If we see 5 or 6 first round QBs in a tight grouping as far as risks and another team sees one as the franchise type QB, then a trade is possible. If another sees a different QB as a franchise QB, than another trade is possible. Each time we move down and pick up draft picks for this year or next. We still get a QB in that tight group AND the extra picks.
If we see a Franchise QB or 2 who is superior to the group, then we don't trade down. It's as simple as that. But we make sure everyone wanting to trade up deals with us first and not St Louis exclusively. They advertised their willingness to trade down and we responded as we should.
