A king's ransom for who exactly? I need a name. Joe Burrow isn't in this draft.
NFL teams showed surprising restraint last year for the first time maybe ever by not drafting a bunch of 3rd rd QBs in the 1st rd.
There is no one in this draft worth the #1 pick. There is a reason when the Bears secured the pick, immediately the talk was to trade down.
It only takes one, however, teams are wising up a bit as their is a recent track record of trading up for the franchise QB and it not working out.
Then you have to look at the teams and where they are positioned.
CHI - DL/ED
HOU - Bryce Young
AZ - CJ Stroud (Prime position to move down imo)
IND - Will Levis
SEA - DL/ED
I could see a ATL, CAR, or TB moving up to 3 to take Stroud. Which will not cost as much as moving all the way up to #1. Especially in a draft that doesn't have that Manning, Elway, esque prospect.
Seattle has the draft ammo. Do you want to see them move up for these QBs?
