Manti Te'o and Jarvis Jones

Middle linebacker is probably the last thing this team needs to address on defense. Teo would be an awful pick.

Teo will be there I bet but we should be targeting a OLB/DE or Guard or RT, Jones should also be gone.

Werner

Okafor

Lemonier

Jeffcoat

Devin Taylor

Brandon Jenkins

Could all be there, now Jenkins was an absolute beast pre injury but he is out for the season and will either come back back for his senior year to try and improve his draft stock for the 2014 draft or come out and probably fall to the 2nd or third round but Jenkins had a breakout season in 2010. A first-year starter at right end, he led Florida State in sacks. Jenkins notched 13.5 sacks with 21.5 tackles for a loss. He had five multi-sack games and was voted the team's MVP.

I'd look hard t this guy

If we pick around the 15 to 20 area, we should go with Werner, Dion Jordan, or Warmack. Taylor is gonna be like a 4th round pick. Jenkins would be a steal in the 3rd.

I would add Dion Jordan (Oregon) and Demontre Moore (Texas A&M) to this list too as they are rising up draft boards. There should be quite a few OLB/DE prospects.

Don't be surprised if we take Marcus Lattimore in this draft. He is injured and may fall in the draft. I've heard from local and national sports press that this guy is in a class by himself personally and professionally. He is the answer to our running back situation and he is a Colt type of player.

not sure if your serious to be honest, I mean I do like Lattimore but if Grigson takes him in the first over an O Linemen or D Linemen or OLB or even Corner then Grigs should be fired before he even gets the chance to make his next pick

I think that he meant in the 5th to 7th rounds.

Coltsguy is right.

Either way, he's not entering the draft. He's gonna redshirt and recover, and enter a draft in the not so near future.

Last word I got on Lattimore was that he's coming back to school, sitting out next year to rehab and hopes to play again in 2014. Then, come out in the draft for 2015.

That's not locked in stone, but it seems reasonable for now..... we'll know for sure in Mid-January.

What if Te'o is still available, could he be converted to a SS? He would be a killer at that position, if he has the speed. He lost weight this year and is playing faster. He is a ball hawk at ILB, 7 picks this season. I think he could play SS and decleat some RBs and WRs...he would be an upgrade over Zibby for sure, lol. Think Bob Sanders with durability

Te'o will be a top 5 pick. He is an inside LB and always will be.

    • I have to agree with this sentiment.    I was worried they/he rushed back from injury too soon. I hope it's not career ending. Even though he was a division rival, I've always liked how he carried himself on and off the field. I wish him the best.
    • But he didn't, despite the narrative.    Grigson drafted 4 receivers in 4 years: Hilton (3rd), Brazill (6th), Moncrief (3rd), Dorsett (1st).    In the same time period, he drafted 6 OL: Anderson (7th), Thornton (3rd), Holmes (4th), Mewhort (2nd), John (7th), Good (7th).   Then this year, he drafted 4 more OL, including Kelly in the 1st. In five years, that's 4 receivers, 10 OL. Even "early" picks -- which to me is first and second rounders -- is 2 OL, 1 WR. Add in the third round, and it's still 3 OL and 3 WRs.   Grigson largely failed to fix the OL for four years, no question. But it's not because he didn't try, and it's definitely not because he spent too many picks on receivers. 
    • I worry about many things, but Dorsett isn't one of them.
    • Wouldn't a PS player have to remain on the team for 3 weeks? So when Jones came back next week someone else would have to be cut
    • In theory, yes, the Colts at their best could probably beat any team in the league. The offense would have to avoid mistakes, the defense would have to tackle well, and they'd probably still need some help from the other team in the form of missed opportunities (Rivers missed 3-4 TD throws on Sunday). They could get hot, stay healthy, and knock some teams off. It would be awesome if they were humming in December and January and made it to the Super Bowl, but don't hold your breath.    In practice, this year's Colts are a second tier team, at best. The OL is a work in progress (positive things are on the way, I believe, but the protection is still leaky and the run blocking is even further off), the QB and receivers aren't consistently on the same page. The defense can't cover the middle and can't consistently rush the passer. The coaching staff hasn't proven that they have the ability scheme and strategically minimize these weaknesses AND maximize the obvious strengths. In fact, in the biggest test of this ability -- late in the Denver game -- the coaching staff blew it.   If the Colts were able to play to their full potential every single week, and stay healthy, and if the coaching staff pushed the right buttons every game and in every situation, you might have a 13-3 team with a first round bye. But even then, you're probably looking at the 2010/2012 Falcons; that team even won a playoff game, but wasn't a great team, and quickly regressed (4-12 in 2013, a year after going to the NFCCG). This team appears more likely to play below expectations than to exceed expectations, sadly. Just not enough playmakers, especially on defense.   The hope is that the last two draft classes keep going in the right direction, and you get another two draft classes that pan out. Doesn't mean the Colts aren't trying to contend in the meantime, but it's going to be a couple years before the Colts will be considered one of the top teams in the league. And that's assuming things go well and the staff does the right things over the next two offseasons, which isn't a given.
