    I don't get the Falcons quarterback links.

    Matt Ryan is a great QB and only 35 years old. Lots of miles left on him yet. And I don't see any QB they could draft being an upgrade.

    One position I think you can take off the board is O line. I still see fans and analysts mocking AVT or Jenkins. Just don't see it. They already have Winters, Murray, Pugh, Gaillard and Jones vying for the RG spot. Possibly Gilbert too. Same goes for RT where it's likely already in pen for Beachum but also Jones and Gilbert vying for it.

    Hard to see anything but CB right now, but I still think they trade back a little and pick up more picks.

    I wouldn’t say great. Think he’s a top 10-12 QB nowadays. Why you say “only 35” like that’s not old? lol.

    Also, you don’t know when you’re going to be drafting this high again. Worst thing you can do is be in QB purgatory. Falcons are a good amount of pieces behind. Gear up for the future.

    AVT would an investment in the future when they part ways with Pugh or 'if - when' Jones moves to RT.

    The 49ers have Jimmy G and Josh Rosen as the QBs on their roster. They will be acquiring a QB by either trading up or using their pick to trade for one. If they are able to do so without using their first round pick, I think you are correct.

    Jets are the LAST team I expect them to trade with though.

    If they could get out of his contract after this year, I would agree, but he counts for 40 mil in dead money in 2022. You aren't going to sit a QB 2 years and you aren't going to eat 40 mil for your backup. I think they want to compete and Arthur Smith will build the running game to take some pressure off Ryan similar to what he did with Tannehill.

    There are some ties there. It is tough to determine the gap between 4th year Sam Darnold and Zach Wilson. Also, the Jets have a LT, have a DT and just signed a high dollar WR and DE. The draft really doesn't stack well for them if they don't take a QB in terms of value. If they don't take Wilson and trade Darnold, I just don't see them sticking at 2.

    EDIT - I also believe the 49ers will be the most aggressive to get a QB.

    Eh, I don’t think so. I think Darnold is already baked. I think it’s nearly guaranteed they’re taking Wilson.


    Only team that kind of makes sense of trading back is Atlanta, & even that might be too steep of a trade back.


    Lynch & Shanny seem to be the alter version of Snead & McVay. Just playing it safe instead of being aggressive.

    and this is what I think will be different this year. Only one season over 6 wins in 4 years. They are ready to make a move. Darnold, Watson, or a trade up. Mark it down.

    Better to draft a qb a year too early than a year too late. Not every web plays until they’re 40. If they have a mediocre year and go 8-8 they won’t have the opportunity to draft a top prospect without giving up capitol.
    It appears if you are drafting in the top 5 the smart thing to do ( providing the talent is warranted) teams should draft a qb, Cb, pass rusher, or Ot. There are exceptions but imho these are the most impactful ( and expensive) positions on the field.

    But that is it. They would be drafting the 3rd QB to sit for two years before they see what they have and with having a first time HC. Teams aren't worried about 3 years down the road.

    Remember Arron Rodgers. That worked out pretty well.
