I honestly don't see us beating either ATL tonight or Chicago next week so let's say we finish with a top 5 pick. With so many free agents, especially on defense, I suggest a trade back.
If it was Milliner you were interested in, is Johnathan Banks any worse?
If it was one of the many pass rushing DE that are available, take your pick at 5 or 15, right?
If it was Teo, well there might not be another LB like him but how many LB's go in the top 5?
The only position I can see that might warrant staying at 5 would be OT, Luke Joeckel.
Last year Tampa traded back 2 spots with Jacksonville and picked up a 4th. A 4th that we currently don't have this year from last years trade for Tahir Whitehead.
My ideal scenario would be us winning the Super Bowl but with this group of guys, it ain't happening. So I would like to trade down, maybe in the top 8, 10, 12, pick up a second, third or fourth and add some much needed talent to this squad.
Could you see a team like Arizona try and trade up for a stud OT like Joeckel if the Eagles pass on him?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all my Lion's friends, hopefully 2013 is a little more forgiving.
