I'll start the fight!

not saying i wouldn't do it, but not saying i definitely would either. DD + Ed are good players and so will (hopefully) our draft pick for this year. 3 average to above average draft picks for a "franchise" player? Not sure i'd do that. I think "franchise" players are slightly over-rated. Only slightly before people start going crazy at me! You don't HAVE to have one and Davis is not a 100% success. Of the last 10 1st round picks there's probably only 2 or 3 i would trade 3 good players for.

granted we don't know how our pick this year will turn out. I would consider this trade but not a certainty for me.
