  1. I tried to make out the first name on the blurred board. If you squint it kind of looks like: Queequeg South Pacific university Harpoonist i could be wrong.

  3. In light of the Buckner trade... the medical comments seem to tell us something about Kinlaw.... and I would think certainly apply to Tua as well. For me... this also says something about Ballard and the scouting team’s assessment of Jordan Love as a # 13 pick.... that is, that they either never had him rated that high OR that they feel he’s a Top 10 lock but not worth the price of moving up for. Any way we slice it... however a team spends a #13 pick should result in the surest thing possible. And Ballard’s own words were that we got “an elite player at a

  4. The Strip Sack Master King Robert Mathis joins For the COLTure Podcast and talks about his playing days teammates and his pass rushing consulting business. Towards the end he also has a piece on Turay starting at 27:15 mark. Interesting listen as Mathis was one of the guys that scouted and found Turay and brought him to Ballards attention. Also mentioned that Turay will be the sack champion in 1-2 years and has the talent to break the all time NFL sack record for a single season! What do you guys think? Also has thoughts on Houston and the D as a unit. https://www.youtube.com/watch

  5. Assuming they were talking about any one player is just an uneducated guess. This piece was edited so we don't have a clue on who, when or what order things were talked about. I don't guess or take for granted anything said before any draft.

  6. This is just going to be a quick mock draft without trades. I'll explain each pick briefly. Round 2a.) Denzel Mims WR: I believe he'll be here if the Packers pass on him. Great contested ball receiver, and the perfect compliment to Hilton and Campbell. Round 2b.) Cole Kmet TE: If the Bears pass on him right before us, he should slide. Best TE in the class, great measurables, and a Gronk clone to replace Ebron. Round 3.) Jalen Hurts QB: I'm really starting to warm up to him. Great athlete, very strong, and can be a starter in the NFL. Sit him behind Rivers fo

  10. No sweat. It is not a full time job, and life happens. You have done a terrific job so far. I am just trying to get through a crappy day at the office so far that started off very rocky in the morning, but it is one of those kinds you know a problem is lingering around the corner. No news is good news in my profession, but then you are dreading client issues.

  11. Couple things. Ballard inherited a very depleted roster and had to draft to fill gaps. He couldn't just take the best available player in each round. Now that the roster is more solid, the next few drafts will be more telling. The Cowboys typically get more pro bowlers because of their name and popularity. If the Colts and the Cowboys both have a player with identical stats, it will be the Cowboy making the pro bowl.

  12. He did look great before getting hurt. Hes a pressure machine in obvious passing situations. Houston, Buckner, and a healthy Turay is going to be nasty.

  13. Thanks for pointing it out, I was pulling my hair because I thought he was selected long back but didn't come up in search in recent list of 1-200 picks. I thought a spelling mistake was not coming up in search, Problem is the drafted players list is not updated with Antonio Gibson for #136 pick.

  14. I was mistaken, it said the 3rd round, not day 3. Still, the TE class is clearly the worst position of the entire 2020 class. The TE’s need a lot of work

  15. His blocking needs a ton of help, and sometimes you’ll find guys that get past that, but most of the time those guys who are pure receiving tight ends have elite physical traits. Kmet is not good enough to be a weapon, and he’s also not good enough to be a good blocker. He’s a very average TE, and it’s saying something that he’s still the top TE in the class

  16. I'm not a big fan of Claypool. I've watched him recently, I don't think he gets open or creates separation, he doesn't have much wiggle to him, he's an inconsistent catcher, and while he's big and long he isn't refined at using those gifts. I like that he's physical, he seems like a hard worker, obviously very athletic, and with his tools you have a lot to work with. But he's not someone I have to have. I definitely don't think he's ready to be a major producer on Day 1.

  17. I would hate Kmet at 34. IMO, and according to a lot of other people, this draft could go to day 3 with every TE still on the board. This is quite possibly the worst TE class talent-wise of the 21st century. Kmet is the best, but he has a ton of issues of his own. Claypool or Pittman would be nice at 44, but at 34 you have to look at CB or something else IMO.

  21. With the final Colts pick in the 2020 Gavin Mock Draft, Indianapolis has no real direction left to go, so upside is the answer here. Though he isn't on most draft boards, he is eligible and a great player. Though his film is against lesser competition, he dominated that level so much that he should make the transition to the NFL, and has a lot of upside with it. With the 209th pick, the Indianapolis Colts select: Derrek Tuszka, DE, NDSU A low risk, high reward player, Tuszka should be a quality depth piece at worst and has the tools and potential to develop

  22. Chinn is a SS, he’s at his worst in the deep part of the field. Hooker is still on the hot seat, but Chinn isn’t coming in to replace him

  23. He'd be a big time pickup on a motivated one year deal. He's a great player; just not the sack master he was expected to be. If the Colts could get him at $16m for a one year deal, that's worth it. He might just earn a big time deal and stay a Colt, and with the expanded cap, he could be affordable. You never know. That's a far cry from the 5 year, $120+ million dollar deal he was seeking previously. I'd love to see a fired up Clowney on a one year deal playing for the Colts.

  24. I believe Chinn is more strong safety than he is a free safety. But I’ll make a prediction here... I predict the Cokts do NOT pick up his 5th year option which I believe we have to do by this May. I think we still want Hooker, but he’s got to play much better to keep him. Not picking up the option sends a loud message.

  25. Alright, saw your response just after my "edit" window ended (I hate that). Thankfully, pick #209 has been amended to be you. So, 1 out of 2 accomplished. @stitches and Jacksonville on the clock.

  26. I did a quick skim. It looks good. Thank you. Next year, we should add in the rules that GMs are responsible for making sure that trades they have made are reflected in the draft order. It is too much to ask the GM to do everything. The draft was run very well this year in spite of the minor gaffes here and there. Thanks @csmopar and @chad72.

  27. He’s one of the off the wall picks I could see Ballard making. He’s a Fisher’s Indiana native with long arms and elite athletic testing. Everything about him screams Colts. He’s like Darius Leonard but a safety.

  28. I agree. There was also talk of the Colts being in contact w/ Delanie Walker and some other FA TEs. I imagine they're going to address that position somehow (like you say, Reich's offenses seem to always have one dynamic TE and one TE who is used more for blocking and short yards, which I how I view Doyle). Won't be shocked if they get a one-year stopgap type guy to fill the void.

  29. I agree With Bproland here. Pretty light on the OL depth in your mock, and OT is probably the more pressing. Love the Mims pick, though I think he’ll be gone in the early twenties. Plenty of people think he’ll last to 34, so I hope you’re right!

  30. Not too shabby sir. Love Mims and Kmet. I think Hurts will be decent, but I'd rather have Gordon in the 4th. But Lewis would be pretty good really. Don't know enough about the other guys to comment.

  32. That relates to exactly what happens in this forum. Even the pro crews don't agree on assessments and opinions so why should we? That is why I shy away from saying who should be taken where. After watching last years and this years with the next pick, I am sure there are players mentioned in this forum that won't even be on the Colts draft board. Most of us see the highlights of a player but Ballard and crew are looking at much, much more. I like it.

  33. That is what happens when you cut and paste and try to keep so many balls juggling as commish. @csmopar made that update, I copied it and pasted it, and here we are, LOL. All forum GMs, if there is a crack, they will exploit it. It is also the GMs' responsibility to sometimes check just their own picks/trades and let us know, we are all in this together. It is hard to do this on our own.

  37. They could have been talking about any qb. It could have been filmed before the trade was set in place, and they were referring to trading up into the top 5-10 for a qb. Who knows.

  38. Well first of all, not all Jones' pro-bowlers were pro-bowlers as rookies. For example, Michael Irvin and Troy Aikman were drafted in '88 and '89, respectively. They didn't make a probowl until 1991. Arguably, because Emmit Smith (who made the probowl as a rookie in 1990) was added to form the original 'trio' (followed later by our Colts, who didn't see Marvin or Peyton become pro-bowlers until 1999 when Edge was drafted). Big Q and The Maniac were the first rookie duo to make first team all-pro on the same team (and 2nd time in NFL history) since 1965 when Dick Butkus and Gal

  39. I personally prefer Mims at pick 34. But still researching. Here are a couple of videos of Mims and Claypool 1 on 1 drills at the Senior bowl. Looks like Claypool has greater size and strength to push the DB around, while Mims has greater sudden mobility and separation to go long.

  40. Realistically.....for me.... Mims & Reagor are the WRs I'd pick #34 if one of them happens to make it that far.

  41. I think at least one of Mims, Jefferson, or Tee Higgins will be available at 34. I would prefer Jefferson first, Mims 2nd, and Higgins 3rd.

  42. Would love to get Cole Kmet at 34 & Chase Claypool at 44! Checks two boxes and we’re getting two future pro bowl players in the second rd! Thank you Book for dropping both players stocks & it’s up to staff to take advantage. Both killed the combine and are real difference makers at the next level. Imagine Rivers throwing to both with TY and Mack/Hines out of the backfield! It’s there IF WE WANT IT!

  44. I’ve read potentially, that six WRs could be drafted in Rd 1. With that being said, I think most view a WR who can play the X and agree. I like and want to say Mims, but think he’s definitely drafted before 34. So, I see Pittman potentially being selected, but more at pick 44 and go CB at 34. JMO

  45. Why? Because it sucks on ice. The Colts have some of the best pro uni's going on par with the Yankees and kids who think these are a great idea want Blue on the side of the helmet or something. No thanks to the tweeks or the updating. This is one area Jim Irsay is 1000% correct.

  46. Of course their banking on young players taking the next step. What do you think the plan is......to draft a bunch of young players in the early rounds the last few years, only to sign stopgap FAs to block them from developing? Or to use draft capital this year at positions that have already been addressed to add even more young players that you also are banking on developing?

  47. I know, Luck had 18 INT's in his rookie season and we still won 11 games. Rivers threw just 2 more last season. I keep telling people the Chargers had a bad O.Line, we don't which will help Rivers a lot.
