Still waiting ...

I could see a trade for Trey Lance after the draft. I’d like to see a trade for Jerry Jeudy if possible. Maybe Cook and a future pick for Jeudy?

I would LOVE to see them swing a deal for Linebacker Devon White but it probably is too pricey. Would Tampa do Hunter for White?

Does a trade for Budda Baker make sense?

Since yore last open thread ...

Late round QB for the Vikings?

The idea in this silly mock is that the Texans do NOT take a QB at 2. I doubt it but what if?

Once you trade up you probably do not trade down but the Colts really wanted Levis and were afraid the Vikings would snag him.

Of course, and as always, many of these players wont be available where I have them here because the internerd big boards said so right?

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • Leave the gender hatred at the door
  • Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
  • Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
  • No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
  • If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
  • While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm
