We'll see.
Im hoping for our Dak prescott (3rd rounder) at center...

3. Andre Williams. Power runner. Short yardage. Completely deficient in passing game.
4. Derek Watt. Fullback. Undersized. No elite traits. Decent role player.

No one is saying Fournette is not a top 10 pick, but where exactly does he fit ?
There are round seven running backs in this draft.

Missing ? Woodhead type. See woodMock v7.3 ...
Id rather give up our second this year and a second next year to move up and grab Mccaffrey at Pick #20 where hes projected to go than draft fournette.

Did you actually break that game down or are you just giving him credit for being on a good team? I mean technically Peyton Manning played at a SB winning level in his last game, yet I don't think that anyone would be gushing over his input to that game.

I am. I think that both Cook and Mixon will be better NFL RB's.

I would lose my mind if TT did something like that, however I do feel that McCaffrey would have a bigger impact, as he could fill roles that we don't have covered as of yet, ie 3rd down RB, PR/KR returner.

I can assure you if that trade was made, McCaffrey wouldn't be the pick.....and if he was, someone needs to be fired.

There is something to be said for experience. He had a down year in Denver, no doubt about it, but the Broncos were interested in bringing him back and other teams were interested as well. Pretty sure the Chargers don't think it was a lateral move or they would have just paid Dunlap his roster bonus and kept him at LT instead of giving Dunlap $25 million guaranteed.

Your attitude obviously is that your opinion is the only valid one and any other lines of thought or opinions are pointless or ridiculous.

1)1 less than Okung. And honestly, he played every bit as good as Okung did the year (2014) he won the popularity contest.

2) Do I need to name all of the horrible starters in the league with rings or can we just let that ridiculous argument rest?

3) He also had down years in Seattle, why do you think he was able to even get to Denver on a 'prove it' deal?

4) That's what worries me. Because according to what they paid him, they view him as the best LT, nay, the best OL in the league, which is all the more troubling considering this staffs noted inadequacies in selecting OL, whether it be FA or the draft.
