I like where we sit at #9 and #40. I'd much rather have the chance at a top quality player at 9 and a good quality player as the 8th pick of the second. There will be some good (not great) talent in the beginning of the second. Two very late first rounders? Of course they want to move up!

That's like asking me if I want more horsepower or less horsepower? Duh!?

It's funny, now that the Patriots want Brockers, that makes me want Brockers.. it's kind of like, when I am out to dinner, and someone orders a steak, all of sudden that sounds really good and I want a steak..

Patriots look to be targetting Michael Brockers with Top 10 pick. Interesting. Just had a workout with him, and now want to trade up..



If everyone is after Brockers (Rams, Pats) why shouldn't we take such a player. Giving that pick away if such a player is there is a ticket to loserville and also proves my point that he IS the top DT in this class

Wait to see if Claiborne falls. If not, do it.

If the Rams want Brockers he's theirs, considering they pick ahead of us :P

Pats recent draft history isn't so great.

The Pats suck ass at actually drafting, them being interested enough in Brockers to trade makes me want him even less.

Take the deal. In my opinion, the talent curve droos off dramatically after the first five or six players. The next big dropoff I see is around 35.

They'll probably still be some decent options there.

Jerel Worthy, Devon Still, Janoris Jenkins, Zach Brown, Chandler Jones, Mark Barron, etc.


with this same logic, y would ne move up?

That's a really crap spot to be in. At 9 you've got some good talent not to mention the possibility one of the top 8 talents falls to you.

I definitely would not do it until draft day when it was our turn to pick, and I probably wouldn't even do it then.

This.

Its a reason they wanna move up just sit back and take a top ten talent.

Last time we traded with the Pats, we lost. Gave them a 3rd round pick, and (next years 1st) for a 2nd round pick. We got Armanti Edwards with that pick. It would be nice to trad with them again, and they draft a bust.

lol we could have the 32nd pick and there would still be a ton of people whining to trade down so we can load up on mid-round Dan Connor and Kealoha Pilares to keep the team firmly planted in the mediocre center of the NFL. This fanbase has never been able to handle first round picks very well.
