Worst kept secret - we're moving up in draft

No way I see us drafting 9 picks this year.

Two scenarios I see:

1) We package our 1st rounders to move up in the 5-6th pick range for someone, then try to get another 2nd rounder through trading other lower round picks

2) We stay with our 1st rounder and trade up on Seattle's 1st rounder to get closer to the middle of the round

I'm thinking the same thing. With these many picks,there's so many options.

I think we use the new 3rd and our third and 4th to get a late first and keep all of the first just where they are.

I don't think we have a fourth and I don't think that will be enough for a first rounder anyway.

Re: Worst kept secret - we're moving up in draft

I wonder if they see this draft as a top heavy draft and will try to move up into the top two rounds as much as they can,or do they see a lot of talent in the mid rounds?

I'd rather we get as many good players as we can. Look what happened with Cooks last year. Doing great and then the only pick we had that contributed was gone. We need depth. Hopefully we atke 2 1st rounders and work it from there.

Word is that coach has told these traded players that we're going all in on defense.
