It’ll be interesting come draft time. I view Justin Jefferson as in contention for WR2 - gone by 22 or 23 at the latest. And Mims, I see him as being gone by the mid-20s, with a possibility of someone pulling the trigger in the teens. But I hope you’re right - drafts like this give me hope that Mims could conceivably fall to us at 35 (my fondest hope).
IMO this won't happen unless it's for a QB. What position/players do you think we would trade future 1st round pick for? I'm actually on the opposite end of the spectrum. I think we should be trading 34 for future 1st if we don't like any of the QBs this year.
My first thoughts were... less than thrilled.
But honestly, it's pretty great, especially as a scenario for if we did choose to go the route of moving up for Love. In that scenario it probably would be ideal to move back from 34 and get more picks like you did. We did lose out on any comfortable OL depth, though, and that's kind of scary. We need it. I wouldn't bet money on us moving up for Love, but part of me definitely still thinks it could be a reality if he falls past a certain point. Pick 22 seems like that kind of point. It makes sense to move ahead of New England and New Orleans. Really if the team still believes Love could be the future then we could probably live even if you don't trade the 34th. Just trade for Love use 34 on WR, and 122 on a TE. That said. If Love were our future, you'd think we'd have stayed where we were. It'd be a crazy, bold, aggressive, historic draft if our GM traded for an all-pro, signed a top quarterback, solving our biggest need in the second, AND got our QB of the future. One can dream. But the safer and more realist route would be that we stay at our picks and get the best out of them.
