    In all seriousness I kind of like this idea.  Colts trade away one of the NFL's current top centers with Kelly and replace him with another stud coming out of Alabama, a much younger version.  Obviously a risk here with Dickerson and his late season injury so why am doubling down on drafting another center for a short-term stop gap but also feel Pinter can step in right away as needed.  Other key factor is as others have pointed out going low cost draftee to fill our void at LT.  Now the Colts if they could pull this trade off might even be able to consider trading up again with say the Jets and take a QB.  Honestly still have reservations about Wentz and if he is the true long-term answer the Colts are searching for.  If not groom the young QB under Wentz for a year and cut Wentz free.

     

    The Colts do have a lot of pending FAs to make decisions about.  With the trade scenario the Colts still have ~$9-10 million in cap space left over.  The only thing with that in mind is changing being honest and losing our 2nd draft pick and having an additional 5th round back and select a depth WR since wouldn't be getting a good WR early in Round 2.  Round 6 much rather with the extra projected cap savings on hand sign Texans LT Roderick Johnson.  At least he has experience in this Division then target LCB Tay Gowan (UCF) whom opted out this past season but is considered a sleeper this draft.

     

    When your done being narrow-minded look the rest over and be honest see if this is doable and fills our major voids.  

    You're not getting #5 with Ryan Kelly and a 5th, this isn't Madden, you're living in a fantasy land

    Let alone the Bengals would never do this trade considering they have their choice at every non QB blue chip prospect 

     

    We might aswell offer Eason and a 4th for the #1 pick..

    And to top it off "Charles Darrisaw" doesn't exist in this class, not gonna pay much attention to a half baked post..

  2. Draft season is here, this is my 3rd positional report.

    I'm going to be doing detailed positional scouting reports on certain players I pick and posting them here.

     

    CBs, WRs, and QBs are done, DEs, OLBs, DTs, and OTs are in the works.

    All of these are my personal opinions on the player from the games I watched of them, always up for feedback, questions, debate, and more!

     

    Contains 12 WRs and 3 TEs

    Chase is WR1 although Bateman is my personal favorite in the class

  3. Edition 2 is now out.

    I'm going to be doing detailed positional scouting reports on certain players I pick and posting them here.

    CBs and QBs are done, WRs, DEs, OLBs, DTs, and OTs are in the works.

    All of these are my personal opinions on the player from the games I watched of them, always up for feedback, questions, and debate

     

    I picked the 6 QBs starter worthy QBs in the draft

    I fully expected one of them to be a Colt but with the Wentz trade it looks like that won't be the case.

    Lawrence is obvious QB1, Wilson QB2.

     

     

    FHHT7BBS7NGAZBNYUXLNTHVCBQ.jpg

    Trevor Lawrence QB Clemson

    Pros: 

    Stands 6’6”

    Hand size is 10”

    One of the best QB prospects in the last 30 years

    Will be the face of a franchise, he’s proven he can be the face of a team

    Won't crack at expectations, has being experience being under pressure by national media

    All he did was play against top tier competition and win

    41-0 in High School, 34-2 in college

    Humble, hard working, and still has upside

    He will fit in any pro offense

    Fantastic arm, he can throw on any platform

    Timing, touch, precision, accuracy is all there

    Throws a fastball in tight windows if he needs to

    Has rare deep ball accuracy

    Outstanding in the pocket

    Doesn’t crumble when his first read is covered

    Works through his progressions quickly

    Excellent internal system and his mechanics are incredible

    Great decision maker, doesn’t turn the ball over

    Will hurt NFL defenses with his legs, can be a dangerous runner

    Has every trait you want, and they’re all at such a high level already


     

    Cons:

    Can stick on his first read for too long at times

    His feet don’t always follow his eyes
    Ball placement to maximize yards can improve

     

    Any negatives with Lawrence are essentially nit-picky and are minor issues that can get fixed quickly

    He's as close to a perfect prospect as you can get

     

    Projection: 1st Overall

     


    1187734964.jpeg

    Elite mobility, dangerous runner, will hurt you in the open field

    Avoids turnovers

    Can throw off platform and on the run

    Accurate passer, leads his receivers open and throws with good touch and precision, can fire it into tight windows

    He’s tough as hell and he showcased it against Clemson

     

    Cons:

    Pass rush can rattle him

    Footwork needs improvement

    Pocket awareness and blitz recognition needs to be improved

    Often freezes when blitzers are coming

    Needs to be able to pass with pressure in his face

    Slow processor, progressions need to be better

    Field vision can improve

    Needs to use his checkdown more

    Struggled early in his career

    Needs to add weight, he’s only 209

    Accuracy and mechanics drop off when under pressure

    Didn’t play against elite competition

    One-year wonder

    Threw many passes that got his receiver popped by a defensive player, had atleast 12+ passes that resulted in his receivers getting battered

    Collapsed and became uncharacteristic against Coastal after repeated pressure and a few cheap shots

    Needs to be faster through his progressions

    Torn labrum in his throwing shoulder

     

    Projection: Top 8

    Took snaps under center and ran play action at NDSU

    Only 20 years old

     

    Cons:

    Played at North Dakota State

    He’s still a raw talent, might not be the starter Week 1

    One year of play

    One game in 2020

    Mechanics need work, they’re not pretty

    Sluggish footwork

    Relies on his athleticism too much

    Played against weak competition, was often the best player on the field

    Offense at NDSU was streamlined to heavily favor him

    You can call me a pessimist all you want it doesn't change the fact that I've thrown nothing but stats and video proof at you

    You also don't disregard his talent by being on a team that couldn't keep him upright either. 

    Which is not entirely his OL's fault

    He takes the 8th most sacks on the 16th most pressures in the league

     

    If anyone can fix him I suppose it's Frank but I'm not gonna act like we're getting the best version of Wentz

    Some of these are throw always too because of pressure. Some are throwing them to where only the WR has a chance, low risk- big reward....I can make a low light video like this and make Brady look bad. The reality is somewhere in between the highlights and this low light video is where the truth lies. We should surely all know that.

    It's not a "low light video" if that was the majority of 2020

     

    You don't just brush off his last season because he was an MVP candidate years before

    @tvturner much respect. I appreciate anybody that does this level of work on their own. Do you think Wade projects better as a S at the next level? If you evaluated him as such, would it change your opinion?

    I definitely think Wade's only chance at being a Top 100 pick is converting to Safety

     

    He's shown he can't be an outside corner and his upside is much higher at S than CB

     

    It might change a little if I were to evaluate him as pure safety but he hasn't said that's what he wants to do yet

  9. Just now, krunk said:

    He didnt bc its conditional. Do you understand what that means? It only happens if the dude plays well and he stays on the field. Two significant IFs. If he doesnt then the 2022 thing never happens.

    Yes I understand what conditional means

    There's a low chance he gets hurt with our OL

     

    And our roster is good enough to make the playoffs in spite of him

  10. Draft season is upon us and it is my favorite season!

    I'm going to be doing detailed positional scouting reports on certain players I pick and posting them here.

    CBs and QBs are done, WRs, DEs, OLBs, DTs, and OTs are in the works.

    All of these are my personal opinions on the player from the games I watched of them, always up for feedback, questions, debate, and more!

     

    There's 9 players in this, 7 true corners and 2 hybrid corner/safety players. For Scheme Fit, some players fit better on defenses that use their abilities more than we would. It's not meant to be a knock on them or a sign that I wouldn't draft them. 

    Caleb Farley is my CB1 in this class.

    Versatility shows as he can stack the box, play the slot, and play in the third level

    Understands responsibilities against the run and sets the edge well

    Will get physical with TEs with jams at the line and doesn’t allow seam routes to be made open

    Often knocks receivers off their routes in zone
