Okay folks we have learned that the Detroit Lions will be giving up their #20 overall pick (originally Dallas' 1st rd pick given to Detroit during the Roy Williams trade). Along with this, it is reported the Lions will also be giving up their 2nd round pick (#33 overall pick or the 1st pick in the 2nd round).
Denver in return, will be giving up their 1st round pick #12, as well as their 3rd and 4th round selections.
1st (12): 1,200 points
3rd (12th?): 210 points
4th (12th?): 78 points
1,488 total points
1st (20): 850 points
2nd (33): 580 points
Mel Kiper, Jr. back here folks and it looks like these two GMs are awesome. Get these guys some models or actresses or shoot, I have some lovely flowing beautiful hair! This is a great trade for both teams. Denver misses out on their two top guys in BJ Raji and Rey Maualuga. Detroit, after taking Aaron Curry #1 overall can trade up for another real playmaker. Detroit now has THREE 3rd picks. This sets up well for a team in need of rebuilding.
I know the trade has already occured, but how did Denver get away with trading a 4th round pick in a 3 round mock? Or this going longer than 3 rounds?
