With the amount of talent is this years draft class at receiver, running back, quarterback and cornerback it would seem if the team can find a willing trade partner the best serinao would be to trade down into the the second round to see if you could not land a teams to second round picks for the 20th spot.

If either the Dolphins or the Falcons are willing to part iwth there two second rounders for a prospect that falls that they covet.

just for the sake of looking and for fun the Bucs would have 3 second rounders a 3 and a 4th rounder which could look like this
2. Trevor Laws DT
2. Josh Johnson QB
2. Chris Johnson RB
3. Donnie Avery WR
4. Trae Williams CB
5. John Sullivan C

I agree yuc, I think Johnson has slowly moved up to a late round 2 ... even more of a reason to not trade that pick away for a veteran WR.

Laws would address the need at UT whit his size and motor, Josh gives the team a future at QB, Chris Johnson adds the home run threat to the running game, passing game and return game. Avery would give the team another vertical threat in the passing game and also in the return game. Williams would have the chance to learn also gives the team more speed on defense, Sullivan give the team depth at center

I like it alot and keeps us from reaching in the first round for one of our need positions, since those guys will probably all be 2nd round type players.

I've said before and will say again I'm a huge fan of trading with either team for 2 2nds.  Theres not anyone that really jumps out at me at #20  and alot that jump out from #35-#50
However I'd prefer Eddie Royal over Avery. Royal ran a 4.39 (fast enough) but what really impresses me is his top ranked bench press for WR at 24 reps.
I know the bench doesn't mean a whole lot for a WR but proves to me how tough he is and how well he's put together.  He may be able to go across the middle more then Avery or any other WR thats the same size.

Strength also helps WRs get off the line as well Robb22, something that is lacking in Avery's game.

I'm in favor of trading down under the right circumstances but don't at all like what you've done with the picks, especially with the lack of big bodied players. Way too much finesse.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Did anybody see Josh Johnson throw yesterday? He made Bruce Gradkowski look like Dan Marino.

Idk, maybe it was just me. Personally I don't get all the love for this guy.
