Mahomes (trade down from 10, late teens - twenties)
I like Mahomes because I believe we can build an offense built around a strong running game and a vertical passing game (aka a Bruce Arians offense, similar to Arizona / Pitts / Indy) that one of Mahomes or Cardale could potentially excel in with their talents. I think Mahomes and Cardale possess some similar traits, especially excellent arm talent and we could build our offense in the same mold for either.
Watson (2nd round, would be willing to trade up a few picks)
Trub (2nd round, would be willing to trade up a few picks)
Watson's arm makes me nervous, I believe we need to dramatically upgrade our skill talent for him and go a complete opposite direction as Cardale with more of a "Patriots" style offense for both him and Trub. I simply haven't seen enough to Trub compared to the other guys.
Webb (3rd round)
Kizer (3rd round)
I think Webb holds up pretty favorably to Goff considering they are coming out of the same scheme and Webb has a little more of a pro body. Kizer makes me very nervous about being an EJ repeat, I tend to believe Fuller / Prosise / Stanley had A LOT to do with his success in college and I'm not convinced he can make the leap. Brian Kelly trashing him also makes me nervous.
In that order
Like Dobbs as a late round flier
He's seen a lot of playing time in the SEC, is a smart guy, has the physical tools and has the most "Dak" potential in the draft IMO. Clearly he's got warts in his game, he never quite lived up to his hype in college and accuracy is an issue, but he's an intelligent experienced player.
I have very little interest in Peterman / Kaaya / Kelly.
Kelly's off the field issues are too much to really believe in and I think putting him in Buffalo is the worst possible fit for him. I don't think Peterman or Kaaya have the arm talent to play at this level.
