  1. Well, I don't think they have bad instincts, I did say they had average to good instincts. They aren't elite or anything. As far as a smash mouth ILB, they would be fine at that. But you never really have a guarantee that a run down will actually be a run and vice versa. I geuss my view on it is, I'd rather have an average run stopper up the middle who gives up a 4 yard run play, but doesn't give up the swing pass to the edge like Freeman than a guy who can get a 1 yard stop up the middle who gives up 5 of on the off tackle. I know that's an overly simplistic way to view things, but with
  2. I think he's (EDIT: talking about Mauro) a bit underrated. If we had a 4th, I'd consider taking him. Would be all over it with a 5th.
  3. Well, I've already made my distaste for this ILB class well known. So my analysis of these players assumes we're talking abotu a 5th round, 26th overall selection by the Colts. My problem with Skov is the same problem I have with Bullough, average to good instincts, but a liability in coverage and sideline to sideline tackling. We run a lot of man, so that poses significant problems on 2nd/3rd down and mid-range to go. At least with Bullough, you don't have the serious injury history. And while in Bullough, you've got character flaws, I'll take his character issue (which I see as more of
  4. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see Skov fall to the 5th...and I wouldn't take him if he were there.
  5. lol me either. The game gets rather boring after you get a high score. I like it better when there's guys I actually want to draft available (although, I would take Xavier, just probably not with our first pick).
  6. Now #1. Just goes to show that the scoring on this doesn't really result in a good draft. Wha'ts weird is I couldn't even crack the list of top 20 for anything under the old system. Makes me wonder how they actually graded it. Under the new one, you just have to get lucky. Your score is: 6144 (GRADE: A) Your Picks: Round 3 Pick 24 (CINN): Ed Reynolds, FS, Stanford (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas (A) Round 3 Pick 30 (S.F.): Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina (A) Round 4 Pick 23 (CINN): Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh (A) R
  7. Had to share this one with you all. Couldn't believe Sua'Filo was there with the 2/27. Did like 3 double checks to make sure I was actually on my pick. Went for high score. #5 overall baby!! Well, for Colts high scores anyway lol. Your score is: 5913 (GRADE: A) Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 27: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Morgan Breslin, OLB, Southern California (A) Round 6 Pick 27: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama (A)
  8. So, this was weird. When it first started out, I wanted to trade back and get an early 3rd and 4th round. Didn't even look to see was available. The best option was to drop back 4 spots and pick up a late 4th rounder. To my surprise, Gabe Jackson was still there...and then Jordan Matthews. Not sure the Colts would want to pick up an OL with their 2nd round pick (and I wasnt' even sure I did either, but went with it anyway). Oh, and the 6/27 I was able to drop back 2 spots nad pick up the 7/7 as well. Forget the grade, I kinda like this draft even if I highly doubt we'd go OG and WR with
  9. I was wondering how you accomplished that. I've been able to trade a 2015 1st round for the #26 overall like you. But the best guys I've been able to get there is Calvin Pryor and CJ Mosley. Once I was able to trade for I believe the 23rd pick (2015 first round and 6th round pick) and picked up Taylor Lewan who slipped that far. But dont' know if that would work under the new system.
  10. Thomas improved at his pro day. I know people make a bigger deal out of 40 times than they should, but he clocked an unofficial 4.34 and 4.35, which I would think as a specialist, you couldn't ignore given his college production as returner. I've been a fan of McKinnon as well. Like you, I don't know if we go that route, but I wouldn't be terribly disappointed if we took an all around, quick back who we would use in several positions to utilize his playmaking ability and get him into space (I'm thinking like Julian Edelman).
  11. Cash in while you've got marketability left I guess.
  12. Yep. Wouldn't mind any of those guys either. As far as ST returners, I don't even really know what they look for. It seems like you just pick a fast guy and hope u get lucky.
  13. Really? I'm a fan of the guy...I mean, 6th round or lower. I wish I could remember who else was there. But once you get to the 6/27...its' like like 3/4 RBs/WRs/DTs, and the rest are guys that will be there with the 7/17. But a guy that nets me a bad score that I really would take here is OLB Howard Jones. I wouldnt' care if we had Van Noy. I think this kid is going to be a sleeper pick. Really like that kid.
  14. Really? He's there all the time for me. In fact, the one draft where I traded the 3rd and 6th round for 2 4th rounders...McGill AND Moncrief were available at the 4th round, 4th pick...I was devastated because I know neither would be there for the second lol.
  15. This is probably how I would have done the previous draft. I can only take this game so long, . Your score is: 4612 (GRADE: B+) Round 2 Pick 27: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Keith McGill, CB, Utah (A-) Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 6 Pick 27: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Alden Darby, SS, Arizona State (B)
  16. This was one I was drafting for grade. McGill was available, and if this were a real draft, I'd have taken him over Quarles. Schofield, if there at #5 I would take. There was no real FS there, but Alden Darby was avaialable at the time. In fact, more often than not, he is available in the 7th.
  17. Think he meant he had to make a ton of trades just to get a decent grade. Which is true about this game. Either that, or your draft BPA available, but then you get docked because you aren't drafting a "Top 3 Need." It just doesn't make a lot of sense. And it's why I can't, for the life of me figure out how people get 6000 and higher for the Colts.
  18. This netted me my highest grade that I've ever been able to get. Would have liked to get a FS in there, but it wasn't in the cards. Your score is: 5040 (GRADE: A-) Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 27: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 6 Pick 27: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma (A-)
  19. Here was an odd one. Traded the 3rd round pick and 6th round pick for the two 4th round selections. At 4th Rd, #11, no OL, OLB, WR prospects I liked, but couldn't really trade for anything. Meh on that pick. Round 2 Pick 27: Terrence Brooks, FS, Florida State (A) Round 4 Pick 4 (NYJ): Keith McGill, CB, Utah (A) Round 4 Pick 11 (DET): Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State (B-) Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 7 Pick 17: L'Damian Washington, WR, Missouri (B+)
  20. I couldn't figure out how they did the scoring either. But hey, I was bored at work and I can't watch film at work because it gets blocked out by our IT security program. Since this game functions, I had time to figure it out. And well, after many many hours, I am no closer than when I first started, and the gamer in me just can't let it go.
  21. What I really hate about it is, it makes no room for tweeners and crossovers. Some prospects with a "SS" tag could play the FS position just fine, some OTs project better as OG, or OG/C prospects. With a few of the lesser stacked positions, positions like OT, OG, and FS are being drafted WAAY ahead of where they are projected or even rated. It's like every time a T is listed on the BPA, it's seldom higher than a B rating and never an A. Sucks for the Colts because we have no first round pick and no matter how you draft, sooner or later, you'll be forced to either reach for crappy players o
  22. When I first watched film on him, I didn't think he would be that good at setting the edge, but he has the frame to develop to put on more weight, so he could be able to set the edge well. It really just depends on how well he progresses, but I think that his deficiencies are coachhable (right now, can't set the edge, doesn't show much discipline in the run game, could stand ti improve his recognition). As far as physical attributes, he's got a good blend size, speed, and power that, as a package, is better than a lot of the other 2nd round tweeners a la Carl Bradford and Marcus Smith.
  23. I'd put Gabe Jackson on there too, complete oversight. Not a big fan of Marcus Roberson. He'd be okay I guess, but I'd prefer Attaochu or Brooks (or Gabe for that matter).
