We’ll see. I called the Carolina/Moore trade. I could be wrong, but I saw the current Jets brass make similar Draft day decisions. It’s not out of line, considering what the Jets gave up to Minn, to trade up to the middle of the 1st round in ‘21.
The Bears are still holding a top 10 pick…
I don't mind the trade down idea it's the value of that was enough to get Detroit off their #6 without the future. I didn't look at the future but that included might be enough to move them up to #5 because without the future it was well over the #6.
If that valuable of a player is at #9 we need him no matter what position it is.
That trade would probably take our top 3rd with no futures or low rounds from either team. The premium they pay is the talent difference turning their 2nd into our 3rd.
The example you gave is Vikings got 1180, Jets got 1134.5 going by this year's chart which isn't overly accurate because of comps.
What you offered us was about 300 over value without the future. If you dropped the 2nd to their 3rd and no future for our 9 it would be 20 over and that would be more reasonable.
Hard to say because of player value but we lost 10 on the trade down. They won't quibble over 10s - 50s for the right deal. They will quibble over 100s.
