    There are a lot of teams who are looking O-line who just might be interested in trading their #1 pick for the likes of Faneca. He is a 6 time pro-bowler and is not going to be re-signing in Pittsburgh anyway. Why would a team trade a #1 pick you ask? Because if they wait until next year to grab him as a free agent they will have to win a bidding war to get him. If they trade for him now they could get him locked up in a long term deal for less than what it would take next year in the open market. Same scenario as Branch going to Seattle last year. Seattle doesn't get a first round pick this year but considering where they would be picking, could they have gotten a receiver better than Branch at that spot? Is there a better guard in this years draft who stands to contribute immediately at a pro-bowl caliber level?

    Yes, it would hurt us slightly losing someone who knows the offense and plays at that level. But if we came out of the trade with two #1's it would go a long way towards filling that hole with a quality player who would be signed for the next 4 years for a fraction of what we would have to pay Faneca........and without the whine. I say that if there are buyers, we should be sellers! May as well get something out of losing him this year than nothing if we lose him next year!

    Im just not sure we could get a 1st rounder for Alan. He's on the downside of 30 here now and probably has a good 4 years left in him of being a top quality player assuming he doesn't get hurt.

    Alot of teams could use him for sure but I don't know how many would actually part with a 1st round pick for him.
