    As mostly everyone said, there's no reason to. A lot of players look the same to me in this draft. No one is extremely exciting or more superior to anyone else other than the top 2 QB's. A lot of the DE's are interchangeable scheme wise. The DT's are a lot like the DE's, a lot to chose from depending on the scheme. The CB's are up and down. Not much as far as 4-3 LB's in the 1st. Interior OL is great at the top, but very slim. Safety is like Interior OL super slim at the top. WR ..... we just need to get off that right now. No need to take one in the 1st.

    The only 2 players I would want to trade up for would be DeCastro or Barron, which both could fall to us, but it's very unlikely.

    No one has mentioned Luke Kuechly in this thread. If we were to trade up I would want him over any other option.

    The only guy I'd trade up for in this draft is Fletcher Cox but even he is not THAT much better then Devin Still (my #2 DT in this draft).Though this draft doesn't have many people that I think will be stars there is a lot of depth in the areas we need.

    We need all the picks we can get. Too many holes to fill as of now. If we were just missing one key position, yea I can consider moving up getting that certain player.

    If the 15th pick rolls around and DeCastro or Kuechly then I would definitely consider moving up to get one of them. BUT I don't really see us doing that.

    I don't think the players available at 10-15 are dramatically better than the ones that will be there at 20.

    The only players I could see them trading up a few spots for are Floyd, Barron, and DeCastro. But honestly, I don't see them giving up picks for that. Just take the BPA @ 20.

    While DeCastro would be my top choice I would still look at Mark Barron, Quinton Coples, and Kendall Wright.

    I think we should either stay at our current spot or trade down if possible. I just don't see it being worth it with our current needs and this years draft class. If we have to package any future picks into trading up we could very well be giving up rather high draft picks next year with how rough our schedule looks. I like to think that if not this season, the following season we are going to be contenders. So lets not try to get ahead of ourselves and sabotage next years draft.
