    Every team is in a different situation. What's right for one is wrong for another. Maybe a team that's missed out on their primary target has another player in mind that will be available a bit later. If so, not taking the extra picks would be mismanagement.

      Trades are going to happen but your math is off on this one. Way off.

      If Beane goes fishing he’s going to have to bring better bait to get BTJ than what you proposed.

      The value chart would have us giving up all 7 of our rounds 4,5 and 6 picks to barely move up to 20. Higher than twenty and those picks aren’t even enough.

      Would a team take all of those lower picks as opposed to 1 or 2 more premium picks? That in and of itself is debatable. I doubt it.

        You're right. Had the glasses off on that one.

          A lot of teams considered Josh Rosen and Zach Wilson “1a” players. And no team thought enough to draft the GOAT until the 6th round. You just never know who’s going to turn out so take as many players as you can and don’t trade multiple “opportunities” for one you think will be better.

            Agreed but with a qualifier. I’d want to stack the odds in my favor.

            70% of HOFers have come from rounds 1-3 those are the rounds I’d want to accumulate picks in.

            After that it’s greatly diminishing returns.

              We might need an upgrade in our scouting department.

                This is about what it would cost to move up high enough to gat one of the top three WR’s, it’s not a bunch of day three picks!

                The cost is way too much for this team!

                  That would be heinous misconduct on Beanes part.

                    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't even a little worried.

                      I don’t blame you. It might depend on whether or not Beanie is feeling the heat to get over the hump? I know in my bones that McDermott is on the hot seat…if Beane is as well then he might rip some whacky deal like this out of desperation.

                        Yeah, the thought of making this kind of trade would be almost criminal!

                          Many adjectives would work, criminal, asinine, idiotic, moronic, ludicrous, ridiculous, foolish, sophmoric, dare I say malevolent?!

                              Indeed. I’m still holding out hope that we score a third round pick so that round is more entertaining for us.
