The '4 Picks in Top 50' Strategy

The '4 Picks in Top 50' Strategy

If we miss on an OT at 13 and 17, and we see one there at 25 or so, we can trade next year's #1 and this year's #3 to jump up and grab.

We would come away from Day 1 with 4 potential starters as rookies (!)

We'd miss a #1 next year, but with the 4 starters from 2010, we wouldn't miss it that much.
Or we can wait till the 2nd round and draft one
We should NOT trade next years first. Not for anything less than Payton Manning, Drew Brees, or some other top 5 QB.

Next year will probably be the first year with a rookie salary cap. That means those 1st round picks will be twice as valuable because you can get top talent without breaking the bank. The last thing we want to do is miss out on that.
Homie I got to applaud your effort. I've never seen a poster be able to start a thread with the same topic 5 different times but all with different thread titles.

Nick Bradley! I agree with the two other posters, wait till the second round to get our guy. I hate giving up first round picks no matter where we might be drafting.

Building on an idea:

- One topic was about trading up from the 2nd round to the first round

- THIS topic is about trading next year's #1

How are those the same???

NOT The same -- one is trading away next year's #1, the other one isn't.

All the good JR's came out this yr.,so the likelihood that next yr."s draft will be considerably weaker are pretty high. The odds are fairly good that there could be a lock out.As far as saving money because of a possible salary cap,it's not my money. If the FO is worried about money they should put a killer team in a sweet new stadium, and they will be swimming in money.

This. It may be reasonable and logical to do it but I hate going into a draft without a first.

JJ Stokes I still haven't forgiven you!!!!

Charlie Casserly called this the best draft in 27 years (since '83) -- due to the fear of a lockout, most juniors came out this year and there may not even be a draft next year.

In 2011, the only decent draft pick is going to be Jake Locker.
