I don't think so but i wouldn't be suprised if it happened. Saints have a history of just given a whole draft for something.

Or maybe they should trade next year's picks for picks this year, since they'll all be the last picks of the rounds next year.

I've never liked moving up much. Remember Jonathan Sullivan, anyone?

I remember he had a real hunger for the game.

No, I don't think there's anyone worth moving up for. The difference between the top 5 or 6 players and the next 5 or 6 isn't worth what it would cost to move up.

Stay where we are and we get a 5 star player at one of several need positions.

Now that 31st pick, thats a totally different discussion.
And I was thinking that as well, Danno. Could we send a 3 with 31 to move and get two guys between 13 and 20? If we did package our 2 with 31, I wonder how far we could move, but I am thinking a 3 with 31 might move us up too. Thoughts?

Our 31st pick+2nd round pick would get us to around the 15th or 16th pick. Our 31st+One of the 3rd round picks we'd get up to around 20-21.

Yes, we will package picks to move up. Only question is when. My bet is round 2 or 3 where we can find a fringe 1st or 2nd round playmaker at WR or LB still hanging around.

I didn't say anything about pick #31.

I'm telling you we'll likely move up to grab a guy we have a higher grade on who's fallen into rounds 2 or 3.

For example, if Eli Harold makes it to #20-25, we should absolutely move picks to grab him before someone else does.

Don't forget that there are UDFAs. Which we happen to excel at.

So why NOT use our leverage this year to obtain 1-2 impact players?

Re: Is there anyone worth moving up for?

There's only two worth trading up for and that's Vic Beasley and Brandon Scherff...

Danny Shelton should be good, but there are other defensive linemen (i.e. Davis, Goldman) grading a shade under we could select with the 31st pick...

Now moving to the 4th (Raiders) or 5th pick (Redskins), should ensure Beasley, if the Titans or Jaguars don't surprise and select him...

I wouldn't be surprised to see us move up and consolidate picks as we've limited salary cap room presently...

Re: Is there anyone worth moving up for?

This is a year I am not excited about moving up for. After watching all the "EDGE" rushers and the tackles who should be guards, they all seem the same to me. There isn't a single player at a need position that stands out to me. With the lone exception being Trae Waynes.

Notice I am using 'me' as I am not some magnificent scout who sees all the little nuances of the game. All I know is I have watched football religiously for many years and this is the first year in a while that NO ONE stands out. stay put or move down, but please don't move up.
