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

How does 2nd rounder 1 year out = 1st round pick?  I get the point that if we are the worst team, it will be the 33rd overall pick.  But, there is a time value associated with these picks you know.

Agreed, I really dislike the argument of “it’s basically a first round pick” and then calling a second a first, just because it’s high in the second round. I get draft value, a lot of the prospects around there are similar, but it’s still a second rounder.  That’s why they have different rounds and not just one massive chucklefug round of drafting.  

 

Also a pet peeve, when someone says SF gave up 3 firsts to move up to number 3 overall.  No, they gave up 2 firsts.  They still have a first round pick this year and did not lose 3 total firsts.  That bugs the hell out of me when people talk about trading.  Always used to make a trade sound worse than it is.  Nobody asked but I wanted to vent 🤷🏻‍♂️

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.

 

lol... those dont add up to a 1st round pick man.... those dont even add up for a current 2nd round pick.

If Rivera wasn't so bad at his job, we would've won at least 2 Super Bowls with Cam and Luke. Cam might also still be able to be healthy enough to still be our QB.

I didn't want Darnold, but... let's just. let. this. thing. play. out.

Good or bad move, time will tell.

You realize that if he throws a bad pass in his very first series with us in the preseason, people will be declaring that he's a bust and they knew it and they don't need to see anymore, right?

But they literally did give up three first round picks. Now granted they got a first round pick back, but how else would you possibly word it?

“They gave up two first round picks”

 

Edit:to me, “giving up” means total loss. I guess that’s where the difference is

Teddy was mediocre, but a competent game manager with good skill players.  Darnold has bee a complete dumpster fire, and you don't win more than 4 games with him unless he improves tremendously.

 

I think if Darnold improves quite a bit he could get us to 6 wins...possible.

    • 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. 
    • Ok I'll go do one right now.
    • 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.
