Angelo has never traded up that I know of.  To me it would be a shock to see that happen.

Didn't he trade up a couple spots to get Grossman?

Indeed he did trade up into the 1st round to get Grossman...  who on every other team's board was no more than a mid-2nd round value.

Smooth move.

I think he traded down from #4 with NYJ to get #14 and #22.
He took Haynes at 14 and Gross at 22.

I think he has traded up in later rounds, I think Justin Gage.
I think in the early rounds he feels like it costs too much and I usually agree.

If giving up a 3rd rounder this year will let us protect Cutler's blind side then pay the man.

The way I see it, if we're giving up our 3rd to move up a few spots for a LT, we're taking the position that our OL is only one player away...  and that that player is a LT.  Clearly that is not the case with our OL.  Not to mention that there is hardly a consensus opinion that Costanza will step in from Day One as a team's starting LT and in fact there are plenty of opinions out there to the contrary.

Seems to me taking best available OT with our 1st round pick and then using our 3rd round pick on an interior OL is the more sensible solution.

And the guy that NYJ got @ #4 was a bust too right?

Angelo has had 1st-round picks in the top 5 (Cedric Ben$on), mid-round (Haynes, Chris Williams, Grossman) and the bottom (Greg Olsen, Marc Colombo).  Out of all those, only Olsen has come close to returning value and even he is taking his sweet time. 

No matter where you put Angelo in the 1st round he is pretty much inept which I'm sure is a big reason the McCaskey's green-lighted the Cutler trade.

 Yeah...convince angelo to go OT-DT-OG in the first three.

 If by some outside chance that happens...what to do with the bottom 3?

 WR? DB? ??? Toubs gotta get his two cents in there somwhere.

 I wonder if Toub still has the same kind of muscle with Marinelli,Tice, and Martz on board?

If Angelo goes OT,DT,OG in the first three, he could go OT,DT,OG in the last 3 just to hedge his bets :-)

Angelo will take a LB in those bottom 3 rounds somewhere. Bet on it. If for no other reason than STs. And probably a CB or S too, for the same reason.

True...he grabs a LB nearly every draft it seems.  This might be a year to start looking for a guy for the middle.  This is Urlacher's 10th or 11th year coming up, right?
