Trading down from #9 to the low teens to grab an extra second

I like this idea because it let's us plug more holes in what is essentially a rebuilding year. We could get that keystone NT that our 3-4 defense needs to work, as well as an OLB compliment before we even hit round 3. Plus, a certain unmentionable QB becomes available  in the late first without us reaching for him (and who knows, Clausen might still be around).

According to ESPN's draft value chart, we could score a low teen pick in the first and second rounds for the value of our #9 (1350). Picks #18 and #50 equal 1300, for instance. Also, the value of a 3rd and 4th is roughly a little less than the value of a 2nd, all draft position being equal. Looking at the 2010 draft order, New York, San Fransisco, and Pittsburgh all offer value close enough to our first round for their first and seconds. I guess the question is, do you think any of these teams might go for it? If Clausen, Spiller, Bulaga, McClain and Berry are all there at #9, would anybody pull the trigger and trade with Buffalo to get their man?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
