This FO really seems to make some moves and pick up extra picks. That said are they in a position where they could move a guy like Flynn or some of their current picks to acquire some other picks?
First is Flynn. Now Alex Smith got moved to a KC for their 2nd round pick and a mid round pick. Is Flynn worth a 3rd pick to one of the teams at the at the top half of the draft that could use a QB like the Jags, Raiders, Browns, Cards, Bills and JEts?
Second, could the Hawks not be enamored by anyone in particular in the late first round and trade out of it? The dolpins have 2 2nds and 2 3rds. I know it isn't really accurate but could the Hawks give up their 25th pick worth 720 points for the Dolphins 42nd pick worth 480 and their 77th pick worth 205?
Maybe the hawks hve to give up some or all of their 6th and 7th round picks to make these 2 things happen but if they did their draft order would look like:
2nd-11th and 26th
3rd-10th(using trade with Jets), 15th and 25th
5th-5th and 25th
6th-maybe give up
7th-maybe give up all 3
That is still 8 total picks with all in the 2nd-5th rounds in a draft with very little in the way of elite prospects but with a lot of depth. Then with those picks could we see a draft of:
11th pick in the 2nd-Datone or Short
26th pick in the 2nd-Lemonier
10th pick in the 3rd-swope or Bailey
15th pick in the 3rd-travis kelce
25th pick in the 3rd-Zavier Gooden
26th pick in the 4th-Jordan Mills
5th pick in the 5th-Denard Robinson
25th pick in the 5th-Matt scott
If we have any late round picks maybe pick up a Safety and/or Corner.
To be fair, for the mock part of it I basically looked at Kearly's different mocks and put in some of the guys. This mock is actually near identical to Kearly's what he thinks will happen mock. I just felt some of the guys he put in that mock were going to be off the board at the original draft picks.
Anyways, the point mostly was with this FO anything is possible and they don't seem to follow conventional wisdom. I am hoping for lots of trading around.
