  1. My mock based on the players that he has available at the time would be: 1. Edmonds 2. Evans; Bryan; Oliver 3. Smith (G, Auburn) 4. Freeman 5. Warner Not a deep WR draft, so I would focus on getting help there through FA especially after June cuts and taking some flyers in the later rounds

    Mel Kiper: Colts & Dolphins in deep discussion of trade

    I agree on that point as well, I would be good with anyone in that range. I would still look to maximize the value of the 6th pick regardless of my evaluations on the prospects.

    I can see this argument, if you are risk averse, then yes you get your package now and don't worry about the craziness of draft day. I would move off of 6 for 11, Miami 2nd rounder, Miami 4th rounder. I would ask for additional but that would be my bare minimum. You have to look at it from Miami's perspective as well, if they would make the move now then they are taking the most risk so the cost would not be as high today. However the longer we wait then the risk seems to switch over to the Colts. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. This could also be an attempt by another team to get Buffalo to trade higher than 6.

    Totally agree and understand your context now, the pick would be more valuable on draft day than it is right now, I agree. Also, you could have the possibility of multiple teams looking to trade up to get that last quarterback on draft day which increases the value even more.

    That chart goes out the window when QBs are concerned. We got way more value than the 3rd was worth from the Jets according to that chart. I don’t think that chart plays as much as it used to

    Dream Mock?

    This would be great, but I question Ridley and Green being there but those are possible.

    Edmunds pros and cons

    My thoughts exactly, start him as WLB and let him learn then shift to MLB as he matures. It would also be easier to take advantage of his blitzing skills if he were a WLB.

    Chris Ballard arrives at ND Pro Day

    I really think he is a RT I don’t think he handles speed well enough for the blind side.

    Chris Ballard arrives at ND Pro Day

    The hype is large but his floor is high too. He will not single handedly make the line unstoppable but he is a plug and play guy. Who at worst is an above average starter. Guys that have his measurables, technique, and demeanor do not come around often which is why the expectations are high. But yes he hasn’t proven anything at the NFL level yet.

    Chris Ballard arrives at ND Pro Day

    I watched all of their games as well. The issue was Wimbush couldn't throw accurately. By about the third game of the season, defenses were scheming to put 8 or 9 in the box to stop the run. NFL lines can't run on those fronts so yeah you are being a little hard on them. Against LSU and Michigan St, they averaged over 4.5 yards a carry. There flat out was not many times that they needed yards and ran it behind Nelson and McGlinchey that they didn't get what they needed. Stanford and Miami held them in check, but the only game that the running game was completely shut down was Georgia and they played in the NC game so they did that to a lot of teams.

    What are you talking about? ND averaged in the top 10 in the NCAA for rushing yards this past year. The line won the Joe Moore award that goes to the most dominating NCAA OL. There really was not much that was disappointing about the ND OL line last year.

    Tailback Damien Williams to visit Colts Tuesday

    He seems to fit the mold of Dion Lewis who they were interested in as well, hopeful that he signs.

    Colts sign Eric Ebron (merge)

    Up to 15. Doubt that is guaranteed, you are also overstating how bad the guy has been.

    According to reports he is coming in tomorrow. He visited the chiefs today

    Chris Ballard’s Moneyball (BallardBall)

    Exactly and then when you consider that the book and the movie barely touched on the most important aspect of those A's teams......the pitching, then the parallel crumbles even more. Those A's teams won because for the outstanding starting pitching they had not due to Moneyball.
