Hahaha nice face palm. I agree but the time has passed for trading back to fill holes through the draft. Watching our defense this year... the problem with the secondary was a lot due to age. Fill holes with Veterans (free agents) and we'll get more immediate impact from them.

The rookies we play next season from the draft have to be playmakers. They need to see the field because they're "special". The 2011 season is do or die for Kubiak (again, lol) and he better not put his job on the line for 'decent' rookies with upside.

The problem is, to trade back there needs to be someone of value at #11 for someone to pay to trade up. It's not a bad spot considering the rookie contracts, but who will fall to #11 that will make another team want to trade up? Maybe the Seahawks want to grab Jake Locker or Ryan Mallet before the Vikings or Dolphins do? It's likely at least 2 QBs will be off the board before our pick, thanks to Carolina and Arizona. Just depends on who all is taken by that point.

the 11th spot is rich with talent if all the underclassman come out, everything hinges on them really.

let me just make one example off top of my head using New England for example. Imagine for a moment I'm Bill Belichick & your Rick Smith.......

I propose to you trading New England's first, projected 32nd (590 points) first pick of 2nd #33 via Carolina (580 points) plus 4th rd. projected #128th (44 points) all for the Texans first pick #11 overall (1250) would you make that trade & if so who would you select? ps. Patriots move up to get Watt

Depends on who's there at #11, but assuming all three of the good DT's are gone, I would be in favor of trading back for 3 picks. However, I think the Pats would offer the 32nd, their 2nd and the 4th, meaning we get less 'points' in the deal. But we get our 1st round pick value spread out, which is something we need for increased depth. Either way, with the late 1st pick, I would go for the LSU DT Nevis. He seems like a clear upgrade over Cody, or possibly a NT if we move to a 3-4. The extra 2nd and 4th could go any way, but still have a huge impact on this team's depth. Probably go WR with the late pick and DB with the other.
