I love this languaging.
Brother → we are a bunch of mostly light hearted guys in here.
Dont’ take it personally & keep posting.
I am not a PFF fan. They put Fox as 30th ranked punter & I was completely done with them.
That said, we all like to talk about different stuff…
Some are more drafters, some are stat guys, I prefer to talk about leadership aspects & energy. There are ppl that make fun of me & attack me for that too.
Just have fun experience for yourself man.
The only thing I can think of is that people are getting “mocked out” at this point. Threads like this pop up every year and often. Its a fun mental break. You were even clear that you were just goofing around. The Cleveland Browns are the team that I think most aligns with the trade down fans, in terms of some of the stuff they’ve pulled off in real life multiple times (not just a one off). They blew most of the picks, of course.
2009 - Started at #5 in the 1st round. Traded down to #17 for a 2nd rounder and a few players. Then they traded #17 down to #19 and a 6th round pick. Before people start to get upset, this was one of the few times the Browns actually had a plan and knew they could get the player they coveted later than their original pick. So they got what they could in the process. Then they traded #19 down to #21, picking up another 6th rounder. That’s where they drafted All Pro C Alex Mack.
2011 - Started at #6 pick in the 1st round. People will remember this one. They traded down to #26 for a 2nd, a 4th, a future 1st and a future 4th.
2014 - Started at #4 in the 1st round. Traded down to #9 for a future 1st and future 4th.
2016 - Started at #2 in the 1st round. Traded down to #8 for a 3rd, a 4th, a future 1st and a future 2nd. They took #8 and traded down to #15 for a future 2nd and future 3rd.
2017 - This one is interesting. Their normal pick was #1 overall because they suck and blow draft picks. However, the 1st round pick they acquired for trading down from #2 to #8 is about to be traded again. This pick sits at #12 and they trade down to #25 for a future 1st round pick. To put it into perspective their move from #2 down to #8 ultimately led to multiple 1st rounders, a 2nd, a 3rd and a 4th. Every draftnik’s dream! Except they blew most of the picks.
