I voted trade back.

Stockpile more 1st and 2nd round picks over the next 2 drafts (prefer them in this year's draft) and then pick the best available OT with whatever pick we end up sticking with.

Pick OLB[RUSH] in the 2nd round along with other picks if we have them from trade (ILB, OG are top of my list after OLB).

We have a lot of holes to fill. Getting one stud is nice if he works out. Getting a shot at 3 or 4 studs is even better even if their ceiling is lower than the kid picked at #3.

Walk Worthy,

Walk Worthy,
That would be nice, but I don't think the offers will be there. They blew their chance by missing out on the 2nd pick.

If the 1st two picks are Rosen/Darnold, would you really offer that kind of package to move up to #3 as an opposing GM?

I still say if Chubb is still there, you have to take him.
Jests, Denver and maybe Miami may be in the market for a QB and our pick.

As for who, Chubb seems to be the hot name right now, and I like the consistent production in a power conference. I've also heard some still believe Key is the best pass rusher in this draft, though he missed a decent amount of time this year and wasn't incredibly productive in the time he played.
I forget the name, but Georgia has a really good LB that I'd like to see. Not in the first round, though

Roquan Smith, but he'll go in the 1st round, possibly the first half of the 1st round it appears.

I'd definitely be very interested if we trade back.

I voted for Chubb, barring a block buster trade, at least two 1's and a couple 2's
I wouldn't mind that RB from Louisiana in a later round
Kid has heart

Pointless to discuss too much at this point in time, need to wait until free agency has started and what positions we have addressed.

I personally think that Chubb is the most likely pick if we stay at No. 3 as it is easier to find a decent guard in free agency than a true pass rushing threat. I also think that Barkley will end up being great, but not with the current offensive line. We HAVE to address the offensive line to enable proper production from our offense, both from a rushing and passing standpoint.

I am ok with Castonzo, Kelly, Haeg and Good, along with Clark, Person and probably Bond as a group of guys to be added to. There are probably 3 guys who are going to be acceptable as starters, but there needs to be a big injection of talent to the starting line.

At the very least you have to explore trading back.

You have a top 3 pick and there are several potential franchise QBs that teams will be considering trading up for, so you have to at least ask.

Now will the price and moving down be worth it? I don't know. But the first thing you do with this pick is see if you can turn it into more. It has the potential to be the type of trade that can be used to turn around a franchise with a big haul.

If its not traded and the 3rd pick is used I would be OK with Chudd or Nelson.

No to a RB at this spot no matter how good they might be.

I would trade back all day and every day.

Hopefully a team desperate for a QB does it.

Unless it looks like the Colts will need one, which I'm really hoping isn't the case (and don't think it will be).

I also have the suspicion that Irsay will push for Barkley hard as well, and I'm sorta resigning myself to that pick.

I am with you on Chubb or Nelson. I know some say you can't draft a guard that high, but if it solves a huge problem, then so be it.

Further, I would prefer to not go RB in the first round, hoping for Gore to go one more year, but if Gore leaves, then we'll have to "do something, Grigs!:
