This is the type of article I like to find.At least GM Floyd Reese is talking about his options instead of some pundit.On the top three:
Keeping that value as high as possible, because trading down is definitely an option:"I think at this point, those guys are probably as highly rated as a top group that has come out in a while. They all look to be great players,'' Reese said yesterday. "Now what happens two or three years from now, of course we don't know."But you have two Heisman Trophy winners, and all three have won a national championship. You start listing all the things that would classify you as a 'star' and probably those three guys have more of those than any three have come out in a while.''
Obviously he has to have high praise for any of the top three players. He has third pick and wants them all perceived as franchise grade future stars. But, again Jay Cutler's name is popping up, and again, I get the notion (reading between the lines) that Leinart is not highly coveted by Norm Chow's team. Of course, the exact opposite can be read between the lines. On Cutler:Of course, if someone is willing to pay, then of course there is a price. Those spots can always be bought, it just depends on how much you want to pay,'' said Reese, before bringing up the 1999 trade when the Saints traded all their draft picks — and two more in '00 — to pick running back Ricky Williams."You get a Ricky Williams kind of trade or something like that. … I imagine you have to move down and take a look at those things.''
"I think before the workouts, I think he is probably projected about the third (QB) in the draft,'' Reese said of Cutler. "Now what happens after workouts is of course a different story. He is probably a pretty good blend between Young and Leinart. I think he will (climb).''
