It's early and obviously a lot will change based on how players play this year and who we sign/let go of in free agency next year but just for fun what's your strategy for next year's draft. We will ignore comp picks for now. Here is a description of the options:
Option 1. Use All 11 Picks:
Even if we end up having to cut good player use all 11 picks and let them battle it out in camp and see how it all plays out at the end of the pre-season.
Option 2. Trade Our 1st, 2nd and 2 3rds for Early to Mid 1st Rounder
Get a potential superstar despite losing out on 3 other solid players. We are good enough we only need to fill a few holes. Go for a super star instead of quality depth and use rounds 4-7 for depth
Option 3. Use the extra 3rd, 5th, 6 and 7 to move up from late in rounds to early in rounds.
Example give up both 3rds to go from late in the round to early in the 3rd. Or use the extra 5th, etc to move up from late in the 4th to early in the 4th. Use the extra 6 plus our 6 to move from late to early in the 6th. Doesn't mean you have to do it in every round. Results in less picks/players but we get better quality depth while still keeping our 1st, 2nd and potentially 3rd rounders.
Similar to what we did this year. Use most of our picks but also move down picking up extra picks for next year. Means less players this year but provides picks for depth/starters in the future and possibly allows us to replace players with upcoming expiring contracts.
