Consider the following draft scenario: 14. NO - Beanie Wells or Knowshon Moreno, RB 23. NE - Connor Barwin, OLB 34. NE - Louis Delmas, S Now suppose NE is sitting at pick #47 with the following players on the board: - Jarron Gilbert, DE - Eric Wood, OG/C - William Moore, S Which of the following options would you prefer: 1. Option A: NE takes one of Gilbert/Wood at 47 and either hopes the other lasts to 58, or packages #89 and 58 to move up and get the other, ending up with Barwin/Delmas/Gilbert/Wood. 2. Option B: NE trades #47 and a conditional 2010 pick to NO for their 2010 1st round pick. NO has no 2nd or 3rd, desperately needs a S, and is said to covet Moore. The conditional pick could be dependent on NO's 2010 draft status (31-32 = 7th rounder, 25-30=6th, 20-25=5th, 15-20=4th, <15=3rd). NE then either hopes one of Gilbert/Wood lasts to 58 or packages #89 and 58 to move up and get one, ending up with Barwin/Delmas and either Gilbert or Wood, plus an extra 2010 1st round pick. Which option would you prefer? It's difficult, as Barwin/Delmas/Gilbert/Wood would be an amazing first day, but I think I'd go for option B. With a strong 2010 draft and two 1sts plus a 2nd we would be in great shape. We might be able to move up and get a franchise OT like Brian Bulaga or a top 3-4 DE like Ndamukong Suh, or package our original #1 and #2 and move up for an SILB like Brandon Spikes or Rolando McClain. Or, use one 1st on OT, one on DE (like Arthur Jones or Lawrence Marsh), and our 2nd on a WR like Marshawn Gilyard or Brandon LaFell.
