So I was thinking about the quarterback needy teams in the beginning draft. The talking heads on tv tell me that they might pass on QB in the 1st round and either indulge in the 2nd or trade back late into the 1st round.
I decided to give quarterbacks out to other teams in the 1st and see what things would look like.
Houston - Clowney
Jags- Kahlil Mack
Browns- Sammy Watkins
Raiders - Jake Matthews
^^^All teams that could benefit from a QB but probably won't. Unless they do and make me look like a jackass,
Now is where I make some bold predictions.
Vikings - Johnny Manziel (If this happens I expect their offense to take off this year with RG3 type hype.)
Titans - Teddy Bridgewater (Titans pick the most pro ready cause they're tired of looking at Jake Lockers face)
Giants - Blake Bortles (This one is the craziest but what if Eli never really gets it back. They have to be thinking that in the back of their minds in NY)
Cardinals - Derek Carr (Cardinals get lucky and still land the guy they were hoping for)
Browns at 26 - AJ McCarron (Cause they want a guys who's ready to win if you surround him with good talent like he was at Alabama. i.e. Josh Gordon and Sammy Watkins and the interesting case of Ben Tate.)
Round 2 - And the early passers are left withhhh.
Houston - Jimmy Garappolo (Not the guy they wanted but could learn from Fitzpatrick and progress into a starter)
Jags - Aaron Murray (Another guy who was a big winner in college might be able to inspire some Jaguar fans to buy a QB jersey)
Raiders - Zach Mettenberger (Raiders suppress their tears while chanting the mantra: "Shaub is our man. Shaub is our man".)
Bonus Pick. Rams - Tom Savage (Cause I just want a Rams jersey that says Savage on it.)
I dunno. It wouldn't ever happen, like, at all. But it was fun to think about. Its officially Thursday. 1 week people!!!
