  1. Indianapolis trades #26, Jacoby Brissett, and a fourth round pick to Washington in exchange for #15 Round 1:15) Ed Oliver, IDL Let me start by saying that I really believe this trade to be realistic, but I’m not so sure about the target. Oliver is a top five pick in any of the past three drafts, but I’ve had this opinion for a while that he may slide in this draft for no reason whatsoever. There are a LOT of really good “fit” picks in the top ten, and there are a bunch of teams in the top 15 who I feel are rather unpredictable. Atlanta is the last road block between us and Oliver, and there is a VERY good chance they take him. If not, and Oliver falls to 15, Ballard needs to be picking up every phone in the building to try and trade up. Round 2:34) Jeffery Simmons, IDL Ed Oliver and Simmons in the same draft class should scare the AFC South for the next five years. Ballard wants to only have to rush four on any given play, and locking down the middle with two top-five talents already wins us the 2019 draft. Round 2:59) Kelvin Harmon, WR Harmon looked like a first round pick there for a while, but his combine hurt his stock. People get so caught up in flashy numbers sometimes it can cloud the truth: all Harmon does is catch footballs. Harmon is a ‘Ballard guy” at 59. High motor, good character, and good football player. Sure he’s not the fastest, but in Reich’s quick release system, I feel like Harmon will murder the middle of the field on slant routes. Round 3:89) Amani Hooker I have to be honest here, I have not watched a ton of tap on Hooker, but nonetheless this is the pick here. Ballard has said how much they like the Safeties in this class, and in my mind that extends into the later rounds. I see him mocked to us a TON with this pick, and I’m trusting my peers here. I know a safety in round three isn't going to come in and change the defense day one, but if a player is willing to develop (which it sounds like Hooker can), then I say go for it. Round 4:129) Traded to WASH Round 4:135) Bryce Love. RB I remember when Bryce Love was going to be the next great RB, but injuries have PLAGUED him. Reich wants a top-5 rushing attack, and Ballard wants high character guys on the team. Win win. Love doesn’t have to be the guy, and get to benefit from a RB by committee approach. This pick would be a steal in my opinion, and a ton of the experts think this is value. Rounds 5-7: BPA plain and simple. Thoughts and opinions welcome, especially when it comes to Oliver’s landing spot, because I know a ton of people may have him off the board earlier than this.
  2. I laughed incredibly hard at this. Although, I don't think the Colts drafting team mates is too far fetched. In the mock draft I'm working on in my head, I see both Abram and Simmons landing in a Colts uniform. As for your other bold predictions, I wouldn't mind any of those other scenarios, especially the JD sponsorship.
  3. So, being a Colts fan aside, that’s some pretty impressive hand work. I even saw a little dip and bend around the edge on that break. If you go back on his feed, you can even see him put the ole spin move on some equipment. He’s putting in the work to be THE guy on the edge. He looks lean, in shape, and putting in what it takes. There’s a REAL chance we can see double digit sacks from this guy in 2019. I’m so excited for our second year players
  4. I'm of the opinion that if Ed Oliver falls past 15, we trade up and not look back.
  5. I'm 100% right here with you Superman. People on this forum only have a short term memory. We're talking about a fourth round pick who couldn't even start for the Browns....THE BROWNS. He was then signed and cut by two other teams. He was an absolute liability in coverage in 2017, and was a liability at some points last year. He's not "under rated" at all, he's just rated. No one wants to admit that he just played well down the stretch last year, and played when it counts (for one year). I was hoping he'd walk, SIMPLY because I knew he had a market, and I'm really high on the CB's in this coming draft.
  6. You’re right. Five hours into the legal tampering period and we don’t have ANYTHING to show for it. Nobody can actually even sign a contract yet, but this season is already over. We’re doomed. Done I tell yah. All those difference makers who haven’t even had more than 7.5 sacks in a season that are now making 17 million a year. We really missed out
  7. Call me crazy, but last year I was rather ticked at some of the free agents that we couldn't grab. This year, I absolutely cringe at some of these numbers these guys are getting, and am beyond glad we aren't signing average players to 17 million a year contracts.
  8. You know it's crazy when even Rapaport is saying how insane that deal is. Next on the list please
  9. There was a rumor I saw that the Raiders were looking at forming a team with LB, AB, and Kyler Murray. The next month is going to be insane.
  10. My only question here is. Who let this slip to Rapoport and why? Ian and Adam are the two most well connected guys in the league. They don't just make stuff up and La Canfora it. If Rapoport tweeted that out, it's because he was hearing from multiple of his trusted sources that that's what was going to happen. It sounds to me like someone in the Steelers organization is playing games with Brown here. Everyone knows Brown watches social media, so why not leak that you're trading him to the dumpster fire of the NFL. Almost in a, "Look how much worse things can get." kind of way
  11. Paris Campbell is a sleeper at 34. He's the quintessential "Ballard guy." Hard worker, great locker room presence, and by all accounts a pure leader. Sure he didn't put up the best numbers at Ohio State, but I feel like he could absolutely FEAST here.
  12. Even after seeing how this season played out, if that offer was actually on the table, I'm not sure I could have turned it down. Especially with two potential generational talents in the top five like Barkley and Nelson. Also, could you imagine how much your asking price jumps up to for one of those picks? You hold a monopoly in the top five, any team wanting a QB is going to have to pay at that point. I love Andrew to death, but man oh man, that's a hard business decision to have to make. Back to OP though. For Carr and two first rounders? Not a chance
  13. That SUCKS about Murphy. I've been really high on him as of late, and with his play style think he could really feast in the Colts system of defense. I'd love for him to be there at 26, but I figured he was going to test and interview really well. He just strikes me as that type of player
