    Re: Schefter: Saints Looking To Trade Up With Rams? McFadden on top of Rams' board?

    We'd need a lot more than Devrey Henderson. I wouldn't even put him at a 4th. Maybe a 5th rounder.

    Short of an all-pro being included in a deal, I don't think we move out of this pick.

    Saints explore trading up in the draft

    By Adam Schefter | NFL Network

    Bill Parcells and the Miami Dolphins have been unable to find a trading partner for the No. 1 pick. But the St. Louis Rams now have options at No. 2.

    The Saints have made inquiries with the Rams about what it would take to go from New Orleans' scheduled 10th overall pick all the way up to St. Louis' at No. 2.

    Based on the antiquated NFL draft point chart, the Rams pick at No. 2 is worth 2,600 points. The Saints pick at No. 10 is worth 1,300, and their second round pick is worth another 490, meaning New Orleans is going to have to come up with more than its two first-day picks.

    New Orleans is looking at add a stud defensive player, and it could opt for LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, a pick that would be enormously popular in that area, or even Ohio State linebacker Vernon Gholston, who would be a terror on the turf in the Superdome.

    People who have spoken with the Saints insist the talks are not substantiative, more informal, but the fact that one team has pursued moving up is noteworthy. This year, no team has been willing to move up to Miami's spot at No. 1, even New Orleans. The Saints are unwilling to pay what it would take to satisify the Dolphins or the player picked at No. 1.

    In previous years, teams have declined to move into the top 10 picks. The last time there was any type of blockbuster trade was 2004, when the Chargers and Giants were involved in a trade that featured quarterbacks Philip Rivers and Eli Manning.

    As interested as the Saints might be in moving up, the Rams are in no rush to relinquish their pick. They recognize that they're going to come away with help for one of their lines -– either Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long or Dorsey.

    In an upset, the Rams could always opt for the top-rated player on their board -– running back Darren McFadden. But it's up to the Saints -– or any other team that's interested –- to entice the Rams with an offer that is good enough to get them to surrender the No. 2 overall pick.

    Re: Saints explore trading up in the draft

    I'm glad to see this article. I actually heard about the Saints trying to move up and talking to our RAMS this morning on NFL Talk radio. That's all that was said though, no details at all on the radio.

    I really hope this is a smokescreen to entice the Falcons to trade with us and grab Glenn Dorsey so we can grab CHRIS LONG.

    Re: Schefter: Saints Looking To Trade Up With Rams? McFadden on top of Rams' board?

    I disbelieve this for two reasons......

    1. Today is a day in April that ends in "y".
    2. The mouth of the individual saying it was moving.

    Re: Schefter: Saints Looking To Trade Up With Rams? McFadden on top of Rams' board?

    Sigh.

    I guess I have to explain to everyone again about the perils of sports reporting/rumors.

    First of all, who was it who said Schefter was reliable? Please identify yourself and make a suitable apology now.

    Second of all, I love how PFT is talking about the "new" trade value chart as if its an established thing. In fact, it was PFT who published this "new" chart about a week ago.

    Could the Rams consider a deal? Sure. It would have to be more than the Saints first 2 picks, though. I like the idea of Will Smith, but I seriously doubt that would happen.

    As for McFadden being at the top of the Rams' draft board... you have to be kidding me. Of course, that does not stop Shifty Schefter from reporting as though the Rams sent him a copy of their draft priority list in the mail.

    But, hey... its all good for talk, right?

    Dropping down to #10 is too far in my opinion.
