    How would a team with the first 53 picks do in the NFL ???

    First, I realize this is not possible. I am wondering how you think a new team would do with the first 53 picks in the draft. Factoring in youth, lack of veteran leadership, etc.

    There's also a huge difference between the strictly top 53 players and the first 53 players that could create a proper depth chart and team.

    An offense around Bortles, Evans, Watkins, Ebron, Hyde, with Matthews, Robinson, Yankey, and Martin on the line wouldn't be bad. Maybe average.

    But a line of Clowney, Donald, Jernigan, Tuitt with LB's like Shazier, Mack, Barr, Mosley, and CB's like Gilbert, Dennard and Fuller would be nice.

    I would say that could end up a 7-9 to 9-7 team.

    first year horrible, 2nd-3rd could do decent to pretty well, 4th could be a playoff team, then no way you can sign them all after that.

    Would be an awful season due to inexperience, lack of motivation, and egos would arise since there probably all top pick stars

    If I was a GM and my team had the first 53 picks in the draft, I'd trade a bunch of picks to other teams in exchange for future draft picks and develop a 20-year dynasty.
    "...more talking went on between us all until [Roethlisberger and his entourage] left the bar. Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    I'd agree the team wouldn't be that great the first year or two.

    The funny thing is people actually think a team from college not made up of superstars could actually beat even the jags.

    this team could do work on defense and ball control offense. Pretty sure they would be better then jags especially on offense and somewhat on defense

    I can see the first year being kind of tough, but the 2nd year onwards that would be a good team(especially year 3 and 4). If the 1st year nets you a high pick, you can replace the busts with new draft picks. The right personalities and character can help offset the loss of not having any veterans.

    I figured I'd be arguing they'd be awful in year one, but I could honestly see them doing pretty well off the bat, based on this year's class. Even as rookies the defense could be a top 15 unit, and the OL would probably do fairly well. QB would be a big question mark, but I could see Hyde having a solid year behind that OL, and the WR depth is pretty solid (as well as a nice TE duo of ASJ and Ebron). I definitely see them losing some games pretty bad due to inexperience, but there's too much talent for them to tank that bad, unless you put them in a division like NFCW. I could see a team like that contending in the AFCS.

    And naturally, I'd imagine the team would be unstoppable by year 3, but there would be a lot of ruined players due to them being thrown to the wolves before they're ready.

    I was actually going to say, based on this class, that I think it has some missing pieces, namely at the captain positions.

    Many feel the QBs are so-so, there's no Kuechly type captain ILB, and the safeties aren't really regarded as potential elites.
