As much as I love Brees, considering his age, if we were to pick really early in the draft and are able to get a QB worthy of a top 5 pick then we should take him.

Re: Building for future success

I am still watching Peat. If the move to ROT is not going to happen in 2017 I have to put RT as priority top FA signing.

Draft looks deep at OG, very deep as a matter of fact. Many OT will be moving to OG at the pro level IMO. Getting a solid shot at a starter might be had as deep as 4? maybe round 5?

DE look pretty good early. After that it tappers off but holds pretty good. FA SDE might be on the list

DT? Or NT? looks thin in the draft. Run stuffer FA might be on the list.

Nice thing about FA as run stuffer, SDE and ROT is they are cheaper to sign than the glamor players. Might be able to add all three with pocket change left over.

CB and S are looking pretty good in the draft

Peat has actually graded well thus far.

Yep, go back to value free agents to fill holes, and learn to trade down.

Also it sounds easy but few teams are good at it... Pick a system, stick to it, and acquire players that specifically fit what you want to do like the Patriots and Steelers do.

The patriots normally have around 10 draft picks per year, we are lucky if we have half of that. No wonder a bunch of ours are swing and misses with such limited picks.

Peat looks like a first round miss. He's a LT who needs work on his pro game. We have to get in another RT as well as two guards. Besides that the O-line looks pretty good.

Re: Building for future success

One site has us taking Kizer from ND. After yesterday's lose to NC State he'll be lucky to get picked in the 2nd. Foster from Clemson will be the 1st QB off the board and we won't be close to getting him. We need to take a left tackle with our 1st pick, trade up into the 1st again for the best DE and in the second the best CB available. We need to trade for Trevor Seiman from the Broncos. Paxton Lynch will be the starter there next year. Trevor has done great the 1st 4 games of the season and with at least a year or 2 under Drew he will be a killer for years to come.

We will probably draft middle of the road again. We have all of our picks except round 5 that we traded to the Redskins.

If we draft a QB it will be:

Round 2
Chad Kelly. Ole Miss
Round 3 or 4
Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina
Luke Falk, Washington State
Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State
Davis Webb, California

Round 3 or 4, 6 and 7 should all be on defensive players and I vote CB's.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.
