The Dolphins could give us their 1st Round, 2nd Round, and 3rd Round picks and Culpepper would still be valued as the 36th overall pick. Sorry, but this trade isn't happening.
its not that his value jumps up that much, but det would move down to a spot they could draft someone they already liked, gain another younger qb that could sit and get healthy, and they get an early 2nd rd pick...
its not as if their trading their draft for culpepper, but honestly, its like they get a former pro bowler at qb for only moving down 7 spots, and getting another early 2nd rd pick, thats not a bad deal id say...even if daunte never does anything, you only gained from the deal, aside from the contract
