Hard to get more when you forego any leverage.

1. He's coming off a serious injury
2. He makes a fortune
3. He holds out every other year
4. Only one team was bidding for him

With all that in mind, how much more could you reasonably expect?

And add: Revis was going to be a free agent after this coming season, and could not be franchised again. I'll take the first and the third.

Errr, considering how reluctant a lot of GMs are to give up 2nd round picks for other guys, a 1st and a 3rd for a guy playing a speed position coming off of a major knee injury and a pendingFA who's already had 2 major contract hissyfits is a great haul.

JPP was a middle of the round pick for the Giants, couldn't be happier with him, even with his not so great past season. Any 1st round pick you can get is very valuable in the NFL. Hopefully the Jets look to actually improve their OL and LBs. But they're probably going to end up drafting Matt Barkley.

Is anyone a fan of out of market teams?

I'm a fan of the Houston Texans. I'm hoping they take DeAndre Hopkins from Clemson or Robert Woods from USC. Texans definitely need another WR to play opposite Andre Johnson. Also would like to see them address the need of ILB, NT and Secondary depth.

Yeah. I mean a healthy, fully recovered Darrelle Revis is arguably the most valuable defensive player in the game. So from that standpoint, you'd figure he's worth a fortune. When you look at all the external factors though, his value become significantly less. A first and third is not a bad return. It's not an awesome return, but I think it's reasonable.

Really? It's a phenomenal return. I was surprised they got a 1st.

It's no "Suck for Luck" but they could try "Be fodder to get Bridgewater!"

New Orleans Saints fan here... I'm looking for help on the defensive side of the ball. I kind of want them to take Werner from FSU but that's just because I want an excuse to buy a jersey with my last name on it without having to be "that guy". Lol

New thread. We will just blow this one up quickly with the draft and it's better to keep all the draft discussion in one place.
