Trade Five: 7th round pick for Bills WR Marquise Goodwin

Why not take a flyer on the speedster from Texas? Goodwin looked like an intriguing prospect with his 4.27 speed and strong finish to his rookie year. However, fast forward two years and Goodwin is fighting for a roster spot as a situational deep threat and is competing as a track athlete off the field. There’s one thing you can’t coach, and that’s speed, Goodwin could be coached to be a blazing slot receiver.

Trade Six: CB Leon Hall for St. Louis WR Tavon Austin

Having Leon Hall on the books for almost 8 million this year is ridiculous and bad business.  Especially when you have so many unsigned guys going into next year, mainly A.J. Green. Hall would stabilize the Rams at corner and provide a tough veteran, in a tough division. If you watched Austin in college I think you know why this trade would be intriguing. He is another guy that has had no one at the quarterback position and has suffered from being misused.
