My Draft Day scenario

OK, here's where I'm at. While Suh is my favorite player in this draft, and I think Okung would be the single player to benefit us the most, I think trading down is our best option. So I used my enormous brain to add up the numbers of a draft day trade that seems to make sense - to me at least. I say we trade with Seattle, giving them our 1st rounder for their SECOND first rounder, plus their 2nd, 4th and 5th. That would be the *4th overall pick* for pick #'s *14, 40, 101, and 136.* I know it seems like a lot, but the numbers actually work out more in Seattle's favor on the value chart. (Though as small as the margin is, it pretty much makes it a wash) Taking into account the reality of pushing trades through, maybe we have to either throw in our 7th, or our 5th in an essential swap.

OK, if you've followed me so far, here's where I'd go with the picks.

#14 - Trent Williams

#37 - Roger Saffold

#40 - I would like to see us trade back here to pick up a 3rd rounder, and either something later, or something next year. If not, then use this next pick on either:

a runningback (Jahvid Best or Jon Dwyer?),

nose tackle (Cam Thomas)

or, most likely, linebacker (Daryl Washington or Spikes?)


Of course we could go all kinds of various ways with these picks, like Colt McKoy in the higher second or, if we got lucky, Brandon Graham. Then maybe Toby Gerhart with our 100, then, if we didn't get McKoy, I've seen some mocks have Lefevour last until the 4th, where we would have the 100 and 101st picks.


I realize I'm all over the place with this. Just cut me a break - everytime I look at a different mock I see another guy I wanna pick up. The main thing is to get the discussion going on what we could do if we were able to parlay the #4 pick into a plethora of promising rookie talent.
