I do not like this trade. We needed to get more than that. Giving up our 3rd is bad news.

More JLac:

Skins Make A Helluva Deal

Getting 3 picks for this pick, one the team was never married to and one where it may have required a stretch given their needs, makes all the sense in the world.

They get 2 second round picks - 34 and 48 overall - and also get a 4th round pick, which they previously lacked (103 overall). So the Skins pick 34, 48 and 51 in the second round, then have two third round picks as well.

You can not load up on needs at O and D Line in that 2-3rd round range, and you are still going to be able to get a quality WR as well. Maybe not with as much upside, but kids like Simpson from Coastal Carolina could be excellent in the third round even if they don't take Kelly or Nelson in the second round.

Merling might be there with the 34th pick as well.

I love the trade. That gives us 3 2nd rounders, 1 3rd, 1 4th, 1 6th and 3 7ths.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Umm, I don't like it.

We should have been done with getting the additional 2nd round picks. NOT giving up our 3rd and 5th.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I'm happy even if the draft chart says we were on the losing end of that trade. We hit the sweet spot of the draft (i.e., 2nd-4th).

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I think the trade was a smart move. We now have three, 2nd round picks, our Comp. 3rd round pick and a fourth round pick and our 6th and 7th rounders.

I like the trade, more picks. We gave up a 21 in the first round and a late third round, and a 5th. For two early second round picks and a fourth. Has anyone looked at the points of the trade?

The warpath site is barely functional, everyone else having the same problem?

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Financially, it's a great trade. The 34 and 48 picks should be easier to sign and cheaper than a 1st rounder.

Draft value chart we come out ahead by a bit. Like it don't love it, but it's sure a lot better than a WR at # 21. Also the Cowboys make a bonehead pick with Jones IMO

Why does Ed Werder only seem to cover the Boys? ESPN doesn't seem to have a Redskins, Giants, or Eagles beat reporter.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Ive been saying for months that we trade down and get Kenny Phillips and Calais Campbell. I didnt think we would get a receiver too

In the second round, how much time between picks?

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

yet more Jlac, with his correction:

The Full Trade (We Were Given Wrong Info From the Team, Here's The Full Details Now)

Here's The Trade, as the team now reports it to us in the media room:

Skins get the 34th and 48th and 103 pick
Skins trade 21 overall, 84 overall (third round), and 154 (5th round)

So they had two third and a fifth round pick originally, and now have the following picks.

34, 48 and 51 in the second round

96 in the third round

103 in the 4th round

they dont have a 5th round pick now

they have 1 sixth round pick and 3 in the 7th round (two comp picks there)

Sorry for the confusion. Skins still end up right now with 9 overall picks.

It's obviously not the fleecing that was first announced here in the media room, not close, but still a nice deal.
