And I think the math for a team's #2 and #3 for the Bengals #1 also adds up. If the Bengals don't trade back, I think St. Louis at #21 definitely will.
Every team wants to trade down. Not only to get more picks but the lower your pick is the more money you save. Especially in this draft where there is depth but no top dog wouldn't you rather pay a guy picked around 35 who you valued at 21?
I think trading will go the way of Geno Smith. If he slips past the Bills I think he falls and teams will move back up into the 1st to get him in the 20's. If he is taken before the Bills the Bills probably will take Nassib instead of waiting. But if both Smith and Nassib fall the Bengals should be in good position to move.
