Draft 2016

After we trade back at least twice in the first round if possible for reasonable additional picks.
I think the difference between the top 5 or so players in this draft compared to the 10-20 range makes it a good idea only to move down a couple of slots if at all.

If we land inside the top 5, I'd only move down if it's a can't miss offer, or if we are talking about moving down only 1 or 2 spots.

Just take Joey Bosa and call it a day. This team NEEDS blue chip talent. No trade downs, no trade ups, just trust your scouting and pick the next great Charger player.

Yeah, I see it differently because 1) I see virtually no difference at all between the top rated players and the players rated in the second half of the first round as I see this as an amazingly weak draft class at the top, and 2) we have many, many holes on the roster.

If I observed a large gap between the top rated players and those immediately below them and thought there was some kind of once in a decade player available to us, then I might reconsider my position. But I understand your position in light of your observations about the available players.

Agree on some of that, it isn't a draft where there is a sure-fire number 1, but there are some good players (e.g. Ramsey, Bosa, Tunsil, Stanley, Hargreaves) that you will see a big drop off after down to the next available guy if you're moving out of the top 10, and this team does need a high-ceiling blue chip talent to come in as much as it needs depth.

I guess a lot of any discussion to trade down ultimately comes down to what the offer is.

Wouldn't mind trading back 2-3 spots, taking the best offensive trench player available and then if Nkemdiche drops significantly into the late 20's in the draft after all that is surrounding him, I wouldn't mind a trade back into the 1st round. You may be getting top talent in the trenches, but this is all speculation, a lot can and will happen between now and May.
