Ballard and Reich have both stressed accuracy as being one of the biggest things for a QB. Herbert had almost 67% accuracy this year. So maybe he is the one they want. Loves was 64% in 2018 so still pretty good. More accurate QB or the one with more playmaking off script ability. If they some how are able to get Herbert I predict he will be the starter day 1. He would probably fit seamlessly right into Reichs system.
While they make statements that seem (and may be) true, make no mistake teams will not willingly signal their draft intentions to other teams. Mayok is responsible to get players Jon wants and coaches. Gruden loves QB's, and also traded Khalil Mack. Trading Carr is only 5 million dead cap. Depends upon Gruden deciding if Derek can run his playbook well enough. Maybe Tom Brady goes to the Raiders. We'll see.
Great effort. And while I kind of doubt Ballard will spend this much money, we can still hope for another month or two. AC will be the key here IMO. It all starts with him. Lets hope we get good news soon. Otherwise - you've addressed most of our needs and have added a lot of talent to this roster. If we did something like this IMO we will have good enough roster to compete for the playoffs this coming year and depending on how Love develops maybe compete for superbowls down the road.
