    Lololololololol. The offseason, when every player who has shown any upside but has yet to play a complete 16 game season is gonna be an All-Pro
    I'm confident that Payne, Hurst, and Phillips could all be available and would certainly help as a rookie. Of course a lot of fans, especially Dallas fans, say "help" and mean "play like defensive mvp". Because of course.

      Maybe LVE at 1?
      He's the only first round prospect they've actually hosted, so it would make a lot of sense. They also seem very interested in Darius Leonard (whom they hosted), Uchenna Nwosu, and Oren Burks too.

      As for pass rushers, they've hosted Sweat (who they seem to like a lot), and Arden Key. Seem to like Ade Aruna and Sam Hubbard a lot too, and with all the OSU connections on the coaching staff, he might be the round 1 pass rusher target.

        Trading up into the top half of the first for an off-ball LB is very dumb. We have a deal.

          Yeah I mean the talent base is much stronger than it used to be, but they need contingencies everywhere. Almost all of their young pieces have some baggage and/or an expiring deal, or just haven't proven it for a whole year yet.

          Time moves fast in the NFL, man. One day guy's a young player showing flashes and then all of a sudden it's his contract year and you have to make a decision, and a lot of decisions based around that decision.

            I like him as a mack in a traditional 3-4 with that 2 gap front to keep him clean. If his jersey is getting dirty, he's pretty useless.

              Yep, put him on a role where he can use his recognition skills and mobility. Let someone else play the Buck.

                A lot like the Ravens used to do with Bart Scott and Ray Lewis. Let the other guy (Scott) play the "fullback" role, eating up blockers, while Smith scrapes over and cleans up the play.

                • Don't know if its been mentioned, but the Colts have like 5 picks in the first three rounds. They could turn things around quick if Luck is healthy.

                  • Hey, the Jets signed Kevin Minter. Good, physical inside plugger at LB and great team guy. Where's Sienna to explain to me the Jets sudden competence.

                    • Seems like we had a week or so of "maybe Josh Allen is the top QB" followed by a week of "Josh Allen has no situational awareness."

                      And still 16 days to go, dammit.

                        Yep. The previous regime was foolish and squandered Luck's youth. He dragged that team around kicking and screaming.

                          Gotta get that #content and those hot takes.

                          For real though, Josh Allen is fools gold, IMO. Of course I've been wrong about QBs before.

                            That one guy who is having a good offseason this year before pads go on and only played on special teams last year is going to be a monster!

                              Don't celebrate them yet. They already signed Avery Williamson to do the same thing.

                                That's funny, I think Goedert is fools gold. If he's available, I'll be stunned if the Broncos and Elway pass. He's the same guy as Elway coming out. I think a lot will depend on which franchise he goes to, but I suck out loud evaluating QBs. I mean, Jackson being straight ass is obvious, Luck was can't miss, but other than those obvious ones...
