Supermarket Sweep: Cleanup on Aisles 1-8
Shopping is the art of knowing where to find what … at the best possible prices.
That’s My Quarterback: #2 overall is primo position to draft or deal (Deshaun).
Utah, Get Me 2 (WRs): Snag a proven pass-catcher from a fertile free agency field and another in a loaded draft — at #23, the Darnold dividend, or atop the second round.
The CB Radio Blares ‘Calling ALL Corners’ — Sign a Niner, get back in the Poole, and land a legacy (Surtain, Horn, Samuel) at #23, the Darnold pick, or atop the second round.
Changing of the Guard: Whether we name that Thuney in free agency and then go guard-ening in the second or third round of a bumper crop interior linemen, the bevvy of combos and options make this position group the easiest to improve.
Herndon Hedge: Pounce on Hunter Henry or Jonnu Smith in March — because beyond Kyle Pitts — the draft cupboard is bare. Consolation prize — maybe we can salvage our lightly-used Darnold jerseys if Dan Arnold signs and sports “D. Arnold #14).
RBs: We Have the Meats! — Whether it’s the lingering reverberation of the Lev Bell bust or newfound Shanahan scheme swagger, few are in a rush for rushers. Pass on the overpriced Wagyu (Harris, Etienne) early and then go halfback-hunting in the third round. If Gainwell isn’t a nifty name for an RB, perhaps a Tarheel tailback is more to your liking.
Living (more like dying) on the Edge — Gonna’ need our best swim move to sack a vet or two in free agency. Can’t expect the new HC to make chicken Saleh out of … you know.
