We're likely picking top 10.
Pickett could go as late as 15. I'll be very surprised if Pickett is gone before we're on the clock. He's very likely there without giving up anything, if thats the guy you want.
IMHO I'm not giving up future assets for any of the QBs in this draft. Call me crazy but mocks i've seen as recently as 2 days ago dont have Pickett with a first round grade, he's only going in the first because of how baron the QB landscape is in this years draft.
I'm as heart broken as anyone, and A LOT of our problems can be solved (well... mitigated) with an elite QB.. but I don't know if THAT guy is in this draft. It's one thing to take Pickett at 9 overall and miss... it's even more devestating to give up assets to move up and miss.
The Giants have come out publicly over the last 48 hours and said they're sticking with Judge and Jones. That's not to say they dont go back on that if the 'right' guy is there on draft day, but highly unlikely they take a 1st roung QB if they want to believe that. The Eagles and the Jets have the most draft capital and it's not even close... unlikely either one of them takes a QB, or moves up for one, either. Detroit and Carolina are likely the two teams we have to watch, and I could see both passing on him at 6 and 7.
More and more people are mocking him to Carolina at 7, I've even seen speculation Denver trades up INTO 7 to take him... so if you can broker a deal to much up to 6, he'll be there, but it'll probably cost you next years 1st round pick, in additon to this years for a swap.
