I also question whether the Redskins would want to make that deal as they have their full complement of draft picks except the 1st.
Not sure how far Mosely could fall based on his injury history, but if we were to trade down, I'd probably prefer it be far enough that we could snag an extra 2nd round pick. IMO, we need a OLB more than a MLB (given we have Cole, Mauti, and Brinkley). I've read Mosely can play outside, but we could also target Shazier or Van Noy to fill that spot. Or go after Zack Martin and have him play LG. We could still get our QB at #40 (even if we had to trade our late 3rd to move up a couple of spots). And if we were lucky, get S Buchanon with that extra 2nd we picked up. You could mix up those spots somewhat too, depending on who you are targeting...Van Noy might still be there at #40, or you could take the QB of the future at the dropped 1st round pick (assuming you stay ahead of CLE at #26), or with the late 2nd maybe if you are willing to take the 5th - 7th QB off the board, and Buchanon or OG Sua-Filo would probably be there at #40.SKOL VIKINGS!

The first thing I think is that the big body, 300 pound plus athletes who can move are rare, and most drafts, there's a few of them that are picked earlier than expected because of it and the ongoing need to have those guys. Generally speaking, I'm thinking the demand vs. the talent drop off at LT will drive their value up at the last minute. And possibly at DT/DE too...
Secondly, while most online 'big boards' have 3 QBs ranked as top ten or fifteen prospects, that just isn't how people are talking about these QBs. Most comments talk about all of them being projects and having flaws and question marks...my gut feeling is growing that we will not see more than 2 QBs go in the top ten, and maybe only one.
And that there may be some pissed off posters around here if we let some of them slide by...
