  1. We can make the playoffs I think if we stay fairly healthy, but not quite at the level where I expect a Super Bowl run.
  2. I see 9 wins as a likely total, maybe 10. But this is June, and there's so much that can happen that nobody could know.
  3. Some players I would be eyeing closely for the Colts this season are: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas Harold Landry, Edge, Boston College Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson Connor Williams, OT, Texas Darius Guice, RB, LSU Sam Hubbard, Edge, Ohio St. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia L.J. Scott, RB, Michigan St. James Butler, RB, Nevada Wyatt Teller, G, Virginia Tech Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia Josh Sweat, Edge, Florida St. Dorance Armstrong, Edge, Kansas Porter Guston, Edge/LB, USC Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame Will Hernandez, G, UTEP
  4. If Nick Chubb could regain his pre injury form this year, I think he'd form a good duo with Mack.
  5. We'll probably need another strong running back next year. Mack is kind of a big play guy. We could use a bruiser.
  6. The Saints had a really nice draft. Added the top CB in the class. One of the best O-linemen in the class. A hyper athletic safety. And a dynamic running back. Heck of a haul IMO.
  7. If we're cutting guys and there are no injuries etc, I'd say Parry might be first to go (given his recent problems) then Hunt if we cut 2.
  8. I think we'll be competitive within the division, but I have a hard time seeing us beat the Patriots this year. They're freaking loaded! It's way too early to call, but I expect our defense to be improved and our offense to be similar to this past year as in good in passing, below average running the football. Also we're at a big risk on the offensive line. We're rolling out a couple of starters on the right side who we don't really know all that much about. We better hope they don't turn out to be worse than we think and get Luck killed.
  9. The questions I have about Banner are these: Can he become quick enough to play to play right tackle at the NFL level if he gets his weight down to 335-ish? Can he play with enough bend to play inside at guard given his 6'8.5" height? The answer to at least one of these questions has got to be yes, if he's ever going to have a place as a starter in this league. Otherwise he's just a backup who comes in on jumbo packages and pushes the pile.
  10. I know what you mean. I'm tired of having a bad running game. As much as I'm glad our defense is solidified, I was hoping Ballard would make some moves this offseason (whether in the draft or free agency) that really assured our running game would become legitimately good. He didn't really do that. On the other hand, there is some hope that Mack could be the answer at RB. I've been on record as saying I wasn't sky high on Mack, just kind of "okay" on his stock as a prospect. But I'll also be the first to say that running backs are hard to forecast, and I could be underrating him. I did see some reasons for optimism when I looked his tape again today, and his measurables look in line with an NFL RB. We'll have to wait and see.
  11. Potential areas of need include ILB, pass rusher, O-line... Maybe another RB later in the draft. But it's like a year away, much can change.
  12. Joe Mathis (edge rusher) and Boom Williams (running back)
  13. Hooker was a steal and a great pick up. Wilson was a good choice. Basham was a decent choice. Banner is a bit of a head scratcher. We really don't need another project on the O-line, and that's what he is. I don't hate the pick but I can't say it makes any sense to me. Mack was an okay choice. I'm kind of "meh" on him, but he's okay and most of the good running backs were of the board. Stewart is an okay pick. We can use another big D-lineman I guess. Don't know anything about the Temple CB we took in the 5th. Walker seems like more of a 4-3 LB on the surface, but he's a play maker so I'll take it. Pretty good pick in round 5. All in all I guess that sounds like a B+ to me.
  14. I'd like to see us add Brian Hill somewhere in the 4th round and Boom Williams as a UDFA.
  15. Hooker was a great choice at 15. Having said that, I do agree with the premise that at some point this off season, more should have been done to address our lackluster running game. In 2015 we were 29th in rushing volume and 31st in rushing efficiency. Last year we were 23rd in rushing volume and 22nd in efficiency. Expect the latter numbers to be similar, because we've done nothing personnel wise to improve them. Our O-line may be a little better this year with age, but our starting RB may be a little worse this year with age too. It kind of reminds me of the 2015 offseason in this way, where we had this obvious deficiency that we didn't adequately address... Except that the moves we're making on defense are this off season are far superior to 2015. I guess you can't fix everything in one season, but personally I think taking some pressure off the best young QB in football would've been a smart move. But Dalvin Cook over Malik Hooker is a hard no.
