    The entire league. 2020 NFL Draft Order | NFLTradeRumors.co

    I did not realize that the Dolphins have 3 - 1st rounds picks. # 5, 18, 26

    It does not seem very wise for the Texans to have traded away their 1st pick.

    The Raiders have 2 - 1st # 12 and 19

    The Jaguars have 2 - 1st # 9 and 20

    At least the Steelers got a 24 year old player In Fitzpatrick who should improve their defense moving forward imo.

    Tunsil's a top tackle and is still very young, Texans absolutely needed a tackle. It wasn't a horrible trade.

    It’s hard to get a player that good in the first round. Dolphins kinda blew that one.

    The Chiefs are not in good shape from first appearance.

    At the moment pick 30th and have $22.5 K in cap space. They have to sign Mahones and Chris Jones. Is Kelce going to want to get more money too?

    The Texans need a RB.

    Duke Johnson is not the answer and Hyde is stop gap. JJ Watt is out every season. Houston needs another DE. That defense just gave up 51 points. Houston is screwed.

    So... your argument is that they shouldn't have traded a 1st rounder for a young All Pro caliber left tackle because they could've used that 1st on a running back? That's a... take, I guess.

    Maybe. You have to take into consideration the years that you'll get from a rookie contract that were already used on the traded player. Seems like a pretty fair trade to me in the abstract (i.e. before we know who the Dolphins pick).

    It’s fair to wonder if the Chiefs window is this year and maybe next.

    It’ll be tough to keep it all together, and who knows how long Andy wants to coach.

    Yes thats my opinion db.

    RB and DE.are bigger needs with a 26th ranked defense.

    Chiefs window is open as long as Patrick Mahomes plays for them. Great quarterbacks are always in it - Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Wilson, etc have all been contenders with completely different supporting casts.

    Good thing they have an all-world defensive end who didn't play last season returning next year, I guess.

    Fans and GMs alike get attached to the mystique of draft picks. The likelihood is the Dolphins won't hit on either of the picks they got for Fitzpatrick and Tunsil, two extremely talented young players. The only competing calculus is the belief that they'd lose both guys for nothing because they didn't want to play on a rebuilding garbage heap.

    Miami has Houston's 1st and 2nd round picks NEXT year as well. So, there's that as well.

    Hyde’s fine. He was 13th in rushing yards last year and averaged 4.4 ypc.

    If they draft an RB it definitely shouldn’t be in the first round. Maybe take a shot in the third round. You know like we should have done instead of taking Michel.

    Some people are already throwing around that Mahimes is a great QB after 2 post season wins and no Lombards.

    It remains to be seen how great Mahomes is without Kelce. Mahomes has been shut down at times this season and I question just how durable he is. Already missed games with the knee and he always seems to have ankle problems.

    A simplistic view of Hyde.

    Hyde will be 30 next September. This past season more than 33% of his rushing yards came in 3 games vs 2 of the worst rush defenses in 2019.

    31st Jax - 90 yards
    31st Jax - 160 yards
    29th KC - 116 Yards
    366 yards

    The last 4 games of Texans season the dude faded big time.

    Tam 17 att - 27 yds
    Tenn 4 att - 13 yds
    Buff 16 att - 48 yds
    KC 13 att - 44 yds
    50 att - 122 yds = 2.4 yac

    Good luck with Hyde.

    I think last year was kc best team (mahomes on fire and had hunt).
    They'll need to open cap space for kelce and I think Watkins may be the first to go. Makes sense to keep the core of the offense together (mahomes, hill, kelce)

    If I’m Miami, I dig for every little detail on the QB’s I can find. If you fall in love with Burrow, you use those picks to move on up and take ‘em. They have all this ammunition to move up and down the board however they see fit if they like a different guy at QB, but this year is the year to get ‘em. Sit him behind a guy like Fitzpatrick, let him learn what he can, and ease him in whenever he is ready. Do it right, they can have a great mix of young and veteran players that fit their system in 2 years. It never really seems to work out for the Browns though.

    Speaking of the Browns. Now that they once again have a new system coming into place, do any of you see any possible players you like that might be available for trade?

    The Bengals aren't passing on Burrow.
