We don't know what will be available at 20. There are always surprise risers and fallers.

That said, I would not take QB at 20 unless there was a surprise drop. Lance is raw and has not played elite competition.
Jones is accurate but not mobile, which probably makes him a better Nick Foles, IMO. For comparison, Tua graded higher. He might get replaced in Miami.
I do think we should draft a QB, it is a deep draft. I personally like Kellen Mond as a draft and develop. But not round 1.

I also dislike the Moore pick. A 1st round WR should be your #1 and in most cases, your #1 should be a bigger, high-point WR like A-Rob.

This draft is deep in OL. Christian Darrisaw, Rashawn Slater, etc. There are half a dozen that would be worth our pick. Grade them out and take the highest grade available.

I’m selling out this draft for Zach Wilson and offensive line.

You won't catch me badmouthing Elijah Moore. He's a great WR, and had a great season and career at Ole Miss. He will be a stud for someone.

I don't want him in the 1st round either. Our pick has to be a QB or an OT.

Sadly it's looking more and more like they're going to lose ARob, which honestly they just can't let happen. Not sure if they can tag him or what but if so they should....

They’re $2mil over next years expected salary cap before signing anyone.

An example of what I would do, no trades included:

1. Sam Cosmi, OT Texas
2. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR USC
3. Tyreke Smith, Edge Ohio St.
5. Kellen Mond, QB Texas A&M
6. Bubba Bolden, S Miami
6. Paddy Fisher, ILB Northwestern

Cosmi immediately takes over for Leno. At 6 '7', he has length advantage. He also might be best pass protector in draft not named Penei. Bars kicks out to RT to replace Massie.

Brown replaces Miller as essentially the #3.
A-Rob is re-signed. We will also find a WR in FA to replace Wims.

Smith begins as depth but will be groomed to replace Quinn.

Mond steps into the #2/#3 QB slot.  Exactly where depends on what happens with Foles/starter.

Bolden  starts as a depth piece at S, but could win the starting job alongside Jackson.

Fisher is a low-cost flyer on a guy who was once looked at in Dylan Moses territory.
Trevathan replacement in the making.

Paddy Fischer had 402 tackles at Northwestern. Problem with Paddy is he never improved, his 1st 2 years better than his last 2 years. Northwestern's other ILB, Gallagher, was also pretty good.

The offensive line has to be priority. I'd draft more than one lineman....

Haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere...apparently there will be no combine this year.

Team scouts will have to rely on pro days and game film.

I thought they were going to do more regional workout things in smaller groups.

Anybody any good in this bunch? 2 Domers and 2 Bama guys. Nor do all these guys stick and play either. And not all these players are OTs:

Banks is a beast. ND's first option for the running game was to run behind him and Eichenberg.
