    I don't get Pitts to the Falcons. Receiving is the least of their worries. They already have 2 of the best wide receivers in the league. Possible the best #1 and #2 combo. And Gage at WR3 have nearly 800 yards.

    And they got nearly 600 yards from Hayden Hurst at TE, plus Hurst is a good blocker.

    The Falcons were 5th in receiving yards last year. What exactly is Pitts going to add they don't already have? Any yards he has they would have anyway between those guys, he'd just be stealing yards from someone else.

    They are weak at DE, LB, they could do with a CB. Makes massive sense for them to trade back. Which is why I think they will.

    Simmons is S/ILB ... Zaven would be an ILB/EDGE.

    Where he has an advantage is that he would be a natural LB being asked to play LB.

    The unfortunate part is that he has said he prefers to play an off-ball LB role vs an EDGE role, and I believe we would be using him in a hybrid capacity. So, we risk drafting another player who had success in one role and then putting him at another.

    All this said, I like Collins as a player and feel he fits our division very well. I don't like using another high draft pick on an ILB. A situation where I like the player, don't mind the spot selecting him, but hate the positional value.

    My board for the Cardinals looks like this right now. (no order)

    Kyle Pitts
    Ja'Marr Chase
    Jaylen Waddle
    Penei Sewell
    Rashawn Slater
    Pat Surtain
    Jaycee Horn

    Then I have these players with a clarification.

    Greg Newsome (if he fits the system)
    Caleb Farley (if medical is really good)


    After that I am looking to trade back. If we can't, Collins, AVT, and Parsons are also options.

    @Stout as I said, they are trying to trade up.

    Almost my exact list but with Vera Tucker as well. Newsome is the trade back

    That would be disgustingly stupid, IMO.

    Two things bother me about this.

    The practicalities of a 166lb WR in the NFL going up against the best CBs at 190-200lb. That's simply too lightweight. He would be a massive outlier.

    But more so, why is he 166lb? He's 6ft tall. At that height he should comfortably carry 190+. Is there are lack of effort or interest in putting the work in?
