I'm pretty certain that we all agree that the top-3 needs to consider in round one are...
If you disagree, please include your rationale and I'd be happy to entertain other options.
1st question for you all...
Is the #1 overall pick worth trading up for? And what would you be willing to trade to make it happen? Note: Future picks, i.e. 2012 1st, etc. are NOT permitted in this Mock.
My top 3 needs are -
Goldson will most likely be gone as an UFA and im sorry but Reggie Smith isnt the answer. While I would try to sign UFA to be O.J. Atogwe for two years as a stopgap, we need a franchise play-making FS with Mays staying at SS.
I dont know what pick we have in your forum mock but I wouldnt trade up because doing so would require too much in exchange. I would try to trade a 4th rounder to WSH for Haynesworth though. Imagine Haynesworth and Franklin side by side in a 4-3 base defense. If you cant get him for a 4th, try to trade Franklin for him straight up.
If you dont have Luck/Locker on the board when its your pick, I would try to trade down a few spots but make sure that you're still going to get CB Patrick Peterson. Gaining an extra 2nd or 3rd plus getting Peterson would be great because you could then use a 2nd/3rd or both 2nd rounders to move back into the first round to hopefully get a playmaking FS or a QB who slips into the late 20's even though I would much rather have a FS.
