With everyone on here wanting CJ Spiller (i personally believe we need better OL over fast RB) i hope the Pats make a trade with us to move up and take Spiller at #13. The Pats 1st round pick will be 21 or 22 if i am correct and they have multiple 2nd round picks. Based on value chart we would have to give additional pick (likely 3rd rounder) to ask for their highest 2nd rounder- 44. we can ask for either their middle or later 2nd round pick.
that would enable the following:
16/17th overall pick: Bryan Bulaga OT
21/22 overall pick: Mike Iupati OG
47th overall (49ers' 2nd rd): best defense player that falls through cracks
49th or 53ish (Pats' 2nd rd): Jordan Shipley, Javier Arenas, or Mardy Gilyard
I would trade down only IF you get a very good offer AND there is nobody available that you love and won’t be available at #16/17. If it’s your only chance to select an all-pro type player, then of course you don’t trade down, you pick him. But it's a very deep draft, so there will be good value in later picks, so getting an extra 2nd should mean another quality starter. (Trade #13 & our 4th for #22 & #43)
#16 = Earl Thomas - S - Texas (or best OT)
#22 = Best OT ie. Bulaga, Trent Williams, Anthony Davis, etc (or Earl Thomas?)
#43 = Jahvid Best – RB/KR/PR – Cal (or WR Mardy Gilyard, Golden Tate, etc) Love to get Best in early 2nd rd.
#48 = Sergio Kindle - OLB/DE – Texas (or Javier Arenas, Jason Pierre-Paul, Ricky Sapp, etc)
Get OG in FA.
