As it stated in So I posed the question to the insider: Would you trade the first pick in the draft for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo?
The second is that between Julio Jones and Carson Wentz, Browns fans have had enough of trades down in the draft.
The 49ers and Bears are rumored to be considering Garoppolo, and they don’t have an extra first-round pick to offer.
The Patriots could get a lot of value if they trade away Jimmy Garoppolo but history shows that acquiring a high-profile backup QB can be risky.
After picking myself up from the floor, I continued the conversation and asked the insightful question: “So you’d trade the first pick in the draft for Garoppolo and a third-round pick?”

Per the draft value chart, an early second and early third round draft pick combines to present the same value as a mid-first rounder.
Acquiring any fourth round pick prior to the Seahawks selection is just throwing away value because it will be stripped.

McCarron has spent his entire professional career with the Bengals, but he has made it very clear that he wants more playing time.
