    I get it Griz, and I'm not putting you on the spot saying this is gospel. Just putting it out there for the sake of discussion. I might try that draft tool and see what a scenario like this would look like with real people plugged in vs. what I have been running with our #14 pick and the status quo picks remaining. It would at least put some faces to the numbers. Maybe some others here can do this too.

    And finally, I get it that this may just be a pipe dream. But it does kill some time between now and the draft. It's pretty boring at the moment :-)

    JABF the deals I threw out are best case scenario. Maybe a more realistic deal with the niners would be their first and both 2nds. Makes the numerical values more equal but they could throw in that 4th or a future pick too if they had a reason to (IE... another team was wanting to deal too or Phil could convince them we might just take their guy instead)

    But yeah, if we were able to get the kind of value I threw out there it would be great. I was just using it as an example that if we move it better be because the deal was sweet. What I don't want to see is something like...

    To SF: 14 (1100)

    To Chi: 30,61,100 (1,012)

    That kinda deal is one outta JA's playbook and if thats the case we should take a top guy at 14

    All good points. I am going to run that draft tool and try and put some faces to these pick numbers. I've run several with our existing picks. I'll try to run it with the lower first round pick and the additional picks to see what comes up. Maybe some others here can do likewise. I realize it's all conjecture that probably WON'T happen. But it's slow and why not dink around a bit. :-)

    Yep, 99% of the stuff on here that is talked about from Jan-FA then from April-Draft is all speculation and time killing. But hey, its fun to do/think about and going over every single scenario IMO makes watching the draft 100 times more fun. The more educated on something you are the more fun it becomes to watch and I don't think the draft is any exception. Being able to predict/think of stuff that is/going to happen is why I love draft weekend and literally can sit and watch the first 2 days and sometimes day 3 as well.

    B/c of what this draft is, and what the team is needing, I don't think that getting 2 extra picks(2 in the 2nd) is bad, you still get 3 day 1 starters out of your 3 first picks, that could go A LONG way to fixing this def.

    But Ric:
    I'm honestly just killing time with this little debate too because neither side can win this. So who would those three starters be? And who would you be giving up to get them? And how do you know those three would be available? And how do you know Phil would pick them? It is fun to fool with, but I have never ever seen a pre draft scenario that has unfolded.

    There are any #' of guys that can be starters in the first 2-3 rounds. Any # of DB's and DL are capable of starting and playing at a high level, it's also one of the reasons a team looking to drop back WILL NOT get the better deal this year.

    yeah.... theoretically, but in reality, some of those guys that we think can be starters, really can't be and there will be a few that people did not think could be good starters that will be. Just like stocks. Give me tomorrows newspaper today and I bet I can tell you which ones will be winners. All I can say is.... three more weeks can't get here fast enough... I'd like to know what the team looks like after the draft.

    Thanks sox. I'd have to agree with you. The need is greater at S but Dennard has the size to play with the big boys like Megatron. Tough choice but we need a starter with that pick and that says Pryor. Tuitt? Man I just don't like "Domer" linemen. They usually disappoint. I think he might be a decent 3-4 DE or a 4-3 LDE run stopper but we just signed one of the best in the game to do just that. I have my doubts about him as DT though and that's what we need. I don't see him as rusher.
