I don't post a lot on here, but I noticed everybody seems to want to trade down in the draft to pick up whichever second round prospects they like. If Floyd or Star fall some in the draft, I think it would be advantageous of us to trade up and secure a dominant defensive tackle. I think we would have to jump ahead of the Titans at 10, so a good trade would be our pick at 14 plus our pick at 44 for the Jets pick at 9 and their 3rd round pick. With this scenario, I will add a mock draft just for giggles.

First round Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah or Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

Third round Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia or Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M

Fourth round Terron Armstead, OT/G, Arkansas Pine-Bluff or Brian Winters, OT/G, Kent State

Fifth round Vance McDonald, TE, Rice or Ryan Otten, TE, San Jose State

Sixth round Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida or Dustin Hopkins, K, Florida State

Don't mind the trade all that much, but you shouldn't really be drafting for need outside of perhaps the first round, definatly not rounds 3+, at least IMO.

Armstead is a second round prospect, and I doubt McDonald is there in the fifth either....

If we are going to trade up I would rather go for an OT. I dont really know anything about trade value but this seems to be heavily in our favor. Granted I am jaded from all the Hurney trades where we have to mortgage future picks and end up on the bad end.

Maybe some of those guys are not there, that's why I added a second option for each pick. I think the value is good for both teams, we move up 5 spots in the first for moving 30 or so spots from second to third. The Jets need to come out of this draft with a couple starters, seems legit. If for some reason Joeckel or Fisher are there, that would be awesome too. I just think trading up for an impact player would be a good way to go.

I just don't see anyone in this draft worth trading up for given our needs and the lack of picks we already have.

With as few picks as we have, a kicker?

Let me clarify, if we could move up a few spots and snag Star then I'm all for it, but I wouldn't mortgage the future with a probably "lame duck" coach to land a guy.

Might could see Jets willing to go down to 14 for our 2nd rounder, but no way I see them giving us their third in return.

Maybe the value is a little out of wack, but i'm sure they could work out something. I would just like to see us be aggressive to get one of the best rated players in this draft at a position of need. We could spend another low pick on a DT prospect, why not shoot for the best? And we need a kicker, so we draft one that could be here for a while in the 6th. Hanson that just retired from the Lions after over 20 yrs was a 2nd round pick!

id be pissed if we trade up. we can get 2 really good / probable starters with our first 2 picks.

we need to be trading down.

Actually the value is about right. Our 1st and 2nd = 1560 pts, their 1st and 3rd = 1575. If we had to toss in a 7th next year or something it'd about balance out. I wouldn't mind the trade and the draft picks you chose. I'd rather have one prospect of Star's potential and a guy like Swope, Bailey or Woods in the 3rd (or Rambo or a couple other directions we could go) than a couple of possible starters, but possibly not like we'd get at 14 and 44. I said it in another thread, it seems to me the guys likely available at 14 aren't much better than the guys that will be available at the top of the 2nd. It seems there's 4 or 5 elite prospects and then the talent pool levels out a lot more evenly than usual for the next 1.5-2.5 rounds.
