  1. Verge doesn’t really make a lot of predictions. Verge mostly provides likelihoods and nuggets of what they’ve been hearing.
  2. I never said LT or offensive line wasn't important. Hell, I've said if we do draft Sewell and Leatherwood is there in the 2nd round I think we should draft both (I love his versatility and he would be a monster guard). I just don't think you pass on Pitts with the options available to us if he's there.
  3. We couldn’t protect Bridgewater and we were in almost every game at the end. A first round LT isn’t our only solution to solve the LT problem and it’s not the only opportunity. Get the unstoppable TE now. If Sam sucks next year because our multiple second round LTs suck, so be it. It’s Sam Darnold. Besides, it’s easier for Pitts to have an immediate impact than it is for a rookie LT. Besides, Darnold moves in the pocket better than Teddy. I may not feel this way if there weren’t more LT talent to be had in the second round, but because these moons are aligning we need to ride this wa
  4. A second rounder or buy one next year. A Pitts mismatch type player at 8 only comes along once every CMC. To have both those players changes an organization. We have cap room for next year, a second round pick this year, and a first next year to address the LT. That’s three opportunities to get a longterm solution to LT in the next year. This is our only chance to get a TE with Hall of Fame ability.
  5. Pitts and Leatherwood. Get me both, and I don’t care who else you draft.
  6. I really like Leatherwood, not at 8, but if he’s there in the 2nd round, man that would be something. Even if we picked Sewell at 8, Leatherwood would be an amazing pick in the 2nd.
  7. Quicker and easier to build O line with vets in free agency than to rely on rookies in the draft. They’ll be more cuts after the draft, plus if you want a OT from the draft then wait until the second round, they’ll be someone decent left (leatherwood).
  8. I think not selecting Pitts would be a monumental mistake. The more I look, the more I’m convinced he’ll be incredible in our offense. He’s going to be so open in our offense. McCaffrey and he pulling down safeties so DJ Moore and Anderson can just run down the field will be unstoppable. Oh and then we’re in the end zone with Dan Arnold and Pitts. Lol to the defenses.
  9. Having TE like Pitts completely changes the offense. We won’t get the opportunity to have one of the league’s best mismatches for years if we don’t grab him if he’s available. A great LT is of course a big win. But we can address LT easier in subsequent FA and the draft easier than getting a TE of Pitt’s quality in years to come.
  10. I kinda think he signed for 2.5 million to show how incompetent the Bears were for signing Dalton for 10 million. Trubisky gets a reset year and hits the market next year and possibly goes with their offensive coordinator who’s rumored to be a top coaching candidate next year.
  11. Yeah, but the cap gets larger for everyone else, as well. So while we’ll have a lot more cap space, so will other teams. It’s not like the growing cap puts us in a clear advantage over half of the league.
  12. He was pretty bad with throws to his right at his pro day. First round picks can’t have that problem; especially when he’s had an entire year to learn how to throw not left.
  13. In the pros he’s really excelled in late game drives. He turns on another gear and starts playing with more confidence. He has a little Delhomme in him in that regard. I think he would do well here. Our team has seen what a good QB who can’t perform at the end of games gets you ... nothing.
