They don’t have to fake interest in Haskins, or any other QB for that matter. They just have to threaten to trade the pick to another team.
That works if you’re picking 1 or 2. Maybe 3. Not 5. I’m reading reports that the 49ers, who pick 2nd, could look to trade back with a team interested in Haskins. Like the Giants or Jags.
We were fortunate last year with the plethora of top QB prospects to be able to net a trade with Buffalo. But this year is the exact opposite and picking 5 won’t help us much.
Were people talking about Josh Allen as a blue chip QB prospect in January last year? Serious question. I don’t remember, but I doubt it. He had question marks galore, but teams know they can’t win without a QB, and you have to pay to get one if you aren’t picking in the top 3.
