Probably not likely but right now the only need for this year might be RG. If we are comfortable with Kilgore, Boone and possibly Jason Brown battling it out than we really have no spot that needs to be filled this year. Means we could trade back from 30 and get an extra 3rd leaving us 2 2nds and 2 3rds to get some good quality depth players. Could also mean maybe we move up and give up a 1st + 2nd or 3rd or 1st, 2nd and 3rd and knockout RG or WR. We probably don't have room for 7 picks anyways. I'd love to get DeCastro but that's a lot for a RG. Could be for a WR like Blackmon or Floyd.
P.S. Those top 10 spots won't be as valuable when you have 5 teams looking to trade down. We could really just throw it out there and low ball teams or just call them all and see who is looking for the least. Helps when we can say well so and so wants this for x pick.. can you beat that. Example.. So we call up say Dolphins who want 2 1sts and a 2nd for 8 (just making it up). Then you call the Jaguars and say Dolphins want this... could you do 7 for less than that. Sure we can do 7 for 2 1sts. Then keep working it and see if we can grind one of the teams down to say a 1st and then a 2nd and 3rd or something like that. Bottom line if we got 5 teams looking to trade down we have leverage if we want to move up. They will all be competing against each other to find a partner and move down.

Exactly its like these peeps on here who want to accumulate 10 draft picks in 2012 in the later rounds...we'd have to cut half of them!
True but going up that high would cost 1sts 2nd and 3rds which are spots for good quality depth players. It's not like you can trade 5s, 6s and 7s to move up in round 1. Like I mentioned before McCloughan a few years back when we had a bunch of 6s/7s said that teams weren't interested in trading a bunch of 6/7s for one 4th or whatever. I agree though we don't necessarily need late pics though just not sure if you can get rid of them to get higher round picks without packaging them with high picks.
