NFL Trade Rumors: Osi Umenyiora's Price Could Be A First-Round Draft Pick

Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants was arguably the best of the defenders in Super Bowl XLII, and his pass rush abilities in Steve Spagnuolo's defensive schemes were beyond parallel. So it makes sense that if the Giants were to trade Osi to the Seattle Seahawks per his requests, they'd want something in return. New York wants a draft pick, and a particularly high one at that, reports John Clayton of ESPN.

During the conversation between the Giants and Osi U, the team told him if they would shop him they would ask for a No. 1 pick

Is Osi worth a number one draft pick? Possibly. He is one of the best 4-3 edge rushers in the league, and he'd fit in perfectly well in Seattle on a team that could use pass rush. But he also turns 30 in November and his time in the league cannot be projected to be very long. You'd have to think Seahawks management would want to barter that down, but this could be New York's way of saying, "Back off, he's ours", and try to scare Seattle away from pursuing the defender.
