In the Starting Line-up
Join Date: Jan 2007
DW Toys Fifth annual Trade-A-Rama: 1st round, picks 20-32
20. Tennessee Titans – C Peter Konz Wisconsin
21. Cincinnati Bengals –CB Stephen Gilmore S.Car.
Great combine. Taller CB.
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS:
Rocky McIntosh, OLB
Robert Meachem, WR (good compliment to Green)
Resign Lawson and they can certainly afford it.
22. Cleveland Browns- QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M
McCoy still starts….for now.
23. Detroit Lions - S Mark Barron, Alabama
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS: They need to resign Tulloch
DE Jonathan Fanene would be a great pick up to spell Vanden Bosch
24. Pittsburgh Steelers – OT Mike Adams Ohio St.
25. Denver Broncos - DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State
They certainly have CAP room!
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS: Another league shaker! Mario Williams DE. He would be the instantaneous defensive face of the Team. The Denver “Teemarios” They will back up the Brinks truck for this one. Dumervil, Williams and Miller. Now add a little Fletcher Cox. It will be a long day for some Offenses. Tebow won’t have to score more than 10.
Brandon Jacobs RB is resistant to take a cut from the Giants. Either as a CAP casualty or for a low round pick, the Giants might let him walk. Will take the pressure off Tebow.
The second choice I suggest is a trade of a low pick to get Redskins TE Chris Cooley. Good blocker nice in short patterns for Tebow. Kid needs a safety valve.
26. Houston Texans - WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech
Great Drafts have allowed an All Pro like Mario to leave and Houston stays on point still.
27. Seattle Seahawks (trade) via New England Patriots - DE/OLB Andre Branch, Clemson
O.K. What is Seattle thinking? ??Perhaps the most under the radar FA QB is Bryan Hoyer. He has been the understudy for the best in the business for years in TB and O’Brien worked with him as well. He has size, arm strength and has been on a solid winning program. Matt Hasslebeck came in under similar circumstance and player well for the Hawks for years. This will be a 2nd round tender and trade for the Pats. Manning, Flynn and Orton have homes targeted as we shall see. Henne has been a disappointment. Campbell is not going to be any better than Jackson. Quinn ain’t Flynn! The Seahawks also get the Pats first round pick #27 here. And the Pats add a conditional pick in 2013 if Hoyer does not have starts. The Hawks save a pick this year and still have a first rounder and the move is less costly payroll than Peyton, Flynn, Campbell or Orton. Who said Vince Young??????
The Seahawks have CAP room.
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS: Dan Connor ILB who is solid and smart and then I am going to say if they can convince them that Seattle is a great town to be in, these two would work
Paul Soliai, DT (may be Bryant’s replacement as he moves form NT to DT)
and a bigger signing, Jared Gaither, OT
28. Green Bay Packers - DE Whitney Mercilus, Illinois
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS:C Dan Koppen. Replaces Wells. He gets it.
29. Baltimore Ravens - OLB Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
Upshaw had a weak combine but good tape and a great program.
Ravens don’t have a lot of CAP room to get a WR like Wallace but this makes sense.
POSSIBLE FA AQUISTIONS: Laurent Robinson, WR (poor man’s Wallace?)
30. Pittsburg (trade) from San Francisco 49ers - DT Devon Still, Penn State.
OK The Niners get Mike Wallace BUT become a little bit less fluid in the bank statement.
31. New England Patriots – TE Coby Fleener Stanford.
Think like BB for this pick. There is something going on here……..?. Think of the options. Fleener is just as fast as many WR coming in the next few rounds. He can block as a TE. Three TEs with WR speed running through the opponent’s defensive backfield.
32. New York Giants - LB Dont'a Hightower, Alabama
