Ok, we have the QB and no 2nd round pick. So now do we trade down from #3 and pick up a 2nd round pick to go along with a later 1st rounder?


Methinks we do.

yeah we will it'll move us back a bit in the second round but it'll be a good compensation swap for Matt Cassel.

I think they try, but don't know if they'll get any takers...

seems like the prudent move.

we'd probably get two more immediate starters out of it that way. quite a haul for what was originally just a 1st and 2nd round pick.

One 2nd rounder is a very cheap price to ask for trading down even a few slots from where we are at #3. It wouldn't bother me to drop ~10 slots for a 2nd, but realistically that's cheap as hell....Most likely you're looking at a couple of 2nds and a 3 or a 1st and 2nd.

There is already a thread discussing what to do with the #3 pick.

A trade down is the obvious hope, but not sure how much desire there will be for that pick.

What if Stafford is still on the board? That'd be trade bait.

No i want a great player. I would think to trade lj to someone for that 2nd rounder.

He won't be, and Pioli knows that.

Maybe but if it's any indication of his thinking Pioli said explicitly that we would be taking a player at #3 "that we really like" or something of the sort.

He chose his words in a way that left no room for trading the pick.

My guess is that Detroit will take Stafford and Pioli probably knows that. My guess is we take Curry at the #3 spot unless we found a trade down partner. The problem is, for any team to move to the #3 pick has to give up to much in the long run. I would assume the teams that would want to trade up would want Stafford, but again he isn't likely to be there at #3 anyways.

move back to 10ish, pick up a second.

then we've essentially gotten Cassel and Vrabel for free. and there is value on the board at that spot. not so much at #3
