and no 4th round pick.

Playing the draft game on fanspeak is painful to say the least.

1 (late) second round pick
1 (late) fifth round pick
1 (early-ish) and 1 (late) sixth round pick
1 (late) seventh round pick

Basically, we get to add player with promise to groom. With an outside chance that one of our late round picks will make the cut and another make our practice squad.

BTW, I took TE Jace Sternberger (tA&M) with pick #62... but I'd rather trade back and pick draft TE Genter (mich) and somehow pick up another player with potential to make our team.

Anyone have any clue on how we’re going to get any of our picks back ? The only player I can see is maybe peat ?

I'd hate to lose Peat. I like Peat, but I know by trading him we would get a decent pick and open up a half decent amount of cap space.

most likely way is trading next year's 2nd to get a mid-third round pick. Or God forbid... next year's 1st round pick for a 2nd round pick this season.

Please let it be that he finally found some compromising photos of Goodell.

Remember the year we didn't have a 1st or a 2nd and had to wait till round 3 to get Akim Hicks. That was a hard draft to get excited about.

yeah, you're not wrong. I'm not sure we're going to trade anyone, but on paper Peat makes the most cap sense. 0 dead money left, 9.6M cap savings, worth a decent bit. He's a good guard. I don't know how much the team values him, or if he really wants to be a tackle. Of course, with how Armstead has issues finishing a season, having a guy who can play guard and tackle is important.

The only other players that make sense to trade, on a cap basis, are Eli Apple (I heavily doubt we'd trade him) with a 0 dead money hit and 2.5M cap savings, AJ Klein (again doubtful, mostly due to I don't think we'd get much for him) 2M dead money, but 4M cap savings...

Otherwise, we'd be trading young talent, which would be monumentally stupid. Michael Thomas (probably a move that would cause the fan base to turn their anger towards the team), Taysom Hill, Onyemata (of course, he may have just killed his draft value, and we need him with Rankins hurt).

Explain how trading Peat helps us to me please.

Sure we get a draft pick but we would have to turn around and use it on another unproven guard. I have not seen enough out of our stable of linemen to assure us of another starter. It would make more sense to trade Armstead since he is constantly missing games being injured. We would still have to draft a starting tackle but we might get one who can play 19 games.

Unless we’re ready to give up a playmaker, we do not have anyone on our roster who would warrant a pick higher then a fourth round.
