With talks of trading down and potential trade partners for what will be available at #6 some possible suitors would be Eagles at 15 targeting Tannehill or Defense, Jets at 16 targeting a pass rusher , Bengals at 17, 21 targeting T Rich, and the Patriots at 27, 31 targeting a pass rusher.
If the Rams did have all of these teams offering to trade up, which would you prefer to deal with?
Here is what each team will be offering:
Eagles - 1st , 5th, Samuel
Jets - 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Bengals - both 1st's
Patriots - both 1st's, 6th
If you trade with any of the 1st 3, you don't fall too far in the draft and you can still target good players who play a position of need. You could be looking at top tier WR, DT, CB and some great OL players. So that is still attractive.
With the Eagles you get an NFL ready talent and solidify your corners for the near future. The Jets keep you in the middle of the 1st as well as give you a pick in the middle of the next two rounds. The Bengals give you two picks in the top 21. Will the players you were targeting fall to 17 and 21? or do you end up reaching for players you could take at 27 and 31? Making the Patriots offer looking pretty appealing.
