I said earlier I wanted Mailata but if the Colts can keep their one OT can be solved in the draft

 

I wouldn't expect them to add in a player of his status in that deal. Same for Dillard.

Eason was starter got hurt, Fromm came in played well and they elected to stay with him and Eason transferred       If you want to go that route then, Justin Fields couldn't beat o

I just wish this Wentz story would end 

The Texans aren't trading Watson to the Colts under any scenario.  Imo

I don't devalue future picks. 3d is a 3d. There is no good reason for future picks to be valued less than current year picks. In fact, if teams indeed work like that in the league, this should be one of the easiest ways to take advantage of GMs with old-fashioned attitudes towards assets. Pretty much every time I get such an offer I would take - this year's 3d for next year 2nd? DEAL! Over the long run you this type of deals should bring you SO MUCH value. 

The standard is there.

 

Not going to delve to deep into it.

 

Colts example:

Tony Ugoh

 

The Colts traded their 2008 first round pick to acquire Ugoh in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft

Last years draft example:

Seahawks, Jaguars make another deal

Seahawks receive:
» 2019 seventh-round (No. 236; select WR John Ursua)

Jaguars receive:
» 2020 sixth-round pick

 

https://www.nfl.com/news/2019-nfl-draft-trade-tracker-details-of-all-the-moves-0ap3000001027756

 

2018 Draft examples:

In a total surprise, New England makes another trade (sarcasm)

Patriots receive:
» 2019 third-round pick

Lions receive:
» 2018 fourth-round pick (No. 114) -- Da'Shawn Hand, DE, Alabama

Not going back any further.

 

So while you don't devalue future picks, the precedent is there.

Oh I know... I just hope Ballard is not one of those GMs that subscribes to that one. In fact I would be hoping he's one of those that takes advantage of other GMs who do.

Yes there is.  The Bears now know the offer they have to beat.  If they want him they should be able to do it in short order.  

What was the offer

Agreed unless his OT/DE is there at 21 and might not be there later

Interesting Season 1 Episode 104 GIF by Rick and Morty

think there will still be some promising OTs in Round Two (Cosmi? Little etc) BUT I suspect nearly all of the Edge guys worth picking may go in Round One, unless maybe it's one of the guys from Pitt (not sure if CB likes them anyway, post-Senior Bowl)

The offer Jaws reported.  I consider him reputable.  He is very well connected to the Eagles.  I think this was done intentionally by the Eagles to get the Bears to beat it and get this over with quickly.

I keep saying the colts offer is the highest one. Chicago isnt in position to be throwing away a bunch of capital in my opinion

unless their GM figures "what do I care? I'll probably be gone in a year anyway"

The Colts offer says Ron Jaworski is....

 

— Two 2’s and perhaps another pick, a 3 or a 4.    The other pick sounds contingent on certain markers. 
 

No players named or hinted at.   Just picks.

I could get on board with that

if that happened you know Ballard would just trade back to get 2 back

I'm already checking to see which teams have early-to-middle 2nd round picks--NYJ, Mia, Atl, etc

 

would be interesting if CB swung a trade down from #21 that included a 2nd round pick higher than Philly's....oh, the irony

21 celsius(think 70 fahrenheit) in New Zealand, but 18 knot SW sea breeze...can't read all these GIF animated posts, but hoping Wentz goes to North Dakota or somewhere else, soon.

Correct, here are the details, as a refresher for those who may have missed it (which is understandable because this thread grows faster than Gremlins after you feed them after midnight):

It was Jaws so probably pretty accurate 

gotta think that Radunz, Little and maybe even Cosmi would still be there early in the 2nd round if CB did trade down from #21

 

if Darrisaw or maybe Jenkins dropped to #21 in Round One, maybe Ballard would go ahead and make the pick instead of trading down?

@Fluke_33 @HectorRoberts

   It is 25 here in the Pocket but feels like 15 and we have 4+ inches of snow and ice on the ground

 

     Monday was the only day school was in session this week

    • Pacers are an amazing organization IMO.  They’ve assembled competitive teams for most of the last 25 years with very few high draft picks and not much FA draw to the square city in the middle of a cornfield.   They stink because of injury.  I’m pretty bullish in them assuming a return to the court for all these injured guys.  Are you?
    • The Seahawks allocated about 20% of the cap to the oline, raves about 12,  and 2011 NYG about 15.  That is what this thread is  about, cap economy.
    • In one of the posts I’ve said it’s possible that the Colts are revolutionizing football which happens every so often.  It’s not likely statistically because these type of changes happen once or twice a decade or so.   I said think the rules dictate that the passing game is the most efficient way to score.   One thing that might favor such a revolution, is the fact that since the rules are set up for passing success, teams have adjusted their personnel characteristics,  smaller LBs, nickel base ds.  It’s possible that  emmit smith era emphasis will come back.  I doubt it though.  You still are going to need to throw it into the end zone.
    • I’m not talking about having a great oline.  I’m talking about spending 30 to 40% of your cap in them..  Of course having a great o line is helpful.     The Hoggs aren’t recent.
    • They did Kelly's extension in September, just before the season started.   As for the percentage of the cap, the correct projection is to compare the projected cap hits to the projected salary cap figures. Just because contracts account for X percentage of today's salary cap doesn't mean they'll be the same percentage of the salary cap two or three years from now.
