Wouldn't this be awesome? Dream Draft Scenarios...


Recommended Posts

Pre-Draft

- Cousins sign with Vikings. Leaving Broncos, Jets, Cardinals, Bills & Browns all looking for QBs...

 

First Round

- Browns panic and think they can't take Saquon Barkley RB - with #4 and select him #1 overall.

- Giants, with Barkley already selected, take Josh Rosen - QB.

- Now Colts are on the clock with Darnold & Allen are both available... We trade with the Jets who give us their #1 & #2 picks this year, & a pick next year.

- Jets take Sam Darnold - QB

- Brown take Josh Allen - QB

- Broncos take Minkah Fitzpatrick - CB

- Colts take Bradley Chubb - DE

 

Second Round - Colts now have 2 picks in the second round #36, & #37 (from Jets)

#36 - Will Hernandez  - Guard

#37 - Leighton Vander Esch - LB

 

Round 3

Jaire Alexander - CB

(Probably will get snatched up in the second round by somebody, but it is possible).

 

Round 4

Royce Freeman - RB

(His college dropoff in production was due to injury. His running style would complement Mack's.)

Hernandez and Vander Esch could be gone, but on several "big boards" these guys are typically not above #40 and we would be picking 36, 37 in this scenario.

Although, PFF does have both Hernandez and Vander Esch ranked more highly...

Browns will probably just take Barkley at 1 though and select a QB at spot 4.

If they plan to draft a QB the logical thing to do would be use the number 1 pick and make sure they get who they want. If they wait until the 4th pick it's possible 3 could be gone.

Really doesn't seem to matter. If the Browns (Jets too) used every pick they have  for QBs, they probably all be flops.

In that scenario, I bet the Colts can get an extra day two pick at least. 

 

But if the Colts are at #6 both Chubb and Minkah are available at #5, I will do a happy dance.

I would take Nelson before I take Minkah --no contest

Math isn't my strongest subject but if the Browns hold the 1st and 4th picks and decide to pass at QB at the 1 spot wouldn't there only 2 players picked before they're up again?  Would still leave them with at least one of either Allen/Darnold/Rousen.(or Mayfield if you're a believer).  For a group that hasn't really separated from each other I would say picking their top rank player @ 1 and wait until 4 to address QB is what would be best for that organization.

If the Colts end up with Barkley and Nelson that would be a dream draft.  

take Barkley at #3, Nelson slips to the middle of the 1st, Colts trade up from 2nd round and take Nelson.

 

It is an extreme long shot... but I hope your dream comes true

    • Yeah, us yanks just draw an arrow in the bottom right corner of the page.
    • I don't disagree with much of that.   My view is pretty much hypothetical since he is going to be in the HOF.  Based on others that have gotten in, it'd be dumb to think he won't get in. I just was voicing how I wish the HOF was.   Only the best of the best would get in.  Not Namath, Swann and Griese.  
    • That's on the upper end of WR2 money. Gonna say their calcs are off lol... Pascal is a great depth guy, but IMO he's too much of a tweener. Runs great routes, but isn't fast, and lacks some of the measurables. If he was faster, he'd make a great slot or Z. If he were bigger, he'd make a great X. He's just caught in between as a small X or slow/big slot. I'd say he's more 3/4, than 4/5. I'd love to keep him as that 4 guy. Just my opinion, but I think he'd make a good possession slot. Burton is getting those reps now. Will be interesting to see the re-shuffle once Pittman gets back at X.
    • Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/zach-pascal-22405/market-value/   i can’t believe Pascal’s perceived contract value is being shown at 8.4 million avg and 4yrs. That is a lot of money for a guy who really hasn’t put together an entire season or even really half of a season with numbers that make you feel he has more to his ceiling. He at times has made some plays and looked like is he breaking out and then he levels back out. He is a usable 4/5th receiver imho but nowhere near 8 million $/yr. wow!
