You have us trading....UP????
No, with the 1st round picks he has us taking Berry and Bulaga.
First of all if we beat Lions and Rams like we're supposed to be we'll be 8-8 at the worst. With the suckfest of teams this year that will likely be a pick close to 20. Bulaga could very well be a top 15 player so I'll be surprised to see him there for that 2nd pick.
And while I like Berry and think he'll be a great safety I'd rather hold onto our 3rd round pick which is no throw away pick and keep Carolina's pick and not pay a safety that much money and address bigger needs.
If Berry somehow falls to us, great...but trading up for him would be a bad move.
Besides I highly doubt it would just take a 3rd rounder to move up. Anyone can throw out trades but when it's all said and done trading up in the top 10 takes big moves.
This team still has a lot of holes. I'd rather try Reggie Smith at safety or see if we can move Clements there.
I wouldn't argue that this team is ready for the Super Bowl just yet, but with a stud young safety, a probowl caliber left gaurd, a good young RT (if not Bulaga then Anthony Davis or Trent Williams), a good return man, and an additional pass rusher - how many holes are left?
