    I don't remember hearing about this specific scenario last year, but if you ever needed more proof that the trade chart is a relic, read here:

    In sum, Kansas City offered the #3 pick to Detroit for #20 and #33. Detroit said no.

    Maybe it was more about the money?

    Could they afford to pay out two huge contracts?

    Just slightly off subject and a random question.

    Assuming GERALD MCCOY is on the board with the no.5 pick, would you trade first and 2 seconds (TEN,NE) to KC to get him ?

    Well, that's part of the whole point. Kansas City offered a deal in which they were giving away over 700 "points" under the trade value chart, and Detroit said "Thanks, but no thanks." Therefore "trade value" under that chart is pretty well useless, for financial considerations, as well as other reasons -- term length, roster management, etc.

    Thinking a rookie cap is coming next year may have several top 15 teams hoping to trade out for later picks this year or even for next year. And those that do draft in the top 15 will offer considerably less than was paid last year, pointing to next yr's potential rookie cap as negotiating power. I can see highly drafted rookies holding out for a long time as they point to last yr's draftees' salaries. It's going to be a real tug-of-war I think.

    I wouldn't give up #22 AND two seconds for anyone, period. Each of those seconds could nab a player that would have gone in the first round most years.

    I would like to get to the top of round 2 with one of our 2nds. Targeting 3 guys and making it happen with 4 picks.

    I like this idea as well. Trade our #22 for a second and a third round this year. Lot's of teams dumb enough to go for that. 4 second rounders and a low third would be soooooooooooooo sweet!:cool:
