    Evans disappears in too many games.

    I'm all in on Clowney, Barr, or Mack. If one of these guys are not available, I believe we should trade back. With a new coaching staff, they'll want some new blood to mix it up. I'm willing to trade back to the late teens/early 20s. That would put us in play for players like: Nix III, Dennard, Mosley, Hageman, Martin, Kouandjio, Ealy, and Antonio Richardson to name a few.

    Last year Buffalo traded #8 & #71 to the Rams for #16, #46, #78, and #222. Here's a trade we could do.. #11 & 4th for #20ish, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. It would work on the trade value chart. We move back nearly 10 spots in the first, put pickup a 2nd/3rd and move back with our 4th. Very possible. Sammy Watkins will be off the board, in todays league somebody will be looking to trade up for the #2 WR (Evans or Lee). Teams I could see trading up for a WR: PIT (15), BAL (16), NYJ (18), KC (23), CIN (24), & CAR (28). My preference would be NYJ, KC, or CIN. http://www.draftcountdown.com/features/Value-Chart.php

    1st Rd: Dee Ford
    2nd Rd: Stephon Tuitt
    2nd Rd: RB of choice (Carey, Mason, Hyde, Sankey)
    3rd Rd: Offensive Tackle
    4th Rd: AJ McCarron
    5th Rd: NT

    That would be a dream draft for me. We pickup a potential stud OLB & DE. With that draft we keep Pollard & Verner. We also target an ILB (Dansby or Butler) & another NT in free agency. Grind out the run (Greene + 2nd rd RB), have an elite defense, and than Locker/McCarron managing the pass.

    Not a fan of the 9-technique?

    Just not really getting why all of a sudden he jumped into the first round. It happened after the Senior Bowl. First sack he was clearly offsides. Second sack Logan Thomas held onto the ball forever. Tipped pass he was unblocked.

    Great.

    People live in the moment, I see exactly what youre saying about him, but he stood out among all his peers. No one else in that game really jumped out at me and made me take notice of them. James White did have 2 nice stiff arms, and Jordan Tripp made some nice plays, but Ford got MVP, he made a case for himself.

    Remember, in my mock i'm projected a trade back to early 20s. Ford wouldn't be a huge reach at 23/24.

    I'd rather just stay at 11 and pick someone worth a first round pick.

    I just went back to 2005 and couldn't find a pass rusher picked in the first round Dee Ford's size who has been successful. Aaron Maybin, Jerry Hughes and Bruce Irvin are the only guys drafted under 250 lbs and none of them have worked out. I guess the book is still out on Irvin, but 2013 wasn't a good year.

    I'm all for trading back if Mack/Barr aren't available at #11. We need more picks, lots of holes.
