Jacksonville wants out of the # 10 pick. Jacksonville does not have a 2nd round pick and desperately wants Tebow. I say we move up and take either Haden or McClain. I prefer Haden but would be extremely happy if we were able to land either of these elite prospects.

Not sure of the value jump since you are getting into the top 10 picks but you have to be paying a pretty penny for a top 10 unproven rookie. Granted either of them are worthy of a top 10 but I would rather wait and see if McClain drops... why lose picks and pay more when Earl Thomas or even McClain might be there at 18.

would need 1300 value points to move into spot 10...our pick at 18 is 900 and R2 pick 52 is 380..so we can move up but i would like trent williams or earl thomas over haden or mcclain...if we do that hopefuly we can also get jags 4th round pick 3rd if we lucky

I'm not sure Haden is that much better than all the other top 2 round prospects. I would not be in favor of moving up to get him at 10. McClain on the other hand is a guy whom a D can be built around for years to come he in my mind is worth the move up.

I don't really think linebacker is a huge need after signing Foote back today. I like McClain a lot, and if we take him at #18, that's great. But with five very solid linebackers on the roster now, I don't think moving up for McClain makes a lot of sense at this point. We need o-line and defensive back help a lot more than extra depth at linebacker IMO.

I agree we need OL and DB help first, but we re-signed Foote? Last i heard he was coming to visit and i haven't seen we signed him anywhere.

Apparently it's not official yet, but it's all fine print at this point. It looks like he's coming back for three years.

Foote coming in today as insurance.
I would not trade our 2nd rounder to move up. If anything Trade back and pick up a 2nd rounder. They should Dangle Max Starks and see if they can get a 1 or early rd 2 for him and keep Willie Colon.

That's good i guess lol so now it's pretty much OL, CB or trade down in the first, I'd be pretty shocked if we select anything else after all these signings.

I would love to see us trade down with the Pats and maybe pick up a 2nd second rounder...

I kind of hope we stay where we are at and see who falls to us at the no. 18 spot.

Yeah I think all the signings at key positions directs our FO to play the BPA aspect of the draft... whoever is the best available at 18 will be in Black-n-Gold...

I agree with your thoughts , but the more I think about it a move down for Pouncey makes so much sense.
