Default Would you trade....

Here's a trade idea I thought about and was wanting to get the consensus here. Would you trade JJ Watt and 2014 #1 overall for say Andrew Luck or Aaron Rodgers?

Rodgers is damaged goods? Did something happen after he returned from a broken collarbone?

I would for Rodgers but I wouldn't for Luck. The 1.1 would be too much to give up for Luck. Rodgers is one of the "Elite 4" QB'ing in the NFL right now. I would trade any player/draft pick to get him to QB for the Texans.

I would trade JJ Watt and throw in Foster for Andrew Luck. I mean the kid has only gotten the Colts to the playoffs in his first 2 seasons of playing....

I think the #1 overall pick holds more value right now than Foster does. Could just be me though.

No. I don't dig on trading picks unless they're for more picks. The defense kinda guy I am says hell no to trading Watt.

This asswad (Smith) has been saying they'll build the team predominantly through the draft. It's on him to find the future QB whether it's this year or the next.

Hopefully he's better at drafting QBs than he is DBs (his experience), because he sucks at finding DBs.

I would rather have a great QB than the best defensive player in football AND possibly a good QB or other options. A great QB is worth about 10 other players in this day and age, because he just means so much more to a team than any other position.

It would suck to lose Watt. And it would suck to lose the intriguing #1 pick. But you can build a good defense without elite talent - you can`t win without at least a good and clutch QB. A great QB can mask many of the teams shortcomings.

I am still not 100% sold on Luck - but it`s close. He is doing so many great things, than does something completely stupid next. IŽd still call that growth... Rodgers? If he is healthy of course you do that deal.

This is a QB-driven league, not a defensive lineman league.

As much as an impact player that Watt can be, an elite QB is the be all / end all of championship teams.

Yep. I'd make the trade in a heartbeat.
