  • Draft Day 1 Trades Explained

    Since so many people are freaking out, we should at least know what we actually traded and what we got in exchange.

    Between the two trades we ultimately gave the 25th to move to the 36th and got the 101st in exchange.

    I'll explain.

    1. We traded the 25th to move to the 31st and got the 126th pick in exchange from the Pats.

    2. We traded the 31st to move to the 36th and we also traded the 126th that we got from the Pats in exchange for the 101st.

    So as I stated earlier, we basically gave our 25th to move to the 36th and got the 101st in exchange.

    Disapointing Denver gave their biggest enemy for the next few years the second best linebacker in the draft for virtually free..

      Should've told Bill "your late 2nd this year or a 2nd next year or no Hightower"

      You don't make it easy for that team to make their D that much better

      ANYONE consider this?

            The Ravens gave the 29th to move to the 35th and got the 98th in exchange.

                Could have been better value but I think everyone knew we wanted to trade down more than they wanted to trade up. Either way we pick 4th tomorrow and there are plenty of first round talents still on the board courtesy of several first round reaches. Can't wait until tomorrow.

                    I don't care... Yeah, the value isn't the best, but you guys would have been happier if we had stayed and drafted player A at 25 than if we trade back, grab an extra 4th, and draft player A at 36.

                      I just wish we would've talked with the Vikes. We would've been better off getting what they gave the Ravens for their 29th than what we ended up getting for our 25th. Hopefully they learn from in for tomorrow.

                        yep, right here is what makes you wonder. People have said, if the FO could have got something better they would have. Hmmmm . . . 29 to 35 for the 98th. That sounds a lot better.

                          I'm perfectly fine with trading down. The Pats have done it successfully for years. I don't like the fact that we looked stupid after the Ravens Vikes trade went down, though. It just made it look like either they are really good negotiators or we were just bad negotiators or both.

                            Yeah you're right I'm sure we got that offer and then just said no, screw ya'll, we're taking a worse deal.

                              We have 3 4th rounders now, with one of them being pretty early.

                              So look for us to use those to move the early 4th to a 3rd, imo.

                              I'm excited for tomorrow
