Ryan Potts’s Mock 3.0: Chaos, Screams, and Explosions


In recent weeks, Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins have taken shots from the media and certain organizations. What felt like locked-in selections for Murray at No. 1 and Haskins at No. 6 have been unnerved by a variety of reports. While Murray is a likely No. 1 pick candidate still, Haskins has slipped on many draft boards. While still generally regarded as QB2, Haskins seems to be an afterthought for the Giants at No.6.

Neither selection is by any means a guarantee. Murray could be passed up for defensive talents such as Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, or Quinnen Williams. Haskins could be passed up for Montez Sweat, Greedy Williams or a player of a non-skill position.

Disclaimer: This will probably not happen. This is simply a thought experiment based on a hot-take-infused tweet.

However unlikely, this potential draft would cause Twitter pandemonium and probably Armageddon.

1. Arizona Cardinals: Quinnen Williams, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State


3. New York Jets: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

4. Oakland Raiders: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jawaan Taylor, Offensive Tackle, Florida

6. New York Giants: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State


7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ed Oliver, Defensive Tackle, Houston

8. Detroit Lions: T.J. Hockenson, Tight End, Iowa

9. Buffalo Bills: Andre Dillard, Offensive Tackle, Washington State

10. Denver Broncos: Devin White, Linebacker, LSU

11. Cincinnati Bengals: Rashan Gary, EDGE, Michigan

12. Green Bay Packers: Noah Fant, Tight End, Iowa

13. Miami Dolphins: Devin Bush, Linebacker, Michigan


14. Atlanta Falcons: Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson

15. Washington Redskins: D.K. Metcalf, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss

16. Carolina Panthers: Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

17. New York Giants: Greedy Williams, Cornerback, LSU

18. Minnesota Vikings: Cody Ford, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

19. Tennessee Titans: Marquise Brown, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Byron Murphy, Cornerback, Washington

21. Seattle Seahawks: Garrett Bradbury, Center, NC State

22. Baltimore Ravens: Hakeem Butler, Wide Receiver, Iowa State

23. Houston Texans: Erik McCoy, Center, Texas

24. Oakland Raiders: Josh Jacobs, Running Back, Alabama

25. Philadelphia Eagles: DeAndre Baker, Cornerback, Georgia

26. Indianapolis Colts: N’Keal Harry, Wide Receiver, Arizona State

27. Oakland Raiders: A.J. Brown, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss

28.  Angeles Chargers: Dalton Risner, Offensive Tackle, Kansas State

29. Kansas City Chiefs: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Safety, Florida

30. Green Bay Packers: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

31. Los Angeles Rams: Jerry Tillery, Defensive Tackle, Notre Dame

32. New England Patriots: Irv Smith, Tight End, Alabama

No quarterbacks in the first round? If this were to happen, it will be the first time since the 1996 NFL draft that no quarterbacks were selected in the first round of picks. Although highly unlikely, this draft would cause chaos across the entire league as teams in the second round would jockey for position on the fall of quarterbacks.

The main reason why the draft may not happen is due to the likelihood that someone trades up for the likes of Kyler Murray or Dwayne Haskins if teams such as Arizona and the New York Giants pass on them early. There are a handful of teams, including Denver and Cincinnati, that would be chomping at the bit to trade up for either of the top two quarterbacks in the draft.

With no quarterbacks being taken in the round, all of the defensive talents slides up a couple of spots. Due to this, teams at the end of the first round that might look for one of the top 15 or 20 players to fall into their laps are left getting slot talent more so than overachieving in their position. This could immediately affect the Ravens, Raiders, and Eagles who are looking for talent more so than positional need.

As a whole, it is mutually beneficial when a team selects a quarterback. The team that gets the quarterback thinks they are getting their man of the future, while the other 31 teams have a higher likelihood of acquiring a star at a different position. For example, in this draft, if four quarterbacks go in the top 10 to 12 picks, a team such as the Atlanta Falcons might end up with the potential best player in the draft, Ed Oliver. Similarly, a run of wide receivers could push defensive talent down the draft, which would benefit the likes of Baltimore, Oakland, and Philadelphia as well as potential teams to trade up.
