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.

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
