My too early off season


The roster is getting a decent overall through FA and the draft. The craziest thing I'm willing to do is trade back in the first, twice. The craziness is this, 2019 1st, lower 2019 3rd, and 2020 2nd to the Raiders for the lower 2 first round picks.
So currently that is 7th overall, 94th overall, and 2020 2nd for 11th and 25th overall (like this will even happen but according to trade value calculators it is about a 70 in value lost for us). We then trade the 25th overall pick for the 42nd, 74th, and 170th picks owned by the Indianapolis Colts.
The third and last trade is Darron Lee, 103rd, 199th, and 170th overall picks to the Green Bay Packers for the 78th, 110th, and 122nd overall picks.

11th overall pick: Josh Allen OLB/ILB Kentucky
This might be a bit of a reach pick but Allen is a great edge rusher with plenty of potential on the inside as well. Having him solidify what could be a better line backer corp would be a huge get.


42nd overall: Mitch Hyatt OT Clemson
Another small reach for the pick but the technical prowess of Hyatt can make the line become so much better. It also enables Beachum to be a back up tackle or have someone to learn behind him for a year.

71st overall: Ross Pierschbacher OG/C Alabama
A solid interior lineman from Alabama and could end up being a starter as a guard or center in the NFL.

74th overall: Keelan Doss WR Cal Davis
Underappreciated WR due to his division but looks to have all the talent to be a number 1 WR in the NFL.

78th overall: Ryan Finley
Jets add some depth at the QB position with a little project QB but has a lot of upside potential to be a starter for a lesser team (like Ryan Tannehill).

110th overall: Dalton Risner OT/C Kansas State
Risner is a decent run blocking OT and hasn't played center in a few years but was a good one there. So there is more flexibility on our line with this draft pick as well.

122nd overall: Sutton Smith OLB Northern Illinois
Underrated player currently. Has a constant motor and excels at pass rushing and coverage.

It is a small draft class but they are very specific players that I drafted as they will round out the off season acquisitions quite well I believe. Now that we have our draft class on the digital paper it is time to get the free agent signings as well.

As of right now we need could use Guard, Two-Three Wide Receivers, Tight End, and Running back on the offensive side of the ball. On the defensive side we could use a Defensive Tackle and End, Inside Linebacker, and Two Cornerbacks to finish up the team. In my mind I did take care of that in FA but I haven't stated who is on the team. Of course the team needs a kicker too. Now I'm not against bringing Myers back but I want to go young and have the kicker potentially play for this team for nearly 2 decades.

So here are the FA signings:
Guard- Mark Glowinski: I'm willing to commit big time to this offensive line and he is getting a 4 year deal with 250k in signing bonus, 1m roster bonus each year
year 1: 1.5m, 1.5m guaranteed
year 2: 2.0m, 1.0m guaranteed
year 3: 2.0m, 1.0m guaranteed
year 4: 900k, 900k guaranteed

Mark is a great RG and this would enable us to put Spencer Long in the LG spot and have Pierschbacher as our starting center.

Wide Receivers-
Rishard Matthews: He wasn't with the team too long so I give him a 1 year prove it deal at 1.3 million and none of it guarenteed, he does get a 500k signing bonus however.

Robby Anderson: He is kind of the start of the core of WR and would be a great option across from Doss. However with the offseason issues he is constantly having I am giving him an original round tender to the tune of 2.035m.

Andre Roberts: Brought back as the returner but also as WR depth. He gets a 3 year deal with 750k in bonuses split between the years and no guaranteed money.

Tight End-
Geoff Swaim: He is a good blocking Tight End and has a knack for catching the ball as well. Should be a good depth option and might make Leggett forgettable. 1 year with a 1 million signing bonus and a fully guaranteed salary of 1 million.

Running Back-
TJ Yeldon: Someone this young doesn't get on the market too often and we should jump at the chance of the Jags having to choose between Yeldon and Fournette. However he does have some history so he is getting a 2 year deal with 2.0m of salary each year with 1m guarenteed in year 1 and 500k in year 2. Signing bonus is given for 1.5m so registering a 750k each year.

Defensive End-
Henry Anderson: He is a known player and shouldn't be too much. 1.25m with a 500k signing bonus.

Defensive Tackle-
Daniel McCullers: Appreciated DT for the Steelers and would be a good addition to this defense. He is getting a similar 4 year deal to Glowinski but we will give him an increase of 1 million each year (2.5, 3m, 3m, 1.9m)

Cornerbacks-
Ronald Darby: IF he makes it to the FA time frame I am throwing Tru Johnson money at him no matter what. Having the two of them opposite each other would be an amazing CB tandem that we haven't seen since Revis-Cromartie (the first time).

Davon House: He is a bit on the older side of things but he should be a solid pick up for the slot considering the improvements to other parts of the defense. As well he could be bumped by Nickerson or Jones to be the 4th CB.

Inside Linebacker-
This is where a lot of the money to improve the defense was spent as we spent a lot to pry 1 player away from his current team, Kwon Alexander. He will probably get something around Jamie Collin's contract here and I'm ok with that.

Kicker-
Justin Yoon out of Notre Dame is the man I'm going after. Probably doesn't have to be an exorbitant contract here. Probably just a small 2-5 year contract that kickers normally get.

I believe that actually puts this team UNDER the 53 man roster (by like 5 or so) and there are a few places that we can add depth to like OLBs, WRs, and DTs to name a few. But this is the main group I believe. I think the defense is much improved with just the addition of Smith and Allen but Kwon letting Avery do his thing as an inside linebacker improves that group so much. Darby over Claiborne is a no brain pick for anyone I believe. House should be able to cover the likes of the slot receivers we see in our division. If I had to pick the weakest groups on each side of the ball I for sure would say the WRs and DEs. The depth on the DEs leaves more to be desired but Williams should help open things up easily for Smith or Allen, look for those two to compete for DROY.
