What are we doing in the draft?

If I had to take a random shot in the dark here 

1. Lawrence 
2. Wilson 
3. M.Jones 
4. Pitts 
5. Chase 
6. Trade down or ALA WR 
7. Slater 
8. Fields

Picking at 8, there is a high probability that we will get to choose from some combination of Fields, Lance, Sewell/Slater, Parsons, Surtain.  Thank the football gods that there is a run on QB's at the top of the draft this year, pushing potential pro bowl caliber talent down to 8.  For all 'the sky is falling' Chicken Littles out there, endlessly and boringly bemoaning our meaningless win over WFT, suck it!

Nothing but love,

Yep.  Assuming we stay put at 8, we are guaranteed a high impact, stud player at a position of need.  Whether its QB, T, CB, TE or MLB - we are going to get a stud.  And all the QBs going in the top 5 very well could end up being a blessing in disguise.  There are many other ways of getting a good QB besides drafting him in the top 5 of the draft.

Even tho we are good at receiver, i still REALLY like Chase. And LSU receivers have been just as legit as Ohio State DBs lately. 

You cant go wrong on the pick.

The QB lust is getting sickening. Think about it, of the "top 5" QBs in this draft, how many will actually live up to your projections or hype? How many normally do? We see QBs get hyped up every year and most of them fail. Why would you sweat the 3rd or 4th best QB at 8 when you can get the best OT or weapon there? If 5 QBs are taken before you, trading back from 8 would be absurd unless you're only moving down a few spots to pick up more picks and still get elite talent for your squad. I wish the best for these QBs, but history has shown us that maybe 2 of the 5 will succeed. Let's hope the Panthers will get one of them for your sakes. 

Desperation. It's what happens when you pay a backup quarterback starter money the same year you move on from a former franchise player and end up with egg on your face.

So you think Burrow is going to get what he wants?  I imagine that was a bit tough to decide---

If the Niners take Jones and Atlanta takes Pitts (I think that is what both teams do), then the Bengals will take Chase or an OT.  Miami and Detroit will get trade up offers.

Do we love Lance or Fields enough to move up?  I do not think so and hope we do not.

I feel you, but I would not want ATL to grab him. Can you imagine what their weapons would look like then? Scary for a few years to come. Good luck with that.

We have Chinn.  Not as worried as I might otherwise be about Pitts.

Someone below us, lol. I haven't researched it that would just be my preference. If 5 qbs go by 7 Someone will trade up for pitts surtain or an ot. That's the only way fields or Lance won't be there.

WFT or Broncos would be the two biggest contenders to make a move like that IMO.

Dang, Dan Graziano just said he thinks it's Trey Lance to the niners and so did Ben Albright. Ben said the media was building it up, but he is hearing Lance. Hope they are wrong.

    • In the last 60 days how many total hours do you figure you've spent on this website promoting Sam's cause?
    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment.
