Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

do you just roll with EB for a year and see what pops up next year versus settling for a dude that could just be wheel spinning for the next 4 years

I shouldn't even need to debate you on this idea. Surely you must know why we shouldn't keep EB. Isn't it bad enough that Mayhew and Hurney are still around?

Big changes in the front office weren't likely to happen right away. Front offices have been scouting and putting together intel for a couple months now. Next year is when we may see some changes.

Do you really want EB getting his paws on a highly routed rookie QB after seeing the way he handled Sam??

EB was a disaster for a young QB... Mahomes was the exception because he's literally a top 5 QB ever already. The odds of us landing a guy like that are like winning the lotto... Drake Maye, JD , Caleb , will all have to develop quickly

I'm not willing to take that gamble. When you are in the position to take a QB at 2 you pull the trigger. No guarantee what so ever that Daniels will be there in a trade back. Then what? Hope to trade up in a worse QB draft next season after trotting out some cast off QB and writing off 2024? Who know where they will be picking next year, it could cost what you got in the trade back. And for what? To lose a year and possible settle for a worse QB prospect?

No I believe they will stay at 2 and take whichever QB they like the best. And I'm fine with that.

He's the same Nix that was bad in the SEC... He was good in Oregon because the PAC12 Plays zero defense...

Well they donít just ďhopeĒ someone will still be there. They will communicate with any other team between 2 and 7 that might need a quarterback. I hear what you are saying, but it isnít exactly blind faith.

Just pointing out that landing your quarterback and picking up major draft capital is better than just landing your quarterback. Also that with Ron gone and Peters here there is a chance that we can accomplish such things.

But it's not just the teams picking 2-7. Any number of teams could trade with one of those teams and jump ahead of the Commanders. No I firmly believe when you have a chance like this you pull the trigger and don't mess around. And I believe that's exactly what they will do, especially if they really like Maye more than Daniels which is entirely possible.

No. Nobody can trade with teams picking 2-7 and jump ahead of us. We pick second. The only team anyone can trade with to move ahead of us is Chicago. If some team trades with Chicago to jump ahead of us there is nothing we can do about that.

That isnít the scenario I am talking about though. What I am saying is that if we are on the clock, and we want Daniels or Maye or whoever than you work those phones. You try and trade back to a spot where you can still get the guy and gain major picks also. It isnít based on a gamble it is based on intel and some other team that wants say Harrison Jr at 2.

I think you missed his point there, punch.
What he means is if you trade back to 7 what's to stop someone below that trading up to 3-6 to pinch your QB?
