Ellis was having a discussion with a fan on the Lunch Break today and threw out the idea of this:
If Earl Thomas and Mike Iupati were both on the board at #27, you could draft one of them, and then use your next year's 1st round pick to get the other player. This would allow us to select both Iupati AND Thomas. Now I'm not saying I'm in favor of this, but it's very interesting, especially considering how there may not be NFL football in 2011 (God knows we hope not).
Don't bash me too hard, I'm just reporting what was said on the show today, but I'd like to hear your thoughts and opinions on the scenario.
Lets say we pick Iupati at #27, then we make a trade with the Colts and give them our 1st and 3rd next year to draft Earl Thomas. It's a lot, I know, but hey it's a slow offseason and I thought it would be worth talking about. Fire away!
