bryan12112...I agree...

Don't get me wrong, draft picks are important, but when you can add a guy that dominates the game like Chad Johnson, I wouldn't care if the Bucs traded their first 3 picks for the man....

The reality is, we may have to trade our 1st and maybe a 3rd or 4th to land him...and I'm fine with that...

I'm not saying draft picks aren't important. When you start trading away multiple top picks, you can get in trouble. But I think a first and a third is still a reasonable deal for Chad Johnson. The Bucs would be getting an elite WR in return, filling a huge need, and they could still land an important player in the second round.

I would trade our second for Johnson, no question.

I'd even trade our first.  CJ has many good years left and we need a good personality around TB.

John Galt?

I think that is the fair value for him.  Throw in Nece or Will Allen even.

Tell me a WR that we could at 20 that is better than CJ.  I think Clayton was 17.

and CJ was a second rounder.  We may not get a better WR at 20 but DT/DE/CB/RB who knows.

Clayton was 15 and the pick at 14 was DT Tommie Harris

The only thing is, I believe the Bucs have a real plan in mind for that 20th pick this year.

Well, like keeping it to start with. But I just get this vibe that they have a real sense of exactly who is going to be available at that spot and have a couple of guys that they really, really want to add to the squad from that slot.

IF - big IF - any team could get an elite speedy and proven NFL wr in exchange for a pick - they would have a hard time passing - and the 20 pick - for a team in desparate need of an elite, speedy proven NFL wr - I think the plan might be altered.  I don't see the Bengals letting Ocho go for that price.

It's a good year to be at #20 I think.  With the needs we have there are going to be several guys available there who would work.  But man, Chad Johnson.  That's gotta make them think about trading it.

I think you've hit the nail on the head.

Plans change, so who knows?
