Charles Davis has us picking..

37 posts in this topic

Jesse Williams DT Alabama.. Per NFL.com

Don't really like this pick.

I think we resign Fili.. Give Chapman and McKinnie a shot.. And Riccardo Matthews isn't all that bad, plays with a ton of energy.

Protecting Luck is key..

Without #12 we are back to being a 2-14 team.

I don't want a NT round 1. There is no NT that will be BPA at 24, and we can get Kwame Geathers later.

I don't like him as a DE, either.

we already have NTs what we need is o-line or safety

I wouldn't be disappointed with Williams himself, because I like his toughness, but I would be disappointed in picking that position.

Why would defensive line be disappointment? Games are won in the trenches ...plus a QB

Most want Oline but that is a pretty deep position in the upcoming draft plus Colts will likely address via free agency beforehand making it less of an urgency to spend a 1st round pick there.  Just something to consider.  As long as we focus primarily on improving our OLine and the Defense  I'll be fine with our offseason.

Ya, I don't understand everyone has us picking NT/DT round 1.... I don't see that happening. Hoping corner/safety/OL

They have us picking a DT for a couple of reasons.

1) Its a habit. Polian neglected the position so long, the pundits associate a Colts draft with the need for a DT.

2) They have forgotten about Chapman, and rightfully so. He may be the answer at NT. But how would we know? He never played a down and hardly practiced all season.

Ive said no NT all along. CB,S, or OLB in first. DL and OL is always deep. plus i have a feeling we will pick up 1 or 2 OL in FA.

OG, RT, CB, SS, DE, OLB, are all positions that could be filled at 24, depending on who is available, and which of those positions are taken care of via FA or trade prior to...or during the draft.

 

If we take another TE at 24 I'll like set a world record for nasal beer ejection.

is he excelusively a NT? Cant he play 3-4 DE? if he can i dont see the problem. we need difference makers  inside, we dont generate pressure if we are not blitzing and we still lack some push inside so if he can do it i dont see a problem

Mainly because we drafted Chapman last year.  If we go defense in the 1st, I would prefer someone who can get after the QB and Williams doesn't do that.

It wouldn't be a bad thing to see the o-line with a big upgrade before the draft ever starts, making the draft picks more of a luxury.

CB, OL, OLB in no particular order

 

I would put it as DB, OL, OLB in no particular order. It would also depend on who falls because a team reaches for a QB, which I bet some teams will. That might allow Sheldon Richardson to fall to us???

 

Very much like how Castanzo fell to us.

Grigson has the cap space this year to fill needs finally, so the O-line will get addressed. As for picking DT at 24; I don't think it will happen. Grigson is already trying to land Armstead from the CFL (which wouldn't be a bad pick up at all). I say we go with Elam, Vacarro, Cooper, or Rhodes if one should fall to us at 24, but otherwise trade down for a 2nd and 3rd. Rambo and Jenkins should be there in the third.

Yeah, i think based on last year we should have all the confidence in Grigson. He'll do the right thing. Elam or Rhodes would not be bad at that point, the other 2 I'm not that familiar with.

Keep in mind folks we are picking in the later end of rounds so guys like Brandon Jenkins, Baccari Rambo, Travis Frederick, Ricky Wagner may not be there for example by the late 3rd like some of those names will be there by the early 3rd

Jonathan Cooper is a guard who can play any of the three interior line spots and is moving up boards. Xavier Rhodes is a big CB out of Florida state that is projected mid first round. These two fit needs and wouldn't be too bad of a pickup at 24, as I am not completely sold on drafting a DT/DE in the first. Kwame Geathers is a DT we could pick up later in the rounds to help the D-line rotation.

That's why I'm wishing for a trade down for a second and third. That would open up possibilities for rounds two through four. We could pick up O-line help early second, Rambo early 3rd, and Jenkins mid third (might have to trade up for it).

rhodes would be the safest pick because u can never have too many cb's but he might go in the top 20. i think grigson will go with safety 1st round either vaccaro, elam, or reid.  there won't be any great safeties in free agency both byrd and goldston will be franchised and ss is the weakest position on the defense.

I think D-line is our weakest position, followed by CB, then S.

we will most likely sign a cb in free agency plenty are available drc, shields,jenkins, talib, and williams. our d-line is also good enough with redding, tevasue,nevis, moala and chapman should be ready for the regular season and both will start. zbikowski and lefedged are back ups neither are starter material. remember we were at our best when bob sanders was healthy ranked in top 10 in run and pass defense. bethea needs help and i think matt elam would have an immediate impact on our team just as bob sanders did for us.

I think you are either forgetting, or trying to forget that KC ran the lights out on us. D-line depth is needed, which is why Grigson is pursuing Armstead and is willing to spend money on O-line to address offensive need. I agree that Elam would have an immediate impact, but it's hard to say if he will fall to 24. As for the CBs in free agency; I think it will come down to right player, right price.

Especially since America got to see what great secondaries can do for a team (Seahawks).  I don't know if Grigson goes SS.   I  wouldn't mind Rhodes.  According to scouts, he is the most physical DB in the draft and that fits our Monster profile.

We either go OL or CB with our first pick, two biggest areas of need. Unless someone unexpected falls into our lap

You take the highest graded player. 50% of the running plays are guard to guard.

Right now we have Zero good nose tackles. Chapman SHOULD be stout, BUT...

More logical, so Likely to take a $$$ player in rd 1 of course. LT, CB, pass rusher.

your missing McKinney. I have faith in Chapman to be the guy well all want in a NT. McKinney will be fine as well if they both are fully healthly and are in shape going into camp

    • Excellent compassion there given the thin eyebrows, high cheekbones, & similar noses. Like a facial recognition match. Nice work NBGMI! 
    • Yeah it's pretty easy to make fun of Grigson at this point. It's also easy to forget the positive things he did do for the Colts. Things went south for Grigson in two seasons and it cost him his job. How much of that was due to the rumored riff between Grigson and Pagano we will more than likely never know. Reading all the negative things said about Grigson just seems more like a piling on rather than the total truth. The old saying about things are never as good as they seem and never as bad as they seem IMO holds true as far a Grigson is concerned.
    • The team as a whole has gotten so much younger compared to last year.......   Mathis is probably having trouble figuring out if he is at practice, or Daycare picking up his kids.....
    • That is a great freaking song. No doubt about it CBE.    I will always remember Adam Sandler singing 'Love Stinks" in the movie The Wedding Singer too. 
    • Cards lost, so the Standings heading into May 26th in the NL Central are: Cubs 25-21 Brew Crew 25-22 - .5 Cards 23-21 - 1 Reds 22-24 - 3 Pirates 22-26 - 4 The World Champs back on top!
