Oh okay sorry then thought you misunderstood me. I would never advocate for trading startup 1st rounder for any amount of futures. And I agree with you to a degree but for example, lets say hes only trading down to like 1.04-1.06, you’re still getting a top flight player and if you can acquire some 1st round picks and potential swaps in the 2nd-4th rounds in the process, that would be great.
And yes at 1.01, I’m taking OBJ every single time. In fact every time I’ve had the 1.01, I’ve taken OBJ if I didn’t get a lucrative enough offer.
I would expect to pay another top flight asset acquired in the 1st such as MT/Evans/Kamara/AB etc and then plus a juicer. Whether that is next years 1st round + or other players in lower tiers (think like potential 3rd/4th rounders). Although if it’s the latter, I would likely expect to get some future draft capital back too in some instances. But in no world would I be paying a combo of the players I outlined previously (i.e. Kamara + allen) for OBJ.
I have also moved out of the 1st before (albeiet a mid/late 1st) for a 2nd and a 3rd and next year 1st/2nd by giving up some swaps in the 4th/5th. But even when I got that deal, I thought the other guy paid a heavy heavy price. So if i could sell OBJ for anything along those lines, I’d probably do it.
