I'd like to nab wr with first pick and package picks and trade up back into first for eifert.
Im warning people now, St louis has two picks at 16 and 20. They need a TE. Chicago, Giants, Green Bay, Atlanta are all eyeing TE and Eifert is a no brainer. It will be near impossible to trade back up and land him, but Ertz may be at 2nd round. If you could trade down with St louis at 16 in case they want Lane Johnson then that is more doable but I dont see it going down this way with Wr so deep and fast.
1. La'el Collins G/OT (Trade down)
2. Jay Ajayi RB (Trade down)
2. Phillip Dorsett WR
3. Arie Kouandjio G
4. Erik Rowe CB
5. Jeff Luc ILB
5. Dezmin Lewis WR
6. Ledarius Gunter CB
Wallace isn't worth the money we wants. I'd like to scoop Patterson or Austin at 12. Now 12 may be high for Austin but he's electric and woul be a good fall back option IMO.
Jets suck, Bills suck, Patriots suck.
I personally do not see the Oline being a big issue, Jake Long needs to be healthy and Martin has gain experience and should be a much improve player and that will be enough to make our oline dramatically improved plus with the coaching staff and the players having a second year with each other.
What we do in the draft is all about what we accomplish during FA.
It's just nice to have options. The stink of the Tuna looks to be finally leaving our franchise.
There are some decent OT in this draft. I don't believe there is going to be big market for Long. I think he and his agent will be a little disappointed. Same for Sean Smith. Ditto for Hartline.
The Fins have most of the leverage in these negotiations IMHO.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
I'm falling more and more in love with Tavon Austin as the off season progresses and although he may be considered a reach at 12, there is no way he will be there for us in the 2nd round, and I would honestly not be upset if we drafted Austin at 12. I want Eifert more than anyone but Austin is the next Steve Smith.
