So you are telling me I did not start a QB run? 😒
A tale of my draft thus far...
I did not like being near the top of the draft because I struggled with rankings beyond Kelce and Jonathan Taylor. My #5 pick was a struggle, even with a pick that surprised me in the top four. When my second rounder came up, the strength available seemed to favor the RBs and I considered Jacobs, Montgomery and Gibson. When my third rounder came up all the WRs I had targeted (AJ Brown, Hopkins, Allen and Evans) were gone, but one of my RB targets remained, so I grabbed Gibson.
Heading into the 4th round with three RBs, I felt obligated to draft a WR and was high on Michael Thomas, St. Brown, Mike Williams, and Lockett. Since the first two were gone, Williams was an easy choice. For my 5th rounder, with only four QBs gone and Lockett still on the board, he was also an easy pick.
Between Lockett at pick #69, all eight of my preferred top QBs were gone. I thought most would be gone, but expected to get one of Wilson or Prescott. They were all gone, even Rodgers who I would have taken despite his arrogance and lack of weapons. So, I was left with a large tier of guys and felt like at least three and possibly four would go before my 7th rounder. Perhaps a desperate move, but went with Derek Carr, who gets a new coach and Davante Adams to target, so hopefully Carr and the Raiders offense averages more than their 22 points per game a year ago.
Picks that I valued, but despised were Wilson by Woodrow (sounds presidential) at #86 and Prescott by Bass (as his 2nd QB) at #90.
