I think Rivers will be here for a few years, provided he plays well and avoids injury. When you listen to Irsay talk about Rivers and how he is a "young" 38 with a lot of football left, i think that the plan is to keep him as long as he is being productive and until we have a successor in place
I was one of them. I seem to remember 2 teams (Browns were one I think) who would have traded their entire draft for the Luck pick. That would have been like a Herschel Walker type deal. It would have allowed the team to build a solid base. Granted at the time I knew little about Grigson drafting talent. But having the third pick in the 1st along with 2nd in the top of each of the other rounds would be sweet.
I wasn't upset with not doing it and taking Luck though.
I’d like to see a trade down at #34. There will likely be interest in that pick coming at the top of the round so it could generate a good return.
I’d group those WRs in to the same general tier with guys like Shenault, Pittman Jr., Claypool, and Hamler. I like some better than others but would rather trade down and pick up an extra third so we can potentially grab two from that pool — or fill another need at OL, CB, etc. The total lack of activity in free agency with the receiving group makes me think Ballard might want to double dip the position early in the draft.
Something like Aiyuk/Shenault and Pittman Jr would be ideal to me.
