Nope. Are you Bill O'Brien?
What? Trade WIlson, use #21 for Cards Josh Rosen as most think Cards draft Murray at 1.1. Also there is now talk of Wilson going to Giants for 1.6 +1.17 and 2.37. I'd do that deal and take Haskins at #6 keeping #21. As I posted, if Rosen was target I'd begin negotiations offering a 2020 round two that escalates with incentives.
If Cards do decide to trade Rosen and trade 1.1 to Giants, they could still get Haskins as I said.
Summary: Rosen goes to Seattle for 2020 second or #21. Cards can trade down with other teams and still get good QB even if Giants trade for Russell Wilson. The best thing is another talented QB starter coming into play can impact Texans a lot.
Raiders 1.4 1800 + 1.24 740 +1.27 680 =3220
Texans 1.23 760 + 2.54 360 + 2.55 350 + 3.86 160 = 1630
3220 - 1630 = 1590
Oakland would have JD +1.23 and three second rounds.
Texans would have 1.4 1.24 and 1.27. I could see trading down #4 for more picks and still get Jonah. Not sure Mayock does it. If we got 6 and 17 from NYG so they get Haskins at #4.
Texans 1.6 + 1.17+ 1.24 +1.27..dang and Bills #9 and one of their thirds so they could get Oliver at 6. Houston 1.9 1.17 1.24 1.27 and 3.74.
Are Davenports odds of making the Pro Bowl this year longer than Tigers were to win the Masters ?
So I dunno who you putting your money on, funny things happen sometimes ?
the point of any trade is to make the team better - well at least in my feeble mind - and I just fail to see how dumping a franchise QB helps the Seahawks improve.
moot now anyway. John Schneider got it done.
Depends on whether about 30 AFC OTs are too injured to play in the game.
An interesting approach to the Draft.
Howie Roseman stresses depth in the draft
Posted by Michael David Smith on April 16, 2019, 12:00 PM EDT
Last month Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie identified the Eagles’ approach to the draft as trying to add volume, rather than targeting one elite player at a position of need. Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman is of the same mind.
Roseman said today that he’s all about adding depth in the draft and getting as many players as possible.
“Try to accumulate a lot of good players,” Roseman said. “There are a lot of good players on both sides of the ball.”
Although a franchise quarterback is an obvious exception, and the Eagles don’t regret trading up for Carson Wentz, generally speaking, Roseman said he has made mistakes in the past when targeting one specific player, and he now believes that it’s more about getting several players — perhaps at positions that aren’t needs now, but might be in a year or two.
“I’ve been humbled in the past by some of the mistakes I’ve made,” Roseman said. “We don’t know what we’re going to need a year from now, two years from now, and we’re trying to get long-term players on our team.”
Roseman sounds like he’s more interested in trading down for more picks than in trading up for one specific player. It’s a smart strategy, one that has helped Roseman build one of the NFL’s best rosters.
There's a lot to be said for this approach. Good starters and good reserves do better than great starters with lousy backups. A team without glaring weaknesses should certainly draft in keeping with this philosophy.
A team with just a couple of very weak spots that can be covered with one good draft ought to attend to its weaknesses first.
A team like the Texans, with perhaps too many needs to fix with one draft, wants to trade back and cover as many problems as possible, if only fairly well. They should try to make up the difference with personnel trades and FA.
More to the point, neither have to occur for Texans to reach Super Bowl.
Puts him just ahead of Aaron Rodgers.
Um, it's a strategy that's been deployed for one draft. The Eagles have taken their 1st pick or traded up the previous 9 drafts. Those 1st round picks are what's built this roster.
You have to understand, whatever pick the Texans have, they are always in no man's land.
Believe that when I see it. Philly needs OG and OT help and already has two picks in second and fourth. I could see him going for players like Scharping and Tytus Howard later but guy like Ford or Lindstrom at #25.

Raiders : 1.4 1800 1.24 740 1.27 680 2.35 550 no third round

PATs: 1.32 590 2.56 340 2.64 270 3.73 225 3.97 112 3.101 96
yep and imo there are some good ones last two rounds and probable UDFA's.
Texans have their own third and a projected comp that could be traded this year to close any perceived gap. In round three and later I tend to ignore point system and look at it as more of a player.
1.9 OL Jonah Williams 1.17 CB Greedy Williams 1.24 Cody Ford or trade down 1.27 edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson or trade down 3.74 Rb Damien Harris, Benny Snell or Darrell Henderson 5.161 OLB Maxx Crosby 6.195 CB/safety Donnie Lewis 7.220 WR Lil Jordan Humphrey
Texans have no comp picks this year.. don't know where you get this fantasy ramblings unless you're drumk like I usually am
