Trade up in First Round? I sense we just might do so

From what I know we own the following picks in this draft (7 Total) - #9, #40, #73, #103, #140, #171, #210

The following are the requirements needed to trade up through the 7th Pick according to Draftcountdown.com's trade value chart (although I doubt a team would require picks from all rounds for the top pick in reality):

  1. Picks alone wouldn't be enough, even all of our picks
  2. Same as #1
  3. All Draft Picks
  4. Picks #9 & #40
  5. #9 & #40
  6. #9, #73, #140
  7. #9 & #73 (with an additional pick in return, probably a 4th round pick)

I feel the need to say that I don't see us making a move unless it is to the 4th overall pick at the highest anyway.  It would just be too costly to go any higher than that.

I would love to see Patrick Peterson in a Cowboys Uniform, but he would need to fall to the Bengals (#4) to be able to do that.  This draft is looking like it could go any way, but it looks like there are some players that could definitely go ahead of him.  Fairley, Quinn, Bowers, and Green could all very well go ahead of him from what Mike Mayock has said on NFL Total Access, as well as other analysts on the show and various rankings online.

For strict reasons of curiosity alone I wanted to poll my fellow BTB people.  So lets see what you think BTB Nation.
