    I don’t hate the picks, but I don’t understand the need.

    Really?

    He's played three different positions on offense, and we need help at all three. This is one efficient fucking draft pick. :pound:

    His best position is probably returner.

    So he kinda covers five positions for us LOL.

    Emergency QB, backup receiver, backup back, punt returner, kick returner.

    Def has great field vision. Hope he can run the ball from the RB spot. That would make this pick make more sense. Glad to finally have a return guy tho

    I guess it depends on how you look at the situation. Williams, Ruggs, and Renfrow are getting majority of snaps at WR. Waller and Moreau are taking snaps at TE. Jacobs getting balls out of backfield. That is a lot of mouths to feed already. Meanwhile we’ve still got poor depth at LB and Safety. IDK, just not feeling this draft much.

    We literally drafted an Z, Y and Z WR. I would have been fine with the Ruggs and Edwards but we are reportedly moving the Bowden to RB and he’ll compete with both Richard and Renfrow.

    Really it’s so bizarre you just gotta roll with it.

    I’m super curious how it pans out.

    I agree with this, although I wanted a big catch radius guy and I’m happy we drafted Edwards. But tripling down? Sure hope he can block and play 3rd down RB. Otherwise, how does he get on the field?

    Williams makes 10 mill a year . He has to play very well to keep his contract here. If he misses more games he’s gone. Renfrow is a lil guy who got his rib broken and lung punctured last season. Agholor is a rental. Nobody else worth sweating over.

    Now you have 3 cheap guys hand picked in place for 4+ years. And your skill positions on offense are filled w youth. IF Carriota ain’t the guy, the next young QB has weapons already in the system Grudens running here until 2034

    If Bowden plays RB it makes even more sense. He can fill tons of spots as mr versatile. Edwards is a chain mover, we didn’t have one w size. Williams make plays downfield.Renfow small slot. Edwards will run the slant and drag for us. Ruggs is the big play. Kentucky does it all including throw and wildcat
    Agholor is a vet who earns a role maybe early as rookies acclimate.

    Edwards also blocks which I’m guessing they love. Jacobs not great in passing game btw makes sense to me. we have 3-4 good run blocking wrs now. Not too shabby

    This draft was a hilarious one for me.

    All these years of saying "go BPA" and joking I'd take nine receivers and here is Mayock firing away.

    I don't love it but I don't hate it. I thought all our division rivals did well though unfortunately.

    Hopefully Mayock pulls 3 gems tomorrow morning.

    We needed a #2 RB. This is that guy.

    He's not the one I wanted, but he certainly gives us some versatility and flexibility on offense.

    And, well, we know Turtle Pussy is going to throw the ball to whoever is closest to him. Having a RB with WR hands and the ability to make a play after catching a 4 yard pass makes a ton of sense for us right now.

    I would have much preferred a more proven, high volume RB. But, this kid could be a really fun addition to the offense.

    It's the other pick that doesn't make any fucking sense...

    We’re a dome team now so maybe the old way is over. Who needs anything except a superior pass offense.
    Hopefully we have put that together.
