And they took Hurst.

 

This stings a little.

 

Doesn't he have a heart condition?

This one hurts. Hurst was my big draft crush this year and we traded away the 5th round pick that could have gotten a first round talent. I assume he was off our board anyway, but I'll be following his career closely.

Looks like we picked up an extra pick. I wonder if we will take WR, if Grigson was around he would've already had that taken care of in Round 1 :lol:

Whyyyyyyyy!?

 

Huh?

 

We need a WR...   we need a CB ...   and we need more if everything else...

 

So we still have two picks in the 5th...   and now we have a 6th and we still have our 7th...

Hurst’s heart condition had literally all but two teams take him off their boards and people are upset we didn’t take him? Okay.

This tells me the Colts didnt like Hurst's medicals. If he turns into a great player this will be heavily scrutinized.

Hurst is likely off our board completely...

 

His heart condition pushed him to Day 3 for some teams, but for many other teams he was removed completely from draft boards.

 

Both NFL Network and ESPN reported this...

Good! Now we can get some CBs and WR or vise versa. Maybe another LB

Yeah, thats just it, he was passed on 139 times and he's a first round talent. That speaks volumes on what teams think. Im not saying you shouldnt ever take guys with issues, but the single greatest talent any player can have is availability, and teams just couldnt be sure.

Hate to tell everyone but if we need a wr and a cb so bad that we are taking them in round 5 and 6 odds are next year we will still need a wr and a cb..

Mayock was saying his condition is similar to Geathers.  I hope he does well, but I wouldn't have risked anything more than a 6 or 7.  Too risky and we need contubutors now.

Yeah. I just think the 5th round is an appropriate round to take a risk.

 

Obviously I’m not a doctor , nor have I read his medical, but I like the guy.

 

But, we move on. I’ll be rooting for the kid regardless.

Yeah, I definitely get it. Was just a personal favorite of mine. On to the next one,  haha.

I understand supporting and being a fan of Hurst, hope he can have a long career, but personally I’m glad we passed on him and got some extra picks in the process.

I’d rather Ballard take a player that fails based on other reasons. A pre-examined medical condition is something he knows now, so I understand passing on him. Hope the best for Hurst though as well.

The odds of any 5th, 6th, or 7th round pick playing any significant role, let alone even making the team, are pretty low.

 

To get an extra pick when a proven first round player with health issues in Hurst is on the board?

 

I don't get it.  If he gets well?  It's a huge steal.  If he doesn't? Then he is just like most other picks taken where he was.  Barely playing or cut.

 

Once again, Ballard goes conservative and goes for depth instead of actual starters.

 

How many sure fire starters can we say came from this draft?  2?   Nelson and the LB?

 

With THIS MANY selections in the early rounds.

 

Sorry, but imo he has totally blown this draft.

Of course not but at this point in the draft odds are they aren’t going to be week 1 starters so at this point you draft according to bpa not need.

Giants took one of my favs right before Hurst - Canes Dt rj McIntosh 

I wonder if a guy goes off the board right before our pick this late in the draft that we don’t look to trade back to regroup.

Watch out for Griffin, I know he only has 1 hand but I have a feeling he could make an impact at LB. He still Tackles well and his Speed is unreal.
