Would you give up picks to move to the top spot in the fourth round?

These point values are derived from this chart.

If we give up some of our draft picks, such as a 4th a 5th and a 6th, we could move up to the first pick tomorrow. It has been hard to see defensive backs fall and get taken in this draft when we obviously need someone to hold the unit together if Troy is injured again. According to the board at NFL.com, cornerbacks Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Dominique Franks, and Donovan Warren are not only the top remaining Defensive Backs, they are rated the top three of all players remaining. In addition, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah obviously has the coolest name left on the draft board (possibly has since Suh was drafted). Do you have to, have to have him?

Remember that we have our untradeable compensatory picks, so there's not really a concern of not getting enough players.

I personally would prefer a safety to a corner, but on NFL.com the remaining safeties are rated much lower than the corners.

Math follows.

 

 

Rams Pick 99th overall = 104 pts

Steelers' remaining tradeable picks:

4th round 116th overall = 62

5th round 151st overall = 31

5th round 155th overall = 29

6th round 188th overall = 16.2

4th+5th+6th = 107.2 pts or 109.2 pts (a little more than the 1st pick of the 4th round, owned by the Rams)

4th+5th = 91 or 93 pts (equivalent to the 4th pick of the 4th round, owned by the Texans)

4th+5th+5th = 122 pts (exceeds any single pick on the board, but if we really want someone we may need to outbid for the Rams' 4th rounder)

5th+5th+6th = 76 pts (equivalent to 109th overall, the pick-starved Bears with the 11th pick of the 4th round)

4th+6th = 78.2 pts (equivalent to the 10th pick in the 4th round, owned by the Jaguars)
