Potential and ability wise, I'd say a 2nd, maybe a 2nd and a player (If he was not caucasian). However, he is Caucasian, so I'd say a 3rd.

I think it would be an awful idea to trade him as we'd get far less than he's worth. However, with all the ridiculous talk around here of him getting shipped out, I thought I'd take the board's temperature on his current trade value. Not what you think he's worth, but what we'd actually get in return.

what he's worth and what his market value is are two separate things...

but his trade value = 5th IMO...

Trade value is a 7th, he is young but is coming off injury, he is somewhat versatile but runningbacks coming out of Denver often fail to live up to their previous achievements.

This is supply and demand season.

If they want Hillis, they have to pay a third rounder. Otherwise, no deal.

I still wouldn't take it, but that's my best shot at "objectivity." We don't need to trade, they do. Third rounder or nothing.

Hillis's vaule is only a 3rd, and that's if a team wants to take a chance on his potential. Personally, I wouldn't give up a 2nd for him.

I hope McD runs at least a few FB sets with Hillis, and maybe use him as a 3rd down back.

He was a seventh round pick and if we flipped him for a second that would be awesome. I agree I think he's worth more as a player, but we don't use a lot of fullback in this offense.

The only player that they could trade that would "turn" me is Clady.

A second? Who know what we'd do with it?

Hillis proved he can carry the ball and he's got great hands. Why would he not be worth keeping on that basis alone? Or do we want to see Moreno carry it 25 times a game? I think the guy's to versitile to trade and he brings a power running game Moreno doesn't. It would be folly to trade this guy.

I think we'll get a 5th.

Well a second round pick is very different than a mid round pick, I would understand the trade for a second round pick but I still would rather have Hillis.

Agree. With the versatility Hillis has and the way he proved he could carry the ball last year, he will have a spot on this team. I don't think we should pigeon hole him as a fullback, because I think he will transition to a single back tailback and occasional fullback.

Exactly ... as has been said, Peyton's ceiling is so sky-high, he is worth mega-tons more than we could ever dream of getting in return in trade. Woodyard is a similar story ... maybe not a prototypical 3-4 linebacker, but way too good a football player with WAY too big an upside to trade for some second-day pick.

I thought he could be the starter, absolutely, with Buckhalter/Torain as 3rd down and short-yardage guys. I love Hillis's vision, he's almost never stopped for a loss or a no-gainer. He seems to spot the hole before he even takes the handoff.

If there's any downside to Knowshon - although it's hard to imagine one - it's that Hillis might see the field less :(

I actually think Hillis will have a bigger role in McD's offense then he would have with Shanny still around.

Hillis has a few things going against him right now.

1) Coming off the sever injury
2) He's white and big and plays FB/RB. You don't see many of those so he is going to get the Alstott comparisons from the get go.

Let's hope McD doesn't just see it that way also. This guy has the power of an Alstott but alot more skills and speed.

I'm confident that if he isn't dealt before camp, he will prove to the new coaches that he's not only a lagit runner, he will be 2nd RB on the depth chart.

I'm pretty sure that Turner has told McD this guy is special and that's why I think all this trade talk is hype only. I believe he is sticking around and will play an important part this season.

..........and why would a coach want to trade a very productive versatile player that is making 7th round coin. It doesn't. This trade talk is hype only.

it may be a good thing to limit his carries actually, a guy that goes that hard every play cannot sustain the normal amount of carries (just my opinion) to be a starter but if you bring him in situationally (I don't think this is a word but I am rolling with it), you know you are still getting 150% and he is rested/healthy.

All I know is if Moreno is as good as he looks like he can be, this would be a running game from hell to try and game plan against.

Until he remembers that Shanahan drafted him.

And you can never get good value for a franchise 3rd year QB just coming into his prime. It's the single hardest to fill spot for any team, and most never get one for decades. You cannot put a price on it.

A 245lb RB that can play FB, RB, or H-Back. He has receivers hands, RB's speed, and FB's strength/power. He can play any number of positions including leading the wedge on kick returns... if not returning the ball himself. Not sure anybody could or would give us what he is worth, but he's better than most of the FBs drafted over the last several years b/c of his versatility. What was the Rutger's kid that was drafted in the 2nd round a couple years ago by the Rams?... Hillis is certainly better than him.

That all sounds great...only one problem; he unfortunately is going to be replaced on a significant number of downs by a blocking TE who essentially does only one thing...and no he won't give us what Hillis is worth...not as a complete player. How cool would it be to see Hillis on the field with Moreno and switching from FB/HB to H-Back to TE...thus offering a triple threat instead of a one dimensional game? He seems like the perfect complement. I hope he gets the chance to show what he can do.

Hillis would make an ideal TE in this system or any other. Or he could play H-back. What's not to like? He's got size, speed, toughness, and exceptional hands. He's an extremely hard worker and while he might need time to develop into a top flight in-line blocker from that position, having watched this guy carry the ball when he came in as a rookie who was expected to simply block and catch once in a while...well who believes he wouldn't pick that up too? This guy could literally play 4 positions on offense and never come off the field. He could give us the flexibility of switching the formation on any given down in the huddle or at the LOS from a 2 back offense to one RB offense with an H-back or an extra TE, or back again the other way. We could even flank Moreno as a receiver and drop HIllis into the RB spot. We could split Scheffler out as a slot receiver and let Hillis line up in his spot. There' literally no other guy on this offense that offers this kind of versitility and flexibility, which would make him a truely dangerous weapon. That's what makes the Quinn selection so odd IMO. On top of everything else, he's undoubtedly the best inside power runner we have.
