    You may well be right. I would just like to see a star come out of the first round with a few average to good players. We are LONG OVERDUE.

    On trading down, you're going to loose the guy you wanted to trade down for 90% of the time. So, if you're trading down 5 spots, there better be 4 guys you will be happy with, if it's 10 spots there better be 8 or you are going to have buyer's remorse on the guy you could have had.

    With that in mind, do those wanting to trade down see enough players you would be happy with if it was not a RT?
    I think this is a very strong point, but I also think there's something to be said for not panicking because you might not get the guy you want. I like the idea of taking the risk of missing out on your guy "if" there's a decent chance to still get him and to further improve the team.

    In this particular situation, there are about a dozen players I would be happy with between picks 19 and 50; and I know very little about most of the 2nd round rated prospects.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    Agree but, as matt has posted, we do really need to see who is available at #19. I'm guessing that I'm gonna like someone better than trading down.

    You are in favor of this given our miserable history at second and third round draft picks over the last decade? Hickey has not done anything yet to warrant that level of confidence.

    As well as not having done anything yet to not warrant that level of confidence.

    Bro we only have 6 picks if you trade up depending how far we will go to 5 or possibly 4 and we have holes and depth on the roster that can be improved.
