#254: 2021 Dash To The Draft Divisional Tour (AFC East with Jeff Barnes)

1. Barring an unprecedented last minute surprise, the Jets are heavily expected to take BYU QB Zach Wilson with the #2 overall pick. Some respected voices on Draft Twitter, however, believe the Jets are making a mistake by taking Zach Wilson over Justin Fields. Do you share that view? And if you do, for the sake of playing Devil’s Advocate, why do you think the Jets love Wilson more?

2. Speaking of Justin Fields, it may be the worst kept secret in the NFL that Bill Belichick has the hots for the Ohio State QB. It just seems inevitable to many, including myself, he will make a move up the board to either seven or eight and take him. Should these assumptions come to fruition, does Justin Fields immediately make the Patriots AFC East contenders again?

3.  The Miami Dolphins have a pretty tough decision at the sixth overall spot. As Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network reported, they are debating between Jaylen Waddle and Penei Sewell. Although the Dolphins SORELY need more playmakers and the temptation to reunite Tua Tagovailoa with one of his favorite college targets is understandable, the Dolphins offensive line isn’t in a pretty situation either, especially at tackle. Furthermore, they unloaded Ereck Flowers to Washington today and it was reported they plan to kick Robert Hunt inside to guard. And given the fact that Tua isn’t even two years removed from that freakish hip injury, the incentive to keep him upright may be higher than that to give him another weapon. What would you do if you were Chris Grier and Brian Flores?

4. When it comes to the Bills, they have their eyes on two needs early in the draft, EDGE and RB. Yesterday, Todd McShay reported that the Bills may be eyeing a trade up to the early 20’s to take a running back. And that makes sense to me given the fact most around the NFL expect the Steelers to select Alabama’s Najee Harris at 24, should he be available. In the grander scheme of things, however, I am 100% against taking a running back in the first round. But to play Devil’s Advocate, I can understand the Bills thinking here because after the first three RB’s (Harris, Travis Etienne and Javonte Williams), there’s a steep dropoff. Whereas at EDGE, it is a much deeper class and you can get someone of good quality on day two. What should the Bills top priority be in your view?
