Is there anyone worth moving up for?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think looking at the old point chart that we could package both our firsts and get up to #5 (and get a fourth rounder back in return). I have not followed the draft much yet. Heard Mike Detiller say ...

I have not followed the draft much yet. Heard Mike Detiller say the value in this draft was in the 2nd-4th rounds.


Anyone think there is someone worth moving up to get that will be a real impact player - especially on D?

hate to say it but we should only package if we can get a legit franchise type QB. I dont think there is one so I dont know.

I've been wondering that myself. I honestly can't say I've seen enough of some of the draft picks to really move up and get one of them. I think our current picks are at great spots where we can get guys that can help our team immediately.

In my opinion only Vic Beasley. We can get up to the 6th or 7th spot by just dealing our 2nd round pick. We can get to 5 by trading the 31st pick. With our propensity for trading up and now having lots of ammunition it's gonna happen... It's just a matter of for whom?

no; we don't need to package picks to move up. We have several holes we need to fill and can't afford to give away picks

We don't need NINE draft picks either....

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.

We have 5 in the first three rounds; WR, TE, ILB, OLB, CB, G... There's your 6 needs... Makes no sense to waste our second first round pick to move up with that many needs

You don't draft for need. Try to get the best players you can and if you have an abundance of resources as we do this year I don't see an issue with a move up.

After 7 or 8 it gets watered down quite a bit. I hope we trade up, two 1's for the Raiders 4. Get us a strong defender or WR. If we do that we still have options to move up again. Get the best we can out of the draft and put the scouts on notice to roll their sleeves up.

I disagree with as many holes as we have created for ourselves; you prioritize...

no way do you package 2 first round picks to move up for say Amari Cooper when you can get a starting guard and a starting LB instead...
