    I expect a run on WR at the end of the 1st round that could push some impactful defensive players down to 40.

    DT at 2nd round would be a waste. Dunn'ie should step into that role perfectly.

    Blacklock is being touted as a guy that can play multiple positions along the DL. He'd be a solid pick but we need someone with more pass rush potential IMO. Dunn and Blackson combining for 1 sack last season is woefully pathetic.

    Let's think about what position players most influence the game. I think in order: QB, Pass Rusher, LT, WR, CB, RB, TE, S, Interior OL, LB, Special Teams Stud.

    If that's true, then a Pass Rusher should be the target, though you could argue that Watt is still that guy and Mercilus should be that guy and Charles Omenihu and Jacob Martin could be that guy.

    We've got a pretty good team committee for most other positions, not stars but pretty solid with some back-ups. We did show a glaring weakness in pass coverage, but with the talent assembled I don't really know why. Maybe it was pass rush issue.

    The 40th pick is just 8 down from the top 32 first rounders so you should be able to get no worse than the second rated player at some position other than QB, WR, LT, and Pass
    Rusher. You might have a shot at the #1 rated guard.

    It wouldn't be a sexy pick but you could maybe get better play than Fulton for draftee money and cut him to save some. (I am a terrible evaluator of interior line play and don't really understand Fulton's general perceived weakness)

    Bob has just traded 2023/2024 1st round picks, 2023 2nd round pick and TORO for the dog.

    No, BoB just traded for Toro's more expensive and often-injured kennel-mate Ruff...

    If Zach Baun isn't there at 40, we should trade down and get some extra picks. Ideally we trade down for an extra 4th and take Terrell Lewis and then Davon Hamilton with the extra pick.

    Ya the newest mocks definitely aren’t as exciting without the prospect of grabbing a good prospect at 57. The fifty picks between the 2nd and 3rd round will seem like eternity.

    I hope we have a talent at edge to go for at 40

    I think OB might go best available. If swift Is there he almost has to jump on him.

    Can’t say I’d be mad at that pick but can you imagine draft day trades that would send Nuk for two RBs, then sending our 3rd rounder for another. Essentially that’s what BoB would’ve done if that’s the pick.

    The prospect of pairing Watson with a “potentially” elite back would be interesting though.

    I think this is what will happen if there is a run on positional players that push some real good players down to where we'll be picking in the second round. Considering who our coach/GM is, I can definitely see BO'B drafting the 8th rated WR that he had graded as the 1st clear cut WR smh.

    Indeed very interesting. Speed all over at wideout and a dual threat like Swift at rb would be fun to watch

    I hope we don't draft Swift at #40.
    I'm higher on Edwards-Helaire, Taylor, and Akers.
    But we can't afford a rb that high anyway.
    Would love Dillon in rd4 like Pat's mock above has (Coulter in rd7 too).

    At #40 I would like to see us take BPA at a need position.
    Either pass rusher, db or wr.
    Should be a really highly rated player at one of those positions to fall to us.
