OH WELL. SUCH IS LIFE.

IT'S likely that neither of my teams got exactly what they wanted.

Chip Kelly says that they were "heavily considering" Dion Jordan, but the cost of moving up one spot (a 3rd rounder) was too high.

They tried to get this done apparently prior to the draft or early during (maybe both), before they made their pick. Which is to say that they settled for Lane Johnson.

The Raider wanted to stockpile picks and a trade down to 4th overall while also picking up a 3rd rounder, would have left us with a highly movable 1st rounder that would us to do what we eventually did, which was trade out of the top 10 and pick up a 2nd rounder to boot. In other words, if we'd made the trade with the Eagles it would have netted an additional 3rd rounder, but it would have required more than one trade to do it. 

So neither team got exactly what we wanted. Oh bein. C'est la vie.
