I don't think Peterson is worth a 1st, 2nd, and Julius myself. If I were to move up in this draft into the 6-10 range, it'd be for an elite defensive lineman, and I wouldn't give up a veteran to do it. If by some miracle I were to get into the top 3, I'd be praying Oakland and Detroit wouldn't draft Calvin Johnson.
Wow, someone finally gives a constructive reply. Well now I think this thread could be getting somewhere actually after seeing that rumor with Detroit/Cleveland. Pretty much no reason for Cleveland to want to trade up if it's just going to take Peterson. Cleveland could be impressed with Quinn and take him, which means Peterson drops. Since Crenell is close with Weiss he could get tons of inside info. I don't see how someone could put their life on Cleveland taking Peterson, although I did get a good laugh out of it.
All I made the thread for was to see if people would want to take action if Peterson dropped down to the 8-10 range and instead the replies were riddled with nothing but Peterson is going at #3 trash.
To me, our 1st, 2nd, Julius, and a couple of 2nd day picks to move up to the 8-10 spot or whatever to get Peterson is a deal I'd easily do. If it costs more I probably wouldn't be for it. I've always been a Julius fan, and he's pretty good, but Peterson is better. I do kind of want to see what Julius would do behind our new line and under a new coach but if the opportunity is there, I think we're in a good position to do this kinda deal.
p.s. is it just me or does it seem like the majority of posters here just read the topic, click the link and go straight to the reply button without even bothering to read 2 paragraphs?
