Answer the same question about OT? OG? Those are our other two best options.

Suh might not have been the sole reason the Lions have improved, but he's certainly had a substantial impact. Gerald McCoy too, factoring in this year.

I usually wont mind trade ups,especially for a special player like Star. However we have to many holes that needs to be addressed, w/o a full compliment of picks and limited cap space to get quality FAs.

I especially don't want to give up a 1st because I think we will be picking in the mid-teens again next year and we can probably use that pick to get Smitty/Gross's heir.

No, I certainly wouldn't want next year's 1st to be a part of it. Like I said, most any trade that doesn't involve this year's 2nd or next year's 1st would be acceptable to me.

I'm thinking the Titans would take him, so we'd need to trade up ahead of them. Of course, the Titans could easily take Warmack making a trade up not necessary, but if Star's there at 9 I don't want them taking a chance. I want them trading up with NYJ to get him.

They also looking at corners like dee millner and Johnathan banks

As much as want Star, him falling to us is very minimal. Us trading up for him is out of the question especially when there are other DT/NT in this draft that are just as good or not that far off from his talents.

Its possible he could fall but highly doubtful. But a Couple of years ago Nick Fairley was going number one in January. He would need a poor combine or something else pop up to make him drop. He gets through Combine okay, then he will be top eight pick

not unless star absolutely blows the combine away and somehow fell to 9. other than a senario like that, i sure as all hell hope we dont trade down!!
