    jacksonville is looking to move out of the #8 spot. if crabtree falls, and for some reason the jags don't want him, would you make this trade:

    for #8 pick and a 6th rounder:

    miami gives up:
    #25 pick and a 4th rounder and WR ted ginn

    Nope, I mean what does that accomplish?

    Not only you lose a guy who is on the verge of breaking out at WR . . . our #1 WR, a guy u spent all last year working with and is proven in the NFL for a unproven WR in the NFL . . . but u also lose the #25 pick, and a potential starter from day 1 . . . plus a quality backup/starter in the 4th round. I mean no way I make that trade, u still need Ginn on one side to spread the defense . . . Bess, Camarillo, London and Wilford don't have the best speed, and Crabtree hasn't shown his speed off. Would be a bad trade IMO.

    yeah im not sure if i would either...but if crabtree can be a boldin-type true #1, we have good complimentary receivers to go along with him.

    just a thought...

    Then we would have no speed on offense, because Crabtree certainly isn't a fast guy.

    It's a thought. I was thinking trading up for Crabtree if they were looking for a WR, Crabtree is supposed to be a not miss kinda player (as much as you can say that), unloading Ginn's contract would be a good thing too.

    NO WAY. Maybe if it was Bess or Camnrilo. But no way Ginn. We have to atleast give him his THIRD year to see what he can do. And Crabtree doesnt have the speed but I see a LARRY FITZGERALD clone when I think of him so he and Ginn would be really fun to watch.

    If he had 4.3 speed to go with his other talents I would trade up for him.

    I'm not trading up for a 4.6 WR in a million years. He isn't Calvin Johnson.

    That is giving up way too much to gain way too little. I wouldn't even consider that. If I was BP and Jacksonville called with that proposal I'd probably just hang up the phone.

    Hell. No. Take away Ginn and add another player, not sure who. Then I'd do it, but to take B.J. Raji.... We don't need a WR in the 1st round, or the 2nd round, or the 3rd round...

    if Sanchez or Stafford are there, Denver will jump up from #12 IMO.

    I don't think Crabtree is going to be a great NFL player. He'll be a 1000 yard receiver at best.

    Why pay 20 mil+ for a receiver, lose a starter and a good 4th round pick when we could take a WR in the 1st that will be pretty close to as good as Crabtree at 1/8th the cost, we keep Ginn and find a starter in the 4th round.

    Not that I want a WR in the first let alone trade for one but it makes no sense to trade for this guy, I'd much rather trade for a proven WR like Boldin.

    I bet you the only receiver we draft will be someone in the 4th round or later. Our first 3 maybe 4 picks will be defense, defense and more defense.

    1. M.Johnson OLB
    2. C.Sintim ILB
    2. S.Smith CB (could be J.Gilbert DE if he's still there and S.Smith isn't)
    3. S.Martin CB

    I disagree, I think Crabtree is going to be a fantastic WR in this league . . . he is Anquan Boldin part 2 . . . . great after the catch, faster than Q with great hands. Fact is, that is a projection . . . still some concern with the system he ran at TT and still the trade is just too much to give up. U knew with Fitz and CJ and Andre Johnson how great they would be . . . I can't put Crab in that category.

    I would trade up for him, but not for Ginn. I rather go after Q with the #25 and see if that will pull him.
