  1. Past hour
  2. 2 thoughts: 1. I don't really see any WRs worth a 1st round pick in this draft, although I'm sure someone will pull the trigger. I'd be ok with one at 59. 2. (And bear with me), In the 3 "win or go home" games at the end of last year (at Tenn, at Houston, at KC), Andrew Luck threw 14 passes to Dontrelle Inman. Inman caught 13, for 187 yards and 2 TD. I know Inman's career has been a mixed bag, but he stepped off the plane last year and immediately became the 2nd-best WR on the team, and it wasn't close. In a relatively short time, he developed great chemistry with Luck, and I'd love to see them get a chance to continue together. I know we're looking for youth & upside, but dang it, this team could win a SB THIS YEAR. I know he's not currently on the roster, but I truly believe if they don't re-sign him, they'll regret it. (JMO).

  4. Here's the audio of the press-conference: https://www.colts.com/audio/4-22-chris-ballard-pre-draft-press-conference-audio
  5. Would be leaning back on a Sunday morning sipping a cold beverage, listening to Cherry Bomb by John Mellencamp grinning if this happened. Say yeah yeah yeah...
  6. It sounds to me like they have analytics guys doing some baseline work, but my impression is the rest of the process isn't really all that sophisticated.
  7. The character is just one piece of the puzzle. Drafting a player with question marks is one thing, bringing him in and making him your second highest paid player (ever) is another.
  8. I can sort of see the sense in this move. At the very least gathering information. I've been saying all along I didn't feel that strong about the pass rushers in this draft class who would be available at our pick. Not too many outright game wreckers.
  9. Love Ballard's tease at the end. "I'll see you all Thursday... or maybe not, maybe Friday".
  10. I think Ben Banogu at 59 would be a better choice than trading a first rounder for Clark (and I think 59 is a reach for him). Really hope we don't trade for him.
  11. Today
  12. I agree overall but worth pointing out that it was Ed Dodds that did most of the leg work on Clark when Seattle decided to draft him: https://www.thenewstribune.com/sports/nfl/seattle-seahawks/seahawks-insider-blog/article26343166.html It's probably dangerous to extend the same leniency to Ballard, but at least we know that one of our main execs is one of the people that gave the OK to Seattle when they were drafting Clark.
  13. Lmao nothing about the draft is as simple as you make it seem. You’re going to hit and miss regardless of where you take a S or DL
  14. Press-conference is about to start. Here's the link if you want to watch: https://www.colts.com/video/live-chris-ballard-discusses-upcoming-draft
  15. Yeah, cue Nyheim Hines from pre-season and Ebron's drops, did they produce well for us to be effective? I am confident with this coaching staff to make the most out of the talent that they agree to coach.
  16. Brissett and pick No.34 for Clark. j/k (just thought I'd say it before someone brought Brissett up)
  17. This doesn't add up, IMO. Clark has a troubled past, with multiple questionable events and comments through the years. It would cost at least a top 50 pick, maybe more, to trade for him. And he wants a long term contract for at least $20m/year; reports are he wants at least what Demarcus Lawrence got. Doesn't seem like a Ballard kind of situation. I believe the Colts reached out to the Seahawks to find out what they want, and maybe they even asked for permission to talk to Clark's agent to find out his contract demands, but I'd be very surprised if the Colts traded for Clark, knowing his history and his contract demands.
  18. I think you're right about it being a draft day trade with whatever teams that may trade for Clark. I would want to see my options first before pulling the trigger on a trade like this. I wouldn't be against a possible trade with the Colts but I wouldn't bet on it either. Clark turns 26 this year and is probably going to demand a monster contract.
  19. You don't worry about paying top dollar for top tier production, especially at Edge, and QB..... that said, who knows if Ballard will trade for him. If it is a move that clearly helps get a round or 2 deeper in the playoffs, you'll most likely love Irsay paying Clark a premium. Guy's only 25, if they think he's clean and past his issues, and they believe he's their guy, lock him up for 4 or 5 years, and the huge amount today, will be average halfway through the deal.... and you are out maybe the 2 you got from NY?
  20. Hard pass on Clark unless it's a 2nd. I'd take a chance on Sweat though.
