Would your team trade this years 1st for DLaw?

As a 49ers fan I'd take my chances with Bosa assuming he was ours.

Affording that will be a problem though. You'd have to cut Griffen, Sendejo, Remmers and Rudolph and hope you land some good OL in the draft. Forget about resigning Richardson or Barr.

I’ve already accepted we won’t be resigning Anthony Barr.  As soon as we extended Stefon Diggs I knew Barr would be the odd man out.  Wouldn’t mind cutting griffin though at this point and we’re probably drafting an offensive lineman somewhere in the top couple of rounds anyways

I could see the Chiefs doing it with their change in schemes. Especially if they can get something similar or close for Ford.

That being said, I hope they keep Ford and let him try his hand in the dirt.

Is DLaw worth the 2nd overall pick? Yeah. If you use that second pick on Bosa, you're just hoping and praying he becomes as good as Dlaw, which is  far from guaranteed. Would the 49ers trade that pick for Dlaw? I don't think so. 

Maybe not if you account for the difference in Salaries though. Bosa’s Cap numbers over his rookie contract will be what, 13-15 or more less than Lawrence would expect in any contract extension.

 

 Is Lawrence worth Bosa plus Trey Flowers or Bosa plus Earl Thomas/Landon Collins (take your pick)?

As a Vikings fan, for pick #18, without question I make that trade.  Him and Hunter would be such a nice pair of edge rushers

Isn't lawrence a 3-4 DE though?

Difference is Bosa is going to cost less than half of what DLaw will cost over the next 4 years (also think there is reason to hope he is even better than DLaw). The great edge rushers usually don't take too long to adjust to the game, if Bosa is the real deal (which you obviously believe if you draft him), he probably is producing around DLaw level by year 2.

 

He is definitely worth a 1st, top 10 pass rusher in/entering prime, I just don't know about top 5 pick.

A proven commodity is always more valuable then a unproven one.

Which is why he wants be paid 20 million plus a year. Young players on rookie contracts are valuable because they are unpaid versus their performance.

absolutely right. Lawrence on a 20M per year contract is not very valuable.

We couldn't afford to pay him what he wants without losing out on guys that have proven it with our team already. He is definitely worth a 1st round pick but that contract could be interesting.

yes. Easily. He's only going to be 27 next year. NFL fans overvalue draft picks.

Think about what's wrong with that statement. You're betting on potential, not results already rendered.

A Top 3 DE worth 20 million is still far more valuable then a rookie "if" you can afford them.
