Do the Eagles Have Enough to Get RGIII? [AUDIO]
On Monday, we discussed a deal where the Eagles put together a package to try and acquire the second overall pick in April's NFL draft to select quarterback Robert Griffin III of Baylor.
The package we put together modeled the deal that Atlanta made with Cleveland last season to move from 27 to six to select wide out Julio Jones.
Here is what we put together:
- 2nd overall pick in the draft
- 15th overall pick in the first round
- Pick 48 in the second round
- Pick 113 in the fourth round
- 4th round pick in the 2013 NFL draft
- DeSean Jackson
While the Falcons gave up an extra first round pick, we have replaced that pick with Jackson. The hope here is the Rams like Jackson as the play-making wide out that Sam Bradford is lacking, then with pick 15 they look to sure up the offensive line with guys like Johnathan Martin or David DeCastro of Stanford, Mike Adams of Ohio State or Kevin Zeitler of Wisconsin.
Is it a long shot? Sure.
But we talked to two NFL sources, Jarrett Bell NFL writer for the USA Today Newspaper and Vinny Cerato former VP of Operations for the Washington Redskins who gave us their opinions on what it would take to make a deal for RGIII.
