    Thought I would do down on record with my thoughts for tomorrow.

    I want to trade down and I am probably not as demanding as most in terms of a return.

    I'm going to throw two drafts up, one picking as we are and one picking with a trade down.

    First with no trades.

    Round 1 Pick 1: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    - He's been my guy from the start, not going to jump horse now.

    Round 2 Pick 1: Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame
    - Fresh meat on the Defensive Line is a really pressing need, and Tuitt would look good opposite Watt.

    Round 3 Pick 1: Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech
    - Pass rush is another huge issue, so we address that next.

    Round 4 Pick 1: Jordan Zumwalt, ILB, UCLA
    - The trash that we've had to fill in for and play next to Cushing has got to stop.

    Round 4 Pick 35 (COMP): Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
    - If you had told me I was going to take a WR before an OL player a month or two ago I would of told you, you were nuts. But here I am picking up a dynamic slot weapon and big play threat.

    Round 5 Pick 1: Justin Ellis, DT, Louisiana Tech
    - More fresh meat. Someone to rotate with Powe.

    Round 6 Pick 1: Storm Johnson, RB, UCF
    - This guy stood out more to me than Bortles when watching film. Not trusting Arian's return.

    Round 6 Pick 5: Terrance Mitchell, CB, Oregon
    - I like Mitchell as a guy who can make plays on the ball.

    Round 6 Pick 35 (COMP): Spencer Long, OG, Nebraska
    - Go Big Red. Needed someone to add competition on the Offensive Line.

    Round 7 Pick 1: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech
    - In the 7th why not take a wildcard. Doubt he lasts this long in the actual draft but you never know.

    Round 7 Pick 41 (COMP): Gator Hoskins, FB, Marshall
    - My pick as Mr Irrelevant. A versatile weapon of offense who can play FB, TE and H-Back.

    Secondly with a trade down with Minnesota for their 1, 2, 3 this year and 1st next year.

    Round 1 Pick 8 (MINN): Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    - Still get my guy but without the premium and pressure of being 1:1.

    Round 2 Pick 1: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
    - The no-mans land that is our DL is occupied by some premium beef.

    Round 2 Pick 8 (MINN): Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
    - One of my favourite prospects in the draft. Really versatile tool for Crennel.

    Round 3 Pick 1: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State
    - Some competition for OL spots. Hopefully between a draft pick Williams and Q we can fill the gaps from last year.

    Round 3 Pick 8 (MINN): Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
    - Need some help on the back end. Talented prospect.

    Round 4 Pick 1: Jordan Zumwalt, ILB, UCLA
    - The trash that we've had to fill in for and play next to Cushing has got to stop.

    Round 4 Pick 35 (COMP): Trai Turner, OG, LSU
    - More OL help.

    Round 5 Pick 1: Lamin Barrow, ILB, LSU
    - Mostly insurance against Cushing getting hurt. Having to many good LBs in Crennels defense is not an issue.

    Round 6 Pick 1: Storm Johnson, RB, UCF
    - This guy stood out more to me than Bortles when watching film. Not trusting Arian's return.

    Round 6 Pick 5: Dri Archer, WR, Kent State
    - A weapon with big play potential. Need to add a bit more threat to the offense.

    Round 6 Pick 35 (COMP): Rob Blanchflower, TE, Massachusetts
    - A little more competition at TE can't hurt. We'll probably do quite a bit with TEs if OB lives up to his history.

    Round 7 Pick 1: Calvin Barnett, DT, Oklahoma State
    - More bodies for the DL.

    Round 7 Pick 41 (COMP): Gator Hoskins, FB, Marshall
    - My pick as Mr Irrelevant. A versatile weapon of offense who can play FB, TE and H-Back.

    Your Future Picks:
    2015 Round 1 Pick
    2015 Round 1 Pick (MINN)
    2016 Round 1 Pick

    I'm liking a lot of those prospects. Nice job.
