    There's something about Baker Mayfield i really like. He reminds me of Brady, the fact he wants to win at all cost.

    Yep. The Draft is still 7 weeks away, and we will have over 6 weeks of free agency to figure into draft calculations before we can really focus on specific needs. Other than a QB prospect we need to see who they release and who they sign before narrowing the focus.

    Hate comparing anyone to 12 but Mayfield probably is the top QB in his class IMO, Darnold isn't talented enough and not thought of as a leader, Rosen has mechanical issues to work out, Jackson has accuracy and frame issues, and Josh Allen makes cool YouTube videos and that's it

    Mayfield is short and arrogant, but has the best arm of the class, best leadership traits perhaps, and mobile

    DEN or NYJ should capitalize if not CLE

    I'm only comparing it from the leadership and winning mentality.

    Gronk's durability will always be an issue and TE should definitely be explored, this O is long overdue a youth/durability infusion (Edelman, Dola, Gronk, Lewis, Marty even)

    Gesicki is quite a talent but FAR from being a complete TE, probably a R3 selection or early Day 3 pick due to his inability to block, the guy is a pure deep threat that will win jump balls a **** ton, great talent whose size, athleticism, and inability to block remind me of Jimmy Graham on NO but not like 87 at all

    Goedert interests me and I have to watch more of him but my favorite TE is Andrews who reminds me of Jason Witten, wouldn't be too opposed to him in NE depending on the circumstances

    If you're looking for the annual Hernandez carbon copy (Jordan Reed, Trey Burton, Engram, Lyerla) even though I doubt BB does, look out for Jaylen Samuels from NC State

    I'm a big Fumagali fan as well and wouldn't mind him here, I think he'll have a long, successful career

    Excellent point, Telvin Smth had an awful rookie year and is now a top LB, thought of as a baller coming out

    Does NE really need a good coverage LB? Younger and more athletic LB against the run but let's leave the coverage to the DBs, shall we

    Who are we going to put on RBs etc?

    The other thing is both are athletic but Malik is more so.

    Bring Marquise Flowers back, KVN was getting better too but inconsistent

    Good point though, I thought immediately of LBs covering TE's

    Dude is literally a copy of 'Dola, I want him in NE real bad

    That being said I want 'Dola back too, WR corps is deep (Edelman, Cooks, Hogan, Dola, MM, PD)

    I think if we can get another Flowers then yes, never going to hurt getting another flowers type player.

    We also need to think of getting a STAR LB, maybe a chung replacement for the future. I know @reamer has got a good idea on the STAR area.

    The TE I really like is Dalton Schultz from Stanford. He is an excellent blocker and will only get better once he adds some more bulk to his frame (6'6" 242lbs). He isn't a vertical seam TE like Gronk or Goedert but he is an excellent underneath receiver. I think he is the best route runner in this TE class and gets in and out of his breaks like someone much smaller. He could be a Jason Witten type TE in the NFL and consistently move the chains.

    ...and he was available as late as the pick Bill used for Cam Fleming, too.
