I honestly don't get what Wilson, Jones, or Lance offer that he doesn't.

If it's the Ohio State thing, that is just stupid.
Lawrence and Wilson have been locked in at the top 2 spots all offseason from what I recall, haven't heard anything about Fields going #2.

Lawrence-Fields were the 1-2 locks during the college football season .. past couple months Wilson replaced Fields, Jones jumped up the board and Lance kinda dropped to no. 5 best QB.

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

Albert Breer for SI was one of the most accurate nfl mock draft guys last year .. he only does one mock, drops a day or two before the draft.

Darrisaw is his pick for us. Makes a ton of sense. If he is there, take him.

apparently he did several mocks this year ...

Not that Fields was going to be selected #2 to the Jets. I mean the Jets are the Jets. Just because because they are supposedly locked in on Wilson, doesn't mean that Wilson is the better prospect.

Prior to the offseason, and before the draft order was official, there were only two QBs that were projected to be immediate franchise QBs. We know who was #1, and Fields was the #2.

Cooley and a few others actually have Wilson ranked above Lawrence. I honestly haven't heard anyone call Fields the clear #2 prospect. At least not during this offseason.

2 years ago Haskins was being talked up as a top 5 pick and perhaps the first QB off the board during his 2019 season. A lot changes from September to the following May.

Re: Draft Week Baby!! - Thread 3.0

And now the Falcons are accepting offers for Julio Jones.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ia-peter-king/

Surprises? Keep an eye on Atlanta. I can’t predict any bombshells. But a few things would not surprise me. Most notably, the Falcons putting the framework of a trade together for star wideout Julio Jones, and making the trade effective June 2. That way, Atlanta could split Jones’ cap charge between 2021 and 2022 instead of getting bashed with it all this year. So if such a trade happens, I expect it could involve a future pick or picks, nothing this year. (A future second-round pick as compensation seems fair to me.) Because such a trade wouldn’t be official till June, no picks in this draft could be involved. As for the interested team or teams, I would guess Las Vegas; Jon Gruden couldn’t resist Antonio Brown, and I doubt he could resist Julio Jones. New England too, and a couple of teams with clear receiver needs—Tennessee and Baltimore.

Now, the Falcons don’t really want to trade Julio Jones. He’s a franchise legend. But he’s 32, entering his 11th season, coming off a banged-up year with seven games missed due to injury, and the Falcons are in cap jail. If they could off-load his money and cushion it by splitting it between this year ($7.75 million) and next ($15.5 million), Atlanta’s cap charge on Jones this year goes down by a tad more than $15 million.

One final note here, to be very clear: I am not reporting the Falcons will trade Jones, or will probably trade Jones. I am saying it would not surprise me if it happened.

Three more trade names to watch:

• It won’t surprise me if the Niners make Jimmy Garoppolo more available than he’s been. In other words, instead of trying to get a first-round pick for him, maybe considering taking a two for him. I wonder if the Patriots would deal the 46th pick in the draft, or their second-rounder in 2022, for their old friend.

• I won’t be surprised if the Raiders move defensive end Carl Nassib.

• It won’t surprise me, if the Broncos do not draft a quarterback, to see Denver make a mid-round deal for Teddy Bridgewater with Carolina.

Re: Draft Week Baby!! - Thread 3.0

One thing I love about the new regime is they are not leaking out anything.. All of the rumors are just "sources" and could all be smokescreens. It makes for a fun night tomorrow

I've heard that about Wilson too.

The only think that is clear to me at this point is that there is a lot of disagreement on how these QBs should be ranked.

A lot of it is fit I guess, but I've seen Fields mocked at 32 and lower recently, which is absurd.

Re: Draft Week Baby!! - Thread 3.0

Fields is definitely a way better prospect than Haskins was. I could care less about the Ohio St thing. I don't think he'd get past NE if he started to slide.

I think we'll see some surprises with regard to when these QBs actually come off the board.

Re: Draft Week Baby!! - Thread 3.0

Per the Athletic:

With the Patriots, these trade discussions are a strong indication they’ve found conviction in at least one of those top QBs, and word is they think highly of Justin Fields – highly enough that they’ve even spoken with the Falcons about the fourth pick."

Re: Draft Week Baby!! - Thread 3.0

Bronco's traded for Bridgewater. Suspect that rules them out drafting a QB and it'll be a battle between him and Lock to start.

Depending on what the Panthers do I can see Bucky Brooks latest mock being very close to what happens. If the Panthers don't draft a QB (all in on Darnold) then I can easily see Jones or Fields coming to us at 19, as the Pats will take one of them, whether they trade up or not. Could make our decision harder; how do you ignore a potential franchise QB falling to you, even if he may not be your ideal choice?

If Fields is there at 19, you take him. Period. I do no think there is any realistic chance that it will happen. But if it does, taking Fields at 19 is a no brainer and the biggest steal in the last five years of the draft.
