    Does that include our extra fourth rounder and supplemental picks?

    You could always throw in picks from next year to make something happen. I think trading a pick a year from now usually devalues the pick almost a round but of course the team we are trading with would have to guess where we will be picking in round 1 next year.

    I think it's safe to say we'll be picking 32nd next year. :grrhee:

    Not that we would ever be stupid enough to do this, but it was my understanding that you couldn't trade your supplemental picks anyway.

    1st rd value..

    That's why the chart that titan jeff showed us is so top heavy with a huge value difference even within a few picks of the first rd.

    With pro bowlers and especially hall of fame players you are certainly talking about elite status but many solid capable starting players will come from other rds. Except for QB, RB, OT and DE you can find first rate players in later rds. TEs come from anywhere and a lot of great linebackers come later in the draft. Interior offensive linemen also come from anywhere.

    Finally every good team needs grunts and backups and special teams guys. You help your team in many ways in the draft and always remember that the draft once was 14 rds, 12 rds and 10 rds. A late draft pick today is like a mid rd pick back then..
