I am inclined to trade up at this point and get Pouncey.  I believe that he will be gone by 1.25.  If we cannot find a dance partner I say we trade down and pick up some extra picks.

Two things.

We pick at 1.31, not 1.25.

Also, unless a new CBA is in place, players cannot be traded, only picks for other picks.  That limits both trading parties.

Third thing is, much as I like Pouncey, I think we'll find value without trading up.  Plenty of good players at 1.31 IMO.

I like the idea of standing pat and taking the BAA, but when they've traded up, they've generally been spot-on with the pick.  I don't like the idea of trading down in the first round unless your target is gone or is likely available later.

So, stand pat, unless.

I know we pick at 1.31.  My observation was that he is rated, from what I have read, to go around 1.25.

Wel, quite some variance in were he's projected to go (1c-2a, generally).

How's that old Jim Croce song go?  You don't tug on superman's cape, you don't piss into the wind, you do NOT fuck with Finny about the draft?
