Would you give our 2020 1st rd pick to the Lions for Kenny Golliday?

Recommended Posts

I would, the guy could be the offensive game changer that the Bills are looking for. He’s entering his last year of his rookie contract and the Lions will have to make a decision on him sooner or later. Being a Belichick disciple I would think that Patricia isn’t looking to lock up a ton of money on a WR. Pay him now and they might just be willing to give him up. The guy has been in the league and is ready to ball.

Yes. In a heartbeat. 
 

Oh wait, he’s on the last year of his deal?   
 

Then maybe a 2nd. I don’t believe in giving up high picks and then also having to give out a huge contract.

No. 

 

Draft offers more youth, some players seemingly with more talent, and a lot less money. 

 

The first round pick for X questions just don’t make much sense, especially with the WR depth this year.

Love Golliday. He looked very good against White in 2018. Doubt the Bills would do it though. Maybe a 2nd and a future early pick would get it done.

Why are you concerned about money?

Golliday is better than anyone in this draft and it’s not even close.  He’s the speed, big bodied guy everyone says we need

Edmunds, Milano, Dawkins, Josh, Tre, Poyer, etc. are all guys that are going to need to get paid soon. Adding Golladay to the list doesn’t help, he expires after this season. 

 

The cap space is nice right now but it doesn’t last forever.  We have a young core with most of our important players on their rookie contracts, these rookie contracts don’t last forever.  Give me a number one who we have cost controlled for 4 years, not a number one with one year left and a $15M+ contract coming.

But draft also doesn't guarantee Pro level success. Golliday has already proven he can play in the league at a high level, the players in the draft have not.

 

As for your list in the other post, only Tre is in line for a Big deal soon, the rest haven't done anything yet to deserve deals that could break the bank, even Josh hasn't hit that level yet.

for our pick in the bottom portion of the 1st round? yes. without hesitation... not only is consistently very good, he routinely makes circus catches for his qb.

I don’t know how much more talented some of these draft wrs are than KG.  He’s really good and he’s proven.  Especially given the way this staff has drafted at wr.

 

but you’re dead on about the money.  He is going to get paid big real soon.

He’s more known. Not necessarily better... he was a third round pick himself, which kinda proves the craziness of WR drafting.

 

I wouldn’t trade a 1st straight up as this is such a good class. Maybe a 1 for him and a 3rd.

Yes.   Is in the prime of his career, and is coming off of back to back 1,000 yard season.  Huge catch radius, and a legitimate deep threat to go with his size

Seriously, unless there's a legit rumor someone is trade bait or a possible cut, it's just pointless.

If you don’t like the thread then ignore it. The negative comments about posting on a public message serve no purpose. Unbelievable how miserable some people are!

Why are you worried about things 3-4 years down the road? 

 

Whats more important a Super Bowl victory or cap space?

Nope Will cost a nice new Contract on top of the 1st.  You say 2nd and I would be on board

Being a coach with a 9-22 record in 2 years, who was brought in to take a 2x 9-7 team to the next level, I would think that " WWBelichick do?" on a perennially championship winning roster, is probably the last thing on Patricia's mind.  When you take over a 9-7 team with its "franchise boy" QB in place and a recent playoff appearance, 6-10 then 3-12 are not expected to be on the menu.  He has to be feeling the seat-heater warming up in his chair. 

 

That being the case, what exactly would be Patricia's motivation to move the Lions best WR of the last 2 seasons, who will be dirt-cheap for 1 more year?

 

I mean, sure, if he were available for that I'd take him.  But why would he be available?

This is a WR rich draft.

 

Why give up draft choices when you can draft 2-4 WR's in this draft alone and let them develop with Allen?

 

Give up a 1st round pick AND pay Golliday? Beyond stupid.
