#1 Draft pick no longer Sexy?

Dullpish may try to trade theirs.

...The second problem complicating trading the top spot is the financial commitment the team that uses it will have to make.

JaMarcus Russell played hardball with the Raiders, not reporting to camp until the second week of September when a deal that got him nearly $31 million guaranteed from a six-year contract worth roughly $60 million was finalized. The agent of this year's top pick likely won't settle for anything less than a four percent increase.

"The financial part that goes with that pick is a huge obstacle for some teams. There are a lot of teams that don't want to take on that kind of debt because it messes your cap up," said Lions President Matt Millen, who paid receiver Calvin Johnson a $27 million signing bonus last year as the No. 2 pick.


I wonder if BB will try to trade down. Nothing new for him.

Too bad Ditka ain't coaching still. The 'phins could trade that pick for all of his other picks

Matt Millen might trade up. Is there an over-hyped WR in the draft this year?

3 WRs since 2004?

Can that be compared to TEs and BB?
