It would be a brilliant move for the Raiders if they traded down and were able to get him. The guy is a stud, as he played with a horrific OL his entire career. He didn't have great talent around him, and that's what he'd be getting at Oakland, apart from Moss. JR may have been a product of the great players around him, and Quinn may be a better fit for the hybrid WCO. I don't think you can go wrong with Quinn, and a couple extra draft picks, hell, he might even go #1 overall if they want him that badly.
Detroit definitely isn't trading up, and I doubt Cleveland would either with JR, Quinn, or AD being available when they pick. That leaves TB trading up for CJ. What kind of deal could be struck that would be acceptable to both sides?
According to the chart TB would have to give their 1st, 2a, 2b, 3rd, and 4th rounders to make the trade equal. Obviously that isn't happening, so how little would Oakland be willing to accept? I have a hard time believing that TB would even give up their 1st and both 2nds (for a WR), which would be the bare minimum Oakland would consider. Oakland trading down is extremely unlikely, imo.
Yah I think everyone would be happy with Quinn at #4. I think he is a better prospect than Leinart was last year. I really have no idea how high we are on JR in comparison to Quinn. Our staff is doing a good job not showing their hand right now. I really think they want to trade down.
