Trade it and collect more picks !

No need to draft players (Davenport, Turner & jury still out on Penning) no one has heard of, only to see them often injured and/or missing substantial time.

Smash, is Broderick Jones the type to shift in to guard? I don't really watch college ball so I'm not familiar with the players. I can see depth at tackle being a need, but in the 1st?

The simulator is heavy on trading down. I tend to agree we need to amass way more picks by trading down.

I have no clue. I just lazily used the simulator to play.

A trade down isn't in Loomis' vocabulary. He has literally never traded down in his whole career. I believe I read last year that he had traded up 25 times and never traded down. I can't see him starting now. As he has said himself, the front office philosophy has always been "quality over quantity." I just can't see them shifting gears away from that. But, I guess there can always be a first time.

Who knows?

Re: 2023 Mock Draft Simulator

29. B.J. Ojulari - EDGE, LSU: We may lose Davenport in free agency and Cam Jordan is getting both expensive and long in the tooth. This gives us a good, young EDGE rusher and adds speed and athleticism to the D-Line.

42. Hendon Hooker - QB, Tennessee: This is my guy. I pray he's there. I actually wouldn't be mad if we took him at the end of the 1st just to make sure we get him. He has all the tools. Love this kid.

71. Tank Bigsby - RB, Auburn: This is a well-built RB. We need more depth there. I think Tank is a steal.

98. Rick Stromburg - C, Arkansas: A smart kid that can easily be moved to Guard.

148. Olusegun Oluwatimi - C, Michigan: Another guy that can be moved to guard and provide depth in the interior offensive line.

168. Tykee Smith - Safety, Georgia: Marcus Maye didn't go as planned. We need a young safety to come in and compete.

229. Marshon Ford - TE, Louisville

260. Justin Eboigbe - DT, Alabama
