Any "I know a guy story" is going to get that type of feedback, unless the person has previously broken inside news before. There are also a handful of forum members with enough proven knowledge and reputation they could get away with it with LESS flack, but even they would receive some push back.
With all due respect you don't know who the Colts will pick. I agree Barkley is the best RB on the board but that automatically mean the Colts take him. The same thing could be said of Chubb. We get a pass rusher it then in turns makes the whole defense better. It would have a bigger effect on this team than a great RB IMO.
