Yeah, even with AD in there I have to give it fairly handily to team A. Moss is solid for 2-3 more years, maybe more. Braylon won't hold a candle to him and then add the top Rb from the rookies this year vs the #3-4 rookie WR... not close.
I like team A for the reasons bungle listed. Forte isn't that far behind AD. Moss will perform better than Braylon for the next 3 years. And you get the top pick in the draft which will likely be a pretty solid rare miss prospect.

Yeah team A is given the upperhand but if Forte doesnt have a year like last year it would be an even trade. Forte could take a step back this year. I was one of the few people high on him last year but I don't know about this year. I think Forte will be a good player but not like last year. I believe he will get 1100 yards TOTAL, and 8TDS TOTAL. Still a good year.

1.10 is not gonna land you a top-notch rookie, probably a guy like Glen Coffee for example. The 1.1 pick gets you Knowshon or Beanie. Big difference there, but they are all a crapshoot I guess...
Braylon Edwards is the wild-card in the deal. If he were to get dealt somewhere that deal is possible, if you look at the age difference with Moss and Edwards as a factor.
But I wouldn't do it if I were Team B.
The draft is a combined rookie/free agent draft. There are also restrictions on how many one can keep at each position (no more than 3 RBs, 4WRs, 2 QBs) so there is some free agent talent available. For a point of reference, first round free agent picks last year included Cotchery, Selvin Young (he appeared to be the starting DEN RB last year), Maroney (projected #1 RB for NE after a strong '07 finish), DeAngelo Williams, and Tony Gonzalez. Rashard Mendenhall was the 1.10 last year.
In other words, there is talent available at the 1.10... although the 1.10 has zero chance of a Wells or Moreno.
My team is Team A.... I guess I am trying to sell high on AP... it doesn't get any higher than a consensus 1.1 pick in a redraft league. I can always offer this trade (I haven't done so yet)... but what would you suggest as a "fairer" trade if it is declined? Or am I strong enough to just stay put and draft at 1.10? (I also get 2.1, the next pick)
