    Supposed we got the Chiefs/Viking's # 1 for him ; what would we do?
    Is their a Stud player you think BB would want or would he trade down.
    Can we afford to sign two # 1's?
    What would you like to see us do.
    thanks

    What we always do, go for the value.

    BB would look to get Aaron Curry to pair inside with Mayo.

    Trade it for an established player and future draft picks.

    See what's there with the second #1, and likely trade it for future picks. But, frankly, the real answer is..."whatever's best for the football team" and "something not beholden to any 'pattern' he's ever displayed before."

    There's no way we're getting the Chiefs #1.

    First of all there is a huge difference between the Chiefs pick at #3 and the Vikes pick at #22.

    Essentially you could sign four guys at #22 for what the #3 pick would cost.
    (2007)
    #3 = 5yrs - $42.50M - $8.50M ave cap #

    #22 = 5yrs - $9.20M - $1.84M ave cap#


    They would try to trade back out of the #3, if they could get down to the 10-12 range the money drops drastically.

    They would probably make the pick at #22. A lot of juniors coming out this year, next years draft could be weaker than most.

    Having #22 and #23 would be really sweet and definitely make it interesting to see who they picked first. Could make some good locker room heckling...

    "They picked me first, #23..."

    Two impact players for the defense would be nice.

    I'd rather have the #22 than the #3, in some ways. Top 5 picks rarely earn their paycheck.

    If we trade Cassell for a #1, should we draft Tyler Hansbrough?

    #3 from KC is not realistic, and if we somehow had it we would trade down is fast as possible, probably at a discount.

    #22 from Minnesota (or #20 from Detroit) are realistic possibilities. I like the masturbation idea. After that we would do one of 4 things, in approximate order of probability (most to least):

    - Use it as a value pick
    - Trade back slightly with it and use it as a value pick
    - Trade it into 2010
    - Combine it with other picks to move up for someone special. There's too much talent in this draft to justify this, and a major move up is not BB's style and would not be cost-effective. Much as I love Aaron Curry (see my avatar) and dream about pairing him with Mayo, he's going to go too high to be cost-effective.

    Some combinations at 22/23 which I like:

    - William Moore/Sean Smith S + best available DE/OLB (Everett Brown, Brian Orapko, Greg Hardy, Paul Kruger, Michael Johnson, Aaron Maybin or Clint Sintim)
    - One of above combos + Brandon Spikes/Rey Maualuga ILB
    - One of above combos + Jason Smith/Eben Britton/William Beatty OT

    I could see us making small trades, e.g., trading #22/23 and #57 to a team like the Giants for #29 and #44 (via New Orleans from the Jeremy Shockey trade). A small trade back like this in the first would allow us to move up to the mid-second and get another first or near first-round calibre talent who falls such as any of the above listed picks or Connor Barwin, Max Unger, Alex Mack or Brandon Pettigrew, Percy Harvin or DJ Moore, among others.

    Do not see us take a high #1 pick for Cassell would not fit into the salary structure of this team.. maybe a pick in the mid 20's... or a couple of early 2nd round picks..

    I could certainly see BB and the Pats trade a #1 and move down......kills us as Pats fans at the draft day parties.....but in the end he knows best! I could also see him go after a top shelf LB or CB with that pick this year...........or even another OL........will be interesting.......First of all would have to see if Cassel could fetch a 1st........
