Trader Joe's

There are several ways for us to capitalize on this draft. I wanted to list a couple ideas that are out there get your opinion and your mock draft with your favorite scenario. The likelihood of any of these trades are slim to none but why not.

 

1. Doo Doo Brown

 

Trade back with Cleveland

 

The Browns have really made some moves. We could be the final piece in facilitating a trade between them and the Pats. We trade our 1st round pick for two 2nd round pick and a 4th. The Browns could trade the 12th and the 15th for Jimmy or the 12th and two 2nd round picks 2018 for Jimmy. Our pick is important to give him a weapon most likely OJ Howard or to give the Pats two 1st rounders for Jimmy if thats the asking price.

 

Our draft would look like

2nd (browns)

2nd (browns)

2nd

3rd

4th (browns)

4th

4th (pats)

4th (comp)

5th

 

 

2. KC and the Sunshine kid

 

Trade back with Kansas City Chiefs

 

 

We get both of their 3rd round picks

And Jeremy Maclin

 

The familiarity between the front office helps deal. Andy Reid gets his QB and with Alex Smith only having a year or two left on contract this is the perfect time to groom a young QB. KC gets cap relief from getting rid of Maclin 10 million a year contract. Getting QB in the 1st round becomes crucial especially looking at the Kurt Cousins situation. They jump ahead of Washington and Houston for a QB.

 

Luck now have Hilton, Maclin, Moncrief, Doyle, Gore and a rookie rb as weapons. If healthy this could easily be a top 5 offense. We do have enough money to absorb Maclin massive contract.

 

Pick 27th

2nd

3rd

3rd (chiefs)

3rd (chiefs comp)

4th

4th (pats)

4th (comp)

5th

 

3. Griggs isn't the only one with Philly number

 

Trade with Philadelphia Eagles

 

Trade our 5th round pick for Mychal Kendricks ILB.

 

4. Jet lag

 

Trade with New York

 

Trade our 3rd round pick and 4th round comp pick for Sheldon Richardson of the Jets. If/when he leaves the Jets next year they will probably recieve a 3rd round comp. This is a loaded draft with us picking in the middle of the 3rd round. The value of our pick plus the 4th round comp should be enough to pry him away. If he leaves us we get a 3rd round comp. This is a expensive rental but after watching how the browns were able to keep Collins I'm sure we could retain Sheldon Richardson.

 

1st

2nd

4th

4th (pats)

5th

 

5. One Giant leap

 

Trade with the New York Giants

New York jumps ahead of Baltimore and Tampa Bay for a RB or OJ Howard. They have a short window to win another championship. Eli is getting older and Odell contract will be out of this world. Giants tool up for a 2 or 3 year run.

 

1st (23rd)

2nd

2nd (Giants)

3rd

4th

4th (pats)

4th (comp)

5th

 

With so many arm chair GMs I'm sure we can get creative and put together a decent draft.

Thanks for the read and participating 

 

Your trade values are fair according to one chart I looked.  Your logic is sound enough.  The chances of any of the scenarios happening?  Who knows.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if we do trade back, we need the talent.

I have been a proponent of your Cleveland trade for quite some time now.  The only difference is that I want Dan Shelton their NT and a second and a third versus your two 2's and a 4th.  Same idea give them what they need to trade for Jimmy G.  Shelton is there former 1st. rd. pick who is still in his rookie contract.  They are switching to a 4-3 so they really don't need a NT.   I like the trade for Kendricks but there is still a chance they might release him anyway. The Giants trade looks good to me as well.  I can see Chris trying to trade for more picks.  Nice job.

My personal favorite is #5 and is the trade that I have been using in many of my Mock's. Among these potential trades, it is easily the most reasonable. I wouldn't mind any of these aside from the Cleveland trade, though (Too much drop down)!

I was thinking Seattle at #26 would be a good trade partner.  The #15 would deliver  to the OL-desperate Hawks Forrest Lamp, perhaps the only instant solid starter in a poor OL draft...

Nice creativity.   Good read and you put some thought into this.    Not sure if any would work out but I like the Doo Doo Brown other than the fact that it would give the cheats 2 1st...   not cool.

Hence the name Doo Doo Brown lol. Yet if the Pats lost the heir to the throne would it be worth giving them 2 1st rounders. A quality QB is so hard to find

haha great names.

 

But is KC even interested in moving Maclin? Even so, I'm not sure how I feel with getting another long term contract for a WR, unless the team really has 0 faith in Dorsett and those murmurs about Moncrief turn out to be true. Even so, I'd rather get younger.

 

I like the Giants trade though. I could see it happening.

That is pretty good OP.  I would like to add one element to the Giants trade.  Instead of maybe getting their pick, instead take Hankins off their hands.  They don't wanna pay him, we need him, they get a lower pick outta the deal and move up in the 1st.  If not there could be SOME creative way to do it.

I would love the first option and trading with Cleveland.  This allows us to have some solid 2nd round picks and still get a great deal of talent with the 9 picks.  We could immediately address OLB, CB, and DL right away and be getting great players.

    •   Yes.  You, sir/madam hit the nail square on the head.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Nas made one of the most positive rap songs I ever heard "I know I can"...  Andre 3000 is a positive force in this world, and makes great music, however you define it.   I hate twista, but that's just my personal opinion.  Everything else you said, I completely agree with.  KRS-1 is a founder.  Q-TIP is a founder.  Jurassic 5 builds on the foundation like few others.  I've never been a fan of the Beastie Boys, but I'm a biased individual.  Cube is THE foundation, along with the rest of the 90's concrete.   Ready to Die...  
    • Also Biggie... Can't think of a bad one he ever spit, although some of the songs had too much Puff Daddy for my taste... If Mace is on a track, I can't listen to it... Monotone, mumbly, awkwardly worded every time he raps.
    • Not sure they would be bigger then Dre he is a icon he even discovered Eminem. I haven't talked about him yet he is actually prolly my favorite modern rapper his flow is absolutely amazing 
    •     Can you imagine Biggie and Tupac enjoying the success of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Chris Tucker?  They would be the same age as Dre and Snoop, and way more successful.  They could have been the most successful rappers to ever play the game, and retire as icons...   The music/movies that they could have collaborated on?  The coast-to-coast success they could have contributed to if they hadn't been gunned down?   I mean, they could have collaborated in music and movies if they had just buried the hatchet and squashed all that east/west bullcrap...    
    • I can't decide on this one.. For me, it's a toss up between Nas and Jay-Z... Both are absolute geniuses.   Kendrick Lamar will belong near the top of the list eventually.. He is amazing. Eminem has a legitimate claim to possibly having the smartest/most complex rhyme schemes and probably uses more literary convention with regard to poetical forms than all others. His rhymes on the 2nd Bad Meets Evil record (with Royce Da 5-9) should have been game-changers, but couldn't stop the mumble rap from taking over.   Twista might be the fastest, at least he's the fastest without having it overtake his flow. Bone Thugs have some incredibly quick verses.   I think Andre 3k should be included in the discussion. He has some borderline ridiculous verses, but many profound ones.    As far as old school guys, my personal preferences are KRS-1, Q-Tip, Jurrasic 5... Beasties have great jams , but not overly skilled lyricists...   Cube is the best battle rapper all time, imo, although Eminem and Common are both deadly as well   Edit: when I said "battle rapper" I should have said that he makes the best "dis tracks" battling is another scene... I think the consensus might be that Marshall Mathers is the best straight up battler

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
