Ranking quarterback trade targets
In order, the quarterbacks Mel would target among those discussed in trade chatter
Every Friday Mel Kiper writes about the NFL through the prism of the NFL draft.
One of the obvious realities in the NFL right now is the degree to which quarterbacks seem to mean everything. Of the top 10 teams drafting in April, nine have what could be considered tenuous quarterback situations. (And remember, the league could be boarded up from a labor standpoint, but the draft will go on.) Even Dallas, with Tony Romo, seems to at least have an eye toward the market, or at least the draft.
With that in mind, here's the order I'd target the quarterbacks whose names are most often being thrown around in trade discussions right now. It's important to note that this list doesn't involve price, as each guy is coming from a different situation and their respective teams may be more or less flexible when it comes to dealing.
