Don't get me wrong, I think that RGIII is dynamite and I would love to get him. But I think these factors may make him fall to #6:

1) Footwork/mechanics concerns
2) Durability concerns moving to the next level
3) There are real studs at other positions and teams may prefer to have the best player at position X rather than the second best QB
4) The trade-up price for QB hungry teams below us will be very steep, perhaps too steep to leapfrog us

2012 -1st
2012-3rd
2012- 4th

2013-1st
2013- 5th
----------------------------
2012-1st
2012-2nd

2013- 1st
2013- 4th
---------------

My scenario was a estimation, and it wasn't overblown that much even though you think it is. I can see several packages like the one above given for that pick.

The Panther's traded their 2010 1st rounder for a 2009 2nd round pick (43rd) worth 470 points.

You want to know why it cost the Chargers so much to move from #3 to #2? It was because of the person at stake. At the time, Leaf was perceived to have a higher ceiling than Peyton.

Fast forward to now. RGIII is also being touted as a top prospect along with Luck and is said to have a higher ceiling. He's obviously good enough for Irsay to mention both him and Luck.

Put that #2 up for bid, and the price could sky rocket if teams start a bidding war. If you want to argue about me adding an additional 4th or 5th to the chart, than by all means haggle away. It was a rough estimate, but it was enough to show that we dont' want to give up that much for one guy.
To be clear on what this was- I said I thought you were guessing high on the trade price, you said it wasn't a guess, it was the cost based on previous trades and the value chart. And now, several posts later, we get that you are guessing that it will be more than recent trades and the value chart. Fine, it is your guess, nothing wrong with that. Just wish it didn't take so long to get back there.

John Clayton was just on the radio and his guess was that it might cost the Redskins two firsts and another pick for Griffin (after he talked about how much smarter a move he thought that was than signing Manning, and how he felt Griffin was a perfect fit for Shanahan's offense).

I guess that settles it. John Clayton knows what's best for the Redskins even though he hasn't a clue about our offense or any of the characteristics that Mike looks for in a QB.


As far as the other stuff, I'm not going any further with you. You want to argue just for the sake of arguing and you are saying things I said that aren't there (much like you did with 30gut) so I'll step out of this horse race right here and now.

LOL. Nice try. I am not trying to argue, in fact I just made an attempt to end the discussion fairly.

You said you weren't guessing at the cost, you referred me to the value chart and recent trades, which in the post right above this one you explain why you're guessing it will cost more than that. Go ahead and run away from your own words, but all you had to do was to admit that you were guessing like everyone else and leave the superiority complex out of your posts.

As for the 30gut thing earlier, I made an attempt to explain to him how he was completely misusing a statistic, which he failed to understand. Given the nature of this discussion, I don't know whether you personally lack the intelligence to understand it, or are willfully misrepresenting it. Neither would surprise me.

Why the hate for John Clayton? What did he ever do?

He wore glasses. That's unforgivable.

No hating on JC. Kid was trying to use his word as if meant something in the grand scheme of things. How does Clayton know who would be a good fit or not? He study film? Coach techniques? Understand the type of QB this system needs?


This doesn't mean I don't like Clayton because I do. I like his reports. Him and Mortensen are my favorites.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Clayton's career is to know these things. He studies it, speaks endlessly with experts in the field. It's what pays his bills.

Yeah, but it only got him into the HOF. Clearly his opinion pales in comparison to Random Internet Hotshot who thinks his guesses are facts.

Why? He's not a analyst nor a draft expert so why does he need to know these things to report?

If he does these things, I'll cut him some slack then. That said, even Morocco Brown and Scott Campbell had to get instruction/guidance from Mike in regards to the characteristics they looked at regarding their system. If a professional scout team couldn't do it, not sure I buy that Clayton can either. Not unless they've broken it down to him.
