"True" trade value for the #5 pick in the 2014 Draft

I have seen a lot of mock drafts with the Raiders getting 2, 3, sometimes 4 picks to move into our #5 slot! I must say I disagree.

Reasoning? Last year, we received one 2nd rounder for our #4 pick.

Another reason? I don't think any of the QBs or Sammy Watkins are "do or die prospects" for many teams, like RG3 was for the Redskins....because there are players like Mike Evans behind Watkins, and there are 3+ "potential first round" QBs (Bridgewater, Manziel, Bortles, and maybe Carr?).

That being said, if a team wants a player bad enough, they will make the trade. Atlanta hit with Julio Jones, Washington may have missed with RG3! But if there is just ONE other team near our #5 pick that is ALSO willing to trade down, we will be in a bidding war, and I expect a result similar to the one 2nd rounder as last year.

Agree or disagree?
