    2019 WR draft / film notes

    Late round Jazz Ferguson WR North Western??? I think his combine # is kinda close to Mike Evans...
  2. Appreciate the reply and your opinion. Definitely can see your prospective. I think option 1 gives us depth at a position that of recent years have been riddled with injuries. It also can help us evaluate Wilson (rather we keep him or not). The second option is far less appealing to me personally bc I want the Chiefs to regress. I agree that you could probably grab alot more but I just went with the online draft chart point system. I know we all assume that Ballard love his draft pick and if he stays on the hot streak four 2nd round picks could do wonders for our team if he gets the right guy
  3. Two highly unlikely scenarios in which I included a 4 round mock draft with each trade. Trade the 26th pick For Eagles Rasual Douglass CB, 53rd and 57th The Eagles get 2 first rounder and plenty of ammunition to reload for a Superbowl run. With Darby coming back into the fold they can use Douglas as trade bait. The Eagles still have Mills, Darby, Sidney Jones at the CB position. The Colts flip the no. 26 pick into 3 players. Rasual Douglas has 2 more years on his rookie contract. He is 6'2 and has great zone awareness unfortunately on the Eagles he doesn't get any playtime unless its a injury. The Eagles can grab Greg Little OT to solidify their offensive line and prep for the future without Jason Peters. Mack Wilson LB to make up for the loss of their LB Hicks in free agency. Mack has range and the ability to cover TEs Leaving them with two 4th rounders, a 5th and a 6th to fill out the rest of their roster. Mock 1 2. Jeffrey Simmons DT Mississippi State A powerful defender that has been compared to Fletcher Cox 2. Charles Omenihu DE Texas Multi postion defensive lineman who can stay on the field for 3 downs. 2. Juan Thornhill Safety Virginia Covers like a CB, range to take away half the field 2. Joe Jackson DE Miami Long arms, high motor, poor man Brian Burns 3. Isaiah Prince OT Ohio State Has improved at every year, physical tools are there must get doen mechanics 4. Anthony Ratliff-Williams WR North Carolina Strong hands, great special team returner, good blocker 4. Michael Jackson SR CB Miami Tall CB that excels in zone, good tackler Trade Down Scenario 2 Trade 34 We once again capitalize on moving back turning one pick into 3 players. Depending on who we sign in free agency this maybe a great option to get young players that maybe consider a reach but could still contribute to the team. For Kansas City Chiefs 61 (2nd), 64 (2nd) and next year 5th At 34 the Chiefs can grab Paris Campbell to help lessen the blow of a possible Tyreek Hill suspension. This may seem like a reach but Paris wont make it to pick 61. After a potential suspension the idea of Hill, Kelce and Campbell will make defensive coordinators lose sleep. Mock Draft 2 1. Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Vision catching and pass protection makes him a welcome addition to the RBBC 2. Joejuaun Williams CB Vanderbilt A terrific CB in many coverages with fluid hips and height/long arms to press 2. Gerald Willis DT Miami A monster in the middle that can stuff the run and eat up double teams to free DEs for one on ones 2. Riley Ridley WR Georgia Great release of the line and advanced route running compared to fellow WR 3. Austin Bryant DE Clemson Doesn't have the best bend but find ways to collapse the line and pressure QBs 4. Renell Wren DT Arizona State University Raw unfiltered strength 4. Dru Samia OT/G Oklahoma Has the height, frame and feet to be a tackle. Just need mechanics and experience of holding a block against non big 12 opponents.
  4. Going into a off season where Andrew Luck isn't a question mark may have free agents looking at us like the prom queen. We should be a hot commodity (yep I have my fandom glasses on). Still by some chance we miss out on some high profile free agents should Ballard take a gamble/risk by looking to aquire one or all of these players. Turning a OLB into a DE Anthony Barr 6'5 250lbs 26 years old https://youtu.be/BW11ukvUEWY We seen names like Preston Smith, Za'Darius Smith, Dee Ford, and even Shane Ray as a possibility for the Colts for defensive end. All of these players are OLB for 3-4 defense. Height, weight, speed, athleticism and age Barr is on par with the names above. Last training camp he started taking reps at DE. His size and speed compares to his former teammate Danielle Hunter (6'6 240lbs) who got paid. Barr also provides the ability to disguise blitzes because of his ability to drop into a zone. Even if you can't get to the QB we seen how tip passes can disrupt drives and his height and arm length (33 1/2). A look at next year schedule provides Barr a good chance to transition to having a hand in the ground. We face Texans (2x), Denver, Chargers, Buccaneers, Radiers, and Miami that all have either bad lines and or a stationary QB. Looking at Margus Hunt growth in this system and maybe the possibility that the Vikings played him in the wrong position. Would this be a wise move to gamble on Barr. A 4th round pick for a Reserve/PUP List Rodney Anderson 6'1 220lbs https://youtu.be/utferOWkERo Trying to follow in the footsteps of all the great OU rbs Anderson injury history could be a big red flag for some but not us. The Colts have a crowded backfield with Mack, Hines, Wilkins and Jonathan Williams for now. Drafting Anderson could essentially be for mid season or next season but he could be worth it. His blend of size, soft hands, power and elusiveness is similar to Joe Mixon. The one two punch of Mack and Anderson could be similar what Atlanta had with Freeman and Coleman. The draw back is Marcus Latimore taken by the 49ers in the 4th round in 2013. Rodney hasn't proven the ability to stay healthy but a off season plus 6 weeks of nfl facilities, nutrition and trainers could turn his luck around. A incentive base year CB contract Jason Verrett 5'11 190lbs 27 years old https://youtu.be/clH-6HnHc6s 25 games played since being drafted in 2014 it sounds crazy to invest in a guy like this. Verrett when on the field has proven to be a top CB. Ronald Darby is in a similar situation coming off of a injury. Verrett gives us the ability to examine Quincy, keep Desir and strengthen the depth of our CBs at a much cheaper cost. Quincy started 5 games and Desir started 12 this past year leaving room for Verrett to get some starts and playing time to reach a few incentives in a contract (also factoring the amount of time teams are in the nickle defense). Playing against Flacco, Mariota, Winston and Watson he could see alot of lame duck or errant passes in his vicinity. The Chargers have a history of top players being injured (Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry, Joey Bosa, Melvin Gordon and more). We don't necessarily have a better history but maybe a change can provide Verrett a season to show what he can do. Without the pressure/expectations of being a starter Verrett could be apart of a good to great secondary. Terminator 2/David Irving 2.0 Shawn Oakman 6'8 287lbs 26 years old https://youtu.be/3hiTIDOgn2Y Sadly for this man 3 years of his career was taken away by an accusation that took 45 minutes of a jury to find him not guilty. Shawn Oakman was a physical marvel, but pretty raw as far as skills and rush moves (bull rush and push pull move). Similar to David Irving his size and ability makes him intriguing, off the field he has issues (dismissed for conduct at Penn State and assault which was never filed). A 2 or 3 year deal where the Colts would have to be patience with his growth and development maybe in line. Getting him in football shape and condition would be a must. Oakman would be similar to a draft pick and probably could be stashed on our pratice squad. If he is able to bounce back and add a spin move (Mathis I'm looking at you) he could become a redemption story. Is he worth the risk PR wise? If you were in Ballard shoes would you roll the dice on any of these guys.

    Who you got at 26?

    I think the packers took him
  6. Mr. Too Proud

    Who you got at 26?

    I think the browns chose him in this mock
  7. Mock Draft 1st * Cincinnati Bengals Dwanye Haskins QB Cincinnati trades 2019 1st, 2nd and 4th 2020 2nd Cordy Glenn OT For Arizona Cardinals 1st round pick Cincinnati hit the refresh button and gains a ton of cap. Andy Dalton can be traded or cut without any penalties. Haskins step into a division with a new QB at 2 out of the 3 other teams. As well as weapons in Green and Mixon. Arizona has alot of needs. They recieve big help on the line. Hot take I think Bosa will refuse to interview with the cardinals. 2. 49ers Joey Bosa DE 3. Jets Cody Ford OT 4. * Washington Redskins Kyler Murray QB Washington trades 2019 1st and 3rd, 2020 1st Josh Norman Raiders trade 2019 1st round Washington is in a tough position cap wise. They have a great line for Kyler to play behind. As well as Guice and other weapons that can help him in Gruden creative offense. Raiders gets 2 first rounds and Norman fits the veteran mold similar to Nelson being brought in last year. 5. Tampa Bay Quinnen Williams DT 6. * Dolphins Drew Lock QB Dolphins trade this year 1st and 3rd, 2020 2nd round and Xavien Howard CB Giants trade 2019 1st round pick 7. Jaguars Rashan Gary DE/DT 8. Lions Josh Allen DE 9. Buffalo DK Metcalf WR 10. Denver Greedy Williams CB 11. * Arizona Brian Burns OLB 12. Green Bay Monteaz Sweat DE 13. Giants Jonah Williams OT/G 14. Atlanta Ed Oliver DT 15. Raiders Devin White LB 16. Carolina TJ Hockenson TE 17. Browns Christian Wilkins DT 18. Vikings Jawaan Taylor OT 19. Titans Jachai Polite OLB 20. Pittsburgh Steelers Deandre Baker CB 21. Seahawks Marquise Brown WR 22. Ravens Jaylen Furgeson OLB 23. Houston Andre Dillard OT 24. Raiders N'Keal Harry WR 25. Eagles Parris Campbell WR 26. COLTS on the clock Pick 32 the Patriots trade to Giants Patriots recieves Janoris Jenkins, Giants 2nd and both 4th rounds this year Giants picks Jarrett Stidum QB Cardinals trade draft pick 33 and swap 5th round picks For Antonio Brown So with the draft laid out in front of you who are you going with at 26? Lets see your best mock draft.

    Trade back temptation

    Oh i read it wrong and went to a draft chart which numerically our 26th and those 2 second rounders were close in value..... my bad brodie
  9. Mr. Too Proud

    Trade back temptation

    Yup I think the 9ers with Solomon and Armstead have alot of options rather thats drafting Bosa or Allen with the 1st pick and later in the 3rd a player like Zach Allen from Boston College really make the blow of lossing DeForest a lot more manageable. Especially if our pick lands them a AB. If the Steelers use the transition tag on Bell our 3rd round pick should be able to grab him as well.

    Trade back temptation

    DON'T forget about the Jet pick.... thats 4 picks in the 2nd. A nice idea thanks 4 breaking out the trade chart who do you have in mind with those 4 second rounders?
  11. We finished the season strong. Some of us may look at this as a disadvantage in the draft but every year someone always trade back into the 1st round. Could we be sellers? Is there a package you can think of that would make you think about moving back into a lower spot into the 1st or early 2nd round pick? If we knock free agency out the park would moving up to get a elite player or moving down to gain more players (development projects and lower contracts) makes more sense for us. Here are a few scenarios of some trade back that may help us knock out 2 birds with one stone. Trade 1 Arizona trades us Robert Nkemdiche DT Ricky Seal Jones TE Pick 33 For Colts Pick 26 This trade gives Arizona a crack at owning the draft. A trade down plus this trade could net them 2 first round talent and more to jump start the rebuild. Colts get a very talented DT who may need a change of scenery and scheme. Seal-Jones showed the year before he has the potential to become a top 15-20 TE. Last year he couldn't get in sync with the new QB. Giving these two players would net them a higher pick then they could reclaim from a compensary pick. Trade 2 Rams Robert Woods WR Pick 31 For Colts Pick 26 6th round pick The Rams went all in for the Superbowl this year. Their team will look very different next year and they are poised for a Jaguars like fall. Moving up while gaining some cap relief could be very attractive for them. Cooks and Kupp should make a dynamic duo. Woods would give us that strong hand chain mover on a relatively cheap 3 year contract. Trade 3 Raiders Gareon Conley Jordy Nelson 2nd round pick 5th round pick For Colts Pick 26 Compensary 4th round pick The Raiders clearly doesn't have to much confidence in Conley. We may need to bring in a replacement if we can't resign Desir and a cheap rookie contract gives us room for creativity in FA. Jordy Nelson (3 million) would be us kicking the can down the road and rooting for Cain and/or another rookie to step up next year. Nelson provides a threat as a no.2 and bring alot of experience to the wr corp. Trade 4 49ers DeForest Buckner 2nd round 5th round pick For Colts Pick 26 3rd round pick DeForest Buckner had 12 sacks this past year. At 6'7 300lbs he has the frame to play inside or out and immediately starts on the other side of Sheard. As a 24 year old he would be our future able to lock down one of the DE positions for the next 10 years. We pay heavily with 2 picks but at pick 26 is there talent like he provides. The 49ers save on the money(Forest next contract) and make a move for AB or jump back in the 1st round to make a splash. (Maybe they end up with Bosa and AB) Most of these trades are about 7 to 10 spots down. With us owning the Jets pick and players that will fall or that we may love but may seem like a reach in the first (Charles Omenihu, Kelvin Harmon and Jaylon Ferguson to name a few) trading down maybe a option we shouldn't just dismiss.

    Edge Rushers

    I know I'm in the minority but..... I'm really looking at Ezekiel Ansah as a viable option at DE. He is similar to Demarcus Lawrence but he’s a little older. A two to three year deal still gets him a big paycheck somewhere else if he can prove to stay healthy with us. I know the draft is deep for Dline man but I think we fail to think about development and the learning curve of the NFL. If you look at where we drafting at would we really expect to get a impact/starter if we go D-line? Grabbing Ansah gives our DEs we drafted last year some time to develop and switching him in and out keeps Ansah fresh. Could the Lions be our farm team jk but like I said above I’m probably in the minority.

    NFL Potential Storylines 2019

    Thanks 4 taking a look at it and participating

    NFL Potential Storylines 2019

    A look around the NFL and some good story lines for 2019. I know we are locked in on Free Agency and the draft but here is a quick escape from the norm. How many of these can come true, what are the ripple effects of these moves? Do any of these scare you or changes our chance at winning a Superbowl? 1. Antonio Brown to the Packers for (New Orleans) 1st round pick A-Rod gets his best weapons yet. Adams and Brown skills will make them the best WR tandom in the NFL. A new coach and playbook will make Green Bay a force again in the NFC north. This move surpass what the Bears and the Vikings did last season. 2. A Brotherly Trade (Derek Carr to the Redskins) We seen the Harbaoughs pull this off with Boldin moving from the ravens to the 49ers for a 6th round pick. The Grudens will not be out done. Raiders give up Derek Carr 1st round pick this year (Cowboys) For Josh Norman 1st round pick 2nd round pick this and next year 3. Sean Payton to the Cowboys Sean Payton contract is up, The Saints don't have many draft picks and went all in this year. Drew Brees is a year older and there is no No. 2 WR in sight. Payton cash in and get a 10 year contract similar to Gruden with a young team thats in a good to decent cap situation. 4. The Patriots Reload The Patriots signs both Demaryius Thomas and Tavon Austin to cheap contracts. 5. Ryan Tannehill plays a full season The dolphins have been vocal as far as trying to draft a QB next year. I haven't seen a lame duck year for a QB like this. Alex Smith had Mahomes and Flacco had Jackson waiting on the roster already. Tannehill plays a full season and ruins the Dolphins chances of getting a top 5 pick. 6.Tampa Bay wins the NFC south Atlanta loses a few offensive weapons, and have new coordinators, Cam Newton surgery and if you didn't read above I think Sean Payton goes to Dallas. 7. Teddy Bridgewater becomes the Eagles backup 8. Nick Foles, Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton will play musical chairs at QB Teams like Carolina Panthers (1 year healing time for Cam after surgery, similar to Luck) the Giants, 49ers, Bengals and Titans all have decisions looming at QB. (Notice I didn't say the Jags) 9. The Raiders will tank again and sit the QB they draft for the first 10 games of the year. 10. The Houston Texans will hire Josh McDaniels or Mike McCarthy in 2020 11. Pittsburgh Steelers clean house next year, Mike Tomlin is replaced by Jim Harabough and they replace Big Ben with Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 draft 12. Levon Bell to the Chiefs Not much need to be said about this. They still have a QB on a rookie contract and a out on Sammy Watkins and Eric Berry after next year when it comes time to reup on Mahomes.
