Do you really think McDaniels would take a no name RB over one that is projected to be one of the best RB's to come out of the draft in years? Mack could still easily be a part of the offense as well.

Alvin Kamara at one point was a "no name" I suppose. So my point is that there may be good RBs in this draft that can be a complement to Mack, whose last name is not Barkley. It's now up to Ballard and his scouts to find them.

I agree completely. Scouts early reports are that this draft is pretty deep in RB talent anyway.

Not saying you can't find a "good" RB in different parts of the draft. Same logic can be used for CB's, LB's and other positions that vary in depth depending on the draft. My point is that Barkley is a RB that looks to have elite-level talent, not just "good".

Haven't we had enough of our offense having to score 35-40 points a game to win? Not learning from our mistakes is one reason that Manning had one super bowl win in 14 years here. Manning goes to a team with a real defense and goes to two in three years and wins one.

I understand why you think Barkley is the real deal and have no argument with that. But till the defense is fixed along with the O-line it will be the same old Colts of the past. Almost good enough.

You say that like the Colts aren’t going to have draft rounds 2-7 and a huge amount of cap space available to fix the team’s defensive issues. Not to mention coaching that likely will better as well.

That could just as well be said of the offense as well couldn't it?  Look, Chubb is being advertised for the defense much like Barkley is advertised for the offense.  When Luck is on the field we are at the top of the league in offense. Not the same could have been said on the other side of the ball. Why? No pass rush.

Both of us have legit points of view so this back and forth has pretty much run it's course.

IMO Barkley is not going to even make it to us. I think the Browns are going to take him #1.

Denver's not going to take a QB in the 1st round....They will sign a free agent QB

They cant wait for a rookie project..they have those

I think you're right. The Jets, on the other hand, are desperate for a young QB to build around.  There is your trade partner.

    • Billy Price is likely going in round 1... or early round 2. IMO you have to take him round 2 if you want to take him.    BTW Bond didn't look good IMO. Person looked better than him. 
    • They have great talent on offense. They have Sterling Shepherd who is one of the best WR2s in the league and they just drafted Evan Engram in the first round and he will be a great mismatch weapon for them. Their problem last year was that pretty much all of their receivers got injured at some point. They were fielding WR4s and WR5s on their roster as WR1 at some point. 
    • Part of the problem with Brissett holding on to the ball too long was being scared of making mistakes. When he first started he did throw a couple of game losing picks. Not getting any help from the offensive line nor the running game did nothing for his confidence either. As the season went on he was playing not to lose games instead of playing to win. Getting leads just to see your defense not play well enough especially in forth quarters to hold a lead. All of these factors played against him. Just remember Peyton's first year?  Look, I am not calling him a Manning but it is not unusual for first year starters to struggle with the same problems we seen out of him. He was thrown into the mix and didn't even know half the playbook. Learning on the fly is not easy when you are playing at the same time. He was basically a rookie even he had started a couple of games but he was in a great system on a complete team and wasn't ask to do too much.  Brissett needs to work on his mechanics and IMO that is where Frank Reich comes into play.
    • I think with a healthy Luck, and if Barkley is there, they will feel it's easier AND quicker to build that high powered offense that they invision rather than  a very good defense.  I doubt they can achieve both in this offseason.  The Defense will have to take a backseat to the O for a while.
    • Same here. I think part of it must be smokescreens. Part of it might be one team trying to make other teams go look for faults so they can get him late in the first or early in the second?
