  1. As an alternative to signing Eric Fisher, I wonder how much draft capital the Lions would demand for Taylor Decker, now that they've drafted Penei Sewell.
  2. Will the Colts trade the first-round pick? [ YES ] Round 1 #21 A. Kwity Paye (EDGE) Michigan B. Samuel Cosmi (OT) Texas C. Jayson Oweh (EDGE) Penn State Round 2 #54 A. Teven Jenkins (OT) Oklahoma State B. Jaelan Philips (EDGE) Miami C. Gregory Rousseau (EDGE) Miami Round 3 (Acquired from 1st-round trade down) A. Pat Freiermuth (TE) Penn State B. Dillon Radunz (OT) North Dakota State C. Liam Eichenberg (OT) Notre Dame Round 4 #127 A. Joe Tryon (EDGE) Washington B. Spencer Brown (OT) Northern Iowa C. Brevin Jordan (TE) Miami Round 5 #165 A. Brady Christensen (OT) BYU B. Tommy Tremble (TE) Notre Dame C. Jaylen Twyman (DT) Pittsburgh Round 6 #206 A. Hunter Long (TE) Boston College B. Cameron Sample (EDGE) Tulane C. Dayo Odeyingbo (EDGE) Vanderbilt Round 7 #248 A, Kenny Yeboah (TE) Mississippi B. Quintin Morris (TE) Bowling Green C. Israel Mukuamu (S) South Carolina
  3. Even if Wentz never returns to his 2017 MVP level of play, but proves himself to be a consistently average or above-average QB, this trade would still be a huge win for Ballard. As for the most lopsided trades so far this century, sadly, the Colts would also get on that list for being on the losing end of two other deals: Giving Cleveland a 1st round pick for Trent Richardson; and trading away another 1st to move up in the 2nd round to draft Tony Ugoh. Maybe not among top 10 most lopsided, but probably top 20.
  4. Highlights and analysis of Buckner's impact on the Colts defense:
  5. More interesting than the talking heads are the comments below the video clip. 49ers fans now realize how vital Buckner was to their vaunted defense. It appears Ballard got the better part of that blockbuster trade.
  6. Why did the Colts release Al Woods?
  7. Half a dozen things need to develop in combination before Ballard would receive a legit trade offer on JB, much less seriously consider such an offer: 1. JB continues to improve his level of QB play in the final two preseason games. 2. Luck sits out the first two or three regular season games to continue healing 3. JB plays at a high level in those games and consistently displays starting-QB talent. 4. Luck gets fully healthy and resumes his elite level of play. 5. Kelly returns from suspension and balls out in practices against the starting D. 6. A playoff caliber team loses its starting QB for the season, and their backups suck. JB is worth more to the Colts than a mid-to-late round pick. A 2nd rounder? Maybe.
  8. It seems the Colts are suffering an embarrassment of riches at the TE position this season. Hopefully, no more serious injuries (knock on wood). Even Hentges is getting open and flashing good hands in preseason. He probably won't make the 53-man roster, but I'd be pleasantly surprised if he even gets to the practice squad before some other team nabs him.
  9. If that's the case, he should have gone to Phoenix or Los Angeles. We get plenty of rain here in Indy. Maybe not as much as Seattle, but way more than we need.
  10. I suspect Ballard didn't draft Amani Hooker to avoid the obvious jokes about the team employing hookers in its locker room.
  11. So many prospects and not enough picks: Round 1 - #26 A: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama B: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson C: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson Round 2a - #34 A: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Miss. State B: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson C: Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame Round 2b - #59 A: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State B: Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington C: Dre'Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State Round 3 - #89 A: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama B: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State C: Jonathan Abrams, S, Miss. State Round 4a - #129 A: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland B: Amani Hooker, S, Iowa Round 4b - #135 A: Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia B: Germaine Pratt, LB, North Carolina State Round 5 - #164 A: Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida B: Chuma Edoga, OL, USC Round 6 - #199 A: Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama B: Preston Williams, WR, Colorado State Round 7 - #240 A: Khalil Hodge, LB, Buffalo B: Edwin Alexander, DT, LSU
  12. It would be serendipity if Jeffery Simmons slid to the Colts at pick 34. I think Parris Campbell would be much better value at pick 59. Even if Ballard misses out on Campbell, he could still draft a smaller but very fast/quick WR in the 4th or 5th round to develop in the mold of T.Y., such as Mecole Hardman (4.33 speed).
  13. Gotta keep re-bumping this post. It's become a good luck charm. It's now meme worthy.
  14. Interesting: They rated Adrian Peterson as the "Biggest Steal" among the 2018 free agent signings. The runner-up in that category was Pierre Desir.
