    Trade up for Pouncey?

    What are you guys' thoughts on trading our 1st and possible 2nd round picks this year to move up to get Pouncey, then take a corner or NT in the 3rd and 4th rounds. I think we could get good corners in the 3rd round who can contribute in a couple of years. Either way, hopefully we come out of the draft this year with a shutdown corner, replacement for Hampton, and another end to replace Keisel, in addition to another O-lineman. Thoughts?

    he is not good enough to trade up for imo .. if we trade up for OL i vote carimi or sherrod .. but if we can stay put and come away with a solid DB or heyward i am all for it ..

    i dont like sherrod anymore, especially for us. carimi i love.

    i think trading up for pouncey would be foolish, especially if it cost a first and a second. i love him, i think hed be an amazing adition to the team but he really isnt the type of guard that gets rarely coveted in the first round.

    i wouldnt necessarily be upset with trading up depending on which picks were traded. a 2nd and 3rd or 2nd and 4th would be acceptable. would give us a chance to get pouncey and the BPA corner which would shore up our two weakest positions. i hear miami is quasi shopping for trades @ #15, that could open up even more interesting possibilities. it isnt a lock that prince is gone in the top 10, should he fall to 15 i would be more than happy to take him and heyward in the first. and even if he is gone would anyone object to a possible cam jordan+heyward set of picks? or solder+heyward? how about jimmy smith + heyward?

    the possibilities are very tempting especially if we bite the bullet and get a FA CB like J.Joseph or Cromartie and can therefore concentrate on linemen.

    carimi is the most draftable OL for us imo and i think he is the best in the class even if he ends up at RT.. i am tempted to still put sherrod ahead of castonzo,smith and solder simply because he looks like a more natural player but i can see why he might not be the best fit for us ...

    I would really like Pouncey, but I would not trade up for him.

    Would love to have Pouncey, but also do not believe he will be available and do not think it wise to trade up. I think sitting at 31 is the best course of action. This draft class isn't the strongest (except maybe for D-line) so taking the best player available at 31 may be the way to go
