We've traded around in drafts quite a bit since our inception.

I think that there are quite a few teams that would like to have one of the young QB's that are coming out. Even if they don't plan to start them right away, I can see a couple teams wanting to trade up to grab one of those second tier QB's.

If one of the teams at the top of the draft don't get luck or RG3 they may not want to reach for a guy and instead take BPA and then want to trade back up into the first to get the QB they covet.

The Browns did that when they drafted Joe Thomas and Brady Quinn I think..

Hate to break the bad news but in recent weeks Kendall Wrights draft stock has ascended to early 20's. Doubt if will be available 27-32?

If Wright's not there, or not your guy, Dwight Jones looks pretty awesome and has comparable size to AJ.

Yates to Jones ACC player of the week last year:

Yea Dwight Jones is a guy I'm high on and looks to be projected right around where we will be picking. If Yates is indeed our guy going into the future it would be neat to have that connection already there if we draft him.

I'd still make the trade back because I don't see all the WR's that we covet going in the first round...

Like others have mentioned Dwight Jones is a guy I wouldn't mind having...Also Sanu is a guy that might still be around...

I've seen sites that have Wright rated above Alshon Jeffrey, but I think teams would be more willing to grab him because of his size over Wright...Same with Sanu...

I think that his size is going to hurt his draft stock...especially if some of those bigger WR's run good times though...We see it every year...Big guys that have good measurables at the combine shoot up draft boards...
