The Chiefs want to win before they pay Mahomes. They're getting the best pass rusher they can for the 29th pick really.

Dee Ford didn't fit their 4-3. Clark is a better fit.

It has cost them to 'swap players', but it always does.

They are certainly a better team in 2019 than they were this morning, and more than likely better than they would've been if they selected a rookie at 29.

I was just playing around with 'predict the pick', and the thought occurred to me....

Would the Raiders take TJ Hockenson at 4?

They have a need.

It's Mayock's first ever pick as a GM. Could he see Hockenson as a 'can't miss' pick? A pick that he can 'hang his GM hat on'?

My gut feeling is no. If they valued TE that much they would have kept Cook

Maybe that's why they let Cook go? They knew they could get an upgrade?

Possibly. I think Irv Smith Jr would be more likely given they have 3 picks in his expected range.

I have a hard time believing the Raiders don't go best pass rusher available either Edge or Interior at 4

You never know with us but I'm thinking no - he isn't the greatest Tight End ever and he'd have to be to go at #4.

I see where people are coming from with TE. Is Josh Allen nailed on as a top 3 pick?

Crossing over from another thread too with Marshawn Lynch's retirement and the Josh Jacobs talk. I don't think Jacobs makes it to #24.

I'm expecting us to move around the board a bit on the night. With 3 first rounders we have the capital to do it. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if we packaged 24 and/or 27 to move up for a player we really want.

so the rumour is that the worst owner in the league (its so obvious i dont think it should take anyone more than 1 guess) has played the its mine team card and taken over the 1st round for his team.
