Or a guy like Julio Jones or Justin Blackmon, depending on the 40 times they run. Heck we could probably land Locker toward the 18-20 area if we really wanted to take a QB. We already have 10 picks, but the 3 extra ones are 4th round and beyond. If we could get to 12-13 picks, it could really help us restock the talent on the roster and fill some needs. We could take a flyer on a QB or 2, we could add a speed WR, a potential NT, etc. Thoughs?
I agree with BackOnTop, if Prince is there, he would drastically help out. With that said, If were guaranteed to be able to draft Von Miller, or Ayers and we could get an extra 2nd round pick, I'd be all for trading back because each of those pass rush specialist will help our secondary DRASTICALLY.
Von Miller plays OLB in a 3-4 defense already so the comparisons to Manny Lawson need to stop before they even get started. He is a MONSTER pass rusher but it will be taking a chance of trading back to get him. Like I said, if there was a way to GUARANTEE trading back for an extra 2nd and still landing Von, I'd be all for it.
That way we could easily package one of our 2nd's and one of our 4th's to move up into the 1st round and grab either the best WR that falls (Blackmon) or QB that falls and then with our early original 2nd round pick, draft the opposite of what we drafted when we moved into the 1st round, if that is not too confusing
So after all those words, I guess I'm trying to say "it all depends"
