Trading up with Chicago for Odunze


Recommended Posts

With the Bears getting Keenan that means they likely will view picks as more important than another WR. If there's confidence Bowers would be there at 15 then that would be great. But this team needs a true alpha pass catcher and Odunze is a guy that doesn't usually drop to 9. This is coming from an Oregon season ticket holder

It depends on what the cost he. I have wanted Odunze to the Colts since the fall. If all it costs is this years 3rd rounder, I’m down for it. Or if the Bears still want receiver help I’d trade our 2024 3rd and Alex Pierce.

 

If they want anything more than I’m content with drafting Brian Thomas Jr or A.D. Mitchell.

Too many quality WR out there and 15 is a good spot. No need to trade up. One will fall in lap. Heck you can get a good one in this one without even using 15 on a WR.

Depending on how the draft falls and if the top 3 WRs are gone I think the Bears trade back with the Broncos at 12. If Odunze is there at 9 the Bears will want to take him themselves I think.

Depends also if all of this JJ McCarthy talk is real or a draft smokescreen. If McCarthy is on the board and someone wants to go up to 9, Chicago is going to ask for more than just a 3rd rounder.

Hypothetically, on the flip side, let’s talk a scenario for us giving up No.15. If The Chiefs want Bowers as Kelce’s successor, and are willing to swap first round picks and give up a future 1st, would you give up No.15?

There is no realistic trade I would make if Bowers or Mitchell are at 15. I'd be running to the podium.  Streichen having Bowers is a dream scenario

I think I'd want more THIS draft as well.

 

Switch firsts, their 2nd this year and next. Still not sure I'd do it though. I'd really like for Bowers to land with the Colts.

That wouldn't be enough compensation thought it is more darts on the board, IMO.

 

Switch firsts is a given. I'd want their future 1st and a current 3rd in addition. :) 

 

That would a) give us an extra pick this year on Day 2 plus b) give us their future 1st, which we can parlay for any trades we want to do.

u trade up for a receiver when you are pretty healthy at your other roster spots. We have glaring holes at corner, DE, FS. We have to get the pass rush solved and  do not be mislead by last year's sack totals. This pass rush is invisible in to many games. They were apparently going after Hunter in free agency pretty hard. That tells me that they are not happy with the pass rush.  Expect them to put more resources into that area, plus they have to make a decision about Paye who does not deserve a 5th option. I would like a corner or DE at 15 and I want them to trade up to get that guy if they have to. They need a play maker

    • I like this. As a way to refine my thinking on your question, I'm bolding the players that I think have a reasonable chance of a) being on the roster next season, and b) have a reasonable chance of getting a meaningful second contract from the Colts. Starred players are those that I think have a good chance of being Pro Bowlers within the next 2-3 years. And italics are rookies, on whom I'm not yet taking a position.   To me, the bolded are the projected young core of the roster. And the starred and bolded -- Richardson, Taylor -- represent the potential stars on the roster (Taylor already being a star-level player).    Mitchell and Latu deserve recognition as well. I think highly of their prospects, they could be star level players in the future.
    • I know there was questions about TE bring there. Cox was there. Don’t know if any others were there.
    • I often go through an exercise I call "Tomorrow's Colts", in homage to the Star Trek episode "Tomorrow's Enterprise", where I look at the roster counting only the young players.  Just those 25 and younger.  This gives me an idea of the shape of our team when it comes to asking the question "If we have only a 4-year window, or a 6-year window, who would still be here at the end of that window?  Who would our foundational players be?  And which of today's players would determine the boundary of that window, because of their retirement?"  Also, which positions should we draft, simply to backfill for those rounding out their careers. As you look over the list, please note who is missing.   Tomorrow's Colts QB Anthony Richardson (age 22) QB Sam Ehlinger (age 25) RB Jonathan Taylor (age 25) RB Trey Sermon (age 25) RB Evan Hull (age 23) WR Alec Pierce (age 24) WR Josh Downs (age 22) WR Adonai Mitchell (age 21) WR Anthony Gould (age 23) TE Jelani Woods (age 25) TE Drew Ogletreen (age 25) TE Will Mallory (age 25) T Blake Freeland (age 23) T Jake Witt (age 24) T/G Matt Goncalves (age 23) G/C Tanor Bortolini (age 22) G Dalton Tucker (age 24) DE Kwity Paye (age 25) DE Dayo Odeyingbo (age 24) DE Laiatu Latu (age 23) DE Isaiah Land (age 24) DT Aditomiwa Adibawore (age 23) DT Jonah Laulu (age 24) LB Grant Stuard (age 25) LB Cameron McGrone (age 25) LB Jaylon Carlies (age 22) CB JuJu Brents (age 24) CB Jaylon Jones (age 22) DB Jaylon Simpson (age 24) DB Ameer Speed (age 24) S Julian Blackmon (age 25) S Nick Cross (age 22) S Trevor Denbo (age 25)   Note anybody missing?  And how they would affect the length of our current window?  
    • All I can say is if Jamal Adams makes a positive impact for the Titans, or Simmons or Diggs make a positive impact for someone else I’m gonna be upset with Ballard. It’s nice and all to trust in your young guys to step up, but you can still do that while covering your butt in case they don’t.
