To me it really is about the compelte draft strategy and what we have to give up. We need impact players. Can we trade down and still get one? Also where is the depth in the draft. If we need certain postions and there is no depth that adds more need. If there is alot of depth then we have more options.
The draft thought to be deep in DT's. With this in mind, should we go with DE or MLB with our first pick and DT later? If we end up with a high piock 3-5, can we trade down a little and still get an impact player (does jot need to be a high 2nd round pick)? Note, we need leaders on our D as well. Manti may not be a top 5 pick, but he is the only impact MLB and has all the intangibles to be the leader of our D for years to come. If we can trade down a little and get him that is where I would go.
One other equation that I am not bringing in is FA. What can we get there? Iam hoping that Aso is realeaed and comes back. That itself will make a difference for our D. Of course we still need to improve our OL. I suspect that we will focus on the OL in later rounds or in FA. I am not sure about what FA's are out there though. This may chnage some of my thoughts going forward.
