I think the draft plays out like this...

Can we just fast forward and have the draft tomorrow? Two more weeks is painful. I have 0 clue who we will take and who will be there. Picks 1/2 seem to be set but 3-7 is a complete toss up and one guy (Jones) has a huge impact if he’s taken.

I’m 99% sure Jones is the 9ers guy and have been since they traded up.

I’m also almost 99% sure my picks 1-5 are damned close to how it happens, the only doubt being New England taking Fields or Lance.

Aint no hype. Rhule likes Pitts. Always has.

Liking and drafting are different things. I’m also curious about how much say Rhule will even have. It is his job to coach, not assemble the team.

Word is Rhule also liked guys like Whitehead but that didn’t work out so well.

Maybe his second pro day made them rethink that. It is still possible that they traded up to 3 knowing that they would have their pick between Jones, Fields and Lance. They clearly think they are a QB away so they just didn’t want to risk not being at 3 and deciding their own fate. Maybe it’s because Jones going 3 could be great for us that I don’t believe it.

Remember when we were at pick 3 or 4 on Tankathon with the inside track to 3? Ah, the good old days.

Ask yourself how much we used any TE last year. 
 

Now remind yourself we just signed a capable TE this offseason.

Now picture the amount of holes we still have at other positions that we actually value.

The Pitts/Panthers reports are a hell of a lot of hype/smoke.

That said. I wouldn’t be upset with that pick. I just think it is less likely that he’s there or that we’ll pick him over other positions if he is.

I almost had him going to Miami. That could still happen and we’re not even debating this.

Ughhh… we didn’t use a TE last year because ours were awful.

How do you know what we value?

"Ask yourself" how much we used Olsen when he was healthy? All the f'ing time. So we do value the TE position. We just do not value Ian Thomas, because he blows.

1 Jags - Lawrence 

2 Jets - Wilson

3 Niners - Jones

4 Falcons - trade with Pats - Fields

5 Bengals - Chase

6 Dolphins - DeVonta Smith

7 Lions - Sewell

8 Panthers - trade down

 

Lance, Slater, and Pitts would all be options if we stayed put, but there is more value in trading down at this point.

I don't agree, but I'm always interested in your take.

I don't think we will trade down. We need a foundational member of the team we are building. We need to make a pick of the litter pick. I still think we take a swing at QB if one falls, if not it's LT or Pitts. 

Slater --> Sewell --> Pitts barring one of the top four QBs in your list don't fall.

Different coaching staff. That said, they did sign a guy to be that TE weapon, but there is no telling how much they will use him. If Pitts is the pick, I can see them using him all the time, especially if he can block.

Just because we didn't use Thomas doesn't mean we won't use a TE.  We had 1 year so far with this spread offense.

And Pitts isn't quite a TE.  He can line up slot and at X

We didn't have one worth using. Brady didn't shy away from using one at LSU.
