So yeah, this is another mock, just wanted to add a different flavor in the Title so people click the link. The mock is made with the intention of winning the SB this year and to do that future resources will be spent (cap, picks).
We start with 10.7M of cap space after the Funchess signing.
Tramon Williams 1Y/1.047M, 0.885 Cap Hit
Delanie Walker 1Y/2M
Tramon can still be our slot CB and if his play falls he can still play in dime/dollar packages. Delanie becomes our veteran pass catching TE. Now we have 9.1M in cap space aprox.
The Packers send Lane Taylor, MVS, a 2nd round pick and a 7th round pick (7.236) for OBJ.
We get our second star reciever, no more excuses for AR. His 3 starting WR are now Adams, Beckham Jr. and Funchess. We do not have enough cap space this year. OBJ's cap hit is 14.25M and we only free up 4.1M with Lane Taylor, which would leave us with -1M in cap space aprox. So...
Z. Smith's Roster Bonus (9.5M) is reconverted in SB, giving us 6.3M of cap space. Now we have 5.3M aprox of cap space. That means that we just have enough money to sign our draft picks.
We are still missing a starting DL. Gute starts to see how the board falls and decides to trade up:
GB sends his 2020 & 2021 1st round picks to SF for the 13th overall pick (a trade down could make a lot of sense for SF, since they have the tool to compete for many years).
1.13 Javon Kinlaw DL, South Carolina
We get a top prospect that can start contributing from day 1. No major holes in our roster are left.
3.94 Saahdiq Charles OT, LSU
This is a good OT class, and although the top guys will probably gone, we will need a developmental RT that can start either in 2021 or 2022. Saahdiq has good size and is pretty young.
4.136 Logan Wilson LB, Wyoming
We are still pretty thin at ILB, so adding another body will be pretty useful. Wilson is among the crop of LBs that will be selected between the 3rd and 5th rounds.
5.175 Albert Okwuegbunam TE, Missouri
Once a 2nd round-type prospect, his idiocy and luck of production have made him fall in the board. Gute hopes that going to church every week and to Wendy's every fortnight will help him develop the tools he has.
6.192 Lamical Perine RB, Florida
We get another RB to compete with Dexter Williams for the 3rd spot.
6.208 Kindle Vildor CB, Georgia Southern
High-Sparq guy, might help in ST.
6.209 L'Jarius Sneed S, Louisiana Tech
Same thing as above.
7.242 Dominik Eberle K, Utah State
German dude to compete with Crosby. Who knows, he might replace him at some point. Not bad to have some insurance.
So yeah, we are winning the SB with this team.
