Trading Down?

Post by Fairweather » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:06 am

I'm seeing a lot of quality players at the top of the second round in all the mocks. Barring a Ridley, James or Nelson falling to #19, I would have no problem moving to the bottom of the first or top of the second round.

That is, as long as we don't trade back up for a player that would have likely been available if we had stood pat. :x

With 10 picks, I don't see trading down in the cards. I'm not seeing a move up in the 1st round. But, I see the potential of combining some and getting a couple 2nd round picks or 3rd rounders.

All 10 won't make the squad, so there's no reason for that.

We need quality player depth, not bantha fodder.

Actually I could easily see a trade down in the 1st if a team is willing to give up a second and could very well in this draft especially if all the prognosticators are correct and 5 or 6 QBs go in the top 15 or so. Do think Dallas would use that trade down pick and then jump back into the end of the 1st and grab another guy they get 5 years on with the 1st round contracts.
