No, I actually like Jesse Williams and Floyd better. No chance at Floyd but I would love to move down a few spots and still get Williams.

Would not even consider trading up.
Not enougb draft picks already, and not worth the cost of.moving up.

My biggest dislike of moving up is that it costs you so much. You had better be sure the kid is who you think he is, and you had better be ready to win now, as it eats at your future. You better be sure he is an impact type player, cuz if you overreach, you have lost two steps instead of one. That said. If we get a top tenish talent. I would think the chances he busts would be rather small. So I don't buy into that worry over those exaggerated busts rates thingys. Get me the tenth best athlete and he starts day one.

I'd trade all of our picks to get the #1 pick and then draft him.








On second thought, no.

I really don't think there is a impact player in this draft, worthy enough to move up for. Not for us anyway.

This is why I want to take a WR at 14. One of these guys can be an impact player, and it will set us up to pull an Atlanta within the next 2 drafts after and move up for another WR to solidify the #1 and #2 for years to come. This allows Smitty to take a lesser role and/or retire, without leaving us scrambling.

Going defense in this manner, I just don't see it. Especially the way the league is heading, you need firepower at the 2 WR spots.

PFT's latest mock actually has Lotulelei falling to us. They have the Eagles taking Sheldon Richardson at #4.

Other picks of interest:

Luke Joeckel #1 to the Chiefs
Chance Warmack #8 to the Bills
Cordarrelle Patterson #9 to the Jets
Keenen Allen #11 to the Chargers
Eric Fisher #12 to the Dolphins
Tavon Austin #13 to the Bucs (good grief, I'd hate that :( ).

Kenny Vacarro, Jonathan Cooper and Lane Johnson are among those who fall past our pick in this model.

Should probably mention that Mike Florio's skill as a mock drafter is, shall we say, suspect.

Yea, I posted about his first mock a few weeks ago. It's ridiculously bad. Chargers pass on Fisher and Johnson for Keenan Allen?!!? Saints take a GUARD?!! I seriously think he was throwing darts at a board after the first pick. I'd love it if his dart-pick happened for us, but these two mocks of his were the worst I've seen this draft season.

If Star fell to us I'd be overjoyed. I'd take him, but seeing that we haven't worked him out, maybe we could use it as an opportunity to trade back.

LOL @ the Eagles if they too Richardson at #4. They have quite the knack for picking DT busts.

I'm not fundamentally opposed to trading up for generational type guys at their position, but they have to be as close to surefire prospects as can be. That being said, I don't believe that Star Lotulelei is Ndamukong Suh or Albert Haynesworth when they hit the NFL. If he falls to us, then maybe I take him because he's maybe the best DT there this year, but I wouldn't sacrifice next year's second (unless the prospects at DT coming out next year are not thought to be in Star's league).

We would take Johnson over Star.

An elite LT as athletic as Johnson is hard to come by.

A NT albeit a good one in Star you can find similar players.

Look no further than Keenan Allen at 11 with Fisher and Johnson on the board.

As for Star, should the 3 LTs be gone before 11, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Star ends up in San Diego

It's Florio.

He's not exactly an accomplished draftnik.

The best teams in the league are patient, and concern themselves with building the entirety of the roster. They don't get caught up in little things like worrying about a single rookie going to a division rival. I sincerely hope that the Panthers start to take the same tact.
