I didn't have time last night to check your thread, and I doubt you had time to check mine, but I am struck by the parallels between our Day 2's. Most of the differences are because you had more picks.

I talked about Nakobe Dean. You picked him. Big deal, since everyone was talking about Dean.

I chose between Breece Hall and a specific trade. You did both. We both have Travis Jones. I filled in the card for Marcus Jones but changed it before submitting.

We differed on our TE board, but the differences this year are small. I like McCollum instead of Woolen.

Unfortunately, work has been crazy the past six months, which limited the amount of time I could spend on this week to week. But doing my end of season recap, I have us finishing the year 4-13 and picking #3 in the NFL Draft. Why? We have a lot in common with the Jets, but the Jets had an elite defense this year and still only went 7-10. I think the Stallions's defense would have been more good than elite, so I have us winning less games. The promising news is that our 2022 Draft Class performed exceptionally well. The bad news is that Zach Wilson looks to be a total bust.

Brandon Staley is on the hot seat as the HC, but I bring him back for a final shot at turning the team around. Kellen Moore joins as OC, remedying the biggest problem I had with Staley's staff (Joe Lombardi). Here's my position by position review of our team:

QB - There's no sugarcoating it. It's ugly. Picking #3, I'll likely not be in position to land either Bryce Young or C.J. Stroud. I'll need to consider if I want to explore a trade up to #1, or if I want to stand pat, draft a stud like Jalen Carter or Will Anderson, and look for my QB elsewhere. Minshew is a serviceable backup who will be hitting FA, but he's not a starter. And Zach Wilson has been a total disaster thus far. We're stuck with him for now (barring a trade offer), and I'll have to hope he turns things around. But I'm not putting all my eggs in that basket after his first two seasons.

HB - Breece Hall's injury changed the course of our season. If we could have rode the Hall/Gainwell duo, it would have mitigated the QB problems. Assuming Hall comes back 100% from his injury, he's an absolute stud. He looks like he'll be one of the NFL's best at the position moving forward. Kenny Gainwell is a very good #2 HB. He's a skilled receiver and a slippery runner. Our depth behind Gainwell isn't very good. I'll be looking to improve that this offseason.

WR - Our starting trio at WR is a great group. Amari Cooper put up 78 receptions for 1160 yards and 9 TDs. We'll have a decision to make on his contract this offseason, but I'll likely look to restructure it and keep him. He's a rock solid guy. Amon-Ra St. Brown continued to produce with 106 receptions, 1161 yards, and 6 TDs. He continues to impress and outplay his draft slot. The Cooper/St. Brown pairing is just a perfect one for a skilled QB (which is something we currently lack). Elijah Moore had a down year after his promising rookie season, but I think he's a guy who will eventually break out. Our depth at the position is lacking a bit, though. I'll need to improve that.

TE - While we don't have a stud starter, we have a lot of depth at TE. Hayden Hurst turned in a solid year in Cincy. Otton had a promising rookie year in Tampa. He's a guy I have a lot of belief in moving forward. I think he's going to be a good TE. Tremble and Oliver continued to be rock solid depth players. There's not a lot to say here. I'm happy with the group I have, even if we lack a game changer.

OL - The OL remains the best unit on the team. It bothers me so much that we don't have a good QB. If we did have one behind this OL and with these WRs, we'd have had a great year. None of our OLs are elite players, but they're all quality starters. I'd argue that four of the five are arguably top 10 players at their respective positions. I have Quinn Meinerz taking the starting job from Matt Feiler, as Meinerz had a very good year for Denver, while Feiler was pretty meh for the Chargers. Still, Feiler, Zach Tom, and McGary made for insanely good backups.

DL - We lack an elite player, but I really like our rotation. SJD is a good all around player. Khalen Saunders and Charles Omenihu had great years as rotational players. Travis Jones showed flashes as a rookie. Armon Watts started for much of the year in Chicago, as did Bilal Nichols in Vegas. Both were serviceable enough. I still have high hopes for Matt Butler as a rotational player. That said, I'd love to add a game-wrecker like Jalen Carter in Nichols's spot.

EDGE - The good news is that Aidan Hutchinson had a great rookie year, finishing with 52 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 9 TFLs, and 3 INTs. Frank Clark, unfortunately, continued to underperform his contract. He's a solid EDGE at best when he's being paid like a great EDGE. He's gone this offseason. Lorenzo Carter had a solid year and is good depth. Roche and Robinson didn't do a lot. I'll need to replace Frank Clark this offseason.

ILB - Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah continues to be a good player when healthy. He's a great athlete who is a weapon in pass defense. But he has issues staying healthy. Nakobe Dean didn't play much with the Eagles, but I'm high on him. I think he'll develop into a quality player. Jack Sanborn put up great tackling production with the Bears when he got a chance to play. He had 59 tackles in his 6 starts before suffering an ankle injury and going on IR near the end of the year. That's promising. Jojo Domann showed well on special teams as a rookie. I like this group, but I will likely look to add depth due to JOK's issues staying healthy. Despite my projected depth chart, I have Sanborn winning the starting job and playing for most of the year.

CB - IMO, this is the second best unit on the team. Tariq Woolen broke out in a major way as a rookie and has the makings of a potential impact player in the future. Kendall Fuller is Kendall Fuller, an above average CB who is a very good fit for this scheme. Marcus Jones played well as a rookie for the Patriots. Troy Hill continued to be a solid player for the Rams when healthy. We had a good group this year.

S - Unfortunately, Elijah Molden suffered an injury early in the season and missed the year. Geno Stone stepped in, but he's not the same caliber of player. I continue to think John Johnson III would be a very good safety in this scheme, as he was for Staley in 2020. Cleveland is misusing him imo. I'll be looking to improve my safety depth this offseason, but I'm comfortable with JJIII and Molden starting. (I know Molden is a slot CB in Tennessee, but I think he'd be a great safety in the Fangio defense that Staley runs.)

Special Teams - I totally got lucky with Ryan Wright. I freely admit that I know nothing about scouting punters, so it was a total shot in the dark to draft him. It panned out beautifully, as he was a borderline top 10 punter in the NFL as a rookie. Evan McPherson took a slight step back as a sophomore, but he's a solid Kicker. I'm very happy with my Kicker and Punter.
