With No Football in 2011..Who's 1st in 2012

The Lockout seems to be getting worse and to be honest I am concerned about football in 2011.

And since the Newton Topics and the Draft Pick Topics are beaten to death I thought I would ask. Who would you target as the #1 Pick in 2012.

Obviously with Andrew Luck being the top prize (providing he doesn't pull a Locker) we could get a Kings Ransom for the #1 Pick. But regardless we would end up with a nice pick.

I am not up on the players coming out in 2012 other than Luck and possible Barkley.

If you had decision on the #1 Pick for us. Who would it be?

It would be nice for a team to do what the New Orleans Saints did when they drafted Ricky Williams out of Texas. They traded their entire draft for one guy. Not to wise on the Saints because Rickey Smoked himself right out of the league.

The smartest thing to do is trade that #1 to someone who will pay for Luck, imagine what that is worth. Then with all those picks we will be set in the draft for years to come, to fully supply Cam with the pristine ammo. Not only that but all these picks will be under the new CBA rules. It's time Hurney started investing in our future with our franchise QB draft wise instead of selling the future. I see this as a perfect opportunity for redemption.

Surley with all the picks we will get for 2012 and 2013 in the trade Cam will have a stud team around him. I see the trade for Luck at #1 as probably the biggest trade deal that will happen up to this point in history.

I can't see Luck not being the pick. The choice has to be trade the pick, unless Cam gets hurt or looks like Clausen. I think what San Fran or Miami would give up would make Ricky look like an absolute STEAL.

I could not imagine no football but if it is going to happen 2011 would be the best time, for us that is.

I agree trading the number one pick away would be adventagous but most likely we would still end up with at top 5 or 10 pick. I would like us to take a Stud CB. Or a mammoth LT to groom to replace Jordan Gross.

Draft Luck and let him and Cam compete for the starting position. The one that loses would still garner some nice draft picks.

or it could end up with teams thinking , the one that loses the qb battle doesn't have as much upside as originally thought, and they treat the qb like a backup in the nfl .. 2nd rd pick for them etc .

So nobody knows who officially gets the number one pick....I would think they would do a NBA Lottery type of thing with the top 8 or 10 teams...I would pray Carolina gets the first pick again so we could rape some team (probably San Fran) for some draft picks..

This... and with a rookie cap it would be feasible to draft two QB's # 1 overall two years in a row.

This was asked a couple months back and the rules would be the draft order stays the same.

We would have #1 pick.

I didn't take that into account , but regardless would that not mean luck would have a slight lean in the qb battle , since with last years rookie scale cam will make a butt ton of money while luck would have a much smaller contract ?
