I’m still salivating over this draft. This roster in honesty.

Yea teams are in the spot all the time 

Yea, but not at the same time they have other big roster vacancies.

 

The good news, not mentioned, is that the team should have in the neighborhood of 65M in cap space.  The bad news is that AAS could take a major hit to her pocketbook.

They don't?

Any team having to give a ransom for a QB is going to feel it.  Basically you do get the benefit of having some CAP space to use in FA to fill some gaps (rookie QBs are cheap).  What did the Rams give us to get Goff?  Did they have a great roster when they did that?  They had a few good players (like Donald) but also had plenty of holes.  They just systematically filled holes, drafted well and improved the roster over a few years. 

 

Now what are our big roster vacancies?  Seriously if we drafted a stud rookie QB I wouldn't care if we had another pick in the whole draft.  QB has become one of our only gaps.

There is also another scenario that seems possible.  What if the team's record is about like last year, maybe a little better.  They are drafting in about  the same spot and for whatever reason they decide to move on from MM.

  

Then the team is potentially in QB hell. Their draft slot would force them to use extra picks to move up to get a quality guy.  All the while they can't afford to give up picks because they have so many other free agents to replace.

Sign a vet and draft what you can...hard to tell how the draft will fall so maybe you can get a guy just moving up a few spots.

I feel like we are already in QB hell.

I think in this division we need to keep a top notch roster and hope we can find a vet that can plug in while taking a chance on a QB in round 2 or 3.

Unless we are sitting at the top of the draft and there is a cant miss guy we aint getting a QB that will match Luck so lets beat em in every other aspect and hope it pans out.   Stay competitve.

They will get a good feel for Tannehill so at least they will know if he is a guy you may want to sign.

The worst thing that can happen is that you are the 2011 Seahawks or 2014-2015 Bills with a really good defense and run game but a subpar QB.  Decent enough to be OK and wasting the talent on the team with no chance of making a legit championship run.

 

Seattle targeted Wilson (there's a great piece by Schefter on this from a couple of years ago) and gambled that the market would have in the 3rd round.  It paid off and the team went from OK to very good/great.

Could be a pretty big pivot point for the franchise this season, 27 guys off contract at the end of this season, 9 of which could be starters in week 1.

 

Likely offensive starters Mariota/Conklin/Jones/Pamphile/Henry are among those off contract, that is a large chunk of the potential starting OL in contact years.

 

On defense Byard/Ryan/Johnson/Woodyard are among those off contract.

 

Obviously there is roster churn every year in the NFL, but on the back of 3 consecutive 9-7 seasons should things not go well this year, this current iteration of the roster could be dismantled next offseason.

 

Going to be interesting to watch how this season plays out, either the team makes the leap back into the playoffs or significant change will be coming.

 

 

This/\   This is a championship roster.  I'm not saying win the SB, but a solid serious contender 2018, 2019 and 2020.  2020 is when a limelight team(like the Titans should be) has to start making tough decisions.  The best thing about JRob building the team this fast is he has already started building the bottom with replacements.

Right now it's just a bunch of guys that are "big" and "fast" with names we like. I agree on paper it looks like a great draft but it is impossible to know what the roster is until these guys will play.

I really think there are about 5 guys that could easily go in the top 40 spots.  It all depends on who they like but there's a good chance someone they like will fall or that they won't have to move up very far to get the guy they want.

At the very least we will retain a vet QB (Tannehill?) and get a decent shot at a rookie who could be legit.  Actually the worst thing we could do is to trade up to get a guy out of desperation and end up with another dud.

Teams fall into two categories in the NFL: teams with a franchise QB and those looking for one.
