14 for an early 20's and a third if you can find a dance partner, otherwise just stay put.

What no one is talking about is exactly who is going to trade up to get that instant starter at 14. This isn't like last year where you had a number of talented quarterbacks or a Julio Jones who Atlanta is willing to trade up 21 spots to get. Unless a D linemen who is projected as a top 10 falls to us, no one is going to give us any thing for that pick. And if a top 10 D linemen falls to us at 14, I suspect we will be the one pulling the trigger and keeping them ourselves.

how likely is it? This should pretty much answer that. Carolina really has very few trades. Dont expect much.

Gettleman came from a team that BPA'd JPP at 15, even when they had Osi, Kiwinuka and Tuck. Unless he gets a great deal, he'll just stay put and pull the trigger imo.

And there are a lot of DEs in this draft.

Just off the top of my head, Seattle and Star/Dion Jordan/etc. They have enough darn draft picks to draft into the top-10 but I can totally see them moving up for one of the Carrell-types in the draft.

It would be nice to have some options if we wanted to trade down, still I doubt we could get much to make it worth our while. After all a team who is looking to move up would be just as interested in the 15th place versus the 14th. If we ask too much, they just move on to the next guy. Sooner or later someone takes the offer as they move closer to their natural position.

I think the consensus among most teams is that you'll get the same quality player between 10 and 30 this
year. That said, there's no reason for a team to trade up to 14 unless there is one player that they really
want.....don't see anyone worth giving up that 2nd.

we can always hope though.

About as likely as getting struck by lightening while being eaten by a great white shark while winning the lottery. Not very.

Well first we need someone willing to trade up lol. Who in this draft is worthy of that action?

Our best hope for a team trading us their picks for #14 is if Hurney gets hired somewhere and there's a longshot project he can trade up for.

I would love us to trade down (for good value obv). We have enough raw star power on this team to be a contender, we just need a handful of QUALITY starters at some positions and need much better depth all over.

Trading down could allow us to address dt, safety, wr and oline all in the first 3 rounds.

If three or four offensive linemen go in the top 10 which is likely, some of the defensive line prospects that are now projected there will fall to us and may not be the best fit for a 4-3. I could see some of the 3-4 teams behind us moving up to get in front of the Saints who are switching to that scheme.
