Cap Space after signing draft picks: $15M
RB Carlos Hyde (1 year/$2.5M) ~12.5M left
WR Taylor Gabriel (1 year/$2.5M) ~10M left
We get a replacement bruiser back after losing Jordan Howard and get a speedster to be a low end WR on our depth chart.
Trade Picks 21, 53 and a 2020 3rd Round Pick to Cleveland for Pick 10.
Trade up to get a legitimate WR1 for Wentz
Pick 10- WR CeeDee Lamb/Oklahoma
Pick 103- LB Logan Wilson/Wyoming
Pick 127- OT Lucas Niang/TCU
Pick 145- C Matt Hennessy/Temple
Pick 146- S Brandon Jones/Texas
Pick 168- RB Eno Benjamin/Arizona State
Pick 190- WR Quintez Cephus/Wisconsin
We get our WR1 for Wentz, a physical and versatile LB and a potential backup LT if Mailata still isn’t ready with the first three picks. With the second half of our draft we get a potential gritty Kelce replacement, long term safety depth a pass catching RB who could be a development project and an athletic depth WR.
June 1st Cut:
WR Alshon Jeffery
Bye bye. We save about $10M for 2021 to help our dire cap situation.
