Andddd done. 3 firsts? Why not make it 4, I'm not driving.
If 3 first rounders is what it takes to get Deshaun Watson, by all means consider this deal done in my book. It sounds steep but I know 2 things to be true:
1) The Washington Football Team has never had a franchise QB as long as I've been alive. The longest anyone has ever started at QB has been 3 years- Gus Frerotte (1995-1997), Jason Campbell (2007-2009), and Kirk Cousins (2015-2017). There was some Mark Brunell mixed in there, a trade for Donovan McNabb, some Brad Johnson, Patrick Ramsey, Rex Grossman, John Beck, Tony Banks, and the list goes on and on and on. Never a franchise QB.
2) You need a franchise QB to win in this league. Very rarely does a team win a Super Bowl without a stud QB. It happens on occasion, sure, but for the most part you NEED a winner at QB to be a winner in the NFL.
So if you combine those 2 things together, it's obvious the Washington Football Team should 100% be willing to give 3 first rounders for Deshaun. Think about it this way- who are the last 5 QBs we've taken in the first round? Heath Shuler, Patrick Ramsey, Jason Campbell, RG3, and Dwayne Haskins. That's 0/5. So instead you can eliminate wasting the picks and get a guy in Deshaun Watson who we already know is a stud. Makes perfect sense to me.
I fully believe with this defense, a free agent WR, and filling in some depth on the Oline and at LB, (aka the plan for the offseason) then this team is a Deshaun Watson away from the Super Bowl. Oh it's true, it's damn true.
I wouldn't trade Chase Young, but probably everyone else is on the table if they want 2 firsts and a player. 3 firsts and a player would be a bit steep depending on the player, but I'd listen. A franchise QB is everything in the NFL, almost unfairly so. So when one is on the market, you have to pull out almost every stop to get him. I wish it wasn't so unbalanced like that, but when you have the chance to get 10 years of Deshaun Watson for 3 firsts, you gotta do it, you just gotta.
