Samuel's issue isn't money; he doesn't like the way the 49ers are using him as a hybrid WR/RB and only wants to play a traditional WR position. I'm not sure why this is so hard to fix, unless the 49ers are that adamant about wanting to use him out of the backfield.

I think it's at least some of both, or he wouldn't have asked for a trade. But now that seemingly half the league is running some variation of Kyle Shanahan's offense... I'm not sure other teams will want to pay him huge money to be solely a WR, either.

The Jets make some sense given the Saleh/LaFleur connections, but I think the 49ers do whatever they can to keep him if they want any hope of contending next year.

Any predictions for the draft tomorrow?

This year seems to have a ton of unknowns, unlike last year when you could have gotten the top 5 right in your sleep, this year I'm certain I would go 0/32 if I attempted a mock draft.

My only prediction is that if the Jags don't take Aidan Hutchinson, the Lions will (bold, I know!)

Barring any late trades, the Packers don't pick until #s 21 and 28 tonight.  I hope my food and beverage last that long...

Eh, I'll read about it tomorrow during my morning "business meeting".
Not one of those people who watches the draft.  Far too tedious.

Barring a trade, you have to wait a little longer, for #22 and #28.

I remember the first time I watched the draft, with zero idea of what I was getting into. Vikings picked #16 and it took three freaking hours just to get that far. I was annoyed.

Thought just about every team has made good decisions so far, until Green Bay drafted a 2nd-round talent who plays a declining position - a position they already have solid starters at - while ignoring huge needs at WR, OG, and DE.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Donít hate the Cowboys selection but I would rather have them pick a cornerback.

Wow, a crazy first round in the books. A ton of trades, including Hollywood Brown to the Cardinals and AJ Brown to the Eagles, a Strange pick by the Patriots, and only one QB drafted, Kenny Pickett to the Steelers. I think the Jets and Lions are the biggest winners tonight.

Overall, only 14 teams picked in their original spot. After the first 6 picks, 18 of the next 26 picks (69%) involved a trade. And 10 teams did not pick in the first round which has to be an all-time high. The NFC East was the only division where all 4 teams made a pick!

Teams that picked three times: Jets
Teams that picked twice: Jaguars, Lions, Texans, Giants, Saints, Ravens, Chiefs, Packers
Teams that picked once: Panthers, Falcons, Seahawks, Eagles, Commanders, Chargers, Titans, Steelers, Bills, Cowboys, Patriots, Bengals, Vikings

Teams that did not pick:
-Dolphins (Tyreek Hill trade)
-Raiders (Davante Adams trade)
-Broncos (Russell Wilson trade)
-Browns (Deshaun Watson trade)
-Colts (Carson Wentz trade)
-Cardinals (Hollywood Brown trade)
-Rams (Matt Stafford trade)
-Buccaneers (traded #27 to Jacksonville)
-Bears (trade up for Justin Fields)
-49ers (trade up for Trey Lance)

The Bills must have thought the same thing, because they jumped the Cowboys to get CB Kaiir Elam (never heard of him until tonight, but he seems like a good fit).

Just five words sums up how I feel about my Texans:  "I still trust Nick Caserio!"

Not sure why a lot of griping/complaining within our fanbase, but if there is any GM or executive out there that know how to rebuild a team, Nick certainly is it.

This draft reminds me of someone at TJ Maxx picking through a disaster pile of clothes looking for a 3-piack of underwear.

Saw this on an Ohio State fan page....

"as of last night's draft, TTUN has finally produced the same number of defensive players picked in the Top 5 as Cheryl Bosa"

Not even mad that my Bengals drafted a player from TTUN.

I can somewhat believe it, but I can't believe only one QB went in the first round.

I can and I'm glad that talent is recognized. There were years when QBs were picked well ahead of where deserved simply cause most bad teams lack a good QB.

And it's officially extended through round 2: still just 1 QB off the board.

There's probably going to be a run of QB's at some point, but the question is: for which teams?  16/16 AFC teams now have a guaranteed starter or close to it, so it will be NFC teams. Maybe Lions, Falcons, Panthers, Seahawks, Commanders... ?

... speaking of pick 74, Desmond Ridder to the Falcons!
Malik Willis to the Titans at 86
Matt Corral to the Panthers at 94

Great value by all three teams IMO.
