  • I have ALOT of issues with this trading up for pick #7. First of all I don't see Dion Jordan getting past the Eagles at pick #4. In the lead up to the 2013 NFL Draft, Jordan's stock has continued to rise to the point that he is a consensus projection to be a top-five pick. If they were to trade up, I would hope it would be for Dee Milliner - CB - Alabama.
