View Full Version : If we could trade down Cincy would be a good option to fill holes

If Richardson falls or someone Cincy likes we could trade #8,#42, and #72 for their #17,#21, and #53. They would come out 10pts in the trade but close enough to work. Then we have 2 1st and a 2nd to work with to fill our holes we have. If we sign Manning, Wayne, and either Tyvon Branch/Michael Griffin to finally have decent Safety play. Then with #17 we take Dontari Poe if Solai Leaves or Nick Perry if not to play opposite Wake and with #21 we take Martin or Glenn to play the Right Side whichever falls. And with #53 we take Allen, Charles, or Fleenor. Then with #103 we draft Burfict and hope he plays to hsi potential if not its just a 4th rounder. Through the trade and Free Agency we have filled all major holes on the team. Manning would have Bush , Marshall, wayne, and a TE along with protection from a pretty good line. The Def improves the secondary and also get a pass rush in place to help the secondary as well. Bottom line is we need a QB, Oline Help, Safety which we have needed as long as we have a QB , and a pass rush. There is no reason we cant compete for a Super Bowl if we can make a few moves and actually draft good players

I hope that Cincy would want to make that trade. I would take that any day of the week.

Cincy has already said they wont take a RB in round 1. They said the same thing last year before the draft that they would not take a QB in the 1st round and owned up to it. Based on thier track record Id say there is nearly no chance of Cincy trading for a RB let alone drafting a RB in round 1.

BUT I love the idea of adding a 2nd round pick. There is a lot of good talent in that round. This is a very good draft through the first 3 rounds. Lots or talent compared to past years.
