Don’t choose a quarterback in Rd 2 or 3 for WFT

Don’t choose a quarterback in Rd 2 or 3 for WFT.

In a recent NFL insiders Chad Reuter’s 7 rd mock draft on nfl.com, WFT is using a 3rd round pick on Stanford quarterback Davis Mills.

I say, “ please, no!”

Many outlets in town have Washington trading up for a quarterback. Fine with me considering how non-sensical I believe these drafts are. We will remember Mac Jones and his play in the NFL more likely than  maybe a late Rd. 7 pick…that being said, here is my 3 round WFT mock (4 picks), kind of:

I feel these first four picks (WFT currently has a 1st, 2nd and two 3rds in the 1st 3 rounds) are of more value adding players from different positions other than quarterback unless getting 1 of the 1st rounders QBs which I refer to as ‘the 5 golden rings.’

Quick review of WFTs QB situation:

if you look at WFT‘s QB corps monetary situation for 2021, we should be set.

Not only did WFT go out and pay Ryan Fitzpatrick starter money at $10 million for this season but we re-signed Taylor Henicke to a hefty contract. We paid for Henicke and we also resigned Kyle Allen to a bargain basement standard given NFL starting QB money. On the roster, I am high on the play of Allen and Henicke as our franchise QBs and willing to give Fitzpatrick a shot.

While 1 of the ‘5 golden rings’ quarterbacks early in the draft seem to be the prize of this draft, rd. 1 19 and our rd 2/3 picks will fill out the roster maybe with value picks over another player to contribute to the clamoring of the fan base to start a QBs like Davis Mills by mid-season.

Pick 19:

My pick would be Alijah Vera-Tucker, G-T, USC. However, most mocks have Vera-Tucker going higher to the Los Angeles Chargers (where Vera-Tucker played nearby at USC).

There at 19 should be one of the LBs: JOK, Zaven Collins or Jamin Davis, fine.

2nd Rd:

From my Laymans perspective they’ll be other quarterbacks later in the draft as there are better players available when we pick in the 2nd Rd.

It looks like my favs Clemson HB Travis Ettienne and LSU WR Terrace Marshall, Jr. will be off the board by the time we pick in the 2nd Rd.

Chad Reuter has us going with North Dakota State University OL Dillon Radunz (who I hardly ever heard of before the mock drafts or NDSU as a matter of fact). Fine pick, I guess from what I have read about him.

In my mock if we get Vera-Tucker Rd. 1, excellent options Rd. 2 would be to go defense with:

Jevon Holland, S, Oregon.

Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri.

If we pick JOK or one of the top-rated LBs Rd. 1, options include going offense with:

Radunz

Michigan, OL, Jalen Mayfield

I believe we should avoid Chad Reuter’s Rd. 3 WFT pick of Davis Mills, QB, Stanford (unless Mills is rated to be the next Joe Montana inside of WFT Park).

Here are Rd. 3 picks I like for WFT who are projected to be here for WFTs 2 3rd round picks:

Jordan Brevin, TE, Miami

I also would like WFT to pick up:

Amon’Ra St. Brown, WR, USC—-a possible 3rd round gem.

Other players I think WFT should consider:

Clemson WR Amari Rodgers

UNC LB Chazz Suratt

OSU RB Trey Sermon

Conclusion:

This sets up WFT for a 4th round trade up for a quarterback like Kelly Mond if they decide they must add another young quarterback.

However, remember as of today WFT has a young super mobile QB in Stephen Montez on the roster who could project as our future QB.

Another possible trade up for in Rd. 4,  Kyle Trask, QB, Florida.

Or, WFT could go for a player like:

Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana, if available.

With 4 quarterbacks on the roster this blogger see potential OL, S, WR, TE, or RB, as better value picks in the 1st 3 Rds.

Unless, of course, WFT wants to trade a bunch for 1 of the ‘5 golden rings QBs.’

    All will be answered soon.
    I looked @ AV-T to see why scouts picked him as an IOL not an OT.
    Small hands, short arms, and wingspan are what I came up with.
    Darrisaw’s hands and wingspan are the same, but his arms are 34 1/4″,while AV-T’s arms are 32 1/8″.
    On that basis alone, leverage and punch-holding ability, Teven Jenkins – OSU, Spencer Brown – Northern Iowa, and Tommy Doyle – Miami (Oh) are better tackles in later rounds.
    I’m not saying they are better tackles overall, just in those aspects alone mind you.

  2. FRANK N. STEIN says:

    Just say “no” to QB’s in this draft.
    Amen.
    Of course, if Mac Jones should fall to 019, what’s a GM to do?

  3. FRANK N. STEIN says:

    Love the get of Ereck Flowers yesterday.
    Scratch IOL need from the draft list, lose Wes Martin.
    My current mock:

    Any LB 1 Jeremiah Owusa- Koramoah Notre Dame @ 019
    Will OLB 2 Jabril Cox LSU @ 051
    RT 2 Spencer Brown Northern Iowa @ 074
    TE 2 Brevin Jordan Miami (Fla) @ 082
    RB 2 Khalil Herbert Virginia Tech @ 125
    OT 3 (swing) Tommy Doyle Miami (Oh) @ 165
    FS 2 Christian Uphoff Illinois State @ 246
    WR 5 Jake Harris Central Florida @260
    0LB’s 1 and 2, FS 2 on defense. Sign FA Tre Boston FS 1
    or move L.Collins to Sam LB, and draft either JOK or Will/Cover LB Cox.
    LT 2, TE 2, RB 2, OT 4, WR 5.

    UDFA

    WR Mike Strachan Charleston (WVa)
