CMarinoNFL Posted April 19, 2021 Share Posted April 19, 2021 (edited) Fields is going 3 imho. A high ranking coach from NDSU told me that "the GM and HC certainly seemed like they liked him (Lance)" at his pro. Definitely some interesting dots being connected. I think the draft falls: Jags: Lawrence Jets: Wilson 49ers: Fields Falcons: Lance Bengals: Chase Falcons are in too good of a position to pass up on a QB. Bad bet to pass on one and say you'll get one later. Never the right move. Adding Pitts doesnt move the needle for us. Darren Waller was a 6th rounder. Kelce was a third. Kittle a fifth. Gronk, a second. Waller didn't move the needle for the Raiders despite being elite in his own right. Neither did Kittle. 6-10 with a lackadaisical QB but a stud weapon. Regression is regression and having a regressive QB defeats the purpose of adding weapons. Weapons can only get you so far if you cant support THEM. Lance makes sense for us from a pro-ready/offensive similarity standpoint where his playcaller has been on NFL rosters before. Team clearly likes him and his fit in Arthur's scheme. The truth is simple: The Falcons will have a ton of talent with Pitts on roster and will have a ton of talent without him. They need a hybrid-flex TE, but other than that, I question Pitts' opportunity in the system. Him being the replacement for Julio is DUMB. He'll be an injury machine if thats the case. Think they settle with Lance who fits to a T and add a guy like Hunter Long in early day 3..
