What are we doing in the draft?

I do wonder if they decided to trade for SD because they don't think any of the qb prospects they want will be there at 8.  But if a surprise happens, and one of them is available, they might still pull the trigger.  

IMO, qb is such a critical position, that it wouldn't bother me if we went into the season with two potential starters.  

I have a feeling he is our backup plan/used to prevent teams from jumping us. We pulled the trigger once the Falcons announced their pick was for sale. Knowing we can’t afford to throw away the picks it would take to trade up to 5 (Falcons won’t trade with us) we went ahead and secured plan B (really plan z at this point). If our guy happens to fall I don’t think Sammy D stops us from grabbing him...

Congrats, 1 game (that’s what everyone seems to carry Slater is this single game).  He isn’t even OT 2 for me like several other people.  This has the Andre Dillard feel to me when everyone was screaming at me blue in the face that I was wrong about Dillard, look at his feet, look at ___, etc etc.

The more tape I watch on Slater, the more I am convinced he can and will be a dominant LT. Either way, you are getting a force of an offensive lineman.

Yeah I personally don’t want Slater. Question if LT is even his best spot in the pros.

Parsons is not going in the top 10.

My long shot bet is either we take him(Cincinnati takes Sewell) or Washington trades up to 7 to take him from us.

Watch it happen!

You’re talking about Parsons or Sewell?

Due to on the field or off? 
 

I don’t see him falling past a Washington trade up. 

Probably positional value. Unless it's a generational talent in a weak draft, an off ball LB just doesn't warrant a top 10 pick in today's NFL.

This.

he had 1 fantastic game.  A few other good games.  Rest never stood out.

he like Dillard has the quick feet the underwear Olympic times, and shows the quickness on film.  Down side he is smaller,  not as dominant overall as the other Sewell or even Darrisaw.

 

and back to the size thing.  I don’t lean on the analytics, size, etc As heavily as some but factor it in.  But Slater IS in the bottom 20% measurement wise of OTs coming out in the last several years.

He’s most likely going to be the next Luke where ever he goes so ya he’s going to be a generational talent, unless off the field stuff gets him, I know there are rumors. Otherwise I agree.

If the over/under is Luke, I'm all in on under. It's hilarious to try to enshrine kids in the HOF before they ever don an NFL jersey.
