Re: Bottom Line: Jimmy Graham for Max Unger & Stephon Anthony!

Todd, Here is the post I did...

So the way the trade worked out to this point...

Saints got All-Pro Center Max Unger and drafted LB Stephone Anthony with the No.31 selection.

Seattle got All-Pro Tight End Jimmy Graham and the Saints' R4 #112 pick.

Seattle then traded pick R4 #112, along with picks R3 #95, R5 #167 & R6 #181 for Washington's R3 #69; Seahawks used the R3 #69 pick to select WR Tyler Lockett.

And Washington used our original pick R4 #112 to select G Arie Kouandjio.

With the other picks, Washington selected RB Matt Jones with R3 #95 and SS Kyshoen Jarrett with pick R6 #181 (originally a Jets pick that Seattle got in the Percy Harvin trade).

Ironically, Washington traded the R5 #167 pick to...

...the New Orleans Saints, who selected DB Damian Swann...

Washington used the Saints 2015 R6 #187 pick to select WR Evan Spencer and also got the Saints 2016 R6 pick - so the saga continues...

Got all that? Good.

Still, I'd say that's a great deal for New Orleans.

And Jimmy Graham?

The Seahawks are taking the All-Pro Outstanding Receiver at Tight End and making him...

...a Blocker!!!

Jean, great job here. To the average fan this might appear convoluted and be intimidating to unravel. Once I looked this over, however, it became quite easy. Championshipppp

This will be the pivotal pick to how good the trade was for us. it may not be the cake. that is Unger and Anthony. the icing on the cake is Swann or is he?

Add the extra pick to get him makes it even more doubtful IMO.

In Swann I see more as a safety than CB. might explain the cuts of Zimmerman and Ball. I just do not see him as a starter at either the Safety or CB position. he could very easily end up being that 5th or 6th CB/S player that is a special team player mostly.

This could turn into the move that dulls the trade all together. with the other talent on the board it will be hard for him to measure up in round 6 much less round 5. add in the baggage of a pick traded for him and ....

Charles Gains in the 6th was the best nickle dime cover guy on the board since the end of round 4.

well we will see. crow in the freezer

on the good side i can stop going on about our first pick with this move.

He's a good guy...

and EVERYONE on this board has been dead wrong about something...

Everyone has been wrong about something, true. Being wrong doesn't deserve mockery. Being wrong for making ridiculous assertions, and continuing to argue your case even though you have been undeniably proved wrong, that does warrant mockery... For years... Maybe forever.
