What are we doing in the draft?

So all this Tepper brass balls "an average QB" will get you nowhere, Teddy sucks, we want D. Watson or bust coming from the Panthers..... and we end up with Sam Darnold? Also, I hope you know if Darnold has a decent year, Joe Brady will be bye bye. Do you know what the future plan is?

The only guy I care about is the HC. 

Much like Canes fans wringing their hands about Rob Likens getting a HC job. If he does well enough to earn a HC job then that means he's done a good job as your OC. I don't see a problem with that.

That is the exact feeling I got out of the interview today. Seems like we are so desperate. If I had to bet, they are getting a lot of pressure from Tepper, but Idk if this is really the future or this year. Idk, nothing makes sense. Didn't even get the feeling we are confident in Darnold from Scotts interview.

Plan is simple. Keep trying until you succeed. 

Teddy - Played well for Saints. Short contract. 

Darnold - Young. Lot's of natural talent. Low risk, high reward. 

Still a chance we draft Fields in the draft if he is there. 

If Darnold sucks ass next year we will be in a prime spot to pick up a QB in 2022.

The plan was all in on Watson, we were all but done in getting him, and the thing happened. So now you played your hand and have no way out of it.

So, I think that our best possible scenario is Sewell or Chase or Pitts. Sewell would be our anchor for the next decade plus. Chase/Pitts would give us the best receiving core in the NFL. Chase in particular is fuging insane. Next Randy Moss.

Then next year we get that Texas Tech QB and boom. Chiefs 2.0

You're where I was a couple of years ago when the Chiefs picked Mahomes.

I died a little inside when we passed over him.

The only difference is we don't hate the Chiefs and they don't kick our a$$ year in and year out--many times twice a season.

Naw, pass catchers isn't our problem. 

We will draft sewell or slater if we stay at 8

I'd take in this order in the first: sewell, pitts, slater, surtain. 2nd round: either asante samuel or deon grant, third round ben cleveland or Quinn meinerz, 4th round safety either nasirildeen or shawn wade, fifth round cam cam Sample sixth round shi Smith or Jalen darden

So got to think we will still take Lance or Fields if they fall correct? I did notice Fitt said we could trade up or back in the draft which was the opposite of what he said the first time.

Yep. Seems like we panicked before there was a need to panic. You're still holding the #8 overall pick and I don't think Darnold was getting moved anywhere else anytime soon. Not for what we gave up anyway.

Tannehill had two 4000+ yard seasons in Miami and another just shy of 4000. Darnold barely cracked 3000 once. He threw for 2200 yards, 9 TDs and 11 INTs last year. He wasn't just the worst starting QB in the NFL, he was the worst by miles. Him working out here would be an all-time career rebound.

Those 4000 yard years were years 3-4 for Tannehill. How can we compare that when Darnold hasn’t even played year 4? What about Tannehill having less than 3000 and less than 2000 in years 5 and 6 in Miami? You are moving the goal posts a bit here. All I said was that in years 1-2 the two were very similar and in year 3, Darnold had worse talent at every spot so while he sucked, he had no chance.

Go look at years 1 and 2 and tell me that they don’t look very similar. Go look at their year 3 offensive casts and tell me Tannehill didn’t have way better weapons.

Also, Gase wasn’t Tannehill’s coach until 2016 through 2018 when Tannehill was 28 to 30 and Tannehill had less yards per games during those 3 years than Darnold did in years 1 and 2.

I’m willing to give Darnold the benefit of the doubt in year 3, because his offensive weapons were trash.
