5 - Imagine the NFL's jealousy when we trade Cassel for something good when we already have 1,2,2,3,3 (including Samuel comp pick).
6 - Jets are screwed. When Favre retires they have Kellen Clemens and a new QB search.
I doubt we have that much, but we're still looking decent going into the draft. Lets root for Denver next week!
Sure we have that much.
We have our own 1,2,3. We have SD's 2. We'll get a comp pick 3 for Samuel. That's 1,2,2,3,3. And that's without getting anything for Cassel.
When you put it this way, pretty incredible... just imagine if we get a 2 in 10 & 11, for Cassell.. that is a lot of building blocks..
A healthy Brady and all those picks - Yikes, this team is looking to be scary good over the next 3-4 years, and then a force for a long time.
Not to mention whatever off season transactions they work this year.
Thinking about San Deigo's #2. We gotta be huge Broncos fans this weekend. There is going to be a HUGE difference in where that second round pick will be from if they are 7-9 and out of the playoffs and 8-8 and the AFC East Champions. Depending on who wins next weekend, it could be as low as the 11th pick in the second round if the Chargers lose.
Thats right, I have to be a Bronco's fan as well as a Jets fan this week. Sunday is really going to suck
I'm still learning the "game" since I didn't grow up with football.. What will the Pats most likely do with their draft picks?
How badly do the Pats, JEST, and LOLphins all have to play for the Chargers to win the division?
Seriously, though, if the Chargers make the playoffs, they drop from the 7-9 tier to the bottom of the 8-8 tier, NOT to 21st overall. Unless they make the Super Bowl, they will pick before every team that finishes 9-7 or better.
If they were the Redskins, they'd trade them for magic beans.
Seriously, though, the most likely scenario is that they'll trade at least one of them into 2010, unless they can get a good package of picks in 2010 for Cassel. Most of the rest will probably go to shoring up the defense, with a couple of picks on offense. Kinda like this year.
Actually there isn't THAT much of a drop as making the playoffs doesn't affect the draft position unless you make the SB :
Looking at the current order :
Great Blue North Draft Report
It looks like the pick will be between 11th and 17th. So it would help but not THAT much. I think I'm rooting for SD to be honest. I think they're the better team and at least it's a team in the playoffs that beat us as opposed to another that we pummeled but still made it in. Also SD has a better chance to beat Indy than Denver does.
I believe the rules for determining draft order only apply to the first round. After round one, the order changes. That makes it even harder to figure out where that #2 will be.
Come by the Draft Forum and observe the family feud.
Your first two statements are correct, the third is not.
Simply put--all teams tied at a given record form a "band" (the NFL's term). Within each band, the team that had the first pick in round 1 has the last pick in round 2, and every other team moves up one slot. Continue the cycle for the remaining rounds. So if it's, say, BUF-HOU-SD in round 1, it's HOU-SD-BUF in round 2, SD-BUF-HOU in round 3, etc.
So, right now, the Pats have pick #44.
If I'm reading it correctly. As long as the Chargers don't make it to the Super Bowl, the pick likely will be anywhere from the 11th to the 17th in the second round or 43rd-49th overall.........
Right and it will likely be the second last pick within the tied group as SD has a strong SoS which would put it last in it's first round group and second last in it's second round group.
