Would You Do A Reverse Julio Jones Trade?

In 2011, we traded up from 27 to 6 for Julio Jones. (IMO, it worked out fantastically well)

Would you make the following trade?

We trade our #8 pick with, say Dallas.

In return, we would get:

  • The #27 overall pick
  • The #60 overall pick (2nd round)
  • The #127 overall pick (4th round)
  • Dallas' first rounder next year
  • Dallas' fourth rounder next year

I honestly don't know...

Nope. You should keep your best players. Besides, no one is giving up that much for any current player unless it's a QB. Draft picks are always worth more because of the potential.

You may get 2 1st rounders, but we aren't getting that much for any 5 year vet.

What player was proposed as trade bait?

You'd definitely have to consider it.

Depending on who is there at #8, the FO may want to defer their pick and trade back. Or they may stay put because there may be a guy like Ray or Dupree at #8 who they covet. We just don't know their draft board rankings.

Say if they did make that trade:

-Harold/Odighizuwa at #27

-Linebacker in the 2nd

-Defensive Back in the 2nd

-Guard in the 3rd

-RB in the 4th

-WR in the 4th

Of course you could rearrange those positions/rounds differently than how I did, but basically an extra 2nd and an extra 4th would really help cover a lot of our needs. Not to mention that in your scenario we'd have an extra 1st and an extra 4th rounder for next year.

Falcons have high picks in early rounds...Dallas could win the SB if we give up #8.

Franchise Qb, WR, pass rusher, and possibly Gurley or a pass rusher they can afford to draft...they took Hardy.

We get nothing for 2 losing seasons...you have to tank.

Dallas can't win a playoff game but pick 8 is going to win the Super Bowl for them?

10 times out of 10 I'd do that trade. Without any hesitation at all. It makes it a 2-year rebuild, but the truth is it's probably that anyway, and all we lose is the 8th pick? One player to get 5, including two first rounders and a second?

Yes. Pull the trigger before they come to their senses.

I don't know, the Browns proved that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Just about all their picks that were involved with the Julio trade are no longer on the team.

I would consider the deal, but only if I'm confident in the FO making good use of all those picks and not end up kicking yourself in the end because you passed up the chance to get a really good player, and instead ended up with mostly a bunch of nothing.

I would do that and celebrate.

Why make that deal with a team in your own conference?

This is flawed thinking.

A draft pick (who demonstrates the potential to be good) is worth less than a player who has demonstrated that he already is a good player.

To paraphrase Aristotle, actuality supersedes potentiality.

Now, there is some algebra to it; a pro bowl SS may not be worth two first-round picks, but a pro bowl quarterback definitely is.
