BPA- running to the podium for the other OT...or a CB. Likely too early for a DT.

I think you read it wrong. The 2nd trade involved us moving from 12 back up to 8.
I'm commenting on one trade. It's not a bundle. One isn't guaranteed by the other. In the first trade, there is not only no tangible benefit this year, but significant payment going to the team with lower picks. That is beyond stupid to me.

Which tackle are you moving to guard?

I probably keep Paris at RT and have Fash start his career at LG before moving out.

I don’t think you make the first deal unless you have the trade back up already in place.

Who plays LT in this scenario? Has the play OT and OG and then move to OT scenario ever worked? (real question)

Lol, yeah.
I'm sure the receptionist has gotten good at "hold please" as soon she realizes the call is about the draft.
Thank you for calling the Arizona Cardinals.....To beg for no trade down, Press 1. To recommend a "Big John" for a draft pick, press 2. To say, Please God no more off-ball LB, press 3.

That is 20 years ago! jk jk
It’s fair. For so long the difference between OT and OG veteran deals was so great that you’d just slot in your top OT prospect on either edge. Maybe we start to see it more again if veteran guard contracts continue creeping up.

Clearly. But I don't think the two deals are in any way good enough, nor do they guarantee us the player of two that I want.

I would love snagging Fashanu and sticking him at LG for a season or two. Man that would be a nasty physical OL!

Hate to use a 1st on a LG but you would have to make the pick knowing that he eventually becomes your RT.

Yeah. I have a lot of sympathy for @DVontel 's idea, but I think Olu is the only blue-chip player on the board in this scenario, and I think you take that chance. I also think Olu's ceiling his way higher than PJJ's (could be wrong), by I'd put him at LG with the plan to move him one spot to the left in a year or two. At the rate guard contracts are going up, even if he sticks at OG you might be in good shape.

Here is a mock with trade that I would start to consider:

Trade terms:​

Minnesota trades up with Arizona

  • Cardinals receive: No. 11 overall, No. 23 overall, 2025 first-round pick, No. 230 overall
  • Vikings receive: No. 4 overall, No. 104 overall

3 - 1st rounders is my starting point to move out of #4 overall.

NOTE: I not a fan of who he has the Cardinals picking.

I'm going to recommend we trade out of the first round entirely until people stop using the term big john.

Well that’s the danger of trading down. Who cares what the picks are if you don’t end up with players you like. We’re there others that went later at those picks that would make the trade awesome? If he’s, great. If no then it’s a bad trade no matter the compensation received.

I sure hope the Cards do not trade down with Vikings. I wouldn't trade down at #4 to ensure getting a great player. The Cards would trade down with Vikings and pick 3 busts. This team just can't figure the draft out right. They'll probably find a way to mess this draft up. Last year's draft wasn't that great with all the moving around; other than the fact that they have a chance to nail this this and next year's draft. Of course they have to draft well for that to happen. I was about done with this team last year and in general with the NFL. I'll stop following the Cards, supporting the Cards if they suck it up again. It's just a business to make money for the owner. Fans get screwed. Yeah keep drinkin the Kool aid...suckers
