I have no problem with McShay offering his opinion on who we should draft, and I appreciate it just 

as much as the other 50 mockers.

 

But I could care less about his thoughts about us trading up or down.  He is talking about our

first round pick only, while Getty has a 7 round plan in place.  And I'm very confident Getty will

not trade up in this draft.

Giving up picks is hurneyesque


There was nothing Hurneyesque about the Falcons getting Jones. The Redskins getting Griffin.

Sure they could have obtained a plethora of what would have more than likely been average trash, but they elected to push for something great instead.

I understood the Redskins making the move for RG3.  If you don't have a franchise QB and you have the opportunity to go get one, you almost have to do it.  But the Falcons making that move for Julio?  Sorry, even a great WR doesn't make a big enough impact on the field to justify that kind of trade.  I'm not even sure if Megatron would justify that kind of trade.

I think we need at least 3 starting players out of this draft and giving up a 3rd would jeopardize those chances. We need a starting DB, OL and WR. We realistically need two linemen.

Unless the guy we are moving up for is a bonafid super star, we need every pick we have.

This is the truth.

 

However I think there's a chasm between what scouts know about prospects and what fans think they know about prospects.  To get to the point...there might be a prospect that the FO can be high on but we aren't.  It sort of makes the term "superstar" more subjective.

I'm saying how would you feel about moving up 7-8 slots. Giving up a couple mid-late round picks isn't going to jeopardize our future if we get our guy and he turns out as expected. Just trying to weigh all options and get some discussion going.

 

I personally don't like it because you aren't sure the person your moving up for will be successful. We did that for Otah, Everett, and Armanti. Not saying it won't work this time but unless your sure he is that great I dont see a reason to move up.

Now the only reason I would move up is if some elite OT or WR drops to 20 then you might have to do it but if they were falling that much were they elite in the first place?
