while it probably won't happen, it is interesting to have 4 2nd round picks.
hell, atlanta has 3........
we need to rebuild too, especially on defense and with the extra picks we could get at least 2 nice defenders not to mention a hell of a wide reciever and a hell of a running back to boot.......
atlanta needs ot, og, qb,s,and de. they are capable of getting the best one with their first and our 10th.............and new orleans is at the podium, we have a trade, atlanta is now on the clock......tick,tick,tick..........
I just wouldn't be comfortable trading our first round pick in which we have the chance of drafting a guy who can come in and possibly start right away. Plus, with our terrible history of second round draft picks, I'd be wary of trading away our chance to draft a guy with a top 10 draft grade.

Also, I completely agree with saintmissile, trading with an inter divisional rival doesn't make sense. Say they draft Matt Ryan with the #3, and then if we trade our #10, they can draft somebody like Clady. Right away, they've addressed their two biggest holes with a good quarterback and a good left tackle. I just don't think it makes sense, IMO.

Hell yes you do that trade. Atlanta never will. When you can get Colston and Evans on later picks compared to the first round guys we've had, why not take a chance on getting three d-studs in a deep class of cb's and Lb's.
