I guess that depends on where Denver ultimately drafts

I'd love to be corrected by having McCaffrey drafted at 15 after Denver trades with us.

I don't want rb.   But I think he is the 2nd best back in the draft

Only way I would draft a RB in the first two rounds is if we trade back and get another 2nd. Draft Lamp, Ramczyk or Dawkins in the 1st-2nd and then a RB in the second (McCaffery, Cook, Mixon-I understand that they may not be there in the second round). I would have to have a stud Guard or Tackle first.  I am tired of drafting the flash w/o first solidifying the thunder.

 

Cheers

His value to the Colts is 0 at 15th plus he is overrated 

Some say he is the best RB in the draft and I agree with them.

Doesn't matter..... Elway will just say "you don't have to play for them, I didn't".... "come to Denver".

The Indianapolis Colts are not even close to what the Baltimore Colts were back when Elway was drafted.

This kid wasn't even born and more than likely has no clue about the Baltimore Colts.

Id be very upset if the Colts take a glorified slot WR at #15. 

If you think all he is is a glorified WR then you are very lacking in seeing football skills.

If you really think that then yes you are high 

I don't get high little boy. Post your "opinion" when the draft starts and see for yourself how smart you are on this player.

Who has said he is the best back in the draft?

One of the hosts on GMFB said it this morning.  Don't remember his name... (not Burleson or Schrager... the other guy).

 

Edit:  But he was doing a fake war room segment trying to justify picking McCaffrey to the Chargers at #7 soo... take it with a grain or 10 of salt.

I haven't seen anyone rate him above Fornette

The top RB's all have a neg, like all players.There is no one RB that can compete with McCaffrey's versatility. Several commentators urge teams to pick him over the competition.

Articles on Colts.com are already suggesting Turbin wants and might get  more of a prominent role in our backfield.  He is $$$ as a short yardage back. CM would be a nice compliment to him.

I agree. It's not a matter of who is the best but who will be of greater value. Example, Walter Payton can't compare to some of the statistics of other former RBs but his value was obvious. The consensus on McCaffrey is he will be gone easily in the first round. If he is still there when the Colts pick comes up I hope they grab him regardless of their secondary needs.

You don't grab an RB in the 1st round to be a complementary back to Robert Turbin. You draft a 1st round RB to be like Ezekiel Elliott and be a franchise back that gets you 20 carries a game and helps lead the offense. If we took Fournette at 15, I'd be fine with that, McCaffrey would be a joke that high. He should be completely off the board at that point at 15 no matter who the first 14 picks are.

Cook and Fornette are better "runners" but special teams, slot receiver and running back put McCaffrey above them in terms of what you get for your money. Mixon will not go the first round and Cook also has baggage so Fornette and McCaffrey in the first round easily if not in the first 10 picks with Cook close behind,

It's not that either/or. My problem with RBs is positional value, as influenced by career longevity, contribution to wins, and replacement value. 

 

In McCaffrey's case, I don't think he's a prototypical RB, so I think he can have a longer career, and influence the game in more ways than just carrying the ball. But there should still be questions about his value relative to similar rated prospects at other positions.

I think of it like this, if you have a chance to draft Edge you do it, but if you had to choose between Edge and Freeny, it's clear you go Freeny

I think Cook is more like Edge, McCaffrey is more like a much better Darren Sproles.

Don't see that at all.  You can make a case that he isn't the best pure RB in the draft but saying he won't be an asset in the NFL is really off-base.  His skill set translates directly to what the NFL is looking for.  He can play multiple positions and has a quickness to him that will allow him to create separation from the backfield or the slot.  He will be a match-up nightmare for defenses and dictate coverages.

 

Tim Tebow he is not.

    •   Overall, an excellent post, but I really want to focus on this part. Though even if Barkley didn't have this issue, I still wouldn't take him at #3.. I don't think RB is worth it.   Barkley doesn't hit lanes inside hard, with violence of someone like Gurley who was just savage at it in college. He tries to bounce outside, to an open space, where he is absolutely fantastic so it's understandable. Just as a pure runner, I don't think he's the best RB prospect to come out in recent years. If the hole isn't there inside, he has bad tendency to stop moving his feet. As you said, can it be coached out of him? And why does it happen. Is he little soft? Overcompensating for bad O-line? Or something else that can be coached out of him?   College football is different than NFL and though Barkley obviously had bad OL, the decision making before LOS for RB is crucial imo. That's one thing where prospects can be evaluated equally, no matter what scheme, competition or OL talent they run behind.   So.. Maybe Barkley won't be bell-cow back? But more like Reggie Bush? Reggie Bush didn't become a great runner until later in his career when his athleticism had declined. How soon will it happen with Barkley? However, there is no denying his athleticism and talent as a receiver. So the ideal usage for him might be more similar to how many scatbacks are used.. But he would probably be even bigger mismatch in the passing game and better runner than best scatbacks in the game today (Lewis, White, Riddick etc.). Or just bigger, more athletic and better pure runner than McCaffrey. I'd actually be more willing to use high pick on that kind of player than RB like Gurley, Elliott and Fournette.
    • It's a different situation because they didn't have the quarterback. We (hopefully!) do.   Look at the way the league is trending. It's all about building a defense that can limit the opposition or having a quarterback who can elevate the play of those around him. If you have both them you're basically the Pats.    Between 2011 and 2016 we spent only 5 of a possible 18 high draft picks on defense (with 4 of those being 3rd rounders!!!) and we've basically been swimming again at the tide of the NFL.   I've never seen a fan base so occupied with offense. It's time to look at what the Championship teams are doing and replicate it.
    • Unless they value the top 3 QBs exactly the same it would be stupid to take Saquan 1st overall and be left with 2nd or 3rd choice at QB. 
    •   Thanks, I was wondering whether they were using this or not. Seems to be the perfect tool to train a QB to pick up different defensive schemes etc. Could be good for defense players too.   I would strap it to Green and hope that it would eventually increase his awareness!
