Alternate Draft Strategy - Day Two Dominance!

Lots of talk about trading up, lots of talk about trading down. How about both? How about if we trade down from #30 and up from rounds 4, 5, and 7 to completely dominate DAY TWO of the NFL Draft? The following scenario has us with (7) picks in rounds 2-3 and two late picks in the seventh. It all seems plausible to me.

I like this strategy because it provides us starter-quality depth at every weak position we have. As FA eats away at us, we have guys that can step up. Also, Iron sharpens iron. thoughts?

* Note: Please avoid nitpicking over whether the player will be available at this spot or that spot. I based selections on the CBS Big Board and took players near their overall ranking.

Trade #1. 30 for 48, 79 (BAL); Ravens Select OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama with pick. Drafted WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State, at #17

Trade #2: 79, 129, 170, 242, 243 for 66, 217 (WAS)

Round Pick (overall) Name Pos School Comments
2 48 WR Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss Athletic Freak, better hands than people assume. All-world potential. Return ability/ST
2 56 Marcus Smith DE/OLB Louisville Beast! More ammo at OLB
2 61 Phillip Gaines CB Rice Potential to be elite, needs work
3 66 Deone Bucannon SS Washington State Plays a little bit like Goldson. good depth, can play both positions, special teams. Bethea gets expensive
3 77 Martavis Bryant WR Clemson High Ceiling, Return Ability, Big Red Zone Target, Raw.
3 94 Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB/S Nebraska Huge, physical corner. Tons of potential. "Doesn't seem to get it" at times thought
3 100 Justin Ellis NT Louisiana Tech size and strength to be a two-gap NT
7 217 Blake Annen TE Cincinatti good receiving ability
7 245 Jon Urschel OG Penn State depth pick
