Trade Down Potential Takes a Hit.

There has been a lot of speculation regarding the Lions chances of trading down out of the # 2 spot and still getting a very high draft choice. Those chances may be severely diminished with the news that Seattle traded for a QB prospect.


Seahawks acquire QB Charlie Whitehurst from Chargers for 2011 3rd-rounder and the swap of 2010 2nd-rounders

Seattle signed him to a two year $10M contract. I don't recall much about this guy but he was chosen in 2006 with the # 81 pick. Seattle is moving back twenty spots this year [# 40 to # 60] and giving up a potential mid third round or lower pick in 2011. It seems like Seattle is hedging its bets regarding the drafting of one of the top two guys this year. And without Seattle in the mix, there is almost no pressure on Washington to move up if they were interested in a QB and were afraid someone would snatch him at # 2.

I never thought the chances were very good that we would be able to trade out of the # 2 spot and in my opinion they are almost zero now. We will see.
