It is possible we could trade back 4-5 slots and gain an early 3rd rd pick. We could then take both our early 3rd round picks and trade them for a mid 2nd round pick 40-45. That would leave us with four 2nd round picks. If we trade back with the depth of this draft we would probably be better off drafting three 2nd rd picks and then having four 3rd rd picks including 2 early ones. That would give us 7 premium draft picks in a very deep draft plus our 4th and 5th rounders and the three 7th rd picks.
No offense, but you seem to propose the most unrealistic and one-sided trades out of everyone on here. At best, we could probably get 40 and 72 from the Vikings for 30 if a good QB was available, but that trade favors us so I think we would have to throw in our late 4th round pick. No one is going to give up an early third round pick to move up 4-5 spots. Last season, we gave up the 74th pick to move from 31 to 18. We could still end up with 4 2nd round picks if we traded pick 72 and 77 which may make sense if we are able to get Tuitt or Moncrief at 40 or in the mid-2nd round from trading our 3rd round picks.
Yes I am so unrealistic. Guess again. On average moving up in the 1st round 4-7 slots usually costs about a 3rd round pick and 8-10 slots a 2nd rd pick. The exception is moving up in to the top ten which can cost even more. Yes, last year we moved up 13 slots for a 3rd but that was because Baalke made the senile Jerry Jones his little biatch. Check the draft value charts, we got away with murder.
This year we own pick #77 in the 3rd round. We got it by trading back 6 slots in the 2nd round last year. Had we been trading back out of the 1st round we could have asked for more. Teams move up because there is a player they covet that they think will be gone when their pick comes up. If a team drafting 4 or 5 slots after us wants a player they think will be gone it is very possible that they would offer us a 3rd round pick to move up and get him. It depends on the position of the player and how deep that position is. If they are thinking short term they may offer us a 2nd next year instead of a 3rd this year hoping they will be drafting later next year anyway. It just depends on the team, who they want and how badly they want him.
