It would be a fine move on McCoughlan's behalf.
You draft Williams, and Spiller and then use one of the 2nd rounders on a guard such as Vlad Duccasse. Yeah we're losing Gore but now we're laying the foundation down for a dominant line and the upscale, fast paced offense that it takes to win in today's NFL.
Now we have our line, we still have a 2nd round pick and 2 3rd round picks to address the defense, and all we have to find is a good complimentary back in the mold of a Pierre Thomas or Mike Bell. Doesn't happen to a Pro Bowler or a house hold name. You just find the right guy for our system.
That being said I doubt San Diego makes this trade. It's the nature of the game. San Diego knows that Gore might only have 1 or 2 seasons left in him. Not sure if they would value at the price.
