Here is why this trade might happen... This guy only has two keepers in a money team because he f**ked up and kept Mendenhall and dropped him once he found out about injury or whatever. So basically he is trying to pick up an extra draft pick to make up for it.

What other RBs are in the draft?
Those are the only "starters" I see in the draft pool. There are only three guys I would really want from that group, Chris Johnson, Trent Richardson and DeMarco Murry. Then there are the guys I would settle with if I had to or they dropped in the draft, Ryan Mathews, Fred Jackson, Frank Gore and Reggie Bush. The New York pair I am not interested in at all, Bradshaw and Greene can suck it.
i would do this in a heart beat.. even if you had the #1 pick.. Darren McFadden is wayyy more valueable healthy than CJ is IMO.. Yes there is a risk of him getting hurt and you have to take that risk to get high reward.. But something to take into account.. last season McFadden and Campbell both got hurt the the same week. So Carson Palmer and Mcfadden havent had the opportunity to play together. Palmer will dish it to him alot more than campbell did because campbell was mobile..
I honestly see Mcfadden easily having top 3 RB stats when hes healthy, which cross your finger is all year.. If not just have depth behind him. But if you play scared you will never win anyways...
here is how i see the trade broken down..
I get: Darren McFadden --------> with the draft pool shown this guy easily is top 3-5 off the board. You gave up pick #8 for this (+4 avg spots)
2012 2nd round pick #2 (14th overall) -----------> Traded #17 to move up to #14 ( +3 spots)
2012 3rd round pick #11 (35th overall) ---------> Traded #41 to move up 6 Spots to here. Only cost you 65th pick overall. (+6)
So all in all you moved up 13 spots in the draft over various positions and solidify yourself a top back better than anything you would get at #8. and all it costs you is #65 overall.. Take this deal, RUN RUN RUN and dont look back.. Steal IMO
