Scenario for Trading into top 10

Postby BucaRican » Fri Mar 10, 2017 10:51 am

Okay fellas the question is simple, Under what scenario would you trade into the top 10 in this years NFL draft?

Mine is very simple,if Fournette or Cook is available at 7 I make the jump and try to trade with the Chargers.

2 Reasons:

1. I think both of those guys would be great in this offence. Also they are both special players.

2. This would ensure that Carolina would not grab either of these guys. Last thing we need is Cam having a elite back to run option reads with.

So it's simple what player and at what position would you jump into the top 10 of this years Draft. Please don't give the obvious, "we are good lets just stay put" answer.

You could trade up to 7 to draft Cook or you could stay at 19 and take him or you could trade down and take him.

In all seriousness, there's no player I would trade up to the top ten for.

Ditto...

There will be a really good prospect at 19 that likely will be ranked close to guys going in the top 10. It's that type of class imo.

Sure, there are enticing prospects. But there are alot of 1st round talents in this class. So giving up a 2nd or 3rd to move up doesn't seem worth it when you can stay at 19 and still get close the same quality of prospect you could get at #9.

The cost for trading up is so prohibitive that it isn't worth it. At least for me, with this class and our pick at 19 this year.

Here's the big board I made for another thread, sorted by tier of my reaction to the pick.

Sprint to the Podium and Throw a Parade in Celebration (1-4)
Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama
Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford

I’m Pretty Excited (5-16)
Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee
Jamal Adams, S, LSU
John Ross, WR, Washington
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
OJ Howard, TE, Alabama
Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama
Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

Solid but I Was Hoping for Better (17-27)
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford
Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
David Njoku, TE, Miami
Jabrill Peppers, S/OLB, Michigan
Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan
Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan
Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
Tim Williams, DE, Alabama
Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt

There is very little chance I will sprint to the podium, those guys are probably all gone in the top 6, and I sure as **** wouldn't mortgage the future to trade up to 6, the cost is too high. However, there's a damn good chance we are picking from that second tier of dudes, and we would not have to a trade up to tenth overall for it. Even if that second tier is all gone, the solid guys are, well, pretty solid picks.

No thank you to a trade up.

This is a very good draft class. It's not a knock on any prospects projected to go early. But as Dread stated there will be good players available at 19. If we were targeting a specific position of need I could see moving up. But I don't think we will be. So the cost of moving up won't be worth it.

Wow Cheb, why such the hate on Davis? I think he's the top WR of the class.


I'm with you BucaRican! Well, I wouldn't trade up, especially what it would cost to get to 7, but if OBP did for one of those players I wouldn't even be mad. At the end, I just remember that the draft is a crap shoot and even though it's loaded, we're a 50/50 at best to not draft busts on Day 2. I'd rather get what OBP feels like is a sure hit home run. Remember when we were going to package J. Bolden, Wyms, and multiple picks to get Megatron at #2? We didn't because our draft picks were "too valuable". Yeah.... Gaines Adams (1st), Aarron Sears (2nd), and Quincy Black (3rd) were "too valuable" for Megatron....

I think one will fall out of the top ten (hopefully), in which case hoping the Colts at 15 would be the move. Far less costly to do.

I like this...
Things will shift down based on QBs.

I Just really hope neither Cook or Fournette end up in Carolina. I guess in my eyes its a strategy for the future of not having to face those guys 2 times a year with Cam.

But it is a deep class and we have done well drafting without deep drafts. Let the trend continue.

I agree. That wouldn't be good for us. I'm hoping they see how deep the draft is a RB and go with a CB instead, hopefully one that busts.
