    There were reports that Lawrence would have been the target in a trade down from 16. He may be a borderline 1st rounder on their board.

    It does kind of make you wonder if its actually true.

    The roomer says our 2 & 3 for their 2 & 4 and apparently people did the math and it's pretty close.... Don't know what chart you're using.

    Because why wouldn't Oakland try to get a better offer? They may as well leak it and then deny the leak.

    Huh? The math is perfect on the rumor. You were asking about subbing our next year's 3rd for this year's 3rd. That's worth much less, and that's what I was responding to.

    Us getting the 4th back helps, but a guy suspended 3 times in 2 years seems to not be a RKG.

    If they have a high first rd grade on someone still available then they should move up.

    How could it possibly be worth that much less, especially considering our penchant for 8-8 and with how poorly the GM in Oakland has done?

    I guess they also badly need RB, so having the chance to get their top choice would be nice.

    Historically, out-year picks are valued at about a full round below present-year picks. So a 3rd next year is worth a 4th this year.

    That would deffinitly work for me cuz with those two 4th round picks we will have we could provably get Attaochu and Aaron Murray or Kyle Van Noy and Aaron Murray or Trent Murphy plenty of options to be happy with.
