We also have these picks: 57 (second round), 89 (third round), 95 (third round), and five other picks.

That's a total of two (2) second rounders, three (3) third rounders and seven (7) other picks.

From 52, to move up to the middle (48) is only 4 slots.
What I mean is that we should be able to use one or two mid and/or late round picks to move up 4-8 spots in the second round, keeping intact two second rounders and three third rounders (rather than 2 third rounders as I had stated.)

Not that we have to, but if we want to, we could.
Quote from the Panthers GM which I think applies superbly to this situation:

Quote:
“No. Why not? . . . If I have a dollar, I’d rather have the dollar than the three dimes. That’s all there is to it,” Gettleman said. “There’s no, listen, when you trade back, you can think you’re smart, but there’s no guarantee, there are none. From my view, Star was too good to pass up. Why talk yourself out of somebody good, ‘Oh I’m going to be clever.
