According to McShay, We Should Move Up for WR

94 posts in this topic

Todd McShay was just on ESPN saying we should package a couple later picks and move up in front of the Eagles and Chiefs to select the third or fourth best receiver meaning Odell Beckham or Brandin Cooks. Mentioned that there's a good chance 6-7 WRs are off the board before we pick and that there could be a run on tackles too.

That being said, I am still weary of giving up picks most likely because of the Hurney era and I am not sure that it's Gettleman's style.

Theoretically, if Gettleman and the front office are 100% confident that Beckham Jr or Cooks is "our guy" and fits, would you support moving up and giving up something like a 3rd and 5th rounder to go from the late to early twenties? FWIW, we have met with both Cooks and Beckham Jr.

I wouldn't its tons of WR in this draft. The only WR i would move up for is Sammy an Mike Evan an thats not going to happen.

I'd prefer to trade back, but at this point I'm putting full faith in the staff.  If they feel it's the right move then I'm all for it.  I trust Gettleman knows what he's doing if that's the decision he makes.  I don't anticipate it actually happening though.

If there's an opportunity to move up a couple of spots to grab the right guy that's slipping, then by all means go for it.  The most I think we'd go for is to jump up to #26 to leapfrog the Saints since the Saints also have a definite need at WR.  I'm just not sure if that's feasible though since the Browns have #26 and they very well could be targeting a QB with that pick.

No. Idiotic. Don't trade more picks to move up for anybody. You never know how players are going to be in the NFL so you don't give up a lot for them. Sit at 28 and take the best player available. Good thing Gettleman is smarter than that idiot mcshay

We need picks. I don't think we are in a position to mortgage the future.

I'm saying how would you feel about moving up 7-8 slots. Giving up a couple mid-late round picks isn't going to jeopardize our future if we get our guy and he turns out as expected. Just trying to weigh all options and get some discussion going.

If Cleveland IS targeting a QB, then they may not mind moving back two spots for some compensation since the Saints won't be drafting their targeted QB.

True.  Didn't think about that. 

 

I just think if they're targeting a QB and he's there at #26, they'll take him.  I doubt they'd risk trading down and running the risk of a team jumping up and leapfrogging them by swinging a deal with N.O.

Gettleman is not Marty Hurney, he will not fug up our draft.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
