I realize many of you hate the trade down scenarios, but here is my reasoning.
Looks like there is no consensus on can’t-miss prospects at 14. I think unless Star or one of 3 OT’s fall to us at 14, a trade down could be the best scenario IF we can find a partner. Minnesota could be willing to move up to get one of the WRs (assuming they’re there). If they would trade #23 & #52 for 14, it would help. Then, what if SF needs a final piece (S or DT?) and offers #31 & #34 for #23; QB-seeking team?; or Denver falls in love with one player to put them over the top?
Farfetched I know but would you do that? It (SF trade)would give us #31, 34, 44, & 52- 4 of the top fifty in a draft considered deep but not top-heavy. That would allow us to fill holes at DT, CB, OG, and S or WR. We would possibly get 4 inexpensive starters which help salary cap problems for 2014 when Cam and Hardy come due.

Some combination of 4:
CB-Banks, Slay, Wilson
DT- Hankins, Jenkins, (Bama DT?)
WR- Hopkins, (Austin if he falls), Allen, Hunter, Patton
OL- Warford, Watson,
S- Elam, Reid, Cyprien

Most of this post is at least punctuated and capitalized correctly. Gotta give him that.

Most people here would love such a scenario. It's just not even in the realm of realistic. If we could somehow swing Hankins, Hunter/Hopkins, Warford AND Rambo (or Elam, but Rambo is much preferred) it'd be an absolute wet dream. It's just not gonna happen and a lotta folks around here don't like it when people dream.

If Dion Jordan happened to be there when we pick, we would get an opportunity to trade down. Just in time to turn the knife on NO.

Well, it doesn't have to be Jordan, Mingo or Ansah would work. Point is, that with NO going to a 3-4, they will HAVE to get the key component for that scheme which is an OLB. Many teams behind them need the same cog.

My one and only mock had Pittsburgh moving in front of them since all of the Steelers LB's are old and some being cut.

I think if any of the three, Jordan, Mingo, or Ansah are on the board, we will have an opportunity to move down.

I think it's possible but I don't think we will get more than a low Second or high third depending on who we trade with

I like the thought of trading down, but if there is no consensus cant miss prospect at 14 why would anyone (let alone 2 teams) want to trade up? Wouldn't mind the players though. Just dont see it happening

There is always a case for trading down. I disagree with the notion that there arent any cant miss prospects though. Id say there are a couple that could be there when we pick. Warmack and Werner specifically.

The only thing about trading down that is tricky, is that you better make sure you are picking great players in lower rounds.

I have seen the Steelers(Wallace,Brown,Sanders) do this, but I have never seen the Panthers do this multiple times.

Can't wait to see what Gettleman has up his sleeve. lol

Heh I was just saying it'd be awesome to be able to trade down AND screw NO in the process.

No problem, I understood what you meant. Just went a little further with who else might precipitate a trade. I think NO having us in front of them should give them nightmares.

Well I think Jordan and Ansah will be gone before our pick but Mingo has a real shot at being there to be out trade bait. The Jets are the biggest threat of taking him I think, but a lot of people are projecting them to take a WR. It sure would be nice to have the option to trade down if Star isn't available.
