The Plan

I want Jadeveon Clowney.  He’s the best player in the draft and would immediately be a game changer for my defense.  I’m going to trade my first round pick, my second round pick, and a first round pick for 2015 to move to the second spot and select Jadeveon Clowney.  I have a solid, proven answer for most positions on my team, so I might be able to pick up what we need after this season in the second round of next year’s draft. With some money carried over due to my savings, I could sign even more free agents.  I’d be picking up the biggest stud in the draft without having to sacrifice any other position of need.  I could spend the rest of the draft on depth and projects.

However, the Texans might want to pick Clowney up with the first overall pick leaving me with no reason to spend any draft picks.  That’s an easy answer; I’ll pick up Khalil Mack.  He can be a defensive end or an outside linebacker.  He’s the perfect fit for a versatile defense and will be an impact player from day one.  With the second round pick I didn’t spend, I could bolster the offensive line with a center or a left tackle to back up Baker.  If there’s one thing we have learned, it’s the fact that you can never have too much depth on the lines.
