  1. We go with stop gap at LT for start of season. hopefully Fischer slides in by 3rd-4th game of season. This s a good move. We get a #1 LT for money only.
  2. the more I listen to Ballard the more I am impressed with his passion, insight and ability. He is a solid GM. I watched the video on the Colts War Room. I was impressed with the explanation offered on why they were picking the players they picked. Ballard and Reich are a great combo and along with Isray make a great team.
  3. I would break this up into eras. Baltimore Colts up to 72: They are all in the HOF 1950's - 1972. I would sprinkle in guys like Mike Curtis, Tom Matte, Ted Hendricks Tom Mitchell, Logan and Volk in secondary...... Baltimore Colts 72 until move to Indy: Bert Jones, Llydell Mitchell, Roger Carr, Raymond Chester, Colts D-Line Indy Colts (Manning era): Manning, EDGE, Harrison, Wayne, Dallas Clark, Bob Sanders, Freeney, Mathis, Saturday, Vinitari...... Indy Colts (post Manning): Luck, Hilton, Leonard, our current running backs,
  4. We need a playmaking TE. He is an added weapon in our receiving attack and Reich likes to see TE's. A bit surprised we picked him over BJ of Miami but they must see something they like
  5. Nothing wrong with Dayo pick. He can play all over the front line. I thought we would get an OT in round 2 but the top option for OT Round 2 were picked. Ballard claims Dayo was their top choice in round 2 - which may be spin or he felt that this guy has first round talent and we are getting him in the mid 2nd round. We could have used a 3rd round pick as we lost out on Brown, Christenson and Mayfield. I would think our top draft option for an OT now would bee D'Ante Smith or we may draft Trey Smith from Tennessee who is an OG but has as tackle body. For next 4 picks I hope we
  6. Hopefully he is ready by October. We have added a lot of talent too defensive line with these picks. We still need a LB, secondary for defense. On Offense we need OT, TE and a WR in that order. I would feel better if we can get another pick and someone find a way to get Brown, Mayfield or Christensen for OT.
  7. Next highest ranked OT is Spencer Brown who is probably 3rd or 4th round pick. Big run on OT's in 2nd round threw us a curve ball. Dayo is a good player - not sure when he will be back from torn achilles tear. thought we might go LB if we were going too pass on OT option.
  8. I am a bit surprised that Paye lasted until our pick at 21. I felt we would go OT at 21 if we did not trade down. I cannot disagree with CB pick. It is a great pick and there are plenty of OT options available that we can grab at 54. I am hopeful that CB can make a move to pick up #3 and if possible another #4 or #5. Would love for us to grab OT, TE, LB, DB (Corner or Safety) and WR. This could be another great draft and Paye can give us the EDGE player we have lacked since Freeney and Mathis.
  9. It is a good pick. He is the best EDGE available with a lot of upside. There are a lot of OT options available in draft. Colts can still get a solid OT in 2nd. I am a bit surprised we did not trade back but at 21 Ballard had his option off Paye, Darrisaw or Newsome. Would still like for us to get a 3rd round pick but that may be hard now unless CB can turn 54 into 2 picks
  10. We also need a TE. I think we can add wr on day 3. hopefully we can find a TE in the draft as well unless Ballard can wrangle a trade for a TE
  11. I think he trades back as well. I think he can get a top OT at end of Round 1 for early Round 2. He will not go through a draft with only 6 picks.I think he will end up with 9 picks as well. our needs in order are: 1. LT 2. EDGE 3. CB 4. TE 5. WR 6. LB 7. Safety 8. DT I would not be surprised if we draft more than 1 EDGE rusher.
  12. I believe we will trade down to pick up more draft picks. Either trade down toward end of Round 1 or we trade into round 2 and add picks in round 3-4. LT is still our #1 need. EDGE would be #2. I rather get a solid LT with our top pick and look at day 2 options for EDGE. We also need to add a CB (some good options available), a WR (some good day 2-3 options available), a TE (there are a few options to target), and I would look at LB, S and DT in day 2-3 as well. I see Ballard resigning some of our remaining FA's and he may add some depth options from elsewhere.
  13. Like the draft picks: I doubt Colts resign Burton. Houston is on bubble. They either resign him or Autry. Could let both walk too. I do think Colts will get EDGE out of FA pool. They may also sign WR - pretty good list receivers in FA market. Robinson would be great pick up if we also sign Trubisky. Like Henry signing. I may be OK about Trubisky signing - would not cost us draft capital and perhaps Reich can coach him up. I think we will also look at OT in draft at least for depth or a LT option if by chance until our rookie pick can claim the job. Resign: -Rhodes
  14. Tell has good upside at CB or S.
