    I woudl pass on Mays. The others, no, especially Haden.

    Love the idea- but 18 to 10 is a BIG move- I cant quite imagine the team pulling that trigger.

    I'm sure someone on the board knows the cost chart for trading picks...

    18 to 10
    this years 1st & 3rd, plus next years 1st??? something like that??
    #10 = 1300 pts.

    #18 = 900 pts.

    #52 = 380 pts.

    Give up 1280 to get 1300. That works. If they want us to throw in our 6th rounder as well to make the numbers work out perfectly, so be it.

    that is more reasonable than i thought...

    now, we just need denver to make that trade- and all the other teams above to let Berry slide.

    That #10 pick may belong to Jacksonville instead (there will be coin flip between them and Denver to see who gets that pick and who gets #11). Jacksonville has no 2nd round pick (they traded it to New England during the draft last year). Jacksonville wants Tim Tebow badly to sell tickets, but everyone who watched the Senior Bowl knows that he is not worth a pick in the early first round. However, they may worry about him being off the board before they pick next in round 3. They may be willing to trade down and pick up a 2nd rounder again so that they can get their boy Tebow on board.

    oh geesh...

    the Jags fans would wet their pants if that happened, all 10 of them.

    They will likely be able to get Tebow in Round 3 unless he blows everyone's doors off at the Combine. He looked no better than a 4th or 5th Round pick at the Senior Bowl. He is several years and lots of development away from being an adequete NFL QB.

    Even if the Jags did get Tebow that wouldn't sell that many tickets. No one here really pays attention to the jags in Fla even when they are winning.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    If we pass on Joe Haden or Earl Thomas for a guy who really doesnt belong in the first round let alone at 18 would be retarded.

And I'm a PSU HOMER!!!
    As a fellow PSU homer, I've got Sean Lee in my mock in Rd. 3. He might go sooner, but I think that round is where we need to look for an ILB. If he is not there, there are several other good choices that may be.

    Because no one pays attention to them even when they are winning, I think Wayne Weaver will consider Tebow to be his last ditch effort to drum up interest (even it is little more than a publicity stunt) in order to keep the team from becoming the L.A. Jaguars (which may be inevitable anyway).

    I think a team like New England, who has 3 second round picks, could take a shot on Tebow with one of those picks, since they do not have a decent backup to Brady (Brian Hoyer?) and they could also implement a wildcat-type of scheme to throw a new wrinkle into their offense.
