This is an open-ended question, but maybe one of you draft value chart guys can answer this hypothetical question.
I am in favor of trading out of the 9 spot, and out of the 13 spot if we acquire the pick from the Bucs. Yes I know it will be difficult to do so in this draft, but just for shids and giggles, what can we expect to reasonably get back if we traded down:
That scale is bs.. Would have traded a mountain of picks last yr to get in top 2, and we almost traded up to 4 to get Richardson.. This yr everyone wants to trade down.. Think this draft will have bunch of trades in 2nd 3rd rounds.. Maybe someone trades up early 1st for geno..
Lots of players that could drop to #9 that interest other teams (Warmack, Milliner, Johnson) and then there could be potential surprises that might occur and send someone to us. Always a chance someone really wants Mingo/Ansah/Jordan/Jones and is willing to move up. I think the Jets will have their chances and I think Idzik will definitely consider it.
There is a lot of good talent from 2-4. If we made the trades you said above and got #13 and 3rd rd from TB, then we would have 8 picks within the first 106 players. That is how you get better!
