    In no particular order...
    QB...Darnold, Rosen, Mayfield
    RB ...Barkley
    DE...Chubb
    LB...Smith, Edmunds
    S...James
    CB...Ward, Fitzpatrick

    Who is there after these are gone that you would take at 11?

    This question sucks! LOL

    I’m swinging for the fences with Josh Allen. If not I’m trading down for Vander Esch.

    I have a strong suspicion that Harold Landry is going to be a Pro Bowler.

    You don't list Nelson at OG.

    Agreed on Landry but I’d be shocked if Miami goes edge in round one.

    If Miami is sticking to the principle of BPA, despite having a stable of DE’s, then Marcus Davenport has to be considered there. I’d also think Quenten Nelson would be in play.

    If it were me, then I’d look for an opportunity to trade down and look for Rashaan Evans, Leighton Vander Esch, Josh Jackson, or Lamar Jackson.

    If the ten you listed are gone and we don't trade down, then yes, I would grab Nelson. He's a once in a decade talent on the OL.

    Vander Esch and I wouldn't trade back. LVE has a top 10 grade, has excellent coverage skills and ranks right there with Smith and Edmunds. Stay the course and draft the guy who could man multiple positions on the defense.

    You pick the best player on the board, either Nelson or Davenport... Of those 2, I think Nelson makes the most impact year 1 given how the Fins roster is set up...

    I know he is probably worth just taking at 11. But I think you can trade in the late teens, pick up some more picks and still get him.

    I was under the impression that he was more of a late first projection... If he is no reach at 11, then he'd be a much better addition than a DE or G, is he a better prospect than say Nelson and Davenport?

    Agree on Nelson, probably the safest player in the draft as well. Vea would be my second choice.

    I think someone behind us would be hot for Josh Allen in this scenario.

    If i'm on the clock with no trade down opportunity, Quenton Nelson.

    I don't think he is better than Nelson, I just don't think we would go G at 11...we could and I would be fine with Nelson, but I think the line is set at this point. Vander Esch could go anywhere from top 10 to mid-20's...just depends on how the draft falls, but a defensive needy should not pass him up.

    Some people are predicting that Nelson will slide, just because of the position he plays.

    If so, I'd grab Nelson.

    Yeah I didn’t include Nelson because I don’t think anyone in the organization is going to bang the table for a guard. But I’d be fine with it.

    I’d hate it if we took an OG at 11, but could live with it in this rare talent of a player. In this scenario I’d be tempted to take Landry if I can’t trade down. I think he will be a difference maker and a Pro Bowler. Injury history worries me a lot tho.

    Nelson and then I'm I'm going to truck stick the patriots all game long. Seriously not passing on a pro bowl lineman.

    Wasn't an oversight... I think he slides out of top ten because of position...OT would be a top 10 IMO but even though he is an awesome pick I think guards slide a bit....we will see soon

    The three best players in this draft are probably Chubb, Barkley and Nelson.

    If one of them is there at 11, you'd pretty much have to select him, regardless of position.

    I'll throw another one out there, GUICE. For me, in the 1st round it's a 'going for the fences' round. Either QB or a 'homerun', in this scenario, I wouldn't mind that homerun threat of a GUICE/DRAKE combo.

    Buuuttt... I could be reasoned with in taking NELSON. Love me some road grader with pass protection ability.

    Interesting...I would go with Nelson over Guice because of the long term impact for the team AND the depth of RB's available with similar value...I think there are at least 2 RB's that will be available in round 3 that would compliment us nicely

    Assuming we can’t trade, and it is the only way to play this game.....

    Nelson
    Davenport
    Evans

    In accordance with teams draft board of who they rank highest.

    Nelson at 11 and sure up the O-line...possibly for the next decade if they manage these guys correctly...Nelson is a pro-bowler already and hasn't even taken a snap yet. it wouldn't be sexy but it would sure be amazing if was there...

    Tough question, this is the one scenario I fear can very well happen to our Phins on draft day. But what I hope happens is for QB desperate teams to trade in to the top 10, therefore pushing other coveted players out of the top 10 for us to pick :)

    But going back to your scenario:

    1st Choice: I hope the Phins look to trade down in the mid to late first round because all the coveted players are gone. If they do successfully trade down in the first, I hope we can get another 2nd, 3rd, or 4th, and draft Leighton Vander Esch. If they can't find the right value from potential trade partners, then draft BPA:

    2nd Choice: BPA is definitely Quenton Nelson: Not a sexy pick for us, but he is the best guard prospect over the last 5 years. He will be a consistent Pro Bowler. This will make an already good looking offensive line (on paper) look more formidable.

    BPA is Nelson but do you move him to RG as a rookie and make him switch again next year IF Sitton retires. Moving Sitton from his natural spot is not a great idea, IMO.

    I'd probably trade down in this scenario for someone wanting Josh Allen. Not wild about a guard this high to begin with...even if he is "generational". He is a dominant run blocker but not as dominant in pass pro. I don't think the drop-off in talent/value is that big compared to what Isaiah Wynn will be...as well as other guards in this draft like Will Hernandez.

    Trade down, grab Da"Ron Payne and an additional 2nd round pick. Teams may be willing to give up more than the value chart considering Buffalo is foaming at the mouth at 12. Teams will want to jump them.

    We end up with DaRon Payne, a top TE as well as our original pick 42 for a top free safety. Would you rather have Nelson or a top DT AND TE?

    You could also go Vander Esch, DT and then TE.

    Easiest decision possible.

    Quenton Nelson come on down. There isn't a better scenario IMO than this one.

    Nelson/Goedert combination is what I want. I know a lot of people want a LB and its hard to resist but id like to upgrade around my QB as much as i can.

    For those that dont want Nelson you likely dont have to worry about it. I'll be happy settling for a blue chip defensive player.

    I’d pick Nelson. Buffalo would undoubtably pick him given incognitos retirement. Plus, he’s a monster of a player at a position of need.
