Of the following players what do you think the Eagles can demand in terms of a draft pick and would you do it. I will start:
Brandon Graham: 4th rounder. Was extremely productive in the last half of 2012 when the Eagles gave up on the 4-3. This draft is reportedly thin on the DLine. He is under a 3M a year contract for two more years and would be an immediate starter. If someone misses their DE needs in the draft I think you can flip Graham for a 4th rounder. I would do the deal.
Desean Jackson: 2nd rounder. He is paid a lot. He is also very productive. I think you could get a 1st rounder for him in the middle of the year depending on injuries. A team trading for him would have to not only desperately need a wide out but be on the cusp of a Superbowl so the market is small. New England could pull the trigger in the middle of the season. I will point out that I have not forgotten like a lot of people that Jackson had 1300 yards, 9 TDs last year. I would not make the deal before the draft. I may mid year depending on other WR production and our record (if Maclin and Cooper are killing it and we are 2-5).
Bryce Brown: 6th rounder. Has shown he can be a productive runner, though cuts outside too much and fumbles too often. Is under contract for two more years at the low price of 600k a year. Teams know he could compete for a starting job. Too bad all of the clearest trade partners are in the NFC East. I would do the deal.
Trent Cole: 5th rounder. This is a tough one. Cole is making 6M this year and can't really be dropped due to dead money. He will certainly be cut after this year by whoever has him as his salary jumps to 10M. At that time there is still 4M in dead money. A team would certainly be interested in his 4-3 DE ability, but won't give up a ton for an overpaid pass rusher with financial downside in the following years. Philly has no bargaining power here. Even assuming the bring in another Kendricks type player through the draft, I don't think they give up Cole for so little in return. I do not do the deal.
Let me know your thoughts. Feel free to add other players.
