  • could this happen to ATL/Brohm

    Does anyone think they could pull off a Cleveland this year? By that I mean, take McFadden with their 1st rounder, allow Brohm to fall because Woodson and Ryan will be ahead of him, and then trade their 2 2nd rounders and a future pick to get back into the 1st round and take Brohm?

    I don't see Atlanta trading up unless they really fall in love with Brohm, in which case they're stupid, or they get a great deal on the trade up.

      well pretty much every mock has brohm going to atlanta at #4...why not get brohm and mcfadden?

        I definitely think it's possible that they'd be intrigued with that manuever ... but I have a hard time seeing them move high enough (draft positioning) that they wouldn't have to deal up for McFadden, if they wanted him.

          I could see it happening. Atlanta has an extra 2nd Round pick to work with. One of the top three QB's (likely Brohm) should fall in the draft.

            my bad, i was looking at older mocks when ATL was at #4, didnt realize they were at #7 now.

            in order for this to work, theyd have to get in the top 4 picks and the jets need to take chris long.

            then theyd have to trade their 2 2nd rounders and possibly a future 3rd rounder to get in front of the Chicago Bears, who also need a new QB.

            the 2 2nd rounders (if theyre at #4 and houston is at 13) would equal 990 points. the #15 pick (Denver right now) is 1050 points. thats pretty equal, but i would think itd take an extra pick for a team to give up their 1st rounder, hence the extra 3rd round pick.

              Exactly, the falcons could take him at 4 because they already own that pick, i doubt they'd want to pay enough to move up to where they could pick him in the first, would probably cost them both seconds this year and a future first or second rounder for a team so far from being a legit SB team they need to keep all of their picks and add quality youth, worry about adding stars once the foundation of youth is there that will nurture your stars.

                but why take him at 4 when they could take him at 15...and take mcfadden at 4? if they go by the points chart, 2 2nd rounders is pretty much equal to the #15 pick. theyd have both brohm and mcfadden and with all the WR's theyve drafted in the past, their offense would be pretty much set except for the LT spot

                  If they actually want Brohm I don't think they can risk taking a strategy like that.

                    I brought this up about a month ago. Brohm falling doesn't look like a sure thing...but if it was to happen it would definately make sense. Depends on the thoughts of the organization.

                      I think Woodson is more likely to fall and might even find his way out of the first round. He blew the game today and has been extremely lackluster the past five games with the exception of the Florida one.

                        As others has said, right now we aren't in position to do that. Even though I would love to. Right now, we probably have to stay put, or trade down a couple of spots and get Brohm.

                          If you're going to try and finesse your way to getting Mcfadden and one of the top QBs i think you have to be open to bringing in Ryan or Woodson as well as Brohm. In that case you could try and make a move probably in the middle of round 1 to get it done.

                            Brohm won't fall that far. Assuming Ryan goes first, then you have teams like Chicago, Baltimore, and Carolina who'd die for a young QB next April and are probably kicking themselves for passing on the chance to get Brady Quinn or Kevin Kolb last year.

                              This what I have been wanting to happen for some time now. You could easuly swap a OT instead of mcfadden since thats a bug need.
