Quote:
If general manager Reggie McKenzie gets his way, though, he won't be picking in the top five. The Raiders want to trade down to recoup the second-round pick that was sent to Cincinnati in the Carson Palmer trade, reports SI.com's Peter King.

The Raiders aren't alone. King also writes that the Browns "badly" want to trade out of the sixth spot, perhaps with designs on landing West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith a few picks later. Cleveland may end up being a "wild card" in the Smith hunt, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer.

Trade back, draft Richardson, hopefully get a pass rusher in the 2nd.

Yup. Richardson/Okafor would be ideal in 1/2.

Would love it to happen, but it's a long shot. Just not enough value in the top 5 for a team to mortgage their future on any one player in this class.

IMO Fisher is probably the most likely to draw trade interest, maybe dion jordan too if he's still there, however if that's the case i wouldn't be shocked if we just kept #3 and drafted him. Milliner might draw some trade up interest too from a team picking mid-late (similar to the cowboys and claiborn). Definitely not expecting any RG3 or Julio Jones type deals though

The only valuable prospects to trade for are LTs. Detroit, Arizona, Philly, SD, Miami, NO all rumored to want a LT.

Of those, Miami has the tools to trade. The rest are unlikely to blow up their for any player in this class. Miami would be most likely, but why not just trade a 2nd for Albert and save the rest of your class?

Just don't see a trade down being available. But stranger things have happened.

LT, LT, LT, there are atleast 5 teams behind us who need one bad MIA who has been the hot name lately spent big in FA and there biggest need is a LT. There is value because Joekal and Fisher are legitimate top 5 prospects and Johnson has moved up also, don't get them confused with the DL prospects.

So let's see. I can give up multiple picks for a crapshoot draft pick or a 2nd for a top LT in the NFL currently.

1) It's a seller market. Someone will be left with a huge question marks at LT after the draft. This creates pressure to move up.

2) Miami needs to make the salary floor within the next few years. draft picks reduce payroll. 2013 is there best chance to package picks they don't need together to move up to make a splash in the draft.

i think he meant hell cost more, because Albert will also be looking for an extension...also, i think all 3 LT's will be better than BA...

Albert is a top LT?
