Roy Williams is worth…3/4 of a draft class?

We all know about the blockbuster trade that occurred today, Detorit sending Roy Williams to the Dallas Cowboys. But has anyone seen what the Cowboys gave the Lions? The Cowboys gave the Lions four total picks, including a first-rounder in next year’s draft. The Lions also received a third and sixth-rounder in the 2009 draft with a 7th round pick in the 2010 draft.

I absolutely love Roy Williams. Not only is he an incredible receiver, but I’m a sucker for Texas Longhorns athletics. There’s no doubt that Roy Williams adds a threat and depth to this Cowboys team, but there is no way that the Cowboys get the better end of this deal. In fact, who ever took over Matt Millen’s old spot as GM of the Lions should receive an extension for stealing right from under Jerry Jones’ nose.

Reports say that T.O. is estatic about the trade for Williams, but that’s all a bunch of nothin’. Sure you can swing it and say that it will draw off the double teams of T.O., but what it really does is take touches away from other guys on the Cowboy offense. That means less touches for Witten (my fantasy team will hate that), less touches for Crayton (who sucks anyway), and less throws to crybaby Terrell.

This is a sign of desperation by Jerry Jones, and I couldn’t enjoy it more. The Cowboys are falling apart and Jerry feels it. I expect Roy Williams to put up good numbers, but they don’t make the Super Bowl. They miss the Super Bowl, Wade Phillips is fired, Jason Garrett is promoted to head coach, and Jerry Jones picks up another convict to add to the roster.

On the other hand, with all of the picks that they gain, Detroit could have a really great draft in 2009. Seeing as how much they suck so far this year, and a new GM, we can expect for the Lions to use their draft picks wisely instead of selecting eight wide receivers in seven rounds. I’m not saying the Lions are on the rise all of a sudden, but this could be the first move towards a positive rebuilding.
