Agree. I think with having the #18 pick they have a chance to get one of the top pass rushers. I think Pass rushers make a bigger impact but it should all depend on who is sitting there at 18 when we pick. Getting the #1 G or #2 tackle would be nice also. But, I think the chances of getting a good G are better than getting an impact pass rusher in round 2.
Honestly I think we need to address one of these needs in FA. I think Trent Cole should be cut. That saves a few million on the cap and we could use that $ to sign a solid G. There will be a few good ones on the market I think. I also think that besides Cole, there should be a couple of other FA's that should be let go and we should be able to make some significant savings on the cap.
This is definitely a critical draft. More than any other except maybe his first draft.
I don't like the Nmediche background along with the influence of his brother who will be moving with him once drafted. I don't think Grigs and Pags will pull the trigger either unless he's some how available in the 4th rd. They like to select guys who are all about football 100%. High character guys. Take a look at every single guy we drafted last season. You will see this pattern
Allen only missed 3 games in both the 14-15 seasons. I don`t think health is as big as issue than some think it is. He was severely underutilized this past season. I`m sure there will be teams looking for TE help and don`t shy away from the lack of production in 2015. Allen will probably get paid well on the open market. I don`t see the Colts retaining his services with other holes to fill. Personally, I`d take Allen over Fleener though.
