    Good year to trade up a few places

    Since we may have an extra compensatory pick or two, I think we should try to move up a few places in the first round to get whoever we really want.

    A 3rd round pick would give us the ability to move up to 26 and swap with the Texans?

    We'll probably going to go with a DE/DT or maybe even a WR.

    I'd actually think about trading down a few spots. The 32 pick is like picking in the 2nd round anyway. May as well save a little money and pick up an extra pick as well.

    Giants don't trade up or down a whole lot usually
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Exactly, there's gonna be a team who has a high second round pick but afraid the player they want will be gone in the next few picks....

    I have been thinking that we gonna trade out of the first, but still stay close maybe move down to 38-40 pick and still get the player we wanted and gain some more picks...

    We don't have a need where we should do that. We would be better served trading down...possibly with someone already carrying 2 round 2 picks. That #32 overall pick becomes super-valuable to teams and even to the drafted player since that player will want 1st round money...even though his value is little better than any of the picked #2's.
    Trading up means we pay even more, for one guy.

    Why? Trade up a few notches for who......the 26th player versus the 32nd.....that is stupid. The Giants are actually more likely to trade down than up.

    We're most likely getting a 5th and possibly a 7th as comp picks.

    Why would I want to trade a 3rd to move up 6 places? For Mercilus Whitney?

    Typically we don't trade up.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    Why would we trade up to draft another WR? You really want your first round pick to be the #3 WR and that sit?
