If I were Pace...

Every one of us likes to predict what our shiny haired, million dollar smile GM Ryan Pace will do this off-season. It has led to cantankerous opinions and retorts from the countless posters here at WCG. Through it all, we maintain some level of civility, until now.

Let's play a little game.

I will follow the main points of the off-season schedule and provide the blueprint for what I feel should be done this off-season to make the Beloved competitive once again. Not only do I expect derision from all my dear WCG friends, but I have only one rule in this little game.

If you mock, you must offer your better take.

Let us begin!

Part 2 - Roster Re-tooling

Transition Kyle Fuller to FS

Part 3 - Mock Draft - using first-pick - using the trade feature only twice as it is a bit broken. I tried to limit myself to "realistic" trade versions.

Round 1

Garrett/Allen go 1/2. Trade offer from Tennessee: R1P3 for R1P5 & R1P18 - Taken - Keeps me above QB needy teams, hoping to get Trubisky at 5..... epic fail.... Cleveland traded to #4 to take Trubisky.

Pick 5: Jamal Adams

Pick 18: Deshaun Watson

Round 2

Pick 4: David Njoku (Takkarist McKinley was there)

Round 3

Pick 3: Cooper Kupp

Round 4

Pick 4: Damonte Kazee

Pick 10: Nathan Peterman (insurance for Watson)

Round 5

Trade offer from Denver R5P3 & R7P3 for R5P5 & R6P16 - Taken

Pick 5: Artavis Scott

Round 6

Pick 19: Charles Walker

So how did I fare? Roast me or Toast me? But remember, if you roast me, you bring something more appetizing to the table.
