#15 ILB Maualuga (=#23 + #57) #34 OLB Conner Barwin #47 SS Patrick Chung #89 ILB Jasper Brinkley #99 OC Antoine Caldwell What's not to like? Big, strong, physical players. I seriously considered #23 ILB Laurinaitis, but couldn't find a player at #57 that I felt really excited about, the way I am about the idea of putting Maualuga on the roster. At #34, there are so many good players to choose from. Barwin is the binkey, but Robiskie would be a great pick that no one seems to be talking about. Plus, English, Sintim... Alex Mack and Max Unger, Louis Delmas... all legit starters, and probably all available at #34. With that thought, my next idea was trading back into that zone. What do you think of trading back #23 to Cincinnati for #38 and #70. With #99 as a presumptive compensatory for Asante, that would mean seven picks in the first 100. #34 - OLB Clint Sintim #38 - OLB Conner Barwin #47 - SS Patrick Chung #57 - DT Ron Brace #70 - CB Mike Mickens #89 - ILB Jasper Brinkley #99 - OC Antwoine Caldwell With Sintim and Barwin in rotation with Thomas, Woods and TBC, we finally have the same depth at the position that we had in the days of McGinest, Vrabel, Colvin and Phifer. What makes it appealing to trade back is the fact that this draft class runs so deep. I dont think the dropoff from #23 to #38 is really all that dramatic... and the proof is that many mock drafts have teams reaching for Sintim and Barwin in the 20s, and some have them dropping into the 40s.
