  1. I'm making another. I really enjoy doing these a lot and I'm very depressed since there wont be colts football for another eight months. If anyone has a problem with me doing so many please tell me and I can slow down. 

     

    Cap Space roughly 122M

     

    Resign:

    Vinny 1 year/3M

    Pierre Desir 2 years/9M

    Clayton Geathers 2 years/8M

    Mark Glowinski - 4 years/14.4M

    Zach Pascal - 1 year/900k

    Matthais Farley - 1 year/1M

    Evan Boehm - 2 years/2.8M

    Eric Swoope - 1 year/750k

    Ryan Hewitt - 1 year/850k

     

    Cap Space Roughly 100M

     

    Free Agents:

     

    Trey Flowers - 5 years/76M - 30M the first year front loading hard so we have more money to sign our own guys in the future. We need a pass rusher bad and we got the money. Also a great run stopper. He has got the best chance of the pass rushers to hit free agency (hopefully, Lawrence wants out of Dallas); therefore, this pick is going to be very repetitive. 

    Tre Boston - 3 years/9.9M -Would be a great backup behind Hooker also he is big enough to get in the box and play a coverage line-backer if need be.

     

    Cap Space: 66M

     

    Trade: 

    We trade our third round pick and Mo Ali-Cox for Cooper Kupp (6'2" 208lbs). He is coming off IR (ACL Tear in November) so we can get him for cheap (hopefully). He was on pace for over 1,000 yard last season before he got injured. He is third on the Rams depth chart behind Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks. 

     

    Draft: 

    R1P26 - Dexter Lawrence DT, Clemson - A big Nose Tackle that can eat up double teams and stop the run very well

    R2P2 - Chris Lindstorm OG, Boston College - An athletic flexible guard who is good at everyone but great at nothing yet. 

    R2P26 - Amani Oruwariye CB, Penn State - A quick big body CB with ball skills. Our zone should be a good fit for him.

    R4P26 - David Stills WR, West Virginia - good size to go well with TY and fantastic hands and a good redzone threat (at least in college)

    R4P33 - Trevon Coney LB, Notre Dame - A tackling machine 

    R5P26 - Amani Bledsoe DT, Oklahoma - Dont know really anything about him but I like his name (throwing darts)

    R6P26 - Jazz Ferguson WR, Northwestern State - Another Big wideout with some great hands and jump ball ability and can get downfield 

    R7P26 - Qadree Ollison RB, Pittsburgh - A big RB to get across that one yard line when it matters

     

    Colts Roster:

     

    QB - Luck, Brissett

    RB - Mack, Hines, Wilsin, Ollison

    WR - Hilton, Stills, Ferguson

    TE - Ebron, Swoope

    LT - Castonzo, Clark

    LG - BigQ, 

    C - Kelly, Boehm

    RG - Glowinski, Lindstorm  

    RT - Smith, Haeg

    TE - Doyle, Hewitt

    WR - Kupp, Cain, Pascal

     

    Edge - Sheard, Turray, Muhammad

    NT  - Lawrence, Stewart

    UT - Autry, Ridgeway, Bledsoe

    Edge - Flowers, Lewis

    WLB - Leonard, Adams

    ILB - Walker, Coney

    SAM - Franklin

    CB - Moore, Oruwariye, Hairston

    FS - Hooker, Boston, Odum

    SS - Geathers, Farley

    CB - Desir, Wilson

     

    P - Sanchez

    K - Vinny

    LS - Boehm

     

  2. Upgrading all of these positions will improve our chances I think.

    3T/NT/DE (the entire d line we need to pressure the QB and stop the run better)  

    WR (compliment to TY)

    S (a back up to hooker and geathers (hopefully resigned to at least a prove it deal) when they get injured or possibly another one to play as a coverage LBer with the other two of them on the field)

    CB (we have two good young ones but another one would be great)

    O-Line (always need competition/depth)

     

    A healthy Doyle would help a lot as well. 

     

    Also, since our coaches will be in their second year; maybe upgrading our offensive and defensive systems to confuse other teams.

    True. Do you think if Geathers and Farley both resign, we play Geathers at the SLB some next year?  

    I don't know exactly but I really think both are coming back and I also believe if Landon from the giants hits the open market we may sign him as well. If we get all three I could see something like the Chargers do. 

  4. Cap Space for the teams: according to spotrac

    Atlanta 20.4M 

    Seattle 60.3M

    New York Giants 27.2M

    Dallas 50.9M

    New England 25.4M

    Houston 67M

    Kansas City 40M

     

    Grady Jarrett, Trey Flowers, and Landon Collins could all sneak through to FA. Lawrence has a chance (not a great chance but a chance) to make it as well.  The tag for him would be about 20.5M.  

     

    Some other money going to sign our own guys and some to the draft picks. 

     

    Maybe some money on the D-line. Maybe another O-lineman. He said we want 8 starters on D-line and 10 on the o-lines. If none of them hit the market probably just competition guys. 

     

    I really hope he makes a splash or two if some of "big names" hit the market.

    Thanks for putting together

     

    You definitely are going "strong" on SS

     

    This defense needs some pass rush

     

    I live in Dallas, and the local read here is that Lawrence is going anywhere. At a minimum, he will be tagged

     

    If Simmons is there, he helps to the rotation

     

    I think he is LONG gone, by the time we draft 32.  :)

     

    I also think that we possibly upgrade from Walker, who has played "ok", but we could

    upgrade to a a bit better guy.

     

    If Hakeem Butler is gone, Lil Jordan Humphrey is a fantastic pickup. (I think he may be gone late 2nd mid third)

     

    Lastly, I may be wrong, but I dont see the Colts getting a CB even in round 2.

     

    We have 2 very good, and improving CBs for this defense. They will find a CB, for this defense in FA (we may already have) or in round 4 on.

     

     

     

     

     

    I agree with most.  This is kinda high hopes for me. I went strong on safetys because some teams are running three at a time and using one or two as linebackers.

     

    I grabbed Baker because he was still there. I just did a fanspeak mock draft. Personally, I think he is the best CB in the draft. I'm probably wrong though.

     

    Doing those two things above sets our Secondary and Linebackers up for the next 3 years as long as we resign Kenny Moore in 2020. (on paper) Then we can focus on Drafting both trenches and play-makers. 

     

    Lawrence is throwing up a hail mary praying something happens and he hits the market.  

     

    Thank you for all the feedback much appreciated!!!!

  6. Cap Space roughly 121.5M

     

    Resign: I think the price for resigning our squad is going to increase the farther we progress in the playoffs. 

    Vinny - 1 year/3M (3M per year)

    Mark Glowinski - 4 years/18M (4.5M per year)

    Clayton Geathers - 2 years/7.6M (3.8M per year)

    Pierre Desir - 2 years/8.4M (4.2M per year)

    Matthias Farley - 1 year/900k (900k per year)

    Evan Boehm - 2 years/2.2M (1.1M per year)

    Margus Hunt - 1 year/2.4M (2.4M per year)

    Chester Rogers 2 years/2M (1M per year)

     

    Cap Space : Roughly 101M

     

    Free Agents: Not signing a lot of free agents. I think it will be quality over quantity.

     

    Demarcus Lawrence - 5 years/99M (19.8M per year) I highly doubt he hits FA. If he does Ballard is going to spend some money and Eberflus connection.

    Landon Collins - 4 years/38.8M (9.7M per year) I know I signed Geathers too. Doubling down on the position since we don't have to resign Hooker for a few years still. 

    Jordan Hicks - 3 years/12.6M (4.2M per year) Philly connection and would be a great linebacker to go with our young dominant duo.

    Jordan Matthews - 1 year/1M (1M per year) I may be wrong. I think he was under Reich in Philly for a year and that years stats line didn't look bad. 

     

    Cap Space: Roughly 66M

    Welcome to the forums @FirsTime!

    You'll find that all of us are armchair GM's; believing that we could manage a team better than anyone who is actually paid to do the job.  At least when we're not posting a variation of "I'm not stupid, you're stupid".  Am looking forward to your thoughts and posts as we go through the off season, the Combine, the Draft, and free agency.  Cheers!

    Thank you! 

     

    I still think Ballard is gonna spend this free agency. I don't know where exactly but I could see a couple D-lineman and drafting a couple as well. 

     

    I agree with drafting an O-lineman in the first three rounds. I think that is going to keep happening. 

     

    As for WR there aren't really any good ones this FA class. The only good one IMO just got resigned. I think the draft would be the way to go whether it be Brown, Brown, Harry, Harmon, etc...

     

    I really have a hunch Ballard is gonna spend some money and make some moves. This is going to be a very exciting off-season!! Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

    Cap Space heading into the 2019 Off-Season according to spotrac: 122M

     

    Resign:

    Mark Glowinski- 4 years 4.3M per year 

    Vinny- 30 years 3M per year hes going to play till hes 70 LOL (but really just 1 year 3M)

    Clayton Geathers- 3 years 4.3M per year (I'm a little higher on him than most people)

    Matthias Farley- 1 year 1.1M per year

    Pierre Desir- 2 years 2.8M per year

    Evan Boehm- 1 year 900K per year

    Matt Slauson- 1 year 1.4M per year

     

    Free Agents:

    I think Ballard is going to come out swinging this free agency. I think we have a good young core (Leonard, Mack, Big Q, Kelly, Smith, Walker, Hooker, Lewis, plus a couple more.) and the COLTure has changed. As long as we keep drafting good the core will only get better. 

     

    Brock Osweiler- 2 years 1.2M per year Backup QB

    Qunicy Enunwa- 2 years 6.9M per year. He could be the real deal with Luck and the right system. 

    Trey Flowers- 5 years 16.2M per year. Probably overpaying but very young progressing so far every year. Equally good against pass and run. Plus the rivalry is back on. 

    Grady Jarrett- 4 years 14.9M per year. Very good DT. I know that this draft class is loaded with them but Ballard says he wants eight quality starters on the D-Line. 

    Adrian Amos- 2 years 3.8M per year. A good tackling safety who can get the interceptions if in the right place perfect 

    Ty Montgomery- 1 year 1.1M per year. Depth and another gadget player for Reich to play with

    Bryce Callahan- 2 years 7.4M per year great slot corner can help mid field with tight ends and running backs

    Remaining Cap Space: Roughly 51M

     

    Draft: 

    TRADE: We trade our R2P21, R4P22, a future round three pick and Jacoby Brissett to the New York Giants for their R1P10

    Round 1 Pick 10 Jonah Williams, OT Alabama- Operation keep Luck standing for the next decade

    Round 1 Pick 22 Dexter Lawrence, NT Clemson - Monster NT that can get to the QB whilst stopping the run
    Round 2 Pick 3 Kelvin Harmon, WR NC State - all around a good sized receiver who can catch the ball
    Round 3 Pick 21 Gerald Willis, DT Miami- Can create some interior pressure 
    Round 5 Pick 22 Joe Giles-Harris, LB Duke - Coverage Linebacker who can tackle should be a good backup behind walker or Leonard
    Round 6 Pick 21 Mitchell Wilcox, TE South Florida- Throwing darts
    Round 7 Pick 22 Gary Jennings, WR West Virginia- Name is close to Greg Jennings (another dart)

     

    Colts 2019 Roster:

     

    Offense: 25

    QB- Luck, Osweiler

    What position are we in on a waiver wire? 

     

    I would imagine, there will be several teams interested in adding him... especially a team that plays zone. haha

    I think waiver wire order is same as draft order so we'd be around 20 or so.  I'm probably wrong,; I'm just best guessing. But it'd make us have a good safety trio. 

  11. I think Ballard likes to double up on positions in drafts to create more competition. I also went all in on this draft this year to try to speed up the "rebuilding" process. High risk high reward. I traded our first round pick this year and our first round pick next year for Oaklands first round pick 25 and 27 and their second round pick two. 

     

    25: R1P25

    EDGE JACHAI POLITE- very high ceiling perfect for robert mathis to work with

    FLORIDA

     

    27: R1P27

    DL JEFFERY SIMMONS- 3 technique with character issues can move blockers very well

    MISSISSIPPI STATE

     

    34: R2P2

    CB DEANDRE BAKER- little smaller but great cover corner

    GEORGIA

     

    36: R2P4

    DL DEXTER LAWRENCE- nose tackle can take up blockers stop the run and get to the quarterback. 

    CLEMSON

     

    51: R2P19

    CB AMANI ORUWARIYE- big corner better for zone so should fit our system well

    PENN STATE

    82: R3P18

     

    WR KELVIN HARMON- big body great awareness could be a good number 2 but we have bad luck with receivers for some reason

    NC STATE

     

    121: R4P19

    OT KALEB MCGARY- good back up at right tackle before smith got settled in right tackle was a revolving door

    WASHINGTON

     

    135: R4P33

    LB JOE GILES-HARRIS- good coverage linebacker should fit in great with our WLB & MLB.  Anthony Walker went down this week and you could tell he wasn't in the lineup

    DUKE

     

    158: R5P19

    OT ISAIAH PRINCE- ballard wants ten olinemen so he is going to keep drafting them

    OHIO STATE

     

    193: R6P18

    QB JARRETT STIDHAM- getting an option so we have an option to  trade Jacoby and get more draft capital

    AUBURN

     

    235: R7P19

    EDGE ULYSEES GILBERT III- throwing a dart in the seventh round because i like his name

    AKRON

    I havent really started up my in depth scouting this year, but last year there was a guy on Reddit (CalhounLambeau) who stepped up and essentially made a spreadsheet version of Draft Breakdown. 

     

    His 2019 list on a Google Doc can be found here:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bu7VCs3ld5efCR3fDjj_vM09KjYbY_SBDkdJHRJPOew/edit?usp=sharing

     

    Not quite as good as Draft Breakdown, but the closest I came as far as an alternative. 

    Thank you great link.

  13. The colts 1-0 mentality will prove to counter this "trap" game. This post is 90% stat based. 

     

    If you look at the last two games and then the giants: 

    The Texans had Hopkins/Miller/Watson.

    The Cowboys had Zeke/Cooper/Dak.

    The Giants got OBJ/Barkley/Eli. 

     

    I think Dallas, Houston, and the Giants are built very similar. A top ranked WR/RB then the other RB/WR is a great person to pair with. The QBs are ranked in the middle no real all star QBs. Their O-lines are all very horrible. The Defenses are kinds sporadic however.

     

    3) Hopkins            1)Zeke                  7)Luck            5)Dallas D               1)Colts O-line 16 Sacks

    15)TY                  3)Barkley            11)Eli          10) Colts D              28) Giants O-line 46 Sacks  16)OBJ         8) Miller      14)Watson     14) Houston D       31) Dallas O-line 51 Sacks

    39)Cooper              21) Mack            17)Dak             21) Giants D           32)Houston O-line 52 Sacks

     

    The WRs, RBs, and QBs are all total yards. The Defense is total yards allowed. The O-line is sacks allowed. The rankings are out of all the NFL.
