    Glazer: Texans seeking RGIII-type compensation for trade down

    Texans asked for an RG3-type deal for first overall pick
    Posted by Michael David Smith on May 7, 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

    If the Texans are going to move down from the first overall pick in the draft, they want a huge bounty of picks. Which means they’re probably not trading down.

    According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, when a team with a Top 10 pick contacted the Texans to ask what it would take to trade up to No. 1, the Texans responded that it would take what Washington packaged to move up and draft Robert Griffin III two years ago: Three first-round picks and a second-round pick.

    “The Houston Texans said, ‘If you want our pick, it’s three number ones and a two,’” Glazer said. “When RG3 was traded, that’s what they got. . . . But, no. No one’s giving up three number ones and a two.”

    What we don’t know is where in the Top 10 that team wanted to move up from. It’s possible that the Texans might be willing to accept less if a team in the 2-4 range asked them to move down just a couple spots. Glazer added that the Texans’ trade demands are on “a sliding scale,” meaning they’d ask for more compensation the further back they were going to move.

    But as it stands, it sounds like, given what the Texans are demanding, they’re keeping the first overall pick.

    Glazier seems to be more reliable then other media people. I thin this would be good for us. I think they take Clowney or a QB and that leaves us with a trade back for someone to take Clowney or if they take Clowney someone may want to trade up for another pass rusher like Mack.

    Apparently the Rams have spoiled trades up here for other teams. If it were a team after Atlanta, I'd ask for the same thing that Houston did though. Not because there is that RG3-type player available, but because Houston (or St. Louis) will miss out on picking one of the Big 5. The drop off in player grades would require that amount of compensation.

    Since there's not someone worth moving up for at that price, I don't see a deal happening at all. I could see St. Louis asking for a lot less, but they'll have to pray a QB goes in the first 5 picks. At this point there's a plausible scenario where a trade down with Atlanta has Robinson, Matthews, and Watkins off the board at 6.

    Would it surprise anyone if the Texans took Manziel with the 1st pick?

    At this point, after this many rumors, almost nothing would surprise me unless the Texans drafted Kim Jong-un

    I'd be shocked and ecstatic at the same time.

    That would be a long 15 minutes for you my friend while the Rams are on the clock with a shot at Clowney!
