Way Too Early - What would you do with 2021 first pick?


Recommended Posts

We're only 5 games into the season, and this question is best asked somewhere around Feb/March next year.

However!

Assuming we finish 10-6 or 9-7, we'll probably end up with a pick in the 19 to 23 range.

What would you do with our 2021 1st round pick?

  • Quincy Roche, DE, Miami
  • Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
  • Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn St
  • Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
  • Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio St
  • Trade pick for Sam Darnold, QB, NY Jets

I'm guessing we'll end up with an 8-8 or 9-7 record at best. Rivers isn't protecting the ball like he should and Reich hasn't opened up the playbook yet. 

 

With that said, I would like Ballard to try and land Trey Lance somehow at QB. This team needs an exciting QB with a live arm. 

 

If we don't target a QB early, we need help at LT and DE in the early rounds.

First...   ESPN had an article in the last few days saying GM’s around the NFL do NOT believe the Jets will get a first round pick if they decide to trade Darnold.

 

So the question becomes what pick  would you give up if you still like the kid?   I’m not sure I see the Colts liking Darnold more than Eason.

 

As to the other options, I see Ballard taking a lineman 4 years out of 5 on average.   So, either DE or OT would be the choice in 2021.

Make whatever trade necessary to get Trey Lance. We're a QB away from being a great team. The QBs in this draft are too good to pass up just for the hope of Eason developing down the road.

Knowing Ballard, he will trade down from the 1st to gain a 2nd round pick and we get an edge rusher and WR in the 2nd round.  Then he will say, look...a few hundred times...:peek:

 

Should have just traded with the Eagles at No.21 and gotten Jordan Love.

Let us say we barely make the playoffs as a wild card at No.7 in the AFC and lose in the wild card round and pick at No.26

 

My draft on Day 1 and 2 would go like this:

 

1. Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State - Freakish athletic at 257 lbs, heard he could run a 40 in the high 4.3s, played 38% of snaps, had a 81.8 pass-rushing grade on just 207 pass-rushing snaps. He will project real well on our defense with his quick twitch and pass rush.

2. Tre Walker, WR, San Jose State - 5'11", 195 lbs - He is very versatile inside and outside, good route runner and electric. You guys should read this about Tre Walker. Another guy I like is Tylan Wallace of Oklahoma State here.

3. Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State - 6'6", 301 lbs - good blindside protecting prospect

Leatherwood, as long as he's worth the pick. 

 

Roche would be second choice, and would have to rate much much higher than Leatherwood to be selected over him.  Although I would always like to have a pass rusher that is dominate, EDGE rushing can still be accomplished by a rotation of rushers. 

 

No team rotates LTs.

Since Rousseau opted out, the best DE at Miami has been UCLA transfer and #1 hs recruit Jaelan Phillips. He had some injury issues at UCLA but he is playing really well and starting to reach his potential.

    • And you got beat by Florida International and Louisiana Tech last year......    But, I mean, The U does have the highest paid players. From the Pell Grant fraud, to Shapiro handing out cash and cars, I would hope they put more in the NFL than most teams. Add on the hidden drug test to keep players eligible...    Not sure why Miami's history of NFL draft picks is relevant in general, or has any bearing on why you're football takes are any better than anyone else?
    • Another reason it doesn’t bother me if the Colts don’t make the playoffs is they’ll get shredded by the Chiefs. That goes for the rest of the AFC.
    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   Ever heard of a guy named Edgerrin James? Ask Peyton Manning and Jim Irsey who is Edgerrin James? LOL (as the legend has it, Edgerrin was bigger, and faster than Sequon Barkley. Just to make a long story short)   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
