Blockbuster deal with massive ramifications for years to come.
So is Jimmy G on the trade block or in a "wait until he is released" situation?

Yeah, I read some speculation on Twitter that this means the Jets are sticking with Darnold for at least one more year.

The Dolphins*reportedly*acquired the No. 12 pick earlier in the day in a blockbuster deal with the San Francisco 49ers. ...

Some more analysis:

https://www.nbcsports.com/edge/footb...1/brian-flores


Dolphins acquired the No. 6 and No. 156 overall picks from the Eagles in exchange for No. 12 overall, No. 123 overall, and a 2022 first-round pick.

Only minutes after Miami shipped the No. 3 overall pick to San Francisco, the organization used the No. 12 pick it received in that exchange to move back up to No. 6 overall from Philly. The Eagles reportedly attempted to trade up to No. 3 beforehand but were only trying to do so for BYU QB Zach Wilson — a telling sign the 21-year-old will be off the board at No. 2 to the Jets. The deal not only ensures the Dolphins add another offensive weapon to Tua Tagovailoa's already-stout arsenal, but that the Eagles develop and evaluate Jalen Hurts through the 2021 season. The draft is nearly one month away and is already shaping up to be the most chaotic of the last decade.

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

To follow...

Dolphins gave 2021 Pick #3

Dolphins got 2021 Pick #12, 2021 Pick #102, 2022 1st, 2023 1st


THEN

Dolphins gave 2021 Pick #12, 2021 Pick #123, 2022 1st

And Dolphins got 2021 Pick #6, 2021 Pick #156



So their net gain is:

Moved from 2021 #3 to 2021 #6
Picked up 2021 #102 (SF 3rd Round)
Moved back from 2021 #123 (MIA 4th Round) to 2021 #156 (PHI 5th Round)
Picked up 2023 1st from SF






-----------------------------

And ignoring the other picks that changed hands, SF moved up from #12 to #3, likely for a QB...and PHI moved back from #6 to #12...possibly because their QB is now likely not obtainable in the draft with SF moving ahead of them?

I think SF wants Mac Jones.

Accurate as all hell. But isn't amazingly athletic or doesn't blow you away with a huge arm. Like Matt Ryan. Or Kirk Cousins. Two QB's Shanahan loved.

Settling in at 3 should guarantee them Jones, as all the pre-draft buzz has him nowhere near the top of the draft.

If the Jets pass on drafting Wilson, there may no longer be a shred of hope that they'll ever get it right at the QB position. I could see a building team not wanting to trade up for him, but if he's sitting right there for the taking that's another story. If the Jets are saying that Darnold is their QB, well, bless their hearts. They try but the poor things just don't know any better.

I don't think you give up what SF gave up for Mac Jones.

We shall see though, never know who these teams hone in on as "their guy."

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

Mac Jones has zero athleticism. Doesn’t seem like a good fit to run the boot/play action game the Shanahans love to incorporate.

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

I would expect Jimmy G to be traded to the Pats. That to me seems like the most logical spot for him. They didn't want to let him go in begin with.

He is more of a fit for the Pats honestly

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

Yeah, a number of mocks have the Pats taking Jones if he falls to them.

I reckon the 49ers will take Wilson if the Jets don't, else Fields. They could take Lance and have him sit a year, but I'm thinking if you make that trade you do it for someone that's pretty much a day 1 starter. Especially if you can get a decent trade for Jimmy G.

Of course he has athleticism. I think you're confusing athleticism with mobility.

I was going on what Greg Cosell said about him, some highlights from his interview on the Ross Tucker football podcast

- highly efficient executor and ball distributor in a really good Alabama offense
- main question - how important to you are movement and second reaction ability? In today's NFL you constantly hear that this has become an essential trait.
- because Mac Jones is a bad athlete, almost no ability to play outside structure whatsoever
- very good sense of anticipation, good timing
- some pocket movement, not great, but enough that it's not a negative
- really good feel for throwing in zone coverage
- knows where to go with the ball quickly
- a lot of good mental traits, but also virtually no movement and second reaction traits.
- need to understand what he is and what he isn't when you draft him
