    Generous for Washington. We are crap.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    1. The Great Wall of China

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    They're all bunched. A couple of teams - inc Washington - are likely to get less than 5.5. At least two will get more than 11.5

    SF went from number two Draft Pick to the Superbowl, by picking a DE out of Ohio State, Washington are likely to pick a DE out of Ohio State at number 2 in Chase Young. They have a very good defensive coach so that side of the ball will be good. They are in a division where all the teams 'should' be stronger, but ultimately it'll come down to what they have in Haskins. If he is the real deal, I have my doubts, then I can see them being a progressive 8-8 side

    What Washington really needs is to improve the offensive line.

    People talk about QB being the most important position in sports, but I vehemently disagree. Trent fucking Dilfer won a Super Bowl. The OL as a unit is the most important "position" in sports. Or, at least in American football.

    Vikings too high. No cap space, ageing defence, too many key players they have to make a decision on and can't afford to re-sign them all. I honestly think there's a case to be made for trading the likes of Cook and Diggs and blowing it all up and try to find a franchise QB. Last one they had for any prolonged period was in the 70's which is just mental.

    Like it or not, Cousins is the Vikings franchise QB. Can't see that changing anytime soon.

    He may not be Patrick Mahomes, but he isn't the worst in the league either.

    He's $31m against the cap next season, but that's his last, so he isn't going anywhere yet but it doesn't stop them from drafting his 2021 replacement. 5 QBs are predicted to have first round talent in the first round, the problem for the Vikings is there are a lot of QB needy teams picking before 25. Bengals, Dolphins and Chargers are all certainties, I wouldn't rule out the Bucs or Raiders either. More likely they'll look for a developmental guy late in Day 2 or on Day 3 I'd have thought

    Yep, last year of his contract. "He's not Mahomes but he's not the worst in the league" is absolutely correct but the Vikings have settled for mediocrity for too long now. I think times are changing and unless you have an elite O line your QB needs some mobility at least, not asking for Lemar Jackson, just someone who can escape pressure and make plays.

    I also don't think they should be giving a big contract to Cook, too many other positions need addressing and as good as he is you can find good running backs for not a lot.

    You need an elite O line regardless.

    According to PFF the Chiefs O-Line were ranked 16th this season, you can win if it's serviceable by being creative with play calling and a QB that can escape pressure.

    You can win with an average O Line if you have a generational talent at QB. Otherwise, it's a requirement for success, full stop.

    The Chiefs O Line is also skewed statistically because they just don't run the ball the same way almost every other team does.

    Agreed.

    Every Redskin superbowl side has had that, going back to the Hogs, who were probably the best OL ever. Oh for a cloned Joe Jacoby about now!
