Potential Draft Day Trade?

51 posts in this topic

There's a headline on NFL.com that's really interesting right now.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday, citing multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, the Redskins are willing to trade two first-round picks (this year's No. 6 selection and next year's No. 1) in addition to a number of mid- to late-round picks to move up to select Griffin.

...

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also reported Tuesday the Rams have had very preliminary discussions with the Cleveland Browns (pick No. 4 overall), the Miami Dolphins (No. 8) and the Redskins, in addition to a couple of other teams outside of the top 10.

It seems that the Redskins have laid out that they're definitely willing to move up and grab RGIII. Well, we already knew that, didn't we? But, notice that it's St. Louis saying that Cleveland is also involved in the trade, now the Cleveland beat writers, while the Washington Post is saying that Washington is very interested.

This leads me to believe, along with some of the comments that RGIII doesn't really fit Pat Shurmur's West Coast offense as much as he does Shanahan's mobile-QB/Stretch offense, that the Browns may not be willing to deal that much for RGIII, instead, letting Washington take him.

Now, there have been reports that Miami is very interested in Matt Flynn, which leaves Cleveland still needing a QB. We all know that Cleveland wants a quality RB, and Trent Richardson is a guy that they could definitely take at 4. But, how will they get a QB? I think it's very possible that Cleveland could trade their 22nd pick and a 2nd or 3rd rounder to move up to the 9th spot, and take Ryan Tannehill. Reports are that Tannehill could amaze people at his Pro Day, and if he does, then I think this becomes more and more likely.

If we're moving back 13 spots we better be getting a hell of a lot more then a second or third rounder....

There would be more, but I'm not sure what it would be. If we use Cleveland and Atlanta's trade from last year as a reference, Atlanta traded 2011's 1st, 2nd, and 4th and 2012's 1st and 4th, but that was going from 27 to 6.

I don't have the Draft Pick Trade Chart, but I think it would be something similar to that, because moving up to get a QB is always at a premium, and Cleveland would want to do it to make sure that Seattle doesn't nab him at 12.

If you go by the value chart they would have to give up a second next year. However, if the Panthers were approached about doing that trade I would only be moving down that many spots if another first is included....

Reports are that the cap number will be similar to what it is now when the new league year starts.

We can move the 2.8m we're under now to next year's cap, to increase it by that much, which would make us 5.6m under the cap. (2.8m under now, move it to the new league year where we will be another 2.8m under, which makes us 5.6m under.)

A couple of restructures/extending contracts, and we would easily be 12-14m under the cap by the time Free Agency starts.

I know people throw out that smokescreen joke a lot around here, but putting out what you are willing to give up to move to a very desirable draft position 2 months ahead of time isn't normal. The ol' Shanahan smokescreen I say. I think they either sign Peyton or just take Tannehill at the 6. The Browns are in a much better position to get that pick if they want it.

This team needs some elite talent, im not for moving WAY down the first round. We might not be picking this high again for a while, im hoping we get somebody that can make the kinda impact Cam did on the defensive side of the ball this year. Dont really see anybody like that at the bottom of the first round. I would only listen if a team throws in some first rounders to move.

Fletcher Cox, Jerel Worthy, Janoris Jenkins, Chandler Jones, and Zach Brown could all potentially be there.

    • LOL. Well neither do you man- you're haphazardly speculating at best. I have vastly more evidence that Pryor would not be the starter and Mike Adams would First off: Mike Adams is better.  Second: Clearly the Panthers wanted Adams, probably going to start the guy they wanted.  Third: Mike Adams is a veteran presence just like the last successful guy to start at SS was for us: Harper: who would still be here if he had any gas left in the tank. The front office and coaches loved that veteran leadership he provided. Harper was starting games he had no business too- because our coaches loved how he positively helped our team. Guess who that replacement veteran leader is: Mike Adams.  Four: Calvin Pryor has been so bad the Jets are willing to give him up for "anything" and drafted safeties with their first and second round picks. That does not sound like the kind of guy that's out beating a consecutive Pro Bowl player.  Five: We already have a project safety on our team: Tre Boston   If you give up anything Pryor you have no idea how negotiations work in the first place. Jet's have no leverage here. Pryor is likely getting cut. 
    • blah blah blah our best WR who averages a 1,000 yards per season is a fat arse..trade him A.S.A.P.! Swole Bones is going be a future HOF TE...just give him one more year to develop? huddle logic :)
