The latest rumor has the Lions sending the #21st pick along with their #34th pick and the #s 66th and 70th picks to Washington for the Skins #6 and #143rd (5th rd.). This would happen if the Faiders go QB, Denver would give the 21st, 56th, and 70th this year and next years no.1 to Det. for the #2 and they'll pick Johnson.

So what are the Skins getting out of this?

If I were Detroit, I'd stick with trading down to #4 and drafting Joe Thomas.
Build through the draft!

I realize we get a 2nd and 2 3rds to drop from 6 to 21, but that's a long way to drop in the first round to get it. I'm of a mind that you take premier players and build around them to go to Super Bowls, not a bunch of adequate ones. I'd like to trade down in the top 10 and take a DL, but not to 21.

I don't know - New England has been pretty successful without a bunch of 'superstars'. I'd argue only Tom Brady qualifies as a superstar on that team, and the rest of those guys are merely pretty good. I'd be very tempted to drop from 6 to 21 for a 2, and 2 3s. That's of course assuming you have enough faith in the personnel department to find some good prospects to spend those picks on.

Giibs won three SB with a bunch of good players and just a few great players. Right now he has the few great players, but he doesn't have the group of good players behind them.

I'll put it another way. He has about the same amount of grade A players, but he is real thin right now at the grade B type players. This team could really use a late firat round pick, a second and 2 high thirds more than it could use a top ten pick! We have enough play makers we just need a bunch of very good play stoppers. Lets face it we need two starting DL, a starting safety, a CB, a starting guard, some more depth at OL, and depth at TE and WR.

I would use those four first day picks on two DL and any combo of OG, S, CB, WR, or TE.

We should do the trade because of New England?

I agree with the both of you, but I would add that Seymour, Dick is a superstar (and funny written that way!)

Funny, my thoughts exactly on your post. The Patriots are GODS!!!!! Once again a chance to bring that up. There are 31 incompetent teams, one saintly one that never errs. All discussions would address what the Patriots would do.

Got it.

Exactly right. Lots of Grade A players are wasted surrounded by Grade D teammates, and never win a Super Bowl. Barry Sanders comes to mind.

If the only knowledge you can post about the Lions is implying trades like this would have fixed the issue with Barry Sanders being their only "star" then this conversation just got way to pedestrian for me.

I put a huge madden type post on here last night but truthfully If we could simply trade are first to New England for their two first's or to Atlanta for their 1st and 2nd we could get two good starters for our defense something like:

New England

Pick 1: Jarvis Moss
Pick 2: Aroun Rouse

Atlanta

Pick 1: Okoyie
Pick 2: A saftey or DE
