What to do with Four 7th Round Picks?


 Share

Recommended Posts

You now what I mean.  We have multiple areas that can use upgrades, and we have a great chance to address those.  And set us up for future runs.  I’d hate to move both 1s to move up for 1 person.

I thought it was pretty clear. If you think someone is worth far more than their draft cost, you look to trade up.

Do you feel, there is any one person, worth giving up both our first round picks for? I don’t think there’s a PM2 type impact player for us in this draft.

I did not post that, though it's possible. I said that we could package picks to move up for a player we really liked. I never mentioned either of the first round picks, much less both.

We know what will probably happen. FO will trade up and use them as part of the package. For this thread, we are not going there.

Some ground rules. 

  • Don't expect them to start but rotation depth is OK
  • Do expect them to play ST
  • Multiple picks at one position is cool
  • Assume P, K, LS are filled
  • We have four spread out picks but treat this as four in a row

Where do we want to spend our capital?

Are you saying this simply for purposes of discussion or because you think TT is quality/young enough that he doesn't have to worry about job security?

I'm not necessarily trying to define a stance here, because I have NO clue how to measure punters, but I'm thinking I don't feel as happy with TT as maybe I should? Like, again, I don't know how to really evaluate P, so maybe that's overstating it.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me he was a top 5 P and I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me he was a bottom 5 P. I legitimately have no idea, but I will admit I have personally felt like he was closer to the bottom than the top, probably just still being scarred from the playoffs his rookie year or whatever? I also seem to remember him around bottom 5 PFF mid-season (prolly bc attempts?), in those "top 5 / bottom 5 each position" threads in NFL Gen? Maybe I'm just making **** up.

If this is just like "who cares bc we never punt anyway" or you just looking for more stimulating discussion around position players, my apologies. I'm not trying to build a case against him, more just trying to figure out what we think about him, because I would assume instinctually a P in the 7th with four picks could make some sense, if they weren't to package them in a trade obviously.

I have no problem with the three specialists but the return and coverage teams need major work. They lost at least four major players--Do'D, Sorenson, Watts, Lammons and both PR and KR are gone. Some of the reserve/Future players will get a whot, but 7th round is a place to draft someone with ST in mind.

Hopefully draft 4 hall of fame cornerbacks.

I want to get a return specialist. Generally speaking, our ST have been gutted. 

RB makes sense. A bocking TE. It's a good draft for S, if we don't take one earlier.

Or trading up for a targeted player.

2x RB - hoping one sticks as rotational guy. They had some success with UDFA here.

IOL - you'll never know what you find. Getting a cheap backup for four years may help

LB - think Niemann (best case) or DOD (not best case, but as ST still of use)

These seem to be the closest. We took two CB, a RB, and used one pick in a trade up.

Looking back six weeks after the draft, just before minicamp, it's pretty clear that the Chiefs drafted players that they did not think they could sign as UDFA.

Having already drafted 2 CB and a S, not to mention acquiring Justin Reid and Lonnie Johnson, signing DBs was going to be a tough sell. So, they get Jaylen Watson who is a big fast but very rough CB, and Nazeeh Johnson who is a smallish, fast, very experienced Dorian o'Daniel replacement. 

They followed that with what is regarded as one of the best UDFA groups in the league. Mike Rose will kill on ST and be a solid 4th LB. Justyn Ross is the guy everyone drools over but no one was willing to invest a pick in.
