This is where trading down into the middle or late in the 1st round would be the best bet IMO. For one, no way is Jake Locker worth a Top 10 pick, and what's with Nick Foles in the 1st round again??
That's if you feel that you MUST draft a QB in the first round. I agree a QB is a must area but so is CB and DE/pass rusher.
There are only so many impact players in any draft, usually that number is between 8 and 12. Therefore, it would make little sense for a team with three high need areas to trade out of a chance to fill one of the other two high need areas to get a QB later in the round who is not as likely to be an impact player as a CB or DE.
OK after looking at the Mock Draft again, I changed my mind, I'd stay where we are and take either J. Blackmon or AJ Green. I'm just not that high on Amukamara as some are on here, or CB for that matter unless his name is Patrick Peterson.
And no, Locker is not worth a top 10 pick.
There are only so many stud pass rushers and they have a greater overall influence on the game, IMO.
I feel with a new offense, QB and HC on the horizon it would be a much wiser decision to complement the offense. And right now, Crabtree isn't scaring anyone and our #2 has been invisible and doesn't seem to take any pressure off Crabtree. Besides no pass-rushers jump out at me, besides Von Miller, but he seems like a late 1st round pick IMO.
