addai is moving up the charts too. he could easily be in the first round now. LSU north with faulk would be no surprise.

I'm going to take Oakland on this one. They have a need for a qb and we should still be able to get a player like Hawk, Davis (who I really like and would give Brees a Gates-like TE), or Brick

are you kidding me? Romeo has already cast his lot with Frye, and deservedly so, the kid can play. they're not looking for another franchise QB.....trust me, I will bet alot of money that Frye will be the starter for many, many years in Cleveland.

I said Oakland is the most likely team to trade with us, but I do think in the end we're going to be stuck at #2. As I said in another post, the only way a team trades up is to get Leinart. The Texans want to trade down for more picks. The only way to guarantee you will get Leinart is to trade up to #1. In the end, I see the a team trading up to #1 to take Leinart and the interest in our pick is gone.

They had a segment on the NFL network about this whole scenario. It would take the Jets to give us their second and third picks to swap at the #4 spot, so you can imagine what it would take anyone lower than the Jets pick to move up. Besides if they trade out any lower than #6 they better be getting a player in addition to everything else.

This is so not true. Teams would be banging down the doors to have an opportunity to pick Reggie Bush....probably MORESO. We still hold a lot of power in this draft....either way. They can't pick Leinart AND Bush with the first pick. So we can either pick Bush ourselves or trade to someone who's dying for a gamebreaker. Still an enviable position to be in, in my opinion.

At number 2 we are in great position regardless. Would I love to see the Jets scenerio. Yes Means more early value. No is in a great position. No trade then take the best player on the board.

At this point I don't want to debate that because we all have our own opinions on that, but in this draft the first 10 off the board should be legitimate players.
