I'm very hopeful that we use draft capital to acquire Aaron Rodgers, so I'm not thinking we draft anyone as a plug-and-play starter. Fix the effing OL: Let Fant, McGovern, Ogbuehi and Feeney walk Re-sign Herbig as depth OT target: Orlando Brown Jr. with the intent to have Duane Brown as depth, Mehki to compete for RT with Max Mitchell Plan B for tackle: RT Mike McGlinchey with the intent to have Max Mitchell as depth, with Duane Brown and Mekhi at LT C target: Jason Kelce, guy is older but the best C in football and a culture-maker Plan B for center: Rodney Hudson, OG target: Ben Powers with the intent of playing him on the right side, Laken on the left and using AVT at one of the tackle positions Plan B for guard: Dalton Risner Potential outcome: Orlando Brown, AVT, Kelce, Powers, McGlinchey RB depth: Targets guys who can carry the load in-needed, but are ideally not going to get start $. This gives us insurance for Breece and fills the talent gap behind him, because I'll be honest Bam was the best option, but we need at least 2 guys at all times. Names I think fit the strategy: D'earnest Johnson, Donta Foreman, Dontrell Hilliard, Alexander Mattison (there are a ton of FA RB this year, so there's going to be quite a shuffle around the league) I think Kareem Hunt, Saquon, Jamaal, Josh Jacobs, Mile Sanders, Tony Pollard, Montgomery, and Singletary all get paid like starters WR depth: FA class sucks here At best, you get someone like Darius Slayton just to punt Braxton Berrios to the moon, the target here would be a guy who can spot-start and play special teams (which I think Slayton excels at?) Maybe if we get A-Rod we add Lazard, but I'm not high on him as a starting option QB: I like the idea of acquiring Aaron Rodgers, even if it cost our first rounder I also like the idea of keeping our first rounder and adding David Carr or Jimmy G I'm not sure what it'd take to get Lamar, but this to me seems like the least likely thing to happen I like guys like Brisset, Minshew and Darnold, but if this is the path we pursue then **** everything else I've wasted my time typing up Secondary: Assuming we spent a ton on OL, there's still got to be a plan to upgrade FS Lamarcus Joyner I think the guy to get here is Jordan Poyer, but I'd be very happy with Jessie Bates III or Jimmie Ward I believe the rest of this position group must be built out of the draft, you cannot 'buy' everything Linebacker: Kwon and Quincy are both due to UFA Unless you can bag a guy like Lavonte David or Tremaine Edmunds, I think you try to fill this with guys that can do their job well - as we've done the past couple years Edge and DL: I like most of who we've got on roster, but... I wouldn't say no to Daron Payne or Javon Hargrave, and if they wanted to just add a veteran EDGE like Justin Houston to the rotation, that'd be t!ts 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
