Teams Looking to Move Up
 
What are some teams that could be looking to move up in the draft?

I know the Dolphins are rumored to be looking at moving up to #3 for Tannehill, but who else?

Could a team move up in the early-mid 20's to select a Brandon Weeden or Brock Osweiler?

What about teams that want their choice of 2nd RB?

This is also where we could start seeing some of the DT and 3-4 OLB going off the board, so what teams are looking towards moving up for those players?

I think Jacksonville moves somewhere, either up for Blackmon with the Browns or down with a team going for Tannehill or a DT/DE. The Jaguars won't have an offensive player worth taking at 7, so moving either up or down in the draft should be the plan. Gabbert needs help on offensive at WR and OL, plus with 10 of the 11 defensive starters coming back next season I'm sure the team is targeting offensive with the 1st round pick.

I don't think it's too likely because the Jets need the picks but I can see them moving up for Melvin Ingram. They do have a history moving up for a guy they like and I know they love Ingram.

What do you think about a team like the Rams moving up for a WR (assuming they don't take one at #6, a DT or OT?

Also, if Dontari Poe falls into the 20's, would the Colts consider moving up to get him?

In 2010 the Jags defense was one of the worst in the league and the offense was decent. In the 2011 draft the Jaguars used their first 4 picks on offensive players.

Gene Smith does his own thing and anytime you think you are sure about what the Jaguars are going to do, it likely means you are wrong.

AJ Smith has been very aggressive in years past. It scares the crap outta me that he's gonna panic and move up for someone like Ingram or Upshaw.

I've actually mocked them moving into the top ten and taking Ingram for a while now. Especially with Manning now in the division, I think AJ will have a strong desire to upgrade his pass rush at all costs.

phlysac 04-12-2012 07:43 PM

Trent Baalke has both the history and ammo to move up if he has a target in mind.

They realistically have less than 5 roster spots available. It would be easy to "pencil in" a minimum of 50 guys already.

Problem is, I am just not sold on Ingram (in OUR defense) to move up like that. There isn't a pass rusher I AM sold on in this draft. Someone like Perry could end up being the best pass rusher..

I agree. I can totally see the Chargers moving up anywhere from 4 to 8 spots to land a player they like.

Pretty much like clockwork there is a team that trades back into the the end of the first. With the pats sitting with picks in that area, it seems that it is even more likey. However if. There is a guy bill is enamored with I could see us moving up. For whom, that is anyones guess.


For the colts, if polian was still there I would say there was no way in hell they trade up for a dt. I don't know enough about the new gm to get a good read.

I like the idea of the rams doing a small move up ala the lions for best if they see a receiver like jeffrey or hill sitting there.

RWills 04-13-2012 09:05 AM

If Brockers or Barron fall past 20 I can see the Pats using a third and the 27 to gets one of those....

if they do this than 31 will be traded down

Smart guy. I didn't even think of the Chargers as a trade up candidate yet. It's like I forgot their GM is an aggressive mofo....Big fan of AJ Smith eek f he's a touch crazy.

The latest rumor is that the Chargers want to move up to 12/13 to land Mark Barron, which, since it came out this week, will almost certainly not happen...haha

But if it does, TV's will be thrown from high placed wherever i may be.

eaglesalltheway 04-24-2012 01:41 PM

I'd bet the Eagles trade up for Poe. I just hope they don't give up too much.

Asteinebach 04-24-2012 01:48 PM

I'd imagine that the trades up are not going to be huge this year. You only have 5 gradable elite players out there. I think you could see Cleveland move up from 22 if Tanny slips. The Jets may go up in pursuit of Melvin Ingram. I think you could see some teams like Minnesota trying to move up into round 1 if there's a top OT still on the board like Cordy Glenn or Riley Reiff.

Aside from that, it's hit or miss. There's not a ton of players in this draft that carry the value of more than any 2 players.

IndyColtScout 04-24-2012 02:13 PM

PHI- for an OL like Reiff
NYJ- Rushbacker or a shot at an elite WR prospect
CIN- Two 1st round picks gives them options if they are in love
CLE- same as CIN
STL- trade for #2 gives them Ammo to move into backend of the 1st

Which 5? Luck, Trent Richardson, DeCastro I give you, but then who?

You can make an argument for RG III, Claibourne, Blackmon, Kuechly, Barron and Kalil. For upside, no one beats Poe.

Tannehill at #9 is an interesting position. KC, Seattle, Dallas, Philly and Cleveland all have reason to bid. The Chiefs could move up for less than a 3rd rounder. Cleveland would need #22, #37 and something. If he is there at #10, I would not put it past Buffalo to take him.

I kind of want to see New England keep their picks or flip the script on everyone and trade up.

WMD 04-24-2012 10:58 PM

I have a feeling the Lions will trade up. Either very high for Trent/Claiborne/Kalil, kinda high for Reiff, or a little bit to make sure they get Barron/Kirkpatrick/Gilmore.

I can't see the Colts trading up for DT. Maybe for Fleener because they need a TE and he is a teammate of Luck who would make the transition easier for him.

I could see this happening. Especially considering the fact that I'm convinced they should deal Cliff Avril. Although, I'd rather see them move up into round 2 for like Courtney Upshaw or Vinny Curry.
