That was from an article about teams trading up with the Raiders. They didn't mention us specifically, but we have been discussed recently.

We don't have a fourth round pick that is tradeable. I don't want to give up our second or third, but without including one of them we don't have the ammo to move up. I kinda want to see how the draft plays out and who we have a shot at with our own pick.



Which is why I suggested , if its the raiders, offer 5-4 + Pettigrew and get it done.

I've heard that more and more lately too. Fisher looked like the more solid pick after the workouts.

Fisher = Didn't play against Top Comp, but Over time likely slightly better prospect

Joeckel = Most Ready to start OT right now and Still great measurable/talent.

I see Joeckel as the better technician, and Fisher the better physical player that still has sound technique. For my money I like Fisher more. IMO his physical development means he's worked harder. I think it says something about his ego and work ethic.

I like Fisher over Joeckel at this point also, so can understand the Chiefs decision if he is it.

Agreed, but I can't say I'd be even a bit disappointed with Joeckel as our LT for the next decade. He'll at the very least be an occasional Pro Bowler.

I don't like his hollywood look. He looks like a pussy to me.

Our Only Move UP option IMO would be to trade Pettigrew to the Raiders. They had weak TEs last year, and let their #1 walk away. They currently don't have a starting TE on the roster, and that move could make sense for both teams. I don't know if I'd also be willing to part with a Pick though, and then wed have to replace Pett, although there are a few good TEs in the draft and If we got a real WR#2 we can use Heller for Blocking and Scheff for Catching. Its not like Pett has been great at either (hes ok at both imo).


Giving up a starting TE (who's pretty decent) to move up two slots seems like a lot. Maybe if we could move up and then also get the Raiders' 3rd round pick too.

Well, Fisher went #1. I'm hoping either Joeckel drops to the Lions, or they go with Ansah.

Yeah I was just about to say, so much for that. We'll see what happens now.

Please don't be Detroit trading up with Oakland. Don't do it.

Is Miami making the jump here?

Hopefully the Lions can get some kind of offer to slide back.
