Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2020


Greetings to everyone in BGO land. The offseason is here and today begins a process of looking at pending Free Agents, Mock Drafts, OTAs, Mini Camps, Training Camp, Roster Predictions, and any significant offseason news. Hello to everyone on social media. You are our honored guests, so sit back and enjoy.

Today we are posting key dates to know during this offseason. On Monday we will post the first look at free agency. Later next week we will post the first offseason mock of 2020.

We consulted with the BBQ lawyers and they advised us to post all of these updates ASAP. We look forward to all of your comments this offseason.

Feel free to use this offseason guide on key dates as a reference. We'll edit it if the date changes or if there are any key additions/subtractions.

Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

So I guess the clarification is, that while O'Connell, Kaczor, and Jordan are not officially hired, they simply are not officially fired like the rest of the guys.
They're somewhere in limbo.

So a far off what if here, but, what if the bungles or someone else jumps up to #1 and grabs Young?

Hopefully we could trade back and fill immediate needs. Staying put at #2 though I think we'd have to take a good look at Jeudy

Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

I don't think it's an impossibility. Rivera didn't draft Haskins. If the Bengals don't go QB, and Rivera thinks Burrow is the next great QB, better hold on to your hat.

Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

If Burrow is available you take him.

He's ready to play in the NFL without a huge lead up. Here I think he would be starting in training camp.

He has special written all over him.

For that reason, I don't see any way that Cincy passes on him, and pin their hopes on Ryan Finley

But it's Cincy! 😆😆😆

These guys are like Cleveland, you never know what is going to happen.

Remember when Haslem decided to pick Manziel because of a run in with a homeless guy downtown 🤪🤪🤪

Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

People need to be careful about labeling Burrow, Young, or Judge as being the next best thing.

I can recall a recent edge from Ohio St. that was a can't miss prospect - Vernon Gholston. Or how about Tony Mandarich? Heath Shuler? Charles Rogers? Ryan Leaf? Brian Bosworth? Johnny Manziel?

Be careful what you wish for. It could actually come true and put a major hurt on your favorite team.

Re: Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions,

Shuler and Manziel lacked the physical skills and size to be franchise qbs in the NFL. The latter also had drug problems.

But I didn't see these guys or some of the other boom/bust qbs having Burrows skill set that seems to translate to the next level.

He has an NFL profile.
