Nope - not Roy. Two words: Rashard Mendenhall. He is the "perfect" compliment to MJD in Dallas, and they would love to secure him. They have a pick at 22 and 28 in round one. Here is the trade (and it fits the value charts, and the needs of both teams) -- [don't go getting angry Cheif and Can -- it is only a scenario -- and how can you argue with an extra second? is Mendenhall worth 2 picks to the Lions?? I'm guessing Millen won't think so, and certainly not Marinelli)
Detroit pick #15 rd one (1050) and pick 161 rd 6 (22) - 1072 points
Dallas gives pick #22 in rd one (780) and 61 rd 2 (292) - 1075 points
Detroit may have to give them their 5th - 144 (34 points) for a total of 1084 for 1075. This is the scenario I will go with. So we have Dallas at 15 taking Mendenhall. the pick:
1 - #22:
2a - #45:
2b - #61:
3a - #76:
3b - #87:
4 - #111:
I think that is a realistic scenario, with Dallas still getting two picks in round one, but forfeiting their 2. I didn't go with a 3 because of how late their 2nd rounder is, it is about same value as a high 3 -- and I have the Lions giving them a 5th to get the deal done (something I am sure Millen would do to get an extra pick in rd 2)
Remember the rules: you can to a 1 and 1a draft, but only your "mock in rock" #1 counts. No further trades, try to be as close as you can to who will be available -- and a commentary on who you picked and why is always fun -- it shows who you think is gone, or might like them to pick but don't think will be there. I find the thought processes as actually more fun to read than who is being picked!
For those who haven't, be sure to post on scenario's #1 and #2. Go Lions!! Go Lions Fans!!
