    Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    What is the minimum price you'd accept to trade down from #1 to #4?

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    I wasn't able to come up with a rational proposal that really entices me.

    The problem for me is that the 4th pick won't yield any of the 2 top DTs, and the only other players worth the 4th pick (Spiller, Berry, Okung) are not primary need positions for the Rams, and don't solve the QB issue.

    If I didn't have a high opinion of Bradford... or if I had a higher opinion of Clausen or Campbell... then I could come up with a deal that I would like.

    As it is, I'd just prefer to take Bradford in Round 1 and, if there is a desire to obtain extra picks, accomplish that goal by trading down in Round 2.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    If I knew for a fact that the Rams were 100% sold that Bradford is their guy for the next 6 or 7 years it would take a lot. Maybe next years 1 and 2 along with a 2 and 3 this year. Terribly unrealistic. I know. But if they were sold on Bradford but not Clausen, how much is that worth?

    Obviously we don't know which one will pan out, but if we had a magic ball that could tell us who would be the better Pro, what would it take for you to pass on the better of the 2? I trust the Rams FO and their scouts. If they take less I'll assume its because they really weren't sold on Bradford.

    EDIT: Didn't see your post Avenger, and I somehow missed the poll too. I voted #1 and 2 this year, #1 next year..but even then I don't really like it..

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    If Washington wants to give us their 1st, 2nd & next years 1st, I say pull the trigger.
    If 1 of the 2 DT doesn't fall your way at #4 you have the option of getting Okung & creating bookends at the tackle position for years to come. Berry would be an outstanding safety & then I know he's not popular here on the clan but Clausen could also be had at #4. & if none of the above works for anyone there is always the chance of trading down again. Sorry it would be just to hard to turn down 2 #1's & a high 2nd for this years #1. We have way to many holes to fill.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    For a first, second and next years first, I'd make that deal. Sam Bradford looks good, but nobody is bust proof, I'd rather have 3 chances at drafting a stud (with the chance of 3 possible stud's) than one.

    At 4, there should still be trade down opportunities if we don't like anyone on the board. We could move down again to 9 with Buffalo and take a HUGE weapon like Dez Bryant or a big time LE prospect like Derrick Morgan or a shut down corner like Joe Haden.

    A trade like 1.04, 2.04 and next years first rounder for 1.01 could really fill a TON of holes on this team. Not to mention, next years draft for QB's may be as good as the Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, Big Ben year and we should still be in a great position to land one of them.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    Wow, just imagine it...

    Trade 1: 1.04, 2.04 and next years first for 1.01

    Trade 2: 1.09, 2.09 for 1.04 (They'd be interested in Okung, I'm assuming).

    First 3 rounds:
    1.09- Dez Bryant- WR
    2.01- Jermaine Gresham- TE
    2.04- Jahvid Best- RB
    2.09- Carlos Dunlap- DE
    3.01- Sean Lee- WLB

    Next year, one of our firsts for a franchise QB and the other for a defensive star.

    I'm salivating at the possibilities... I really hope the Redskins overpay for Sam Bradford.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    If the Rams traded from 1st to 4th, I think it's very likely they would trade from 4th to a lower spot. If you could get an extra 1st rounder next year for the move to the 4th spot, an extra 2nd rounder next year and an extra 2nd rounder this year by moving lower, I think that would be alluring. Considering the weights on the value chart that would mean going down to about #20 this year.

    edit: to move from 4th to 1st, Washington would likely just have to give up next years 1st round pick. Not any additional picks.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    I'm not really interested, but if Washington were to somehow acquire 1.02 or 1.03, I'd take that for a relative pittance in additional compensation.

    Re: Minimum Price for the No. 1 Pick

    If the Rams trade down to #4, they might very well wait until Washington is on the clock to see if either DT is available to them. The Lions could take Okung at #2 pretty easily, so I wouldn't rule it out.

    Assuming that's the case (that McCoy or Suh is available), I selected #1, #2, Jason Campbell.

    i think this is the most likey scenario , cuz ya its a risk that both DT's might not b there.... so i think theyl try and trade down from that 2nd round pick maybe 5-10 spots....maybe a team like buffalo or seatle will trade up and get Colt Mccoy or Tebow
