Bill Barnwell's Annual All-Trades Mock Draft

This is my favorite mock draft every year. Former FO writer Bill Barnwell goes through each of the 32 picks in the first round and tries to find a reasonable trade that could be made for every selection. This year's edition finds a California team moving up to the first selection, a new home for Russell Wilson, and a new quarterback of the future for Tampa Bay.

1 If I'm trading Russ,

I need 4-107 to turn into a 1st or 2nd round pick.

Also the Dolphins trade could work Denver switching 1-10 to 1-9, 4-138 to 5-152 and Cooper to Jeudy and Denver can secure whatever QB they want, on draft day, probably Lance if they're trading Jeudy. 

Also if I was a Bucs fan I'd rather just draft...any QB this year than have mediocre Minshew for two years.

5 Eh

Blaine Gabbert, Ryan Griffin, Gardner Minshew, rookie QB, they're all the same. 

9 Although

I do like Trask at 64. No trade up, 2 years of Brady left. Worth a shot.

2 4 first rounders

For a guy turning 33 this year, who is on a huge deal and wants out? Good luck!

Feel like there is a bit of cheating in this one where most of the trades for the lower 1st round picks are actually people trading down- not so much trades "for" that pick as trades "using" that pick.

3 Wants out?

You're confusing Jamaal Adams getting 2 firsts for the most valuable position that still has 10 years left in in him

6 Justin Herbert

I find it weird when writers of articles like this include Herbert in a trade ... and have the Chargers include more assets. I don't think the Chargers would trade Herbert for Lawrence straight-up. In the modern NFL, Herbert is the holy grail: a good QB who still has years left on his rookie contract. He's proven that he can play, and Lawrence is still a question mark.

There are of course better QBs in the league -- but they all have huge contracts. Burrow could arguably be better but he is coming off a major injury. If FO put together a Bill Simmons-like NFL trade value column, where contracts matter, then the top spot would probably come down to Herbert vs. Mahomes.

The devil you know is better than the devil you don't know.

Herbert had a great rookie season.  Do you think the Cards would trade Murray for him?  Baltimore, Jackson?

Nope.

You may value Herbert over Burrow  due to the latter's knee injury and health concerns, but Burrow has the better pedigree.  

Mahomes is insanely overrated for what he's actually done in his biggest games.  I good quarter out of 8 in the SB does not a great QB make.  I've made the argument before that there are a couple of young QB's who would have had the same success being coddled in Andy Reid's offensive system.  Contract-wise, Mahomes is not a value contract at all.
