Mock Trade Proposal

Given the salary cap hell that the Texans are looking at (Tunsil/Watson/Fuller/Cunningham extensions and Cooks/Cobb upcoming salaries) I was looking at ways for them to obtain some additional picks to get some cheap players at positions of need. What do you think about this trade and mock draft?

2.40 traded along with Keke Coutee to Philly for Rasul Douglas, 2.53 & 3.103
2.53: Chase Claypool: prospect with a frame to be an X receiver on a team full of Zs
3.90: Darrell Taylor: OLB who slides due to medical questions unable to be answered due to Covid-19. Worst case is situational pass rusher.
3.103: Darnay Holmes: Slot Corner who beats out Hargreaves by the end of the season
3.111: Leki Fotu: Run stopper who could play DE in Base scheme?
5.171: AJ Dillon: Bruiser to compliment Johnson and Johnson in the backfield.
7.240: Yasir Durant: my back up to Tyre Phillips (took Dillon instead) as a massive college OT moving to RG due to athletic concerns
7.248: Gage Cervenka: toolsy IOL whose floor is Mancz. Possible replacement for Martin in a few seasons.
7.250: Bravvion Roy: 2 down DL who will be the immovable object in the Texans D moving forward.

Dear sir, have you forgotten who our current GM is?

2.40=500 points from the Jimmy Johnson Value Chart, 149.45 from the Rich Hill Value Chart and 1057 from the Jason Fitzgerald Value Chart
2.53+3.103=458 from JJVC, 140.04 from RHVC & 1468 from the JFVC

So the draft picks are very close to equal if not slightly in Philly's favor. Coutee has an extra year left on his rookie contract and plays at a position of need for the Eagles. Additionally, the rumor is that Douglas has been on the block this offseason. I believe that this deal works well for Philly as they move up from 53 to 40 and Coutee is certainly going to provide them with a better playerthis year than anybody they might select at 103. Do you think that Douglas is a more valuable asset than I give him credit for? I think this is a trade that (remarkably for a message board) makes sense for both sides.

O'Brien has buried Coutee so far down the bench, his trade value is nil. Lack of size, lack of positional versatility, injury history, no value on special teams. The definition of a fringe player.

Douglas is a part time starter, mainly reserve. Plays about 50% of snaps. Is he a CB, FS, SS? Kind of a jack of all trades, master at none. I don't know whose PT he's taking on the Texans roster. He has more value to the Eagles.

Ok, so back to the drawing board. I truly feel like the Texans are going to make a deal to acquire additional draft capital. They need talent on rookie contracts pretty terribly. In light of the apparent consensus that 40+Coutee to Philly for 53, 103, + Douglas is unreasonable how do these deals grab y'all?:
Same deal minus Rasul Douglas (40+Coutee for 53 & 103); or
40, 250, +Coutee to LVR for 80, 81 & 91 (or 2021 3rd)

According to some reports, Stills is on the trading block, Coutee about to be cut. So you might want to see what a #3 WR on an expiring contract is worth on the trade market. O'Brien paid a future 2nd last year for Stills, so I'm guessing a 5th this season, or a future 4th.

A future 2nd and got back Stills and a high 4th. Hopefully Stills is used to move up in the 3rd and a 2021 4th.
