Yep, you will see me slowly fade away on the Huddle after the draft and as the season gets closer. I literally get more excited about the roster build than I do about the season itself. Once the season is here, It's mostly just a poo session after a loss or everyone high-fiving after a win, which I have no real interest being part of.
About the 3T--you are right--I expect a reluctant cut after the draft, etc. We cannot meet all of these needs in one draft---I think we are hoping to address 3 of them, which was exposed a bit (in theory) during the Darnold trade.
I think there is something to analyzing the layout of the draft, looking at what we have done in free agency, and using some common sense to figure out the strategy. I think the first round weapons are making Fitterer salivate--Pitts, Waddle, Smith, and Chase. I think we get one of them. I want a T, but they probably see what a third weapon does for the passing game--matchups, etc. My guess is that they see OT being very deep, so they will go weapon/OL in rounds one and two.
So we have signed Melvin and Bouye--experienced, one-year plugs at CB and we have Jackson. It sure looks as though we are preparing for life without a drafted QB. Meanwhile, we can expect YGM to step up, Reddick, Burns, and maybe Fox to pressure the QB. That is what we hope to do on defense.
It is my opinion that we intend to find an impact weapon in round 1, an OT in round 2, and maybe an IOL or QB in round 3. CB? maybe, but a 3rd round CB is a project. QB? If Mond or Mills or Trask is sitting there, I think we have to take him.
