Draft and free agency resources

34 posts in this topic

This section is starting to heat up again. Lots of us do mocks and talk about potential draft picks and free agents and whatnot, and we usually sticky some of the favorite sites and stuff. I'm just going to put them all in this thread. For those I forgot about, post a comment to this thread, and I'll update this post.

I was going to ask you to this after next week's game is over....    so, you beat me to it!

 

Nicely done.

 

Good to see all this material appear.

 

It seems to me we have more people than ever interested in this....    looking forward to some good discussion and debate over year four of building the Colts!

 

Thanks again!          :thmup:

It's a site where they do mock drafts round by round for all the teams at once. Once it gets closer to draft time they start putting write ups for the prospects and reasons they project certain people to certain teams. I think they update it weekly.

I know i'ts still way to early to come up with any sort of mock, but I got a kick out of this site having us drafting Gurley in the first round and then Abdullah in the second and then three OTs in the next four rounds.  Just goes to show that you can't really take these sites seriously until it gets closer to draft time (or at least after the combine).

Yeah I saw that as well lol. The picks get sensible around Combine time. But I also use it for name reference. When I see a prospect I don't know about on there, I usually go and look them up. If nothing else, its great as a Prospect database of some of the players most likely to be drafted.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I use these sights as well.  There's only a couple that, grade-wise I give a bit of weight to, CBSsports and NFL.com, but when I see a guy that's all over the place on people's big boards/prospect rankings, I'll watch the tape and figure it out myself.  My favorite is looking at the guys who are slotted as 5th round and below.  I started the OPC prospects article last year and I hope to keep up with it and get a rolling list going every year.  The plan is, for each class I do, do a follow up blog/post to see how those guys are doing.  So by the time 2016 rolls around, I'll be doing the 3 year followup on the guys I wrote about in the 2013 draft class plus writing on a handful of guys in the 2016 draft class

Question, how do you put tags in the topics you start (like your weekly grade threads)? Is there a way I can do that or is that just a mod thing?

When starting a new thread, there's a field just below the title for tags. I don't think it's a mod only thing; I think I've seen others use tags also. I'm on mobile now so I can't check.

Does anyone ever use http://walterfootball.com/?Kinda retro website in terms of style but has a useful database of mocks. 

 

I visit it from time to time, just like a lot of websites. They seem to be a little slow so far this year...

FYI...

 

 

The Colts picks for the first 4 rounds are....

 

1-29,    2-61,   3-93,    4-129

 

The rest won't be know until the NFL puts out the compensatory picks, but the Colts do have two #6's,  ours and Seattle's.

I think compensatory picks start at the end of the third round, so it's likely that the 4th round pick is in the 130s.

I think compensatory picks start at the end of the third round, so it's likely that the 4th round pick is in the 130s.

 

To the best of my knowledge,  there are only 4 compensatory picks in the 3rd round.    I've gone through the years and never seen more than 4.

 

So,  the third round ends with pick 100.   (96+4)  The only time it hasn't is when picks have been forfeited for whatever reason.  Then the round ends a little shy of 100.

 

But typically, the first pick of the 4th round is pick 101.     That would put the Colts 4th round pick at 129,.

 

Now,  we may have changes....   the Pats could (and should IMO) get docked a pick for deflategate,  and another team (which escapes me right now)  might also lose a pick and that could mean less than 100 after 3 rounds.

 

Don't know what will happen....   but I'm mostly (but not entirely) confident that 4 compensatory are what is added to the end of the 3rd round.

 

(Sorry,  this got a little long winded...)

Ah, got you. I hadn't done the math, was just assuming that you were taking the pick placement of the first four rounds with no compensatory picks accounted for. You were already ahead of me.

I don't know how the formula works, but if it's true that there's a pattern of no more than four comp picks at the end of the third round, then your projection is probably safe. Overthecap.com projects three at the end of the third which would put us at 128 in the fourth.

Not sure if you guys know about this or if you just decided it was irrelevant, but Fanspeak also has a free agency mock simulator in addition to their draft simulator. Uses OverTheCap data for doing signings, cuts, etc.

From our friend SMonroe over on the Colts page....    here are our picks....

 

 

n case anyone didn't know, here's our draft order:

 

1 - 29

2 - 61

3 - 93

4 - 128

5 - 165

6 - 204

6 - 206

7 - 244

7 - 255

 

 

And, wouldn't you know it....   I've been saying for a while that most years there are 4 compensatory picks at the end of the 3rd round which puts the three round total at 100 picks.     Well,  this year,  there appears to be just 3 comp picks so the three rounds ends at 99.

 

This could change depending on possible penalties to New England for Deflategate,  Cleveland, for Textgate, and Atlanta for Musicgate.

Do the Colts have a 7th Rd pick?

 

We have two....   both late in the round.    Our pick is 244, the comp pick we just got is 255.  

 

The draft has 256 total picks barring any penalties to any teams.
