    Jimmy Johnson once traded the following years 1st rd pick in order to get a pick in the early second round. He used that pick to draft Surtain; a player he had a strong conviction on.
    Is there a player that fell out of the 1st rd last night, that might be worth giving up next years' 1st rd pick for? Lamp, perhaps or McDowell

    I don't see McDowell as a fit on this team. His drive is very questionable. Why replace Jordan Phillips with another guy who lacks motivation? I think Miami will try to avoid taking another dude with questionable work ethic.

    Give me the 110% effort second rounder. We happen to have one of those that turned out very well.

    Why would we trade next year's first to draft a guard now?. Get over it guys. We're not drafting a guard at 54 either. Not my choice, just saying it's not going to happen. And the only way I see us trading up would be like moving us 3 or 4 spots by using one of our 3 picks in round 5. That could happen if a guy they really like got close enough to us. We don't have the amo to move up. We screw up that chance last year in the Carroo trade. We could possibly move down. You should only move up when you're just one or two players away to make a run at the super bowl. Otherwise you're building your team and to do that you need to keep your picks and get extra picks when possible

    Ozzy rules!!

    I agree but taking a DT at some point tonight should not be off the table. We need a run stuffing player in there to rotate with Suh and Phillips

    I would be OK with them taking a developmental DT down the line, but I would be bummed if they selected McDowell. Like I said, 110% guys.

    Say what you want about Harris, can't question the man's effort. Hopefully we get more of the same in rounds 2 and 3 tonight.

    Get Chicago on the phone...

    Shoot our 2nd, a 5th, and Carroo for their pick (36th)...

    Let"s hope they want back some of the bounty they gave to Frisco. Carroo will have served a purpose.

    People would freak out if we did this, but I would be all for it if it nets us a first round talent at a position of need right now.

    I was really opening the discussion for opinions, I only mentioned Lamp and McDowell, simply because they were the 1st 2 names that came to mind as players who were projected as 1st rounders.
    Another possibility is trading next yrs 2nd to get an early 3rd tonight.

    I'd give a 1st but you have to give me more then your 2nd this year. 2nd and 4th this year is the starting point

    If they stop here with the receivers, I think we'll be OK. If they take ANOTHER WR in the third, I'll be pretty upset.

    And I am not one for draft day hysterics.

    It's so strange to think about, but the Browns and 49ers had probably the two best drafts yesterday.

    I said that about Jacksonville last year. Thought they'd be in the playoffs with everything they did in the offseason.

    And boy, was I wrong.

    I am more impressed by the Browns than I am by the 49ers. Lynch wasn't going to take Foster at #2-3. I don't buy that BS for one second.

    Kudos to Lynch for fleecing the Bears, though. He did a great job for his first draft, but I like the Browns first round more.

    49er fans are very, very happy right now. Lots of praise to Lynch for selling that pick to Chicago and getting so much in return. If Foster stays healthy for them, they have certainly done a lot to get their defense going. I think they gauged the quarterback situation correctly. Why force the pick?

    As for Miami, I really want one of those top safeties in round two. Jones maybe? That said, Feeney, Eflein or Johnson would fill a big need at guard.

    Honestly, I might just double-up with another pass rusher depending on who makes it to #54.

    I keep seeing all the people saying they want a guard at 54 and they're going to be let down because our FO doesn't want to draft one that early. They want defense, defense and more defense and I can't blame them. Our defense was horrible last year so we need help.

    Ozzy rules!!

    If we draft every position, defense, will we have a better record than last season?

    I don't know. We could have a better team next season and not win 10 games with the schedule we have. I never said we should draft defense with every pick. I said the FO wants defense as much as possible. I'd love for us to draft a guard but I just don't see it happening at 54. It might happen at 97 but again, that's not a sure thing. We do need help on defense as they were horrible last year. You need defense to win in the playoffs. Are you suggesting we need offense more than we need defense at this point?

    Ozzy rules!!

    No...I'm saying that upgrading the o-line is as important as upgrading the defense which was addressed in FA (Timmons, Hayes, McDonald) and the return of Jones. As I said before, I feel the defense is better than it was last season just with that. That said, I doubt if we will be a Super Bowl caliber defense...I'll give us average/above average with all things clicking. If we have an average offense (rickety o-line) coupled with the average defense...that sounds like no playoffs...back to 7-9, 6-10.

    Snipe for Chidobe Awuzie. Offer our next years first straight up for a top 15 second rounder and get the best nickel available. FS will be fine when TJ McDonald comes back from suspension and Allen, Thomas and Awuzie himself can cover that hole in the meanwhile. Use our second for an OLB with pass rush ability to sub in at RE in subs. Williams, Bowser, Willis, Anderson, Lawson. I wouldn't mind an off LB given he can play SAM. Cunningham, Anzalone, McMillan. Take best OG available on the third, even if it takes trading up within the third to get your guy, hopefully not. Go DT with two of our 5ths. Jones and Toikolovatu would be nice. The last 5th and 7th could be BPA.

    Good points. I am worry about the oline too. Don't trust what we have at guard or that Pounce can stay healthy(he needs to get healthy first before he stays healthy). I feel the FO messed up in free agency by not getting a top tier guard. We wouldn't have to worry so much about it now. Hoping for the best tonight of course.

    Funny when I look at the top players still on the board according to CBS the 22nd player on that board is an OLB from bama. Tim Williams but I doubt we pull the trigger on him

    I still believe we must get another pick. Any chance we trade our 2nd and get another 3rd and possibly a 4th this year? We needed Lamp, but there is no way we will get him with our pick in the 2nd. Instead we should aim for Asiata, Siragusa or Isidora.

    we could move down some and get a 4 round pick in return. I want to move down but not a lot. Don't want to miss on good talent. BTW,if we stay at 54 we should be drafting around 9pm?

    I'd rather have either a guard who can play center or a center who can play guard for now till Pouncey goes down or is released next season
