Dr. T's Annual Colts Draft Contest for 2017

15 posts in this topic

Welcome once again to Dr. T’s annual Colts Draft Contest for 2017! With seven choices this year, the rules again needed to be changed. Therefore, contestants will be asked to select an A, B, and C choice for round 1 only and A and B choices for all rounds thereafter. In round one, correctly choosing choice A merits 5 points, while correctly choosing choice B or C instead will merit 4 and 3 points respectively. In the other rounds, correctly picking an A choice in the correct round wins 4 points, while correctly picking a B choice in the correct round merits 3 points. If one of your "A" selections is chosen but in a different round than you predicted, you get 2 points, if one of your "B" selections is chosen in a different round than you predicted, you get 1 point, and if one of your "C" selections is chosen in a different round than you predicted, you get 0.5 points. In addition, you will also get to choose three free agent predictions and will get 0.5 points for any of these that the Colts actually draft. If AND ONLY IF there is no clear winner at the end of the 7 rounds of the draft, the contest will be extended for ALL participants in which everyone will also get one point for each collegiate free agent you predicted will be signed by the Colts after the draft.

Make your choices here by listing the round, choice A, B (or C only in round 1), for each round, and 3 free agent choices with the name of the player, position and school. You may also write with each choice a little blurb explaining why you chose that person.

Your Colts 18 selections this year are as follows:

 

Round 1 - #15 A, B, C

Round 2 - #46 A, B

Round 3 - #80 A, B

Round 4 - #122 A, B

Round 4 - #137 A, B

Round 4 - #144 A, B

Round 5 - #158 A, B

Free Agents: 3 choices

 

Please be a good sport and do not just copy other contestant's selections. You can easily do some research on your own, since plenty of free draft services are available on the web. You can make changes to your selections, but this can only be done before the contest is closed on Thursday at noon CST April 27, 2016, on the first day of the draft. Good luck and let the best GM win!

The Mock draft to rule this forum ;) Comes from The Danish Colts fan - aka Thorsten Kudahl ;)

I know I will not hit 100% of my first choices, but im satisfied with 90% ;)

So to kick start this contest, I'll now tell you how the colts will draft. 

 

Round 1 - #15 A, B, C

A) Forrest Lamp - OG - Luck need protection, and if Lamp is there, he might be the BPA on our Board

B) Jabrill Peppers - LB - CB wants competition, and Peppers would be a great pick.

C) Taco Charlton - DE - We need a DE, and Charlton could be the guy for us. 

 

Round 2 - #46 A, B

A) Marcus Williams - S - We have been weak at since Bob Sanders left us, Williams could be the next BOB

B) Alvin Kamara - RB - Gore is old and Kamara can block and catch in the open, great for Luck

 

Round 3 - #80 A, B

A) Jalen Tabor - CB - If on the board here at #80, its a no brainer. 

B) Tarell Basham - DE - We need a DE and Basham would be a great fit.

 

Round 4 - #122 A, B

A) Jake Butt - TE - Butt and Doyle as our TE Duo... oh yeah

B) Brad Kaaya - QB - Kaaya as Lucks backup, would be nice.

 

Round 4 - #137 A, B

A) Nazair Jones - DE/ DT

B) Isaac Asiata - G

 

Round 4 - #144 A, B

A) Carl Lawson - DE/ OLB

B) Elija Hood - RB

 

Round 5 - #158 A, B

A) Will Holden - OT

B) Rasul Douglas  - CB

 

Free Agents: 3 choices

Andreas Knappe - OT - Denmark, due to his age, he wont be drafted, and the colts need a guy like him.

Gabe Marks - WR - Competition and wr for the practice squad

Treston Decoud - S - Competition for the practice squad

 

Laugh or just laugh, its now open for debate ;)

Question if I may Dr? First time player, long time listener, how do trades affect things? So if the Colts say traded up and gave some later round picks?

For my mock I did not STRICTLY go with "who I want" I tried to be as objective and realistic as possible based on where players are valued at the moment. I took some calculated risks like teams often do, and in other spots I was "hopin' my guys are still there at my pick" thinking......something close to this in reality would make me happy, but honestly what you read below doesn't quite hit the marks I want as a fan.....If that makes any sense.

B: Hasson Reddick OLB

Round 2 - #46

B: Joe Mixon RB

Excellent question.  If trades happen before the draft, then we usually let everyone start over. But if trades happen during the draft (and that has happened many times), then the picks you made can still count if the Colts pick that person. Unfortunately, you won't get the top points for that person, because that choice would be in the a different round or selection.

Here's an example: So let's say you chose Joe Smith as selection A for #158 in the 5th round, but the Colts trade that pick for a fourth rounder and select Joe Smith anyway. You were right, but in the wrong round (or selection). So we already have a contingency for this. Unfortunately, instead of getting 4 points for an A selection at #158, you get 2 points for an A selection that is not #158. Get it?

Round 1 - #15

A: Budda Baker FS – Bob Sanders comparison...need we say more.  Longevity of safeties in the NFL playing into their mid-30s has proven return on investment thus this is our wisest selection here.  Too many other teams also in dire need at FS and chances of landing either Budda Baker or Marcus Williams in Round 2 looking more like a long shot.  Two years without a valid starting FS is unacceptable imo

B: Hasson Reddick OLB – With offseason movements no long a pressing need imo but definitely would be an upgrade.

C: Chidobe Awuzie RCB – imo one of the best right corners in this year’s draft and immediate defensive improvement.  Experienced at playing the outside, slot and even safety.

 

Round 2 - #46

A:  Kevin King RCB – Darius Butler replacement that can play FS as well.

B: Marcus Williams FS – At some point we need to address FS needs. 

 

Round 3 - #80

A: Duke Riley LB – early on my watch list and have enjoyed seeing his draft stock rise. Duke should give RILB Edwin Jackson competition as a full-time starter.

B: Joe Mixon RB – Would be a draft steal to obtain a talented running back here.  Although am holding any RB projections off until next year’s draft with futures on RB Saquon Barkley.

 

Round 4 - #122

A: Jack Butt TE – obviously a glaring need to add roster depth with a talented TE

B: Pat Elflein C/OG – offensive line depth

 

Round 4 - #137

A: Ryan Switzer Slot WR – Someone needs to push Phillip Dorsett as a full time starter.

B:  George Kittle TE – team need to add roster depth

 

Round 4 - #144

A: Lorenzo Jerome SS – imo Lorenzo has been overlooked and is one of the better strong safeties with the skill set to be a Day 1 starter.

B:  Matt Milano LILB – we need roster help on our left interior side.  Matt has a strong chance to be a full-time starter when healthy.

 

Round 5 - #158

A: Josh Carraway OLB

B: Danny Isidora ROG

 

Free Agents: 3 choices:

James Quick Slot WR (2013 MVP U.S. Army All American Bowl)

Joey Ivie NT

Marcus Oliver ILB - multiple defensive player of the game accolades

Colts have been meeting with a lot of safeties. It's not that I think they'll draft more than 1, it's just I'm not sure which one they'll draft and where so I put one in Like 3 rounds lol.
