    Top 5 draft Pick in 2019

    Lol I'm just busting your balls. I was a big Bob Sanders fan. With his style of play he just couldn't stay on the field.

    Unsung Hero!

    If you were to tell me that Hunt would be leading the league in TFL at this point of the season two months ago, I might have accused you of smoking rock. I thought making the team would be the highlight of the season for Hunt and now he's playing at a Pro Bowl level. Crazy stuff right there. Woods has been very solid as well.

    Top 5 draft Pick in 2019

    Right, because Bob Sanders was always healthy.
  4. I'm not calling it a lock that he goes top ten. He sure looked like a top ten pick in that game though.
  5. I rolled the tape and can see why you like him so much. He's a player for sure. Reminds me a lot of Fletcher Cox. Top ten pick potential indeed.

    He can be.

    Colts Need an Elusive Running Back Soon

    Randy "Duke" Johnson appears to be a little disgruntled with his workload in Cleveland. I wonder what the price tag on him is? I've always been a big fan of his skill set and I think in the right situation he can be a star player. I believe he is signed through 2021 and at a far price. If I had to guess, Cleveland's asking price will probably be a little high for Ballard's liking but I hope he's entertaining the idea.

    Who in the hell wants to go 8-8?

    Who in the hell wants to go 8-8?

    Exactly how does football work?
  10. I've noticed Jones has started to creep up on a couple of the scouts rankings list I follow. I haven't watched him enough to make an solid assessment but he's on my film list of guys to watch.
  11. Interesting take. Are you basing this on his zero sacks this year? I don't know many guys that can get to the QB when they're atleast double teamed if not triple teamed every single play. I can see a QB needy team moving up to draft a QB. But at this point, I can't see Oliver getting out of the top three. His film is there and he is going to have insane test numbers. We might see one of the best three cone times for a D-Linemen ever.

    How much?

    Who in the hell wants to go 8-8?

    Thank you and I appreciate all of the responses. I get the fact that nobody ever really wants to root for their team to lose. As I stated, everyone can see that the Colts are competitive. Probably good enough to make the playoffs but that would be their ceiling THIS YEAR. It would be a shame to miss out on what is shaping out to be one of the most elite D-Line classes in years just because we finish 7-9 or 8-8 in a rebuilding year. I had them pegged for 6-10 this season. From what I've seen thus far, they have exceeded my expectations with just how competitive they are now. But like I said, they're still a couple of pieces away from contending for the AFC title. With that being said again, I hope they stay in the Ed Oliver/Nick Bosa sweepstakes because they're not going to the SB this year.

    As a fan, rooting for a team to finish a mediocre 7-9 or 8-8 is just plain silly to me. The Colts could be 4-1 right now if a handful of things had went their way but they didn't. As banged up as they are, the Colts are still a competitive team right now. Could they rally and sneak into the playoffs? Perhaps, but are they going to make a SB run? I highly doubt it. I think they are clearly a couple of pieces away from really being a contender in the AFC. I know some people are totally against tanking for a higher draft selection but I am not. Is a top draft pick a lock to be a hit? Of course not but adding a Nick Bosa or an Ed Oliver to this team could be huge. Maybe one guy alone won't turn this team into the AFC favorite but I think it will go along way to achieving that. Throw in the two second round picks (both being fairly early) and the core for this team could be set for years to come. It's pretty clear Chris Ballard isn't likely to spend big in free agency and I'm ok with that. If he thinks they're one piece away and the right fit is there to spend up on, I could see him going after that player. I really like the Colts young core and want to see them to continue to build through the draft as planned. Picking in the 16-22 range in the upcoming draft would not be ideal for next years run at the AFC title.
  15. I can't see him slipping. Aaron Donald was that size and he flew up the draft boards once all of the workouts and testing were done.
