Trading Down in the 2010 Draft


I believe that this is the year that Parcells duplicates what he did in one of his Dallas drafts and trades down a couple of times in the first round. The reason I say this is that we have too many needs. Specifically, FS, OLB, NT, TE, & WR. That is one of the reasons why Parcells and company have put Justin Smiley on the trading block and are hoping for a 3rd round pick in this year's draft. I believe that to be wishful thinking on their part because it seems like Smiley has been hurt every year he has been in the league.

Another reason that I believe this to be true is that there are only a few difference makers in this draft and they are in alphabetical order:

Eric Berry, Dez Bryant, Joe Haden, Mike Iapati, Rolando Mc Clain, Gerald Mc Coy, Derrick Morgan, Russell Okung, Jason Pierre-Paul, C J Spiller, Suh, Earl Thomas, Sean Weatherspoon, and Dan Williams. Of those listed the most intriguing player is Jason Pierre-Paul. Is he Vernon Gholston, a one year wonder or is he the next De Marcus Ware?

In addition, we do not have a 5th round pick. We do have multiple picks in the 6th and 7th but that will not be enough to catipult us into the top three rounds. In addition, I do not see us moving up to acquire one of these players because we have so many needs and that would cost us a high draft choice in the 2nd or 3rd round. Therefore, I see us trading from 12 to either the NY Giants at 15, Tennessee at 16, or SF at 17 and in return receive a 3rd round pick. The reason I picked these 3 teams is that each of them has a specific need. The Giants have to draft a middle linebacker and the choice they would like to make is between Mc Clain and Weatherspoon. Tennessee also can use a linebacker but their number one need is CB and I believe that if Haden is available that they would like to move ahead of the Niners. Conversely, I believe the Niners would like to move up to secure the 12th and 13th picks so that they can get Haden and an offensive lineman.
