    I like the idea of trading back, but do not see us trading back only 2-4 picks. With all of the free agents we sign compared to te few we lost, our numbers are getting high. Plus 9 draft picks. Thats a lot of players. Trading back 2-4 picks will only net us a 5th rounders back. Dont see them risking, even a small risk, dropping a few spots for the same players to add a mid pick. We are not that deperate for players. If we do drop back, which i like the idea of. It will prolly be around 20 or later to help net a 2 or 3 pick

    Dolphins. Warmack is still in play at 12. And we still get a 2nd Rounder that we can spend on a DE, WR, or S

    Dolphins may be worried we take Lane and I'd bet that is who they are looking out which could prompt a trade up with us.

    The only way we trade down better be because there was a run of defense in the first 9 picks.

    I want Ansah, Star, Jordan or Floyd but if they are gone move down and grab OL or CB.

    For those wondering what we could get by trading back:

    http://titansized.com/2013/04/06/2013-nfl-draft-should-tennessee-titans-trade-back-into-1st-round/

    Has a nice break down. But for those who are clicking impaired:
    2013 Tennessee Titans NFL Draft Order and Trade Value Per Pick
    No. 10 (1,300 Points)
    No. 40 (500 Points)
    No. 70 (240 Points)
    No. 97 (0 Points; Compensatory)
    No. 107 (80 Points)
    No. 142 (35 Points)
    No. 202 (0 Points; Compensatory)
    No. 216 (5 Points)
    No. 248 (0 Points; Compensatory)


    Approximate Cost of Trade-Ups, Via Trade Value Chart
    No. 10 (1,300 Points) + No. 40 (500 Points) = No. 4 (1,800 Points)
    No. 40 (500 Points) + No. 70 (240 Points) = No. 24 (740 Points)
    No. 40 (500 Points) + No. 107 (80 Points) = No. 33 (580 Points)
    No. 70 (240 Points) + No. 107 (80 Points) = No. 58 (320 Points)
    No. 107 (80 Points) + No. 142 (35 Points) = No. 97 (112 Points) + No. 221 (3 Points)
    No. 142 (35 Points) + No. 216 (5 Points) = No. 132 (40 Points)

    NOTE: In 2013, No. 97 and No. 132 are “0 points” because they’re compensatory.

    Trading out 2nd and 3rd gets us the number 24 pick. Two 1st rounds and a 3rd? Not bad.

    I'd do it if Austin was around by some miracle.

    Grab Defense, Austin, OL

    I think trading back is realistic too...

    That is, I think the Titans will get a realistic offer to trade down.

    However, it's unrealistic to believe the F.O. is smart enough to do so.

    Contrary to popular belief, I believe both Cooper and Warmack will be gone by 17. Word has it the Cowboys desperately want one of those guys.
