He actually looked pretty bad during most of senior bowl week. 

Of all the QB prospects projected to go high in this draft, Jones is the one who impresses me the least.  There are things to like about Murray, Lock, Grier, and Haskins.  Hell, even some of the later round guys are intriguing.  

Jones just screams not very good to me.

The question about JJAW has always been his speed.  Then he didn't run at the combine.  Then at his pro-day on 4/4/19 he ran a 4.48 and put that question to rest.  Internet mocks that have him going in the 3rd, are behind the times, imo.

I wouldn't be shocked if the Pats took JJAW in the 1st. It may be a tad early but who cares. He has great size, and is as good on contested balls as any WR thats come out in a long time. He's very smart, interned with Condy Rice. And like you said, he answered the only question there was with his pro day 40. I don't think he'll be there for our 2nd pick.

I would be surprised if they don't take a TE

If your J rob, and the pats come calling at 19 for hockenson, I wonder if the titans can land their 1st and 3rd?🤔

 

If so do you take it?

No. It would have to be their 1st and earliest 2nd or their first next year

Yup.  I think you're right.  Instant plug and play, lots of connections and contacts with Lindstrom, big need, shown a big investment in improving the offense, downplayed the need at Edge.  All signs point towards Lindstrom at 19 imo.  

What DJ said about Lindstrom

 

"Just put him on the Patriots right now. Just get it over with."

 

 

I agree that IF he's there, he's definitely in play in 19. A few months ago I would've said DL, but the closer we're getting I think OL is more likely. And Lindstrom seems like the logical fit. If he's not there, then maybe a trade down could be in play. I do think the Vikes are a threat to take him at 18.

BB has never drafted a WR in the 1st round in NE. Only time he spent a 1st was the trade for Cooks who he traded a year later for a 1st back. He'd be bucking history if he took one. TE is way more likely.

@socaltitan It’s more about who will be there. If the right DL is there, I’d bet on DL being the pick. If not, it could be OL. 

I was thinking DL for awhile too, but the closer we get I'm starting to see OL being the pick. Specifically Lindstrom. He checks a lot of the boxes JR likes and there's a lot of staff connections there.

 

I get the impression JR would like to draft someone in R1 with as few red flags as possible. I also think JR would prefer someone who can start right away. That points to a guy like Lindstrom where there's a gaping hole at RG. Just think there's too many ? with a Simmons or Tillery as a R1 pick. Maybe if one of them falls like Landry last year one could be in play.

 

Right now, if I had to guess I think we go Lindstrom R1. If he's off the board, maybe a trade down or JR takes a guy like Risner. Possibly a trade up for a guy like Simmons if he's there in R2. If not, I think we could go WR round 2. With it being such a critical year for Mariota and the O, I think that's going to be JR MO. This offense really demands a speed WR, which makes me think it could be a guy like Isabella. Possibly one of the OSU WR like Campbell or McLaurin. There's staff connections there as well.

Also important to remember after this year Casey could be the only starting IDL that returns, Johnson's contract is up and there is a good chance Jones gets cut.

For weeks it was Hokenson then it was Bradbury or bust now Lindstrom is the flavor if the week. The guys guessing defensive players have pretty much stuck to their guns the most part.

Yeah numbers wise, we have very little on the IDL. Someone mentioned the alarming lack of depth there a few pages ago.  And this is why I can't see them spending R1 and R2 picks on offense.

Nothing has changed for me since December, would take Hockenson if he is there, if not Ford/Lindstrom.

 

I just get the feeling JRob is going IDL round 1 due to the amount of work he has done on the round 3 IOL guys.

Rd 2 is interesting as well, depending on which "run" there is on certain positions.  I think they would like a WR but they are drafting in a spot where all the Round 2 wideouts could get taken before their pick comes up
