Pouring cold water on the Trade back idea

In most post on this site there is one idea that always come up trading back, and I really don't think it is a realistic option. Don't get me wrong if Watkins is taken before we draft I would like to trade back but who would want to trade up?

If we assume that the top 9 is the 3qb’s Clowney Watkins, Mack and the 3 OL guys are all taken Then why would people trade up to 10 if someone falls in love with a safety, cornerback or WR (there is a top 2) left and perhaps after we draft and there is only 1 guy left people will get a bit jumpy. But at 10 we just have to go the BPA at our needs position. In this case I would go for Ebron, or Evans after all we need that second Wr ( and don’t think Ebron won’t be used in the Jimmy Graham mold)

But what if that group doesn’t happen I hear you ask? Well I think we can assume so players will be gone before number 10. Clowney ( regardless of the work ethic questions) No way Watkins gets passed the Bills before we draft ( though personally I think the falcons move up to 2 and grab Clowney and rams get Watkins here) 2 of the O-line men and 2 of the Qb’s will also be gone regardless. Ditto with Mack I really see him either being at 10 after that combine performance.

Looks who is left. A qb (I think Manziel) and lineman (Taylor Lewan probably). Let’s assume that Manziel is left. We may have a trade partner there if the thought is that the titans aren’t sold on Locker, Potential trade partners Cardinals, Browns (if they don’t take one at 4) maybe the jets or the Bengals draft picks 20,26,18 and 24 respectively. So with how deep this WR class is we could still get some talent here or perhaps if one of the safeties drop.

If however it’s the Oline member to drop, it’s the Giants Rams and the Bears (at 12 13 and 14 ) so the only way we get a trade here is if the feel is that the Titans trade back to a team and someone wants to jump them. So along with the teams above looks for perhaps Steelers, Ravens, Dolphins, Cards and perhaps the Saints. Similar talent may be available as above.

I will freely admit I am not a big draftnik really its very tricky to watch the college game over in the UK so I dont really look much at the draft beyond the Lions number then once we draft I do check up on the guys we draft. So I will just ask if we do trade back how does the POD community like here?
