This scenario is a little bit out there but I'm acting on some of the recent reports and I figured the fun of these is creativity.
Released
Jake Long OT
Kendall Langford DT
Scott Wells C
Eugene Sims DE
Isaiah Pead HB

Re-signed Players
Kenny Britt - 4 years $20 million($5 million first year)
Lance Kendricks - 3 years $9 million($3 million first year)
Shaun Hill - 1 year $1.5 million
Mike Person - 1 year $745,000
Cory Harkey - ERFA($645,000)
Rodney McLeod - RFA($1.4 million - Original Round)

Free Agency
Jermey Parnell OT

3 years $12 million($4 million first year)

Parnell has been Dallas's swing OT the last few years and ended up starting 6 games at RT last year. He allowed 0 sacks in his 6 starts including both of Dallas's playoff games. He'd step in and compete for the RT job for us as well as giving us a legitimate swing OT as depth.

Rob Sims OG

2 years $5 million($2.5 million first year)

The Lions are expected to let Sims go as they try to rebuild their OL. Sims is 31 years old but he's started each of the 80 games in the past 5 years. He's consistent and durable which are two things we need. He'll compete with a draft pick for the starting OG job and provide quality depth.

Leger Douzable DT

2 years $3 million($1.5 million first year)

Douzable is a rotational DT that can step into the run stuffer role and is even capable of playing some DE if needed.

Josh Freeman QB

1 year $745,000

Freeman will have the opportunity to compete for a QB job. He's worked with Weinke before so we take a shot on his talent. If he acts out or doesn't work hard, he can go back to watching football from his couch.

Trades
St. Louis trades 1st round #10
Philadelphia trades 1st round #20, QB Nick Foles, and 4th round #20

St. Louis trades QB Sam Bradford
Cleveland trades 2nd round #11

St. Louis trades HB Zach Stacy
Indianapolis trades 6th round #29

Philadelphia decides to make their move and go all in on Mariota. They offer us this trade to get the #10 pick and then trade up with Jacksonville at #3 by offering two firsts, their 2nd this year, and their 4th next year. We value Foles as a 2nd rounder in this trade.

With Foles coming over, the Rams decide to take Cleveland up on their offer and move Bradford for a 2nd.

Indianapolis seems to like power HBs and they have multiple 6th round picks. Stacy is good at grinding out yardage and should fit in well with their HB stable.

NFL Draft
Round 1 Pick #20 - T.J. Clemmings OG/OT Pittsburgh
Analysis: Clemmings falls due to his rawness and a tough Senior bowl week. I think it'll be at least a year before Clemmings is ready to play OT in the NFL but I do think he can play OG as a rookie. He'll compete with Rob Sims for the starting OG spot. Clemmings has great physical gifts but is a raw player still learning how to play OL. That all said, he is already a devastating run blocker despite needing technical work.

Round 2 Pick #9 - A.J. Cann OG/C South Carolina
Analysis: This should be no surprise, I have had Cann in many of my mocks. I love his fit in our scheme and him saying that he can play Center only makes him more valuable for me. Cann might not be able to compete for the Center job this year but he'll be able to compete at OG at worst.

Round 2 Pick #11 - Paul Dawson LB Texas Christian
Analysis: There have been some reports of character concerns with Paul Dawson but I'm unfazed. The guy has a great motor and is constantly moving on the field. Dawson is a top tier athlete with elite cover skills and excellent overall instincts. He'll be able to play OLB and might be Laurinaitis's heir apparent at MLB.

Round 3 Pick #8 - DeAndre Smelter WR Georgia Tech
Analysis: Maybe I could wait and get him in the fourth but I'd rather not take that risk. Smelter tore his ACL late in the year or else I think he'd be in the running to be a first round pick. He's an outstanding athlete at 6'2" 226 with massive 11 inch hands and he bullies defenders despite having only two years of experience in college football. He's a project WR but he has major upside down the road. I'd love to get him with Kenny Britt and Brian Quick.

Round 4 Pick #20 - Chaz Green OT/OG Florida
Analysis: Green hasn't gotten much hype unlike teammate D.J. Humphries but he's deserving of it. Like Humphries, he's had durability issues at UF but Green still possesses good athleticism and the power to generate movement in the running game. At 6'5" 315, he's a good fit for our PBS and is capable of providing depth at four positions. He also might be able to compete with Parnell as a rookie for that starting RT job as Green is a good pass protector with impressive range on the edge.

Round 5 Pick #9 - Donald Celiscar CB Western Michigan
Analysis: Makes me think of E.J. Gaines because he's EXTREMELY productive, experienced, and natural in coverage but is being underrated due to measurables. Great feet and hips, drives on the football extremely well, good ball-skills, willing in run support, and anticipates routes well. But he's a tad undersized and lacks great straight-line speed. Underrated player.

Round 6 Pick #29 - Josh Robinson HB Mississippi State
Analysis: I had us taking him in the 3rd round 10 or so days ago but the Combine can be brutal for some players. This is a super deep and talented HB class and some guys will fall further than they should. After running a 4.7 40, Robinson will likely be one of those guys. I don't care about his 40. The guy is built at 5'8" 220, runs like a bull, and has massive hands for his size which allows him to be a very good pass catcher. Just watch him against LSU and tell me that he's a 6th round pick.

Round 6 Pick Comp - Darius Kilgo DT Maryland
Analysis: Kilgo is a very big man at 6'4" 320 and will offer us another rotational run stopper behind Brockers, Donald, and Douzable. Kilgo needs some development on his handwork and use of leverage as he gets too high with his pad level but he's extremely stout at the POA and very strong. He played NT in Maryland's 3-4 defense. He's a project for Coach Waufle to develop.

Round 7 Pick #31 - Taylor Heinicke QB Old Dominion
Analysis: We take a shot on a developmental QB. Heinicke impressed me with his ball placement, instinctual ability to find passing lanes, and willingness to climb the pocket. However, he's short(6'1"), struggles throwing over the line, and lacks a great arm. I think he has a lot in common with Chase Daniel but he's more athletic and has a slightly stronger arm. He's really surprising in how mobile and athletic he is.

Starting Line-up
QB: Nick Foles
HB: Tre Mason
FB: Cory Harkey
XWR: Brian Quick
ZWR: Kenny Britt
SLWR: Tavon Austin
TE: Jared Cook
LT: Greg Robinson
LG: Rob Sims
C: Barrett Jones
RG: Rodger Saffold
RT: Jermey Parnell

LDE: Chris Long
LDT: Aaron Donald
RDT: Michael Brockers
RDE: Robert Quinn
WLB: Alec Ogletree
MLB: James Laurinaitis
SPUR: Mark Barron
LCB: Trumaine Johnson
RCB: Janoris Jenkins
NCB: E.J. Gaines
FS: Rodney McLeod
SS: T.J. McDonald

K: Greg Zuerlein
P: Johnny Hekker
LS: Jake McQuaide
KR: Bennie Cunningham
PR: Tavon Austin

Our OL is finally a deep and talented unit with our depth consisting of:
Utility: Mike Person
Utility: Chaz Green
Utility: T.J. Clemmings
OG/C: A.J. Cann
C: Demetrius Rhaney

I realize that I have zero rookie starters but that's because I don't believe in penciling in rookies for a starting job if we have a starting caliber vet. You never know how ready a guy will or won't be.

Off the field? Like when he is grocery shopping, does he block the freezer aisle with his sluggish selection of which hungry man to buy?

The only thing I'm not certain about is the center position. The fact that Fisher didn't put Jones or Barnes for that matter in with Wells being so horrible raises questions about their ability to play. I realize Fisher can be loyal to a fault with veterans but the fact we never saw Jones on the field with both Wells and Joseph being so awful makes me wonder if the coaching staff thinks he can get it done. I like Jones and always have but the question lingers with me. Other than that great work as always.
