Is there going to be a trade?
Pretty inactive on this board lately, so time to add a new thread.
Is there going to be a trade of the #1 pick? I know most of us (myself included) think that the chances are slim to none, but with some of the activity going on in the league right now, that may change.
-- New Orleans. Apparently very interested in a DT to upgrade their line. To go get Dorsey, they may have to get to #1. Tuna and Payton have a good relationship and trust each other (I think). Maybe something like a #1 next yr and another pk this year could get it done.
-- Kansas City. If this Jared Allen deal happens (to Min for a #1 and a #3), that would leave them with a lot of ammo to move up. If they want Jake Long, (thanks Jeff Ireland) they have to get to #1 because I think St Louis jumps on him at #2. Do you take back #5 plus a 3rd and our #5th that we traded for Trent Green to make the drop? I would say yes immediately.
-- Baltimore. They were already looking QB before McNair retired. Do you they love Ryan enough to give next yr's #1 with another pick this yr to move up and get him? As an aside, I think Ryan will definitely be the Falcons' pick at #3.
An even better scenario for Miami would be to make the deal with KC and then have New Orleans move up to #5 to get Ellis. Now, you would really be adding picks. (I know, too good to be true)
If they can trade the pick and/or JT and add some picks for the next 2 drafts, the rebuilding process can really begin.....
