Default Derrick Johnson

Just from surfing mocks around the net and listening to the opinions of everyone here, it seems the general consensus is that a lot of teams are going to be looking to move down this draft. That is try and find the less well known talent later in the 1st and early 2nd. Obviously with teams wanting to move down there will be teams wanting to move up.

Now I've seen mocks having DJ go as high as the 3rd pick to the Browns, but more realistically I'd see him going around 5th or 6th. Statistically what would Houston have to give up to MOVE UP from the 13th pick and take the one sure fire awesome linebacker in this years draft? Our 2nd and maybe one of our 3rds? Both of our 3rds? More?? I know it is a bold move but in a weak draft, it doesn't seem to crazy. That would take Houston's linebacker corp from pretty good to freaking scary instantly.

BTW, I am aware of Houston's other glaring needs, but a consistent pass rush is one of the biggest IMO!

Please voice your opinions! Thank you for your time.
