Tommy Mock 2.0

  1. Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma
  2. Kingsbury gets to start off his tenure with a QB tailor-made to run his offense. Murray brings an unprecedented skill set to the position and will instantly jump-start this lethargic offense.
  3. San Fransisco 49rs- Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio St;

Despite adding the inconsistent Dee Ford to their end group, the 49rs can’t pass up on a chance to add the best pass rusher in the draft. If this were to come to fruition, San Fransisco would have one of the NFL’s youngest and most talented defensive lines.

  1. New York Jets- Quinnen Williams; Ideally I think the Jets would prefer to move down with one of the QB hungry teams, that being said, Williams is too good to pass. Pairing him with fellow Williams, Leonard, the two would form a dynamic and imposing interior tandem.
  2. Okland Raiders- Josh Allen EDGE/LB Kentucky; The Raiders need to add emerging talent almost everywhere. With Allen, they get a versatile piece for new DC Paul Guenther. Allen can help out a weak LB corps or an equally weak EDGE group, with elite talent to boot.
  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-  Jonah Williams OT/G Alabama; Despite needing help all over their defense, this team will live and die with Jameis Winston, and protecting him should be priority #1. Williams is worlds better than current starting RT Demar Dotson and can slot in at RG if they wanna keep Doston as a starter.
  4. New York Giants- Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State; While it looks like Dave Gettleman are comfortable with Eli Manning going forward, a succession plan needs to be put in place. Dwayne Haskins will benefit from sitting behind Eli Manning and his skill set meshes well with the various RAC options the Giants currently have.
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars- Jawan Taylor OT Florida; With the acquisition of Nick Foles the Jaguars finally have a competent QB in-house. This whole draft should be dedicated to giving Foles all the tools possible to make this team a super bowl contender. With Taylor, the Jaguars get an immediate upgrade at their RT spot.
  6. Detroit Lions- Ed Oliver DL Houston; The Lions will have a multitude of options come draft night with multiple needs to fill. In Oliver they get a scheme versatile lineman who I think will dominate in the NFL. Combined with the Trey Flowers signing, the Lions are on their way to building the dominate line they’ve so greatly lacked in the past couple years.
  7. Buffalo Bills- DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss; The Bills did a nice job of getting John Brown and Cole Beasley last month, two supporting veterans who I like as nice pieces for Josh Allen. With DK Metcalf, the Bills get an alpha WR1 who fits perfectly with this team. His skillset is tailormade with the gunslinging, go get em’ tendencies of Josh Allen.
  8. Denver Broncos- Devin White LB LSU; Drew Lock wouldn’t surprise me here but I think it’s the wrong move. With Joe Flacco in place for the interim, Denver needs to continue to add playmakers, like they did last year with Bradley Chubb. Devin White can slot right into that MIKE spot with Brandon Marshall gone. Automatically will make an impact with his instincts and elite athletic traits.
  9. Cincinnati Bengals- Devin Bush Jr. LB Michigan; Despite Andy Dalton’s continued disappointment he deserves a full season under new Coach Zac Taylor. This team is awful at LB and Devin Bush is just what the doctor ordered. High character guy with good tape and traits to match.
  10. Green Bay Packers- Brian Burns EDGE; You can never have enough pass rush. The Packers did a good job of addressing that need this offseason with the addition of Preston and Zadarius Smith. Adding Brian Burns to that mix gives them an impressive arsenal of pass rushers, something they have sorely lacked throughout the decade.
  11.  Miami Dolphins- Rashan Gary DL Michigan; The Dolphins look to be on track for the bottom of the league. With Gary they meet a glaring need with a high upside player that has all the intangibles to be an elite defender.
  12. Atlanta Falcons- Christian Wilkins DT Clemson; The Falcons are picking in the top 15 due to a year riddled with injuries, this roster however is still one of the best in the league. With Christian Wilkins they get a leader, winner, and one of the more technically sound lineman in the class.
  13. Washington Redskins- Cody Ford OL Oklahoma; In my opinion Washington is another team like Miami and Cincinnati that are building for next year without a franchise QB  in place. With Ford they get an athletic, versatile behemoth of a man who has a nasty streak. Plug and play 10 year starter.
  14. Carolina Panthers- Clelin Ferrel EDGE Clemson; Despite signing Bruce Irvin the Panthers still have a hole at EDGE. Ferrel may not have elite “upside” but is a plug  and play guy who might have the highest floor in the entire class.
  15. New York Giants (From Cleveland)- Montez Sweat EDGE Mississippi St; The Giants got rid of their best and really only pass rusher in Olivier Vernon. Sweat is a bit of a project but is an impressive athlete and already has a nice, but improvable skill set.
  16. Minnesota Vikings- Dalton Risner OL Kansas St; The Vikings had one of the worst lines in the league last year, something they need to improve upon if the Kirk Cousins experiment will have a chance. I may be higher than some on Risner, but I love his versatility and character. He can fill any of the Vikings various weak spots on the line.
  17. Tennessee Titans- Chris Lindstrom G Boston College; The Titans surprisingly don’t have too many needs. And while they just signed Roger Saffold to a thic contract, pairing him with Lindstrom would give them 4 quality lineman. Lindtrom should thrive in this zone run scheme.
  18. Pittsburg Steelers- Byron Murphy CB Washington; Pittsburg has swung and missed on many secondary players over the years and it has hampered them. With Byron Murphy, they get my favorite corner in this class. I think his game is incredibly well rounded and he brings an intensity that you want your corners to posses.
  19.  Seattle Seahawks- Nasir Adderly S Delaware; Adderly has been #draftszn’s fastest riser and it’s easy to see why. He dominated D-II competition with his incredible range and surprising physicality. This should help with the loss of franchise cornerstone Earl Thomas.
  20. Baltimore Ravens- Garret Bradbury C North Carolina St; With Lamar Jackson being the franchise QB going forward their draft philosophy should reflect that. While I thought about going WR or even LB here, a player like Bradbury is too good to pass up. Bradbury is an elite center prospect, the kind that wouldn’t surprise me if he’s a pro bowler out the gate.
  21. Houston Texans- Andre Dillard OT Washington St; Dillard is another fast riser from this offseason. He’s regarded as the best pass blocking tackle in the class with an impressive athletic arsenal. Houston needs to make offensive line a priority if they want to keep Deshuan Watson around for the foreseeable future.
  22. Oakland Raiders- Greedy Williams CB LSU; Greedy Williams is too good to pass up here with Oakland’s second pick. Pairing him with Gareon Conely should give the raiders two corners with sky-high potential for the next 10 years. If Williams can make the best of his undeniable physical gifts, he will be an elite CB in this league.
  23. Philadelphia Eagles- Chauncey Gardner Johnson NB/S Florida; The Eagles’ secondary was hampered by injuries last year and their lack of depth showed. With Gardner Johnson they get a player who can play all over the secondary. Whether thats inside at nickel or at safety, he’s a player with an exciting, versatile skill set.
  24. Indianapolis Colts- Jerry Tillery DL Notre Dame; Tillery is a fast riser in this years class. He’s an impressive athlete at the defensive tackle spot, with length in spades and nice production as a pass rusher. The defensive line is weak in Indy, Tillery should start right away.
  25. Oakland Raiders- TJ Hockenson TE Iowa; Hockenson drops to #27 and is the first TE off the board. I would be pretty shocked if he’s here come 4/28 that being said the raiders add the best pure TE in the draft and instantly improve their passing and run game.
  26. Los Angeles Chargers- Dexter Lawerence NT Clemson; The Chargers have a gaping hole in the middle of their defense. That was all too apparent during Sony Michel 130 yard, 3 TD performance during the divisional round this past January. If the Chargers wanna return to that stage they surely will have to improve upon that. Lawerence is a sublime athlete at 340 lbs and will fit right in-between Bosa and Ingram.
  27. Kansas City Chiefs- DeAndre Baker CB Georgia; Bakers falls to #29 where he fills a desperate need in KC. While he might not have “elite” athleticism, he has virtually no weaknesses’ and has the highest floor of all the CB’s in this class. Plug and Play boi.
  28. Green Bay Packers- Noah Fant TE Iowa; Fant is some people’s #1 TE and it’s not shocking. He’s a fluid athlete who checks all the boxes of a modern TE and while he’s not the blocker Hockenson is, he still is a good blocker. Green Bay can line him up in a multitude of ways and he will spark this offense instantly.
  29. Los Angeles Rams- Jeffrey Simmons DT Mississippi St; I’m with big daddy Klepp here. Simmons would have been a top 10 pick no doubt if it weren’t for his ACL in preparation for the combine. The Rams can afford to effectively redshirt him this year and pair him with Aaron Donald in 2020. Good luck trying to curb that lethal pair.
  30. New England Patriots- Charles Omenihu DL Texas; The Super Bowl Champs have a good amount of needs and 12 picks to fill them. Let’s start with their depleted defensive line. Omenihu is a lengthy, versatile defensive lineman who wowed at the senior bowl. The 6’6 Omenihu has the type of tools the Patriots will covet and can play all over their line.
  31. Arizona Cardinals- Erik McCoy G/C Texas A&M
  32. Indianapolis Colts- Amani Oruwariye CB Penn State
  33. Oakland Raiders- Josh Jacobs RB Alabama
  34. San Fransisco 49rs- Kelvin Harmon WR North Carolina St.
  35. New York Giants- Michael Dieter OT Wisconsin
  36. Jacksonville Jaguars- Irv Smith Jr. TE Alabama
  37. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jachai Polite EDGE Florida
  38. Buffalo Bills- Chase Winovich EDGE Michigan
  39. Denver Bronos- Drew Lock QB Missouri
  40. Cincinnati Bengals- Yodney Cajuste OT West Virginia
  41. Detroit Lions- Deebo Samuel WR South Carolina
  42. Green Bay Packers- N’keal Harry WR Arizona State
  43. Atlanta Falcons- Mack Wilson LB Alabama
  44. Washington Redskins- Hakeem Butler WR Iowa St.
  45. Carolina Panthers- Greg Little OT Ole Miss
  46. Miami Dolphins- Dru Samia OL Oklahoma
  47. Cleveland Browns- Julian Love CB Notre Dame
  48. Minnesota Vikings- Dre’Mont Jones DL Ohio St.
  49. Tennessee Titans- Zach Allen DL Boston College
  50. Pittsburg Steelers- Blake Cashman LB Minnesota
  51. Philadelphia Eagles- David Edwards OT Wisconsin
  52. Houston Texans- Justin Layne CB Michigan St.
  53. Houston Texans- Jace Sternberger TE Texas A&M
  54. New England Patriots- Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma
  55. Philadelphia Eagles- Trayvon Mullen CB Clemson
  56. Dallas Cowboys- Darnell Savage S Maryland
  57. Indianapolis Colts- AJ Brown WR Ole Miss
  58. Los Angeles Chargers- Tytus Howard OT Alabama St.
  59. Kansas City Chiefs- Deionte Thompson S Alabama
  60. New Orleans Saints- Elgton Jenkins C Mississippi St.
  61. Kansas City Chiefs- Christian Miller EDGE Alabama
  62. New England Patriots- JJ Arcegia Whiteside WR Stanford

Tommy’s Mock 1.0: Pre Super Bowl

  1. Arizona Cardinals – Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio State; If Steve Kiem and Co. stay put at pick one, Nick Bosa should be the pick. Bosa has dominated stout competition since arriving in Columbus as a true freshman. On day one he can be slotted opposite Chandler Jones and form one of the most formidable edge duos in the entire league. His only potential red flag is the core injury he’s been rehabing since November, other than that he’s as complete as it gets as a NFL EDGE.
  2. San Fransisco 49rs- Quinnen Williams DT Alabama; Despite drafting defensive lineman in 3 of the last 4 drafts passing up on arguably the best player in the draft is too good to pass up.  Pairing him with DeForrest Buckner would give the 49rs defense two forces up the middle in both the run and the pass.
  3. New York Jets- Jonah Williams OT Alabama; The Jets entire front office ethos should and will be making Sam Darnold’s life as easy as possible. Despite a rough championship game Jonah Williams has been the best at his position throughout the year. His floor is an impact player at either tackle or guard something the Jets unit desperately needs.
  4. Oakland Raiders- Josh Allen EDGE/LB Kentucky; The Raiders have holes all over their team and have 12 picks to address that. Josh Allen had a breakout senior year and has potential to be versatile piece for Paul Guenther rushing the passer and playing in coverage.
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Deionte Thompson FS Alabama; Tampa’s secondary has been torched by its NFC South counterparts year after year. Thompson is a nice start. He brings all the length and range you could want at the position and is a willing tackler in run support. Alabama put him all over the field and I expect a similar expectation in the NFL.  I expect Thompson to make an immediate impact at the next level and will be an x factor for whatever team drafts him.
  6. New York Giants- Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma; After spurning the 2018 QB draft class the Giants redeem themselves in 2019. In Murray the Giants get an unprecedented talent at the position. Despite being 5’10 he still has an absolute canon of an arm and has sublime athleticism that make him the ultimate dual threat. Paired with Saquon and OBJ this has high-octane offense written all over it. With Eli still in place for at least another year the Giants can afford to shoot for the fences.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State; Blake Bortles needs to be done in Jacksonville. Dwayne Haskins lacks modern ideal mobility at the position but has an accurate NFL arm and would immediately be an upgrade at the position. With the offensive personnel already in place, Haskins simply needs to not turn the ball over and give this defense something to play for.
  8. Detroit Lions- Clelin Ferrell EDGE Clemson; While he might not have the same ceiling that Brian Burns has, Ferrell is stout in both the run and pass and has 3 years of legit production(166TK,50.5TFL,27SK) at Clemson.  With Ziggy Ansah likely leaving this offseason, Ferrell can slot into his spot from the get go.
  9. Buffalo Bills- Rashan Gary DL Michigan; With Kyle Williams retirement, Buffalo is  weaker up the middle. While I’d love to give Josh Allen some help upfront or on the outside, Gary’s potential is too good to pass up. The former #1 recruit has the ability to play both on the inside and on the edge. Sean McDonough will love his versatility and can get the most out of Gary’s sky-high potential.
  10. Denver Broncos- Byron Murphy CB Washington; Byron Murphy is the best cornerback in this class and will fit perfectly along with Chris Harris and Bradley Roby in Denver. Murphy has a relentless motor and brings that dawg mentality to every single snap. He’s got lockdown potential written all over him as a suffocating man defender and brings a willing physicality to the run game. Denver should be comfortable putting him on an island across from Chris Harris.
  11. Cincinnati Bengals- Devin White LB LSU; Vontaze Burfict’s career looks to be over leaving an already average group decimated. Devin White has the intangibles to be a 10 year starter in Cincinnati, and fits the athletic mold of the modern linebacker. He swarms to ball carriers and holds his own in pass coverage, completely comfortable in space. The real question is he more Roquan Smith or Jarrad Davis?
  12. Green Bay Packers- Jachai Polite EDGE Florida; Green Bay desperately needs help on the EDGE with Clay Matthews and Nick Perry both aging. Polite fits the bill as a 3-4 OLB, he’s a little undersized (6’2 240) to be rushing the passer full-time but has the explosiveness to be a pass rusher and has upside in coverage due to impressive athleticism.
  13. Miami Dolphins- Brian Burns EDGE Florida State; Miami has multiple needs and should be in the QB market. However, Burns is too good to pass up here in both value and need. Cameron Wake is still playing great football but is aging and Charles Harris has yet to justify his first round selection in 2017. Burns needs to put on weight but has the makeup to be a dominate rusher in the NFL. He already has an impressive arsenal of moves that should only get better with maturation and coaching.
  14. Atlanta Falcons- Ed Oliver DT Houston; Atlanta was decimated by injuries and could go a myriad of ways with this top 15 selection. Oliver’s stock has dropped a bit but I think is a perfect fit in Atlanta. He’s similarly undersized to Falcon DT Grady Jarrret and the two could be a deadly combo in the trenches. Oliver’s floor is pretty high to me and his ceiling is equally high if he can add some pass rush to his freak athleticism.
  15. Washington Redskins- Greedy Williams CB LSU; Despite Alex Smith’s career potentially being up in the air, there’s too much value here to take a run at a QB. Greedy Williams presents everything you’d want in a modern corner, he’s a fluid athlete with size (6’3 180) and length. Despite some lapses in judgement and lack of effort in some tape, he has enough wow plays and upside to be a comfortable pick for Washington.
  16. Carolina Panthers- Cody Ford OT/G Oklahoma; Carolina has been awful upfront for a couple of years now and it’s time they address it. Ford is a behemoth (6’4 340) with surprising athleticism and a level of physicality you’d expect. He’ll be an instant upgrade in both the pass and run game wherever Carolina see’s fit.
  17. Cleveland Browns- Jeffrey Simmons DT Mississippi St; The Browns need someone slotted across Larry Ogunjobi, Simmons is that guy. He’s got a nasty streak that’s right up John Dorsey’s alley and is a pure rush of explosion right up the middle.  He’s possibly the best pass rushing defensive tackle in the entire class. This will improve production across this defensive line as a unit on day one.
  18. Minnesota Vikings- Dalton Risner OL Kansas State; The Vikings can’t progress as a team unless they start to improve their offensive line. Risner might not be the sexiest pick but this guy will make an impact on this team from day 1. He’s probably a right tackle but he really is versatile enough to play wherever he’s needed. He’s good in pass protection and puts guys in the dirt consistently in the run game. A move like this is the first step in fully unlocking this offense.
  19. Tennesse Titans- Christian Wilkins DL Clemson; The Titans have a very good roster but lack an inside presence outside of the perennially underrated Jurrell Casey. Christian Wilkins fits the value/need and is a guy I could see Mike Vrabel loving. He’s a leader with championship pedigree, impressive 4 year production, and he’s incredibly versatile.
  20. Pittsburgh Steelers- De’Andre Baker CB Georgia; The Steelers a have been ailing in the defensive backfield for the last couple years and have swung and mostly missed in the draft. Baker might not have the athletic traits that the two corners picked above him have, but he’s got a high football IQ and not many weaknesses. He’s just what the doctor ordered in Pittsburgh and should be CB1 from day 1.
  21. Seattle Seahawks- David Edwards OT Wisconsin; Edwards might not have the highest upside but eliminates a position of need. Edwards can occupy the RT spot on day 1 opposite Duane Brown and immediately fill a spot that’s been iffy at best for the last couple years. Russell Wilson is the catalyst for this teams success, Seattle deserves to give him much more to work with upfront.
  22. Baltimore Ravens- DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss; Baltimore needs to do everything it can to foster growth for Lamar Jackson. Metcalf has the upside to be an absolute weapon for Jackson and make his job so much easier. Metcalf is the rare breed of receiver with size and explosiveness. He has the tools to be one the elite receivers in the NFL something Baltimore cannot afford to pass up.
  23. Houston Texans- Yodney Cajuste OT West Virginia; Cajuste has got ideal length,strength, and athleticism to be a good starter at tackle in the NFL. Houston undoubtedly has one of the worst offensive line units and like many other teams with young franchise QB’s need to build around that position. Cajuste would be an instant starter in this paltry unit.
  24. Oakland Raiders (from Chicago Bears)- Nasir Adderly FS Delaware; Adderly is a draft darling of many in the draft community and it’s hard not to hop on the bandwagon. He dominated FCS competition and has mouth-watering range and athleticism. He is highly instinctual and high points the ball with ease. He will be a turnover machine on Sundays.
  25. Philadelphia Eagles- Mack Wilson LB Alabama; The Eagles defense needs some help at linebacker. Jordan Hicks can’t shake the injury bug and both Nigel Bradham and Kamu Grugier Hill wont cut it. Wilson fill whatever spot they want him too and is a great athlete who exceeds in coverage. Jim Schwartz will get the  best outta this baller.
  26. Indianapolis Colts- N’keal Harry WR Arizona State; The Colts lack of weapons outside of TY Hilton was evident in the divisional loss at Kansas City. Harry is another big receiver who is great after the catch and will eat in the red zone with Andy Luck throwing him balls.
  27. Oakland Raiders (from Dallas Cowboys)- TJ Hockenson TE Iowa; After adding two playmakers on defense with their first two picks, they can look to adding a great piece on offense. I’d honestly be surprised if Hockenson is still here at this spot, it’s hard not to fall in love with his tape. He has no weaknesses in his game, is a superb athlete who loves to block and has unbelievable hands/ability to adjust to routes and highpoint the ball. With Jared Cook being an upcoming FA, Hockenson is a bona-fide Gruden/Mayock grinder.
  28. Los Angeles Chargers- Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson; The Chargers need to get better up the middle. They were gutted up the middle by the Patriots and the Ravens. Lawerence is a true plug in the middle and will fit perfectly as run stopper next to Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on day 1. Lawrence has nice potential to see some pass rush production come in a front 4 this talented.
  29. Kansas City Chiefs- Devin Bush LB Michigan; Devin Bush will bring some much-needed speed to a Chiefs LB core that lacks just that. He’s great in space and will excel in blitzing schemes for a Chiefs team that needs help at LB.
  30. Green Bay Packers- Chris Lindstrom OG Boston College; Lindstrom will be a plug in play prospect from Green Bay at either G spot. Is a solid all around guard who started for years at Boston College. Versatile enough to move around the o-line in case of injury. He undoubtedly will help get offense back on track with first year coach, and mastermind guru behind the 2018 Tennessee Titans offense, Matt LaFluer.
  31. Los Angeles Rams- Montez Sweat EDGE Mississippi State; We don’t know if Dante Fowler is in the Rams long-term plans, either way there is still a need on the EDGE. Sweat has length in spades and has a nice arsenal of pass rush moves. Easy to see him to developing very nicely in Wade Phillips system.
  32. New England Patriots- Noah Fant TE Iowa; It remains to be seen if this is indeed Rob Gronkowski’s last season. That being said, even if Gronk sticks around, Fant is too juicy of an option to turn down. He can be lined up all over the field and has more than ideal athleticism for the position. He will be another matchup nightmare for this Patriots offense.

Armchair GM: 5 Deadline Deals That Should Be Made

As Tuesday’s trade deadline fast approaches we have already seen some significant deals go down. Bonafide contenders and paper tigers alike are making moves towards shoring up their rosters, whilst sacrificing draft capital. On the other hand, the the bottom dwellers are beginning their offseason early, starting their rebuilding process. Come join me on the GM armchair as we engage some hypotheticals:

  • Jacksonville gets their quarterback of the future

The pre-season division favorite in the AFC South have gotten off to a less than ideal start. Blake Bortles has shown to be the mediocre quarterback he’s always been outside of last years impressive first half of the AFC championship game in New England. Leonard Fourtnette has been hampered by a hamstring injury that has limited him to just two starts this year, prompting the team to go acquire Carlos Hyde from Cleveland. Without a consistent identity on offense their elite defense has struggled to keep them in games and is starting to succumb to in-group tension between the defense and offense. Yet with this team a game behind the first place Texans, this season is still very much alive. It’s time this team gets a quarterback of the future whilst keeping them competitive in the present. The Raiders already have three first round picks, why not make it four? This team is in total disarray, seemingly playing for a future in Las Vegas with a team sculpted by the hundred million dollar man himself.  Finish the year off with Aj McCarron and take Justin Herbert in next years draft, or Will Grier because he’s a Gruden Grinder.

Jaguars: Derek Carr QB

Raiders: 2019 1st round pick (Jacksonville)

  • Pittsburg gets elite talent where they need it the most

The Steelers are beginning to pick up some quality wins after a slow start to the season. Their offense is rounding into their usual form despite not having Le’Veon Bell. Where this team has had trouble this year, and for the past couple years, is in their secondary where Artie Burns sadly has been a bust since being a first round pick in 2016. Why not go get Patrick Peterson from a bad situation in Arizona and put him opposite Joe Haden forming one of the better corner duos in the league. I know that both Peterson and Arizona leadership have stated they both wish for him to remain a Cardinal long term, but the Steelers have the requisite capital to give them a deal too good to pass up. A plethora of picks could help Arizona re-invest into their main priority, Josh “Westwood for the Weekend” Rosen.

Steelers: Patrick Peterson CB

Cardinals: 2019 1st round pick (Pittsburg), 2020 3rd round pick (Pittsburg) 

  • Philadelphia gives Carson Wentz another weapon 

The Super Bowl hangover is real in Philadelphia. While their defense remains one of the leagues best, their offense has struggled to be as prolific as it was a year ago. Alshon Jeffrey and Zach Ertz have terrific as Wentz’s main options, while Nelson Agholor has been a good second choice. Let’s bring another talented wide receiver in from the 2015 draft, Devante Parker. Parker has shown flashes of what made him a first round pick, but has been hampered by injuries and inconsistent quarterback play in Miami. The Dolphins have cooled down after their impressive start and settling into that role of a mediocre NFL team. Albert Wilson has emerged as their clear second option with Kenny Stills and the speedy Jakeem Grant, so cutting ties with Parker can be afforded. The Eagles were outbid by the Cowboys for Amari Cooper, unwilling to part with a first round pick. Here I have them making another high risk/high reward move, with significantly less risk (I’m looking at you, Jerry Jones).

Eagles: DeVante Parker WR

Dolphins: 2019 4th round pick (Philadelphia)

  • Packers make their move to stay competitive in the NFC

There is no way around it, this Packers team is not very good. Despite having the best player in the league for the better part of the past decade, they continue to rely on Aaron Rodgers to single handedly drag this team to the promise land. This defense plain and simple is one of the worst units in the league. It starts with their pass rush, they’ve relied on Clay Matthews to be in the elite form of his youth despite regression every year. How bout adding a veteran like Cameron Wake? Wake is in the twilight of his impressive career and I just discussed how this Dolphins team is trending downwards. Miami has young guns on their d-line, this move would give guys like Charles Harris more of a sample size to justify his first round selection back in 2017.

Packers: Cameron Wake DE

Dolphins: 2019 fifth round pick (Green Bay) 

  • Chiefs help out their much maligned defense

Kansas City have set the league on fire seven weeks in, mostly in part to their seemingly unstoppable offense. Their defense on the other hand has been bad. If this team wants to make it out of the AFC and compete for a Super Bowl, that’ll have to change. Unlike the Chiefs, the New York Giants are in full rebuild mode. Snacks Harrison just got shipped to Detroit for a fifth round pick, now it’s time to part with another defensive stud from their 2016 offseason; Janoris Jenkins. I was tempted to go all in for Landon Collins but seeing as him and Eric Berry are similar players, I think Jenkins is the better fit as a lock down corner opposite of Kendall Fuller. The Giants continue their rebuild, ridding themselves once again of one of their pricier contracts, as Dave Gettleman will continue to mold this roster how sees fit.

Chiefs: Janoris Jenkins CB

Giants: 2019 4th Round Pick
