trade idea that mite b great

What if we traded with philly for lito and dropped to there spot. Picked up balmer which is just an ok pick to me but sounds like we like him, then in round 2 got kenny phillips safety from miami or maybe connors if he falls. round 3 best available TE or RB. we would get balmer for cheaper plus add 2 starting D players with balmer in a rotaion.

Re: trade idea that mite b great

not at 19. Sorry I still see him as a second rounder. Stick with some of these names instead:
Mike Jenkins
Branden Albert
DeSean Jackson
Chris Williams
Dan Connor
These names make me feel much better than the The In-Balmer. The walking dead version Sullivan.

Re: trade idea that mite b great

no offense, but Balmer and Philips are on my "no thank you list", if we do that I would rather Mayo in the first and Tracy porter-cb-in the second.

If we could somehow pull off lito and mayo in the first id be thrilled. honestly, i think im warming up to the idea of trading the #10 for lito and the #19 more and more each day. if we can come away with lito and another defensive starter out of our first rounder it would be a blessing.

what dont u like about phillips? i hear a lot of good things on him and we could use a safety. i agree with mayo. offinse 2 me is just if the right rb falls 2 a good spot only because duece is on his last leg and bush cant run inside.

5. Kansas City Chiefs -- Branden Albert, OT/G, Virginia
Record: 4-12 | Needs: OT, CB, DT, G, C, WR, QB
Scenario 1: If Jake Long somehow falls this far, he's the pick.
Scenario 2: Trade back and acquire more picks to better address a slew of needs.
Scenario 3: As much as it pains me to admit it, Mel Kiper's info on this pick seems to be accurate. It feels like a reach to me, but the Chiefs evidently think enough of Albert to take him if they are stuck here.
Scenario 4: The Chiefs could also consider Ryan, Dorsey or Ellis.

He has flown up the board from the top of the second to the top of the first. He is good but at 5? KC will be reaching big time. Will he be there at 19? I doubt it. He probably come off the board before 15 but not at 5.
Then again with the salaries OG are getting now it is not out of the possibility. I am thinking NE is the first team to really consider him. At 10 I could live with the pick. Have Andy start learning to be a center, ASAP

Re: trade idea that mite b great

yea i couldnt imagine him going at 5 but if he is KCs guy and they cant find anyone to trade down with... i think they will actually find someone.. i can see Denver wanting to move up and snag Ellis.. their D line has been horrible the past couple years and they need something... i could see them definetly trying to jump everyone..

His last name isnt Taylor or Reed, LOL and looking at his stats, it looks like he regressed this year.
