Which ones would you want to see?ESPN answered this hypothetical question today, listing a bunch of trades that they would want to see happen before the 2019 season.It would be pretty fascinating to see them.Here’s the No. 1 pick. It’s quite a move.1. Washington junior QB Jacob Eason for Florida State junior DT Marvin Wilson and senior CB Levonta TaylorFlorida State is desperate to get things going on offense, and that means the Noles need an elite quarterback. Eason is expected to be Washington’s starter this year — after sitting out 2018 — and he was the No. 1 QB prospect in the 2016 recruiting class and a 13-game starter in the SEC at Georgia before a knee injury ended his 2017 season early. Washington needs help all over its defense, but especially up front. The athletic, versatile, 300-plus-pound Wilson was the No. 1 DT prospect in 2017 and registered 4.5 TFLs, including 3.5 sacks last season. Taylor is coming off an injury but is a shutdown corner and All-American type when he’s healthy.Few, if any, major college football programs are more in need of some quarterback help than Florida State.The Seminoles have almost no young depth at the position and have had quite a bit of turnover this offseason.Washington’s defense would benefit greatly from this trade, too, as its adding a couple of big-time impactors on that side of the ball.What college football trades would you like to see?last_img read more
