It makes no sense. Haskins is a 1st rounder and didn't look bad as a rookie. You have to do your due diligence and see what you got with him. In the mean time, you grab an elite edge rusher.
Position for position, yes, QB is more important. But if you have a guy with a high ceiling like Haskins already, taking another QB with a high ceiling over the elite edge rusher is idiotic. Especially when one QB has a year in and looked decent as a rookie. Why start over with another QB ?
As the Skins, you HAVE to take Young. They're not going to the superbowl next year, take the guy who could be the next Mack. Give yourself a dominant front 7 as a start for your rebuild. And work from there. I'd understand if Haskins looked totally inept every time out. But he awarded himself the chance to go forward as the starter.
They have to take Young if they stay.
But Miami has 3 first rounders. Using the points chart, #5 and #18 add up to the same as #2.
So, if Miami really wants Tua and is willing to move up for him, that is the trade and maybe you can even get another pick as well.
If I’m Washington, I prefer that.
There is a caveat to that though...you have to feel that you can get an elite guy at 5 and another very solid guy at 18.
Young will be elite and you win with elite talent. I’m not trade 2 good to very good players for one elite guy, no matter how many holes my team has.
But if you think Isaiah Simmons is that great or one of the Olineman is a 10 year pro bowler, you likely will be able to get that player at 5 and still get someone good at 18.
It really comes down to your evaluations there.
