Another way to go. Trade way down and stack up #1 picks in 2024

Technically the receiver who fell in that class was T Higgins. Jefferson was thought by many to be the 4th best. The Eagles picked Reagor ahead of him, but all the draft talk I remember had Jefferson, Higgins, Reagor and Aiyuk around the same grade.

GMs missed on Jefferson, one of the beliefs was that he was a slot only WR. When Brandon Beane said he didn’t think he could get high enough to land one of the top three (Jeudy, Lamb, Ruggs), he thought it’d be best to make the move for Diggs. He also said he didn’t want to suck badly enough to draft a receiver of Ja’marr Chase’s ability, but clearly had one right there (and had a couple in the 2nd round in earlier drafts AJ Brown/DK Metcalf), so Jefferson was a missed evaluation, just like the others.

Lamb fell from his original projection, the package of picks given up for Diggs was relatively close to the value of 17 and would have saved a TON of cap space.  If the same opportunity presents itself this year, Beane should be going up.  WR is a NEED, what on earth would they do if Diggs was out for any period of time?  There’s nobody on this roster that’s even a starter outside of Diggs.

How far down are we talking? If it's down to the 30s, that's fine. Otherwise I don't want us to miss out on a good offensive line prospect that might have fallen. 

Very far. As it says in the original post, all the way until the first round next year.
