Funk's Mock Draft 2.0

14 posts in this topic

 

1. Hassan Reddick (ILB/OLB)- I like him as a potential 3-down type ILB, who can also be moved all over the place to help with pass rush.

2. Gareon Conley (CB) - One of Conley, Moreau, Awuzie, Wilson, K. King will be there and I'd take any of them. That's a great feeling...

3. Isaac Isiata (OG)- We need a guard and this guy seems like a great value option. Very strong, and has raves for his on-field effort and work ethic.

4. Marlon Mack (RB)- The best chance at a 3 down back we're probably going to get this late. I like Perine and some others, but Mack has won me over today.

4. George Kittle (TE)- Very exciting prospect to add to our TE group.

4. John Johnson (S)- Still seems weird he's projected this low but whatever. Solid prospect who seems like he has the polish to possibly go in an usurp Green's role year 1.

5. Elijah Lee (ILB)- The right kind of raw prospect you hope to find a good value in at this point in the draft. He's got the size and speed to do the job, has solid tackling skills and showed coverage potential. I would love to bring this guy in to continue beefing up our LB core with depth and potential.

I prefer Moreau over Conley and I'd rather take another defensive player in the 3rd over a G. Other than that, pretty good.

I feel like if you're going to take a guard, it has to be Lamp round 1. Anyone else isn't an immediate starter and is battling with Haeg for the starting RG spot.

Completely agree. Outside of Lamp or maybe Feeney there are no Gs in this draft that are instant starters.

 

And I don't want to use a 1st or 2nd to grab either of them at this point with our defensive holes.

Yeah Lamp is a last choice option. But if we were to get a guard, he's the one I'd want because he can upgrade the line immediately. I don't see Asiata coming in and doing that.

Why? Just curious. About Fabian over Conley.

To be honest it's kind of a coin flip based off of what you like in a corner.

 

Moreau is very strong for a corner with good size, has the frame to be effective in run support as well. He is excellent at the line when it comes to press man coverage, which we play a lot of. Tested very well at the combine. His biggest worry is his lack of ball production, and his technique in coverage needs some work, but with the right coaching I think he's a solid prospect.

 

Conley again is a solid athlete. He's good in his coverage from press. His turnover production is better than Moreau. My worry with him is the stiffness in his backpedal and transitions.

 

It comes down the fact that it is easier to coach coverage technique rather than overcome body stiffness. Just my opinion though. I wouldn't be unhappy with either of them come draft night.

No edge rusher.  other than that, not bad.

Fair concern. My issue with edge rusher is that everywhere the Colts draft naturally in this draft I just don't like the value of the edge rushers there. It's still a pretty big need, yes, but at least for now, i'm going to try and take the approach that it's going to take a couple years to get our defense where it needs to be. I think there will be a good value OLB in the second available, but round two is magic land for CBs and I don't think we should miss out on that since we didn't address getting a starting caliber corner at all in FA. UNLESS we try to package some picks or give away future picks to move up into the early 3rd where I believe a starting caliber CB will fall. Lastly, I think Reddick can be capable of rushing inside or out so it's not like this draft doesn't address pass rush at all at least.

Very fair point and it does have me rethinking it. My choice came down to a thinking which was that, for a guard, I felt getting Asiata there would be a great value, and we could still use more depth on the o-line, but in hindsight that 3rd round pick could definitely be used to find an immediate upgrade rather than a depth/competition pick.

I am good with Reddick as an ILB, whether rushing on delay blitz or back in coverage.  Not high on him as an edge rusher.

 

I believe there will be an edge rusher after the 1st round with value.  Might not be a day 1 starter, but will be able to contribute during the season.

I think they have to go more into the secondary. I'd probably loose 2 of those offensive choices and replace with another CB and DL.

    • Of course he wont, i just seen a TON of missed tackles come from that SS position.
    • There's an old axiom in the REAL leadership trade - "you can come in tough and ease up over time, but, you can't come in easy and then try and get tough."  People see right through it.
    • Yeah, the slow starts are dreadful. Just makes you wonder what in blue skies are we doing in practice?    Can't rely on Andrew to bring us back every game. Chud is also to blame. He's gotta get better and more creative at play calling    I like Green Bay's play calling how they move everyone around. Dorsett should be our Randall Cobb. Put him in the backfield, in motion for jet sweeps. The kid has speed, use him everywhere until we actually trade him if they still are trying to trade him 
    •   She pushed him and then slapped him across the face.   Maybe you could argue somewhat from a moralistic prospective that his response was excessive.   But again, in this country people don't tend to see it that way if it's a guy vs. a guy even if there is a massive size difference.  If a guy starts something, people will usually cheer if he gets pounded for it.  So arguing that isn't in keeping with how we usually view these things.   Thing is that ultimately she hit him first, he struck back ending her violent attack.  That doesn't make him a monster.  At worst that makes him human.  Quite frankly if you ask me he's a person who was defending himself and his dignity.  Slapping another person across the face is not just a physical attack it's an insult on their dignity.                      
    • I buy his change in attitude, it's refreshing.

      But my problems, or I guess my questions, with Pagano are more just about his actual coaching ability. He can change his ways all he wants but we'll see if he's actually able to coach this team up.
