This Would Be The Ultimate....what If We Trade....


Recommended Posts

Just to test how strong some Draft Luck guys are....

What if we traded our 1st overall to Buccanners for thier 1st, 2nd and third this year, and thier 1st and 3rd next year.....AND....with the third pick we traded down to the 5th and get both clevland first round picks this year and a first round pick next year and thye draft RGIII

So for 2012 we have 1st round pick number #5 and number #30, 2nd round pick number 1 and number 3, 3rd round pick number 1 and number 3

And 2013 2 First round picks Likely in the first 10 picks and another likely in the last 10 picks,

That's 5 first round picks and 3 second round picks in 2 years

Yes but who would we take at 5? I'd guess luck, kalil, Blackman and rg3 would be gone. I'd like Trent Richardson and I guess that's who we would get. But what if Peyton isn't healthy when the season comes along but they think he will be. Another bad season

Tampa is picking a slot 5.. Cleveland at 4.... I am all for the trade down, but these are not the appropriate teams...

Just how far down do you think we should go though? I'd love to trade down and get Blackman but he may go at #2. I'd be pleased with Foles in the 2nd or 3rd. Seems he's projected around there.

St. Louis is in just as hot a spot as we are. There are NFLN and ESPN scouts now talking about RGIII having EQUAL value to Luck in this draft. The Rams are in position to rake in an equal amount of gold for the only other "sure thing" QB prospect of the draft. They aren't going QB, so teams like Miami, Washington, Seattle, and potentially Cleveland will be all over getting RGIII. They will take their chances on a #2 pick, probably giving up entirely on the notion of getting Luck.

RGIII will probably be pick #2 in this draft. Not Kalil, or Blackmon (and Richardson should be nowhere NEAR #5; I don't know who suggested that). More teams will be trying to get the Rams' 2nd overall pick knowing that they don't plan on taking a QB.

The only way it becomes favorable to us, is if we (wisely) consider trading down.

Curious scenario.

Let's set an upper range:

Let's say Peyton Manning is in the Draft this year and you know what he is going to become. Someone offers you the same scenario. Do you take Manning or the picks?

As far as I'm concerned, you still take Manning, but if you're willing to take the picks, then I don't see a situation where you ever don't take the picks.

Forgive me..... but why in the world would Tampa Bay want the #1 overall pick with Josh Freeman at QB?

Especially at THAT price.

If I'm the Bucs at #5 overall I'm foaming at the mouth at the prospect of either Claiborne or Blackmon being at that slot, because Luck, RGIII and Kalil will gobble up 3 of the Top 4 spots.

I don't mind contemplating some trade down scenarios but Tampa seems like a VERY unlikely player.

The Falcons gave up their first, second and fourth round picks this year. They also gave up their 2012 first and fourth round picks. for the sixth overall pick in last years draft so that being said we should get loads more picks thank people think.

Exactly. Giants gave up and entire draft for Manning. People keep talking about trading players in the draft....which never happens, and not about huge pick trades, which happens 1 every 2 years.

Is Josh Freemen they solidified man at Tampa?

where do people get these things from!!!

they swapped the 1st and 4th picks, the chargers also got a 3rd, and the next years 1st and 5th round picks.

that's two 1st's, a 3rd, and a 5th. that's a REAL trade, not the fantasy's fans are hoping for.

the falcons were picking 27th in the draft. you can't just use rounds to talk about trades. if you use the draft chart is is a very even trade.

I think it would be #4 and #23 this year. Atlants lost in the playoffs to the Giants so they are drafting in the low 20's.

Regardless whether the colts draft Luck or trade the #1 pick to some qb hungry team, the Rams will trade the #2 pick to some other qb hungry team so they can draft RG3. RG3 is not slipping past the 2nd pick.

And you know this as fact? No, it's your opinion. My opinion is that the Rams probably should draft Matt Kalil. Do you really want your quarterback to keep getting beat up and injured?

I'll put it this way. Let's say the colts had the #2 pick and they still had Charlie Johnson at LT. The blocking there has gotten pretty subpar. I am pretty sure that most fans on here would clammer for Matt Kalil to be the next colts LT, not trade away the pick.

So we're trading Andrew Luck for Claiborne or Blackmon or Richardson at the 5 spot? LIkely Richardson will drop lower than 5 as most RBs do.

We are in transition folks, and the only way I would trade away our QB future is if I'm getting Kalil, Claiborne AND Richardson, which is not going to happen.

Are the Rams going to value Kalil over a boatload of picks?

Well Cleveland ideally, I ment he had the order wrong, but Cleveland would be a great trade partner.

Pats won 3 superbowls and went to 4. They have 2 picks in the first fround for the last 3 or 4 years

I have one better. Why not trade number one to the Vikings for Ponder and Petersen. You get the missing piece on offense and a QB in waiting. Can you imagine the year Manning and Peterrsen could have? It would be unbelievable!! The Vikings could get Richardson at 3. Sounds like a win win.

Nobody every packages players for Draft picks on draft day. This isn't MLB

first incase you haven't noticed we ARE taking Andrew Luck

2nd Ok peyton comes back and plays 2 to 3 yrs then what we suffer through another 2-14 season i know i dont want to

3 the bucs have their QB and the name is Freeman remenber they used a high 1st rd pick on him

4 peyton may never play again 1 hit could possibly make him paralyzed

5 the question shouldnt be trade the pick but more importantly whos might be leaving (reggie, mathis, manning saturday clark garcon)

so stop whining about trading the pick and just accept it

Luck jerseys will get real popular soon

just for 1 second take your mind of peyton

what it was perhaps tony romo who is 36 coming off 3 neck surgeries and you had a chance to pick a guy like Luck

you would do it because its a MONEY MAKING BUSINESS it doesnt matter if hes a good guy you have to do whats best for the franchise. so before you think but peyton bulit this place yes but montana left and so did farve but even better we are giving manning an option to stay.

for you that say luck could be a bust so could any of the picks that we trade down for

2) I think that Peyton might be good for a lot more than 2-3 years, and the thought of future 2-14 seasons afterwards is pretty trivial actually. It's a cycle, it happens. It's what you do during the "up" periods of the cycle that matters, and throwing away "the greatest QB in the history of the game" in hopes of maybe avoiding some minor discomfort later doesn't make much sense to me. There is only one Peyton Manning, don't take him for granted.

4) Peyton has absolutely no more chance of being paralyzed by one hit than any other player in the league.

unless luck refuses to play for indy they will take him the father took elway jim took manning and hes not going to pass up on a pick like this

I don't think it would be smart to pass up on the players that you could draft instead of Andrew Luck... It's your opinion, just like adding lots of talent to this team through trading the pick is my opinion, although it seems like common sense to me when you add in things like that rookie contracts are for 4 years and that Peyton Manning has 4 years left on his contract.

    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team. 
    • She can talk some smack on analytics. Smarter than most of the hot take reporters / personalities out there. And she's super hot.  Highly doubt it happens, but we have a lot of things that could realistically fall our way.
