    Cool Alternate trade option

    Say for arguments sake the rams like G.McCoy ahead of Suh there isnt apparantly alot between them as both are nfl ready dt's (for the record i think suh is better and yes I have seen his stats and understand that argumeny)

    The rams convince Tampa that they want suh and get trade down with tampa to 3rd and pick up a 2nd and 4th round for arguments sake.

    The rams also convince washington that we want bradford, (as we sit ahead of washington they have to trade up to 2nd to get him) meaning they trade with detroit to get in and steal him from us as it were.

    However we sit pretty at 3rd having traded down and land G.McCoy and have an extra draft picks in the later rounds. I READ this elsewhere and paraphrasing it, to see what people would think. Also this move works if we want clausen as well.

    Re: Alternate trade option

    the gm's of every team probably go over these scenarios every day. also if we don't want bradford and washington doesn't trade up then that leaves Suh and McCoy off the board with the Rams in a big hole.

    I guess I'm just not a big fan of trading down if McCoy isn't guaranteed to be at the #3 spot plus I like Suh a lot more

    Re: Alternate trade option

    This would require two trades in the top five, none of which I can recollect happening at any time recently.

    Also it would require us to pull the reverse the double reverse manuever, or something like that, a highly difficult and dangerous psychological trick, which would require us fooling teams and them not fooling us in the process.

    What this means is that this is 99% unlikely, and that there is way too much down time from the end of the season (or for us mid-season because we were forced to start thinking ahead before the end of the season) and the draft for us to ponder such things.

    Re: Alternate trade option

    I just don't know if that makes sense for detroit; their biggest need is by FAR a DT....Now if Millen was still around I'd say an agrument could be made... but I think its unlikely Detroit trades out of that 2 spot.

    Re: Alternate trade option

    i dont know how that second trade helps us at all

    why the hell would i care if the red skins get bradford if our whole intentions are to get Gerald McCoy?

    Its not like they are in our division

    But id rather go Suh over McCoy. But im a franchise QB sam Bradford right now.

    Re: Alternate trade option

    To me, the only DT I would consider using our 1st round pick on if we're still in the top 5 is on Suh. I really do not want McCoy if Suh is gone. I would much prefer Bradford, and even Clausen.
