2020 Draft Recap

D’Andre Swift, RB
1.03 (from Nosebleeds via 2020/2019 1st/2nd box spread)
With the highest odds to get the 1st pick in the draft after trading for the Nosebleeds 1st round pick… fate would be cruel. The last time the Horsemen took a player in the 1st round was in 2018 when they took another Lions running back, Kerryon Johnson. There will likely be a short camp battle with Swift ending up on top as the superior talent.

Will Fuller, WR
William was pretty good when he was healthy and the Texans will need him to be healthy if anyone is going to replace Deandre Hopkins production after he was sent away to Arizona.
Tyler Boyd, WR
2.01 (from Nosebleeds via Ertz/Antonio/Dak/Tucker trade)
Burrow likes slot receivers… so does the OC. There could be a massive opportunity to improve upon his WR23 finish from last year.
Antonio Gibson, RB
2.08 (from Drunken Aces via Adrian Peterson trade)
Antonio has very little experience at the running back but he’s a freak of nature. With Guice on the streets with domestic violence problems, someone is going to have to emerge from this backfield.
Rob Gronkowski, TE
Maybe after a year away from the game Gronk will be healed up enough to do Gronk things.
Matt Ryan, QB
Matty Ice spent the better part of 2012, 2013 and 2015 as a fixture for the Horsemen. He still leads all quarterbacks in franchise history in starts and total points – but is looking to improve upon his abysmal 56% career winning percentage.


Deandre Washington, RB
Washington proved valuable for the Horsemen when called upon to start in the 2019 championship. He’s got a new home now, but the opt out of Damien Williams could give him some unexpected upside as he reunites with his college quarterback in KC.
Antonio Brown, WR
It took Antonio sitting out a year for Julio Jones to surpass him as the highest scoring player in franchise history. But even after 17 extra starts, Antonio is only 28.9 total points behind him. That gap will broaden while Tony Toe Tap sits out the first 8 games before hopefully finding a new team – and smashing again.
Parris Campbell, WR
Rivers coming to Indianapolis will surely catapult one of these receivers to relevance. Some have called him a poor man’s Keenan Allen and with TY Hilton often ailing, he could see some immediate target volume.

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB
No one knows for sure why a backup quarterback was drafted. He is likely first man out the door to waivers.

Mike Gesicki, TE
He was pretty good last year. If Gronk looks like 2018 Gronk instead of 2015 Gronk, he could take the starting job with the Horsemen.
