2019 Draft Day Grades Are In!
Some teams like the Broncos greatly pleased your benevolent dictator while others like the Saints and Steelers incurred my legendary wrath. Did your team ace it’s test or flunk out? Visit the 2019 draft day trade page and find out, my island friends!
Pleasing Your Dictator
In 2019 the Denver Broncos pleased your dictator and earned the only solid “A” grade I gave out this year. By trading down from No. 10 to No. 20 they received a haul of incredibly valuable picks and won the draft. They were able to land TE Noah Fant at No. 10 then with their extra pick they drafted QB Drew Lock at No. 41. They also banked a 2020 3rd round pick. This is the TDI Life!
Angering Your Dictator
Fans of the Chicago Bears should be hopping on a boat and paddling down to the healing, tropical climate of Trade Down Island. Chicago’s front office traded up 14 spots in the 3rd round to draft RB David Montgomery but in return they traded back 43 spots in the 5th and gave up a 2020 4th round pick! There is no difference in the talent available in the mid-3rd round, and they completely wasted a valuable 4th!
