I can't see a 2nd unless it's a later 2nd, but why not shoot for the moon. I see something closer to an early 3rd to early 4th range for Mallett
I tend to agree. But, stranger things have happened. Would Houston trade their 3rd round pick (first overall in that round) for Mallett? This could be a possibility if they bypassed taking a QB with the top overall pick, to draft a guy like Clowney.
This may sound nuts, but how can houston pass on clowney? He's too good and simply the best player in the draft.
If I am houston sitting at 1, I gladly take clowney and work out a trade with someone for a QB like mallett. They could also pay schaub and wait the decision out, but I don't think that will happen given the cost. Draft clowney, trade 33 and a 4th for the pats 2nd and mallett.
does that work for both sides?
That might get it done. That early 4th on McCarron I'd do it
