I have been thinking if Manning Is healthy what I would do with the #1 pick in the draft and it would be to work a trade out with Arizona. I think we could get Fitzgerald, Docket and a first round pick. This would alleviate two of our biggest needs and give us a top ten pick to do with as we please. Lets not forget our 2nd round pick will also be close to our usual first rounder...There is a reason they do not hit on every first rounder.
To me this is the safest route with Manning and we get two impact players for the rest of Manning's career, with the ability to draft another in the 1st round or Manning's backup and QB of the future. I know 50% of the people on this site would like to draft Luck, throw that scenario out completely and think about what teams would give us the most in a short term trade over the next couple years. Be creative lets not discuss Luck at all and decide on what other options are out there if we trade the pick. I am looking at a four year window to win hell think about trading the top ten pick as well.
