I'd trade with them, but the price would be steeper than any other team (besides the bucs and saints).

It's a numbers game. If we are improved at least as much as ATL is it is a net benefit. And even if ATL gets more out of it than we do it's a possibility given that we only play them 2x/yr.

If you ever trade with the enemy, you make them beg and you shaft them.

This. If you trade within the division, you better make damn sure that you "win" the trade on paper. It would be a crazy ballsy move by Gettleman to make in his first draft.

The Falcons showed that they're not shy to pay a big price to move up in the draft for a prospect that they covet when they traded up to take Julio Jones. I think that will work against them if they start calling around to try to trade up this year.

In the Beason trade with the jets we went from 14 back to 24 IIRC and picked up a 2nd. Dropping to 30, I want a 2nd and a 3rd in the least

There is no room for pessimism on this board.

Until we realize that we are still a 7-9 team next year :(

Aside from 3 OL and Jordan and Miliner... no one is really a solid starter.

What? This draft is full of potential starters even well into the third round.

Im not so much saying that there isn't potential starters [bc theres potential in the undrafteds too], i'm just saying the top 10 prospects in this draft cant hold a candle, as far as pure talent is concernced, to any other draft in recent memory.

On paper in terms of pre-draft hype, this is true. But, you can never judge a draft class until several years down the road.

I think this draft is actually loaded with talent, it's just a little light in terms of elite prospects at the high profile positions, primarily QB. It's the QBs that generally really get the buzz started and this is being called one of the weakest QB classes in recent memory.

what i call elite prospects, you are calling solid starters.

yes, as far as hyped players that everyone is yammering about there's just not a lot. it's weak, esp. in the QB dept.

what i'm referring to are guys who are solid, not spectacular. guys that can be relied on. guys without a lot of flash, but still a lot of substance. kind of the meat and potatoes of the roster, you might say. i think there's a lot of guys in this draft that will go the first couple rounds who will be legit starters. i'm not expecting much in the way of all-pro, but i am expecting just good and reliable players.

I understand all of this, i am trying to point out that there is no ELITE prospective player in this years draft except maybe 5
