    With these 4 picks in the first two rounds, I hope (and we can afford to) roll the dice once.

    What I mean is take a flier on a receiver, a fallen runningback, BPA. Examples would be Donald Brown and Percy Harvin.

    So, if someone were to fall a good distance, who would you roll the dice on?

    Trade up for Aaron Curry if he falls to 8 or lower. Possibly trade up for BJ Raji or Andre Smith if they falls to 12 or lower - only if BB is really convinced that their issues are manageable. Trade up for Malcolm Jenkins if he falls to 15 or lower.

    Otherwise I roll the dice on Connor Barwin at 23. The only other player I would consider is Maualuga, and only if BB felt he were a 3 down backer and could fit in the system, but I kind of doubt that.

    Is BB targeting Andre Smith? Does he think Smith will fall past Cincy?

    I have no idea who BB is targeting. I think he must like more than one player. I wouldn't be surprised if Andre Smith were one of the options he was considering, but unlike some I have no crystal ball.

    I like Barwin a lot, but I think he's going to be there at 34. If I thought he was going to go between 23 and 34, then I'd move up from 34, but I don't think we use 23 on him.

    lol but you do have one that says 40% chance he falls out of the top 8! ;) Unlike SOME I choose not to believe every single piece of crap that's flung on the wall with just 24 hours b4 the draft.

    My idea of a gamble would be to pass on Darius Butler at 23, and hope that he's still there at 34.

    That's how I read it...but it seems a lot to be giving up.

    Or, maybe BB is expressing interest in Jackson to get KC to reach for him, allowing Curry or one of the top 3 OT to fall.
