    maybe not that unlikely, baisically there are 2 slots the lions are looking to trade into, 4-7 to get Joe Thomas, and 18-22 to get Joe Staley, the bucs have galloway, the skins dont need a reciever, the cardinals are alrdy set at WR. now, the vikings might be able to get in there, but i dont see them having alot of the necissary trading chips to close a deal, to many pressing needs to give up so much, now we start at the 18-22 slot, The Bengals might go for a receiver but they wouldnt waste that much when they can get a receiver like Ginn, Bowe, or Meachem right there at 18. Tennessee obviously a pressing need at WR could be the best case scenario to land Johnson, plus they have 10 draft picks, and i dont think MR is as much as a draft pick fanatic as Reese was, at 19, the lions might be selecting.

    Then we start at pick number 20, the giants, could go for a running back, or defense on this one, litttle chance of them drafting a reciever let alone trading up for Johnson. at 21 the Denver Broncos definatly dont need joe staley, but want a receiver, but the problem is they are still hurting from recent trades, like a couple of years ago there jump with the redskins...then there is the dallas cowboys at 22, for them i see it virtually impossible to jump 20 picks and add johnson to there rostter, they just dont have the ammuntiion to do it.

    Saying all this, i think the team that has the best chance to land Johnson is the Sanfrancisco 49ers, they have 8 picks in the first 4 rounds, so they can definatly close a deal if they want to.

    Pick #2 is worth 2600 points on the draft trade value chart. Our picks 19, 80 and 115 only add up to 1051 points. The difference, 1549 points, is roughly equivalent to pick 7 in round 1. Bell is a fine player, but he ain't worth all that.

    The trade chart is not the Bible, but that's a ridiculously lopsided trade in favor of the Titans.

    NO NO NO.
    It wasn't so long ago when Ditka did this same stupid thing and sacrificed the entire NO draft with Washington to get Ricky Williams. Washington in turn got Champ Bailey with their belated first round pick. This hurt NO badly for years to come. You may also recall Minnesota made the same idiotic mistake for Herschel Walker in 89. Dallas laughed all the way to the bank..

    and Dallas built a Super Bowl team thanks to that trade

    We are a team that clearly wants to build via the draft
    you'd think we'd be in good shape, but obviously drafting 3 DE's one year and 3 WR in another and we still need help at both spots (and both are considered to be to be at least in our first 3 picks)
    kind of makes one :irked:
    or even :barf:
    and alot of us are going :huh:

    but I'm pretty sure that Calvin Johnson, as good as he is, would NOT solve all our offensive problems or set any NFL records in this offense
    and certainly isn't worth surrendering 3 high picks and one of our more promising OL

    if anything, I'd like to see us package a few second day picks to maybe get another pick in the second
