I would get rid of Goodwin and I think center is a need. No way would i extend him. I do like Hankins but not sure I would give up that much for him. All these DT's are toss ups to me at this point. Matt Moore would be a solid back up but he's not competition. I like the Bowe signing but like others said with the tight cap I don't see it happening.
The only DT I'd be wanting to trade up that much for is Lotulelei, the rest don't have very much separation and you're as likely to find a good DT in the 2nd round as you are in the 1st.
I've been thinking if there was a way to draft Lotulelei. Pricey but how about this? trade with KC alex smith, our 1rst, (2) thirds, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th. This would assume we recieved a comp 3rd rounder and a later comp pick. Wouldnt this still leave us with a 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, (2) 7th ? If Lotulelei is the best player in this draft class and get 8 or 9 sacks a year from the NT position im for it!
