Another Draft/Trade Rumor

Comcast SportsNet says there's a rumor of the Patriots trading with Miami to get their first round pick (20th overall). Then sending their two picks (20 and 21) to the Skins for the #5

I wonder who the targets at 20 & 21 would be? Starks and Troupe?

That right there would be the most intreguing. I really dont want to see the Pats get any stronger though. They are looking to be awsome once again. I really doubt we would accept this trade, just because none of the guys we target would be avalible then. I cant wait until saturday afternoon when this rumor crap is all over and the only thing we have to worry about is the season

don't like it. Sure they could address a couple of needs, but I would prefer Taylor or one of Harris, Smith or Wilfork (although one could be available at 20/21)

I think passing on Taylor could haunt us in time.

i agree... a player like taylor comes around at 5 only once in a while. filling "good" players in the 20 range carries a higher risk (imo) than taking him.

I dont like that idea.We cant pass on Taylor or who ever is around at 5 for a 20 and a 21 that just doesnt make sense to me.I think the only way we trade down is for something in the top 15 and mabee a second rounder.I would even throw in Trotter

thats not enough to trade down. i may be being greedy about this but i'd want atleast one or two more picks thrown in. even then i really want us to draft taylor or winslow. we need some type of impact player and we aren't gonna be in a position to draft players of this quality again for a while(knock on wood.)

ALL OF are so sure that.....

Taylor will be there when the Redskins pick! I hope so but it is starting to look as if it just might not happen. Lets say he isn't there what next? Take Winslow or trade down?

come on, guys. We have to take into consideration what we've already done over the last 2 years in free agency. Last year mainly Coles and Morton, but this year already we've signed C Griffin, M Barrow, C Portis, S Springs, M Washington, M Brunell... need I go on? We have a virtual who's who roster of impact players. Ify and Bowen are just one coach from being impact players. We need role players more than another 'locker room leader.' I say take 20 and 21 and get some dline help. Besides, which superbowl defense was a good on paper since the Ravens won as we have been for years now? The missing link, to me, is leadership and role players, not more superstars.

I agree completely. We constantly add stars, but it's the gaping holes in outher areas that always come back to ahunt them. I like the idea of trading down for multiple picks. I would try and squeeze one more later round pick out of New England and then make this deal. I would also look to then trade down from #21 to accumulate more picks. The Redskins have ignored the draft for years they should take this opportunity to infuse the roster with youth in many areas as opposed to adding one more star.

Don't get me wrong Taylor & Winslow are great but after adding one of them the team still would have gaping holes elsewhere with no more high picks left to fill them.

I really can't wait til tomorrow. Mainly because the draft is fun to watch, but mainly because we can finally end the rumors and scenarios.

The danger of making such a trade is that you don't know what value will be available at #20 when you make it. We may project that a quality DE or DT will be there, but there are 14 picks between #5 and #20. What if there is a run on D-linemen (or TE's, DB's, etc.)? Besides, according to the "Trade Value chart" (http://www.nfldraftview.com/tvchart.html), we'd be getting the short end of such a deal. Unless there was also a swap of players/salaries, this deal isn't good enough.

Agreed, plus I am sick of being torn about if I would take KWII or Taylor.... at least tomorrow night I can not think about it anymore
