  1. It depends on what you need a tightend to do. While they play the same position they do it two very different ways which is why they are such a good 1 2 punch for the Colts. It’s a lot like when Dilger and Pollard were here. Both were stars in their own ways.
  2. Maybe one day but I doubt he beats Walker out for the starting job this season. I could see him starting at the other linebacker spot.
  3. Any of the undrafted free agents the Colts just signed.
  4. I like Hart he sounded like he might be a steal late in the draft.
  5. I forgot they have Ward too and he played really well last year until he got hurt.
  6. I forgot about Ward but he played really well last year until he got hurt.
  7. Four DTs is a lot. A lot of 4/3 defenses only keep four DTs.
  8. I am guessing some combo of Hunt, Autry, and Lewis will start at the DTs slots. They also have Stewart who will probably won’t start can add depth.
  9. I also think the Colts are fairly deep at DT. I think the idea of the Colts taking one came from it was the deepest position in the first round and a lot of people figured a really good one would be there in round one.
  10. Not really. They needed help at the end spot and they took a couple of guys there. They didn’t take a DT but honestly they are pretty deep there.
  11. I don’t believe in draft grades until the guys play but on paper this draft looks promising. They addressed every major area of need. They added two corners, a safety. A couple of pass rushers, a “van noy” type guy who can line up all over the field and be disruptive. They got a speedy WR who should thrive in the Colts get the Ball out fast and let your player makers make plays offense. Then they got a couple of depth olinemen late. They also added another linebacker who should fit the defense well. Now we see if whats on paper translates to the field. If it does Ballard hit another homerun and set the Colts up with an extra second next year in what should be a loaded draft.
  12. Depth guy. Colts needed another option at center so I like that.
  13. Makes sense he probably was in danger of not making the team. If you can get something for him so it.
  14. Project depth pick that’s what you are getting late in round seven.
  15. People who understand getting there is an accomplishment in its own right and hard to do.
  16. So rather than grade the draft on what they did do you are going to grade them on what they didn’t do? To each their own. personally I think grading drafts before guys even get to their first mini camp is stupid but that’s just me.
  17. Scouting looks like we got a steal in the sixth round.
  18. Sounds like a little bit of a project if they are moving him to corner but I like it.
  19. That’s your opinion. Kieper had him as the second best player still available today. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter where anyone had him but Ballard. Sounds like he was high on their board and he slipped to the point he was worth going to get. Also, I didn’t say he couldn’t be a starter. I just said he’s probably not a day one starter as are most people from here on out. They probably need some development which is fine. I am also saying the Colts don’t need a day one starter at safety because of Geathers, Hooker, and Farley.
  20. To me it’s clear Sweat was DQed on the Colts board for some reason. What that exact reason was we will probably never know. Time will tell if Ballard was right or wrong to DQ him.
  21. At this point you aren’t getting Day one starters but you are getting guys who can become starters and that’s what the Colts need at safety with Geathers on a one year deal.
  22. What a difference a day and some players makes in terms of how people are feeling!
  23. I really like what they did tonight on paper. Now to see if it translates to the field.
