Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

I know most of you won't like this but think of it for a second.

Trade 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 7th round pick for pick #2. Take Glen Dorsey

Trade 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 7th round pick for pick #3. Take Chris Long.

We still have a third round pick to take the best WR available.

Our defensive line is set for many many years. Think about Dorsey, Griffin, Long, Montgomery, Carter, Golston, and sometimes Wilson.

I know you lose some value picks but really it could be worth the risk. Long and Dorsey by themselves are going to be studs for 10 plus years.

Too much to give up IMO. This team could really benefit from a stockpile of young quality depth.

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

No offense, but I'd rather trade Portis to move up to get McFadden (and that's a terrible move).

We'd be sacrificing needs at so many other positions and for what? Our defensive line would hardly be set. Griffin has a year or two left. Golston is an overachiever who may not be here past this upcoming season. Wilson is very good at what he does, but he really only does one thing.

Not a good idea

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

If you know we wont like it then why did you post it? Did you think the ever convincing argument of "think about it" would put us over the top? Holy moly.

"Hey I've got an idea that you all are going to hate but here it is anyways and I'll give you no reasons whatsoever to change your mind to boot." is basically what you did.

FAIL.

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

Try posting something like this in the Day 1 thread. Random opinion threads aren't usually well recieved here or ironcially at ES. However for some reason people start them almost daily (over at ES).

Smoot and Matty, with the draft coming up, we're destined to get a bunch of ES like threads that belong in already existing threads. Is there any way you guys can stop the madness before it starts?

I don't want to wake up on Monday and see threads like:

Was our draft class better then the Cowboys

Why we should have traded for McFadden

Sexy Surprise Thread

Should we have gone DL/DB/OL/WR in the 1st round

Is Anthony Mix Still a Factor

Travis Henry????????????///???///?slash???

I wunt trude 4 Chard Junson wit next yr's 1st rund pick

Wil our (insert our 1st pick here) be better then Lavar

My Ultimate Post June-1st Free Agent Plan: Better then Cerrato's

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

Some of you guys need to loosen up it is a just an idea. Some of you I understand your points. IMO I think it is a decent idea.

Who are we going to draft instead? Merling? Kelly? They may be good, but I would rather not take the risk on either.

If you get Dorsey and Long and plug them in next to Carter and Montgomery you are set for a LONG LONG time. Having a dominant dline will make our LB's and Secondary even better. We know we have some young talent back there because they had to play last year.

Now we still have a third round, 5th, 6th, and two sevenths to take as many young Oline positions, and a QB and hopefully one or two pans out. WE WOULD HAVE 7 PICKS THIS YEAR.

As for the other positions you guys are listening to the media TOO much. We have young talent on this team, if you watched them play last year you would know that.

Now I'm all for keeping draft picks and not trading for veterens but we are not talking about trading for veterens we are talking about trading for YOUNG sure fire probowlers at a position that we always wished we had a dominant player.

When you look at it it looks like alot but when you look at who we are thinking of drafting this year outside of Brandon Albert (who I love to have) it really is not that much of a risk is it?

Re: Crazy Draft Idea (But you might just like it)

I personally dont mind trading up in the draft, if it means getting a quality player im all for it. That being said, I think the falcons and rams both know the value of these players. I just couldnt see it happening even if we tried.

A logical response of why this is not a good idea would be appreciated.
