As for trading our 1st pick away this year for someones next year #1s is too risky. Take the Cowboys for example. They thought Buffalo would be in the Top 5 picking, and their pick is later then their own so that plan backfired.

I was wondering where would Jaamal Brown go, the BIG kid from OU? He is a great tackle and a great athlete for his size. Maybe thats the way to go at #13. If we do trade down, its going to be for a DL, because if we do take an OL in the later rounds, even the 2nd or late 1st, its going to take time for them to develop, and they won't make an immediate impact. If we are going to take an OL is going to be at #13.
I don't think a plant hat get's you the player you want and a first round pick in teh next draft abackfired. As much as I've had it beaten over my head this year here in teh DFW; it was a shrewd move on their part.

Now does it make up for some of their REALLY stupid draft blunders? No, but any objective personcan admit it was a step in the right dircetion. Plus I want to Boys to be thinking Super Bowl in 2006; that way it'll sting just a little more when we beat them, again.
