There is little debate that Ohio State football’s Jeff Okudah is the best defensive back in the 2020 NFL Draft class. But will that protect him from a potential drop on draft night?

Charley Casserly had two deals worked out before the 1999 NFL draft and one target he was trying to get – Georgia cornerback Champ Bailey.

Washington’s general manager at the time, Casserly stumbled into a pre-draft trade that was too good to pass up when the New Orleans Saints offered their entire draft, plus first- and third-round picks the following year, to move up seven spots to the No. 5 pick in the first round.
