I disagree, we are looking at a playoff window that is open right now. Grab a difference maker that can contribute in a playoff push. A turnover, a sack a TD can swing an entire game. Look at the contributions the Chiefs got this year from their rookie class during their run.
Young would be the exception for me but there is a .01 chance he is there when we pick.
I just said this in another thread. The choice may come down to Levis or Carter. I was not impressed with Levis on the field this year but they say the NFL people are very high on him. The one thing we don’t know without being in the interview process is what’s between their ears. I know Levis is very tough and he does have a rocket for an arm.
There are a number of players that could contribute. Heck look what the Chiefs did with their rookie class during the playoff push.
The positions I’d like to solidify would be DL and DB. So take your pick on whichever prospect you prefer. Gonzo, Witherspoon,Wilson, maybe Anderson falls to us. Trade back a few spots pick up Branch, lots of options.
I think Hooker is just a product of the system they ran at Tennessee. The guy never did anything for 5 years. He reminds me a lot of Andre Ware but I think Ware had a much better arm. I think the media puts a lot of hype on Hooker and deservedly so. He was on his way to a heisman. I would take guys like Bennett and Tune before Hooker. I have been wrong before.
I would take Carter hands down unless Sheila says absolutely not. In that case I would take a hard look at Levis. I think we can win with Goff if he is surrounded with enough talent. I also see what Sean Mcvay saw. You just wish he could stretch the field a bit more. Levis does have that ability.
Who knows we need a rookie to work at being ready every one is a gamble just some better odds
When you look at Anderson an Wilson are gone an Lions likely pass on Carter who you taking at 6 trade down helps but thats a wish not a fact right now. Carter is close to a pass fact unless Lions adjust standard
I agree its not to replace Goff an I would take Carter unless in interviews he shows same lack of interest in game. so if 3 position players are gone might as well take a QB we need one I hope later to develop at least as backup
