    Trade Down!

    I say if we cant draft Calvin Johnson by either are pick at 7 or trade up we should trade our 7 pick to New England for their 24 and 28 first round picks and their 28 second round pick.


    Then i would like them to land

    First Round
    24 - Darrelle Revis, cornerback, Pittsburgh
    28 - Dwayne Bowe, wide receiver, LSU
    or Robert Meachem, wide receiver, Tennessee

    Second Round
    7 - Joe Staley, offensive tackle, Central Michigan
    or Tony Ugoh, offensive tackle, Arkansas
    28 - HB Blades, LB, Pitt


    * this is with the thought that we will land a star DE in free agency

    I'm not on the Calvin Johnson love train.
    Trade down, increase the odds of getting some starters on the roster.

    Re: Trade Down!

    No matter what draft value chart you are looking at (and I know they vary widely among teams each year), there is no way that the #7 is worth the #24, #28, and #60.
    NE would be getting screwed.
    A closer trade would have us trading the #7 for both first rounders and their third rounder.

    This would be a decent trade though.
    I am in favor of moving around in the draft because we won't get what we need at #7.
    We either need to move up for Joe Thomas or CJ, or down for more picks.

    New England Patriots are tight wades and I don't see them wanting the 7th pick or paying that player the kind of money a 7th overall pick gets.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Trade Down!

    Trading down or trading up doesn't make sense to me at this point.

    FA is first. Go after the guys you want to fill your needs there. After FA is over, then look at your teams needs, who in the draft meets those needs & where they might fall in the draft order.

    Then & only then does it make sense to make a decision to stay where you are at or trade up or down.

    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    This thread deserves more play, a much more realistic scenario....well, as realistic as any at this juncture of the offseason.
    Trade down and get more picks!
