This is a topic that is somewhat discussed, but in very small detail and never has it's own thread. What would be your strategy in the NFL Draft as the GM of the Colts? Would you play it safe? Would you go high risk/high reward with guys like Joe Mixon? Would you just go BPA the whole draft? Would you completely focus on the defense? I'd like to know from everyone here what they would do. I believe we can have a successful draft at any position, 1-32, as long as we hit on around half our picks (3-4 this year). With us basically trading a 7th for a 4th, I think hitting on 4 picks is possible. If we do, we can more than likely gain on 20 plus teams talent-wise.
Personally, I'd build on defense and RB with safe picks I expected to succeed at the NFL level, and try to fix the team with as many BPA picks at those positions. Based on the lack of talent, I believe this particular draft would be easy for BPA and need to be exclusive. Even if we draft someone like Jamal Adams in the 1st, if he's available, you take him because of the huge talent he is. We need talent and leadership on defense. You take who you can get and build around it each additional round IMO.
Let me know what you'd do. Love to have some discussion and get some thoughts about this topic!
