    Trade UP For Chris Long

    I don't care what you say.

    I don't want DMC, Gholston, Groves, Ryan, or anyone else.

    I want Son of Howie. At (almost) any cost.

    This player is the epitome of what a football player is. He is the energizer bunny with fangs.

    Yes, I am aware I am being stupid and irrational.

    But I don't care.

    Honestly, DV, my gut feels the same way about this player. He's going to be a dominant football player at the next level, but unfortunately for this franchise we can't afford to give up draft picks.

    my gut tells me this player has what it takes to be a HOF player.

    and that is a very very rare player.

    I would not have a problem giving up what it takes to get this player.

    Long definitely lived up to the hype at combine. Gholston too though.

    Either one I'd be happy with at 6. Would I rather Chris Long? Yes, but Vernon Gholston is no crappy consolation prize.

    And once again we can thank the KC-Jets game for making this even less plausible. I honestly think he's going #1 overall.

    But who knows, Tannenbaum and Mangini have shown they are willing to be active on draft day. The question is how do they evaluate this draft? Do they think it is deep enough at the right positions to say "I want as many picks as i can to upgrade our roster"

    I would say its a super Long shot for him to even be available in a trade. 6 to 1 would take multiple first.

    But if he gets to 3 I think Atlanta would trade back with us in a second....

    You would be willing to give up our first and second for him?

    that's it? without even thinking about it.

    this team has a lot of cap space, can make many more moves, and has a GM that shows the ability to convert mass into fluid.

    you build a champion one player at a time -- championship players.

    Trading up from 6th for anyone in this draft would be 'silly'.

    We need more picks not less.

    No way I'm trading up.

    the model worked last year, and we have two future all-pros on the defense and one of the best drafts in the nfl.

    lol. If we had only lost the Kc game, this conversation would have a lot more validity.

    Just for instance;

    Would you rather have Chris Long

    or Vernon Gholston and A. Rubin.

    Is that a fair enough hypothetical?

    Chris Long - its a no-brainer. I don't trust Gholston. Rubin is not ready to contribute for a full season at the most demanding position on defense and consider this: there's a bumper crop of NT next year.

    I am convinced Chris Long is a HOFer.

    Now propose Jake Long and Rubin I'd have to think about that actually.

    Jake Long is going to be gone by our pick. But the real question is, and you might be interested in this, did Gholston leap-frog Chris Long and if so, does that push Chris Long down into the Jets hands and/or to their trade radar?

    At that point, the player is irrelevant.

    Anyone who wouldn't take moving up from 6 to 1 for only our 2nd round pick in exchange deserves to be beaten to death with a bowling ball.
