    Trading out of the first round

    Would anyone be upset if The Steelers traded out of the first round? The Steelers have cap issues and a lot of holes that need to be filled. Depending on what players are still on the board, when would you decide to move down & out of the first round. The main reason I suggest this is because The Bengals Have 2 second rounders #37 & #52 the total value = The Steelers #17. With The Steelers having 3 second rounders they can get a Safety,LB & RB or WR.
    Just wondering what people are thinking.

    Trading out of the first round

    Its honestly not the most exciting draft class I ever saw, and well... At 17 we might find that all the elite players are gone, in which case I'd say moving back might make sense. However not out of the first round. Plenty of talent to be picked up in the latter part if the first round.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Depending on who's on the board , I like it ... but to the Bengals ummm don't think I would , But Miami yes

    new Walterfootball.com draft using the Bengals picks

    37 - WR - DeAndre Hopkins
    48 - SS - Phillip Thomas
    53 - FS - Bacarri Rambo
    79 - OLB - Brandon Jenkins
    112 - ILB - Gerald Hodges

    I know you don't see any RB , but me personally I think Thomas and Rambo would be great going forward (realistically they only draft one Safety this year)
    and Brandon Jenkins could be a steal , or you could go RB here with Mike Gillislee ...
    I love Gerald Hodges in the 4th to play inside or give Depth

    I also would not be particularly comfortable trading out of the first round.... Maybe if we were mid 20's or higher. But at 17 idk even if it is for 2 2nd rounders.... I also doubt Cincy would be down to give up both 2nd rounders.

    But just for the sake of conversation.

    I would only consider it if - J.Jones, M.Te'O, D.Jordan, C.Warmack, B.Mingo, D.Moore, B.Werner, D.Milliner, S.Lotulelei, L.Joeckel were all gone.

    And then if we did trade for cincys pair of 2rders i would love to see it.

    2nd - Ed Lacy RB
    2nd - Justin Hunter WR
    2nd - Phillip Thomas S
    3rd - Sean Porter OLB
    4th - Landry Jones - QB
    5th - Travis Kelce - TE
    6th - Michael Mauti - ILB
    7th - Lucas Nix III - NT

    I think Lacy, Hunter would be our replacement and upgrade at the RB/WR positions when/if Mendenhall and Wallace both leave.
    Thomas Porter Mauti would infuse our Defense with youth at aging positions, Kelce could be our 2nd TE to hold us over with Paulson until heath gets back. Landry Jones could be a decent Backup QB for us in case ben goes down and NIX will be there for development while they give Mclendon a chance to start with taamu backing him up.

    I"m with you. Wouldn't want to trade out of the first round. But if we somehow got three second round draft picks for doing it, that could ease my disappointment.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    agreed this seem viable cause the ravens got upshaw by trading down so of course a ravens fan would suggest this. my motto is never give up your 1st rd pick unless your trading for a once in a life time player

    So wanting to trading down means he's a Ravens fan??

    and not to mention if the player isn't top 10 in this draft , then the value to me isn't any different from 17-early 2nd for most position... Unless Jarvis Jones drops

    WR the value isn't much different ... there are about 7 with late 1st early 2nd round grades to me right now
    Either Ertz or Eifert will be there in the late first or eraly 2nd
    RB isn't worth a 1st round selection there are a couple 2nd or 3rd round players though (Joseph Randle)
    Guard you have Warmack , then Cooper , then Kyle Long ... then the talent drops off
    Safety I was always a fan of doubling up on safeties but I doubt they will the one I really want is David Amerson and to me he has a late first early 2nd grade

    But anyway to me anybody at 17 will be a "reach" unless it's Jarvis Jones or Warmack pretty much ... or somebody drops which I don't see happening, only maybe Jarvis Jones

    I wouldn't be mad with David Amerson , or a WR like Justin Hunter being picked ... I just think they could be had with a trade down

    Thanks. I think they'll trade back into the 20's to grab another pick but want to get a first rd talent.
