Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

I would be willing to trade Orakpo straight up for Robert Griffin (personal preference more than equal value), but the idea that the second pick is worth Orakpo and the 6th pick is very silly.

I would offer this year's first and second, Rak, and next year's second rounder for the #1 overall pick.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

I love the potential of RG3, seems athletic, can run & throw, and seems smart. Seems every draft analyst has fallen in love w him.

BUT, anyone else concerned that RG3:
1) Was not even in this conversation about 6 months ago? One year wonder?
2) Is at heart a running QB, who tend to get injured in the NFL (see "Vick, Michael")
3) Ran the spread offense in college?

Again, I do think RG3 be good -- but we have to objectively look at him before we throw away our team to get this guy. I'd rather throw the house in for a guy like Luck who's produced year after year, is not a gimmick-run QB, and ran a pro offense...

I just think you can't go wrong with Luck, but you'd have to get a little Lucky with RG3.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Here's what I'll tell you right now about the Orakpo rumor because I feel it's kind of suspect. It involves him going to a 3rd team for a draft pick that WR would use as part of a deal to move up, so we wouldn't have to use so many of our own.

my doubts about this are A) the other team actually picks much lower than us so their picks aren't enticing and B) there's another player involved (not on the Skins) and moving him seems impossible.

That's the thing with talking to inside sources though. Sometimes they'll just flat out tell you "Listen, off the record, we're going to sign Hunter Smith" or they drop hints and it's up to you (well I guess me in this case) to figure out wrongly "Damn, we're about to get Darren Sproles" or rightly "We're going to trade for Jamaal Brown"

This seems to be one of the latter cases.

By the way RGIII's is the fastest time of this Combine so far and fastest QB time since Vick.

It's just a heck of a lot to give up.

I feel the same. Not really big into losing guys we have drafted so recently and made the probowl twice in three years. Yeah the guy has value, but does he not have alot of value for us?

RGIII. Why do some many think he is a franchise QB? There are so many questions about him, that for all the positives you can give there are just as many reasons not to do a deal. This is the problem with the college game transferring to the NFL. There are so many unknowns that when you have to give up so much for a prospect it is a gamble that is hard to swallow.
