Trading Down for Wallace?

I saw somebody post this idea in regards to the Jaguars in another post, so I wanted to elaborate on it. I know many of us want Ingram with the first pick, but there is a possibility that he will not be there by the time our pick comes around.

If this happens, what do you guys think about a scenario like this?

Trade down in the first round with teams like Packers, Ravens, or 49ers (picks 28-30). We then get an extra 2nd round pick, and should possibly be able to squeeze an extra 3rd round pick out of it. We could even throw in a 5th round pick to give away. This is not so far fetched. According to Draftcountdown.com, if we completed this trade with the 49ers, we'd be giving up a 1,034 pick value for a 1,028 pick value in return. If we want to keep our 5th round pick, we could possibly put Eric Smith in the trade, opening up another 2 million in cap space.

This would leave us with the following picks in the first three rounds:

1st round: pick 30

2nd round: picks 16 and 30

3rd round: picks 16 and 30

We then sign Wallace with the first round pick.

2nd round we can pick up a pass rusher, and Massie, who is an OT.

3rd round we can pick up George Iloka at safety and Robert Turbin at running back.

so our draft up to that point would be:

Wallace, Pass rusher, Massie, Iloka and Turbin. I don't know about you, but I think that would be an amazing start to the draft.

One problem? Wallace is going to command a big contract. However, if we get rid of Smith, we will have an extra 2 million dollars in cap space. According to NYJetscap, we currently have $7,567,441 in cap space. If we add the extra 2 million, we now have $9,567,441 in cap. Maybe we could even look into restructuring Bart Scott or Calvin Pace a little bit. But, with $9,567,441 in cap space, we should be able to sign Wallace as well as our draft picks.

It'd take a lot of work to make this happen, but It's a possibility that is interesting to look into.
