Unless they're happy with our CBs we have to stay at 10 and pick the top one on their board. The Giants and the WFT both upgraded at WR in FA and the Eagles could easily take one of the top WRs in round 1 if they fell
Stay put at ten, I'd select in this order if Available, Sewell, Slater, Surtain, Pitts, Horn jr,.....and after that with the draft picks Dallas have available and with the offense pretty much set, I'd like to see the Cowboys be a little more aggressive and go after the player they covet that's in range to trade up to get
I’ve always thought, what if a team sacrificed 1 year’s 1st round pick for a cascade effect. Like what Philly did: trade down, pick up a 2022 1st.
now that first is the dolphins, so they’re hedging bets on who has a terrible 2021. If Philly does again, they have their own 1st to trade back with and pick up an additional 2023 first. If Miami is bad, they have that pick to trade down with too.
Depending on the teams you trade down with, you’ll have additionally opportunities to get top 10 picks from the following year (especially if it’s teams trading up to select a QB, implying they need one and won’t be good the following year).
Suddenly you’re giving yourself 2-3 first round picks every year by trading down that first year. Philly still drafts at 12, that’s not bad. But if we traded down again, to like 25, throw in a third or something.... maybe we pick up another.
Seems like it’d work, but nobody really seems to want to snowball picks like that. Possibly because most GMs are on “win now or else” mandates.
But Unless you need a QB, I’m always a fan of trading down and picking up more players overall. The draft, for as many ‘sure thing’ players people claim are in it every year, is a complete crapshoot. Bring in an army every year and hope 3-4 pan out long term.
