  1. Take an early stab at it. Didn't draft a RB, frankly just wasn't sure where we would take one. Two prospects I like the most outside of the first round are the WR Hamilton and ILB Jewell. R1 P3 a) Bradley Chubb- OLB, NC State- just need more playmakers- sacks, TFL’s, etc b) Quinton Nelson- G, Notre Dame- solidifies the inside of the OL with Kelly, need less pressure and more running lanes. R2 P36 a) Braden Smith, OG, Auburn- brings strength and great pass blocking to the interior “Per CFB Film Room, Smith allowed just one sack and four hurries on 387 pass blocking snaps through the SEC Championship Game in 2017” https://nflmocks.com/2018/01/04/braden-smith-ol-auburn-2018-nfl-draft-scouting-report/ b) Sony Michel, RB, Georgia- burst and big play ability, a lot like Mack, just more aggressive R3 P67 a) Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa- upgrade at ILB, had 11 PBU’s this season R4 P106 a) Daesean Hamilton, WR, Penn State- every scouting report says- “sure handed”, wow, a Colts WR with sure hands, that would be a welcome sight. More of a possession WR, but good blocker. Would pair nicely with Hilton. Thinking Reggie Wayne type receiver? R5 P142 a) Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia- stout run blocker who can move/pull R6 P182 a) Kameron Kelly, CB, San Diego State- tall CB with man to man coverage skills R7 P222 a) Chris Worley, ILB, Ohio State- almost wouldn’t be a Colts draft without an Ohio State player
  2. Nelson- we immediately have fewer sacks/pressures up the middle, better ability to run the ball, we are a better football team Barkley- like Mack, but 2 levels higher, they are very similar to me, almost too similar. But he gives us the big play threat every play. If Luck plays like Luck, Hilton returns to form, we would have a potent triplets on our hands Smith- NO Big GA fan (crushed at our stupid loss last night), but Smith isn't worth the #3 pick in any scenario Of the three listed by the OP, My pick- Nelson Time we had a solid OL with some real top level talent rather than marginal talent and retreads Others: Orlando Brown, Chubb and like other posters have said Fitzpatrick should be a consideration at #3.
  3. Wonder if we are going to get that surprise candidate. Everyone, other than the Raiders, interviewing pretty much the same guys. Particularly now that Nagy is off the list and if Wilks or someone else gets hired quickly. Would be interesting to see who would come up as a potential candidate.
  4. Bears to Hire Nagy

    Wasn't really excited about him anyway, but good for the Bears if they got their guy. Still feels like we are going to expand our interview list by a name or two- Shurmur, Reich, Schwartz or fill in the blank surprise candidate(s)?
  5. Like several others- would like to see them give Frank Reich a shot. Just like the fact that he has been successful in whatever role he has been in. Coached Manning for a while, that wouldn't hurt his resume. Ultimately, unless there is some change in the people we are interviewing, IMO it comes down to McDaniels or Nagy. Of those two, I really don't care- just give us an O that we can run successfully and hire a bang up DC to get after the QB.
  6. The only reason I would hedge on someone like Nagy or Wilkes or Vrabel is that they haven't been in leadership positions for very long. Meaning things like game management, staff hiring, overall strategy, etc are things that they are inexperienced with, the things that Pagano struggled with. If you haven't been DC or OC or HC for very long, sometimes those are the skills you lack. For me, one of those guys either better knock it out of the park or, like McVay in LA, be able to hire some experienced coordinators to surround themselves. Of the candidates we are linked with so far, slowly warming to the idea of McDaniels (very slowly). Of the one's not linked with us, Frank Reich looks like our kind of guy and as much as I hate to say it, Schwartz from Philadelphia as well. Should be an interesting next couple of weeks!
  7. Walker and his 2 starts

    He looks like he moves a lot better than Morrison, and he actually looks like he has some idea of where he is supposed to be on the field.
  8. Pagano Let Go

    IMHO he had to go. Never thought he was a great HC, but have to say after the first couple of years, his rosters were pretty talent poor. But just never really saw the difference that he made as a HC- we didn't have a any kind of identity as a D nor did we ever seem to figure out what we were as an O (other than have Luck pull out 4th quarter wins). Is that because he never has the kind of players he needed? You could argue that point forever. Don't think we will ever know. Onward and upward.
  9. Colts @ Bills Game Day Thread

    if Peterman can complete a pass for goodness sake I would think we could at least get something to Doyle
  10. The most sacked QB this year. You guessed it.

    Our O-Line is not good, and I think that is being generous, but I will have to agree with @Surge89 and @BlueShoe that we have not helped them much either. Of course it would probably help if we actually were able to play with the same 5 every week or even 4 out of 5. Way too many injuries. It is obvious that our communication on the line has struggled this year.
  11. After OL, ILB is the Biggest Need by Far

    You could pull a position out of a hat for the first round and come up with a need we have. We need play makers, difference makers. To me it is one of the reasons we collapse in 2nd half, no one there to make THE play when needed to close out a game- make the interception, stuff on third down, key block to spring the runner for first down, pass break up, big catch, etc. Just have a bunch of average dudes who, when come crunch time, are shown to be just average. So- edge rusher, ILB, CB, OT, but frankly just draft someone who is going to be the guy to make the play when needed to win the game.
  12. Colts Vs. Titans Game Day Thread

    Too many missed open receivers, too many penalties at the wrong time, too many missed blocks on the OL, ILB's unable to tackle if not at least 5 yards down the field.... same game, same game plan, same mistakes... same junk
  13. TJ green

    Think Hairston has this role locked up. He has 2 sacks and several QB pressures.
  14. Colts Vs. Steelers Game Day Thread

    Another chapter in the Pagano book, except it is the same stuff over and over and over again. His book sucks

    Kalis, 3rd or 4th penalty today. C'mon
