Post GM/HC mock


Recommended Posts

First and foremost extend Stafford to gain cap space. 
 

Cuts:

Justin Coleman

Desmond Trufant

Jesse James

Christian Jones

Danny Shelton

Trades:

Kenny G transition tag and traded for a 3rd rd pick.

DShawn Hand traded for WR Andy Isabella. This adds speed to our WR corps and Isabella is vastly underused in ARI.

FA:

Cap space of about $30 mil:

WR- Corey Davis- Came on strong this season. He will replace Kenny G at a lower cost.

WR- Josh Reynolds- the Holmes connection and LA Rams drafted Van Jefferson to make him expendable. Good slot WR for us.

LB- Alex Anzalone- fast LB that is ready to start. Has the NO connection with Campbell.

FS- Marcus Williams- Walker and Harris are probably not starting quality and Williams is a solid FS.

DT- Solomon Thomas- coming off injury but started showing signs of being worth the #3 pick before he got injured. Perfect gamble FA.

CB- Akello Witherspoon- tall outside CB that can battle for the starting job or be good depth for injuries if not.

CB- Desmond King- strictly a NB but the guy just seems to make plays. We need that.

Draft:

1- MLB- Micah Parsons- difference maker! Tone setter for the middle of our D.

 

2- DT- Daviyon  Nixon- this guy is becoming my favorite player in the draft. Love the way he plays! Can pressure from inside.

3- S- Paris Ford- excellent playmaker for the S spot. Another big hitter playmaker.


4- LB- Pete Werner- our LBs are atrocious so adding more speed.

5- CB- Ambry Thomas- sat out the year but has man to man coverage skills and has NB potential.

Don't mind the picks or the cuts. I don’t think Arizona would do that trade, and if you're gonna keep Stafford and tag Golladay then you should keep him too.

You could be right. I have been trying to find a way to get Isabella since his draft year. Maybe wishful thinking but they never use him it seems. I wouldn’t  mind keeping Kenny G if the price is right but there are a lot of good FA WRs that I think will be cheaper than Kenny G. Davis, Juju, ARob, Chris Godwin, Curtis Samuel, Will Fuller are all FAs and all won’t get the $18 mil a year Kenny G reportedly wants. I wouldn’t pay Kenny G over $12 honestly.

I really like this.  Wouldn't mind adding another DE, especially if we don't keep Okwara and trade Hand. But like adding Thomas and Nixon to the interior of our D line.  You have added talent to each level of the D and the revamped WR core is solid even if it is a slight downgrade from where we are now.

Yea agreed. I forgot to use the other 3rd pick for Kenny G in this mock so maybe a DE there. But I  think they give Austin Bryant and Julian Okwara DE reps opposite Flowers plus Thomas can play the big DE role as well as he has position versatility.

Or maybe a cheap vet like Ryan Kerrigan as a pass rush specialist

I really like it. Especially moving Golladay. I would like the Lions to keep him but don’t think he’s worth tag money. He’s great at what he does (contested catches) but he doesn’t get separation. I think they can improve the WR room by looking elsewhere.

Agreed.  The extra 3rd would be helpful here. And/or signing Kerrigan.  Just need something else there IMO.  I like Bryant and Julian but they are extremely unknowns at this point.

I agree completely.  And in my comments above I said a downgrade from what we have now but thats only if KG is healthy, which he wasn't and we still could throw the ball this year.  I like KG but just seems like so many better ways to spend the money, even though I hate letting go of one of the few we have developed.

Yea I agree. For me it’s all about what Kenny wants and I read it’s close to $18 a year. That’s vastly overpaying IMO. It’s a pretty deep FA WR class as well.

It’s also likely one of the top WR will be there at pick 7.

True but I’m on the Parsons train. The only WR I would consider taking at 7 is Chase.
