    My friend was talking about an interesting trade idea for our team. Matt Cassell will probably be traded when (and if) Brady comes back in time to be there for summer workouts. If that is the case, what about we trade our 1st pick to NE for Cassel and their 1st round pick, and maybe a day 2 pick.

    Essentially, with the draft value charts we would be using the equivalent of a mid-round pick on Cassel. We could use our 1st and second rounders to either move back down into the mid-early first to Maualuga, or Duke Robinson. Or we use NE 1st for Mack and our 2nd for Herman Johnson or Loadholt.

    That would give us an O-line with:
    Loadholt/Waters/Mack/Niswanger/Albert
    (Albert and Loadholt could be switched around)
    or
    Albert/Waters/Niswanger/Robinson/??? + Maualuga

    Our O-line would be set, and we would have a pretty decent QB, and maybe our franchise LB.

    Personally I like Thigpen, and Im not super impressed with Cassel, and I doubt NE would want to trade for a top 5 pick. That being said, what do you guys think?

    Fixed.

    Cassel has great receivers. But it's the scheme and o-line that made him successful.

    Look at the Cards this year. Why are they so successful this year as opposed to their previous ones when they had Warner/Boldin/Fitz/Edge? Because the Cards changed their scheme (Haley) and because they upgraded their OL.

    I, like everyone else, have been guilty of wanting a sexy pick in the 1st round (Crabtree, Maualuga, Curry, etc.), but a blind man could see that upgrading our OL is the only way to success.

    I think one or two would be plenty. Hell, just run it on one side.

    When we had Roaf and Shields, how often did we run right?

    I know what you're sayin'. I just can't see fixing half the problem...We really need to solidify the entire OL. These continual 3 and outs arn't gonna win us many games...

    But we can fix our OL through the draft. We probably can't fix the defense. We have enough young guys underachieving on our front seven.

    Tell the truth, without a massive FA binge on defense, I don't see it getting fixed for 3-4 years, no matter how well we draft.

    Yeah. This entire roster needs rebuilt (again). But I think Pioli will build our lines 1st - then go outside...
