Upcoming draft and Quarterbacks
« on: January 01, 2020, 12:17:54 pm »

Just for discussion would a team with an older QB (Green Bay, New England, San Diego, NO) trade up to get one of the top college QBs?

I think it's a possibility that one of the incoming QBs could flourish watching and learning from a Rodgers or Brady, then, as Rodgers did following Favre, step in as the starter in a year or so. Maybe less in Brady's case.

Discuss.

Why would they do that ELi is available.

If I am a GM preparing for the future, why would I get Eli, who is done. He might be good to mentor a rookie QB who management expects to be the starter (Mayfiled). But not behind Rodgers or Brady.

The main problem is value;  in order to trade up for a pick, you'd have to give up too many assets.    The true high picks have really disproportionately high values, even though NFL teams flub them pretty regularly.

Few thoughts.

One, the OP discusses Aaron Rodgers, and he wasn't selected until pick 24. GB didn't even have to trade and they got the 2nd overall qb in the draft (well, Matt Jones from Arkansas was drafted ahead of Rodgers...). So, it's not like the discussion is mandated as a top 3 overall pick situation.

Two, it depends on how confident you are in your evaluation and how much confidence the team ownership has in your ability to evaluate. If you are absolutely certain you have a franchise qb and the organization trusts in your vision, then yeah, go for it. KC traded up to get Mahomes despite having a winning and a top 10 QB in Alex Smith.

Lastly, not every team with a high end QB is picking at the bottom of the draft. Detroit has a well established QB in Stafford but they sit at #3. Rivers has been a perennial top 5 QB with the chargers but is getting older and they draft #5. Newton is getting injured more and more frequently and they draft at 7. Big Ben in Pittsburg might be on the short end of his career and they draft at 18. GB, NO, and NE don't have finalized picks yet, but there's often still good qb's available in the 20's and going from 20 to say 11th doesn't require you ransom away your future.
