40 days til the draft...let's generate some discussion...What would it take to trade up to take DE Myles Garrett?
Different scenarios include trading up with Cleveland or, if Cleveland maybe takes a QB, trading up to the #2 or #3 spots.
Cleveland has a bunch of high picks this year and next so why would they want more. This could be a problem unless we had a player we could tempt them with.
SF and Chicago could also use QBs so maybe we're talking about trading up to the top 5.
If we somehow managed to swing for the fences while Eli still has a few years left, re-established the pass rush, protected ourselves against JPP not performing, and possibly creating a shut down defense, we wouldn't need that many more pieces on offense to push this team over the hump.
What would it cost and would you do it? Would you play the hit-a-home-run-or-strike-out game or okay it safe and add 7 more players via the draft?
yet you would literally have to give up all of this year's draft, next year's entire draft, and that still probably wouldn't be enough to get the top pick.
Cleveland does not need more picks.....Not sure they will jump on any of my players
OBJ . . . (tongue planted firmly in cheek)
But if I were Cleveland, I would say
Give me Okwara, Andrew Adams, Sterling Shepard, 1st round and 2nd round both this year and next year...
I wouldn't do it, obviously, if I were the Giants but I would if I were Cleveland...
Worth what it would take to jump from 23 to 1

Why would you give up OBJ?
Because we don't have enough money invested in the DE position?
mortgage the youth of your future for ONE player who basically would be second to 2 superb DE's. Brilliant.
Ditka traded all his 1999 draft picks and first round draft pick in 2000 the Redskins to move up in the draft and select Texas RB Ricky Williams.
A stroke of genius...for the 'Skins.
About a week or so ago someone suggested trading JPP for the Brown's left tackle (can't remember his name). I remember thinking that the only way I'd trade JPP for anyone would be for the left tackle and their first first round pick (wouldn't happen). JPP is a known quantity probably just about to hit his real prime (if he can stay healthy), even if Garret is the real deal he may end up like Clowney and have to acclimatize for a year or three. JPP would very much be worth two in the bush, IMHO (won't happen).
Eli and JPP for all of Cleveland's 1's and 2's....
Never happen but for shits It would be slightly more realistic or doable to consider trading up to top ten. Maybe if there was a blue goose LT or whatever position tickled the Giants fancy. I'd consider going balls out for any player if he was deemed worthwhile. First pick overall? From where the Giants sit at 23? So costly just not worth it unless it was for the qb which obviously isn't happening this year. But moving to 15 for say OJ Howard or Williams (we have WRs) or some other pass rusher ? Or even a LT or rb... as long as the player ends up awesome fine with me.
I'll go out on a limb and predict that the Giants do in fact trade up -- maybe in round 2, like they did for Collins. Thing is some positons are so deep there might not be a need to trade up in this draft, just stand pat and take the corner or rb in round 2. There will be a some there worth taking.
Maybe round 1 sees the Giants trade up for the TE. I don't think they trade up for a rb or ol. Passrusher? Doesn't seem to be likely.
