With Miami at 13 now I am thinking the trade up bait will be a CB. CB is odds on favorite to be the position Miami will draft. Oakland needs CB also so a swap from 12 to 14 would be nice.

The saints would pick up a 4th and a 5th to drop down to 14. Good new the Raiders have multiple picks in the 5th. so the math lines up. what CB at 12? Eli Apple?

If WR was your pick you are still on top of the next group of teams that appear to be looking at WR in round 1.

Plus this year I think rounds 3 thru 5 does not have a huge drop in talent.

i call it a win win

This is absolutely brilliant and the right move...Every draft has an ebb, flow re: value and at No. 12 we're not getting full value with any DL not named Bosa or Buckner...

Are there that many DTs that are first round picks? Yes. Should we pick one at 12, in this draft? No.

If we could move back in the first, gain a top 75 pick, and select LaTech's Vernon Butler - that would be a Jedi move...


Moving back and still taking, say, a top five CB or maybe Jarran Reed, Kevin Dodd would also be stealthy, something I'd expect from Payton/Ireland...

Just really don't want us taking some overrated defender like Sheldon Rankins or Asean Robinson or a lightweight Ohio St LBer at No. 12...

Mickey Loomis, Is Dat You?!? Quit giving it away sweetie! Why not wrap a bow on it and ask for a ring?!?

Somebody please tell Ireland no bathroom breaks during the draft!!!

Let's call Detroit for a round 3 pick or Buffalo for a round 2 pick, if we're to swap...

Defensive Tackle or End is our only option. Shoring up the D Line makes our Secondary so much better.

Ellis wasn't a bust. Johnathon Sullivan was a bust.

People use the term "bust" way too often.

Reed or Robinson in my book. I'm just hoping that their play was not great because of the other player right next to them. I would play the safe hand and go with V. Butler.

I think Butler from La. Tech is going to be a great player. I would love to trade back a few, pick up a draft pick or two and steal him. Dodd may be drafted in the top 15 or he may fall into the 2nd. This draft is screwed up. So much talent on the defensive front 7. No one will know until pick 12 is turned in.

Alabama defensive players have a proven track record in the NFL. These guys simply produce at the next level.

I'd feel completely comfortable & confident with either of these guys being selected at #12.
