he'll be gone before we have a shot at him.

He could be, but if he is still there I bet we nab him.

I don't think there is any doubt we will.
I think if both Adams and Okoye are available, we'll take Adams. Otherwise, we'll take Okoye. If both are gone, I think Landry will be our choice for as much as I don't like choice, I know they are thinking it.
