Like I said this will obviously change but I don't see many teams out there clamoring for QB's this year. I also think the NFL teams see that this year is kind of a let down for QB's. I could see there being a total of 3...MAYBE 4 QB's taken in the 1st and that is a big maybe. If the Chiefs don't take one I could see 2, maybe 3 going in the first.
That'd mean we could get Teo and then trade back up in the first if needs be. If not take Wilson with the first pick of the 2nd round. How unbelievable would that be? Get a monster ILB AND a new QB that could be a franchise QB.
I would love to get Manti Teo. He is a beast and a great leader on the team and defense. He is also more mature than the average college players are. Being the husband to a die hard ND fan and living in Hawaii, I have watched a lot of his play and a lot about his background/family/hardships. Getting him would solidify our ILB corps for the next 5-10 years. By the time he hits his peak (~5 years) DJ will be on the decline, but our D will still be solid.
That having been said, I cannot endorse this move unless we get someone in the offseason (FA or trade) for QB AND draft a young one. Otherwise, I feel like our hands are tied and we HAVE to get a QB ... unfortunately.
Find a way to get Matt Flynn. Then use the 1st round pick to fill another hole. I like Simon from OSU. I understand that we need an OLman, but don't see one worth a first pick. maybe second round. I think Simon would help the pass rush that would make this team a lot better.
Rolando McClain just became available. The Chiefs have to worst record in football. All they have to do is put a claim on him and he INSTANTLY upgrades the ILB position. Yes... the same McClain who was the 7th overall pick two years ago out of Alabama.
If the Raiders are dumb enough to give up on a 3rd year first round pick, let's hope Pioli and co. are just as stupid.
Pioli wasted the number one spot on the waiver wire by claiming Hayworth Hicks. You know the undrafted G that has bounced off two other team PS.
Are u ****ing kidding me. Pii waisted the #1 spot waiver wire for a ps ayer who would have cleared the waiver wires. Pioli should be fired on the spot. He has no clue what hes doing. If this is true.
