Colts gain a 7th from Compensatory picks

Recommended Posts

trade fodder for a move into the 5th round maybe use both sevens?

Can't trade compensatory picks. It'll probably be used on someone that the Colts were looking at bringing in as a UDFA.

Thought we would get a 6th but that's okay! I'll take it!

Of course our arch enemies get a 3rd! (New England)

That's good when you like a would be UDFA. so instead of trying to sign him you can draft him preventing some other team from getting him.

Colts receive a 7th round compensatory pick.

I don't know why but it's good to have an extra pick. Colts have now 9 picks total.

 

Merged your thread with one that was already made.

This is decent news that we got a 7th. I remember that we were supposed to get the bottom two 7ths in the projections, but if any team moved up it knocked us out. So any pick is good.

 

IMO, the best way to use this pick is to either 1.) Take the best player you wanted as a UDFA so you don't have to battle with other teams to sign him, or 2.) Sign a high risk/high reward guy that fell a round or two and hopefully get a bargain with a very low pick.

They lost Talib. And their best signing in 2014 was Revis, who had been released by the Bucs and didn't count in the comp picks formula. So they got the top comp pick. Makes sense.

Yeah I understand! It's fair! Doesn't mean I like it! :)

Is this from Burley too Seattle? If not did we get anything for him?

Seattle gave us a 6th for Burley. That has nothing to do with comp picks.

Yeah Thanks, that was a stupid question after I thought about it. Just edited my post!

It does not seem like we have a regular 7th rounder this year.

San Fran has our 7th for Cam Johnson.

We probably do not get a 7th from Dallas for Rayford...trade conditions not met.

So our only 7th is the comp.

How do these picks work? Did we not get one from Bethea?

Signing Arthur Jones probably canceled it out.

Edit: we lost Bethea, Donald Brown, and Kavell Conner, and got Arthur Jones and Hakeem Nicks which equals one draft pick.

I think we did meet the trade conditions for Rayford as he was one the roster for more than 5 weeks. Everywhere I've looked said we have 9 picks now which includes to 6th rounders and 2 7th rounders.

It's like we gained nothing.

You are completely missing the point. We didn't get a high pick or anything near it, but that's not why this is good. Grigson should use this to either 1.) Get his top UDFA or 2.) Take the best player available period that fell at any position during the draft (though this player may of fell due to character concerns or injury concerns, if he's a 4th or 5th round talent for example: take a shot). This pick will be used mainly to ensure that Grigson gets his top guy in the UDFA process without having to battle other teams for him. Just because you have a list doesn't mean you'll get all of them. It's a race to sign as many as possible, so lock up your top talent before the process begins. That's where this nifty pick comes in handy.  :thmup:

255th pick, a half-irrelevant. We can get camp bodies, or perhaps trading up to early 7th round pick. I don't expect much out of it.

Im excited about a 7th rd pick. We did a great job last year for UDFA with Harrison, Kerr, McDonald, and Tipton. Purifoy would most likely be here also if not for his off the field issues. Urlick was drafted in the 7th rd and could be a solid OT backup coming back from injury this year.

Use it on Corey Grant the more I read the more I like this kid that 4.26 40 rumors of 4.1 on one stopwatch soft hands the scat back we need.

He had a hard time seeing the field at Auburn, but he may be worth a later round pick.

 

Have you seen the article about the guys who've run the fastest times at the combine in the last few years?  Doesn't necessarily translate to football speed.  Or mean they're good players.

Don't know what you expected.. it's better than nothing.

 

It is somewhat better than nothing. I don't see its value right now... Yes perhaps e can fish out a guy with talent...and injury concerns or off-the-field issues. If we are lucky we can sniff out a talent what can help the team and makes the roster. Or we can trade up...if it is possible.

What the pick will turn out to be is the equivalent of the first UDFA pick. Whoever we have as our top UDFA, will likely be selected with that pick. It isn't much but a G.M. like Grigson is probably happy to have it. Maybe we'll use it on A.J. Johnson if the rape charges get dropped.

We can't trade compensatory picks but at least we have a chance to get someone who can contribute. We didn't get anything last year.. that's the downside of being active in free agency.

Maybe Grigs can pick up a small school pass rusher jewel with that pick.

Poor Big Ben, he knew that every time they put Archer in the backfield he was going to get blitzed.  The guy couldn't block anyone and they roll over him and crush Ben.

    • I don't believe this hogwash for a second.....he sounds like a bitter young man angry about not getting offered the money he thinks he's worth.   The class and dignity this organization has shown from top to bottom with the McDaniels incident alone tells me this is utter nonsense.
    • Yeah the Cubs hadn't won a WS in 108 years and everyone loved us outside of our fanbase until that happened. Everyone said the Cubs had the most loyal fans to put up with years of losing. Once the Cubs won it all, now everyone outside of our fanbase hates us and thinks Cubs fans are bandwagon fans . Funniest thing ever.  
    • Oh for sure they’re annoying. But they got 1 Super Bowl in 50 years. I’ll just let em enjoy it. Plus I always find rowdy celebrations that may or may not involve the consumption of horse crap to be hilarious  
    • I know I’m being unreasonable and they do deserve credit, but Eagles fans are the worst. I’m glad they beat the Pats but they are my second most hated team (after the Pats). 
    • "Two months into the 2018 NFL league year, Eric Reid, Tre Boston and Kenny Vaccaro remain unemployed, while their peers, Morgan Burnett, Tyrann Mathieu, Kurt Coleman and Marcus Gilchrist, were signed within the first week of free agency. Only Burnett and Matheiu were considered better players than Reid, Boston and Vaccaro by most outlets that published free agent rankings."
        "The 2018 NFL draft was also considered a good safety draft, a fact some used to explain why Reid struggled to garner any interest early in free agency. But only three safeties were drafted in the first two rounds of the 2018 draft. It wasn’t nearly as deep as the last year’s draft, which had no effect on the free agent safety market.   For whatever reason, this year is different. Really different. At least for Reid, Vaccaro and Boston. The other big free agents at the position found work quickly. Coincidently (or maybe not), the other big free agents haven’t been involved in anthem protests.  ( http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/264431/nfl-players-who-protested-during-national-anthem-in-week-17 ) And if they have, there is no public record of it happening. ESPN.com kept a running log of players who protested during the 2017 season...
