Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

My assessment for what it is worth.

Ranking the Skins top needs.
#1 Obviously QB as the QBs we currently have are major downgrades from a below average QB situation last year. Chance it will be addressed with first pick higher than 99%.
#2 LOT No one on roster is the probable starter and only the back-up depth has been addressed in FA (Lucus) Prediction Round 1 pick (Trade up) or first of the picks in 2d round.
#3 CB. A major need that got worse in free agency. Doubt coaching staff considers Davis or Forbes as a viable starters, but may have to make do. Prediction 3rd round.
#4 DE. Position addressed with back-up talent in FA, but may risk Ferrel as starter. Due to deep draft at position good chance this need is addressed prior to CB. Chance of trade up to 1st round. Prediction 2d round.
#5 ROT weak starter. Prediction 5th round or lower.
#6 TE who is the starter? Prediction 3rd rd.
#7 WR lost Samuels, 3rd round.

Good list. I'm REALLY concerned about Left Tackle and Corner.

Yes, we need a QB, but the team is addressing that with the #2 pick. Lucas is fine, and I believe he outplayed Leno last season, but basically we are at the mercy of whether a good tackle is available at 36 or 40. I honestly would not be against moving back to the first round to get a tackle.

I think for corner, there are still some free agents out there. And you can count on DQ and Joe Whitt to work their magic with Forbes and BSJ (although with BSJ it'd be a miracle if they can get anything out of him).

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

My assessment - we are going to see a lot more assessments before the draft, And we all are going to go stir crazy before that Thursday. I still blame Snyder.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

Good list, but you can't fix all the holes in one offseason. With 6 top 100 picks you can have a good try though. DE and #1 CB may need to be attended to next year. I expect AP to be looking long term, filling holes in the short term relies on good coaching and getting the most out of what we have. So we should do a lot better on that front at least.

My assessment is that your assessment is essentially assessing the obvious assessment of the currently assessed situation. Therefore, assess away!

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

We got ammo with a lot picks on day 2, I think if there is a tackle they love at the end of round 1 they could move up and grab that 5 year option.

There are holes all over the roster and all the one year deals hasnít changed anything in long term fixes atÖDE, TE, RB, CB, QB, LB, OT and even Kicker. Throw in WR as another area where there isnít anything proven behind Terry.

Only area we can check off so far in free agency is Center with Stromberg behind a 3 year established guy.

Best player available all over the field, our needs are everywhere.

Well, I indicated that with where I was projecting the picks for the holes. A strong opportunity is there to fix 3 holes - IMO that will be QB, LOT and the DE positions. (Note given the rejoinders from my previous post I will endeavor to eschew trigger locutions in the hereafter).

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread



In this same simulation, the computer had Vikings trading up to No. 5 to get McCarthy. I think that's actually very realistic. Really can't go out of the Top 5 if you want one of the 4 guys. So basically trading down is not bloody likely.
