    Would the Panthers take the #15 pick and next year's 1st from the Patriots? Maybe. If the Broncos want to make sure that doesn't happen, they'd probably offer their 3rd or 4th to drop one spot.
    This is the correct thinking, paranoia another team will jump you even if itís one pick. However in this scenario for a team thatís not winning right now and rebuilding if someone offers you to trade back 8 spots and their first next year you immediately take it.

    Ehh if Sewell or Pitts is on the board I donít think Iím taking that. If theyíre gone then sure.

    Because Darnold played his college career in a normal year against normal defenses to use as a frame of reference. No way am I taking a 1-year wonder that occurred during a season when most teamsí personnel differed significantly from week to week. Everything about this season was tainted and suspect. Wilson may end up being fine, but when evaluating on collegiate performance Darnold at least can be viewed relative to a normal standard, under which he was viewed towards the top in a strong class.

    And Fields will suck ass in the NFL because he is a tOSU QB, like every single other tOSU system QB before him who has sucked ass. You can say that the past does not dictate the future, but Iím going with the 100 years of solid precedent until it changes. They keep getting drafted, and they keep sucking ass. The only interesting aspect of Fieldsí career will be where he falls on the over/under set by Haskins as to how long before he is out of the league.

    Fair take. The PAC 12 is notorious for elite defenses after all. And turnovers are basically successful completions, just to the other team.

    Fields had splinters in his ass because of Jake Fromm. Pass.

    Fromm had splinters in his ass because of Eason until App knocked him out of the game.

    More evidence that Smart is a moron

    Yeah, Watson is too toxic and his legal situation won't be resolved till next offseason. He could even go on the commissioner's exempt list. I still think Tepper is making a mistake by refusing to look at a rookie. Lance and Fields have more potential than Darnold, and you could have gotten Tyrod before Houston to be the bridge/mentor. But it sounds like most of the ESPN talking heads like Darnold better than Wilson, so maybe they're right.

    Each team's worst FA signing
    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...2021-offseason

    The Erving signing doesn't make a great deal of sense, however, as Carolina ponied up $10 million over the next two years to acquire the former New York Jet. That's quite a large contract for a player PFF graded as the absolute worst of the 151 offensive linemen who have played at least 1,500 snaps since the start of the 2018 season.
    So we got a Jet QB and a Jet OL to protect him. They go with a former Jet WR last year. Hmmmm.....
    I don't think getting Jets scraps makes the team better. We all know Jets means Just End The Season.

    Yeah, but the Bills take our scraps and have improved significantly. Hell WFT won the NFC Least with the same strategy.

    The best explanation for the Erving signing that I saw is the salary cap is going to go up significantly next year, so anybody on a reasonable 2 year deal is a steal. He's played all five positions. He's probably just going to be a rotation guy. If he starts, then we have a starting OL for cheap.

    Watson will go to the Patriots for a ham sandwich and he will win 3 Super Bowls and everyone will just kind of forget he rapes people.

    Yeah, but it's a solid signing if management didn't pay too much. He should still have a few years of good play left in him.

    So you want to compare the performance of USC QBs in the NFL to the performance of tOSU QBs in the NFL? Seems smart.
