  1. 3rd times the charm........ but yeah the rivalry is still on. Colts trade pick 26 and next year 5th Its been said many times that a difference maker at position of need may not fall to 26. We move back a couple of spots and pick up two more 3rd round picks. For New England pick 32, 97 and 101 Patriots have plenty of picks to play with this year. Also with a stranglehold over their division they can afford to take risk to keep Tom Brady Superbowl window open a little longer. As far as draft chart this trade is roughly 40 to 60 points in our favor. I came into the draft thinking about getting starters early. Keep in mind with Doyle back how many 3 wide receiver sets are we going to run. Same goes for our defense with Houston and Sheard... I do not see a defensive end coming in and starting over these guys. Quick 5 round Mock Draft 1. Jeffrey Simmons DT Mississippi State Getting arguable a top 15 talent at the bottom of the draft was to good to pass up. The 5th year option gives me a piece of mind about waiting on his injury. Simmons has experience in both 3-4 and 4-3. His ability to eat up double teams, collapse the pocket and stuff the run open up opportunities for his teammates (Sweat). Ceiling Comp: Fletcher Cox 2. Mack Wilson LB Alabama Looking at our defense the easiest position to upgrade is the LB spot. Walker is a good LB and there is nothing wrong with him coming off the bench like AJ Klein did for the Panthers. Mack provide coverage skills of a safety. On field speed (not 40 time) is above average. Fills the right gaps on running plays and the ability to play QB spy. Coming from a long line of Alabama LBs some have been super stars, while others have been average he has history on his side because recently few have been bust. Ceiling Comp: Telvin Smith 2. Riley Ridley WR Georgia Ridley is in a similar situation as Micheal Thomas (Saints) when entering the draft. Both are strong WR, run great routes, strong hands but was in a system in college that was run dominate. Ridley has two more things that stands out, his brother is already in the league and he has experience going against the top CBs in college football. Ceiling Comp Michael Crabtree 3.Jachai Polite DE Flordia This is a far drop for a player once considered to be a 1st rounder. Polite did terrible at combine and probably have been taken off draft boards due to poor numbers and interviews. Before you roll your eyes last year Orlando Brown dropped from 1st round tackle to 3rd rounder because of a terrible combine so thats the logic behind this pick. Polite posses a deadly spin move and the ability to dip under bigger offensive lineman. He comes in to play a role similar to Jonathan Newsome where he can pin his ears back and just focus on rushing the QB. Ceiling Comp: Noah Spence 3. Zach Allen Boston College Allen lack of athleticism and lack of position have a few looking at him like Bjorn Werner. Allen is a technician at the DE position his hand placement, balance and power punches makes up for lack of bend. He can really make his money with his timing. Allen had 7 passes tipped/batted down (Deandre Baker and Greedy Williams had 9) Ceiling Comp: Derek Wolfe 3. Micheal Jordan OG/C/OT Ohio State Jordan has played every position on the interior of the line. He comes in and can be back up center to Ryan Kelly who only complete season was his rookie year. At 6'6 and his ability to get to the 2nd level makes me want to give him some reps at tackle during practice and preseason. A player who can contribute anywhere on the line could be invaluable when trying to figure out the final 53 man roster. Ceiling Comp: Gordy Glenn 4. Rodney Anderson RB Oklahoma Anderson if healthy would be in the running for RB 1 in this class. His long history of injuries makes him a very high risk player whom more than likely won't get to his second contract. Anderson has vision, balance and burst. He is a natural hand catcher and will be dangerous in the screen and short passing game. Behind our offensive line he has a chance to gain 400 to 600 all purpose yards. Ceiling Comp: Theo Riddick to Matt Forte (if healthy) 4. Jazz Ferguson WR North Western Hmmmm 2 WR in the draft you say. This draft has 2 players on the Pup list Simmons and Anderson which buys us at least 6 weeks to evaluate and give all our WR some burn. On top of that in a contact sport like the NFL there's bound to be a injury its just the nature of the sport. Lastly if you look at our potential free agents next year we could lose a lot of height and big time redzone targets (Ebron, Funchess and Doyle) to ridiculous contracts. Ferguson even though he's a developmental player could step up to fill this role. Ferguson had a scholarship for LSU so the talent has been there. He dominated the lower competition and had several "Moss em" catches. He comes in with appreciation for the 2nd chance and probably a chip on his shoulders. Height, speed and the ability to get the jump ball makes Ferguson a weapon for Luck. Ceiling Comp Vincent Jackson 5. Jamal Peters CB/ S Mississippi State Peters is a enforcer in the secondary. He plays better in zone than man but can run with TEs. He played both safety and CB at Mississippi State. Ceiling Comp: Cam Chancellor Should/Would we trade with New England? What you do if we pull this trade?
  2. Late round Jazz Ferguson WR North Western??? I think his combine # is kinda close to Mike Evans...
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Thanks 4 taking a look at it and participating
  13. 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.
  14. Wr free agency Just like most graduates coming out of college these recievers are lacking experience. Often times the job goes to the person whom has already worked in a similar or same role. This Free Agency look at the WRs is just that. It doesn't necessarily mean we shouldn't draft a WR early but acknowledges that these guys have already proven to be some type of commodity at the NFL level. The Classic no. 2 WR These guys can play on the outside or inside. They exhibit the ability to take over for a stretch of time and take pressure off of the no. 1 WR. Adam Thielien , Robert Woods and JuJu Smith Schuster has proven a that the classic no. 2 can take the offense to new heights. Devin Funchess 6'4 235lbs 24 years old Funchess has a great frame to box out and run the fade. He has strong hands, a wide catching radius and good body control when the ball is in the air. This pass year he proved he couldn't continue his success as the no. 1 wr in Carolina. https://youtu.be/Kx_LVnsNb_w Best Trait: Box out ability/getting open on broken plays Worst Trait: Not a no. 1 WR John Brown 5'11 180lbs 28 years old Brown has the speed to take the top off the defense while also displaying the heart to run the intermediate routes. He could take some of the strain off of TY going vertical during the season. https://youtu.be/ExPfRWb0Dzk Best trait: Speed/Yards after catch Worst Trait: Height Devante Parker 6'3 210lbs 25 years old Jay Cutler said "Parker is the faster version of Alshon Jefferies". That statement somes up his career, he has so much potential. Can Reich unlock Parker upside similar to Ebron. I almost put him in the rebound group but the least amount of games he played in a season is 11 games. https://youtu.be/_mam-41AfMM Best Trait: Potential Worst Trait: Potential/Health Robby Anderson 6'3 190lbs 25 years old Robby was a undrafted free agent out of Temple. He has fought his way into the starting lineup for the Jets. Providing excellent speed and ball tracking. Even though he is widely known for his vertical threat he has a good route tree. https://youtu.be/VaXOhYkFTCo Best Trait: Ball tracking Worst Trait: Off field issues and Restricted Free Agent The Chain Movers These guys mostly play in the slot. Providing a safety net and picking up those 3/4 yard 3rd down plays that keeps the drive going. Jarvis Landry, Julian Eldeman and more has proven the value of the slot WR. Justin Hardy 5'10 190lbs 27 years old A sure handed possession reciever. Hardy is a decent blocker for his size. He also returns kick and punts. He hasn't found away to catch 25 balls in a season. https://youtu.be/Klw8mJNw6iI Best Trait: Multiple usage Worst trait: Speed and Lack of Volume Slot WR only Cole Beasley 5'8 175lbs 29 years old Beasley has proven to be a hustle player. He outworks LB and Safetys out of the slot. Volume reciever who averaging close to 60 catches a year through the pass 3 seasons. https://youtu.be/vO1SJceN_Lc Best Trait: Volume catcher, chain mover Worst Trait: Age, size Jordan Matthews 6'3 215lbs 26 years old Jordan has two 8 tds season. Throughout his career he has avg at least 11 yards per catch. His usage has dropped tremendously but has experience in the offense that Reich runs. https://youtu.be/QQWrfDoYyyU Best Trait: Age Worst Trait: His arrow has been pointing down sense his sophomore season The Rebound guy These guys are seen as a bust because of where they were drafted. They have shown enough ability to stick on a team but has failed to even secure a spot as the no. 3 WR. Guys like Cris Cater, Keenan McCardell and Eric Moulds had their best careers away from the team drafted them. Justin Hunter 6'4 200lbs 27 years old Justin is a long speedy reciever. He's been labeled a bust for where he was drafted (2nd round). Justin has shown glimpse but really has only been a wr 3 at most so far. https://youtu.be/Yw73c3a1UvA Best Trait: Athletic ability Worst Trait: Isn't a great route runner, not a volume catcher Brashaud Perriman 6'2 210lbs 25 years old Perriman is a speedster. His height, speed and jump ball ability gives him elite qualities. His health on the othet hand has been underwhelming. https://youtu.be/At2QsJdoxGE https://youtu.be/SmSCFkEWZhk Best Trait: Speed Worst Trait: Health, inconsistent hands Kevin White 6'3 215lbs 26 years old Kevin White has been missing in action since he was drafted. https://youtu.be/Z67qi6Hmms8 Best Trait: Potential Worst Trait: Injuries Laqoun Treadwell 6'2 215lbs 23 years old Laqoun is a good route runner and a natural cather. He is a willing blocker and can work from the outside or inside. Unfortunately he is slow and doesn't create much seperation. https://youtu.be/Xpts0wtvqTk Best Trait: Blocking ability, Natural catcher, Age Worst Trait: Lack of actual playtime even though he was healthy Likes, Dislikes, contract estimates, Do any of these guys fit our scheme, needs and team personality, and whats the likelihood we sign any of these guys (do your best Chris Ballard impression)?
  15. Anthony Barr LB Shane Ray DE David Irving DT Two out of the three won't break the bank Barr will be the most expensive. And if the safety market is low we could grab HaHa on a 1 or 2 year deal. These 4 guys would make a hell of a impact
  16. Preston Williams 6'4 WR from Colorado State. I wrote a little bit about him would like to get a different set of eyes on this cat. I think he is a solid 4th rounder
  17. Not a ohio state fan.... sorry you assumed that and came into this negatively....
  18. Need a Snickers, your not yourself when your hungry Thanks for participating First
  19. I left it blank so that you guys could fill in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 7th pick. I know everyone love doing fanspeak. So I guess this is a tougher version like a RPG lol
  20. The Colts War Room: Mock Draft I wanted to do a different simulation. Most of us love the draft season. Some of us do Mocks. 100 percent of us are wrong when do these drafts but its fun. One thing I wanted to do is point out its a team effort when drafting. There are scouts, offensive and defensive coaches, GM etc. So I wanted to try to simulate that. Below is a Mock draft a few picks are already penciled in by a few of the staff members I mentioned above. Your task is to draft around those choices to complete our draft. 1. *Trade* Raiders select Dwayne Haskins QB Arizona recieves the no. 4 pick and the Bears 1st round pick, 3rd round pick and both raiders 5th round picks Raiders recieves no. 1 pick, cardinals 4th round pick and Hassan Reddick 2. 49ers: Nick Bosa 3. Jets: Jonah Williams 4. * Arizona: Clelin Ferrell 5. Tampa Bay: Josh Allen 6. New York Giants: Quinnen Williams 7. Glitter Kitties: Ed Oliver 8. Lions: Rashan Gary 9. Buffalo: Greg Little 10. Denver: Greedy Williams 11. Bengals: Devin White 12. Green Bay: Monteaz Sweat 13. Miami: Drew Lock 14. Atlanta: Deandre Baker 15. *Trade* Raiders: D.K Metcalf Washington recieves David Carr and the Cowboys 1st round pick, and Karl Joesph Raiders recieves the 14th pick, this year and next year 2nd round pick, Ruben Foster and Josh Norman The Gruden brothers help each other out 16. Panthers: Brian Burns 17. Browns: N'Keal Harry 18. Vikings: Jeffery Simmions 19. Titans: Jachai Polite 20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Bryan Murphy 21. Eagles: Dexter Lawrence 22. Colts: ??? 2nd round Jets Charles Omenihu DE Texas 6'6ft 275lbs (Coach Eberflus pounded the table for a long defensive lineman) https://youtu.be/7T7JPvQ1r2I A behemoth of a man who can play inside and out on the defensive line. Margus Hunt may have played himself outside of a contract that Ballard is willing to pay. Charles does a excellent job setting the edge and stopping the run. This past year his sack total jumped from 4 to 9.5 sacks. In a division with Fournette, Hyde, Lewis and Henry his ability to stop the running game will be much welcome. This guy athletic ability should be on display during combine causing him to shoot up draft boards. 2nd Colts 3rd Colts 4th Colts 4th Colts compensation pick: Preston Williams WR 6'4 200lbs (Coach Sirianni said this kid reminded him of Tyrell Williams) https://youtu.be/7zI3xT3l5Q4 This guy could have the ability of a Martavis Bryant. He is a long WR with history in track (ran for the Colorado). He is dynamic when he has the ball in his hands and at times make the circus catch that we will see on espn. He needs to work on routes (I believe Reich can scheme him open) and he does body catch (doesn't necessarily drop the ball so a catch is a catch) I see him coming in pushing Fountain for that last wr spot. A acl injury, transfering from Tennessee as well as some trouble with the Law is why he drops here. 5th Jake Bentley QB 6'2 220lbs (Coach Reich would like a QB to groom and possibly flip and this gives Chris freedom to flip JB either in the draft or if there is a training camp injury) https://youtu.be/8VP0hnbRBNw Bentley has the arm, surprisingly mobile and the balls to try to squeeze it into tight windows. The latter part (decision making) and his throwing mechanics drop him. He thinks he's Brett Favre and doesn't trust his line often rolling out or making bone headed mistakes instead of stepping up in the pocket. 6th Zach Gentry TE 6'8 255lbs (Tom Manning see's potential in this guy and think he can teach him how to block. Doyle isn't getting any younger this could be a stash player on the pratice squad) https://youtu.be/YRttqsW0vTE This guy will be the get off the bus specimen all star. Zach has decent hands and deceptive speed. Right now his go to is verticles but he provides a huge redzone target (waiting for vertical). If Tom can get this guy to block he would be like a extra lineman with his height and NFL weight. 7th So who will you choose with your 5 remaining picks? I threw in the Raiders trades to spice this up, and personally pick players that I felt was a fit or to good to pass up for my mock draft. Willing to explain/ discuss why I pick who for what team.
  21. I present to you 3 different topics, questions or statements intended to generate good convo... 1st down: TY Hilton is our no.1 WR...... why so mad? 2016 lead the NFL in yards 2nd best WR in the Division Top 20 WR in the league 36 career TDs Outside of Alshon Jefferies whom TY is tied with no other WR from his draft has more TDs then him. Is it TY height? Like I stated above he has the same amount as a 6'3 WR. Leadership style? WR seems to be a eccentric position on the field. He has a subtile and in my opinion loveable celebration. He has never had a outburst on the sidelines. TY hasn't held out and only had one me 1st moment when he threw the offensive line under the bus and even so he apologize for it. He comes in gets the job done and for the most part he is a team first guy. So why are we so angry? 2nd down: Collateral damage We are a quarter into the season and some of these coach's seats are getting warm. Most times when a coach or/and GM gets fired there is alot of collateral damage, whether that's a player (old gm drafted, or they don't fit new system) or coaching staff some people are left out to dry. Who would you like to pouch from some of these teams. Cleveland Browns Dallas Cowboys Houston Texans Atlanta Falcons New York Jets Seattle Seahawks 3rd down: Million dollar man This isn't the sexiest FA class but Ballard may have to break the bank open. Here are a few names I would like for us to target. Tyrrell Williams WR 6'4 https://youtu.be/pUVSzM6bM9U Connection is our offensive coordinator whom was San Diego WR coach for 2 years. Eli Rodgers WR 5'10 https://youtu.be/DEq7qbLkUj0 A younger and cheaper Ryan Grant Anthony Barr LB 6'5 https://youtu.be/pM5oxooAu84 The most expensive piece of the free agency David Irving DT 6'7 https://youtu.be/zTtixyya9zM This is a cheap gamble that could work with our defensive coordinator being familiar with him from his time in Dallas. Darqueze Dennard CB 5'11 https://youtu.be/sC4p5Z4R1vo Under valued CB that could be a steal Sam Young RT 6'6 A swing tackle who could pave the way for whomever we draft Dion Jordan DE 6'6 https://youtu.be/Kftteu020t8 I really wanted Frank Clark but he was out of our price range since we got Anthony Barr. Jordan has a load of potential and could strive in our defense as a rotational piece. Punt
