That would be interesting, but I don't see gallery making it past #4, san diego if they play thier card's right could walk away with a lot of draft pick's, a trade down to the #4 spot should net them a #2 and one more pick, and a trade down from the #4 spot should bring a lot more, they could double up on thier draft pick's, and in a draft as deep as this one they could rebuild that team in 1 year, if they evaluate properly.

Gallery Will Fall to Number Five

I really believe that if this Bolts-Giants traded goes through, then Gallery will be available at number 5. There is a chance that he'll go to Norvil at #2 over Roy Williams. But if the Raiders do go receiver, the Chargers will pick Roethlisberger, not Gallery. Nor do I think they will trade the pick.

There are a few reasons I think SD is the logical choice for Roethlisberger...

1. They get an elite college QB without the spotlight and pressure of the number one pick (AKA the Leaf-Vick Skirt-Wearing Effect Effect).

2. I keep reading that Schotty (especially) and GM AJ Smith are drooling over Ben while trying to maintain a straight face (AKA the Drunk Frat Boy Who Wants to Date Your Sister Effect).

3. Man-O-Man, do the Bolts need a QB. Flutie re-signed for "three years" (AKA the "Extra Strength" Brunell Anti-Aging Effect), but, well, that's about it. If that's how they're planning on going into the season, with freakin' Methuselah at QB, well, I wouldn't be getting too comfy in my SD digs if I were Marty or Smith. I'd be looking at planned communities with a golf course. Preferably someplace with a dry heat.

If the trade doesn't go through, I think the Giants will draft Roethlisberger and Gallery will fall to us anyway . The writing's on the wall for Collings. The Giants won't even broach the subject of an extension with him.

If we do get Gallery, then we could trade the number 5 and our fifth rounder (#139) to Cleveland for their number 7 and their third rounder pick, number 68 overall. Those trade values are pretty fair, with us coming out slightly ahead (AKA the A-Fair-Trade-Is-When-Each-Party-Thinks-They-Screwed-The-Other-Guy Effect).

If we do end up with the seventh pick and me having no clue what the Lions are inclined to do, I can only think of one thing that would come to mind:


Or maybe, just maybe, "Hello Mr. Taylor!" :thumb:
Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Normally, I agree that bad teams (Chargers are a bad team) need to consider trading down to get multiple picks. But if I count correctly, they already have 10 picks in this draft so I'm not sure that amassing more picks this year would be the way they want to go.

If the Raiders want Roy Williams they are going to trade down as well. Only further confusing the trade possabilties
