OK, so apparently we are assured of a 5th in 2014 and a conditional 5th in 15. How flexible are these conditional picks, anyway? Anyone know the boundaries of a conditional pick? IE...if Flynn is named *SB MVP, what is the best we can hope for out of this trade?
I ask because I am unsure if it's wiser to root for, or against, our old AFCW nemesis. Not that we can actually influence any outcomes, but are we more hopeful that Flynn and the Raiders finish *0-16 (giving us 2 lofty 5ths) or are we hopeful they lose to us in the SB, and because Flynn was the *2nd best QB in the league, that conditional pick automatically becomes a *1st rounder?
* situations intentionally exaggerated (so save it).
