As most of you have already heard, the Kansas City Chiefs are actively trying to trade out of the #5 spot into the middle of the first round. The team that has really emerged as a possibility is San Francisco because of their need at QB and their apparent infatuation with Jimmy Clausen. SF currently owns the #13 and #17 pick in the first round, so this is what I propose:
49ers trade #13 and #17 to the Chiefs for #5 and #50 pick. Let me explain:
Based on the NFL draft pick value chart:
Incredibly those pairs of draft choices both add up to 2100! So you get an equal valued trade.
With the #13 and #17 picks, the Chiefs can now realistically target players like Earl Thomas, Rolondo McClain, Dez Bryant, Dan Williams, Joe Haden, Terence Cody, Jerry Hughes, or even Bulaga (j/k, but at least there would be more value for him at that pick)! So what do you think, get two quality automatic starters for the price of losing out on the chance of selecting Berry or one of the top OT's and hoping for at least a serviceable starter at #50.
