Waiting in round 3, 4 ... meh. Not much in this 2020 QB class. It's time to draft a QB in the earlier rounds and develop him.
Believe you get the most value you can per round...

That being said, I give you my favorite quarterback not named Joe Burreaux...


In my dream/best case scenario, we trade back into the beginning of the second round, Jalen Reagor is still there, we pick up another Day 2 pick to get a CB2 and a LG, then we start Day 4 with Gordon...

"Air Raid" offense.

Good size, quick release & has thrown a gazillion TD's ... how will that translate to the next level though?

As for Jalen R ... if this kid runs a 4.35 (which I believe he will) or better, forget it .. he's gone in the 1st round. Speed is the name of the game.

Anthony Gordon - QB WSU

** JP's sleeper pick of the draft ... is he the best QB in the draft no one is talking about?? ...

Starting around :57 ... that was a rainbow over the top. Nice touch on the ball.

The QB you SHOULD be Talking About Ÿ” Anthony Gordon WSU Highlights - YouTube
Go look at his Senior Bowl film, practice notes, scouting reviews...

True, he was a backup till his Senior Year, but he was backup to now Jax Jags QB Gardner Minshew...

Gordon is definitely in the same style of Minshew, Mahomes, Favre...

Jauan Jennings - WR Tennessee

He showed good ability at the Senior bowl, big kid and he plays with that "dawg" mentality. We need more of those not named MT.

He'll be there late .. day 4, 5. Could be worth a look.

You know, we've busted often with WRs from Tennessee, don't you?

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: Saints Prospects

Let's assume Eli Apple walks in 2020 & we retain Janoris ... ??

IMO the secondary needs more young dawgs opposite Lattimore & I'm not sold on Marcus Williams.

Xavier McKinney - CB/S Alabama

Versatile (special teams/safety/corner), he doesn't guess, is instinctive & an above average open field tackler in space like CGJ.

If, Reagor is gone? Yes, I'd love the pick if he fell to us. But if you get into all the scouting reports, he's more of a Minkah Fitzpatrick, a Strong Safety or Heavy Nickel Safety...

And here's the thing for me, prioritizing contract extensions:

Marshon Lattimore
Marcus Williams
Vonn Bell
Rework Janoris Jenkins
Eli Apple

Gardner as the SS, allows Vonn Bell to walk, but then you turn around and take McKinney? And if you re-sign Bell, why take McKinney? And if Bell is re-signed, let Mr. Marcus walk, wouldn't you just move Gardner to FS?

That's the conundrum with taking McKinney in the first...

However taking McKinney, and assuming he's the goods, does allow you cap relief and you get compensatory picks for Bell and/or Mr. Marcus...
