    dominant OG would be nice...... run blocking monster. to replace long.

    TE would also be good

    a WR who can be a speedster over the top

    Depth at CB or a replacement S for haha

    depth at OLB

    I would be happy with a guard or tackle round 1. Didn't Leno play poorly at RT but well at LT? That isn't common lol.

    Massie is solid though. I'd have to guess he's average, but always healthy and a mauler.

    OLineman, CB and QB to compete with Mitch are our biggest needs. I like this years QB class and I would like to take one with one of our 2nds.

    Agreed. We should carry 3 QBs next year.

    Probably go
    round 1 - OL
    round 2 - QB if Mitch is out or shows nothing the rest of the year.

    Guys I'm really keeping an eye on as early day 2 possibilities:

    Xavier McKinney (S) - Alabama
    Trevon Diggs (CB) - Alabama <--- Stephon Diggs brother
    Shaun Wade (CB) - Ohio State
    K'Lavon Chaisson (EDGE) - LSU
    Tee Higgins (WR) - Clemson
    Joe Burrow (QB) - LSU
    Jacob Eason (QB) - Washington
    Jake Fromm (QB) - Georgia

    These are all potential needs for us and some of these guys probably go round 1, but should all be on our radar. It's one of the best WR classes in a while, so I think you have to get one at some point (probably early), there's maybe 7 QB's right now that have a shot at round 1 (not saying they'll all go round 1, but will be considered there by a lot of teams), and there's decent CB depth in this class too.

    Honestly, if he is still there, I would love Jake Fromm. Not that I am giving up on Mitch, but Fromm is talented and could come in and compete day 1. Let Nagy work with him and see if he can pick it up faster.
    I donít think he will make it to the 2nd. But thatís where I would go.

    I like Fromm as well. I don't think his ceiling is all that high, but his floor is, and I like his fit in this offense.

    I think there's a decent chance he makes it to the 2nd because there are a bunch of QB's (7 IMO - including Fromm) capable of going in the
    1st.

    I just have a feeling if they brought in someone to compete...they would have a better feel for the offense than Mitch immediately. Better off moving on and letting him try his luck elsewhere than humiliating him like that. He seems like a nice guy.

    I mean it depends on the guy. Mitch isn't the only guy with the kinds of problems that he has. If we are going in another direction, I'd rather move on for the simple reason that I don't want there to be a hesitation to switch guys, and as long as Mitch is on the team, there will be a hesitation to want to bench him. I'm all for vet QB (a la Foles/Flacco) & draft a guy if we end up moving on personally.

    Yeah, i'm obviously just excessively pessimistic on him lol


    I'd be happy with Foles or Flacco ; i'd imagine Foles would be costly for some reason.

    I like the idea of a bet. Not so sure on Flacco since he is a statue and I donít think a good fit for the offense. I like the idea of Foles to an extent, but he is kind of the same, just a little more mobile than Flacco. Maybe Tyrod would be the best fit for this type of offense as a stop gap for a year or 2?

    Assuming our line returns to pass blocking the way they did last year, I don't think this is an offense that needs a super mobile QB. Just someone who distributes the ball around and knows where to go and who can get the ball to our playmakers. Also, I think a big problem with immobile QBs is whether or not they're able to get the ball out fast. I think guys like Flacco/Foles have shown they can do that.

    My concern with Tyrod is his inability to stretch the field ; but I'd like him. He would probably cost nothing or close to it.

    I prefer mobile qb's, but Foles is just the perfect fit imo. Go Minshew ; Foles and a rookie would be a perfect situation next year

    Aside from Mitch coming back from injury and lighting it up so much that he earns an extension.

    I wouldnít call foles a perfect fit lol. He has had some success in this system and is familiar with Nagy. But heís still a bottom 3rd to 4th tier QB. I do think with this defense he is a good option, but he is going to cost a lot and doesnít really do anything other than give us a slightly better shot than Mitch/Daniel.
