  1. I think he will resign some of our players but as of now with no one being resigned. This is how I have the position rankings. When they resign Ebron, Costanzo, Ali-Cox, Haeg, and Clark then the positions will change. As of now with no one being resigned TE is a clear cut number one unless everyone is happy with Billy Brown and Hale Hentges. I have NT/DT in tier 2 and have it labeled we need a solid started. We will have Autry, Lewis, and Hunt all under contract. I dont think those positions need to be in Tier 1 which is labeled we need to rebuild the position, but an upgrade for those positions would be great. Honestly, the more I keep looking at NT the less value for that position I see. If you look at our D-line right now. We have one true NT Stewart (330 lbs) After that we have five line man 260-290 lbs (Autry, Lewis, Ward, Hunt, and Lewis). Then we have Turay (220). Then from 250-260 (sheard, Houston, Green.) For the edge, I think we need to start looking to find two building blocks; possibly rebuild the position. Back up the brinks truck for a young stud Edge player. Sheard will be a FA. Houston is getting up there in age. That leaves Turay a second round second year player who had four sacks and fifteen total tackles last year one. It also leaves Green a fourth round rookie. Lewis is more of a DT to me they may transition him outside more if injuries occur, but I think they are looking to replace Autry with him.
  2. I know it's really early but, if anyone wants to get a head start on looking at next years draft prospects or free agents. This is my positional needs ranking from most needed to least needed at this time. Tier 1 we need to rebuild the position. Tier 2 we need solid starters. Tier 3 Depth. Tier 4 not needed at all. Tier 1: TE - Everyone is a free agent. LT - Castonzo, Clark, and Haeg are all free agents. Hopefully at least resign Castonzo and Haeg will be resigned if not all three. DE - Sheard is a FA. We will have Houston, Turay, Green, and a couple roster bubble guys. We will need two solid young starters. K - Vinny is getting old he may have another who knows P - Rigo is RFA probably will be resigned Tier 2: CB - Moore will be a FA. We still have RYS, Desir, and Wilson but retaining Moore is a must in my opinion. SS - Willis isn't proven yet and Geathers is a FA. WR - We will need a taller wide receiver still in my opinion(maybe not). Funchess will be a FA. We still have Hilton 5'9", Campbell 6' , and Cain 6'2" NT - An upgrade here would be awesome Tier 3: DT - depth/upgrade QB - Need a backup or to retain Brissett C - Depth RT - Depth G - Depth Tier 4: RB - 4th string MLB SAM WLB FS
  3. I think Sweat would have been a no brainier if he didn't have health concerns or character issues, but he did. I think Banogu will fits our scheme better. We also don't have their 2020 second round pick. The 2020 pick could end up being a better edge defender than both of them, or maybe even the next Dallas Clark, Dwight Freeney, or Tarik Glenn. You never know! The 26th pick is worth 700 points. The 49th pick is worth 410 points. 291 points or better would make the trade benefit us. In the second round of 2020 if the Redskins get the 61st (29th pick in the second round(292 points)) pick or lower we win the trade mathematically. I would say our chances are pretty solid. If they get the 35th pick or so like I think they will. Then the 49th pick and 35th pick add up to the 17th pick. We will win this trade unless the Redskins are super bowl bound somehow.
  4. I know I'm getting ahead of myself. I just want to bring this up and see what conversations it generates. Ballard is doing a fantastic job for the long term. Just kind of a side note. Putting it on paper for myself to see. 3/5 of the predicted depth chart will be returning already. 7/11(TE/TE/LT/(WR2 maybe)) Offensive Starters returning. 10/11(slotCB) Defensive starters returning. No special teams returning. Sitting on 59M THIS year to extend players such as Kenny Moore(24), Anthony Cosanzo(31), Jack Doyle(29), Eric Ebron(26), Mo Ali-Cox(25), Jabaal Sheard(30), Rigaberto Sanchez(24), Devin Funchess(25), and Adam Vinetieri(46), Joe Haeg(26), and etc... I added Odum and Muhammad to this one because they are under contract for 2020/2021 season. For the 2020/2021 season as of now these are all of the players that will be under contract from the predicted depth chart I did. QB - Luck RB - Mack, Hines, Wilkens WR - Hilton, Cain, TE - 86 LT - 86 LG - Nelson C - Kelly RG - Glowinski RT - Smith TE - 86 WR - Campbell, DE - Houston, Muhammad* DT - Autry, Lewis NT - Hunt, Stewart DE - Turay SAM - Banogu, Adams MLB - Walker, Okereke WLB - Leonard, Speed CB - Desir, Wilson FS - Hooker, Odum* SS - Willis CB(slot) - 86 CB - Ya-Sin, Tell K - 86 P - 86 LS - 86 In conclusion we are getting a very very strong core of guys for the long term to build around. The correct way to rebuild in my opinion is getting closer to being finished. It seems Ballard may need to figure out how to maintain the rebuild and keep all of our core guys. The money is going to evaporate rather quickly resigning our own guys.
  5. The back end gets tricky. There is a lot more talent this year than last year. I think Ward, Lewis, and Autry are all kinda interchangeable so I wanted to get one of them as a backup DE so they could get some more reps. I think we are going to see a lot of different combos on the D-line. for instance I would be happy with any of these Autry/Ward/Hunt/Sheard Houston/Autry/Ward/Turay Ward/Lewis/Autry/Houston Banogu/Ward/Stewart/Sheard. Odum, Ross, and Mohammed could make the squad. We are going to be cutting some good players in my opinion unfortunately. WR wise in order I think it'll be Hilton/Funchess/Campbell/Cain/Pascal/Rogers Everyone else feel free to make one. I would love to see them to compare please!
  6. I agree however, there will always be new names and faces it needs to be maintained every year. And if Suh comes in too early there could be a small chance something could be thrown off balance. So, lets make sure our rookies and new free agents understand how we do things with all the right influences in place first.
  7. I would give myself a red F. I did horrible. I can honestly say Paris Campbell is the only person I got right out of the tenish I've done on here and other forums combined. The spot wasn't even right on that note.
  8. I would love to see where everyone's head is at for the 53 man depth chart for week one. I know it's early just for fun too see what everyone is thinking while the draft is still fresh. Don't worry about the practice squad unless you want too. QB - Luck, Brissett RB - Mack, Hines, Wilkens WR - Hilton, Campbell*, Pascal TE - Doyle, Ali-Cox LT - Costanzo, Clark LG - Nelson, Patterson* C - Kelly, Boehm RG - Glowinski, Haeg RT - Smith, Barton* TE - Ebron, Hentges* WR - Funchess, Cain, Rogers DE - Houston, Ward DT - Autry, Lewis, Thompson* NT - Hunt, Stewart DE - Sheard, Turay SAM - Banogu*, Adams MLB - Walker, Okereke* WLB - Leonard, Speed* CB- Desir, Tell* FS - Hooker, Farley, SS - Geathers, Willis*, Kindred CB(slot) - Moore CB -Ya Sin*, Wilson K - Grandpa Vinny P - Sanchez LS - Rhodes Format if you want to copy paste: QB - RB - WR - TE - LT - LG - C - RG - RT - TE - WR - DE - DT - NT - DE - SAM - MLB - WLB - CB - FS - SS - CB(slot) - CB - K - P - LS -
  9. Ballard has doubled down in every draft since he has been with the colts at least 2 times every draft. I love it. It creates competition and makes the positions younger. It also make sure the vets know shape up or ship out. I like this pick it is going to put Ballard in a tough spot. Corners - Moore, Desir, Ya Sin, Wilson, Hairston, Collins, Tell (corner/safety) Safeties - Hooker, Geathers, Willis, Farley, Odum, Some solid players in the secondary are going to get cut, hopefully we can keep them on the practice squad.
  10. I would like Suh if we could get him later. Like right before the preseason starts so the COLTure is established already. If we do get him just for a year maybe two max if the price is right.
  11. Cards- Quinnen Williams 49ers - Nick Bosa Jets - Josh Allen Raiders - Ed Oliver Bucs - Devin White Giants - Dwayne Haskins Jags - TJ Hockenson Lions - Rashan Gary Redskins (trade Bills) - Kyler Murray Broncos - Noah Fant
  12. I'm going to use my 6th and 7th round picks to hopefully to lock up points in the first couple rounds. Round 1 - 26 A: Brian Burns Edge Florida State B: Jerry Tillary DT Notre Dame C: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Round 2a - 34 A: Dre'mont Jones DT Ohio State B: Jeffery Simmons DT Miss State C: Nkeal Harry WR Arizona State Round 2b - 59 A: Taylor Rapp S Washington B: Amani Oruwariye CB Penn State C: Zach Allen Edge Boston College Round 3 - 89 A: Vosean Joseph LB Florida B: Tre Lamar LB Clemson C: Amani Hooker S Iowa Round 4a - 129 A: Max Scharping OT Northen IL B: Joe Jelks Edge Oregon Round 4b - 135 A: Demarkus Lodge WR Ole Miss B: Isiaih Prince OT Ohio State Round 5 - 164 A: Kendall Blanton TE Missouri B: Charles Omenihu Edge Texas Round 6 - 199 A: Jonathon Abram S Mississippi State B: Jaylon Ferguson Edge Louisaina State Round 7 - 240 A: Christian Wilkens DT Clemson B: Yodny Cajuste OT West Virginia
  13. Who does everyone want out of remaining in FA available? and Why? It seems like Ballard is late to the party again during free agency, but for the better. A lot of extremely high prices in my opinion. Here's a few guys I like with a hail marry. Clayton Geathers S - I have been big on him from the start. I think there just letting him shop around so he sees his market with his own eyes then we HOPEFULLY end up locking him down for a few years. Danny Shelton DT - Be nice to steal a pat and to get a anchor for the middle of our D-Line. He will be 26 this year. He may have signed already. I think I remember seeing it, but when I'm looking it up now it says he is still available. If he is still available this is my biggest want. Justin Houston Pass Rush - May have a couple years in the tank may want to come to a contender and give us a discount. We need another good pass rusher and the man has been doing it consistently for a couple years or so... He is on the older side but we need some pass rush love. Zach Brown LB - A tackling machine. See ball get ball. Doing it will for six years. You're going to get 100 tackles, a couple sacks, and maybe a pick. If he starts, Anthony Walker keeps getting better. Could just be a depth signing so we can use more draft capital to build up these lines. Nick Perry Edge - nothing guaranteed all prove it. I think he's got it he just doesn't want it. EXTREMELY high risk with a decent reward(are you feeling lucky punk?) He can't stay healthy. Maybe a change from OLB to DE would keep him healthier and hungrier. Maybe a change of scenery would help him out.
  14. Going to make some BIG BOLD moves and risking it for the biscuits in the off season mock. Hopefully, going to generate a lot of positive conversations between everyone!! This one got a little more crazy than intended. Overall, the team looks pretty solid though. Some of the draft picks will probably be gone but they were all available on first-pick when it was time to draft them. Cap Space: Roughly 107M Colts Free Agents: Ryan Hewitt - 2 years 900k per year - Great blocker can play full back when we rarely use one Dontrelle Inman - 1 year 2M per year - He can catch the ball Jihad Ward - 1 year 750K per year- He was good towards the end of the year last year Luke Rhodes - 2 years 750K per year - Long snapper Matthias Farley - 2 years 1.4M per year - Good character, adds to the COLTure, Ballard likes him Evan Boehm - 2 years 800K per year - good backup center if Kelly goes down Zach Pascal - 2 years 1.1M per year - good depth Chester Rogers - 2 years 1.1M per year - kick/punt returner Cap Space: Roughly 98M Trades: Miami gets: Jacoby Brissett/2020-2nd round pick Indianpolis gets: DeVante Parker/ Xavien Howard New England gets: R3P26/Jack Doyle Indianapolis gets: R1P32 Cap Space: Roughly 92M Outside Free Agents: Landon Collins - 4 years 10.5M per year - A safety who averages over 100 tackles per season. He can apply pressure to the QB. Demarcus Lawrence - 4 years 20.5M per year(front loading contract so we can sign our players in the future years. 40M his first year) - A top five pass rush specialist. I think the longer the it takes for Dallas to sign him the lower the chances are he gets a deal done. He said he wasn't playing on another franchise tag this year. He probably won't make it to the market, but praying for the best. Rodney Gunter - 1 year 2.2M per year - Gunter is going to create competition for our young guys. Alfred Morris - 1 year 900K per year - Just getting a vet at that position in case an injuries occur. Ryan Fitzmagic - 2 years 2M per year - FitzMAGIC Jesse James - 3 years 4.5M per year - Jack Doyle and Jesse James look like they could be twin brothers Cap Space: Roughly 31M Draft Rounds: Doing this mock draft off of the website first-pick.com R1P26: Deandre Baker CB Georgia - I think he is the best corner in the draft. He is physical, can cover, has ball skills, looks good in zone and man. R1P32: DK Metcalf WR Mississippi - It seems like most receivers in this draft can't separate yet. So, lets get the receiver with the most potential. He can make the circus catches and use his body to block out real good. R2P2: Dexter Lawrence NT Clemson - A powerful nose tackle for the next decade who can push back the pocket and apply some pressure R2P26: Andre Dillard OT Washington State - Athletic pass protector who could make for a good swing tackle R4P26: Tyrel Dodson LB Texas A&M - Coverage Linebacker with good ball skills R4P33: Malik Gant S Marshall - Hard hitting safety R5P26: Gary Jennings Jr. WR West Virginia - Throwing Darts R6P26: Austin Seibert K Oklahoma - Throwing Darts R7P26: Ryan Bee DT Marshall - Throwing Darts Colts Roster: QB: Luck, FitzMagic RB: Mack, Hines, Wilkens, Morris TE: Ebron, James, Ali-Cox, Hewitt WR: Hilton, Metcalf, Parker, Inman, Cain, Pascal, O-Line: Costanzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith O-Line Depth: Clark, Haeg, Boehm, Dillard D-Line: Sheard, Autry, Dex. Lawrence, Dem Lawrence D-Line Depth: Lewis, Turay, Stewart, Ridgeway, Ward, Gunter Linebackers: Leonard, Walker Linebacker Depth: Adams, Franklin, Moore, Dodson Secondary: Howard, Moore, Hooker, Collins, Baker Secondary Depth: Wilson, Odum, Hairston, Farley, Gant K/P/LS/Return-man - Vinny/Sanchez/Rhodes/Rogers
  15. Maybe Denver or Washington due to cap space. I'm hoping we get a player in return if he ends up going anywhere. I wouldn't complain about getting a pick either. I can get behind this but not just for DeAndre Baker maybe a pass rusher or interior D-line will fall.
  16. Probably take a shot on Xavien honestly. Yes, the results were mixed, but I think he has "improved" every year. We had good luck with Desir and Moore. They both improved. I think he may have great potential. Personally I think that's what I would do.
  17. The tweet is a couple days old maybe this was posted somewhere else and I missed it if so I'm so sorry. Don't know how reliable this source is. Hopefully we throw a pick in and shoot for Xavien Howard! Maybe their second rounder if we are really lucky; especially considering Flacco went for a fourth. (probably no chance but I can hope for the best) Any other trade thoughts?!
  18. I think Desir will price out. I went with Coleman because he is a competent slot veteran, and that will create competition for our young corners. I chose Humphries over Inman. I think we could resign Inman. However, he is getting up there in age and we need to upgrade at receiver. Humprhies is a younger 600-850 yard slot receiver who has improved every year. As for Geathers I just got a gut feeling. I'm wrong on price for him by quite a bit most likely. However, Reid and Geathers stats were similar. Geather was our third leading tackler. I think Ballard takes COLTure into consideration, and I've read a few places where he loves Geathers around the locker room. By signing him for that much I think it will send a message to the locker room. We take care of our own. Hopefully, motivate our young guys to step up, and put in some work this offseason. (Wilson, Turay, Hooker, Lewis, Haeg, Mack, Kelly, Cain, Smith, etc...)
  19. https://www.profootballrumors.com/2019/02/nfc-notes-clark-tate-rosen-alexander They say some teams are willing to pay 10M. If that is the case I'll hard pass.
  20. Cap Space(spotrac) - 107.5M Our Guys: Clayton Geathers - 2years/13M(higher on him than most but Ballard is high on him as well from what I've read.) Chester Rogers - 1year/1.2M Ryan Hewitt - 1year/850k Luke Rhodes - 3years/3M Matthias Farley - 2years/3M Zach Pascal - 1year/1.1M Other Free Agents: We got some young building blocks and the COLTure is established. Time to target some FAs with the money we have saved up. Danny Shelton - 3years/13.5M Trey Flowers - 5years/80M Were going to go after an Edge rusher if they make it to free agency. Whoever it is will be getting paid. Justin Coleman - 2years/6M Jordan Hicks - 4years/28M Adam Humphries - 3years/33M Cap Space roughly: 55M Draft: I did a fanspeak mock. I doubt some of these guys will be at the pick I got them at. R1P11: Ed Oliver DT Houston - He fell so we traded our R1P26, R2P26, and our 2020 third round pick R2P2: Deandre Baker CB, R3P26: JJ Arcega-Whiteside WR, Stanford R4P26: Taylor Rapp S, Washington R4P33: Isiah Prince OT, Ohio State R5P26: Joe Giles-Harris LB, Duke R6P26: Ty Johnson RB, Maryland R7P26: Traded to steelers for a future 5th Colts Roster: QB: Luck, Brissett RB: Mack, Hines, Wilkins, Johnson WR: Hilton, Arcega-Whiteside, Rogers WR: Humphries, Cain, Pascal TE: Doyle, Ali-Cox TE: Ebron, Hewit LT: Castonzo, Clark LG: Nelson C: Kelly, Boehm RG: Glowinski, Haeg RT: Smith, Prince DE: Flowers, Turay, Muhammad 3T: Oliver, Autry NT: Shelton, Stewart, Ridgeway DE: Sheard, Lewis WLB: Leonard, Giles-Harris MLB: Hicks, Walker SLB: Adams, Franklin CB: Moore, Coleman, Hairston FS: Hooker, Rapp SS: Geathers, Farley CB: Baker, Wilson K: Vinny P: Rigo LS: Rhodes
