With concern about whether Luke Kuechly might fall to No15, after his excellent combine, and senior season and ...... well you get the picture, I was wondering how we could potentially move up to guarantee that selection and who might make a suitable trading partner. The team I settled on are the Buffalo Bills
Philadelphia give up No15 (1050pts), No46 (440pts) and our R4 - possibly No118 with 3 third round supplementary picks ahead of us (58pts) to the Bills.
Buffalo gives us their No10 (1300pts) and their No72(230pts).
Why would Buffalo do this? Well their principle needs are 4-3 DE as they are moving to this alignment (allegedly) - there are several such as Ingram, Perry, and Mercilus and they should have a choice at No15. Other needs high up their list includes WR and OLB better filled in R2 than hoping to find a starter 30 selection later.
Our needs are less urgent after the huge elephant in the corner of the room (MLB) is filled and moving to No10 allows us to leapfrog who might be batting their eyelids at Kuechly such as the Chiefs
and possibly the Cowboys
. We would still have the No51 selection, the No72, No77 and No99 - so in many ways all we've lost from moving up in our own 4th rounder and swapped our No46 for their No72.
When the clock starts ticking for the No10 selection, would you pick up the phone and call Buddy Nix?
