Do you think we could get Schaub for a first rounder? This is from the Baltimore Sun the other day. It's interesting, and as much as I like Schaub, I just don't know if we could get a first round pick for him. If we could, then for us using a third rounder on him, and getting a first rounder in return would be nice. Who knows then we could package it and move up and get a top notch talent. Anyway, I just wanted to see what everyone though. Here's the link and the part about Schaub. Go Falcons!!!http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/foot ... &cset=true
Atlanta quarterback Matt Schaub is the hot backup around the league who will draw a lot of interest from other teams during the offseason. Several teams have already inquired about trading for Schaub, the backup to Michael Vick.
Schaub is 6 feet 5 and weighs 235 pounds. He is already playing in a West Coast offense and is extremely accurate, a must for this type of system. Besides being big, strong and intelligent, Schaub runs well and has good touch on his passes.
He won't be a restricted free agent until the end of 2006, so he's probably going to cost a team a mid-first-round pick for his services. But a team in desperate need of a quarterback might be willing to make a deal for the second-year player out of Virginia.
