I think Jeff Risdon’s mock was mostly solid in theory- but some of the individual choices were odd….
To summarize- we’d be adding Bradberry, Tomlinson, Pratt, Elliott, and Cominsky to 3 plus year contracts from 12-13M (Bradberry) to 6.5M (Commish)…. All these guys are from 27-30 years old in 2023…
I would guess most would be 3 year deals and average about 8-9M each… 45M APY collectively-
- sometimes the key to asset acquisition is figuring out what else you could buy with the same funds…. In this case?
- Jamel Dean (26)- 15M APY
- Cam Sutton (27)- 8M APY
- G Pratt (27)- 8M APY
- Ashawn Robinson (28)- 3.5M APY
- J Williams (28)- 4.5M APY
- C Rush- 3.5M APY
- I Buggs (26)- 2.75M APY
- same 45M…. But I think we’d be better off?
2023 Draft- trade #6 for #8 and #44
Brian Branch- this love truly completes our secondary. Could make it elite!!!
Bijan- no other sure playmaker fell…. I didn’t like Torrence this early, or in our system- but I like him.
Darnell Wright- improvement at RG whip will kick out to RT so Sewell can move to LT in 2-3 years
Keion White- our rush DT….rotates with Wormley there
Tuli Tuipulotu- replaces Commish with more pass rush chops. Battles paschal for Commish snaps.
AT Perry- big, fast, chark replacement.
Ivan pace- rush LB to rotate with Houston
Jake Moody- fixes K
Keion White/Buggs/Levi O
Pratt/I Pace Jr
Then we have options with Jacobs, Okudah, where to play Branch, and if Walker comes back.
We add a top 3 coverage graded LB in the NFL?
We lose Commish, Harris, and Romeo…. We add Tuli, Keion, and Ashawn…. We literally get younger, bigger, faster, and better at rushing QB
We add a get and rolled QB to the room…
We save Swaggy and add friggin Bijan
We lose Chark, but give more snaps to Jamo, and add 6’5” Perry
We add Wright at RG, but eventually RT
