I propose to you trading New England's first, projected 32nd (590 points) first pick of 2nd #33 via Carolina (580 points) plus 4th rd. projected #128th (44 points) all for the Texans first pick #11 overall (1250) would you make that trade & if so who would you select?
ps. Patriots move up to get Watt
Depends on who's there at #11, but assuming all three of the good DT's are gone, I would be in favor of trading back for 3 picks. However, I think the Pats would offer the 32nd, their 2nd and the 4th, meaning we get less 'points' in the deal. But we get our 1st round pick value spread out, which is something we need for increased depth. Either way, with the late 1st pick, I would go for the LSU DT Nevis. He seems like a clear upgrade over Cody, or possibly a NT if we move to a 3-4. The extra 2nd and 4th could go any way, but still have a huge impact on this team's depth. Probably go WR with the late pick and DB with the other.
