Browns could go Barkley and gamble their guy is there or trade up to 2/3 to get whomever they like (this was the rumor last year in which Pace gamed them to trade up to 49ers for Trubisky). Or they could pick their QB and if Barkley's there, he's there.
I find it unlikely that anyone will be trading up to the Bears to get a QB, as any team trading up will jump to 2/3/4/5 to get who they want.
If 1-4 QB's go in the top 5 picks, that means that Barkley/Chubb/Nelson round out the top 7, leaving the Bears just outside the elite talent. Reminds me of the Kevin White draft, in which Leonard Williams went #6 to the Jets as the last of the top tier players on the board.
I'm trying to come up with a scenario in which the bears end up with one of the elite talents at a position of need. Lots of time before then, lots can change, and I hope it does so that we can end up with a stud pick or a rock solid trade down option. It's possible someone gets despreate and trades up to get Rudolph, or Davenport/Landry, or Edmunds even. Thoughts?


I think we're in a good spot, but not a great one. Barkley/Chubb/Nelson/Fitpatrick seems to be a pretty consensus first tier of non-QBs. If four QBs go ahead of us, which seems more likely than not, then we're guaranteed one of them. If only two or three QBs go ahead of us, then we'll likely have a good chance to trade back with Buffalo or Arizona. I'd feel way better if we had the 7th pick, but 8 should still be good.


I should have thought of Fitzpatrick. Maybe I left him off because we don't have quote the immediate need in the secondary. It sure would feel like a misuse of resources to pick him when we have such high needs in the front 7, especially OLB. Lynch helps, but he's not the stud that we need to strengthen the pass rush. Your point is a good one, though, that if the top four don't go, we have a chance to trade down with someone looking for the last one.

Where that actually leaves us given the strength of our division is obviously in question though.


Yeah, really feels like the offseason to round out the roster and they are doing just that.

I really like what's been done. If this is what they take into the draft, I'm OK with that. But, I'd love to get Justin Pugh at this point. He can play RT, but he's a stud inside. And it'd allow for you to grab D with each of your first 2 picks.

I love Nelson, but I think adding Pugh now and using your top picks on D makes you the better team.

Pugh sounds good, but I also want to see a couple more decent rotation pieces at DE, OLB, and ILB, so not sure how much cap space they have to navigate.

I feel like we're pretty much done and will probably try to extend Fuller, Amos, Goldman, long-term, and maybe have enough left for a cap casualty OL or edge rusher.

Signed Tyler Bray as the 3rd QB. No idea if he can play, but its another guy who knows Nagy's system. I love how they're getting Mitch all these things that conceivably can help him out.

I can see them in a holding pattern while they wait out to see who else gets cut in the coming weeks. It would be nice to improve the OLine and OLB before the draft, because I believe those are the two positions that don't have at least an average/capable starter, assuming Fuller is back.

I did like the idea of waiting the max amount of time to match him in order to hold the Packers cap space hostage, but I'm not at all unhappy with this deal
