    Justin Blackmon isn't top 5 pick material....... He is hardly an Elite prospect. Would have been drafted behind Green and Jones last year, no doubt. Will be a reliable #1 target in the Bigs, but above average at Best. He's no Dez Bryant, i'll say that. Classy character is part of the appeal. We just can't pay a premium for him when RARE talent is available in more pressing areas.

    I think you'll see him taken later than expected. Then there'll be a run on Wrs, involving the other 3, in the 15-25 area.
    It would be crazy to trade up for Blackmon when you could trade down and get Jeffrey,Floyd, or Wright and also perhaps a shot @ Fleener/Weeden/Foles etc.

    Players I'd give other high picks to trade up for:
    (the Qb's are obvious)
    Claiborne
    Richardson ( maybe to move up a few picks )
    That's it. Otherwise take BPA at #8
    We move Marshall for all the right reasons, miss out on ole' manning.. then when they dont overpay a backup qb : it's the last straw and jokers are protesting outside the stadium ! All brainwashed by the media. There's no pressure from within the walls of the office, it's all from the uneducated fanbase, and that's why a movement was made to inform the fans of what's going on, because all they had to go off of was the media.

    If Blackmon falls to us, then take him. I am against trading up for anyone. We can take Wright at 8/9 if we need a WR so badly.
    We need to take the BPA at 8/9 or trade down into the teens and get an extra pick in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    I am hoping that Trent Richardson is there at 8/9. The guy is an absolute beast. Power(Richardson) and elusiveness(Bush). Alternate him with Bush and we will have a dominant rushing attack for years to come. Sign Flynn. Get a FA OG and draft Fleener in the 2nd.
    Anything after that is gravy IMHO.

    It wouldn't surprise me if he actually went 2nd to the Rams to be honest. He would be a PERFECT fit for Bradford. We will have to see.

    Sorry, I think you have it dead backwards.

    I would trade up a spot, maybe two for Blackmon.
    I don't think Richardson is worthy of a top 10 pick. I just don't see it.
