If Watkins and Evans are off the Board at #7. We need to Trade back for picks to increase the overall depth and talent on the team. And continue to build what L&L did through Free Agency. I think you are going to see we will end up with a good SLOT group blend of RB’s and WR’s Demps, Rainey and Murphy that are currently on the roster. Franchise QB’s are needed. But at the same time most of these guys are either Young or have Question marks.I would attempt to do the following.Trade 7 to Tennessee for 11,42,151Trade 11 to Dallas for 16,78,119Trade Glennon to Chicago for 3rd#82 & Conditional 5/6 in 2015Our Picks:16,38,42,69,78,82,119,143,151,185,221Draft: 16- CJ Mosley ILBDeal Chicago's #82,151 + 5/6 Conditional 2015 pick to Seattle for #32 - They are looking for CAP relief and wouldn't mind trading out of the 1st round.32- Donte Moncrief WR38- Jordan Matthews WR42- AJ McCarron QB69- Rashard Reynolds CB78- Gabe Jackson OG119- DaQuan Jones DT143- Marcus Smith DE185- Reggie Jordan TE221- Justin Britt OTNext Year Trade up for Mariota/Hundley and maybe bring in Gilbert/Murray as an UDFA after the draft.
Trade back is a possibility but you have way too many picks going on with not enough roster space. If we trade for picks we are gonna use those picks to trade up for players we want aka what Dom did to get Martin and David
Well, the pick I hate the most is the first one. Mosley is the 2nd most overrated player in the 1st round. If Lovie is set on “finding his Urlacher”(which I don’t buy that he is), then I hope he takes Ryan Shazier. Dude is gonna be a stud and will be the best LB in the draft. If we had these picks, my preference would be:#16 - Shazier#32 - DE - Dee Ford or Lawrence#38 - I like the Matthews pick, so Matthews.#42 - Moncrief will be available here I feel. If not, then take Benjamin or Landry here.#69 - If we are taking a CB in the 3rd, then I'd take Stanley Jean-Baptiste#78 - Gabe Jackson will be long gone, I feel. Trai Turner should be available and would be good value here.The rest are fine since 4th-7th rounders are typically random shots trying to hit on players.
What did they say about Kuechly or Burfict? That they were overrated? Who cares? Neither one of them are Mosley. If Mosley had went to a different school, he would still be available. We saw two incredibly overrated prospects get drafted in the mid-first simply because of the logo they sported on the side of their helmets. These two will be two more 1st rd Bama defensive disappointments…a list that grows each offseason. Shazier was the better prospect…and it’s why he was picked before Mosley.
