Last year, the Chargers traded their 1st round pick (No.1 overall) to the Giants and received the Giants 1st (No.4 overall) and 3rd round (No.65 overall) picks and a 1st and 5th in next years draft. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to do the same thing and when IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m finished, my first day picks will look as follows:
This year - 1st (Pick #4), from the trade
This year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 3rd (Pick #64), our original 3rd rounder
This year - 3rd (Pick # 65), from the trade
Next year - 1st and 5th
Last year, Detroit traded its 1st round pick (No. 6) to Cleveland for the Browns' 1st and 2nd-round picks (Nos. 7 and 37). Again, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to do something as close to this as possible so that I can pick up a 2nd rounder. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what my first day selections look like now.
This year - 1st (Pick #7)
This year - 2nd (Pick # 37)
This year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 3rd (Pick # 64), our original 3rd rounder
This year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 3rd (Pick # 65)
Next year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 1st and 5th
Now, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m ready to raise some h3ll!
1st Pick, #37 overall, DT - Anttaj Hawthorne or Rodrique Wright, DT
Announcer: In the 1st Round with the #7 pick in the draft, the Miami Dolphins select Anttaj Hawthorne (or Rodrique Wright), Defensive Tackle.
Who else hates playing the Jets in the Meadowlands on Monday night? I know Curtis Martin and Lamont Jordan are tired Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcause theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been running through my mind all week! Time for a change.
2nd Pick, #37 overall, LT - Michael Munoz or Chris Colmer
Announcer: In the 2nd Round with the 37th pick in the draft, the Miami Dolphins select Michael Munoz (or Chris Colmer), Left Tackle.
What do Wade Smith and Damien McIntosh have in common? If you answered that one correctly, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure that you agree that we absolutely need a new left tackle.
3rd Pick, #64 overall, RB - DeAngelo Williams, Cedric Houston, or Kay Jay Harris
Announcer: In the 3rd Round with the 64th pick in the draft, the Miami Dolphins select DeAngelo Williams (or Cedric Houston or Kay Jay Harris), Running Back
Lamar Gordon, Sammy Morris, and Travis Minor are excellent #2 guys but starters they are not. Although Houston is a bit of a hypochondriac and Kay Jay Harris hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t had the monster year that everyone predicted, both are extremely talented with a lot more upside than anything we currently have on our roster. If Williams enters the draft and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s available here, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s my pick though.
WR - Airese Currie, Fred Gibson, or Jason Anderson
Announcer: In the 3rd Round with the 65th pick in the draft, the Miami Dolphins select Airese Currie (or Fred Gibson or Jason Anderson), Wide Receiver
Now hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a golden opportunity for us to turn a position that hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t scared anyone for years into an absolute beast! Gibson and Anderson remind me of Brett FavreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new favorite receiver: Javon Walker. Currie, on the other hand, is smaller speed guy like Laveranues Coles or Santana Moss. Either way, we could use this pick to make this position stand out.
Well fin fans there you have it. I got us extra 2nd and 3rd round picks this year and an additional 1st and 5th next year. Plus, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m trying to dump ole Slick Rick Williams and get something out of him too. It's a hard sell, but you never know.
If you were the GM, how would you handle Day 1?
