Its like, Why waste the time of inviting so many players and not sign them? At some point you have to sign somebody. We need bodies (Hopefully with experience to fill the roster, especially at DB. I mean we still have TJ Green on the roster at DB and that isnt much to be excited about. ijs...
And some people said we reached for Q.Nelson. But in the same breath say we need to protect Luck...Wait a minute...So CB goes to the market, buys groceries and you complain that he took too long?
Happy Mothers Day!
Or you could totally dislike the pick/player. Have you even watched the kid play? If I could recall correctly, He had less than 200 snaps in college (fresh legs) and when he did hit the whole it was with Chris Johnson like speed to the 2nd level.
Is calling any player quick/fast as CJ2k impossible to you? Just say that and we all could move along.
DT DT DT. I hope we could tread until DT help comes because more than DB weakness I truly believe DT is the biggest issue on this team right now. Stopping the run will be an issue against teams i.e. Pitts/Pats/Jags. And AV is like 140 y/o so Kicker will have to be addressed in the near future as well.
The best way to get this team to the next level from its current state is; Considering 5 picks within 2 rounds:
solidify the middle of your O-Line (2 Picks);
Add pressure from the outside of your defense specifically front 7 (3 Picks) wins bowls.
Rnd 1 Pick 6 (6)Quenton Nelson G
Rnd 2 Pick 4(36)Darius Leonard OLBSouth Carolina St.
Rnd 2 Pick 5 (37) Braden Smith G Auburn
Rnd 2 Pick 20 (52) Kemoko Turay EDGE Rutgers
Rnd 2 Pick 32 (64) Tyquan Lewis DE Ohio St.
I hear your sentiments however, Had the Colts ended up with the 2nd Ovr pick, we would have drafted Barkley imo. Remember during the Presser CB iterated how he felt the presence of guys i.e. AP and Dez Bryant while on the sideline. Im sure if you watched a Barkley game in person this is somewhat similar with him. SB had a heck of a game doing stop and go cuts even jumping over players, taking a hit and still running down the sideline (Watch the IOWA 2017 game).
