I'm guessing CAR is going for AR the closest QB to Cam Newton they will ever get.
Of course with no picks to add talent to the team could be scary. That 2024 1 should be very valuable for CHI.

Chicago will get a premium non-QB talent at 9, and that’s a big haul otherwise. Love grabbing DJ Moore and a second rather than a 2025 first or something.

I'm not a Fields believer at all but it's a good trade for Chicago.
I think it’s a great trade for them. DJ Moore is a stud. Could easily get a slider at 9. And they get 61, a likely high pick next year, and a good 2025 pick. Hell of a job by Poles.

The Texans were not gonna trade out of #1, and who knows if they’ll end up losing out on their preferred QB? We have no idea how Houston and Carolina will ultimately rate Stroud and Young. If this draft had a clear cut #1 prospect like Luck, Burrow, or Lawrence at the top, then it would be a disaster, but it doesn’t.

Really nice move for Chicago. What?

Moore not only fills a huge need at WR, but it also gives them more leverage in their Claypool negotiations. Plus, Moore’s cap numbers decline over the next 3 seasons, meaning he fits well with all the cap space the Bears have this season and compliments contracts that increase over the next 2 seasons.

A little disappointed that they dropped to 9 and likely missed out on one of the top edges (Anderson or Wilson) or Carter (pending his legal and maturity problems). But they can go a lot of different ways at 9, including waiting to see if either edge drops.

Wouldn’t be shocked to see them trade back again, if only a few spots, to give them ammo to navigate the board. With such a shallow offensive tackle class, getting positioned to nab a high ceiling tackle is a priority. .

#61 could also result in a productive edge, too, given the depth in this class.

Two firsts next year, one that’s possibly top-10? Oh man.

Why would a completely new ownership, general manager and coaching staff want Cam 2.0? Just because it's Carolina?

Would imagine it isn’t Richardson because they probably could have made a move with someone else inside the top 5 at a reduced cost to get him.

Stroud or Young would make the most sense.

They've essentially given themselves Fields insurance here. If he sucks next year, they'll have (likely) two high picks in a good 2024 QB class. Not a lot to dislike with the move. They will also have good options at Edge and OT at 9. Or they could go WR with JSN.

The south - both the NFC and AFC, are riddled with incompetent franchises. That #1 better be a top 10 QB in the league for this move to make any sense.

I was hoping Seattle would get Woods cheap. Can't believe he got that much given his recent track record and injury history. But, like Seels says above, the Souths are clueless.

Giving that up to get CJ Stroud seems a little crazy to me. I like him and think he has the best chance out of his peers in this draft of providing competent QB play early, but don't see the upside there to justify him going first overall. Bryce Young has the instincts and play making ability that could translate into a guy that carries a very good NFL offense, Stroud to me is Jared Goff. I guess you could buy that the Georgia game is who he really is and Ohio State was pulling back on him displaying his athleticism and off script skills, but still. This is a ceiling league to me now at that position and Stroud isn't Joe Burrow with his processing.

That I find hard to believe. I think they've fixated on one of the QBs and also were convinced that Houston would have taken him had they not moved up.
Probably, though slightly more believable moving up from 9 since they were likely not getting a QB and now they can try to squeeze HOU if they really do like 2 QBs

How can you tell that Stroud can’t process at thst level? Honestly his first read was open so often I’m not sure you could judge

Would it be an "inverse" flex? Like if the game involves competitive teams the networks can pull it out to Sunday?

Mostly kidding.

Why? The refs already don’t call infractions unless blatant. What is really needed is a horn like the NBA. If it sounds before the snap, delay of game. Why can’t the NFL do this?

I don't think this proposal is designed to address delay of game infractions, I think it's designed to allow for under one second left in a half/game scenarios. So Dak Prescott scrambles to the Niners 30 yard line and spikes the ball with 0.3 seconds left instead of the clock just showing 0. One more play for Dallas as opposed to end of the game.

Game clock not play clock. Wouldn't have an effect on things like delay of game.

This explanation doesn't make sense to me. When a clock flips to zero, it's literally zero - never 0.3s - so nobody is getting robbed of any time with the current clocks.

In the NBA, tenths of seconds matter because once the horn blows, play is dead, and it takes a certain amount of time to perform physical actions, like catch and shoot a ball. But in the NFL, a live play keeps running after the clock stops, so as long as it's not zero, it shouldn't matter how much time is left.

Yeah. Makes sense in Basketball because you need to get the shot off before clock reaches zero. Inbounding with 1 second vs .3 seconds is a big difference. That doesn't matter in football once you snap it. Play doesn't stop when clock goes to zero.

Yes, see my edit. We are in full agreement.

If refs need to take time to figure out of it is 7.9 or 7.6 seconds left, that can be another commercial break.
