Umenyiora available for the right price (updated)

Maybe saving those draft picks isn't such a bad idea after all. Another trade rumor making the rounds is that the Giants will make DL Osi Umenyiora available if they draft South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul with their first round pick. I don't need to remind you about the connection between St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo and Umenyiora, who thrived in Spags' defense. 

This report at Rotoworld says it could be as little as a mid-round pick. Is fourth round "mid" enough? How about a fifth round? 

Umenyiora is just 28, and though he's coming off a mediocre season, he picked up 13 sacks in 2007. He missed 2008 with a knee injury. 

This draft is going to feature lots of twists and turns with all the trades that could happen. 

[Note by VanRam, 04/19/10 5:30 PM EDT ] The Rams were interested in Umenyiora back in February when trade talk first surfaced.
