Especially given the high miss factor on them. I feel like you should draft a QB and a WR in every draft because it's very difficult to hit on a true star based on college performance.

And they're volatile. Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham were considered cornerstone players as recently as 3 years ago. Now they're complimentary pieces and not even top 3 targets on their respective teams if not for injury.

Not sure if it’s Heineken figuring his shit out or what but D. Carter is emerging as a legitimate threat at wr. At minimum he’s a very solid #3 imo and should be locked down for a few seasons.

Spending a 1st on a QB and following it with a WR then OL with the 2nd & 3rd would be the best bet going forward in April.

Anyone else see the difference in the eyes of Heinicke over the past two games? Less wide eyed and more like a guy who’s been doing this for years.

Said it in chat. I'll be the first to say, I think Heinicke should be our unquestioned starter for the forseeable future. Yeah, I know. Doesn't have an NFL starter. Isn't an NFL starter. Will never be an NFL starter. Except that some guys defy the norm and just have 'it'. I think he's that player.

Build this team and ride with Heinicke 100%.

And just to state it as emphatically as I can, we need a franchise QB - turns out he is already on this roster.

Heiny will probably have to tap a few minds to get some more insight to the position. Brees in particular.

But is he better than nearly every other backup in the league? Yes. He's also better than the likes of Daniel Jones, Jared Goff, etc.

I’m still going with…

1. QB
2. WR
3. OL

Then

4. RB
5. OL or TE
6. CB/S
7. CB/S

Basically the first 4 rounds should go to the offense while filling defense needs in FA, imho

Some of you guys break down the mechanics far better than I, but I’m digging Carson Strong with one of our picks. He’s also got a 6’6” TE who’s got hands & a good wr in # 7. Hell we could get 1 of them at least, both had like 11 td’s a piece.

There have been some great players picked at #11.

Ben Roethlisberger
JJ Watt
Michael Irving (yeah, I know)
Dante Culpepper
Dwight Freeny
Paul Warfield
Frank Gifford

And...

Wilber Marshall

The Washington Foot Team has never picked at #11 before this year.

(for those curious, WFT has also never picked at 14, 21, 23, 24, 27, and 29)

Watching a Matt Corral vid and seen this catch from the ole miss #13 at the 0:53 second mark, pretty nice catch. This team needs that type of a WR/TE for the new guy.

Edit: He’s a TE…and hard pass on Corral. Watched vids of him against Alabama & Tennessee, going public with my no

Is that including trades too or as is?

I THINK he's asking if we ever held those draft positions and traded out of them, or if we've actually NEVER held those particular draft positions.
Yep, basically was wondering if they’ve ever had those positions and opted out with a trade.
