Teo looked like a kid out there in the Championship game, plus his off the field antics, No thanksQuote:
It is possible that the problems Teo has had could pay dividends for us. I am not proposing that WE select him, but...
The Bengals also need help at LB, and they own two picks in the second round (37 and 53). If Teo drops to 20, would it be worth it for us, given the multiple needs in areas with good depth in this draft, to trade out of the first all together and get both their 2nd round picks? Our pick at #20 is valued at 850 on the Value chart, and their two seconds would equate to 890, which is close, but certainly gives us an edge. They may also want us to throw in our 5th, but I would play hardball and go ahead and use our own pick in the first if they don't like it. The end result would leave us with 3 second round picks. The first of the three would be a little worse than our 1st round pick, but we get a pick back that is higher up to make up for the lost 3rd round pick. We then end up with 3 picks in the top 53 as opposed to just two. What would you do?
Just for the record, in a normal year, I would not do this, but given the depth of O-Line talent in this draft and our lack of a valuable 3rd rounder, I think I would pull the trigger.
