Only an extra 1st and giving up a 3rd to move down 8 spots?

Pass.

Mr. Laz
04-18-2010, 01:22 PM
giving them that 3rd round back sucks ass ... if they want up there then they can just bend over and give us the two 1st rounders.

in fact we should trade down to 7 first and then take both of their 1st rounders after Cleveland grabs Berry.

They could leverage themselves right out of the trade. If they want to trade then that would be a mistake. If they really don't want to or are indifferent then fine leverage away. If it's like last year and Pioli knows who he wants then there's a good chance they'll reach and pick that player if a trade can't be made. We'd be better off making a deal close to value so we get the most out of the #5 pick.

This draft is really deep and there are going to be players that come out of it who end up being every bit as good as Berry. I like Berry and if we pick him great but I doubt he walks onto the field and looks like Ed Reed behind the Ravens front 7. IMO Berry has become way over valued around here.

Everyone was sold on Aaron Curry being Hall of Famer LB in the league. Not saying he isn't talented and will be really good some day, but it isnt like as soon as we draft Berry and he puts his laces on that he is going to look like a Pro Bowler.
The draft is a giant roulette table and you get lucky or you dont in many ways. I feel that the more picks we get the better chance we have at getting some decent NFL talent.
This hypothetical draft put together looks decent minus giving up our 3rd rounder. I can see SF giving up both of their first rounders and us floating them our 1st and a 4th or 5th rounder.

I will say that by saying "everyone" I should have stated a good portion of people on this board where on the Curry bandwagon and I do agree with you that is more than luck for sure, but it seems that all organizations make mistakes within the draft and doing all of your homework does indeed help overall, but it doesn't gaurantee you a successfull draft. There is a certain intrinsic factor with certain players that doesn't show up in research, combines, etc. and that is what I should have stated instead of "luck", but I do feel that "luck" in many ways plays a role and with my opinion of this draft I would rather have more picks than a supposed "gauranteed" player.

That's fine and I respect your right to this opinion.

But we're not winning a SB without elite talent, no matter how strongly our risk-averse GM preaches the "right 53."

And the best place to find truly special talent is at the top of the draft.

DE won't be the team's priority in the first two rounds.

Giants needs: MLB, OL or DT (second pick), RB, CB, S -- They need a MLB in the first round -- and LBs.

As for the rumor the Giants want Rolando McCain -- no once can convince me they would take a player who says he is an inside LB in the 3/4

I completely know where your coming from. I guess I am just not a 100% sold on Berry. If we ended up drafting him I would be good with it, but I guess personally I just feel since we have so many holes on this team I would just rather collect a few more picks that are just a few slots down...but hey I am just a weekend warrior when it comes to all of this draft intel that flies back and forth so ultimately who knows.

Yep.

I think the proper scenario is to roll the dice for the elite playmakers when you're bad enough to draft high, and get the solid players when you improve. Teams never let go of franchise quarterbacks and franchise pass rushers, and they only let go of franchise receivers when they're head cases.

So you have to get those guys when you're in a top-ten draft position, because you're not getting them anywhere else other than sheer luck.

I wouldn't mind this trade, but I am not too impressed with either of our first round picks in this mock. Thomas sounds like a typical player coming out of Texas to me: tremendous athlete that is still very raw with a lot of bad habits. He doesn't always wrap up and takes bad angles in pursuit. I would much rather have Berry.

The draft is a giant roulette table and you get lucky or you dont in many ways. I feel that the more picks we get the better chance we have at getting some decent NFL talent.
This hypothetical draft put together looks decent minus giving up our 3rd rounder. I can see SF giving up both of their first rounders and us floating them our 1st and a 4th or 5th rounder.

I'm sold on Berry and Clausen, but I, too, worry about the Curry factor. Curry was can't miss, and was maybe the 3rd best ILB. Dorsey was the #1 defense can't miss the year before. Chris Long was a stud top 5 pick. History shows us that mid-round players often times exceed the play of the "top 5" players that fans and coaches fall in love with. They turn out to be good players usually, but not the HoFers in their dreams.

So, even though it puts me in the minority here, and subject to abuse, I am open to a trade down.

As for value, we need to be realistic. If we had the two SF picks in the first round, would be give up two potential McClain/Graham/Williams/Thomas to move up to take Berry? There is so much Berry love on this board that many of you would say **** yes. I think that would be because we have been so focused on him that we don't give enough credit to the pro-bowl credentials of players in the mid-round.

The only player I'd give up two first rounders for would be a QBOTF (Locker) next year. I wouldn't do it for a super DT like Dorsey/Suh/McCoy. I wouldn't do it for a gifted ILB like Curry/McClain. Nor would I for a gifted Safety -- even Sean Taylor.

I hope, on reflection, you would agree. If so, then place yourselves in our trading partners shoes. Neither would they. So, before we think Pioli should get the moon and the stars for the chance to select Berry, ask yourself whether you'd do it as the other GM.

It may well be that we don't get a fair offer. If we don't, I'm content taking Berry or Clausen. I can get excited about either. If it is an OL, I'll rue that we did not trade down instead and take *anything* for our pick, as there are plenty of OL/RT available in the draft in the late round. I'll assume that, if Pioli makes the trade, it was because he was prepared to reach for someone other than Berry or Clausen, and it is just as well he traded.

kysirsoze
04-18-2010, 04:04 PM
I understand trading down to get picks because he have so many needs, but it is a flawed strategy IMO. If we fill enough needs to be mediocre, we will not have the draft position to get the top prospects. We should take the best talent available now. Then as they develop, we can work to gather picks and bring in a solid supporting class. It's not a win now sort of deal, but I think you need that foundation of truly elite players.

And FTR, even if I wanted to trade down there is no way in fucking hell I would be cool with the OP's deal. My lingering optimism towards Pioli would officially come to an end.

Good god, we've seen mediocrity for years upon years, and as a result, we as fans in general are simply happy with mediocrity.

Good organizations use the leverage they have to get great deals.

If Scott Pioli can't leverage a great deal, then he's every bit as mediocre as Carl.

I'm sick of accepting shit.

Yeah so I demand more in a trade then anyone will ever give. lol


So 250 points beyond what the value chart says isn't even a good deal in a trade down?

OTWP58's Super Bowl ticket analogy is perfect. The value of the ticket is what the highest bidder will pay for it. Otherwise, you enjoy the ticket and cross it off your bucketlist. Personally, I don't scalp Super Bowl tickets and say "Gee, I can afford to go to 5 college games with this money." If the 40-giners think Jimmy Clausen is their guy, they'll throw out the chart and pay up.

I would take it for both firsts and no 3rd to them... BUT I sure as hell wouldn't waste a pick on Davis... damn.

Thomas and Graham would be my picks, Thomas because I don't think he is much of a dropoff from Berry and Graham because he is definitely part of the "right" 53 and can be a HUGE motivator for the whole defense.

Lose out on one playmaker but get two... that is fair IMO... but I understand that some people don't share my opinion that Thomas is almost the same as Berry... if that wasn't the case... you simply don't make the trade... you take Berry or Clausen.

We still aren't taking Clausen so we might as well trade down for the 13 and 17.

Even if we have to give a 3rd or 4th.

All of the trade analogies (superbowl tickets , chevy for mercedes) that have been posted are ****ign worthless.

Superbowl Analogy: Yes we have superbowl tickets but our family is homeless and eating spam and top-ramen every night. You are saying we HOLD OUT for top dollar, way more than anyone would want to pay for the tickets...when our family needs to ****ing eat and pay bills. Stupid.


1 Mercedes for 2 chevies: This isn't true at all. The truth is it would be a CHANCE at a Mercedes for two slightly lower chances at Mercedes. If we don't win a mercedes, it might be a toyota or a chevy. But the thing is, our family has no car right now....So to not increase our odds would be stupid.


Please don't make analogies if you are too ignorant to do them properly.

Yeah, but taking Berry wouldn't make you the smartest guy in the room.

It's like making Braden Looper a starter when you already have Brad Thompson. Why use the guy groomed as a starter with an incredible track record in the minor leagues when you can do something that appears far more clever?

Why take the easy pick when you can reach for a 5-technique and/or trade down into irrelevance?

I like the pick of Thomas. After that, not so much.


9.Buffalo Bills: Bryan Bulaga OT Iowa
14.Seattle Seahawks: C.J Spiller RB Clemson
17.Kansas City Chiefs(From SF): Anthony Davis OT Rutgers
19.Atlanta Falcons: Sean Weatherspoon LB Mizzou
22.New England Patriots: Sergio Kindle DE/OLB Texas
23.Green Bay Packers: Brandon Graham DE Michigan

First if Dan Williams & Spiller are on the board when Buffalo picks I seriously doubt they take Bulaga.
If we took a bag of shit like Anthony Davis over the 3 linebackers you have going after him, I'll eat my hat.

26.Arizona Cardinals: Nate Allen S South Florida
If Nate Allen goes before Golden Tate, I'd be very surprised. I like Allen a lot, but he is not a 1st rounder.

Chiefs Trade 5th Overall Pick and 3rd Round Pick To SF For Their 2 First Rndrs

2a.Jerry Hughes DE/OLB TCU
2b.Brandon LaFell WR LSU
4. Arthur Jones DT/DE Syracuse
5a.Myron Lewis CB Vanderbilt
5b.Tony Pike QB Cincinnati
5c.Jordan Shipley WR Texas


If you took one of the LB's I mentioned instead of Davis, I would assume you would have a shot at Golden Tate.

Arthur Jones does not fit this defense. Tony Pike is a system QB and I don't think he'll be a good QB.

A few options at each pick, based on the trade you just suggested...
13 Thomas, Dan Williams, McClain
17 Graham, Kindle, Weatherspoon, Griffen
2a Tate, Demaryius Thomas, Hughes
2b Cam Thomas, may have to take him at 36. Nate Allen, Ghee, Burnett
4 Clay Harbor, Kam Chancellor, Spikes, Reshad Jones, Lang, Gilyard
5a, b & c = RT, C, BAA Olsen, Briscoe, Washington, Chaney, Angerer. I'd even take a flier on Danario Alexander with our last pick.

Regardless of what the "true fans" think, we aren't pressed into taking offensive line help and Pioli doesn't value them high enough to take them too early. If one falls to us then sure, but he won't reach on the offensive line. He'll reach all day on defensive line before he'll do that.

I heard it's basically a struggle between 2 draftees: Russell Okung and Eric Berry. There is a contingency in the Chiefs war room who feel Okung is a true elite guy. There is also a large contingency that is in love with Eric Berry. Now take this with a massive grain of salt. My source told me that he hears daily stuff and it could change in the blink of an eye.

The Chiefs love Berry for a lot of reasons. They've had him on their radar all year. Romeo spent a lot of time watching Tennessee this year because of his love for Monte Kiffin (I never knew they had any sort of relationship).

From Flowers working with Berry, to talking with him 3 times at the combine, to Romeo running his pro day, to him being the first visit on his tour, the Chiefs have shown an exceptional amount of interest in him. I don't know why all these facets are overlooked by draftniks, but rather Dimitroff candidly discussing a conversation, which was another smokescreen, gets all the press.

Todd McShay, who has connections, says he hears the Chiefs are well above 50/50 on taking Berry. Mike Lombardi keeps mocking Berry to the Chiefs. Say what you want about both guys, but they have connections to the Chiefs.

I trust my guy that it's between those 2. Now I'm just praying Washington trades Haynesworth to Detroit so that opens up Okung #2 and lets Berry fall into our laps.

I also want to know why this fan base always wants to trade down.

Because teams that have done so successfully usually create neccessary foundations for good, young teams.... If you just go back the last decade, the teams that trade up in the top 10 to take a coveted player often have their franchise set back, while the other team prospers.

Ricky Williams vs. Champ Bailey
Michael Vick vs. Ladanian Tomlinson

are just the ones that are what I remember. The draft seems to reward teams that either get extra mid-round value for their top picks or stay put, be patient and let players fall to them. How many #1 overall picks in the NFL right now are doing what we'd call an all-pro job?

Good player, bad bad bad team.

Lazy as fuck player. Questionable character as well.

The Browns defense got better when he got hurt.

We still aren't taking Clausen so we might as well trade down for the 13 and 17.

Even if we have to give a 3rd or 4th.

All of the trade analogies (superbowl tickets , chevy for mercedes) that have been posted are ****ign worthless.

Superbowl Analogy: Yes we have superbowl tickets but our family is homeless and eating spam and top-ramen every night. You are saying we HOLD OUT for top dollar, way more than anyone would want to pay for the tickets...when our family needs to ****ing eat and pay bills. Stupid.


1 Mercedes for 2 chevies: This isn't true at all. The truth is it would be a CHANCE at a Mercedes for two slightly lower chances at Mercedes. If we don't win a mercedes, it might be a toyota or a chevy. But the thing is, our family has no car right now....So to not increase our odds would be stupid.


Please don't make analogies if you are too ignorant to do them properly.

This has been a public service announcement.

First, I didn't do any of the analogies, so why the hell are you talking to me about it?

Second, I didn't say we would be taking Clausen.
I'm on reecord with my belief that we won't.

What I'm saying is that those guys are who teams will be trading up for.

We can either take the elite prosppect, or trade out of the spot so that the team trading up can take him or Clausen.

But since we're sitting there with those guys on the board, we hold all the cards.

Sorry, I shouldve quoted the people who posted the lame analogies to make that clear that it wasn't you..

I agree we are holding MOST of the cards, but not all of them....as a trade requires a partner. I am pretty skeptical that we will be able to pull it off, but trading down a few spots could be beautiful.

ANd I do agree with the jist of what you are saying....If they don't wanna give us a fair price for the #5 overall, they can fuck off.

Just so you are not reassured too much.....I've heard basically the same version with minor tweaks about trading down from 3 totally different sources.



You reassure me RIGHT NOW you sonofabitch!!!!:cuss::D

Seriously, tomorrow can't start and end soon enough.
