    The Smart One got a reaction from Herr Doktor in My first round pick that could be the impact player we need   
    I feel like the only reason people don’t want to pick Pitts is the fact he’s a TE. But if you put aside the position bias you have to admit he’s an elite talent who would start for us and make an impact day 1 and for years to come.  That’s what you want from a top pick.

    The Smart One got a reaction from AUTiger7222 in Do you think that Russell Gage would make a solid number 2 receiver when and if Calvin Ridley takes over WR1?   
    I think Gage is a guy that could be a functional number 2 if the situation arose but we should never enter a season planning for him to be the number 2

    I’ve seen good reports and comps for CB Trill Williams.

    Well that’s actually the thing. Defense is where the value is in the draft. In all but 1 of my mocks either Moehrig Holland or both is still there at pick 68. Moses for LB is usually still on the board then too. There’s almost always a NT available at 108 too. Lots of value on defense.

    Oh no trolling here. My name was based on the idea of rational thought and discussion during a time where there was a lot of “James Stone is the best because I said so” type discussion on the board. But I can see where the name could rub people the wrong way. Honestly though I’m more of a lurker than a poster.

    Me too.  It makes you salivate.  Great way to build a roster & increases the odds of hitting gems.  It's fun using the Sims to experiment on selections you wouldn't ordinarily be a fan of just to see the results. 
    Your pick always affects the draft from the top down, so if you grab a guy that isn't expected at  or at 34, it causes unexpected runs on positions below you thus freeing up quality guys available when your picks comes back around.

    In my mocks I do a lot of trade back trade ups where I trade a high pick and a low pick for multiple mid round picks. 12 picks and done within the top 150 builds a strong roster in this draft.

    IKR. To be fair though there were some prospects I would have liked that I missed out on. I was surprised I was able to get those last 3 picks though. I don’t remember Trask ever lasting that long.

    See I’m not so sure it is. If Wilson is there at 4 someone should be willing to pay a lot to move up. Philly would definitely become an interesting trade partner at that point.

    Been doing a lot of mock drafts lately and the more I look at things the more I realize if we stay at 4 I think there are only 2 players we can really consider taking in that spot. 
    Option 1 is Sewell. He’s the best OL in the draft and would allow us to move on from Matthews and his large cap hit in the near future. For this year Sewell would probably play LG but he’d be a massive upgrade to the line. 
    Option 2 is Pitts. The only reason I can think of for not drafting Pitts here is that he’s a TE but honestly that just doesn’t sound like a really good reason. The dude is a mismatch on anyone and would make our offense unstoppable. Picture the Falcons coming out in a 2 WR 2 TE set with Julio Ridley Pitts and Hurst out there with someone like Javonte Williams in the backfield. As a defense what are you supposed to do? 
    I’d be good either way but I’m really thinking Pitts should be the pick. Lots of good OL around the draft. Very few TEs much less good ones.

    I think Pitts makes the whole offense better both in the running and passing game. If we have 2 WR 2 TE 1 RB on the field nobody would ever be able to defend us. Guard against the run we pass. Guard against the pass we run. The defense would always be in the wrong personnel group.

    That’s one of the things about Sewell. He may or may not be there. Tends to be about a 50/50 proposition. 2 QBs and Chase tend to have to go top 3.

    I disagree. You're selling Pitts a little short and I did the same initially. He's dam good. I know when people say "Oh he's the best TE prospect in years" but he really is. He's the best mix of athletic ability and production in a long time. Guys like OJ Howard didn't have the production and was pure projection. Hockensen and Fant weren't close on the combination of athleticism and production. Yes, Kelce and Waller weren't top picks, but that's the upside for Pitts. What that would bring to this offense with Julio and Ridley is more than just a "tight end". He requires double teams. But you can't double him given who's around him. When TEs have been taken this high, it's never been on a team with two top 15 WRs already in place. It changes the entire complexion of the offense. You can't put eight in the box, which amplifies the running lanes from a scheme that is already stressful to defend. 
    Also, there is a valid argument that Pitts is a better TE than the next guy at TE compared to Surtain/Farley and Sewell. Even Parsons, who is no longer a lock top LB when talking about JOK. There is a very high likelihood the #4 pick will be an offensive player. Sewell, Chase, and Pitts are the only non-QBs worth it there.
