ItsNotGonnaBeAlright

How does this sound?

Recommended Posts

Haven't been around, so I don't know what possibilities have been talked to death around here in the boredom until the offseason. But this one crossed my head today and I thought I'd see if held any water.

If we wind up with the #1 overall pick, how about trading to Denver for the #6 overall and one of their two 2nd round picks (probably #49 overall). We'd lose out on Luck, but it gives us more options in rebuilding. Denver gets Luck, so that's a win for them and their new coaching staff.

I doubt it would happen, but its fun to guess.

What say ye to my insanity?

What exactly do you think you will get with the #6 pick? Who do you think is going to be there that is worth passing on Luck for?

I would not be surprised to see Newton go 2nd, especially if the Bengals are there.

Yeah, doesn't really benefit us. They have Orton and The Golden Calf of Bristol (who has potential to be a starter, or at least contribute). We need Luck a lot more than they do.

I would like to point out though, that I've thought about this scenario - What if Luck doesn't come out (which I think he will) and we don't take Newton...

What if we traded down and took Patrick Peterson or Prince Amukamara (I prefer Peterson) - the CB and picked up some extra picks along the way. Imagine Peterson, Gamble, and Munnerlyn as our top 3 CBs next year. We should get 2,000 coverage sacks.

Although I want the Luck scenario to pan out first and foremost. But, if we can't/don't get Luck or Newton, this wouldn't be a bad alternative scenario IMO

There's always talk about trading the #1 overall. I can't see us doing so unless its to a team with an extra 2nd rounder to burn and a need at QB. That gives us New England and Denver as potential trading partners. Orton is probably on the outs, and a new coach in Denver won't show The Golden Calf of Bristol any favors. Hence my reasoning for picking them. Hell, we could probably get both second rounders and a couple of other future picks for the prospect of drafting Luck.

I agree with the idea that you don't trade away the chance to pick up a franchise QB. But we're gonna see plenty of this crap until the draft, might as well start it here.
