Default If ______ isn't available, trade down...

With all the talk of trading down with our pick of the first round, I thought it would be interesting to see who we all think is worth the 28th pick and if they aren't available, then you would want us actively to look to trade down so we get good value for our pick.

Let's start with the following 15 players definately being picked before 28...

Luke Joeckel
Geno Smith
Sharrif Floyd
Dee Milliner
Chance Warmack
Star Lotulelei
Dion Jordan
Ziggy Ansah
Lane Johnson
Jarvis Jones
Sheldon Richardson
Erik Fisher
Jonathan Cooper
Barkevious Mingo
Tavon Austin

Then for me, (in order of preference) if

Xavier Rhodes
Marcus Trufant
Damontre Moore
Datone Jones
Kenny Vaccaro
Bjoern Warner

aren't available, then I want us to trade down.

Who you got??

Nope. That's about it! If they're all gone, trade down I say!

With that being said, I'll go on record right now to say that I think we'll be picking at 28 or sooner!!

Good thread idea btw

For the most part, I agree with your first 15 players (although Geno Smith could be a surprise slider) -- so, beyond those 15, here's who I would draft at #28 (in order of preference):

Sylvester Williams
Kawann Short
Desmond Trufant
Datone Jones
Tyler Eifert
Tank Carradine
Eric Reid
Margus Hunt
Bjoernn Werner

Once Werner was off the board, I would definitely try to pull back about 10 to 15 picks.

i see no reason to trade down. the value at #28 will be great either way. now if a team badly wants a QB and they'll give us a 2nd and a 3rd or 4th then maybe you do it.

Pretty good except for Geno Smith. If he's there at 28, trade away.

Problem is, if smith is there at 28 he'll be there all the way until rnd 2. Qb needy teams know they can wait beyond 28 and still get him

Indy at #24 looks like the hot spot for teams wanting to trade up according to NFLN

I just played the firstpick draft game 12 times. These were the only guys that never fell to 28. Here's their range.
  1. Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon, 1-3
  2. Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M, 1-4
  3. Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan, 1-5
  4. Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama, 3-6
  5. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young, 1-10
  6. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida, 1-17
  7. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia, 8-13
  8. Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU, 3-17
  9. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State, 6-24
  10. Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia, 5-23
  11. Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma, 5-19
  12. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee, 8-27
  13. Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State, 7-26
  14. Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina, 10-27

Chance Warmack and Star only fell that far once. Sheldon Richardson rarely fell.
