    I like your thinking...

    I wouldn't rule out Miami just yet. I mentioned in another thread they've already landed Wallace, if they trade up with the Steelers they would have 1.12 and 1.17 and two pick in the third round. They could want to try and make a splash to get the fan base excited.

    I like this idea or with anyone for that matter. Drop in the first round and pick up picks next year when the talent is better. I bet that's what NE will be doing.

    If Miami wanted to move up, they could give up their own 2nd round pick, the 2nd round pick they got from the Bears, and the 3rd round pick they got from the Colts in exchange for our 17th overall pick and our 4th rounder.

    1.17 = 950
    4.115 = 64

    Total = 1014 points

    2.42 = 480
    2.54 = 360
    3.82 = 180

    Total = 1020 points

    Miami has 11 picks now, so this trade would give them 10 (2 firsts, 1 third, 2 fourths, 2 fifths, and 3 sevenths).

    We have 8 picks now, so this trade would give us 9 (3 seconds, 2 thirds, 1 fifth, 2 sixths, 1 seventh).

    What could we do with this type of trade?

    2.42 TE Zach Ertz
    2.48 ILB Kevin Minter
    2.54 OLB Jamie Collins
    3.79 RB Giovani Bernard
    3.82 FS Philip Thomas
    5.150 CB Tharold Simon
    6.186 WR Aaron Mellette
    6.206 OG J.C. Tretter
    7.223 SS Earl Wolff


    1.22 OLB Alvin "Bud" Dupree, 6'4" 269
    2.56 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251
    3.87 CB Alex Carter, 6'0" 196
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith, 6'6" 338
    5.160 FS Kurtis Drummond, 6'1" 208
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs, 6'0" 195
    6.212c CB Cam Thomas, 6'0" 195
    7.239 OLB Obum Gwachum, 6'5" 246

    Priority UDFA's:
    RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217
    RB Corey Grant, 5'9" 201
    DE B.J. Dubose, 6'4" 284
    DE Martin Ifedi, 6'3" 275
    FS Jordan Haden, 5'11" 200
    P Spencer Roth, 6'4" 227
