If we could get Barret Jones with the 25-30 pick and safety Matt Elam with the 35-40 pick, I would be very happy. What do you think?
Edit: I just looked it up. The trade calculator says the #18 and 50 picks would be worth the #25 and 33 picks.
There is no need to "force" those picks, IMO.
There is good chance that Jones is available later. I would not be surprised if Elam get picked before Jones.
If you were talking about the last really good player at a position, then you might force the pick a little bit; however, there are going to be several really good OLinemen and Safeties in the 2nd round of this
If you're targeting Jones as a Center, then I think Frederick has similar or possibly better talent and Khalad Holmes is not far behind.
