Besides, if you want Buffalo's 2nd rounder, why not trade them Alex Smith and our 2nd pick straight up.
That way we could keep our 1st and get Datone Jones, DE 6-4, 280, UCLA.
I am not convinced that Buffalo wants Alex Smith. At least, I have not heard any solid rumors, if a rumor can be considered sold, about that.
I do not think that Tavon Austin and A.J. Jenkins are all that similar.
I think that unfortunately we are not going to be able to get a 3-4 defensive end at the beginning of this draft.
Sheldon Richardson will long gone, and I seriously doubt that Sharrif Floyd or Datone Jones will be on the board when we pick.
I doubt that we want to pay the cost to move up to get one of them.
