Move Up, Stay or Move Down In The First Round?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Depends on who is there at 13. If all of our top targets are gone we should look to trade back a few spots and pick up some extra selections. I think we should stay put at 31 because there ...

I think we should stay put at 31 because there will be a lot of value still there at that pick. Should be a ton of options be it ILB or WR.

Move up from 13 to 4 (Oakland) to get Vic Beasley...

Stay put at 31 for DL Carl Davis or ILB Stephone Anthony...

I only said to move back, only if someone gave us their 2nd and we swap our 1st. So we would still have a 1st, and another pick

Trade back with pick #13 into the early to mid 20's for a mid 2nd or early 3rd. Stay put at #31. We could own this draft.

After #1, there is no real consensus, and now there's talk of Chicago trading down. With the calculated moves SP has made this off-season I have to believe he has 2-3 guys in mind.
I don't we are looking at BPA this year.

Bold move JP. I wonder if the Saints front office brass have the same mindset?

Endless possibilities .

Re: Move Up, Stay or Move Down In The First Round?

I think we should sit tight at 13. I don't think anything would be worth moving up for at this point this year for anything other than a QB. I dont think either QB that are that highly rated this year are a sure thing enough to risk moving up for. I would almost rather stockpile some picks for next year so we can be in the position to make a move for a QB if there is an Andrew Luck or someone out there.

If I had to move up I would still stay pat at 13 and try and move up our later first. I really don't know enough about this current draft class to make much of an educated decision though.

This is what I have been thinking. Only way we move up is to get a QB but I don't think either are legit definite franchise QBs. If there was a legit franchise QB in this draft I would say go for it. This draft is deep at WR I think moving up to get a WR again would be a dumb idea.

At 13 you're guaranteed a top 2 talent at a position of need.

Stay put.

At 31 you have more options. Players start to fall, teams start to reach. I like us to move up here or grab Stephone Anthony!!
