IF we hadn’t beaten Washington


Recommended Posts

I know the discussion of beating Washington has been beaten to death.  However, now that the draft has taken place, who do y’all think we would have taken in that scenario?  Guessing it would have been between Sewell Pitts and Horn, with the likeliest choice being Sewell.    I’m good with how it turned out btw

Where do you think they had Wilson on their BPA board?  I assume they would have Trevor #1.

Hard to say. I don't think they had any intention of drafting a QB in this class unless it was Lawrence as more stuff comes out.

 If we had not beaten Washington, we would have been able to trade up for Wilson.  I read we liked Lawrence and Wilson.  NY was not 100% sold on the idea of abandoning Darnold, and they would have taken a first rounder in 2021, 2022 and maybe a second in 2022 (what Darnold cost us) to move up.

But had we made the Darnold trade, I have to think we would have traded back---and still tried to acquire a #1 CB.  Here is why--there (in my opinion) were only 2 #1, lock down/zone/press etc. corners.  I said this before the draft in mid April---as much as I love Pitts and Sewell, we HAD to have a #1 CB to put on the WRs in this division.  And our CBs were KILLING us last year.  71% completion rate against us outside the numbers....who sucks that bad?

So trading back would have been a given. 
If not an option, we take Sewell.  elite LT > TE/WR/Star

Based on this draft, we would have traded back with SF and then traded up to Detroit or Philly (who would have been 8 and 7) just like Miami did. We would have had an extra 3rd already and  an extra 1st in 2023 (assuming we gave up 2022 1st like Miami).

Basically had Horn (or Sewell) at 7 or 8 and could have done everything else exactly the same except had one more player taken with SF’s 3rd. Maybe even traded SF’s 3rd for a 2nd next year and been completely whole in 2022.

So, here’s what we could have had if we lost to Washington:

Exact same 2021 draft

Darnold for only 2021 6th (since we’d have recouped 2022 2nd and 4th)

Two first round picks in 2023

Basically, we would have gained Darnold  for almost nothing and a 2023 1st with a loss to Washington. That would have been nice.

Why do you guys like to live in the past so much?

Some people like exercise their brains and analyze what could have happened. Sometimes it helps to build intelligence for use in future scenarios.

Why do you cheer for a team that you do not participate in or have kids playing on? Do you root only for Thor in the Avengers movies? Lots of people like different things, it happens.

It pretty much would have still come down to Sewell and Horn.

I agree, especially if SF came knocking at our door with 3 firsts and a 3rd.

Actually, yes they were or rather yes Joe Douglas was.

The writing was on the Wall during that season from hell. 

Yes, Adam Gase was history but Joe Douglas(Jets GM) wanted to draft HIS OWN GUY (as Sam was drafted by the previous GM) so he was gonzo no matter what.

but there were repots we talked to the Dolphins some about trading to 3.  If you are going to 3 it is for a QB.
