The first mail bag after the largest trade of vultures in five years! Let’s move on to the questions …

As for what consensus between scouts and people in the league might be, I assume Jalen Hurts would be connected to a second or third degree signal if he was in the 2021 draft.
I would say the first class will be Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance. Mac Jones might have to be level one, but I’d put him on level two all by himself. My opinion is that people might consider Hurts to be closer to Kyle Trask (not in playstyle, but in terms of projection) in a separate third group.
How can I arrange them myself?
Lawrence will be my QB1 and I’ll be comfortable playing second place. For me, they are at the first level. I was throwing Hurts in the second division with Wilson and Lance. Call it an affirmation bias if you want to get the biggest sore guy on this site, but this guy has excelled at two of the nation’s best shows this century and has better mobility than both Wilson and Lance (although that says more about Hurts than The other is men, who are also great athletes).
Lance is the most used man in the group, but I’m concerned about FCS’s rival leap, which may also be a concern for Wilson’s upcoming from BYU.
It’s a great class, but Hurts will at least be an above average player in this league in and we’ve already seen his abilities at NFL level.
@ DKane1012: With Denver unlikely to be looking for a pass catcher, would you see trading a 12, 84, and possibly a sixth (for sweetening the bet) should one of the Big Four start to fall? Especially if Kyle Bates is jumping ahead of Dallas.
I assume the “Big Four” are Kyle Bates, Devonta Smith, Jailin Waddle, and Jamar Chase. I love that this question has been asked which is worth thinking about, but LOL at the idea of being sixth is the locator that guides the metrics for a team out of the top ten.
If they really liked any of these guys, they’d probably have stayed at 1-6. Obviously, the main draw for the bird trade was the first round pick in the future which gives the team more choice to move forward, but you have to deal with 2021 before it gets to 2022. If they feel Bates was a global player they are so coveted, they don’t do the trade.
If anything, then I think a second trade down is more likely than trading up. Given the way vultures were historically constructed through trenches, it appears more likely that they would move down and pick up someone like Gregory Russo or Aziz Ogulari in their late teens rather than jumping back into the top ten.

Vikings?!? Minnesota is the team that Rosman has benefited the most from. How quickly did we forget Vikes as they do the scare trade for Sam Bradford this Labor Day weekend 2016. The deal put Carson Wentz’s development wheel into practice, as he became the initiator as a rookie and ran an MVP campaign in 2017.
Besides what that means for Wentz, the Eagles got a pick in the first round they used with Derek Barnett, who reclaimed a bump in the biggest play in Philadelphia sports history, and a fourth turn pick over Josh Sweet, who slowly turns into an inferno of speeding traffic.
Oh, yeah, before I forget: Team Howie wears Minnesota 38-7 on Jan 21, 2018.
Eagles don’t win Energy If not, Rosman invades Minnesota.
Embed a Tweet: With 11 selections, how many beginners should the Eagles bring for this season?
I’m watching this from the perspective of the guys who are going to be beginners into next season. You have to be happy to have instant starters, be happy if you get three, and somewhat disappointed if you end up becoming a single player. If it’s zero, get your torches and your wand ready for the walk in NovaCare.
If their first round selection isn’t a start to Day One, it’s a disaster. This will be the second time in three years that this scenario will be implemented. The winning organizations don’t have these types of problems. You’d assume another selection of top 40 had to start, right? I’m not saying this guy needs to be a superstar or a professional or whatever, but he has to get stuck in the starting point in a team that lacks talent like the Eagles.
They have two selections of the third round. You don’t usually have to rely on these people to be rookies right away, but again, they have loopholes all over the list, and if they reach for a legitimate player, it makes sense that they are an influential contributor as a beginner.
