I wouldn't care if we never traded up ever again.

We have no business trading up in this draft.

If anything, we need to trade down.

Its tempting but unless we get amazing picks from trading Beason and Dlo, and decent comp picks, don't do it.

Even if the new GM feels he is the missing piece, then no future high picks please...

As much as I'd like to pick either Star or Joeckel, the fact remains we won our way out of contention for either, which is fine by me.

I'm too gun-shy of trading up anymore, thanks to Hurney Magic. No, stick with what we have... who we do draft may just end up surprising us all in the long run.

Jonathan Jenkins is just as good as Star and with some NFL conditioning will be just as fast. He plays lower and shows better hands to shake blockers. He has played in major conference against major comp all four years.

He's a guy I like a lot but I Dno if he's top15 worthy. Even though we need a NT, I like Sheldon Richarson more than the rest of the DTs after Star and Hankins. These MIZZOU guys are starting to impact the game.

I agree. Keep our picks. We know we are without our 3rd and 7th plus either our 5th or 6th we gave up for Murphy.

For about the 20th time, the only picks we don't have this year are our 3rd and whatever we have to give up for Murphy, probably 7th or 6th. Colin Jones was for a 2014 7th. We didn't trade any other picks away. We have every pick except our 3rd and either 7th or 6th (probably 7th if it's performance based).

Lotulelei looks to be a top five pick. To trade up to get him, we are looking at multiple picks including a first next year. Yet all in all, you shouldn't trade up unless you have more than seven draft picks in a draft. Teams like the Patriots can trade up because they have a billion picks every year. Yet if you are like us, who barely have 5 picks in the draft, it's a loser mentality to trade away more than you can spare.

It's too unrealistic to trade up for Star says the guy who makes the most unfeasible mock offseasons of all time

Hahaha that was your big list of players? You can pretty much do what you just did with any SEC school.

Not impressed by that list whatsoever.
