Trading Back with the Eagles




If Geno Smith falls out of the Top 10, he could still be falling at Pick 24 (see Aaron Rodgers). In that situation, many teams with high second round picks might consider the #24 spot a valuable pick to acquire the West Virginia QB.

One such team is sure to be the Philadelphia Eagles, who took the entire front office (owner included) to Smith's workout. The Eagles have shown a great willingness to sit at the trading table with former scout Ryan Grigson, and may have a desire to do so again. If this holds true, there is great value for the Colts.

According to the trade value chart made famous by former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson, the Colts pick at #24 is worth 740 points. The Eagles pick at #35 is worth 550 points. This means the Eagles would essentially have to make up the difference of 350 points in order for Grigson to take the deal. They could do this quite easily.

The Colts and Eagles could swap picks in the third round, placing the Colts at #67 and the Eagles at #85. That would leave a difference of 95 points for the Eagles to make up, which they could easily do. Their 4th round pick, #101, is worth 96 points. They can give us one extra point just for agreeing to the trade.

So, to recap, the Colts get picks 35, 67, and 101 in exchange for picks 24 and 86. How many of you are willing to take that deal?
