Trading Revis makes a lot of sense for many reasons.
Unless we hire a good GM, who can do something with the picks and money, it wouldn't really matter.
Thats a start. Tebow as QB next season will not happen. The basic premise is ok though. 2014 looks like a draft bonanza as far as blue chip QB prospects go. I agree that in a perfect world we should be looking to trade down out of our 9th place spot and targeting extra picks. I'd like to see a trade back to the 20's in exchange for a 2nd this season or ideally a 2014 1st. Conventional draft wisdom is that a 2nd this season is worth a 1st next season. I would be ok with a 2nd trade down from the 20's to the early 2nd if it nets another 2nd rounder for 2014 as well.
The key with trading down is to still maintain the number of picks we have this season while loading up on some extras for next year.
It looks like one of either Revis or Cro is expendable. Personally I'd prefer trying to resign Revis and trading Cro. Cro is worth a 2nd rounder and his value will never be higher than right now. Again I would then look to trade the 2013 2nd rounder for a 2014 1st. That is fair value for the pick.
At QB the picture is muddled this year. I see a Matt Moore type veteran as a possibility. I'd prefer a guy like Flynn that has some upside/suprise potential.
