With the smoke of “Will Burrow want to play in Cincy” subsided, for now, the Bengals get an Ohio kid, who played at Ohio State before setting records and winning a national title for LSU. If the smoke rises again, it will be interesting to see what Cincinnati does with the pick.
Speaking of smoke, one of the discussions at the combine was if the Redskins were entertaining the idea of taking a quarterback at No. 2 and moving on from Dwayne Haskins after just one season. The discussion is likely about the front office doing its due diligence to gage what type package they could get from, say the Dolphins, to move down three spots. At the end of the day, I say the ‘Skins stay put and take Young to make a Nick Bosa-like impact for their defense.
Speaking of smoke and trades, here is the first in the mock draft. The Dolphins give up picks Nos. 5, 26, and a 2021 2nd rounder to move up two spots. Medicals still are a concern until we see him move around. Here’s hoping he is well and the Dolphins make the move to grab him.
For the Giants, and Dave Gettleman, it’s what flavor he prefers for the offensive line. Becton like another option, Tristan Wirfs, had a spectacular combine. Will Gettleman prefer either of those, or will he maybe take Isaiah Simmons and add a swiss army knife to his defense in NYC?
For the Lions, this is a dream, the opportunity to move back and still get a top player at a premium position. Either Okudah, Simmons, or even a tackle such as Wirfs with additional capital in tow would be ideal for the Lions.
