Until the Steelers know for sure what they have in Mendy Parker is staying put.

#3 WTF? so you're basically trading willie to move up 12 spots in the first?

Option #2 is a no brainer. Two second round picks are more valuable than the last pick in the first round. Even if we had to give them a 2010 4th rounder instead of them giving us a 2010 4th rounder, it would still be in our favor.

Using the standard draft trade value chart, pick #32 is worth 590, pick #45 is worth 450, and pick #60 is worth 300. The Giants could theoretically package those 2 second rounders to move up as high as #23 or #24, so why would they throw in a 4th rounder next year only to move up to #32. I'd jump all over that right now if it were somehow offered.

#2 would be hard to turn down. Unless the steelers do have an "our guy" and he is still there at #32. Otherwise 3 picks in the 2nd round (45, 60 and 64) could really fill some holes. I wish you hadn't posted this because it's such false hope... :cry:

#2 in a heartbeat...& I'd throw in any leftover Plax jerseys to boot.

Any of them would be fine by me. #3 I like the most as we likely land a better player, possibly Oher.

#2 or #3, depending on who they are targeting.
damn, lots of 2nd rounders makes option 2 look nice, but getting up into pick #20 AND shedding two sizeable contracts is an interesting move. I think Pap would like #3.

I just like to play devil's advocate to try and stir things up. I may not necessarily believe what I'm arguing with anyone, just trying to make sure there's something to think about and discuss.

Although, #3 would be a tantalizing option. :Cheers

no, I think you are right in some respects concerning our expensive, older starters. I would just want to make sure we have the right guys ready to step in.

I just threw out a pretty crazy trade scenario with KC that would be rediculous in another thread... I'm probably just a tad sauced and wishful at the moment.

the parker part screws that one all up...

detroit makes an offer for foote and gives up a higher pick (say 20 overall for 32 overall+foote) and I'd do it...

otherwise, Parrish is the only one that truly makes sense... the others give us like 27 picks and not much else... and unless you have a target, you don't just trade.
