Drafting 2 guards in the first 3 picks is straight up awful. The guard position is one of the least important positions on the football field. Trading a top 10 corner for a rookie Guard is a terrible value. Also, Chance would be the first guard taken in the top 10 in over a decade. The Guard position is not that valuable. Our offensive line isn't the Cardinals. We have 2 all-pro caliber offensive lineman at Center and LT. This draft also doesn't cover our most glaring need, a pass rusher, in a pass rusher heavy draft in the first round. Taylor in the 2nd round is a legit reach as well. Randle, Lacy, Bernard, are much better talents, and Bernard and Randle fit our system to a T. This draft class is very RB heavy in the mid rounds, reaching on a 2nd rounder is a terrible pick.
I hate this mock with a passion.
- Oh and, because I already know you're going to combat my argument by saying we'd have an elite offensive line. We'd tie up a ton of money at the offensive line, that we simply cannot do. Also, even if both picks panned out, we'd have an elite offensive line, terrible QB play, mediocre RB's, with a mediocre defense. That's another 5-11 team. Good work.
