Heck no.

In this draft, we need more picks, not less.

Still too early to make any decisions either way. First let Free agency play out, then go from there. The last days before the draft is the best time to answer that question.

Just making the point that it is still before free agency, which will determine what position we draft.

OK I'll play. Would I trade the Falc's first,3rd and another pick to move up to 13-14.Only if Derrick Morgan is available or Joe Haden . Graham I have some reservations about however if he dropped to say 17 I would trade up.All this is predicated the Falcon's didn't upgrade in free agency at one or the other position.

There does seems to be quite a drop after Haden and Morgan although Graham as some possibilities of doing good.I am trying to be a realist and don't expect a trade however trading down wouldn't be a bad option if we could recoup a 2nd rounder.
Sometimes running the Mularkey offense makes me feel like I'm in a prison.

If we're going to give up a 1st and 3rd to draft a CB, I'd sooner pull the trigger with the Raiders to pick up the best CB in the NFL.
