Johnson's a "second round prospect" in February. He's also 25lbs heavier than Maybin and much more capable against the run. There's a good chance he is a mid-late first rounder come April.
My worry is that Maybin is too light to play the run.
It would be ideal to trade back in the first. Like I said, I'd even take lesser value to do it. But, I just can't see how it is justifiable to take a "specialist" at 15.
I also want a trade down, but you have to have a partner. Moreno isnt a 3 down running back for us because we have a damn near Pro Bowl running back. He would be a 1st round pick who would run the ball 6 times a game. Thats more of a specialist than Maybin. Johnson has 25 lbs, true, but he is taller. Alot taller. He has a lean frame.
