Deshaun Watson: Trade an entire draft class for him?

ESPN NFL Insider Jeremy Fowler believes that if Watson is going to be moved this year, it’s more likely to come right before the draft and even laid out a scenario where an NFL team could not only offer one entire draft class, but they might even offer two entire draft classes:

Trading an entire draft class sounds sexy because it's almost never been done.    I think only the Saints for Ricky Williams.

 

But I think the reason it hasn't been done since is that it's not nearly enough to get a deal done.    The picks in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th round just aren't worth very much.    So while it sounds great,  in actuality,  it's not a very good offer.

 

That's why when you see a big trade it's typically done around 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks in multiple years.   Better to get high picks this year, next year and even the year after,   than get all picks in one year and four of them just aren't worth that much.

 

It's an illusion.    Sounds good,  but actually it's not.
