I am representing POD on the milehighreport.com live mock on Sunday. Since it is a deep draft, I wanted to offer a contingency trade that deviated from the standard draft trade value chart in an attempt to stockpile more picks in the early part of each round.
The contingency is that IF SUH is taken #1 overall...
- We will trade with a top 7 team for a 1st and 2nd
- We will trade with a 8-12 team for 1st, second, and 3rd
My thought is that the draft is SO deep that we will get a GREAT player anyplace in the top 12, and be able to add more good players in the second and third. If with a top 7 team, we can still get Berry, Haden, or Okung (in alphabetical order). If with a top 12 team, we can still possibly get one of those 3 OR Bulaga, Trent Williams, or Kyle Wilson (also in alpha order)
Without giving away my 2nd round targets, I think the Lions would do either of these deals. Since we are a family here, dysfunctional as it may be, I wanted to open up some dialogue to seek your feedback. Of course, it is only a 3 round draft, so it didn't do me any good to acquire picks in rounds 4-7, so I didn't bother to ask for them.
OK, lemme have it gang!
