The Dolphins have apparently been engaged in legitimate discussions with the Redskins about moving up to #2.

They apparently aren't content to sit and wait and possibly get sniped for their QB of choice. (Still rumored to be Tua.)

That would be the smart move. Hope it doesn’t cost them too much but expecting no one to leapfrog them for the very clearly second best QB of the draft would be naive.

It will cost a ton, missing out on Young will be huge

I'd trade up for Young or Burrow. That would be it.

It just depends, especially for a QB. If you scout and interview and evaluate a guy, and you believe him to be a franchise QB, you do what you have to in order to get him.

We've seen it work out more often than not in recent history. The Rams traded up for Goff, who, despite his flaws, got them to a Super Bowl. The Eagles traded up for Wentz who was having an MVP caliber season until a freak injury, and that still put them into position to win a Super Bowl. Chiefs traded up a ton for Mahomes, won a Super Bowl. Texans traded up a ton to get Watson, have been playoff contenders ever since.

If Chase Young falls to 3, I will streak through the woods

I'd be surprised if Washington trades away the #2 pick, but I guess if their evaluation of Young is that he isn't an elite, DPOTY calibre guy, then it makes sense?

I don’t know under what circumstance Young wouldn’t be looked at as that caliber player, but we also thought that about Jadeveon Clowney and he got traded for peanuts.

Washington might have to trade Trent Williams and going down to 5 would still net them a top 2 tackle or whatever

I’m just glad we get to have Haskins and Daniel Jones be our competition for the next 5 years.

Works both ways.

Yeah, I don't think any NFC East team is particularly scared of their rivals' QB.

Homer alert: KJ Hill is going to be a steal in the third or fourth.

He’s fast enough, runs good routes and has reliable hands. That isn’t homerish especially when you look at what McLauren went and pulled

I was going to say the same thing, but didnt want to jinx it.

There are a lot of iterations of the draft that would be amazing for the Lions.

They keep Stafford, Chase Young falls to them.

They trade Stafford, Dolphins dont trade up, they get a healthy Tua.

They get Jeff Okudah as a consolation prize.

They just need a marginally decent OC to utilize Hockesen (sp?) I mean a Patriots intern might be enough.

Also I am surprised the Dallas lets Prescott walk and trade for Stafford thing hasnt gotten more traction. Stafford grew up in a very very affluent part of Dallas (highland park) and there is a good chance his family is friends with Jerry. Interesting aside, Stafford graduated high school with Clayton Kershaw.
