I think the Bungles will win enough to not be top pick. I see it as a two way race between us and Miami. Which would be so Jetsy for us to get #2 and Miami to get #1 because we know they will not trade the ticket to Trevor to us no matter what we offer.

Depending on how this all plays out for the remainder of the season, I would be more in favor of just drafting Fields if he were to be available to the Jets.  This way I can keep the rest of my draft capital to fill out the offense.   So much of this will change however.  

It's not unrealistic to think that a team like the Bengals or the Dolphins get the #1 pick and end up having to use it.  The market won't be that vast as a lot of bad teams have recently invested in young QBs, and many of the teams that may be looking for one could still be average this year.

It also may be too soon to say that Fields shouldn't be the pick, regardless.

We are still going to compete for the division, I have no idea what you guys are blathering on about.

I'd bet you said this last year as well.

Definitely could be too soon. But my opinion is there will be at least one team (probably more) willing to mortgage an absurd amount to draft Lawrence #1 overall. Could be perfect storm for a real old fashioned bidding war.

There often is, so obviously I won't discount that.  But, it depends on what the team at #1 wants.  If a team lands at 10, maybe the #1 doesn't want to drop that far.  Maybe they still love someone top 3?  All I'm suggesting is that there's a good chance, if you want #1 this year, you're going to need to be top 5 to get there.  Certainly could be wrong.

I think a more interesting question--if I may--is what if Jets are sitting on the clock at #1 and someone offers a Ricky Williams type trade. What does Joe do?

Depends where the next pick is coming from.  If I think I can get Fields, and I feel good about him in April, make the deal.  If it means I'm not getting a QB, then I'm out.

Fair. What about if it's includes dropping to #5. No guarantees there. 

I'm out.

You don't pass on the opportunity to draft a FQB when you don't have one.  Our feelings on Darnold appear to be in sync.  There should be little we fear more than him going whatever it takes to get the #1 pick this year, and then giving him a bunch of weapons so he can perpetually keep us at 8-8, vastly decreasing the likelihood of us being in a position to pick up a QB.  Let's not get Chad Pennington'd.
