    I second that. It would take the Jets Abraham, the number 4 pick and atleast a 3rd rounder just for them to move up 3 spots. That is way too low.

    It is just a starting point,Faine was the #21 pick overall 3 years ago,and seems to be asolid player .If this was a possible trade out what would be the asking price in y'alls opinion.:challenge

    For me to move down to #12, It would take their #1 next year, their #2 this year, and their newly acquired Bently. They wont accept it, so we should just forget about it.

    There is NO way that the texans trade for Faine, hes not that great of a center and it would only worsen the problem.:brickwall

    Mabye trade down that far for all Cleveland's first round picks for the next 5-10 years, then I might ponder it.

    We can't trade past next years picks.

    It would honestly take their first day picks this year, first and second next year AND a player to get me to move down THAT far. And thats without taking them to the cleaners IMO.

    Damn fool here....there are seven locks and the three quartebacks. By my simple count that's ten. So you're going to slip out of the top ten for Faine and a fourth rounder ? My misery last season was worth a lot more than a good center and a fourth rounder. But that's just me.

    To add another comment, if we went 2-14 and have the hopefully-rare privilege of having the #1 pick in the draft, we better get more than an above average mid-1st rounder, a slightly-above-average C, and a 4th round pick.

    You know..... not everybody is as draft savy as us..... ok, you guys. Dude wants to know what it'll cost.

    If the Raiders approached you, what would be the absolute least they should offer for you to consider the deal??

    the problem with trading to 12 is that there are 5 "can't miss" guys and 1 holy spirit named vince...you can't trade past 6 unless you want jimmy williams

    my elites would be: Bush, Young, Leinart, D'Brick, Mario, Hawk, & Davis

    after them there is a drop off in talent.

    I could agree with that. We have the #1 pick, and we need elite for it, be it an elite trade or an elite pick. Three "above average" just isn't going to make up the difference.
