The cost to trade up for Kyler Murray

Matt in SGS : 3/14/2019 10:14 am
Taking a step back from the Odell trade and what the Giants got back in the deal (plus all the other deals they made). And factoring in a few Gettleman choice quotes of "no guts, no glory" and referencing the "Kansas City Model", I think I'm at a place where I believe the Giants will get a QB in this draft.

A team won't send their head coach, offensive coordinator and top scout to see player's pro day, and spend time with him unless there is real interest.

So, if you are of the belief that the Giants are going to go into this season with the heir to Eli, what is out there? A trade for Josh Rosen, which will cost a 2nd or 3rd rounder and is probably the safest route because the Giants will still be able to use their first rounders to fill holes. But there are enough indications the Giants are not considering him due to any of a variety of reasons.

Haskins, Lock, Jones are all decent prospects. And all are generally considered to be at best maybe even but likely below the class of prospects we saw last year, a class that Gettleman didn't want to get involved with and opted for Saquon instead as the safest pick because he didn't want to miss at #2.

And then comes Murray. There were questions about how serious he was about playing football and if he'd go to the A's. Questions about his height and weight and if he was too small. Well, the height and weight show that while undersized, he can still be an NFL QB. He's the best of the QBs in this draft by any and all accounts. Gettleman said you can't find your franchise QB in the middle rounds, you need to draft them high.

Now is where we have to wonder the real trigger in the Odell trade, to build up enough assets to trade up to get Murray. There are only two other teams with multiple first rounders, the Raiders and Packers. The Raiders are sitting at 4, 24, and 27. I see no real way that Mayock will trade 3 first rounders to move up to #1 to get Murray while he still has Carr on the team. They will want to fill out that roster with players. We know the Packers are not trading up to get Murray with Rodgers there. Sitting at 6 and 17, to bring in first rounders this year, the Giants have the best potential immediate package (unless the Raiders trade up)

So, the next question. What would it cost? Let's look at the most recent QB trade ups, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz.

In 2016, the Titans picked #1 and the Rams picked at 15 (a big jump) and the cost was reflective

The Titans got the Rams first round pick, 2 2nd round picks, and a third round pick. The following year it cost their #1 and #3. They got back the first overall (Goff) and the Titans 4th and 6th rounders.


Now the Eagles trade for Wentz with Cleveland.

The Eagles got the Browns #1 (2nd overall) and a 4th rounder the next year.

The Browns got the Eagles 1st, 3rd, 4th round pick, a 1st in 2017, and a 2nd in 2018.

Bottom line, the costs appear to be roughly what you'd expect:

- Need 2 first rounders (check thanks to the Odell trade)
- Need a 3rd rounder (check, thanks to Odell trade)
- looking at a high pick in 2020. Since the Giants have given up 2 firsts already, the price could well be a 2nd next year.

And the Giants have additional picks in the 5th round this year if need be.

Bottom line, the Giants now absolutely have the ammunition to move up to #1 this year because of the Odell trade. And they can offset the go forward cost and hold on to their first rounder next year.

So, would you do the following?

Trade up for #1 and draft Murray

Give up:

Both 2019 First round picks (6 and 17)
- 2019 3rd rounder
- 2019 5th rounder (pick one)
- 2020 2nd rounder

Maybe there are a few 4/5/6s shifting around either way, but those are the bones of the deal.

Would you pull that trigger to get Murray? I think that's the cost. The Giants have the draft capital to do it. They keep Eli to mentor for 2019 and hand the keys to Murray either later in the year or in 2020.

the Giants are truly rebuilding they need to keep both picks 6 and 17 and get quality players who can start right away. You don't trade the farm for a 5'9 QB. I actually like Murray and wouldn't mind drafting him at 6 or 17, I trust the scouting department to make the right decision on where his value is. I stopped letting football get me to emotional a while ago, but I would be a little upset if we gave up both draft picks to trade up in this draft for a QB. We should be filling the roster with as much young talent as we can.


Murray will never get past 4 (the Raiders). The price tags start at 1-3, if the Giants want Murray.

Again, to me, given the choice, I either trade up to get Murray at whatever spot they can ahead of the Raiders. Or if the Cardinals take him, I trade for Rosen since I'd rather keep the 6th and 17th picks to help upgrade the talent on the roster. I don't touch Haskins, Lock or Jones because Rosen is pretty much the same prospect, only he's got a year in the league and lower cap hit and won't cost a first round pick to take.
No way would I do that

I dont expect them to trade up into the top 5 but i wouldn't rule out a trade up from 17 when they see a guy they like start to slide. Everyone likes to throw out the "Kansas city" model sarcastically but this is would be similar to them moving up for Mahomes @ 10. a qb at 17 may not scream franchise potential but weve seen plenty go top 15.
Not  
Giantfootball025 : 3/14/2019 1:06 pm : link
sure I agree Haskins, Lock, Jones are the same prospect as Rosen. Rosen was extremely polished coming out of college. Haskins and Murray are a bit of unknowns, Lock is big, athletic, and has a cannon, but has consistency issues (especially under pressure). Jones is honestly the wildcard. I honestly haven't' seen the guy enough to really have an opinion. And I try not to go off of what I read all the time especially around draft time because there's a lot of mis information out there.

Being in the corporate world for 20+ years now, I can appreciate good corporate speak. My favorite is when I'm in a meeting with a millennial who busts them out and has no clue that

1) they are using buzzwords and the rest of the room sees through it
2) what they actually mean

I could have said the Giants would leverage their draft capital to reallocate resources with a focus on the QB position with a forecast plan of drafting in a different position next year in anticipation of a better record and utilize different assets to fill out the roster and cap space in 2020.

Now that is doucebag corporate speak in NFL'ese.

The "Kansas City Model" was actually used by the Giants in 1993. They had Dave Brown and Kent Graham behind Phil Simms. The plan was for them to learn under Phil and one of them would win the QB competition in 1994. The problem was, neither of those guys were any good and the Giants roster wasn't good enough to even prop them up. You could say Aaron Rodgers behind Favre was the Kansas City Model too.

All it means is you have an aging QB that you plan on getting rid of, but not just yet. So sit the kid behind him and let him learn instead of throwing him to the wolves. And it also means you expect the aging QB to still be competitive and help your team win, and once they've moved on, the young guy behind him picks up with a ready made team and takes them to the next level go forward.

I'm also going by Gettleman's statement that you need to find your franchise QB early, which to me means in top 10, and probably top 5.

There's a lot of off-season left. We could manage .500 with a strong running game. The Giants put up 40,37,35 in 3 of the last 4 games without Odell. I don't count the Titans game because I was in attendance that game was just miserable for both teams. I think some are really under rating what this team can be right now, because of the Odell Trade.

if Arizona is as enamored with Murray as we've all been led to believe, it could take more than the standard value deal to get them to trade down.

Personally I wouldn't mind drafting the kid, although it would be hard to swallow trading away so many picks when there's such a dearth of talent on this team. Oddly enough the height thing doesn't bother me, at least not as much as it bothers others. The game has changed a lot and I'm not going to pretend I know what would and wouldn't work. Kid is an incredible talent.
I wouldn't even negotiate with the Cards  
AcesUp : 3/14/2019 1:24 pm : link
Let alone get serious negotiating. If they're seriously entertaining the idea of trading out that means that they don't intend to draft Murray. Same principle applies to the axiom that "if you love a QB you do whatever it takes to grab him" applies to not trading out of a spot if your QB is sitting there. If they're entertaining, they're posturing and trying to leverage a trade down.

I'd call their bluff and target the Jets at 3 because I think the Raiders are the real threats. Our two firsts would get it done IMO.

I probably shouldn't have mentioned "KC model" because its not super relevant to my point. I was more so responding to a few of the comments above about taking Lock or Daniel Jones later in the first would be stupid. we have seen many successful qbs come from the middle of the 1st round. It would be a much more conservative play than going all out for #1. Just in general i think theyre in a really good spot to target someone they value highly that slips past 10 to move up from 17.

and yes DG did say the no guts no glory line which would indicate a top 5 move but he also repeatedly told us OBJ wasnt going to be traded so i dont know what to believe anymore.

In which case, the Giants engaging the Cardinals on Rosen is doubly useful. If the Cardinals are thinking of holding on to Rosen, the Giants will know they aren't going for Murray. If they are talking Rosen, they know they are serious about Murray, and potentially what it would take to pry the pick.

Sure, but if they really are set on Murray it could take more than the standard, which is already quite a bit, to pry the pick free. If they like him enough they may not even be willing to trade at all.

Conversely, if they are ready to roll with Rosen do you risk trading up to 2 or 3 instead of going all the way to one to save some picks? Or do you leave nothing to chance and ensure you get your guy? I'm guessing the latter.

I'd feel better about trading for Rosen. I liked him last year and it would leave you with more picks to build around him. Admittedly the ceiling isn't as high. It's easy to read too much into this stuff but the guts/glory comment and the Beckham trade does make it feel like they're getting ready to do something wild.

It wouldnít be a massive surprise if heís a Tannehil type of QB in the pros. Needless to say I wouldnít pass up Haskins, Murray or even Rosen for Fromm. Rosen has the potential of leaving football Iíve heard since he doesnít need the $ and doesnít want to risk long term health problems.

Matt: I hope youíre right, and I Love Murray. The problem is you canít trade OBJ as a first step to moving up in the draft unless you know you can move up. Otherwise if you canít ultimately move up, youíre left looking like a jackass. They must have numerous thoughts, 1 being moving up. If that doesnít work, maybe they are ok with just using the picks. Or maybe 17 will go towards a different QB, like Lock or Jones. I have no clue.

The reason Iím ok with the price it would cost to move up is two fold: 1) most importantly, Murray is unreal; and 2) while giving up a high 2nd round pick next year will hurt, we can easily recoup picks by trading down to a QB needy team next season. Miami will be picking towards the top of the draft, but other teams like Cincy, maybe Pitt, etc May want to vault into the top 3 to get their QBs. We could make a killing.

Frankly, DG can think whatever he wants about this roster. Itís awful. Mike Clay put out the metrics, and we are second from the bottom. He can shine it up however he likes, but itís horrid. We are a 2-14 team. I really believe that.

Right? Watching him, you have two contradictory facts screaming at you. The first is that he's a really, really good football player. The second is that he's just too small to be a really, really good football player.

I wouldn't be upset if they took a shot on him. At least it would feel like they're stepping out of their organizational comfort zone.

It's the type of "swing for the fences" move that this team needs to make. As much as I disliked the Odell move initially, if the extra picks allows us to get Murray then I will understand the motive.

He's so small but his arm/speed combo is pretty spectacular. We could have the best running game in the sport with Kyler/Barkley if we can finish up the OL, which will lead to openings downfield that Murray has the arm to exploit.

I'm so lukewarm over both Rosen and Haskins. I like Rosen a little more physically and Haskins a little more mentally, but neither guy seems special. I'm rooting for Kyler to the Giants at this point.

He's so small but his arm/speed combo is pretty spectacular. We could have the best running game in the sport with Kyler/Barkley if we can finish up the OL, which will lead to openings downfield that Murray has the arm to exploit.

I'm so lukewarm over both Rosen and Haskins. I like Rosen a little more physically and Haskins a little more mentally, but neither guy seems special. I'm rooting for Kyler to the Giants at this point.


It would be a gigantic swing for the fences... it would be one of the most conservative organizations in the NFL breaking the QB mold in a revolutionary fashion. Boom or bust.

That the Giants have too many holes to fix to use the assets for a Qb like Murray, well, if you think of it, you donít have a good team unless you have a franchise QB. So, if the Giants really believe in Murray, then who cares how many holes we have on the team. This will be a key building block for 2020. We will suck big time this year. But at least we have a future.

Boom or Bust is right. I keep picturing the word "instincts" as D. Gettleman is big on this facet of a player's game. Honestly, I believe Murray has that kind of talent or presence (call it instincts) but I'm not sure his body can hold up under NFL pressure. Especially if he tucks and runs a lot due to his instincts.

Look, if Murray is there at #6 (he won't be....) sure, how can you not take a shot at him? If Haskins is there at #6 (or Murray), I feel the Giants may just look to trade down if they can get extra picks. I say this because I see Gettleman as more of a "this is my board, these are my guys, and these QB's have too much risk to risk it..." kine of guy. I mean, if someone gives us a 9 - 13 area type pick plus next year's #1 for Haskins why not???

But I'm getting ahead of myself. I see us taking LB D. White at #6 assuming Bosa, Murray, Haskins, Allen, are all off the board and they likely will be...

D. White starts game 1 and I would NOT be shocked if he played at a probowl level as a rookie. Safe, solid, need pick all wrapped into 1. I hope a RT is there at #17, and round 2 maybe a WR or an OC.

100%. It would be uncharacteristic based on what we know about this franchise. But maybe they've realized that their conservative style has led to long-term mediocrity and it might be time to try something new.

I just don't want to waste Barkley, and I feel like the risk with Murray is worth the reward.

I don't think Shurmur is conservative and/or tied to the traditional coaching philosophies though. So if they defer to his opinion on the next QB, I could see him loving Murray assuming he passes the blackboard test.
One other point as we see this  
Matt in SGS : 3/14/2019 3:13 pm : link
and I"m curious as we keep an eye on Eli's contract. At the end of the season, remember that Eli went into Gettleman's office and Gettleman told us "he took me to the low post and won. " And had a "no holds barred" conversation.

This is very non-Eli like. And I'm sure that we won't be told about the context or content of this discussion until maybe after Eli retires. But based upon the moves the Giants have made since. All the trades. All the moves to get more picks, finishing in the Odell trade, it's not out of the realm that Eli went in and told Gettleman

- I want to try to win, so I'm not in it for a tank job (which Mara will never try to do, sometimes the team just stinks).
- Get me an offensive line so I don't get killed back there (which is what we've seen with the Zeitler trade and looking to find a right tackle)
- And this is the most speculation and that's why I want to see his contract situation. Would Eli tell Gettleman that this is his final season and he's done. So start thinking about finding my replacement.

The last point is the most critical to me, and I said it above. Prior to the past few weeks, we have never seen any sources around the Giants really indicate that they are trying to find the successor. Gettleman starts openly talking about "the KC Model". Even last year, as the Giants did meet with Mayfield, Darnold, Rosen, etc. You never really heard any talk from the team about replacing Eli. In hindsight, the Giants did their due diligence with the QBs, but the real reason they did so was only if the Browns took Barkley. Once they passed on him, it was a no brainer for Gettleman to take him.

But so far we've heard Carl Banks talk about the Giants putting the QB of future on the team this year. Carl goes off script sometimes, but he also will provide the company line. The message to that I'm getting, the signs I'm seeing, is that the Giants are going to get a QB. And if everyone is lukewarm on Haskins and friends, the only one who makes sense for that kind of impact is Murray.

I'm on-board with your thinking. Loved watching Murray perform at OU this past year. The most dynamic offensive player I have ever seen in college. But the risk side of the risk-reward equation is too high for my liking to make an aggressive move up in a trade.

This is a rare, rare year loaded with defensive talent. One of the best in long, long time. We should capitalize on that pool first...

I dont expect them to trade up into the top 5 but i wouldn't rule out a trade up from 17 when they see a guy they like start to slide. Everyone likes to throw out the "Kansas city" model sarcastically but this is would be similar to them moving up for Mahomes @ 10. a qb at 17 may not scream franchise potential but weve seen plenty go top 15.



The "Kansas City Model" was actually used by the Giants in 1993. They had Dave Brown and Kent Graham behind Phil Simms. The plan was for them to learn under Phil and one of them would win the QB competition in 1994. The problem was, neither of those guys were any good and the Giants roster wasn't good enough to even prop them up. You could say Aaron Rodgers behind Favre was the Kansas City Model too.

All it means is you have an aging QB that you plan on getting rid of, but not just yet. So sit the kid behind him and let him learn instead of throwing him to the wolves. And it also means you expect the aging QB to still be competitive and help your team win, and once they've moved on, the young guy behind him picks up with a ready made team and takes them to the next level go forward.

I'm also going by Gettleman's statement that you need to find your franchise QB early, which to me means in top 10, and probably top 5.


Matt I think you put together the tea leaves about as good as anyone here.

I see alot of logic in what you are saying to how the Front office may be thinking. They decided on Eli and made a big move , if they decide that Murray is the guy they may pull the trigger. I think the package though you mentioned is huge (even moreso than weve seen when you compare the other deals). I think itll be a little less (not much less but a little less).

The other benefit of having our QB and still being terrible is that we will have the opportunity to a) draft another QB and trade Murray, b) trade the pick to a QB needy team to round out the roster.

If we have Murray and have an opportunity to draft Tua, Miami will give us their next 3 first rounders as Ross is in love with Tua.

The guy on the left is the 6' 3" Haskins. The guy on the right is the 6'1" Tua. The guy in the middle who looks like a middle schooler is the guy the OP wants to trade up to get:




And we have never seen a qb fail at the nfl level because he was too short. Thanks for playing tho.
Thanks for your usual "insight".

He'd be the shortest guy to take the field as a qb since Eddie Lebaron who was drafted in 1950 in the 10th round and retired in 1962. Now maybe Murray is so great that he'd be the guy to step in after nearly 70 years. At the very least, the Giants would need to install an offense around Murray which means keep him out from under center and play, as he did for OKU, almost exclusively out of the shotgun. That, in turn, changes your running game because you are now featuring the shotgun running game- delays, draws, jet sweeps with little play action which limits your star running back.

I don't think some of you recognize what a gamble it is to go up against 70 years of NFL history and build an offense around a guy who is basically the same size as some middle schoolers. It's a tough decision; if he busts, you are going to be a laughingstock. It would not surprise me to see him drop out of the first round or to have other qb's taken ahead of him.
My only concern with Murray is between the ears  
Go Terps : 3/14/2019 7:10 pm : link
To make this type of trade I think you have to be 100% certain about the guy.

I think Murray can definitely play, but he hasn't exactly covered himself in glory in the run up to the biggest professional day of his life.

I wouldn't make the trade.

Murray is in the same mold of Lamar Jackson in terms of running & most believe he has a far better arm. Murray + Barkley is very enticing to me, but yes it is extremely risky.
I know we need a QB of the future  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 3/14/2019 9:28 pm : link
but we have so many holes on this team. Those are too many premium picks.

Honestly, based on what's happened the past couple days...

I'd prefer the Giants roll with Eli this year, possibly even add a year and draft our replacement in 2020. The QB class in 2020 is outstanding.

Odds are... We should have a record that could warrant one of those QBs without moving up.

So... Keep building the line and the defense. Draft our guy in 2020

So youíd be comfortable investing the first pick in a 5í10Ē QB to be a runner in the same sense as Jackson?

Go Terps : 3/14/2019 9:54 pm : link
I would. With any pick I'm only looking at the next three or four years. This is especially true at quarterback, where it's only worth paying an elite player.

If I draft Murray I'm thinking I've got a guy for four years, and I'm not holding back anything he can do. If he gets to the four year mark and he's Mahomes, then I'll break the bank. Otherwise I move on.
OK

Saying the Eagles gave up a first doesn't mean anything what first is it? The Giants pick is just 4 away seeing if Ariz is not taking a QB and the Giants are.
