look to the forty niners chomping at the bit.they are loaded woth picks.that money wise.is impossible for them to keep.
Going to be very hard to get any value in trading down if Shefter is right about the 5 OTHER teams in the top 12 that want to do the same...

Draft boards are set by this point.
That means all that’s left is the jockeying for position.
Adam Schefter of ESPN points out what seems obvious in a draft with no sure things, that about half the top 12 want to move down.
Schefter specifically mentioned the Eagles (fourth), Lions (fifth), Browns (sixth), Bills (eighth) and Dolphins (12th) as having made calls trying to trade down.
If that’s the case, the law of supply and demand is about to kick in, making it harder for any of them to get the kind of return they’d normally want, if anyone’s even willing to move up to the spots they occupy.
Exactly. No trading down. Isn't worth it with so many teams wanting the same
Not true. There were not as many teams looking to trade down last year. Last year the top of the draft wanted to be there, this year the opposite. Very few teams will look to trade up this year. That's a fact.
If Vinny Patrollie thinks the Jets shouldn't trade down in the first round
then, obviously, the Jets SHOULD trade down in the first round
This isn't math.
The #1 pick last year was probably worth 2-3x as much as the #1 pick this year.
The #2 pick in 2013 is certainly not worth 3 #1 picks + #2 pick. Some people thought the Redskins gave up too much last year, but it would be laughable to get this much in 2013.
LOL at numerical draft value attributions to picks.
Yet another way to have no clue about the draft.
Where did I say I didn't want the Jets to trade down? You're stretching a bit here, even for you SkippyGoo, to find something of mine to whine about. I just pointed out there will be lots of competition from other teams if the Jets intend to trade down. Do you dispute that?
@AdamSchefter: RT @dan_maren: Didn't you say Miami was trying to move back? Doing what they should? ... Correct. Exploring both options. As they should.
Going to be an interesting night!
Depending on what happens in picks 1-8, I can see a very real possibility of the Jets trading either the #9 or #13 pick to a team that wants to:
-Get a top flight DT
-Have their pick of Tier 1 WRs
Frankly I think that this year's WR class is deep but without any clear stars who are head and shoulders above the competition. I'd hope that not all teams feel that and our #13 pick may be dealt to someone who wants their pick of the WR litter.
@MoveTheSticks: Latest #NFLDraft buzz-- If the 3 OT's go as high as expected, don't be surprised if a team outside the top 10 trades up for 1 of the OG's.
@WilliamsonNFL: @MoveTheSticks I bet 5 of 1st 10 picks will be OL
@MoveTheSticks: @WilliamsonNFL I think 4 are a lock…very likely we could see 5.
@WilliamsonNFL: @MoveTheSticks I would be ALL OVER Warmack if I were #Cardinals for their power running game under Arians
