  1. After looking over the list I came up with and Mack requesting to be traded I would contact the Patriots and trade for SS Adrian Phillips. The Colts already view their safeties as being interchangeable so keep Phillips at SS and move Willis to FS. The Patriots don't have much of a running game this year behind Damien Harris and Mack should step in and make an impact. Both players are upcoming FAs after this year and figure may have to make some roster pay adjustments to get back on the good side of cap space post-trades.
  2. Potential Safety trades along with PFF evaluations and OTC FA status for current roster backups and depth players with potential as starters-rotational roles: FS Jaquan Johnson (Bills) PFF 2019 74.1 and a 90.0 for 2021 – 2023 UFA DeShon Elliott (Ravens) 2021 PFF 68.4, 2020 66.6, - 2022 UFA Brandon Stephens (Ravens) 2021 60.1 – rookie playing well as backup Jaylinn Hawkins (Falcons) 2021 PFF 74.1 – 2024 UFA Mike Edwards (TB Bucs) 2021 PFF 67.0, 2020 77.0 – 2023 UFA Marquise Blair (Seahawks) 2021 PFF 56.8, 2020 48.5, 2019 78.5 – 2023 UFA – 2019 2nd round pick Caden Sterns (Broncos) – rookie PFF 74.3 – Thursday game 10/21 Juju Hughes (Rams) – listed 3rd on depth – 2021 PFF 67.1 – 2022 ERFA SS Damar Hamlin (Bills) PFF 2021 86.5 – 2025 UFA Adrian Phillips (Patriots) PFF 2021 74.4, 2020 66.2 – 2022 UFA Jayron Kearse (Cowboys) backup 2021 PFF 71.5, 2019 89.0 – 2022 UFA – deep with a 3rd rookie Israel Mukuamu DeAndre Houston-Carson (Bears) 2021 PFF 79.9, 2020 90.0 – 2022 UFA
  3. Adding another DE seems be low priority for the Colts. The Colts are getting good results from Paye and Lewis. Even Rochell had another really strong game with limited snaps. While AQM and Banogu both been playing somewhat decent. Time will tell how well Dayo can perform. Our DB group not sure what is happening this year but everyone seems down except RYS. Keyes had another terrible outing and we probably should be rotating in Chesley instead. Willis looked good watching the game but still some issues he needs to clean up. Even Blackmon allowing too many passes. Our depth at safety is already an area of concern. After 6 weeks, some off-season FA targets to add are: SS Jaquiski Tartt (49ers) SS Jayron Kearse (Cowboys) FS Marcus Williams (Saints) FS Xavier Woods (Vikings) FS Jessie Bates III (Cincy) FS Erik Harris ( Falcons)
  4. WR Drake London was my top target but he went two picks prior so I traded back. There are a few WR's am hoping we can target in the draft: WR Drake London WR David Bell WR Jahan Dotson WR Romeo Doubs WR Dontay Demus WR Treylon Burks WR Justyn Ross WR Jalen Tolbert WR John Metchei III Wouldn't be surprised to see a big shakeup of the Colts WR group after this season. Hilton and Pascal both am projecting to be gone. I wouldn't mind going after Amari Cooper depending on how Dallas manages their cap situation. As for FA targets I would try to acquire Courtland Sutton or Christian Kirk. My big board CBs are: CB Roger McCreary CB Trent McDuffie CB Ahmad Gardner CB Kyler Gordon CB Martin Emerson CB Matt Hankins CB Derion Kendrick CB Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson CB Mykael Wright For LTs continue to keep tabs on LT Kellen Diesch. Diesch at one point was the 10th highest graded run blocker in the nation and 5th among OTs. Am not sure what Diesch current PFF grade is now but he did have a 90.6 grade earlier this season. He also earned PFF TOW honors in Week 6. The other player is RT Max Mitchell. Mitchell has played LT, LG and recently RT. Last year Mitchell earned second-team all-Sun Belt recognition. PFF had a season grade of 91.3 for Max and he has earned PFF TOW 3 honors along with his whole team earning honors in both Weeks 3 and 5. Other notable OL are Charles Cross, Darian Kinnard and Nocholas Petit-Frere. Ikem Ekwonu has also been playing well this season and PFF had a season grade of 93.8 and he earned TOW honors in Week 2. Tight-end is also going to be an issue I fear after this season. However, we should have 3 targets on our minds already with Mike Gesicki, Dallas Goedert and Will Dissly. As for the NFL Draft the only TE that I want badly is Isaiah Likely who has earned a PFF grade of 95.9 this season and earned PFF Weeks 5 and 6 TOW honors. Expect Likely to be drafted in Round 2.
  5. I used PFN's Mock Draft Simulator and guess shouldn't been surprised to see a lot of good college players not even ranked towards the top 100. Had to forfeit all Round 1 for future draft picks assuming we will only have our Round 2 pick. Computer prompted me for all trade requests directly from other teams and I couldn't be happier. 50. via CIN + 2023 3rd for IND 2023 5th 131. via DAL (131, 142, 172) for IND 105, 255 142. via DAL 170. via BUF-NE (BUF 117 – NE gets 128, 170,246) (NE gets 149, IND receives 170, 202, 246) 172. via DAL 202. via NE 246. via NE OT Kellen Diesch as the last pick obviously no way he lasts until final round but somehow he only ranked out near 1000th had to search his name directly like a few others on my own draft board.
  6. Always a small chance we could draft USC WR Drake London which would pair nicely with another former USC WR Michael Pittman Jr.
  7. Think the Colts are big risk/reward dreamers as others are pointing out and it appears history is working against the Colts. I am not a big Dayo fan. Wasn't impressed with him in college and his injury totally removed him from my draft board. The Colts needed other key starters and could have waited to draft or acquired a future edge player. The start to this season am seeing my fears realized but do hope Dayo proves me wrong. Do think the Colts should be more cautious drafting injured players and go with more of the proven healthy next BPA.
  8. I had Hooker as a borderline draft bust based on his injury history and wanted Budda Baker instead. Fast forward to the future and Baker stayed healthy and has had a better career. If Hooker could of stayed healthy they both might have been comparable.
  9. Unless we change DC and/or become more aggressive our DL isn't going to change much. Next year I figure Lewis and AQM should get resigned and partner up with Paye and Odeyingbo. Bucker and Stewart will remain starters but at some point we will need to replace Stewart in the near future. The draft class does have some very good IDL players with either Davis (Jordan/Tyler), Travis Jones, Logan Hall and Matthew Butler. Very little options in FA but a couple backups am interested in like Harrison Phillips and Tim Settle. Continuing with the draft and potential Round 2 selections at Edge could be Kinglsey Enagbare, Adam Anderson, Drake Jackson, Nik Bonitto, Mitchell Agude. Other Edge players to keep an eye on are Jordan Strachan, Arnold Ebiketi, and Zachary Carter. Really don't know how much more we can add to our DL to make them improve other than a coaching/tactic change to a more aggressive attack. Sadly its one of the negatives I have had about the Colts over the past few years where we don't hurry and pressure other teams. We have the talent just not fully utilizing the players to their full potential.
  10. Probably be very low odds but still wouldn't hurt to deal-no-deal offer
  11. Two players from the Chiefs who would add depth and be capable starters are: FS Juan Thornhill DT Khalen Saunders To me the Colts don't really have a solid backup option behind Blackmon and too many of our DBs contracts are expiring after this season. Same goes with our backup DL and Saunders would give us a year extension same as Thornhill as both are 2023 UFAs.
  12. As for recent frustration, both Harbaugh brothers' teams managed to escape with late victories over the past few days. Finally, the thought of giving away a Top-10 pick to Philly makes things even worse If things continue to downward spiral.
  13. Unfortunately, we are not the only Club having issues fielding a healthy to competent offensive line. Think the sad reality is colleges are not full preparing lineman for the NFL the way they used to do. At the end of the season a lot of teams will be shopping for upgrades and looking to the draft including the Colts. Problem with the Colts we have too many other areas of need and will more likely target depth OL later in the draft. OT Max Mitchell (Louisiana Laffayette), RG/C Ben Brown (Ole Miss), or LG/C Mike Caliendo are currently on my watch list. Outside of our Center Ryan Kelly and RT Braden Smith do we have a solid starters. LG Chris Reed proving himself as a potential starting replacement for Nelson. Finding a trade partner for a future LT and taking over their contract on a cheap is an option allowing us to sign someone like RG Corbet would still keep our OL salary cap within limits.
  14. For all what is was worth drafting Nelson I must say the 2018 draft class for the Colts was one of the better ones. Do enjoy having Nelson on the team. However, at the end of the season it all becomes a business decision. Sad reality is looking over all the other Clubs rosters each team has their own issues with offensive lineman. Most drafted a rookie LT only to plug them at RT or move inside to guard. Our biggest issue is also same as most everyone else with poor play and injuries. Think the general consensus is we will not have a Round 1 draft pick and most likely not target a LT in Round 2 this year. As for Free Agency, nobody stands out to target. If Nelson could kick out to LT and play lights out that would be awesome. Right now after doing some fact-finding have a few different scenarios but all depends on how the rest of this season plays out since players in question are now on IR regarding Nelson's future and our LT situation. Option 1 - Hope Eric Fisher can regain his form and be dominate but he is trending on the wrong side of 30's and his game sadly has been on the decline and doubt he gets an extension this off-season unless he finds his younger inner self. Fisher like most older left tackles isn't the exception to the rule and isn't a Trent Williams or David Bakhtiari. Option 2 - Indianapolis trades Nelson to the Packers for LT Elgton Jenkins who has been playing really well for injured stud LT David Bakhtiari. Unlike Fisher, Bakhtiari has been one of the best left tackles for a long-time. I see Bakhtiari playing for many more years similar to Trent Williams (49ers) making Jenkins expendable as a trade option plus acquiring draft pick(s). Packers current LG Jon Runyan off to a decent year but adding someone like Nelson and trading Elgton might be ideal as a win-win for both Clubs. Option 3 - Indianapolis trades Nelson to the Lions for LT Penei Sewell. Never did understand why the Lions would draft Sewell when they have LT Taylor Decker still playing at a high level. Again like most Clubs they moved Sewell initially over to RT and Sewell can even play better than Lion's fill-in RT Matt Nelson. Sewell has really struggled at LT with Decker now on IR. Not sure taking a year off college helped or the move to RT and trying to relearn how to play his original natural position as he has regressed. To me with this option it will all depend on how well Sewell finishes off the season before attempting to make a deal. Obviously a risk/reward scenario here hoping its just first year learning curve and he can put it all together in Year 2. Bottom line is the Colts have got to find a answer at LT. Can always draft a LT that can move to LG but not this off-season nor early in the upcoming draft according to my crystal ball.
  15. Guess will need to find Doug's thread but my initial asset and target would be RG Austin Corbett with a 4-year deal around $40 million which isn't much more than what Glowinski is making now ~$2.5 million more-ish.
