Let me paint the picture, for you, before I pose the question
Draft night is here. Goodell announces the Bengals are on the clock. The pundits make it sound like there is a decision looming at #1, but we know there isnít. After a few minutes,
Burrow goes #1. During the hat and jersey ceremony, Rapoport comes on the air speaking about buzz about some teams trading up to 2, for a QB, as well as 3 is in play.
Miami deals up from 5 and selects Tua
Rapoport comes back on talking about how the deal was in the works since the combine, but heated up in recent weeks. Watch out for 3, because you Tua and Burrow arenít the only QBs that are coveted. A few minutes passes,
Raiders deal up from 12, to #3 and selected Herbert.
Here we are. The unthinkable has happened. Chase Young has fallen into our laps. That Washington win didnít cost us after all!
Gettlemanís phone rings. A team, perhaps the Jets or Colts, are interested in dealing up for Young. The offer is their first this year, along with their 2nd and a 2nd next year. They wonít budge on a 1st rounder next year.
Are you missing out on Young for the extra draft capital? Whatís the least you would take to deal down to the 11-20 range?
While I donít see the above happening, I wouldnít discount the chances that there is movement above us, which could create some hysteria. With the amount of teams needing QBs in the 5-9 range, teams could fall back and still get supreme talent at positions of need.
