The big loser from today’s trades is Carolina. I doubt Atlanta will trade their 4th overall pick to a divisional rival. Sending a day 2 pick to the Jets for Darnold may be their best move if someone else trades up to 4 (Broncos I’m looking at you).

Any team looking for help at QB could do a lot worse than trading for Darnold.

Sooo... do we finish the mock 1st round? Or tear it up and start fresh with this new info?

I could go either way. Mocking the first 20 picks seems like a reasonable place to finish, but I’m happy to continue if others want to. Otherwise we could do mock 2.0 with the updated draft order.

Reckon we have a re-do from Botman's pick at no3. Easy enough to repeat selections for those not impacted.

Alrighty, assuming a no trade mock, I’ll stick with the 1.0 version and go Kyle Pitts to Atlanta at #4.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson (All)
2. New York Jets - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU (All)
3. San Francisco 49ers - Justin Fields, QB, OSU (Matt)
4. Atlanta Falcons - Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida (Boney)

Well, boney didn't want it, he suggested a different order, so figured I'd jump in while I was there coz I was about to drive home from the coast.
Just home from the coast, figured there would be more picks.

Ol Botman is here to right the wrongs for 1.0.
The Bengals sprint to the podium and select the 20 year FREAK SHOW tackle out of Oregon, Penei Sewell. As a franchise they can not let Joe Burrow get hit the way he was last year.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson (All)
2. New York Jets - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU (All)
3. San Francisco 49ers - Justin Fields, QB, OSU (Matt)
4. Atlanta Falcons - Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida (Boney)
5. Cincinatti Bengals - Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon (Botman)

Added benefit it stops you picking Davonta Smith for the Bengals. :D

God, im fascinated about which QB the Niners are going to take
Im not a big Mac Jones fan, but his best comp, and im far from the first to say it, is Matt Ryan, and Kyle Shanny almost and should have won a SB with Matt Ryan. And some well connected people seem to think Mac might be the pick... Which to me is WILD.

But Fields and Lance would be SOOO **** fun in that offence.
Imma spend the next month living on NFL draft twitter looking for any and all info about where the Niners are going with this.

I don't care what these well connected people say and even if it's a direct quote from John Lynch. They didn't trade up to 3 for Mac Jones.

I wasn't prepared for the Lions pick, but I've just had a look, and WR seems the consensus, even with a couple saying Micah Prasons. Unlike Lucy, im racing Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama to the stand at 7.

I like Waddle, i have some vague hopes and prayers that one of Pitts/Smith/Chase/Waddle will end up being available for Philly @ 12, which would be perfect
Waddle has incredible speed/power... think he'll be a star if he lands in a good spot. Detroit is... not a good spot :lol:

I think one of them will absolutely be available at 12, most likely Smith or Waddle.

This mock works out nicely for the Panthers again, they’ll take QB 4 without having to trade up. Trey Lance come on down!

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson (All)
2. New York Jets - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU (All)
3. San Francisco 49ers - Justin Fields, QB, OSU (Matt)
4. Atlanta Falcons - Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida (Boney)
5. Cincinatti Bengals - Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon (Botman)
6. Miami Dolphins - Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Clemson (NR)
7. Detroit Lions - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama (Matt)
8. Carolina Panthers - Trey Lance, QB, NDS (Boney)

Im toying with a mock draft where the Falcons trade back with NE and we go:

Lawrence, Wilson, Lance, Fields/Mac in the top 4
Bengals go Sewell, Miami take Chase, Detroit take Waddle, Carolina take Fields/Mac, Denver (have Noah Fant) go Surtain, Cowboys go Farley/Horn, Giants take Slater and then Pitts is still there for the Eagles @ 12
But it's probably more fan fiction than it is a mock draft :lol:

If i had to guess, with the Falcons probably being unlikely to want to give their pick to division rival Panthers to get a QB, i think Atlanta are probably coming back to this spot and Denver go up and get the 4th qb, but for this exercise Denver miss the boat again with the QB's here. The more i think about the more i like Micah Parsons with the Broncos. He's a three down LB, who has very good natural pass rushing ability, which is perfect to be in the middle of a Fangio scheme that likes to disguise and send pressure in unusual ways.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson (All)
2. New York Jets - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU (All)
3. San Francisco 49ers - Justin Fields, QB, OSU (Matt)

5. Cincinatti Bengals - Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon (Botman)
6. Miami Dolphins - Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Clemson (NR)
7. Detroit Lions - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama (Matt)
8. Carolina Panthers - Trey Lance, QB, NDS (Boney)
9. Denver Broncos - Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State (Botman)

You never know ay. Maybe teams have a positional value concern with picking a TE in the top 10? A Goedert/Pitts duo would be unreal

Agreed, this trade makes too much sense. The only smidgen of doubt I have is the fact that the Broncos have a new GM... sometimes new GMs are hesitant to pull the trigger on a new QB in year 1, as the wrong move can see their dream job go up in flames really fast. Delaying their QB pick gives them a bit more time.

Sorry. A bit distracted today. What happened to Lucy?

Anyway onto Dallas. They are desperate for help stopping the pass and Patrick Surtain II is their guy.
