A Peytonator Mock: Bleep The Pats Edition


Recommended Posts

Over The Cap has us at 77.2 M going into next year.

 

Re-sign

Donte Moncrief - 1Y/3M 

Adam Vinatieri - 1Y/2M

Jon Bostic - 1Y/1M 

Pierre Desir - 1Y/1M

Mike Person - 1Y/700K

Luke Rhodes - ERFA 630K

Chris Milton - ERFA 630K

Eric Swoope - ERFA 630K

 

Eats up 9.6M leaving us 67.6M

 

Free Agency

Andrew Norwell OG - 5Y/65M - Everyone's favorite free agent. Hard to argue against it if he becomes available in my opinion. He will likely become the highest paid guard ever, but I think he'd be worth it.

Cameron Fleming OT - 4Y/25M - I would like to take someone from the Pats. Fleming is the only decent looking RT entering free agency and I would like to nab him, weakening the Pats and helping to fill out our oline. 

Brandon Fusco OG - 1Y/1.5M - Has had some good years and some bad. Solid veteran depth to fight for the RG position.

Matt Tobin OG/T - 1Y/700K - Was a solid guard for the Eagles, moved to Seattle and was forced to play tackle where he was bad. More competition to fill out the right side, just as Ballard has preached.

Orleans Darkwa RB - 2Y/8M - Big bodied back that can break tackles. Put up a solid YPC average behind one of the worst lines in the league with the Giants.

Cody Latimer WR - 1Y/1M - Hasn't put up numbers in Denver with a crap QB situation the last three years and playing behind Sanders and Thomas, but he was drafted in the second for a reason and has a big frame that I would like to see compete for a roster spot.

EJ Gaines CB - 4Y/50M - He has been a consistently good corner since his rookie year, playing in several different systems. PFF rated him the 13th best corner this year. He's not a big name, or an attention getting guy, and I believe he would be a steal in free agency.

Anthony Hitchens LB - 4Y/28M - Gotta fill out our LB corps. Would help transition into the Eberflus era.

Avery Williamson LB - 4Y/24M - See above.

Aaron Lynch DE - 1Y/2M - Has been solid but uninspiring in San Francisco. I liked him coming out of college and I think maybe a transition to a 4-3 could be good for him.

Kareem Martin DE - 1Y/2M - Feel the same way about him as Lynch. I liked him coming out of college too. Could go the same way as Alex Okafor from last offseason; leaving the Cardinals and showing much more in a different system.

 

Takes up 52M based on my estimates and contract projections, giving us 15.6M to sign draft picks and leave some buffer for next year.

 

Draft

I'm a huge advocate for trading down in this draft, and the best trade down proposal I've heard is to give up our 3rd overall pick for the Bills' 21st, 22nd, 53rd, 56th, and next year's first round pick. A lot of people who have their hearts set on Chubb, Barkley, Nelson, etc. will not like this, but I'd roll the dice on this and see what happens.

 

1/21 Maurice Hurst DT Michigan - I think he'll drop based on his size, but his production has been elite. He has Aaron Donald level of potential.

1/22 Ogbonnia Okoronkwo DE Oklahoma - Our next Robert Mathis

2/36 Darius Leonard LB SC State - I like his range/coverage ability. Compares to Telvin Smith/KJ Wright.

2/53 Dallas Goedert TE South Dakota State - I have him dropping a little coming from a smaller school and the league's seeming disregard for drafting TEs very high.

2/56 Isaiah Wynn OG Georgia - Has been a tackle at Georgia but will have to move inside in the NFL being on the short side. Showed well in Senior Bowl week.

3/67 Rashaad Penny RB San Diego State

4/100 Nick Nelson CB Wisconsin

5/131 Fred Warner LB NC State

6/164 DJ Chark WR LSU

7/195 Tyquan Lewis DE Ohio State

The only reason we should trade down that far would be if both Barkley and  Chubb are gone.

 

Also I think you’re committing too many resources to the OL. Yeah we need improvement there but signing/drafting that many guys plus the people already on the roster, and you’ll have more OL than needed.

i wouldnt trade back that far period. 

 

if chubb or barkley are there, the furthest i would trade back is 6th.  if they are not there then no QBs have been taken, and there will be several teams that are very interested in our pick

 

so i still wouldnt trade out of the top 10, and we could start a bidding war for #3

Not at WILL? He's got good coverage skills. I think he could match up against TEs

 

I agree, but i think that coverage ability is important in both positions...

    • I have to say I've read a number of articles where the writers are predicting where the best fits are for some of the top free agents.  Another one today where they are placing J. Clowney with the Colts.  This fit with Clowney is being mentioned quite frequently.  Today's article mentioned we tried to get him last year but he went to the Titans.  They feel he fits our scheme perfectly and is still only 28 years old.  Great setting the edge and next to Buckner he could really have a big year.  I believe he signed a one year deal last year for 12M.  Maybe Ballard gets him this time.  
    • Yes - best days seem to be behind him. He was one of the greats at one time. If he comes back, I hope he finds it again.
    • From what I've read, he sounds like a young guy who is getting better and ready for a breakout season. He had some good pressure stats from the article that was quoted. Of course, it comes down to who Ballard likes. I hope he likes someone younger. It seemed pretty clear we weren't getting the job done toward the end of last season, and I don't expect some of those guys to get any better at this point in their careers.
