Yeah I agree. They already have 5 picks, two firsts and three seconds. Even if they don't like what's left at either of their first round picks this year, they could trade them for firsts in 2015. Especially if someone like Parker goes back to school.

They need to draft at least one player in the first round regardless of where those two picks pan out, but if they miss out on the top 3-5 for some reason, it wouldn't hurt to wait and see for the following year. Let's face it, this team needs to be a bottom 5 team for at least two years to be able to rebuild properly.
