    Sweat and Murphy from UT.

    Smith and Wingo from LSU

    Ohio St. has a guy

    Georgia has Stackhouse.

    There are a few out there.

    I'm hoping they draft a guy and sign a vet IDL in FA.

    I guess this is the proper thread to say that Caleb Williams is getting his ass kicked in, yet again against a real defense, tonight.

    Carry on.

    I'm a longtime Oregon fan and have been looking forward to this beatdown all season.

    That said, this game isn't Caleb's fault. USC's O-line is way overmatched tonight and Oregon's DBs are playing really good. I wish there was more of this a few weeks ago against UW to help overcome Dan Lanning's penchant for gambling and failing.

    It may not be his fault, alone, USC defense being laughable is a different thing, as is Lincoln's recruiting.

    You can't say he doesn't have an offense, and offensive players, you could also say that he hasn't beaten anybody worth a **** since Notre Dame 12 months ago.

    Oh, and by the way, **** everything about Oregon and Nike and your overseas child slaves.

    You must not be watching tonight. There is no "alone" to it. Caleb isn't the problem with their offense.

    If you don't like the guy, fine. He isn't my cup of tea either. That won't stop him from being the #1 pick in the draft next year for good reason. He's an incredible NFL prospect.

    Bears should take him with the Panthers pick and then see what the trade market is for Fields

    If the draft fell this way, I'm looking to either trade up for Newton or picking Benson

    Improve the offense through the draft

    Spend our cap space on defensive studs (Brian Burns, etc.)

    2024 Texans will be sb contenders

    I’d rather see them go after Chris Jones. $35 million per year and line him up next to Anderson.

    Or outside on the other end next to Rankins and a drafted Sweat.

    1. Christian Wilkins
    2. Chris Jones

    That’s a little high; just beat Aaron Donald’s 3 yr 95 million with 65 guaranteed. Then contract comes off the books around when you need to pay Stroud.

    I would sign Jones but he's probably going to re-sign with the Chiefs. So give me Wilkins.

    Imagine this

    Signing Wilkins trading up a bit to draft Verse, re-signing Rankins and drafting the LB out of A&M. In the 2nd rd. That's a formidable front 7 if they re-sign Cashman also. A big fast front 7.

    Draft the best RB available in the 4th and re-sign Singletary or sign Dillon.

    They need to also sign Higgins or Trade for Davante or something. We need a #1. Nico is a great 2, Dell is a lethal slot, need a #1 to take the attention of the best DB. Stroud will still spread it around.

    Hopefully one of the receivers fall to the Browns pick (really need them to miss playoffs):

    MHJr
    Bowers
    Nabers
    Coleman
    Odunze
    Egbuka

    Sign Wilkins and one of the DEs (e.g. Josh Allen) in free agency.

    Praying and looking forward to MHjr or Bowers falling to the 20s.

    I'm hoping they draft a WR in this deep WR class, a long with a RB.

    I know this is a draft thread, but who else besides me is extremely excited to watch the caliber of free agents that were able to sign increased drastically in one off season. Let's hope! Nick is willing to deal out more than a one or two-year deal this time.
