    Either way, runningbacks are not like quarterbacks. Nobody is that concerned with "locking up his rights" when you can just sign somebody else or draft another guy in the 3rd or 4th round that could likely get you the same type of production.

    GM's regard most runningbacks like they do washcloths nowadays.

    I realize that you're a Chargers fan and you want to get as much as you can, I just don't see it happening.

    I would say a mid 2nd is possible (or the swapping of the two 1sts). Anything more than that is stupid. But...it only takes one stupid GM (see Houston) so you are correct in saying that it potentially could happen.

    It should all be the same chart -

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft0...ory?id=2410670

    The difference in #16 and #30, plus #80, is 570, which puts you right between the #33 and #34 picks in the second round. If it's just a swap of thirds like some have said, that puts the value further down in the second round. So you can decide for yourself if Turner is worth a 2nd.

    It's not too bad a deal for the Packers, considering they still have a first, a second, and just filled their RB need. In this draft, I think Turner is worth it; color me biased, but I think Turner at 5'10'', 235 pounds with speed and a guady career YPC is better than Michael Bush, Kenny Irons, Brandon Jackson, Antonio Pittman or whoever else.

      Unless they deal up, something I don't believe Thompson has ever done in the 1st round, they probably aren't going to land either Lynch or Peterson. This leaves them with a massive hole at runningback, and Turner would probably be a solid fit in Green Bay.
      That would be their best option

          But if you look at the trade value chart swapping 1st should be enough

            i think AJ Smith will be reluctant to deal for that

              Well then next offseason he can watch Turner walk away for nothing

                I'd take Turner over all the backs this year other than Peterson and Lynch. I don't see the switch 1st and give up a 3rd as realistic because his value is more of a mid second. The best I can see them getting is switching 1st and 3rd with someone.

                That is correct comahan

                  Don't get me wrong, as a Bears fan I would **** my pants if the Packers were stupid enough to give up a 1st for Turner, but I think that's wishful thinking.
                  You would regret that **** my friend. Turner is a beast, I think any team would hate to see him enter their division. I guarantee that if Turner is a starter this coming year, he has a bigger impact than any rookie RB other than maybe AD.

                    This was also mentioned on Sirius Thursday. They said the rumor was that the Chargers would accept a 2nd rounder.

                      I agree that Turner is better than everyone in this draft except for the top 2

                          Pretty cool, I think Michael Turner is a very talented player.

                            He's not worth a 1st! Plus nobody would give up a 1st, they would rather wait and see if he makes it to free agency next year

                              Michael Turner = Lamont Jordan


                              Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                                I'm just saying because all I saw was big runs, probably because I'm on the east coast, but I think he has potential, and Lamont Jordan is absolutely terrible, there is no way he's that bad
