#247: 2021 Dash To The Draft Divisional Tour (NFC South with Bill Riccette)

1. The draft arguably begins at #4 overall with the Atlanta Falcons. And they are sending mixed signals as to what their intentions are. Chris Mortensen reported that they may have their eyes on selecting Matt Ryan’s long-term replacement and the apple of new GM Terry Fontenot’s eye is believed to be Trey Lance. On the other hand, Adam Schefter reported today that the Falcons have received calls for the #4 overall pick and are open to moving down. Do you believe the Falcons best course of action is to either stay put and take a QB or trade down, with no Plan C?

2. Yesterday, the Panthers acquired QB Sam Darnold from the Jets in exchange for a sixth-rounder this year, and second and fourth-round picks in 2022. Moreover, they are also expected to pick up the fifth-year option on Darnold’s contract. Do you still see the Panthers trying to move up the board to draft a QB, or can we pretty much rule out QB in round one for Carolina?

3.  This is the first draft for the Saints in the post-Brees era. They would obviously need a miracle for a QB to fall into their laps in the first round. Given the overall strength of the rest of their roster, what should their basic plan of attack be for this draft?

4. Should the Bucs prioritize drafting players that can make an immediate impact this season or players who can turn into franchise cornerstones in 2-3 years even if they need to “redshirt” this season?
