This could be the wildest draft Day in years.



Adam Schefter@AdamSchefter23 Apr
Teams that have made calls about moving back in draft include PHIL, DET, CLEV, BUFF, MIA. Doing what they should.



Add in the Panthers rumors as well, fasten your seat belts, should be fun.

Thursday will be a serious game of hold'em/fold'em.

Given so many team interested in moving back....the good news is that the price for moving up will likely be less than is a typical year.

The whole supply and demand thing.

If Star starts falling...I wouldn't hate moving up for him. Not a big jump, and I'd like to keep our 2nd this year, but I think it could be worth it.

Please no. I'm tired of living through the Hurney years of missing picks.

While I agree with you, it's a tad different jumping up to get a guy like Star as opposed to a guy in the 2nd or 3rd round. I'm not a fan of trading up with so few picks, but I wouldn't hate it.

I doubt the Falcons regret trading up for Julio Jones. This situation is a lot more similar to that, as opposed to trading up for Everette Brown or Armanti Edwards.

I agree. If he starts falling a bit teams are going to do all they can to move up to get him including the 49ers who are going to be willing to unload their picks to get him if I had to guess. If he gets within 4-5 picks of us I wouldn't be opposed of doing what needs to be done to get him on this roster. I'd rather pay a little extra for a great player at a huge position of need than allow the Niners or Falcons to get a great player who can be their missing piece to a Super Bowl run.

I actually think 14 is a really good spot for us. I'd rather stay put unless we get a really ridiculous offer and it seems like Gettleman feels the same way.

the Panthers have some very good leverage at 14 so i think they might be able to move up or down about 3-4 spots AND gain an extra pick. which they desperately need. stockpile some talent for a change.

Star's not falling just because of his heart condition, he's gotten the peg of not being a football guy and not loving the game. Attitude, work ethic...so forth.

Add in bad technique, short arms and a lack of pass rush moves with the heart condition and his love of football being question and he could take a huge plunge down the draft. Even though the heart condition checked out, he was automatically removed from a ton of teams draft boards just because of the question mark.

I wouldn't trade up for him with those question marks on him.



As for trading up - Not really anyone worth trading up for and it would take a future first round or a second round this year to manage the move and it isn't worth it.


As for moving back - Only if you can get a bucket load of picks, this is really a top 15 draft, then everyone else is bunched together as middle first - second round guys.

We won't move down. Gettleman will stay at 14 and take the best player available.

How is trading down different from trading up?

Here's a fantasy scenario to fap to tonight:

Move down with the 49er's to pick up the 31st and 34th plus a lower pick. Then the QB's start to bunch up, and a QB hungry team pulls the trigger on giving up a 1st next year or a 3rd this year with their lower 2nd to grab the signal caller they have to have with the 31st or 34th pick.

Fun to think about at least.
