What do u think?

Recommended Posts

If we Traded our 1st and 3rd pick to move up to Kansas city's 1st rnd 5 pick over all! We would secure either Dorsey or Ellis! We would still have a 3rd pick left!

Let me know what u guys think!

I would love to see us with either, but Dorsey would rock... I wonder if Jones scoring system says about the value of those picks?

I would be ok with it. I almost think I would wait until after the draft starts to make the trade, I would say after the first 4 picks we're pretty much going to know if either Dorsey or Ellis is going to be there at 9.

Why don't we throw Carson or TJ in on the deal?? It would take a 2nd (#46), not a 3rd(#77), pick

The way to trade for this draft is DOWN !!!! Pick #77 this year, used wisely, is equivalent to pick #35 last year (Ryan Khalil vs. Mike Pollak).

We need too much help to squander draft picks. Who says Ellis / Dorsey will be gone? - there's probably a 60% chance one of them slides to #9. Additionally, there's some great DT's in later rounds (Moore, Laws, Pressly, Rubin)

What pick did we trade for Fitzpatrick??

6 I believe. Don't know if it was conditional or not.

As for trading up, I'm all for it. And the Bengals are apparently willing to part with some picks, judging by their pursuits of Rogers and Ellis. I was mulling one scenario this morning:

1. Miami - C. Long: Just plugging in the conventional wisdom.

2. St. Louis - J. Long: could go d-line & are said to covet Gholsten, but quality d-linemen will be available at the top of round 2.

3. Atlanta - D. McFadden: Blank needs to reinflate the franchise and a lineman won't get the fans' juices flowing.

4. Oakland - S. Ellis: Coaching staff knows him, perfect replacement for Sapp.

5. (trade) New England - V Gholsten: Pats/Jets feud gets nastier when Bill jumps up to rob Mangenius. KC targets Dorsey at 7.

6. (trade) Cincinnati - G. Dorsey: Mike Brown pulls the trigger, leapfrogs KC, grabs Dorsey. KC "settles" for an OT (probably Clady) at 7, Baltimore takes M. Ryan at 8 and the Jets take Stewart or Mendenhall at 9. Trade costs the Bengals their 3 and 5 picks.

With the bold moves the front office has pulled during the FA market, I wouldn't be surprised in the least that they move up in the draft to get who they want. They have picks to spare at this point. It would be the right thing to do! :bengal:

As much as I would love to see more picks this year, we also already have a bunch of them and wouldn't blame the front office ONE BIT is they were trying to be proactive by trading UP to get their targeted guy.

WHODEY !!!

Our 7th round pick is gone - but we should have at least a couple at the end of the round
