Another Offseason Scenario

Ok this is personally my favorite scenario and from reading some of your comments some of you like this two. Ok let's start off with free agency assuming Suh doesn't resign in time.

Free agency

Chris Clemons S - A good fit for the lions who need a coverage safety although not a huge playmaker with only about 4/5 INT in his career. He is about 28 so we can still get a couple good years out of him. He is speedy running around a 4.34 40 time in his combine. Not any serious injury history that I'm aware of. IMO he would be a great pickup for about 3 years/$8-10M

Robert Ayers DE - With Young on his way out we could be in the market for a good pass rusher if we don't believe in Devin Taylor Jason Jones or Israel Idonije. We need to take pressure off our developing secondary with more QB pressure. I feel he's not the best pass rusher but I feel a upgrade from Willie. A good value for around 3years/$2.925M

Golden Tate WR - This WR group we have needs a overhaul we know that they know that. He could be a good outside but I feel we need to draft a #2 and him become a slot guy. We could sign him sort of cheap for his good production. He's got a pair of hands and I pair of legs. 4years/8.8M would be a good deal IMO at about 2.2 million a year


Round 1: With safety, defensive end, and slot wide out takin care of that eliminates a couple of possibilities such as HHCD and Pryor, Cooks, Ealy. The possibilities are khalil Mack, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Anthony Barr, Odell Beckham JR. Marqise Lee, Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan

Round 2: With us most likely taking a Wide out with our 1st pick there is a greater chance of a TE or OLB. Though I wouldn't mind a WR either. Here is a healthy list of choices: Odell Beckham JR., Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Mathews, Kyle Van Noy, Allen Robinson, Austin Safari-Jenkins, Troy Niklas, Paul Richardson, Davante Adams, Chris Borland

Round 3: in the first I believe it's a OT or WR unless Khalil Mack is gone, who we only take if Watkins is gone. In the second I believe it's a TE or WR, though it could be a LB. Here are some options of the third round: Donte Moncrief, Jarvis Landry, Jared Adberevis, CJ Fiederowicz, Trevor Rielly, Ego Furgeson, Yawin Smallwood, Shane Skov

Round 4: Really how I see it it's WR WR/TE WR/LB in the 1st 3 rounds. Here's another list that's not stuffed with WR and finally a new position, C. Here you go: Travis Swanson, Josh Huff, Bryan Stork, James Gayle, George Uko, Jordan Tripp,Arthur Lynch, Crockett Gilmore, Kenny Ladler

Round 6: First four rounds respectively WR, WR/TE, LB/WR, C/TE so it's been a heavy offensive draft since FA was mainly a defensive one taking a DE and S on D and WR on O. I believe the young corners will develop into solid starters and if not next year we should consider drafting but not this year. Anyway here are some 6th rounders: Jeff Janis, Joe don Duncan, Cody Hoffman, Tre Boston, Aaron Lynch, Tyler Larsen, Corey Lindsey, Chris Boswell, Anthony Ferra

Round 7: 6th round is most likely a C/TE/DE or K. At this point who ever you draft most likely won't be a major Impact so just go BPA
