    They could just let the clock run out ... as many times as they want, untill they get to a "ballpark" of a salary they want to pay

    Problem is that the "insane salary and guaranteed money" isn't just the first pick or two anymore. It's traveling down, like last year with Harvey's holdout with JAX at #8. The salaries are so ridiculous up top that you might as well overpay for a player you'd like more than take the risk of spending a little less on a player you don't want as much. I can understand maybe a 1 or 2 pick drop by not doing anything if nobody will trade and the player they want won't go before... but that's a pretty risky move.

    That's why ever since HWSNBN flamed out I'm of the opinion that you take the line guy first. For every Matty Ryan there are three to five David Carrs. If Andre Smith runs his agility stuff OK at the combine and you believe he's the real deal, I'd wait on the Juniors coming out in 2010 there'll be a herd of them at QB. Everyone wants the triad. But no one wants a bust at QB. Draft the QB first is poison that takes three to five years to over come when you miss. Atlanta '09 success isn't such a mystery when you consider they hit their guy ....and went into the rebuild with two of our twos in their back pockets.

    Can't trade out of the slot because of the value chart...pretty much stuck with writing the big check. Better be sure. I wonder if Detroit would take our 2010 2 and our one for the move up ?
