Default What would you do?

So if the season plays out like the first half has so far, and we pick around the top 10, and things go something like this

KC: Barkley
Jacksonville: G. Smith
Cleveland: Jarvis Jones
Panthers: Star Lotulelei
Raiders: Dee Milliner
Bills: Tyler Wilson
Titans: Sam Montgomery
Colts: Man'ti Te'o
Jets: Werner
Bengals: ???

Who the hell would be of value there for us? Talk about worst scenario.

What would you do?

(I realize the Colts MAY opt for a stud DT like Hankins, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities.)

Hope someone in the mid 20s really wants to move up for Matt Barkley.

Oh I missed that! Yeah that would be worst case scenario. If you cant move down you have to look at a DE I would think, like Moore.

I am extremely weary of Mingo. Has he even turned it on this year? I haven't seen much LSU but last I heard his production was minimal. And he is undersized at DE. And who knows if he could cover well enough to play LB.

If no offensive linemen have been picked I don't see why we don't go ahead and take the best one.

I can kind of see what you are saying. Luke Joeckel out of Texas A&M would be a steal at this point, so if we didn't resign Andre Smith for some stupid reason, this would be the obvious pick. If we do resign Smith, we essentially would have 5 good offensive lineman but none of them player center.

I'd grab Hankins in a heartbeat if it mean Peko was sent packing.

Otherwise I would probably grab Keenan Allen if we still don't have a clear cut #2 WR.

Or maybe Mingo if we did have a WR.

It's a pretty bad situation regardless.

I would go Barrett Jones who could play G or C for us or look at a WR like Justin Hunter or Kennan Lewis.

I really think someone like Alec Ogletree is going to sneak up boards as well and he might be worth looking at.

But as you said, this is worse case scenario.

At that point you have to go best player available.

Trade back with someone in the 15-20 spot, land CJ Moseley in the 1st, end up with three 2nd rounders. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
