12-12-12 is a Big Day for Draft Watchers....

16 posts in this topic

Over on ESPN.com, it's a feast of draft information from Kiper and McShay....

The only problem is, it's Premium Insider info.... so, I'm somewhat reluctant to give away stuff...

Anyway...

-- Kiper has his top-25 Big Board (don't ask me why it isn't a top 32 to match a 32-team round?)

-- Kiper also has the top-5 at every position for both Seniors **and** Juniors (very important)

-- McShaw has his top 32 Big Board, but also...

-- His first 1.0 Mock Draft (he has the Colts taking Ansah, the DE from BYU)

Insider info (for ALL sports, not just NFL draft) is $40 for the year. $3.33 a month. Apologies for sounding like I'm shilling for the company -- I'm really not -- I'm just encouraging you to consider it if this is the type of info that you like.

Ok I was sitting here doing a mock draft and decided to stop because I am just going to do 1-2 more after the season and combine and with teams records and rankings not set in stone yet its near impossible to tell who will go where although I do have a general idea based on talent AND need

Elam doesn't even make his board but Vaccaro is 16? Smh.

A couple of inches taller, 12-15 pounds heavier. Even if everything else were equal, the NFL is a ***very*** size conscious league. Very. Just my speculation. I don't know enough on either to know, but it doesn't seem like an unreasonable guess.

100% agree. Nevery understood everybodies facisnation with Vacarro. I watch 3 games with vacarro and 4 with Elam, Elam is the better player hands down...but maybe I watched the wrong games. IONO.

I'm sure as Colts fans we all know a SS doesn't have to be tall to succeed, especially when he's a big hitter.

I agree, But being tall and big sure helps when delivering a big punishing hit in terms of it helps the player delivering the hit not get injured himself(obviously it doesn't prevent it completely but it helps when your not short and delivering vicious hits. 5'10" is not TO TO small but I prefer a Safety 6'- 6'2". I like Elam just not enough to pull the trigger on him in the 1st if the chance is there

Let's agree to disagree then.

national football post's russ lande has his 200 top prospects and it is waaay different than most. he use to scout in the nfl, but there is probably a reason he doesn't do it any longer.

I would be thrilled with Ansah as our pick. Our d-line is not that great. It consists of Redding and a bunch of other guys. Ansah could develop into something.

I would also consider trading down and picking up an extra 3rd round pick if possible. Jonathon Banks, the corner from Mississippi St is the real deal. He has good size and can would be a huge upgrade at the position.

    • Grigson should be talking with Denver/Cleveland
      No, I'm not giving our pick at 18 to Cleveland. We haven't had a pick that high in years. INDY stands firm & doesn't move. 
    • Which draft coverage are we watching tonight?
      I don't like spoilers but they're part of the Internet.    I personally won't be online during the draft, so I can't help. When we pick Ragland and the board goes haywire, I'll have to read about it all tomorrow.
    • Possible UDFA Wishlist
      Working with true UCFA types (shouldn't be drafted): Clay DeBord, OT, Eastern Washington.  Jamie Byrd, S, South Florida.  Darion Griswold, TE, Arkansas St. Roy Robertson-Harris, OLB, UTEP. Dwayne Washington, RB, U-Dub.  O.J. Mau, NT, Garner-Webb.  Alex Erickson, WR, Wisconsin.  Sean McEwen, C, Calgary. 
    • Which draft coverage are we watching tonight?
      This is common sense... if you get spoiled, it's your fault really.  If it is so desperately important to hear Trey Wingo or whoever the heck it will be tossing to Goodell to hear the pick, just watch the show, and after the pick, come chat about it.  Big deal.  Someone could spoil simply by watching a different TV telecast since they aren't synced either.  So is everyone supposed to wait like 10 or 20 minutes after the pick to discuss it to be safe not to hurt someone's feelings? The networks are lame for not being able to show the picks in real time because they have to squeeze in so many commercials.  Perhaps it would make a lot more sense for people to follow Twitter or Facebook or site of your choice to get real time info and discuss it that way then listen to to TV chatter whenever they're done selling tampons or viagra for the 90th time.

      Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.

      Two very different eras and very different games. I started watching the Colts when Unitas stepped in for  George Shaw. I have been a fan ever since but the move to Indy will always leave a bitter taste but it is what it is.
