The caveat here though is that a good young player is worth a lot more to us than a good draft pick. Draft picks pan out probably only 33% of the time. So trading McCoy for 2 #1s would be stupid in my opinion, because only one would pan out and that player might not even be as good as McCoy. I wouldn’t trade David for a #1 either. I would only trade good older or mediocre younger players, neither of whom are very tradable. I would trade Barron for the right price, I'd trade Goldson for a hot dog and a coke, and I'd trade Mason Foster, Clayborn, Michael Johnson, William Gholston (he has no pass rush skills), Evan-Dietrich Smith, and Josh McCown. We wouldn't get much for any of these guys, but if we could get some 5th, 6th and 7th round picks, that would be advisable, as it would enable us to trade up and manoeuver to get quality players next May, and would also create room under the salary cap.Despite my frustration, especially with the fact that we don't disrupt opposing receivers' routes, I do think we should keep Lovie on board, because he is a proven commodity. Given time and another year or two of drafts and free agency, he will assemble players that fit the scheme. During the rest of this year, I hope he can train a corps of young players, particularly the cbs and linebackers, in how to run the cover 2 scheme and close all the darned holes in the seams of our zones. Derrick said it takes a year to learn the scheme, so hopefullly next spring we will have a group of young defenders who know how to run the scheme properly.

Please wait…
