Default trade ups

Barring injuries, we are looking pretty good. I see no one after pick#20 I would trade up for and give up much. Anything in top 20 like T'eo, Keenan Allen or Hunter would cost too much. I don't see any current top 5 WRs (AJ, Walter, Martin, Jean and Posey) being cut or beat out. Terrence Williams and Robert Woods could beat out all but AJ but would cost something to trade up to get or could be at our pick.

With Cushing back, ILB is still a need but could be resolved with a third round.

Nose appears to be at least a couple available in second.

RB: no one is happy with Tate's lack of ability to get on field. Perhaps we can use a lower round to replace him or that could be Grimes ( I don't see Forsett in '13) but if a bigger back is available I'd be interested.

Picks for 2013 as I see it: 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 4, 5a, 5b, 6, 7. maybe another 5 or 6.

I think 3a, 4 and 5a gets a high second.

Tate if he comes back last 4-5 games + playoffs decent would attract a late 20s second round. Too many teams need young big, fast RB. I could see Texans keeping Tate for 2013 last year but doubt they want Foster to go thru another season with such a load.

1, 2a (3-4-5), 2b Tate (I'd throw in 6 or 7 if needed to go higher), 2c ours 3 (Mario-comp), 5 comp


Quality. I could easily see our first being a true best player available.
