The value of the #1 pick is 3,000 points this year.

In 2020 the Saints own picks 24, 88, 127, 169 & 203.
Total value of every Saints pick for 2020 equals 911 points.

What would it take to trade up?

What's that make the total hypothetical price?

2020 1st
2020 3rd (the 2020 Saints, like the 1997 Saints, do not have a 2nd round pick)
2020 4th
2020 5th
2020 6th
2021 1st
2021 2nd
2021 3rd

Heisman-Trophy winning QB Joe Burrow, the presumed No. 1 pick in April’s NFL Draft, has chosen CAA Sports to represent him.

“I’m telling you…. [Cincinnati is] holding onto the pick, and they are going to take Joe Burrow No. 1”

bengalswire.usatoday.com

quote:

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard is apparently already bringing Joe Burrow into the ways of the team ahead of the 2020 NFL draft.

While it’s all in good fun in the Miami area this week for the upcoming Super Bowl, Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap let slip that Hubbard is hanging out with Burrow.


Cincinnati Inquirer

quote:

Joe Burrow to train with former Bengals quarterback Jordan Palmer before draft, per report.

Carson Palmer offered Burrow a warning based on his own experience in Cincinnati, in an interview with The D.A. Show with Damon Amendolara on CBS Sports Radio. "That's why I wanted out: I never felt like the (Bengals') organization was really trying to win a Super Bowl, and really chasing the Super Bowl," Palmer said.


Joe Burrow Twitter

Just a reminder that Skyline is terrible. That is all.


Yahoo Sports; Is Joe Burrow trying to avoid Cincinnati?

PFT

quote:

Burrow may be thinking about trying to get the Bengals to not draft him — or to get someone else to trade up and get him. And the evidence is becoming more and more clear.

In the aftermath of winning the national championship, Burrow said that he’s happy to play for any team that will pay him to play football. Which presumably includes the Bengals (although owner Mike Brown would surely love to get Burrow to keep playing for free.)

Then came the Super Bowl week shot across the bow from former Bengals No. 1 overall pick Carson Palmer, who went on the record to say the Bengals aren’t trying to win a Super Bowl. (Based on Palmer’s time with the Bengals and with other teams, it’s safe to say he knows.) Palmer’s assessment became more ominous when it quickly came out that Palmer’s brother, Jordan, will be helping get Burrow ready for the draft.

Next, Joe Burrow appeared on The Dan Patrick Show. And Burrow didn’t reiterate his “whoever wants to pay me money to play the game of football, I’ll play for ’em, it doesn’t matter to me” line. Instead, Burrow said this: “You want to go No. 1. But you also want to go to a great organization that is committed to winning. Committed to winning Super Bowls.”

Rapoport Twitter

quote:

From NFL Now: The #Bengals are willing to work with QB Andy Dalton on a trade, I'm told, a plan that has been communicated to him. This meshes with what exec Duke Tobin told me a few weeks ago that when decisions happen, "I'll be in contact with him."


CBS Sports

quote:

The Bengals think highly of Dalton and are willing to help him choose his next destination. It's a foregone conclusion that Dalton will be suiting up for a new franchise in 2020.


quote:

Trading Dalton could also signal the Bengals are ready to move forward with using the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on a quarterback. As of the time of this publication, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to be the No. 1 pick.


quote:

The Bengals reportedly have no interest in trading the No. 1 overall pick. This may be another sign the franchise is leaning toward drafting Burrow. Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan has even admitted the team's playbook will be easy to learn for Burrow.


Bleacher Report

quote:

The Cincinnati Bengals own the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft and have numerous strong options for how to use the selection, but sources connected to both college football and the NFL say the team has already decided who the pick will be.

LSU's Joe Burrow.


quote:

According to a coach who worked with Burrow in college, Cincinnati has clearly signaled the former LSU quarterback is its choice without coming out and saying it. And that's how the NFL wants it. There is an unwritten rule that teams not tip their hands as far as the top pick, as the league wants the drama and excitement of the selection's announcement on live television.


Fort Wort Star Telegram

quote:

Steve Bartkowski believes Joe Burrow should “pull an Eli Manning” to avoid starting his NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bartkowski personally delivered the message to Burrow’s family during a Davey O’Brien Award event on Sunday night in Fort Worth. Bartkowski, the No. 1 overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 1975, received the Davey O’Brien Legends Award this year.

quote:

As far as Burrow is concerned, he refused to tip his hand on his thoughts about going to the Bengals. He’s an Ohio kid and would likely enjoy playing in his home state.

But he has to weigh that with what’s best for his football future, acknowledging he has played well enough to garner leverage throughout the process.

“I do have leverage,” Burrow said. “They have their process and I have my process. We haven’t even gotten to the (NFL) combine yet. There’s a lot of things that happen leading up to the draft and a lot of information gathered.


WWL interview of CSP

CSP talks about Burrow at the 11:20 mark. Basically it says:

quote:

Q: What would it take to get Joe Burrow?

CSP: “I’d go get fitted for a wedding dress?”

“It’s a position that’s so hard to find...”

“First off, history; Cincinnati hasn’t traded a lot to begin with...”

“(Cincinnati) had a bad year. How do you avoid having another bad year? The first step is finding a guy like Joe...”

He’s going to be a guy a lot of teams will have at the top of their board and the top of their QB board.



NFL Combine Measurements:
HEIGHT 6' 3"
WEIGHT 221 lbs
ARMS 30 7/8”
HANDS 9”

Joe Burrow statement at combine:
“Yeah, of course I want to be the first pick... That’s every kids dream.”
“I’m not going to not play. I’m a ball player, whoever picks me I’m gonna go show up.”
“Whoever picks you, picks you and you gotta go play.”



247sports


quote:

if ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington is correct, there should be no more debating which direction the Bengals will go...

I can tell you that from speaking with a person in that meeting, they were blown away by Joe Burrow. He said that he was like 'a 10-year vet.' That he 'exceptional'.

"I think after hearing the way this meeting went down, we should absolutely expect Joe Burrow to wind up No. 1 with the Cincinnati Bengals. And both sides seems very clear, despite maybe some of the rumblings that existed in the past few weeks, that if he were drafted No. 1, he would be playing for the Bengals."

So if the saints trade 6 - 1st round picks then we get Joe? I mean we gave up 11 for Davenport.

Good idea, baw.

Wonder what players could be thrown in to account for the gulf of draft value?


I’m all in on this idea, FWIW. LFG

This needs to happen.

Blah, blah, not realistic, too much trade compensation, blah blah.

People watch football to be entertained. Nobody in America loves football like people in Louisiana.

Here we have too great of a story that can't be passed.

Can you imagine the excitement?

You trade who you need to trade to acquire the ammunition, then go get him.

People in Louisiana would go bananas and it would be new beginning for the Saints...just like after Katrina.

If for some absolutely retarded reason the Miami Dolphins were to sign Taysom to a restriction contract and we would up with the 5th overall pick (per CBA)

It would take #5 , #24, 1 next year to get Burrow. You could throw in a player to sweeten the deal but this is a dream and never will happen.
