Id be cool with, say, swapping firsts with somebody and giving up our 3rd and a late rounder to move into the teens and take him.
Picture this: if we draft Pouncey, our Oline could go Starks-Pouncey-Pouncey-Colon-Adams. That could make our offense deadly enough to make up for the weak secondary.
I don't think any other Olineman would be a good enough pick to take over a corner tho.
If we do trade up for Pouncey, and Ras-I Dowling slips into the mid second, I would also stronly consider trading for him. I know it would require giving up A LOT of picks between the two trades but I think they'd both be big enough difference makers that it would be completely worth it.
You think Kemo will be out and Colon will start? Colon has more penalties by himself than any two other players on our line combined the last two years. Colon is a TERRIBLE lineman.
Besides, we will not go grab him. With this draft there will be pick for pick trades only and we only have seven. Don't think its gonna happen. There are too many lineman that we could take in the first two rounds.
