NO. This is a terrible idea. If there is no one worth taking at 10, then there is absolutely no one worth wasting a FUTURE 1st rd pick on to trade up. We need MORE picks, not less. 

The smart approach is not to trade up but to trade down. What I would advocate is to trade down and select a qb, and then use the extra pick or two to hedge your selection. Whaley has too often gratuitously given up picks to move up for a player he coveted, such as the Watkins deal. That was done in a draft rich with receivers. It was also done in moving up to get Ragland, giving up a pick that could have been used for Prescott. Instead Whaley selected Cardale over the qb he rated higher. (At least that is what was rumored?)

Nope, I'm all set with trading up back into the first round for a QB. If he's not worth it at 10 he's probably not worth it in the first round (for QB's). I'd like to see us get more versatile and draft OJ Howard, a CB or a WR. Definitely wouldn't mind grabbing a QB in the second.

Which is why spending multiple picks on any one player is foolish.

Very few, if any QBs have worked out when it involved more than one pick. I.e. trading up or back into the first.
