Clearly, but use your best judgement based on what players are going to be there. I think many would pass on this if Claiborne was there. But I think in any other situation I'd trade down, that's just me though.

If we are getting the Patriots #27 and #31, then No, I would pass on the trade.
If we are getting the Browns two 1st's then I would be all over it.
It completely depends on the picks we trade for..

No, I'm not that stupid.

We'd lose our 1st (9) and our 2nd
We'd gain 2 lower firsts (e.g. 17 & 21) and a third.

The reason I pose this question is because I feel like there's a lot more value in 2 mid/lower first rounders vs who is going to be available at 9. But if you feel like losing a 2nd is too much just to pick up two first rounders than I would understand. This poll isn't meant to see if you think it's fair or not, because this is most certainly a realistic trade. It's more to judge the value of the trade and how comfortable you'd be selecting at these spots considering where players should fall.

Thanks for the clarification.

I wouldn't do this because our high second rounder is almost as good as a first. there is going to be very little drop off in talent between say picks 25-40.

only way i would do this is if we got this deal from the bengals for #17 and #21. could pick jenkins/kirkpatrick and one of high ceiling DTs.
