With an illness in the family, I haven't been able to fully read every post, which is bad for me because I learn an awful lot from many of you. Just today, I was reading one and then another and came across 62Lou's "Trading Down in 2011." Phintastic commented that he would love for Miami to trade down with San Diego for their two 2nd round picks AND their two 3rd round picks. Dolphinfan4lyfe then replied stating 4 picks may be too much. IT'S NOT TOO MUCH. Not according to the value chart. I know it's a closed post, but let's just dream and have some fun with it. Our #15 pick is worth 1050 points. The only 7 round mock draft that I could find was DraftTek.com so I checked SD's picks in round 2 - #50 (400 points) and #61 (292); round 3 - #82 (180) and #89 (145). Those four picks equal 1017. We are still due 33 points worh of a pick (maybe a couple of 7th's).
Think about it - we're not dropping WITHIN the 1st round - we're going from 15 all the way down to 50 (MAYBE). So, mathematically, that IS a realist trade. We could even ask for SD TWO 6th round picks #183 (19.2) and #201 (12) - they total 31 points.
Phintastic - WONDERFUL IDEA!!!!!! GO TELL TONY AND JEFF RIGHT AWAY . . . . .
Well, thank you all kindly for putting up with me. I appreciate it. Illness in the family is a terrible thing to go through and I'm glad I have you guys (gals) to share football dreams with.
