I wish the Zone was around in 1985. You would have people screaming wah wah we traded away next year's 1st rounder for a receiver from Mississippi Valley State. What idiot's we could of drafted Vance Johnson. Just how much more production will Jerry Rice have than Vance Johnson?
My point is some people are worth the cost of trading up for. If you think the guy could be a Hall of Famer why settle for his ugly cousin and another average player.
Well the zone would've been screaming to fire that fraud Bill Walsh and dump his worthless QB Joe Montana long before 1985, so the decision to grab Jerry Rice would've never been made. When Walsh trade for Steve Young the zone would've gone ballistic over the decision
Personally I'm all for trading a 1st and 2nd to get Berry because we can always trade our 1b back and pick up a second again so we're no worse off.
If I were doing it I would trade our 1a, 2nd and next year's 3rd up to #5 (assuming Berry falls that far), trade our 1b back to 22 and get the Pat's 1st second (which is the 12th pick in that round). That gives us the #5 pick, the #22 pick and the #44 pick, which is basically what we would have anyway.
