Not a huge fan of your top 3 picks to be honest. Bortles is a decent prospect and many people like him, but I'm not sure if he's a great fit with norv. Besides that I grade him as a low 2nd

Haha I'm not very high on either, so I don't like the trade up for him. He doesn't seem to possess great instincts and just didn't make enough plays, I think he's overrated for having played at Alabama. Calvin Pryor is lightyears better IMO

Skov is a decent pick I guess and fits a big need. McCullers, Baptiste, and Ellis are some of my favorites in this draft, but why both McCullers and Ellis?

Lot of money in free agency but I like it Very Happy

That makes sense, but they're both best suited to a NT role. Its certainly not an asinine strategy, but personally I'd rather take a guy who's more of an interior pass rusher that can be added to the rotation

I like the trade down, but not a huge fan of Bortles.

I would rather have Calvin Pryor or even Deone Bucannon for S then Haha for reasons already mentioned.

I would swap SJB with Skov - I think former is gonna be huge riser come draft, and Skov is gonna be someone who falls.

I am ok with McCullers if Zimmer can light a fire in him and he can grow to be someone that is fundamentally sound.

Would still like to draft 2 interior lineman, but it wouldn't be a huge priority.

I think you could really swap out any of the top three QBs I just think one will fall. I just really like bortles size and in the Tape I've seen he looks like a little big Ben and a little luck

I may have overhyped Ha-Ha maybe lamarcus Joyner to be our nickel corner
And either bailey/Pryor would be a better draft ??

Kyle Van Not and Daquan Jones and then Will Clarke instead of Daniel McCullers. But hey man its your mock so you do what you would want to see happen. Trading up after a trade down is a good idea, I just don't like the guy you took. Its right idea though cause it's the perfect range to get Calvin Pryor at and he's a great fit for our defense. Even Haha could be a good pick

I personally love Bortles, but I don't think he falls to 14 tbh. I think there's also some better fits for this offense too. I like Haha, but I also think he's overrated. He is going to be a very solid safety, but i'm not sure I ever see him being in that elite category or anything. Skov I like a lot though, not going to complain there.
