Exactly.  He traded up a lot.  Sometimes it worked great but sometimes it didn’t and we had less lottery tickets to work with.  Douglas understands that you need as many picks as possibly.  He made a brilliant gamble with Mims and gained a lot more draft capital 

And coming from the Ozzie Newsome tree, he understands that trading down at certain times makes it possible to trade up later.  It doesn't have to be either/or.  It can be both, in some drafts.

Ok who did it  

Next person who thinks it’s cute to even hint at the pick is going away for three moths.  This happens once a year, it’s something we all can enjoy from home, so knock it off or your gone.

I’m not sure why it’s so hard to under stand this. 
 

Before the trade we had 5 picks left in the 2020 draft a 3rd, a 4th, a 5th and 2 6ths. 

After the trade we have 6 picks in the 2020 draft, 3 4ths, a 5th and 2 6ths. 
 

We netted 1 pick in the 2020 draft and a 6th in the 2021 draft to move down 20 spots. 
 

 

Thank you. I feel like JD doesn’t understand this.. like a lot of posters

I agree, but why do I get the feeling Davis is going to be one of my favorite players on the team in no time 

Only reason I didn't give him a higher grade is because of the talent on the board I liked more.  I'm sure he's going to be a player we end up liking a lot.

The trade value chart has the 101 pick at 96 points. The 125 and 129 total =90. And the 6th rounder (next season) is between 18.2 to 4.6 and on average about 10. 

Yes, but there should be a pretty heavy discount for the year wait.  Rule of thumb is one round which would put in the 7th or worth around 1 point.  I think the guys they were targeting (think they may have been hoping for Peart) were gone, so they moved.  I'm fine with it.

Everyone here better hope JD hits on everything he is drafting from rounds 2-4 then. This board will blow up next offseason if even half these guys dont make any sort of impact. 

Well so far he has done a damn good job.  rounds 4-6 are unpredictable but have 6 more picks helps tremendously

You are wasting your time with that 1. He was asleep during math class.

You can joke all you want. You will just continue to look like a fool for not understanding math... like at ALL. 

If I have a dollar and you have 2 dollars, and we exchange our money. How much do you have?

If the talent we like at 101 is likely available at 125, it's not a worthwhile critique.

Much like JD seemingly having a good pulse on the board by moving down and still getting Mims, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on the 2nd trade down.

We also might come back up to the early part of the 4th round.

I remember when people wanted us to trade up to get Mims, instead we traded back and still got him and an extra pick..

Staying put and forcing a pick you don't love or taking a player you think can fall is dumb. 

Mims was a good trade. But that’s separate deal from NE ONE..

Yes how are people not viewing it like this? 
We had a 3rd rounder. 
We gave that up to move back 20 spots. 
We got an extra 4th to do so. 
That's a net gain of +1 not +2. 

You’re so wrong dude. 2 4th round picks

Nope. 2 4ths from NE and 6th next year

What dont any of you understand? 

We gave up our 3rd rounder to do that, which means we didnt net 2 "extra" 4th rounders. We exchanged two picks, and gained 1. 

That 2021 6th means nothing.

Which was in the 3rd round 

We gave up the late 3rd Seattle comp pick (101) in exchange for two 4th rounders (125 and 129) and a 2021 6th.

And thus we gained 1 pick this year. To drop 20 or so spots.

Rog is thrilled this is over

The evolution of his name from Goodell to Roger to Rog, mirrors the evolution of his draft night posture: standing formally, sitting at attention, reclining in his club chair

No dude. You’re wrong.  Before the trade we had 5 picks left in the 2020 draft.  After the trade we have 6 in the 2020 draft.  We only netted 1 pick this year. 
 

Good grief.

And we didn’t pick at 101.......

 

Yes thats correct. We netted 2 extra picks, one in the 4th this year and another in 6th next year. Any extra picks can be valuable assets especially for a team looking to fill holes.

I'm not wrong at all. Thousands of years of human math and science back me up. 

Please let me know the moment it dawns on you.
