The #2 pick has to be decided before teams look to trade with the Lions. With Burrows told he’s going 1OA, now Skins are on the clock. Nobody is going to trade with Lions without knowing what is happening with 2OA because they don’t want to pay the price to move up to #3 to be leapfrogged and sniped by a team trading up with Washington.
I think it has to be for a QB, I just don’t think a team pays such a price to get a DL. I mean we’re talking at least 7OA trying to move up here right? Giants go OT, Miami and SD go QB. Does Washington want to fall down to #7 or later from #2? I don’t think a team in the top ten would offer their first and second this year and first next year for #2 OA to draft Young.
This is due diligence on all sides - teams feeling out what Washington is asking to then game out if other teams would be willing to pay their asking price. Washington is seeing what teams would be willing to possibly pay.
