I'm taking offers to trade down if anyone wants to PM me. I'm talking to a couple of teams now since a few offensive skill guys are still on the board.

Got it. I'm doing some pick projections right now. I'll get back with you soon, thanks.

I don't think it was that much of a reach, if a reach at all.

I know that's not saying much considering the Chiefs defense. I think it also may help that he practiced against Braylon Edwards and Steve Breaston, plus he has some versatility given that he has played some safety.

I looked at Browner too, but he is a bit raw, and the Chiefs need help now. I also considered seeking a trade down given the number of quality corners available, but in the words of John McClain, decided not to try and get cute. Given the choice I would have preferred Jones over Jackson or Rogers.

Ok, I see where you came from...

The Chiefs are the reason I traded up. I knew you would probably go CB with Davis off the board so I had to trade up to make sure I got Pac-Man (by far the greatest nickname in American sports)...

Looking for a possible trade down for additional picks. I would not mind late 1st round pick for my 23rd pick, if I also got a second round as well.

ps. nice work by all you would be GM's
draft selection order still needs amended for accuracy.....so far everyone seems to be having fun & keeping on track in a timely manner with solid takes. Great job to Vinny & Fiddy for keeping things updated. At this pace the 1st round will be completed well before the Superbowl, since the Patriots are 6 1/2 point favorites & defending Superbowl champs I suggest order as posted above. thanks y'all

Is Atlanta picking before San Diego?

We need to get the full 3 round order up.

Vinny,

Check page 3 of this thread. I put one up & made what I believe are the right corrections for the picks that weren't settled at the time Draft Blitz.com posted it on their site.

However, it doesn't reflect the trades made in our mock thus far, or yesterday's game results.

I'll just copy it, move it to an easy to see place and adjust for our trades.

I think I have it right. I am color coding the trades so that each trade partner has the same color key. I put it in the prospect thread that is pinned to the top of this forum. Let me know if its funky. Thanks for the help.

Oh, ok. Well the reason I picked Cadillac is because Bettis might not be back next year, and Staley just finished his 8th season and has had some injury issues and to give the steelers running game a different dimension. With Bettis and Staley you have more size and power running, I figured Cadillac would bring a little more speed to the run game and if Bettis does not return they will need another RB anyway. The only other spot I could think of the Steelers would need help at is at the CB spot.

Well they could use a TE imo. as for CB.. that WAS a need for them.. but the changes with the 5 yard rule has actually made their CB set fairly strong with their zone coverage.

As for Cadillac.. the Steelers have been using a power running game for more than a decade now.. maybe longer than that, id have to check. Anyway.. I dont see them changing their smashmouth ideals and going with a speedy RB who is less likely to wear down an opposing defense.

Yeah I know. I just figured with Cadillac they could mix up their running game a bit. Now that I think about it I maybe should have looked for a QB because after watching Big Ben's last 2 games, I don't know if he is all he has been cracked up to be...
