It's a crap shoot, and one man isn't going to do it alone.

Trade down. Increase the odds is what I say.

Jalen Ramsey, S/CB, Florida State, 6005, 209 4.41

Maybe just maybe and a lot of if ands or buts
Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame 6055 315 5.17
Ezekiel Elliott RB OSU 5115 225 4.47

In a perfect world both would still be on the board
Shaq Lawson DE Clemson 6026 270 4.70
Jarran Reed, DT/DE, Alabama 6034 307 5.21

If none are on the board reach?

Josh Doctson WR TCU 6020 202 4.50
Laquon Treadwell Ole Miss WR 6020 221 4.64

Trade away is always an option. bottom half of one is not that much different than our next pick in round two

Re: My wish list at 12

You guys seem to think you can just trade down if you want to. It's damn near impossible unless you're picking in the top 5.

I don't know, Chris, Arizona picked up a third round pick when they found a trade partner in the Saints...

That was Cardinal's pick 20 for the Saints' pick 27 and a third round pick in the 2014 draft...

Re: My wish list at 12

Whoever it is we pick at twelve, I'd hope that...

1) He's a three down player (not a two down run stuffer)...

2) He's not a running back...

3) He's with the team, effectively, for at least nine years...

4) He's an immediate, effective starter...

5) He's not a Pac/West type player that is restricted from OTA's and Minicamps and can acclimate right away...

6) He's not a medical redshirt type and has no medical baggage to limit his start to professional football...

7) And most importantly, He's a football player that loves to play the game and leads by that example...

I don't think Rankins fits our defense because Payton wants a big run stuffer.

Right, but that's because we're the dopes always wanting to trade up. Not a lot of other teams do that.
