Default Draft Rumors and Tidbits

Figured I'd start a thread for interesting quotes that you may want to share but may not want to start a new thread for. Just a quote and a link will be fine.
Quote:
AP reports the Philadelphia Eagles or Tampa Bay Buccaneers could trade for Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander during the draft. The Seahawks are NOT asking for a first round pick in exchange for Alexander.

If two of Henry, Alexander and James get traded before or during the draft, we may see quite the slide and scurry over the top 3 RB's in the draft.

The RB situation across the league is getting very interesting indeed.

From greatbluenorth draft reports today:

Quote:
# QBs to go 1-2… According to a report in the Miami Herald, Miami has pretty much decided to take Utah QB Alex Smith with the second pick overall at the 2005 draft, if they keep the selection. If is the operative word, however. According to the same report, the Dolphins have had talks with Tampa Bay about swapping the 2nd and 5th picks with the Buccaneers reportedly interested in Smith for themselves. The sticking point to the deal though may be what Tampa Bay has to give up in return. The Dolphins appear to want the Buccaneers second and third round picks, in addition to the 5th selection overall, however, the Buccaneers are concerned about losing their entire first day to get just one player. It had been pretty much the consensus around the league that the Dolphins would take Auburn RB Ronnie Brown with the #2 pick, however, Miami will certainly be in a position to select one of this year’s top backs – either Brown, his Auburn teammate Carnell Williams or Cedric Benson of Texas – with the 5th pick overall. Indeed, there’s a good chance the Dolphins could end up with Brown with the 5th pick overall. Assuming San Francisco takes California Aaron Rodgers with the first pick overall, and Smith goes second, Michigan WR Braylon Edwards is likely to go third overall, either to Cleveland which currently holds the pick, or to a team that trades up to grab him. Then if Chicago opts for a WR like Mike Williams of Southern Cal rather than Brown, the Auburn star would be available at #5. And, of course, if he isn’t Auburn’s Williams or Benson would still be there.

Travis Henry: Bucs are Interested
RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com
Friday, April 15, 2005

Update: Bucs General manager Bruce Allen said he contacted the Bills on Wednesday about the possibility of acquiring Henry, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

Recommendation: The Bills' asking price for Henry is not clear, though the speculation is that a second-round pick would do the trick. If the Bucs can swing this trade, they could turn their draft day focus to receivers Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards, or they could make a move to trade up from the #5 spot to grab a potential franchise QB, either Alex Smith or Aaron Rodgers. Stay tuned.

Is it just me or does every time Miami is mentioned in a trade since Saban came on seem that they are looking for the moon? The guy sounds seriously unreasonable to me, almost like he's trying to prove how "tough" he is.

I have a feeling there will be a lot of trades in this draft.

Do they announce trades upon the first selection of a swap of picks, or is a trade announced after both teams pick at the swapped positions. In other words, if we move up, will we know it once the pick is called for the Texans new draft slot?

I haven't watched many live drafts - but I'm watching this year's!

The easiest way for me to answer your question, 57, is to pose a scenario:

Paul Tagliabue announces that Arizona is on the clock, then Arizona tells Tagliabue that they've traded the 8th overall pick to the Texans for the 73rd and 78th overall picks, then Tagliabue announces the trade and says that Houston is on the clock, we select Derrick Johnson, LB, Texas, and everyone is happy...

So we have the 8th and 11th picks, and only give up our 2 thirds for #8 overall?

Tagliabue steps to the podium.

"Arizona trades the 8th overall pick to the Houston Texans. In exchange the Cardinals receive Houston's 2005 1st round pick, number 13 overall, Dallas's 2005 3rd round pick, number 73 overall, and Houston's 2005 3rd round pick, number 78 overall. Houston is now on the clock." He leaves the podium.

A few minutes later he receives a card and returns to the podium.
"With the 8th overall pick in the draft, the Houston Texans select LB Derrick Johnson of Texas."

Thanks for clarifying Ogre, I was strapped for time typing this up as fast as I could and made a few notable omissions...

Thanks for the information D-Rek, Drift and Ogre! (I liked D-Rek's trade the best).

Wow! I can't believe that we traded for DJ? I'm pumped! I know - soy un perdedor. I'm a loser.

They don't always announce trades well in advance of the picks, though they always mention them before the pick is made. However, the TV crew generally has the trade showing before the NFL gets around to announcing it, so you don't need to worry too much about that.

Eagles | Interested in Bills' Henry? - from www.KFFL.com
Thu, 14 Apr 2005 15:56:50 -0700

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports the Philadelphia Eagles have shown interest in Buffalo Bills RB Travis Henry. The Bills have phoned the Eagles on more than one occasion, but Henry's interest in a new contract could kill a potential trade from coming about. While the Bills are looking for a second-round draft choice, they would probably take a third-round or even a fourth-rounder that could move up to a third-rounder based off of incentives.

Quote:
While Davey's accuracy, footwork and overall game management has been average at best in the preseason, some NFL scouts compare him to Jacksonville's Byron Leftwich. And his arm strength remains off the charts.
The Pats have certainly done their best to accommodate Davey's skills, which include decent mobility and the ability to throw on the run. During the Super Bowl, then-offensive coordinator Charlie Weis revealed the Pats have a special set of six plays that are designed specifically for Davey.
There have been strong rumors this offseason that former defensive coordinator and current Browns head coach Romeo Crennel is interested in trading for Davey and bringing him to Cleveland to compete with Kelly Holcomb and Trent Dilfer for the starting job.

49ers | Rodgers No Longer Top Choice? - from www.KFFL.com
Mon, 18 Apr 2005 16:50:28 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports San Francisco 49ers officials informed NFL Draft prospect QB Aaron Rodgers' (California) representatives over the weekend that they favor QB Alex Smith (Utah) by a small but definitive margin.

I wonder if this is at all related to the rumor that the Bucs like Smith also. Baiting for a trade???

Probably. I saw this quote earlier...
