    i just said how I don’t want them to let this slip away, but I’m here arguing how much to give up lol

    truth be told I’d give up the farm for a fucking franchise qb

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Definitely fair in a vacuum. The question will be how many teams might be angling for that pick. If Tua is a hot commodity (and he should be, in my view), other teams may be trying to trade up to #3 or even #2. Like the Luck/RGIII or Wentz/Goff draft. Like those drafts, this draft has a Big Two for quarterbacks and a huge drop-off after them.

    You know what my concern is, Im always scared of how guys like Tua will do on an NFL team that cant protect them the same way their O-Lines did in college.

    So instead of M*****l B******s, we get Mr. Wolfe instead. I'm starting to think that this MAY be an annual thing where a former Bronco becomes a Raven and vice versa. Don't worry, you two Packers fans, he may only be with us for a season.

    We are looking for DT of our own. A run stuffing, 2-down NT to be exact. We'll see if that happens via trade or the draft.

    The thing that has to factor in is demand though. If no other team is willing to give up 2 firsts then your trade suggestion is pretty reasonable. If multiple teams are trying to move up to 3 (or 2 even) that is going to make the compensation much higher.

    Edit: I should've read further to see @Minstrel's post

    well not too many teams have more firepower in terms of picks to get it done

    You think Tua is worth it?

    Dude, you don't have to be subliminal about it. Just say you want Brandon Williams and call it a day. GOSH!

    A beast who should've NEVER played as long as he did before getting hurt against some no-name school. As long as he's healthy, I think he'll be fine.

    Its been a few months, but I heard one guy say best case scenario he plays in the nfl for 6-7 years before his hip is bad enough he can no longer play. It was supposedly some sports medicine guy. Now who knows if he knew what he was talking about, but without all the physicals and stuff, I really wonder if that scares anyone off.

    Haha. I didn't even think about him when I mentioned trade.

    Thanks for the heads up on one possibility. :cheers:

    Hard to tell without access to his medicals. If healthy I think he's by far the best QB in this draft but his injuries will probably prevent him from getting there.

    Without the hip thing I'd also take him over Kyler Murray.

    Lots of teams have future picks they can add too though.

    I was going to say Funchess is super overrated and was hurt all year last year after signing a big one year deal with the Colts but the terms of his contract with the Packers is pretty reasonable.

    Oh that seems pretty good. They really need outside help. I don't know what to expect from him, but I think that may end up being a good pickup.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    If healthy, I think he's probably the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck.

    And by "healthy" I mean "doesn't have a degenerative issue or something that will affect his ability to throw like before."
