Well, at least bore the shit out of them. As hard as Jolly Roger wants to keep football in the mind’s eye 24/7/365, now is the time for nothing. Mel Kiper’s head hasn’t even been exhumed and attached to a Disney automatron president and propped in front of a desk at ESPN headquarters.
Sure, we can keep up the QWillimas/Bosa/Sweat/Josh Allen talk, because that is what we got now. We WILL get a pass rusher with our first pick. It just depends on where that pick is. We do have a thin batch of picks this draft, and that kinda sucks. One thing Baalke was able to do was round up a lot of picks. Sure, he fucked them all sideways, but we stand here with 6 picks instead of the bounty we have been used to.
So, trading out is high on the list of to-do’s for John Lynch. If we can trade down and still get our guy (likely Sweat or Allen) then more power to them. This of course is predicated on the Giants and Raiders needing to deal with us or AZ.
If you believe the hype, AZ is all about Murray. Going so far as to floating Josh Rosen for a 1st round pick. Seeing as that is a complete non-starter, the whole thing may be just a smokescreen to draw the Giants into a desperate trade to get Kyler.
As it is for me, I’d like to see us grab:
- Pass rusher/edge guy
- O line
If we can finagle picks out of NYG or Oak, go for it.
