2024 NFL Offseason: Fixing the Bills, Cowboys and Eagles
Three teams entered the 2023 season with Super Bowl hopes. Now they're watching from home. How do we fix three NFL contenders?
The season has ended for media darlings Buffalo, Dallas and Philadelphia. The offseason has begun for teams that loaded up on veteran players to overtake the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in their respective conferences, only to fall short once again.
The Bills have never won a Super Bowl. The Cowboys haven’t since the 1995 season. The Eagles, fresh off a close loss in last year’s Super Bowl, regressed under an aging secondary and an out of sync offense.
How do we fix the mess that is these teams? Through the Draft, of course.
Today we’re not looking at hiring and firing coaches or spending money in free agency. This is instead a look at how the three teams picked by so many to win a title in 2024 can rebuild their futures through the draft with a team-by-team seven-round mock draft.
1.28: CB Quinyon Mitchell, Toledo
The Bills got old at cornerback in a hurry and we could see a major rebuild across the secondary. Mitchell will be a riser coming out of Senior Bowl practices once scouts are exposed to his speed and instincts.
2.60: WR Ja’Lynn Polk, Washington
With Stefon Diggs a possibility to play elsewhere in 2024 and Gabe Davis set to hit free agency, the Bills need to invest in youth at a position that seriously lacks depth. Polk is a physical, chain-moving wide receiver who has the speed to create separation on intermediate routes.
