Because only one guy that I like is on your at the right spot.

If we get our second rounder back I'm hopeful Lane Johnson can be had at pick #42

And you've cited our reason for trading Ivory is that he just cant stay healthy.

So who in their right mind gives up a third round selection for a guy who cant stay on the field?

There's no way the Lane Johnson last til the 2nd. Ivory when healthy has shined but there's a reason he didn't play early in the year. His punishing running style is hard on his body. It's not major injuries but 1-2 games missed at a time. I think with the lack of RB depth in the draft a 3rd could be had.

We won't get a compensatory pick. I've seen multiple predictions and we were given 0 in all of them.

Not sure why the hate on the mock here considering he explained we lost Bushrod in his mock "offseason". This is a very likely scenario in the case we do not replace Bushrod in FA, that is the key here. If you honestly think we are going to pull a starter to protect Brees' blindside in the later rounds, I think you are reaching to say the least. While I understand everyone wants the flashy pass rusher (Count me in that group), we have to look at the tackle position realistically. I for one hope it is solved prior to the draft and knowing Loomis and the fact that he doesn't like to go into a draft being forced to fill a need I see us at least signing one of the FA LT's even if its not one of the top guys out there.

There is plenty of RB depth in the draft, there just aren't any sure fire top 10 type RBs.

If we could get a 3rd for Ivory we would have done it a long time ago. It is a lot easier to get a good draft pick for a player before the trade deadline than it is just before free agency and the draft because if a team needs a RB they can get one.
