If the choice is between a guy like Bowser or Mahomes, I think the value is with Mahomes, for the future of the team. The cream of the crop edge guys will be reasonably picked over by 1.30, as demonstrated in both board mocks. CB, the second round-early 4th is pretty well stocked with talent, even deeper if you're able to overlook some warts.

This could be the year to take the chance on the QB.

I dislike this years qb class. I would trade up in next years draft including picks from 2019 draft.

With that one exception, I totally agree on this year's QB class, cop.

I think in years past we have waited for local sources before 'confirming' a pre-draft visit. I'll add McKinley, and here's one more:

If the juniors/RS Soph come out next year it could be an impressive class.

I like their thinking on both. Mahommes and Dobbs will both need time to develop but if it were me, those would be two of the QBs that I take a chance on.

I agree - I think they are taking Mahomes at 30. He is their kind of QB, and they like the idea of him sitting the remainder of Ben's deal.

If they do this, I wish they would also trade up and nab an OLB or CB too.

Draft Mahomes and offer next year's 1st for an early 2nd rounder for Bowser or Willis. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that strategy.

Rivers might be considered a local visit. very close to the 50 mile radius.

I think it would be just outside-- between 55 and 65, depending on where they measure to-from.

You and I would do this, I would be blown away if Colbert pulled the trigger on something like this.
