Aaron Rodgers...

How many future top draft picks would you give up to get Aaron Rodgers?

Let me rephrase that: Would you trade Alex Leatherwood, Henry Ruggs and Clelin Ferrel (our top first round picks over the past three years) for Aaron Rodgers? I sure as hell would. I'm not saying that's a viable trade scenario, it just goes to show the supposed future value of picks presents a different psychology than the actual value of realized picks. We often see future picks as gold we need to hoard, even when we continually see that gold turned into silver or bronze. 

It very likely that Rodgers to the Raiders ain't going to happen, but it's fun to discuss. Word is that he'd like to head west, and there are few teams in the west that aren't set at quarterback.

The one that jumps out is the Broncos. That's something to consider as well as a Raiders fan. If Rodgers goes to Denver, we're suddenly in a division with Mahomes, Rodgers and Herbert, which would create a hell of a mountain to climb for the next three years or so until Rodgers tapers off. 

What would you give up to avoid that situation while adding a talent like Rodgers to the helm of our offense? 

Is that something you'd entertain, or do you feel it would be a fool's errand to even consider it? 

Bring your takes!
