  1. That's an amazing mock. The longer I watch him, the more I like Devonta Smith, he may be the best WR on Bama's team and that's saying quite a bit. Dude would be a great addition, and he catches everything, like a Mike Thomas type player. If Ballard and Co think Love is the guy in the 1st then so be it, I'm on board, but if he tanks it's gonna be hard to recover. We would lose years waiting and then potentially have to invest another 1st somewhere down the line. A DT like Brown, Wilson, Coe is a must in the first couple/three rounds, they need that badly and there's so
  2. Way more than a team should logically spend. Yes. He set the SEC Single Season Passing TD record, and has like 4400 yards.
  3. I hope to god they dont spend anything to get broke down Cam Newton, that's a horrible move imo. I'm sure he's better than Brissett, but a lot of dudes are. I say either draft a guy or look for a better QB in FA. I really like Jalen Hurts with the way the league is moving towards mobile quarterbacks that can still throw, and he will be available with probably either of our 2nds, leaving us our 1st to improve another position. Something like 1-DT/OL 2a-Hurts 2b-WR 3-BPA of need
  4. Well yeah, you take Lamar Jackson, Mahomes, Russ Wilson off their teams and put a backup level guy in their place, and most teams end up falling flat on their faces. I honestly think with how many guys have gone down, how young the team has been due to almost an entire rebuild on the defensive side of the ball, Luck retiring, it's a lot to overcome. The fact that we are in as good a position as we are is honestly a testament to Ballard/Reich, it blows my mind a lot of people are turning on them now. I guess that's what happens at this point in the game though, especially with a fa
  5. Agreed. With the way the season is going tho we should have 3 picks inside the first 45 or so, maybe better if they keep losing. It will be interesting to see the order they use the picks, although I'm sure it'll be BPA.
  6. Nah man, they were supposed to be prepared for their franchise QB to retire in his prime. They were supposed to draft 4 All-Pros, not JUST 2. C'mon, they're obviously trash. (Sarcasm)
  7. Brissett is great at making throws when the DB runs 20 yards in the opposite direction of the wideout, gotta look at the brightside.
  8. Here, let me sum up the next 2 hours of comments: Every player sucks, every rookie was overrated, Jacoby Brissett is trash, Ballard can't draft, annnnd Frank can't coach. Save you guys some time.
  9. So...you're saying he quit on his team?
  10. Great. We're just gonna keep winning enough games that don't matter to keep us around .500, just mediocre enough to not be in range for an elite QB in the draft, but also not good enough to contend for anything. STUCK. IN. MEDIOCRITY. JUST LOSE THE DAMN GAMES ALREADY!
  11. Maybe. Just because there's a lot of talent at WR in this draft doesn't mean they will be there in the 4th/5th round. I'm sure there's gonna be several runs on WR on Day 1/2, once teams see a couple of these guys start falling off the board, teams will make their move. 6 will be gone on the 1st day probably...Juedy, Lamb, Shenault, Ruggs, Reagor, and Higgins. I don't wanna wait and get a Tier 3 guy late, we need playmakers at WR bad, I'd only put the need for a QB ahead of it honestly. DT/OL is close but with the 4 picks on Day 1/2, we should be able to get most of that squared away. Plus, the
  12. Simply put, guys lose their jobs like that. GM's, HC's, Coordinators, etc. The NFL is very much a win now league. Waiting years, as a luxury, just isn't an option. Fields at 34? Justin Fields? He's gonna go 1st or 2nd in 2021, without hesitation. Barring some catastrophic injury, he and Trevor Lawrence will go 1 and 2 in 2021. I know, Ballard knows, everyone knows, that JB isn't the longterm answer in Indy. At that point one of a few things needs to happen: A) We draft a guy with whatever pick we end up with in the 1st, likely 15-20 range, B) We spend draft capital to
  13. Just keep winning 8 games and picking in the middle of the round? That strategy is bunk, and will leave us outside looking in on guys like Burrow/Tua and Lawrence/Fields. One thing is for sure, I trust Ballard's ability to scout, and his judgment, so if they do in fact take a developmental guy, or they trade up to take someone, I trust that they did their homework.
  14. Problem with those is they aren't realistic, Kinlaw will be gone in the Top 20, and Pittman is a Day 2 guy. I like the 1st one a lot tho, if we could get Viska, Terry, and Pinkney to go with Love on offense, and still land Gallimore, that would be a hell of a draft. Well done, man.
  15. Yeah, most mocks I've seen have Herbert going around 8-10, so if that holds we would have to trade up but Love or Eason should fall to us. It's gonna be interesting to see it play out, see if Ballard gets spooked and trades up, or has the nuts to wait and see if they fall...or even ballsier to wait and see if someone falls to the Redskins 2nd. Hell, he may not go QB in the 1st, if they don't I'm really hoping they get a guy like Lamb, Higgins, or Shenault, a big bodied X receiver to compliment the speed of TY and Campbell.
  16. Belichick actually had little to do with Tom getting drafted. Outside of Burrow and Tua if he makes a full recovery, I just see a bunch of project guys. I wouldn't mind landing Herbert, Love, or Eason if they can do it without selling the farm, preferably in the 2and round.
  17. The smart teams will be the ones that pass this year, suck next year, then land Fields and Lawrence in 21.
  18. It's generally the opposite with guys coming in, they can't put the touch on the throws and just rifle everything in. Jacoby Brissett was, and still is in large part, like that. When I look at Love, I see a great balance of touch, zip, and accuracy. Plus, he had 7 rushing TDs last year, the kid reminds me of Dak Prescott, being that he has a nose for the endzone when they're close, except Love throws passes that Dak only dreams about.
  19. Yeah, I mentioned those guys as small school guys, not really direct comps. They had like 2 returning starters this year, it's a miracle he's done what he has honestly, not to mention the turnover on the coaching staff. The sophomore year film is a much more clear indicator of what you're getting with Jordan Love, and had he been eligible and declared after last year, I'm assuming he would have went top-half of the 1st, probably to either the Giants or Skins. The guy's main comp is Mahomes, so idk why you day that he doesn't have the arm strength or zip on his throws.
  20. Watch his sophomore year film, the skillset of that team is much closer to what he will be working with on an NFL roster. With these small school guys, you have to project a LOT being that the talent discrepancy from Utah State to the Colts would be night and day. Much like scouts did with Josh Allen, Carson Wentz, Flacco, Roethlisberger, etc.
  21. Couldn't agree more. I think we will see -in some order- a QB, WR, and TE taken in the Day 1/2 picks, with a likely DT thrown in. I'd love to see them get Love at QB, Lamb at WR, Gallimore at DT, and Brycen Hopkins at TE or Cole Kmet if he declares from Notre Dame.
  22. Wow, that's bad. That's the worst mock I've seen and I look at them weekly. If the Colts pass on QB, WR, and DT at all of those picks with the guys that are left on the board in that mock, the city and fanbase might start a revolution. Seriously lol. Taking a LBer from Wisconsin in the 2nd with Jordan Love, Jacob Eason, Neville Gallimore, etc still on the board is GM-suicide. I love when "experts" post mocks when they clearly have no clue of team needs or managerial preferences.
  23. I think Herbert is close to his ceiling, he looked the same this year as he did last year, in fact like you noted he looks more timid. I was huge on Herbert coming into this season, but it seems like he's not assertive enough or something? Like he lacks that killer instinct, and I'm not sure an introverted guy like that will ever be a "killer" in the NFL. He has the tools, on some of his throws I get Rodgers vibes like "How tf did he make that throw?" but he seems less inclined to pull the trigger this year, which is strange seeing that his line is excellent, he has great weapons even after Br
  24. I agree. I don't like Herbert or Eason at all, I think they have Bortles written all over them, total busts. It's either Tua falls far enough for Ballard to make a move, or he gets Love imo. I actually wouldn't mind having Jalen Hurts, I feel like he could be a Cam Newton or Lamar Jackson lite in the NFL. I think his floor is a Dak Prescott type player, he's having a really impressive season at Oklahoma, and he has improved every year. I think with the right coaching, and a team to build around him, he could be good/great. I'd say realistically (guys we could actually
