Panthers move up to No. 136 for DE Marquis Haynes, Rams move back and take LB Micah Kiser while gaining an extra 6th rounder

< Trade #18.24: NWE & DET IND & OAK: Trade #18.26 >

Panthers left with
No. 136 – DE Marquis Haynes

Rams left with
No. 147 – LB Micah Kiser
No. 197 – Traded No. 197 and No. 256 for No. 205 (LB Trevon Young) and No. 231 (LB Travin Howard)

Dictator’s Decree: “One year removed from this trade and it’s still as boring as untranslated Russian literature. Neither Haynes nor Kiser did anything as rookies, but at least the Rams got some value out of the 6th round pick they received by using it to trade up later in the draft.” – March 2019

As the dictator of Trade Down Island I have a lot on my plate and don’t have time to waste with meaningless trades. After the 2018 season this trade looks, well, meaningless. The Rams traded down 11 spots for an extra 6th round pick which they ended up packaging with another selection for late-round picks. The Panthers took DE Marquis Haynes at No. 136 and he registered all of four tackles on the season. The Rams took LB Micah Kiser who also only registered four tackles, all of which were on special teams. Now…back to ruling my island!

2018 Year-End Summary
This trade may bear fruit like the coconut and pineapple trees here at TDI in the years to come, or it could turn out to be a relatively meaningless mid-round swap. The Panthers will desperately need depth at defensive end in 2019 and Haynes may get more playing time in Year 2, but only time will tell. The Panthers did follow Article 8 of TDI’s Glorious Constitution by giving up a normally worthless 6th Rd. pick to move up and get their guy, but Haynes’ first season was less than inspiring.

Notes on statistics:
1. Approximate Value(“AV”) and Snap Counts (“Snap”) per Football Reference.
