Would you do this trade?


Recommended Posts

not maybe our 1st next year but maybe a 2nd and 4th or 5th as well as our 2nd this year if they'd go for that i'd move up to get him but he'll be gone by the time the patriots pick we would have to try to get in the middle of the first around chicago and prop have to give up our 1st

No. We need to get off this train of trading future 1st round picks before it starts. Then next year you will want a first, and attempt to do the same trade, losing another 2nd rounder. Then the next year...and so on.

Grigson and the Colts today were talked about in the Star. The general feeling right now is if anything, Grigson is going to put his wheeler dealer hat on and try and trade back to get another 3rd or 4th rd. This is where the draft is probably strongest. I would love to trade the 2nd for a 3rd and 5th, or 3rd and 4th depending on position. We shall see.

I was looking at the draft value chart, and the our second round pick is worth 310 pts. I would love to trade it for a 3rd and a 4th, as I previously stated. Looking at the draft value chart, the 68th pick in the 3rd is worth 250 pts. and the 117th pick in the 4th is worth 50 pts. so that would work out perfectly. Then we would not have our 59th, but only giving up nine spots is not bad at all to the 68th in the third, plus we still have our third round draft choice, the 91st pick. Also now we have a 4th round pick which we did not have. So we lose our second, but we have two thirds, a 4th now, and our 5th, 6th and 7th. We get the extra draft pick by moving down 9 slots, and I would make the argument that the 68th is really a late 2nd round pick anyway with the depth! I think that would be perfect, of course you need a team who will go along with you and wants to, but I hope Grigson employs this strategy. 33rd position in the draft through the 4th round is where you want picks. It is very deep and a lot of good players.

    • That's on the upper end of WR2 money. Gonna say their calcs are off lol... Pascal is a great depth guy, but IMO he's too much of a tweener. Runs great routes, but isn't fast, and lacks some of the measurables. If he was faster, he'd make a great slot or Z. If he were bigger, he'd make a great X. He's just caught in between as a small X or slow/big slot. I'd say he's more 3/4, than 4/5. I'd love to keep him as that 4 guy. Just my opinion, but I think he'd make a good possession slot. Burton is getting those reps now. Will be interesting to see the re-shuffle once Pittman gets back at X.
    • Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/zach-pascal-22405/market-value/   i can’t believe Pascal’s perceived contract value is being shown at 8.4 million avg and 4yrs. That is a lot of money for a guy who really hasn’t put together an entire season or even really half of a season with numbers that make you feel he has more to his ceiling. He at times has made some plays and looked like is he breaking out and then he levels back out. He is a usable 4/5th receiver imho but nowhere near 8 million $/yr. wow! 
    • He wasn't horrible. He had the lowest completion rate of DBs in his limited time. He did look lost at times, but that's to be expected for a rook changing positions. Keep in mind Tell was a FS at USC, and converted to CB last year. He's built like a tall corner, so filling in for Moore at NB probably wasn't ideal. Can he play NB, IDK. He was never physical in college. He's also not fast (4.6ish). He did score well in agility in the shuttle though.   I really don't know where he'll fit. Not fast enough IMO to play CB1 or CB2. Not sure if he's physical enough to play NB or SS. Probably fine to play split safety in a two high. If he could toughen up, could be good at NB, dime, or SS, but he was never that guy in college. Perhaps a rona year hitting the weights will help. 
    • Brissett was given every opportunity to prove himself to the coaches and GM and he failed.  He's a good back up QB and that is where he is at.  He had 2 seasons and was given a huge pay check.   He is an average starter at best.   Bringing race into this discussion is stupid.
