PRetty decent chance both teams that passed us(Denver and the Jets) will take a QB so not the worst outcome. Worth it to end the season on that high note IMO.

Wouldn’t surprise me if Chubb is there at 7 actually. Here’s my pegs as of this moment.

CLE: QB
NYG: OL (probably the biggest chance here for Chubb.
IND: OL
CLE: Skill (I think Barkley)
DEN: QB
NYJ: QB
TB: Edge (likely Chubb)
