    A few scenerios to consider using the trade value chart (which may or may not still mean anything)

    Bengals get pick 37, pick 234
    Rams get pick 41, pick 153, pick 193

    Browns get pick 37, 112
    Rams get picks 52, 65

    Bucs get 37, 153
    Rams get 50, 84

    Raiders get 37
    Rams get 56, 88, 129

    Of course, it all depends on how picks 1-36 go - and it takes 2 to tango - these teams would need to have someone there at 37 that they like to make these kind of swaps - but these are fairly close to even value.

    I'm all for trading down. The question about how far really depend on who's available. I am apprehensive with trading down to the 50's but again it all depends on who's available.

    With Jones, Conley, and Mareau out there....I'd take the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th option....

    Finally...someone making sense....trading back into the 3rd is rich this year.

    I like option 1, but wouldn't rule out the other 3.

    Well you shouldn't be - Kupp will be the best of those names. But even if you want one of those 3 names, trading down makes sense.

    If GB doesn't take Kizer... maybe we'd be a likely trade target. Every team between them and us doesn't really need him (maybe the Chargers). Regardless, one hopes he goes before us and pushes down a pick.

    I don't see GB taking any QB at that pick.
    They already have Huntley.

    If GB stays at 33, my bet is on a RB. Probably Cool

    I highly disagree.... Kupp is just a slot receiver imo I wouldn't touch him until rd 3 or 4

    Completely agreed. Let the draft fall to you.

    Lamp isn't our END ALL BE ALL.... He wasn't even a real thought until yesterday. He'll get drafted before us and we'll stick to our plan that makes sense for our team...

    Drafting a receiver that can turn into a #1.

    Don't get cute.

    Here's my guess (for the record);

    • I think we trade up if we're going Lamp (not likely).
    • I think we trade down if we're going WR (likely). And then the analysis put together by OP @12intheBox comes into play.
    • If we stay put at 37 I think we go CB (most likely).
    Personally, I'd like to see us trade down and go BPA, with emphasis on OL, CB and WR (in no specific order).
