    I hope they don't give up a second round pick. No way.

    I strongly doubt that we try to trade up. There will be lots of good players available when we pick at #19 and we need all our Draft picks. Higher probability that we try to trade down than trade up.
    Also remember this is Hickey's first pick. He's not going to bet the farm trading up like his predecessor.

    Hey you want to draft a lineman in the first, go for it, not sure how I feel about giving up an extra pick to get that done though...

    A first and a second for a lineman. He better be the best lineman in the draft.

    I would hate this move, for a guy I don't even believe merits a #19 pick.

    If we're locked in on OL in round one and Martin is gone, Su'a Filo would be much better. But I still think we'd be making a mistake.

    Wait a minute...they are thinking of moving up for Martin? Ok. But they want him at guard first? WTF?

    ---------- Post added at 04:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:54 PM ----------

    Btw I think Martin is a guard, but that is why I do not think much of moving up for him. I say it is smoke...or hope.

    Only way I wouldn't be pissed about trading up would be if the phins got a crazy good deal because everyone wants to trade down.

    I actually like the move. Martin is the best OG in this draft. One of the safest prospect in the first round draft.

    You don't cough up a 2nd round pick for a guard.

    Trade up for Matthews? I could live with that. Lewan? Sure. Not a guy you'd play at guard.

    Beasley ****s **** up this time anyways.

    only way i see a trade up being a good idea is if we use a roster player to do it, this draft is too deep for giving up picks

    I doubt we move up. If we move up, I have a feeling it's for either Calvin Pryor or Odell Beckham, Jr.

    If the Jets were to trade their first and second for Martin (or even Mathews) would that worry anybody here? I would ****ing laugh at their stupidity. If we make this move the rest of the AFCE is going to just scoff.

    The only OL worth trading up for is Matthews. If this happens, I'm already done with Hickey.

    Gauging Fins possible trade down partners, SF wants to come up but Baltimore @ No. 17 might make more sense for them. Coaches have history.

    Id be down for a trade up if it was for this and next years 3rd rounders. I hate trading away first and second round picks.

    Too costly - to get in top 10 I would be done with Hickey if he gives a 2nd and 3rd for a Guard

    Trading up for a RT is a loser move. Don't do it...

    Would really suck if we traded up to get Martin. If we trade up, why not trade up for Tackles like Matthews or Lewan who are better than Martin.

    To be fair, Dennis is not looking to go to the top of the draft. Not a fair criticism.

    I could stomach moving a 2nd next year along with our 3rd this year to move up. I'd hope we could get high enough to grab Matthews or Robinson though if we are going to move.

    I wouldn't be happy with that. I think we should just stay put and roll with it. Here's a look at last year's day one moves, just to get an idea.

    ??? That's just his projection as Martin does not have experience at guard.

    Anyways, anything said in the few weeks leading up to the draft is all smoke and mirrors.

    The only player I'd trade up for is Matthews who and has shown that he can play both LT and RT unlike a beloved prospect.

    Trading UP to get cornfed would be one of the worst moves ever.

    If the Phins trade up to draft corn, the new logo should be come this..............

    We’ve mentioned #49ers are more than open to moving up on Thursday night. Let’s add another: #Broncos. They’re talking about moving up, too

    we should trade up for the best long-snapper on the draft too:rolleyes2:

    trading up for a G or a RT is revolting to me, you are paying for Ireland's sins

    The only trade up worth doing is for Mike Evans. thats not going to happen. Trade down no farther than 30 or draft a player with 1st round grade.

    If we trade a first and a second to get Zack Martin then Dennis Hickey should be drug tested for hard drugs on the spot.

    Teams who put their most premium assets in play for offensive lineman(especially non left tackles) never prosper as far as post season wins, and appearances. Not in today's league.

    If we are trading up, it should be for Johnny Football.

    I wouldn't do it for Martin, if you do it go all in for one of the top two OT's

    For us, a team that direly needs to start doing that which we have not done in quite some time- building via drafts/hitting on picks- moving up for anyone is a bad idea.

    Yet, moving up this year for a position in desperate NEED is a notion so ludicrous, a idea so flabbergasting that Hickey should be shot ala Lincoln at the theater but moving up last year for a position in desperate LACK OF NEED was so brilliant that if you have not already purchased first class tickets to Seattle in order to kiss Ireland's feet if Jordan becomes a star, you are not a true fan?

    Ban me indefinitely if you wish, mods. Thats stupid plain and simple. No other way to put it.

    Me Dolfan. Me like sparkly. Will that get me a good-poster banner of some sort? Shoot one over. Ill join the masses.
