Default [Grantland] What if Trade Scenarios

Saw this article on Grantland.com highlighting some what if draft day trades and Texans came up.

2008: Joe Flacco goes 18th to the Texans, Duane Brown goes 26th to the Ravens

Not enough Ravens fans were thanking the Jacksonville Jaguars for this year’s Super Bowl win. In 2008, Baltimore, fresh off a 5-11 finish, was the owner of the no. 8 pick in the draft. Jacksonville, which has been in need of a pass rusher since the franchise’s inception, packaged the 26th pick, two third-round picks, and a fourth-round pick to Baltimore for the right to move up and take Florida defensive end Derrick Harvey. Harvey was cut by the Bengals last August.

Baltimore packaged one of those third-round picks, a sixth-round pick, and the 26th pick and sent them to Houston for the 18th pick. That 18th pick was Joe Flacco, he of the Super Bowl MVP and $120 million contract. In what seems like a rarity in pro sports trades, the deal ended up being a good one for both sides, though. With the 26th pick, Houston took Virginia Tech offensive tackle Duane Brown. At the time, Brown was considered a project. Seven offensive tackles were taken before him in that year’s first round, and although a couple of them still remain among the league’s best (Ryan Clady, possibly Jake Long), Brown turned into the best of them. He’s 13th on that Pro Football Focus list of the best players in the NFL, three spots ahead of the second-best tackle (Joe Staley).
Thoughts?
