Deangelo as draft bait?

43 posts in this topic

Does it make any sense for Gettleman to bundle Deangelo with our first round pick to move back and pick up an extra pick later in the draft? Or just outright trade him for a pick? I know he is a cap hit even if we were to get rid of him, but RR doesnt seem too fond of him, and Tyrone Poole should be back and looked pretty studly the little we saw of him last year.

I have to believe that gettleman with his 25 years thinking about what he would do as a gm has some moves up his sleeve.

Deangelo averaged around 3.5 ypc before the Saints game (which had the worst run D in the league). Scouts described DeAngelo as someone who lost quickness and speed. No one in their right mind will trade for Williams.

ANY player who is going to be traded during the draft, will HAVE to have a physical by the acquiring team prior to the trade. So, if you don't hear of any players taking a physical this week, there won't be any player trades during the draft.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
