Tell ya one thing, QWilliams solidified his spot as a stud in the draft in the combine. Likely a top-3 stud. His combine was very successful (4.83 40 time at 303 lb) and it already added to his draft stock. I figured that since we re-upped Arik Armstead, we would simply go for Josh Allen and be done with it.
BUT (there’s always a big but) there are three teams right behind us that might want to trade up and get their quarterback. The Giants, who say they are fine with Eli Manning (?!?), the Redskins, who have to cover for the loss of young Sir Alex, and the Raiders, whose head coach is frustrated with Derek Carr.
The quarterbacks in question are the mercurial Kyler Murray, the consensus #1 qb in this draft ion Dwayne Haskins, and the most polished guy, Daniel Jones. Rumors around the combine had Jones being the fridst QB picked in this draft. Another scenario presented comes from Walter football, who has us trading down with the Giants and taking their 1st round pick, 6th overall. In their scenario, the Giants get Haskins, and we still get QWilliams, as the Raiders take Murray, the Jets take Josh Allen, and the Redskins take Jones.
I could live with that as we’d get some additional picks from the NYGs and still get Williams.
