What’s there not to like ?    His floor is Jarvis Landry imo.   

IIRC, Higgins plays outside the numbers a lot and doesn't like coming into the middle of the field.

IDK.   He seems more limited in his route flexibility to me. 

 

There is the below, however, which should endear him to McD:

Shouldn't we get a handle on the combine and FA first before we indulge in these mock drafts.

 

Doing mocks before that are pretty useless.

I always try and do one pre-FA and one after. It does normally change things and interesting to track how.

I would love to do a mock before FA, but we have no idea who is going to do what.

 

I understand why you do a mock, but for me if I posted a mock before FA, I would usually look foolish. 😁

I don’t think it’s about being “right” as much as it is a primer for the entire process. GB follows this stuff very closely, and I appreciate it as I really don’t know much about these guys other than the big names. I personally find it helpful and I appreciate the info and opinions. Just my opinion....

 

 

Now, do I recommend it for everyone? No, because most people don’t follow it as closely as GB and it is generally too early to be overloaded with this stuff, as you say. A taste is fine with me.

I don't mind Higgens, but personally I'd prefer Jefferson. I like the size speed ratio of Higgens and the catch radius he has but, I really think Jefferson is going to be the steal at WR. He's got the ability at the line to make the press miss and set up his route against the DB to create separation. Plus he's a hell of a blocker

He has my blessing.    Higgins is a badass imo.

If Simmons falls past 8, and I'm Beane, I find a way to get him. No questions asked. And then find a way to land Denzel Mims. I know, wishful thinking....

Good work. I'm personally not that excited about Higgins since I think he's a bit slender and possiby injury-prone in the nfl. Does he have the strength to fight off NFL DBs and battle for the ball/

I’m a big fan of trading down. We have holes all over the place. People say that we lack A+ players but I disagree. I could see Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds and Devin Singletary being elite players and then we have TreDavious White who has been elite. We need to move down and accumulate picks. RB2, WR1, WR4, OG, RT, DT, DE, OLB, backup MLB, CB2 are all need areas. I did a trade down on first pick and this was my haul, I think most of the players would stick.

 

 

Round 1 Pick 32 (K.C.): Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU (A-)
Round 2 Pick 22: Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin (A)
Round 2 Pick 31 (K.C.): Darryl Williams, C/OG, Mississippi State (A-)
Round 3 Pick 22: Kenny Willekes, DE, Michigan State (A)
Round 3 Pick 32 (K.C.): Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State (A+)
Round 4 Pick 22: Alton Robinson, DE, Syracuse (A+)
Round 5 Pick 9: Raequan Williams, DT, Michigan State (A+)
Round 5 Pick 21: Scott Lashley, OT, Alabama (A+)
Round 6 Pick 9: Anthony McFarland, RB, Maryland (A+)
Round 6 Pick 22: Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty (A+)
Round 6 Pick 23: Stephen Guidry, WR, Mississippi State (A+)

Why are KC trading UP? They have half their cap tied up in 8 players and their all world QB to pay. They need as many cheap players as they can get. They are the last team that would trade up.

We just disagree on Higgins and Shenault. I have them both in that 2nd tier of receivers but I think Higgins's ceiling is higher. 

 

I don't have any strong opinions on which prospects are better than any other. I feel pretty meh about Higgins but I'll be the first to admit I have no clue when it comes to this stuff. I just think Shenault fits what McDermott and Beane look for - athletic, versatile, high character. The only thing that really worries me about him is his injury history but I don't think they'll care.

I'm not sure about the Detroit-Miami trade for #3.  I might be alone on this but I can see Detroit going with Tagovailoa with that pick.  Patricia is going into year three and needs to show improvement.  Stanford has been there 11 years and they have 3 wildcard appearances and three loses in that time.  They can draft Tua, play Stafford the year and opt out of the last two years of his deal.  

That might put the Giants pick in play for teams looking for a QB in this year's draft.

It’s a draft simulator. If not Kansas City, someone else. Point is to load up on picks and load the roster.

Don't hate it, but I prefer both Shenault and Epenesa over Higgins. 

 

...is the injury a concern?...

Yeah I am actually thinking the exact opposite

 

We dont have holes "all over the place" that is why we are 10 and 6.....most of our roster is already signed......and picking in the 20's.

 

This is where I feel we need to get more specific on exactly what the few holes we have left are

 

I am not a fan of trading up....unless the top 2 WR's start falling....but I am def not a fan of trading down.

Thanks for taking the time to do this..

 

I think Detroit is going to sell that No 3 pick for a kings ransom... more than you have indicated.. ( that’s provided they don’t want Tua themselves)..
 

I hope Higgins is not the pick in Round 1.... I think there is a chance the Bills trade this pick for an established  WR..

4 OT in the top 10..

I noticed that.....and I love gunner and think he really knows his stuff but that is a lot of OT's

 

I think if a quality OT falls to us you really have to look at it.....right now it is still WR for me

I would live with it if they did if they can get a number 1 guy
