Those Trade Offers Aren't Rolling In

A month or two ago it looked like a lock that the Falcons would entertain trade offers for the #3 pick. The Cowboys, led by Petrino-meddling owner Jerry Jones, were expected to make a strong push for Darren McFadden. I don't know if the team would really be willing to do so, but it would certainly be nice to have the options.

Yet Steve Wyche of the AJC writes that there's been nada mucho thus far. A number of NFL teams are smartening up and realizing that it's a waste of picks, time and money to jump up in the draft order. Logically, the Cowboys could get two terrific players on an already solid team instead of one possible home-run who has more kids than Old Mother Hubbard (she lived in a shoe and shit).  While the Falcons could use more than one first round pick, a player like Jake Long or Glenn Dorsey may be special enough that they want to stay where they are, anyways.

But here's my question to you: what's the ideal trade scenario? Play around with it for a bit and see who might want to trade with us, and what we'd get for those picks. The best one will be Falcoholic endorsed, which is like the highest honor a 23 year-old blogger can bestow on someone without having to spend any money for it.

Thoughts?
