Just thought you should know that this what we are choosing to do."
Things don't work that way. There has to be a player that Houston desperately wants and would be dying to trade up for to make such a trade attractive to them. Likewise with making a trade to Denver.
And as one person says, the values don't add up. No team is going to be giving up picks that easy; no team is that stupid. You have to persuade them.

You "prediction" is as likely to happen as me of crapping a living reproduction of DeMarcus Ware that can start for the boys at OLB next year.
This is exactly why I stop reading mocks that have the word "trade" in them.
Well, I guess I don't have a problem with wishful thinking.....I just don't think it's realistic. How often to trades like the one suggested happen?
We went YEARS without two first round picks. The only reason we had two last year was because the Bills stupidly HAD to have Losman.
I am now FIRMLY in the "Draft the Best Player On Your Draft Board" camp. I don't think you go wrong doing this.
I would love to see this....Now, again this is my ideal.
