Pretty awful offseason for Denver. Resigning Simmons is a must (he will probably be tagged), but not resing either Harris and not being able to sign any of the top OLs names even with all the cap Denver will have this offseason it will be a letdown if this happens.

I like the Diggs pick, tho I would prefer Ruggs at that spot.

I'm confused.....

We swap QB's with Carolina (never going to happen), but what is the point of the pick swap (that wasn't even reflected in the draft portion), since it's only 2 spots difference...

I don't see them banking a whole lot on Cam Newton, and I think that if they aren't going to draft a QB, then theyre going to roll with the short term answer of Tyrod, until they can get a long term solution.

Also, where exactly is the money going? We lost Gordon, Rivers, and would have ~$60m in cap space, and the only thing they use it for is to resign Henry and sign a backup DL?  I get they have other contracts, but yeah no....

This would be a full disaster of a chargers offesason.

Jags get no FA's and draft a QB not worth a top 10 pick and a RB in the top 20.

Interesting...

cool with aj in the 1st but Hooper will be back with atlanta we are already working on his contract according to dimitroff supposedly. He's the 1 guy i would be extremely surprised if we let go as much as we value him.

 I toiled between Ruggs and Diggs for the Denver pick. The depth at receiving broke the tie.

Well, obviously I see things differently. Cam Newton to Los Angeles makes sense for a number of reasons:

  • If healthy, Cam Newton is among the top players at the position.
  • The Chargers are seeking to rebuild their fanbase and actually have home games in 2021; adding a superstar player like Newton can help attract new fans and/or fans the player.
  • The Chargers have a win-now roster and Tyrod Taylor is not in the caliber of players who can make the team sincerely competitive.

Rivers to Carolina makes sense because he is from the South and played in North Carolina. Further, Carolina has a similar glut of offensive weapons as he had in Los Angeles with a better offensive line.

I don't know where you found the opinion that Hargrave is a backup player. He's a starter for Pittsburgh and would start in Los Angeles.

The pick swap makes sense because any team would gladly move up one spot if given the opportunity. Also, thank you for noticing the mistake.

The opinion that Eason isn't worth a top 10 pick is just that, an opinion. I happen to think otherwise and believe I will be proven right come draft night. Swift makes sense because the Jaguars play in a division with two Swift-like players in Kamara and McCaffrey. They know better than most teams that a multi-faceted running back can change the dynamic of an offense.

The Jaguars are in a perilous cap situation and there are more attractive landing spots. Not all free agents are represented (never gets old saying this every year).

I always do a cursory search to get an idea of whether a player will re-sign. Usually, the player's perspective tends to be most informative to what ends up happening. Based on that, I have Hooper not re-signing. Also, the Falcons aren't in a great cap situation.

Right now we're up against it, but there figures to be a lot of cuts/restructure coming. Dareus frees 20M alone.

The Jaguars are in the AFC South, not the NFC South.

The Jaguars just kept the GM and HC that love Minshew and we still have a 20M Foles on the book. I don't expect to see a GM/HC overdrafting a rookie QB when they're in win now mode.

They also have Fournette who was too 5 in all purpose yards and a rookie in Armstead who played solid when given opportunities. I see the likelihood of a RB top 20 as slim to none.

Depth of the class or team depth? After Sutton we have guys that are just there to fill the roster. Hamilton and Patrick make some plays, but can't be count on.

For CB, hopefully with a healthy season from Bryce Callahan and more learning under Fangio for Devontae Harris and Isaac Yiadom we will have better depth at CB than WR, tho we will probably still need to add another guy to start, either at FA or draft.

My hope we find a CB in FA or 2nd round. Ruggs fit with Lock is too good to pass.

My fault I don’t know why I mixed up the NFC and AFC south. Either way, I like swift the first the Jags. Fournette is top 5 in all purpose yards not because he is a proficient receiver but because they throw to him. He can catch, but he’s not a potent route runner out of the backfield. I believe Swift can be an offense defining player ala the players I mentioned.

In this scenario I have the Jags trading Foles to the Colts. Like I said before, I expect Eason to go top 10 so ironist a difference of opinion. I don’t think Minshew would stop the Jaguars from taking him if their evaluation is anywhere close to mine.

If the Falcons don't resign Hooper out of cap reasons, then they're going to end up spending a premium draft pick on a Tight End, in a draft where they need so much help on defense - so you might as well resign him. Good tight ends are so difficult to come by, when you have one, you have to hold onto them. The Falcons can still restructure some guys to get some needed cap relief, if necessary.

Depth in the class. For instance, I like Brandon Aiyuk a little more than Ruggs from what I've seen and he should go no higher than the second round. Also, when Kansas City is in your division, quality corners are gold.

I'm not saying Fournette is perfect but we were last in run defense, have a serious LT/RG problem, no TE, Chark and a bunch of "guys" at WR, and a need for a Ramsey replacement. With all that Minshew won 6 games and statistically was just as good if not better than most rookies this year.

Yet we're going to take a QB and a RB.

I don't see it. I guess if you're in love with Eason I can see why you do it but given the Jags FO/coaching situation I don't think they're taking a developmental QB top 10, nor a RB when that's not even a need (if you just think we need a certain type of back with him you can find a solid guy in round 3/4+).

Except that you have Shelby Harris as the DL you're projecting the Chargers to sign, not Hargrave (who you're projecting to Carolina).

And "excitement over the team" isn't what's largely responsible for the low home support turnout for the Chargers.  Now, granted, Spanos and the people he surrounds him with aren't very introspective so they may well convince themselves that it is, but the biggest reason (which doesn't look like it will be changing with the move to SoFi) for the lack of homefield advantage is the utterly indiscriminate sale of tickets.  Spanos isn't very liquid and the money for that relocation fee the league assessed in order to move the team had to be accounted for somewhere on the ledger.  Average cost to attend a Chargers game this season (before even accounting for the $20 non-tailgate parking, $16-20 beers, ticket agency chargers - because God knows we have to charge extra to give people hard tickets these days and the other edge of that sword is charging a fee to the ticketing agency like AXS to get digital tickets through their app, etc.) was $150-200 per person... for the cheap seats... in a soccer stadium.  The issue with the indiscriminate bit is that there is a ton of resale of Chargers tickets that goes on to people coming in from out of town.  I know multiple Rams fans who subsidized the cost of their own season tickets because they bought Chargers season tickets and resold them at a markup to visiting fans.

The "bring in Cam Newton because he might be a top player if he's healthy (which he hasn't been in quite a while)" is really one small step from "draft whatever QB is coming out of USC regardless of whether he's good or not because name recognition will get the ignorant masses through the gates."  Again, granted, it's the same sort of reductionist, actually-insulting-the-intelligence-of-the-local-fans brand of logic that Spanos has utilized since entering the LA market.
