Personally, I see Kinlaw's draft stock continually rising. If we trade back from 13, I don't expect him to last but a couple picks at most. If we trade back at all in this draft I hope it would only be because the QB we want isn't available at 13 and we don't like anyone else after that. then we consider trading back and getting ammunition for next year. Even then I don't feel thrilled by that. Kinlaw is very worthy of the 13th pick and he won't last long after imo.
With the Senior Bowl practices underway it feels like draft season is kicking off. It's only taken one day to further fuel speculation that the Colts may need to trade up to get Herbert or Love. So I ask two questions: Who do we trade up to? and What do we have to give up?
The problem is that you have the Dolphins at 5, Chargers at 6, Panthers at 7, and Raiders at 12 all as very potential candidates to take a QB. Obviously free agency may help thin the herd, but from the early look of things, even trading up to No. 8 with the Cards doesn't even seem safe. So then who do we go up with? The Lions? The Giants? The price gets a lot steeper the further you go up. So what are you as fans willing to give up?
As a fan, I'm currently in the camp of not moving up for either, but if the team loves one, then do what you have to do.
