So I have reached out to many people.
I was thinking initially that one person would take a team and give their takes on who/how they will draft and we could end with a AFSF mock draft.

Then I thought why limit it. Lets just discuss which ever team we want. Have some fun and debate possible picks.

We can still do mock drafts as we feel appropriate.

Feel free to jump in whenever and where ever you wish.

Joe Burrow says he has 'leverage' ahead of 2020 draft

Could LSU quarterback Joe Burrow pull an Eli Manning and force his way out of Cincinnati before playing a snap?

It's a question that the presumptive No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft didn't exactly scuttle when asked after receiving the 2019 Davey O'Brien Award in Fort Worth, Texas.

"I do have leverage," Burrow told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "They have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the (NFL Scouting) Combine yet. There's a lot of things that happen leading up to the draft and a lot of information gathered.

"Right now, I'm focused on being the best football player I can be. I'm in this unique spot. You can go watch my film. I don't have to prove myself at pro day and at the combine, so I'm in a unique spot where I can focus on getting ready for the year."

With the rookie wage scale negating most contract negotiations, the leverage Burrow owns could be used to tell Cincinnati he has no desire to play for the organization. It's a sentiment several have suggested Burrow should employ.

The Athens, Ohio native, who transferred from Ohio State to LSU, didn't say outright he'd play for Cincy if selected but noted to KTCK-AM the thought of playing close to home "would be a lot of fun."

Burrow carefully couched his comments, noting, "I can't wait to play for whatever team that drafts me."

The Heisman Trophy winner continually leaned on the well-worth athlete mantra that he's just working through the process.

"We have the combine. We have pro days," he said. "There is a long time 'til the draft. There is a lot of information in a lot of different places. A lot of people saying a lot of things. I'm just focused on training right now."

Burrow added he will attend the combine but is unsure how much he'll participate in on-field work.

Given his calculated responses to the idea that he could use his leverage to eschew the Bengals, the storyline surely won't dissipate before media availability at the combine next week.

no way Herbert drops that far in first round. I think Chuggers will take him over Tua if both available, despite Chuggers love for previously injured players.

Well it happened with others (Rodgers jumps to mind).

My worry is if the Chargers take a stud OL, great, but that means that Tyre-Fyre is their guy. He may not trow a lot of picks, but I am not sure that means he throws a lot of TDs either.

Chugs have to take Herbert if he’s sitting there at 8. Herbert had a great combine and has all the tools. Of course this probably means Telesco will pick an injured safety.

I wonder if they took an OL, if Jordan Love would drop to their second pick. Ala Brees.

They do need OL but Telesco’s track record is spotty on OLinemen in the draft, he’d be better served looking at free agency. They really need to make a splash at QB and Brady is not the answer.

Yeah...without being invested in a specific team, the draft sure isn't the same.

The only "mocks" I'll do will probably be making fun of those who take the draft too seriously...
I did that when I still was a fan. I always thought it was funny when people would debate who won the draft as if they could tell that before any of the players played. The only thing I liked about the draft was Jets fans booing their picks. Beyond that, I thought the draft was much ado about a bunch of boring people talking about boring stuff in front of a countdown. There was a guy at The Powder Blues who hated me for mocking the draft fans and their mocks. He thought I was an idiot, which I never pretended I wasn't. I just liked getting under that dude's skin. I was such a troll - still am I guess. And I think he's still a Spanos fan.

1. Is that giant Spicoli from Clemson in the draft?
2. Burrow. All the hype about him is legit. My only question is whether he can get it done behind a poor o'line. The guy at Clemson isn't as good at scrambling or passing as Burrow is, but I have seen giant Spicoli take a beating and still come through with great passes. I haven't seen Burrow under similar circumstances.
3. The dude who was on Alabama and then Oklahoma. The dude is a great leader and is every coach's dream as far as work ethic and attitude. He is also a good passer and a teriffic runner. However, he will have to improve at avoiding turnovers. He fumbles a lot, and, against better defenses, forces passes that could be picked off.
I don't know if I know any other would-be star quarterback. I think Ohio State or Oregon might have had top QBs like they always do, but I only saw them on bad days. Maybe there was a star QB at Penn State, which, for moral reasons, I have a hard time watching nowadays. Knowing the Nittany Lions are on TV gives me the same feeling I get when a Michael Jackson song I used to like is played.
