Originally posted by BobS:With low slotted salaries for rookies drafting well is going to be the major route to success. I doubt we will ever see a team trade a good chunk of their draft for one player anymore, too much risk too little reward.
This is the way I see it as well. No matter how good that one player is, he isn't worth the risk. Look at Williams and Walker in the past. Now look at Julio Jones and RG3. Julio and RG3 are great players but one injury knocked Julio out last season and RG3 the season before. RG3 still struggled last season because of the injury the previous season.
Even if they never got injured, it wouldn't be worth it. Your getting a great player but giving up a couple good players and at least 1-2 great players in return.
