View Full Version : Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

Note: you can vote for multiple options.

I've seen lots of discussion to this point but I'm curious to see which of these options people would be OK with drafting at 1.1. Not who your favorite is, but which of these, if they came about, would you say "I'm happy enough."

For the trade down option, assume we get a little less than "fair" value for the number 1 pick. That is, the tradedown means we get an OK deal, but nothing that'll seem like a steal (for now).

I want Clowney or Robinson.

Trade down option would be great depending on compensation.

I would be "okay" with any because each has risk but offer potential. My preference would be trade.

Clowney and absolutely no one else or anything else

I'd prefer Watkins, Robinson, or Clowney at 1-1. I don't really like any of the QBs. If we can get a good deal, I'd be more than fine with a trade-down.

BUT.

Whomever the Texans pick, I'll get behind it and support it and hope for the best.

I voted for JDC, Robinson, Mack, Bridgewater and Trade Down.

My preference is for trade down.

I want Robinson because I think he'll help this team win more games than Watkins right off the bat.

I want Watkins because I think he's the best player in this draft.

I can understand if we pick Manziel, Clowney, or trade down.

Manziel, Bridgewater, or trade down.

Won't be butthurt if we take Sammy Watkins or Bortles, will be butthurt if we take Clowney.

Interesting note about this poll from earlier polls is the precipitous drop by Teddy and the rise of Jadevon.

Clowney, Manziel, Mack. Maybe Bridgewater, but his stock seems to be dropping.

Only against Robinson because spending a top-10 pick on a RT is idiotic.

Bortles is the only one that would get me butthurt.

Trade down would depend on the partner. Dropping to 6 with Atlanta was pretty much mean no Robinson, Manziel, or Mack.

It's been my opinion that Clowney is the best football player in this draft AND that the QBs don't wow me. Unless some great trade comes up, Clowney is my 1-1 and QB is addressed after that.

10 days away...

seems like everyone expect bortles and a WR.
but its either trade down or take clowney for most people to be happy

Still prefer Clowney first and foremost. I'd also be happy with a trade down if it netted multiple first round picks. If they're going to pick a QB at 1.1 no matter what, then I'd prefer Manziel (though I can dream he falls to the 33rd pick).

Ugh, didn't notice we could pick multiple until I was done. So I'll just list it:

1. Trade down is my favorite option. Rather enjoy the idea of multiple picks and don't see a QB I would really want at 1.1 but if we can't trade...

2. Clowney. Feel he is the best talent on the board so would go with him if we held the pick. Plug him in and have this defense keep us in games while the offense learns it's identity.

3. Manziel. A gamble I think but one that I think can pay off more than other QB's. He has the skills but some things he would have to develop and if O'Brien is the QB guru folks say he should be able to do wonders with Johnny's abilities...well...if Johnny continues to want to work at his craft like he has been doing.

With that said I have no issues with any of the players honestly so would support any unless they went completely left field.

Cool with any of the choices except Bortles or Bridgewater, but prefer to trade down if we get the right offer

I voted Bridgewater, Clowney, or trade down.

I'm completely open to Bortles and Mack as well but would prefer to trade back before pulling the trigger.

Jerry Ricecake, or Deion what's-his-face, but I'd rather have Joe Mountstanza or John Hellsway.

Just bumping this - Clowney and trade down are the two most popular options, it seems.

i would take a very weak deal to trade down. the top 7 or so position players are exceptionally solid, and the next 5-10 are very worthy of being taken early. whether or not it pans out at the NFL level, this is the strongest and deepest draft in years - the only weakness is no clear top 1-3. the biggest questionmark is the QB class. if i could trade down and still have the dilemma of 'do i take an amazing positional player or reach for the quarterback i like'? plus adding picks, plus boosting our future with another pick or two. I'd be all over it.

Biggest reason I did not include Bridgewater is that we can surely get him later, even if we have to trade back up from 33 to whatever. Honestly, I think that's the QB we need to get, unless we gamble on Manziel @ 1 or 6.
