This could be one of the most fun first rounds we have seen in a while. You have multiple teams with Qb needs, and this draft easily has 5 Qbs with 1st round talent. Add to that 3 incredibly gifted Cbs with multiple teams needing that as well. Potential of a Te being taken before any Wr taken. Gonna be a blast.

In the I can't believe its a girdle draft rumors......
Per multiple reports - SF offered the #3 pick, Jimmy G, other picks and players to GB for Aaron Rodgers..... LAST NIGHT. Uh....sure....
Per multiple reports - NE is currently negotiating with Jimmy G on an extended contract to make a trade for him....
Per other multiple reports - NE has had extended discussions with Atlanta to get the #4 pick.

First off, GB would be stupid to deal Rodgers, for Jimmy G. Yes they could get a Qb at #3, but you immediately lose at least 3 games more this year.

Second - I see three scenarios with the NE rumors:
1) Belichick doesn't want to rebuild totally and bring up a rookie Qb - this would match his history by the way, and he knows Jimmy G.
2) Both rumors are true - but NE is wanting Jimmy G to be the Qb and are dealing to #4 for Pitts or Chase. THAT actually would be HUGE...
3) He wants to redo Jimmy's deal as the vet starter, get rid of Cam and will draft Qb at #4 to be future. Setting up the next regime in NE.


In the end. we probably won't see any big trades tonight, nor any early...as my guess is no trades up will happen until Carolina is on the clock

And..... to make me feel MORE like I thought - NE has done extensive studies on later rd Qbs like Kellen Mond, David Mills and Kyle Trask

Rumors 49ers will try to trade back into the late 1st round. CB Greg Newsome the talked about target. Makes sense for sure.

Latest betting odds have SF taking Trey Lance at #3
Cb Caleb Farley was retested and came up negative for covid on this 2nd test - still won't be there for draft day today

......or Rodgers 🙃
Saw that. Sounds like no offer was made, but just checking in.

He would be great for a few years, but all that draft capital for a 37 year old QB with a big contract is contrary to their initial goal of having a young stud on a cheap contract
