High draft pick..take advantage of it


Recommended Posts

How many times will a young team on the upswing have a top ten pick. Every year you get better and fall farther down in the draft. Need a QB? Very talented group this year and we should get a good one out of the bunch. 

Even if we trade down, we won't have to sell the farm to do it.

Sure D W is very good. Unless we trade CMC, possibly another good young player, and draft picks it isn't going to happen.

Not sure it's worth it in the long run.....

What you got?

My sentiments exactly, but I'd be in for a 3rd or 4th for Stafford 

0.0% chance Stafford is dealt for a 3rd or 4th rounder.  A few teams would probably happily ship out their 1st rounder for him.

I'd say this is the approach most likely to take place. I can't see this staff putting all their eggs in to one basket one year in with a new GM who made his name as a scout. They will try build this team the way the good teams have always been built. You need a foundation of talent, not a lone superstar. I can't think of a team that has been successful throwing their draft capital away like that.

This.

An opportunity like this is probably never going to preset itself again.  Im all for shipping 2 firsts and CMC to get our guy.

You speak as though we're bereft of talent. Like Greenie says, a young QB of this caliber that hasn't even hit his prime yet doesn't happen. That being said, I'm good if it happens or not.

I'd have to say using it to pick our own franchise quarterback without having to give away a bunch of other stuff that we can use to rebuild the team would be superior.

Granted, it's also a huge risk.

We have a few great and promising players. We have little depth and no offensive line. The floor of your roster is more important than the ceiling IMO.

The highest ive seen him project is a 2nd round pick. His injury history doesnt help the trade value. It's not a matter of missed games, its that matter of the beating his body has taken.

How about 2 1sts, 2 2nds, 2 3rds and Brian Burns? Is he worth that?

Unless they build the offensive line then we will see a repeat of the early Cam Newton debacle. Sure D.W may have better tools, but he is an athletic QB who can run with a rocket arm....just like Cam was. 

The oline was always swiss cheese during his prime years. Got his ass beat and he was never able to fulfill his potential.
