I would trade down to 11-13 range, pick up an extra 2nd and take Girgensons/Collberg/Gaunce there. I'd be happy with that.

If we are already sitting in the 11-14 spot, like I think we will be, I'd have to wait and see what's left on the board at that point.
I disagree with the idea of trading down, id rather take the high end dmen if thats whats on the board. Even if our defense is a strength right now it may not be in 3 to 4 years when the pick is likely to play.
