Maybe, Pack and Vikes can deal? RollEyes

From rotoworld.com:

Appearing on SportsCenter Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter called the Vikings "a team to watch" for Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Schefter indicated he wouldn't necessarily expect Minnesota to draft Teddy at No. 8 overall, but they could be willing to trade back into the end of round one to secure him. The Vikings made a similar move to land Cordarrelle Patterson last April. In other Bridgewater news, Schefter stated NFL teams never viewed him as a truly elite prospect "behind closed doors," despite media speculation to the contrary. "I don't know that he was ever viewed as a No. 1 overall pick," Schefter stated. We expect Teddy's "sweet spot" to be in the 24-39 pick range.

Queens get a QB, they could take a step forward from total shit suckage.

If you think Bridge"not over troubled"water is the guy they want and you think he sucks and will cripple them until AD's tires fall off, I'd serve him up on a platter for them. Perhaps, a Vikings trade down, and a Packers trade up to 8 instead of the traditional thinking of them trading up with us from 2nd back into 1st. Would be pretty exciting thought if one of the studs is still left there at 8, and they only reason Ted Thompson would do it.

While I like it uff, I just can't see it. Would take quite a lot to move up that high.

Well we are talking about an organization that in back to back years failed to make its first round pick in time... maybe they'll do something utterly incompetent and trade back for next to nothing. One can hope, right? [-o<

TT has traded up into Round 1 before giving up his two 3rd rounders to get Clay.

Just for hypothetical speculative banter... WHO would it take being there at 8 for Ted to make one of those types of moves way up there? There's gotta be a guy he would deal a bunch of picks and or player(s) for. I wonder who that would be? Khalil Mack, perhaps?

In all seriousness, if Khalil Mack fell to 8 I think that would be worth considering. We'd be so loaded at pass rushers and we'd have the heir apparent to Peppers. Going forward, Neal and Perry as your backups would look pretty damn good.

Anthony Barr would be another one worth considering at the back end of the top 10. Otherwise, I just don't see a lot that would tempt me to move up to that spot considering what it would likely cost to get there.

If Ted did trade up he could not give up 2 3rd rounders for him. At least not 2 2014 3rd round picks. The second 3rd round pick is a comp and is not tradeable.

That said Mack may be the guy.

Last year, and I can prove this, because I posted it on my blog, I said: IF GENO SMITH FALLS, TAKE HIM!

What would that have looked like after Aaron went down? NERD=GENIUS.

Proof that I'm smarter than Ted Thompson!

I say, trust your scouts. If you have a QB as a clear BPA, take him.


I would rather have Datone Jones and Matt Flynn (backup) than just Geno Smith (backup).

Rodgers sat for three years. He has anywhere between 5 - 8 really really good years left in him.

Trading up to number 8 would require a Lawrence Welk trade.

You're getting slow on the draw. That post was almost 3 weeks old!

No way they can get to 8th with two 3rd round picks anyhow.
The cost would be steep and a move like this ignores issues at positions where not adding talent would be a mistake.

It would easily take out or 2nd and 3rd round picks other than the 3rd round comp pick. I see no team changing player at 8 worth passing on the talent that's in this draft.

I am not saying they could get the #8 for 2 3rd round picks. Simply that GB does not have 2 3rd round picks to give. At least not at this time.

Everyone hates the Value Calculators but the #8 is rated higher than the 21,53 and 85 spots combined. Still and all I would make the move if I could get three picks in the first 85 if I were the vikies. Thing is why would Ted EVER make a deal with them and give them so many players?

Seems like the sure thing though going with Mack over Clowney. That's a lot to give up, but could easily be a future HOF player.

Big risk, but with The # of young players The Packers have coming back, this could be the year That Ted surprises everyone.

I don't think it will ever happen, but sure would make the 1st 15 minutes of the draft exciting, then we all could just sit back and wait for late Friday night.

I wouldn't mind moving up for the right player, I also wouldn't mind trading the pick away and using the acquired picks to max out on 2nd and 3rd rounders. The team doesn't have room for high volume of picks, we need more quality instead.


The closer we get to this thing the more I am thinking Ted will trade away our #21.
Quote:
“If we could, we’d have more. More is better; it gives you better odds,” said Thompson, who has four picks in the top 100.
... straight from the horse's mouth. Of course he was referencing comp picks in this discussion, but I kind of feel this is his general philosophy. Friday should be a very big day for us.

If Ted does stay at #21, I think we will know it is for the opportunity to select one of a handful of players they have rated very high. I would guess that player will be very special. I don't think he keeps the 21 for anything but what he feels is the surest player to help the Packers.

I can easily see him trading out.
