Howie Roseman Says Trading Up Not a Good Idea
With rumors swirling that the Eagles are determined to do whatever it takes to move up in this years draft to select former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. At least one guy inside the Eagles front office isn't on board with that move - former general manager and current Eagles Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman.
Roseman, speaking at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference said:
“When you’re looking at trading up, at some point, your board drops off so dramatically in terms of how you evaluate that player,” Roseman said, via Philly.com. “But the history of trading up for one player, when you look at those trades, isn’t good for the team trading up and putting a lot of resources into it.”
As you know Roseman doesn't make those decisions anymore, but one has to wonder if he would be on board with the proposed deal that hit the rumor mill today: Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and three first-round draft picks to the Bucs for the No. 1 pick in the draft.
SO Eagles fans, would you make that deal and do you agree with Roseman or Kelly?
