Trading up with next years picks.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; But then read the yawner thread where Rob threw his keys on Fisher's desk at St Louis because Fisher wanted to stay 43.... If it's Rob, I'll bet we see a bunch of 34 right from the get go....

Yeah, but that "news article" had no factual evidence to back it up, and it was probably as true as my claim that Ryan flew down to New Orleans on an unicorn after things went sideways with the Rams.

Re: Trading up with next years picks.

seeing as how we have no idea what might happen/who is going to be available with our current picks or what potential trade(s) will be offered i have to say lets just wait and see...
...but given the fact that this draft seems to be loaded with defensive talent, i wouldn't be terribly opposed to getting our 2nd rounder back.

Naturally you want to have as many - and as high - number of picks each and every year as possible.

Also, every single team wants to trade down in the draft gaining additional or higher picks while still being able pick the guy they've targeted.

And sometimes there's a guy just out of your reach in the draft who you think could have an immense impact on your team for years to come, and that's when you need to balance between all of these realities.


That being said, I would love for the Saints to make multiple trade downs during the upcoming draft and still get all the impact players they have targeted before the draft - even though that's impossible is practice. But I wouldn't be against them trading up either if they thought that there was a player out there who could be an impact player for years to come.

With the latter scenario, I think it would be more beneficial to try and bargain with next year's picks, since the team is now going through a fundamental transition on the defensive side and this draft seems to be full of potential pro bowlers at the positions of need the Saints have at the moment. They certainly can't afford to give up any picks in this year's draft, but they could always exchange picks for lesser ones if that would allow them to jump the few spots they'd need to get a certain player.

I have been impressed by Lane Johnson's. Combine numbers very good for a 300*lb guy. Even if we keep Bushrod RT needs an upgrade. Pick LT at 15 and trade into top of the 2nd rd for bpa defense . CB NT OLB

Re: Trading up with next years picks.

There's no one in the draft for whom trading up is worth the price. If we wouldn't do it, give how desperate we are for quality players, then why bother entertaining a less favorable exchange? We are in "no-man's land" of the draft - too expensive for the talent available, but no talent worth moving up for.

All 3 top tackles will be gone.
