Instead of discussing the cost and cap of all FA signings I'll just give my list.
In House resigns:
Chris Cook (Don't get upset so quickly- I feel like he plays well at times, such as against Calvin Johnson, and other times his brain isn't in the game. I wouldn't throw big money at him because he is so injury prone but I would like to see how a new DB coach can work with him.)
Joe Webb... great athlete, great special teams guy
Toby Gerhart ( You'll see why in a moment)
Out of House signings:
Alterraun Verner CB
Linval Joseph, DT
Trade Adrian Peterson... Please refrain from yelling at the screen. I want to see AP get a ring and I don't think we will have a team assembled for another 2-3 years in order to get to the Superbowl. I would trade him to Dallas for their first round pick this year (17) and their third round pick this year as well. I feel like we will only be losing value if we keep AP around and we can hopefully maximize it this year.
Restructure pay for Chad Greenway
Prior to our pick I believe Clowney, Bridgewater, Manziel, Bortles, Barr, Robinson and Mack will be taken.
I don't believe Carr is a value pick at 8.
Round 1 TRADE: Back with the someone who desperately wants to pick up Watkins. For this mock let's say it is Detroit. So we get pick 10 and their fourth rounder.
Round 1 Pick 10 (From DET) : C.J Mosley ILB Alabama
Round 1 Pick 17 (From DAL): Calvin Pryor FS Louisville
Round 2 Pick 8: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB Eastern Illinois : Wow this guy can ball. He has such a quick release and his decision making skills seem to be great. I have a bit of a problem with his arm strength. I think he can take a year to learn under Cassel next year and become a very good quarterback for many years to come.
Late Round 2 Pick (25-32): Trade 3rd rounder from DAL and the 4th from DET for
Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB Nebraska: We need a big physical CB to pair up with Xavier Rhodes. There is never harm in having depth at the CB position and this would give us 3/4 good CB's.
Round 3 Pick 8: Billy Turner, OT NDSU (North Dakota) This is my home boy pick. I really liked watching the play he gave the Bison for the last couple years here. I think we can transition him into a guard and we can have a stacked OL that can move the pile for our RB. If not Gabe Jackson OG.
Round 3 Pick 32 (From Seattle): De’Anthony Thomas, RB Oregon : This guy is quick like lightening quick. I have seen a lot of people saying he will be a later round draft pick for his size but I don’t care. We need this guy on offense as our scat back. He will only make our offense that much more dynamic.
Round 4 Pick 8: Daniel McCullers DT
This clearly is not going to happen but I'd like it if it did! Too many trades to make it realistic. What do you guys think about this scenario?
