    That trade would make more sense because Culpepper knows Denny Green's offense and did some some numbers in it

    I don't see Leinart as a franchise player like Bush and Young. If bush and young are gone, then it would smarter to trade down for other high quality player combos like GLinks listed.

    Jacobs is seriously overrated and I'm willing to bet he doesn't make an impact on ANY team in the next 5 years.

    I can't see any team giving up the #6 and #17 pick for the #3 pick. If Y'all think Cutler is such a great QB that Y'all would pick him in the first, don't you think they may be willing to get him and keep the other pick for theirselves, since your premise is that they need a QB so bad.

    i it's safe to say the #3 will be more valuable if it's Reggie Bush

    In the end, it's the player a team covets. The value chart is but a guide to that end. If a team wants a player badly enough, they'll pay to get it.

    But moving on, it may not be Oakland anymore apparently. If it's the 10th and 17th picks the Vikings hold, that is only "overpaying" by 50 points according to the chart. But given that it'll be Leinart, Bush or Young we're talking about, that's really like going for #1 overall, regardless of our team's position. And teams have historically overpaid for #1 overall caliber players.

    See Starkiller post.
