If Darnold plays poorly next year, we traded what will be a 1st round pick for him.

Name an available QB who is guaranteed to have a strong 2021?  (there is not one, but I will let you throw out a name anyway)

How much would he cost?

How much would we lose if he busts?

What are you going to say if he becomes successful in Carolina?

 

 

Mariota is probably 5 times as good as Darnold and could have been gotten for a 6th round pick.

But we should have drafted a QB to be honest instead of being content with mediocrity.

Or preserved our draft capital for 2022 draft class.

The history of draft busts suddenly turning around their career because they went to a better team is pretty sparse.

People want to cite Tannehill, but he was actually pretty good in Miami if you look at his statistics.

Good QBs find a way to shine even in terrible circumstances;  we should know that with Cam Newton.

For all of the nimrods bemoaning the 'loss of a valuable pick'...NEWSFLASH:

THE PEOPLE EVALUATING PLAYERS AND MAKING OUR DRAFT PICKS ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO CHOSE TO USE A 2ND ROUNDER ON SAM DARNOLD.

IF YOU THINK THEY'RE IDIOTS AND GAVE AWAY A HIGH PICK, WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY'D DO IF WE'D JUST KEPT THE PICK?????? 

Give them a little credit or at least the benefit of the doubt through training camp. Goddamn.

Dude, you're an anonymous poster on a message board. No one's paying you to evaluate players. Your opinion on whether Mariota is better than Darnold means fug all to anyone. What are you guys smoking that makes you think your opinions carry any kind of weight?

So now a second rounder is a first rounder.  lol

We should trade our second rounder this year for a second rounder next year which is actually a first rounder.

Look up the draft value chart for

 

33rd pick + 4th round pick + 6th round pick

 

So yes, yes it is, if Darnold is terrible again.

If it’s that bad we will just draft Howell and be good.

 

Or perhaps we'll be the 3rd worst team, and need that high 2nd round pick as draft capital to move into the top 2.

A late first round pick, but a 1st rounder nonetheless.  

If Darnold is anything like he has been the past few years for the Jets, we'll be a bottom 7 team picking at the top of the 2nd round.

If you add up the other picks we gave up with a high 2nd rounder, it has the same 'draft value' as a late 1st round pick.

So Darnold may end up costing us a late 1st rounder, and a tremendous cap hit in his 5th year.  That is quite the gamble for a quarterback who has played at his level, regardless of his coaching.

Nah it’s takes first rounders to move up for QBs especially the number one pick. If that’s the case we can just take Rattler or JT Daniels.

33th pick? 

So we would have the number 1 pick aswell. And the first in every round.

What an awesome trade. 5d chess on a quantum computer type of move.
