Is 3 first rounders too much?


Recommended Posts

If I'm not mistaken wouldn't the Texans have to eat all the guaranteed money? Watson's guaranteed money is a little less than $111 million with almost $74 million of that guaranteed at signing. He got a $27 million signing bonus. So if we're getting Watson at a deeply discounted rate I think it's 100% worth 3 1st round picks.

Will the Texans even take our 3 1s if the Jets offer 3 1s and Darnold or 4 1s  and Darnold?

 

Also it may take 3 1s to get Fields or Lance this draft.  We have to Jump the Lions, and theyll have a Stafford 1 and 2022 1 to make sure they get their QB

You can't offer four first round picks. It's not allowed.

Depends on the status of your team.

If you're pretty close to being a Super Bowl contender, then while I'm not a big fan of it, I can see it.

For a rebuilding team though, that's just giving up too much.

Spot on.

Why not

The Jets have this years and next year 1's from Seattle for Jamal Adams.

 

If they want Watson. They can easily trade both of Seattle's 1sts and their own 1sts for 2021 and 2022

3 1st's⁰ is to much for our team at this point. If we were only an elite QB away. 

Agreed, and it's pretty frustrating because Watson is incredible. I'd love to see him go the Colts honestly.

Let me correct and clarify:

NFL teams who already have dealt for first round picks like the Jets & Dolphins could trade more than three, but we can't because NFL teams are restricted to trading more than 3 years in advance.

Watson is absolutely worth 3 first rounders.  Consider this...the Browns have been looking for a top QB literally forever.  You may think Mayfield is them finding one but the jury is out if he is that guy.

Watson is that and building a team when you have your QB is much simpler IMO.

Watson should be our top target, period.

How many players the caliber of Watson have ever been available at his age?  Cant think of many.  Maybe Marshall Faulk?  If he ends up leaving Houston someone has committed robbery.

No top picks forces you to overpay in FA - see LA Rams. Yes, they went to a Super Bowl but they lost. The Eagles went and won. Both paid high prices to get their QB, but they paid the price and are in cap hell. 

cant believe you are asking this...of course it is too much....wayyyyy too much

Its an easy YES!  Look at it this way.

To move up to the 3rd pick this year.  Picks 8, 40, and 2022 1st. That is (2) 1st and a 2nd for an unproven QB

To get Watson, you are giving up (3) 1st for a proven top 5 QB

This is not a hrad decision at all. If your GM can't continue to build the roster in rounds 2-7  then you have the wrong GM
