we’re not going to be picking near high enough

That’s the problem. This team is going to be just good enough each year to put us picking in the mid teens. Ballard should be accustomed to this from his time with Alex Smith and the chiefs. Then they finally moved up and got their guy.

If they kept playing Hoyer we'd probably have our pick of the litter lol. 

 

In all seriousness, if they're picking in the 15-20 range they could take Herbert, Love, Fromm, or Hurts. If they wait til the 2nd then that list probably shrinks considerably. Idk that they take anyone, a lot will depend on how JB finishes the season, but up to this point he's been fairly impressive.

If anyone take Jalen Hurts in the first round, my god that would be terrible.

Burrow looking like he may be the guy this year.  But if I had a choice, give me Justin Fields in 2021.

Jacoby Brissett, he may be ok. Not sure. lmao 

I like what Jacoby has done for the Colts, My biggest pet peeve on him is not consistently  being able to stretch the field, when needed. I'm not putting all of the blame on just the receiving core.

What about Andy Dalton or Can Newton? We're more likely to baby a free agent than a high draft QB.

We would be 7-2 with him and this discussion would be comical. OK I guess we will find out what he does against the Jags, Texans, and Titans because we have to win them all now.

Don't think so, we still would be an average team trying to over achieve.

Regarding the draft, Burrow is the best in college right now but he is no Andrew Luck. He will go #1 so we have no chance at him. He may not be a great a pro anyway. Some of the QB's that have came out lately haven't been good. Winston, Mariota, Trubisky, Mayfield, Darnold = all iffy.

Ballard, Irsay and Reich will try to talk Luck into coming back.  That's our best option really though Burrow looks like he has "It".

But then you have some that came out too that are phenominal. Watson, Mahomes, Jackson. None of those guys looked like Andrew Luck coming out.

Tua and Burrow are gone in the first 4-5 picks. The Bengals and Dolphins are taking QBs. That leaves Herbert, Fromm, Love, Eason, and Hurts...none of those guys really inspire confidence. Maybe if they could get the guy they want to drop to the Skins pick in the 2nd.

True, maybe Ballard can get his Mahomes if he does draft a QB.

I mean, if they get one of the guys that probably needs a year like Herbert or Eason, then it's the perfect situation because we have Jacoby next year anyways. Let em sit a year like Mahomes.

He might just pick up a guy and have him sit on the bench and learn while Brissett continues to work and develop himself. Gives JB time to prove it still, and a young qb can get acclimated while the rest of the team hopefully continues to build? Food for thought.

I get it but he was hurt and depressed.  He's a competitor and he just might get that itch to play again.  Because of his age and who he is I wouldn't rule it out.  He might have needed time away to gather himself and completely heal.  We shall see.

We have no recievers that can get separation consistently besides TY. Need to go after something in free agency for once

I think after sitting out a year - he gets 100% healthy, the wife and baby driving getting on his nerves lol, watching the talent we have on this team, and he is still only 31, don't rule out #12 coming back. This is all a guess, I have no sources but anything is possible. He is friends with players on the team too.

    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
    • For me the main thing I can't get over with Fromm is not the arm strength althought I think you can see it in certain situations. The main things I dislike and I think will limit him in the league are: -pocket presence - it's the worst from anybody in this class. It's horrible. He is statuesque in the pocket and has no feel or vision or ability to even try to avoid rusher unless it's the most obvious of situations, he doesn't step into the pocket, he doesn't sidestep rusher...he would just stay in there and try to deliver the ball from the platform he's initially dropped to.  -inability to playmake - this ties into the pocket presence and armstrenght weaknesses too. Very little ability to make plays out of structure. If the pocket breaks, he's usually done, doesn't escape collapsing pockets and if it's one of the obvious cases where he actually sees it he doesn't have the armstrenght to make plays on the run and off platform.   I love a lot of the other things about him(leadership, accuracy on short to intermediate throws, anticipation, reading the field, smarts and command of the offense at the LOS, adjustments), but in today's NFL when defensive linemen have such athletic freaks and OLines are struggling to protect the QBs, IMO having the ability to navigate the pocket when it's workable or to leave it and make plays out of it when it's collapsing is very important. My worry is that those are fatal weaknesses that will manifest themselves in him not being able to show off his best attributes simply because in the NFL nobody is working with prestine pockets.
    • Everyone calm down. Wouldn't it be more natural if he retired at half time of preseason week 3?
    • Just because Luck didn't have the arm of Matthew Stafford,  doesn't mean he didn't have well above average arm strength.        His arm strength is as good as Tom Brady, as Aaron Rodgers,  as Drew Brees and on and on....   Just because you strength isn't elite,  doesn't mean it isn't good enough....  
    • So, Hill is still in college.     McLauren was passed over by everyone severals times since he was drafted in th 3rd round....   And Campbell has played all of one year.   Thanks for that observation...
