If the Cowboys get the right player at 10, and I'm pretty sure they will, they are a lock for the 2022 Super Bowl.

I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

I know nothing about the QB from BYU but apparently he’s a Top 5 pick, even being projected by many ahead of Justin Fields which seems crazy to me.
He's athletic, silly good arm, and white. Of course everyone is talking about how he's the best QB in the class.

I think Justin Fields is sinking fast. I think he's now projected to be out of the top 10.
He should be.


Super gifted in many ways but I don't recall ever seeing him check down to a second or third receiver.

He'll be a good player in the right system but terrible anywhere else.

I want Sewell.
Lock that spot down for 10+ years
He may drop out of top 10
I would like Denver to draft him but Garret Bolles played great last year so it doesn't make sense to make one of those guys play at RT

Super athletic guy...downfield blocking and mobility is off the charts

I don't even think Lawrence is such a lock...he could turn out to be very average IMO

Loved him at Ohio State.
I don't know that his game translates to the NFL. The Buckeyes receivers were STUDS and were always open by 5 yards. You don't get those looks in the NFL.

He's staring his guy down as soon as the ball was snapped and they would still be wide ass open.

If he turns out to be a quality guy in the NFL it will be because of attributes that he hasn't had to show before. What he has shown are really good talents but if it were just about physical gifts then every 1st round pick would work out.

Hmmm, what do the Panthers see in him that I don't?

I had him down as a backup level QB, hardly worth 2nd, 4th and 6th round picks.
Change of scenery and away from the Jets toxic culture could do good

Some still see potential in him

Some teams are so fucked up that nobody could succeed there

Team sport and all

I can see what you mean, getting away from the previously shit coaching at Miami did wonders for Tannehill, but I just don't see the same talent level in Darnold.
