The last two drafts during the Quinn have been amazing so far so lets see if we can make it 2 in a row!

Names I've been seeing linked to us on twitter/rumor sites today... Reddick, Engram, McKinley, Harris, Willis.

One rumor is we're looking to move up around 5 spots to get Engram. Would be interesting...

I keep hearing that we want to jump up in the draft. Who do u think it will be? I'm hoping it's for Riddick or Barnett.

If Reddick or Barnett fall into the late teens, look for us to make a move IMO. If they get taken top 15, idk who we may target in a trade up. Like I said I've seen Engram as a name at TE, also seen Harris and Lamp as guys that we may have to trade up for.

I am almost 100% convinced we don't pick at 31. Either a trade up or down

I dont have a problem with Engram. But to trade up for him would be stupid. I don't see him going in the first round. But that's just my opinion.

I somewhat agree about trading up for him, but I could see him sneaking into round 1.

I can't see it. I see the kid from Miami going to NYG and then after that, I don't see another team that's gonna worry about a TE. We are in serious need of a DE and RG. I'd be happy with Jake Butt in the later rounds than trading up for Engram.

Engram is getting mocked a lot in the first, the reason I don't care a whole lot for it is I think we already have a receiving TE in Hoop. Engram is dynamic though for sure. I'm not sure we "need" a DE necessarily. We need to improve our pass rush. A specialty rusher, even in round 1 would be well worth it IMO. Definitely need an RG. Really like Asiata from Utah in round 2.

I think we could pick any position out of DE S OL TE

I would honestly like to see baker if there are no good DE options or lamp is gone

I mean I get what u're saying on "need" but when 1 player has almost half ur sacks, it needs to get better. Clayborn is injury prone. Don't know how Shelby is gonna do. And with guys like Barnett or Riddick, they could come in and produce right away. My fav player is Hooker. I'd love for him to be our new FS.

As far as guards go, I like Asiata, Johnson and Feeny. So any of them in the later rounds would be fine with me. Just don't wanna trade up in the first to grab an OG when we don't need to.

I think between Clayborn, Crawford, Shelby, Reed, we could suffice at DE tbh. Think we just need a rusher to pair with Beasley on passing downs. I agree a guy like Barnett or Reddick who can do a lot more than just rush would be nice, but may be too steep of a price to trade up and get.

I agree with all 3 of those guards. All could be our potential starting RG if taken

Same. Budda is going to be a very good FS
