What Would the Khalil Mack Trade Look Like if the Raiders Used Chicago’s Pick on Minkah Fitzpatrick?

With news that the Dolphins are willing to trade first-round defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, there’s no question the Raiders should be interested.

Jon Gruden might not be quick to throw a future first-round pick at the Dolphins, but let’s take a look at what the Khalil Mack trade would look like if the Raiders did send the Bears 2020 first-round pick to Miami in exchange for Fitzpatrick.

What the Raiders would get from Chicago:

– 2019 first-round pick: Josh Jacobs

– 2020 first-round pick: Minkah Fitzpatrick

– 2020 third-round pick: To be determined

– 2020 sixth-round pick: To be determined

What the Bears would get from Oakland: 

– Khalil Mack, All-Pro defensive end

– 2020 second-round pick: To be determined

– 2020 fifth-round pick: Pick is conditional and conditions have not been reported.

The other significant element of the deal is salary cap space. Mack carries a cap hit of $11.9 million this year and a cap hit of more than $25 million in each of the next four years. Theoretically, that money saved by the Raiders would be reinvested in free agency moving forward.

So the question is, would Jacobs, Fitzpatrick, and $25 million per year in available spending be a reasonable return on Khalil Mack and a second-round pick?

You be the judge.
