  1. 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line. 8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10. 10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size. 14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line. 19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.

    Former Colts in AAF

    All AAF players are on three-year, $250,000 non-guaranteed contracts, and their first year’s salary starts at $70,000. For the 2018 season, practice squad players can make no less than $7,600 per week, which equates to $129,200 for the season. There is no limit to how much a team can pay a player on the practice squad and practice squad contracts count against the salary cap.

    Former Colts in AAF

    Here are all the players that I could find on AAF teams that once wore the horseshoe. Provided a link to a video/article for each player when they were a Colt. There might be more that I missed, but this is what I gathered: Arizona Hotshots Jeff Locke P - Preseason 2017 Atlanta Legends Sentavious Jones WR - Preseason 2018 Bug Howard WR - Preseason 2017 Birmingham Lion Trent Richardson RB - 2013-2014 Quan Bray WR/RS - 2015-2017 Kitt O'Brien OG - Preseason/Practice Squad 2016-2017 Memphis Express Montori Hughes DL - 2013-2015 Charles James II CB - Played 1 Game in 2016 Anthony Johnson DL - Played 4 games in 2017 Andrew Jackson LB - 2014 Orlando Apollos Earl Okine OLB/DE - 2015 D'Joun Smith CB - 2015-2016 Salt Lake Stallions Branden Oliver RB - Preseason 2018 Dres Anderson WR - Practice Squad/Preseason 2017-2018 Henre' Toliver DB - Preseason 2018 San Antonio Commanders Mekale McKay WR - Preseason 2016 Joey Mbu DL - 2017 Arthur Miley DE/OLB - Practice Squad/Reserve Contract 2017-2018 San Diego Fleet None

  6. If you are the Colts drafting him, do you have a greater concern for the ACL tear or his past off the field issue?

    Marcus Johnson

    He's an ERFA so he will most likely be brought back. Only costs $645K. He'll be in camp and will compete in the preseason.

  9. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001017289/article/afc-south-rookie-grades-colts-revival-fueled-by-fine-draft-class Grade: A Round 1: (No. 6 overall) Quenton Nelson, OG, 16 games/16 starts. Round 2: (36) Darius Leonard, LB, 15 games/15 starts; (37) Braden Smith, OT, 15 games/13 starts; (52) Kemoko Turay, DE, 14 games/3 starts; (64) Tyquan Lewis, DE, 8 games/6 starts. Round 4: (104) Nyheim Hines, RB, 16 games/4 starts. Round 5: (159) Daurice Fountain, WR, 1 game/0 starts; (169) Jordan Wilkins, RB, 16 games/3 starts. Round 6: (185) Deon Cain, WR, 0 games/0 starts. Round 7: (221) Matthew Adams, LB, 16 games/5 starts; (235) Zaire Franklin, LB, 16 games/2 starts. What a class. GM Chris Ballard eschewed sexier picks in the early rounds, instead selecting the best lineman in the draft in Nelson, who immediately paid dividends while earning All-Pro honors. Smith is a competent tackle who could improve into a very good player with proper coaching. Leonard was a revelation at linebacker, taking home Defensive Rookie of the Year while also earning All-Pro honors. Turay's future is bright on the edge after he recorded four sacks in 14 games. Hines was a nice change-of-pace back who found success in the passing game. Cain could develop into a good receiver if he can return to full strength after tearing his ACL in August. Lewis needs more reps to develop, but recorded two sacks in eight games. Wilkins was a nice find in the fifth round. Adams played in all 16 games, recording 33 tackles as a depth defender. Franklin was another depth defender with a less productive rookie campaign. In all, an excellent draft for Ballard, who landed two All-Pros, solidified what was a porous line and helped turn around the Colts. Combine/free agency focus: Depending on Cain's health, the Colts could again look to receiver in this draft for a contributor opposite T.Y. Hilton. Otherwise, they'd be well served to at least explore the position, even after signing Dontrelle Inman for their run to the playoffs in 2018. Middle linebacker and another edge rusher would also be welcome. Cornerback might be perceived as a need. Pierre Desir had a good year in Matt Eberflus' system, but he's headed toward free agency. A decision looms there.
  10. Jimmy Orr or Roger Carr. Lenny Moore was a fantastic pass catcher but is technically a RB. Moore has the 5th most receiving yards and receiving TDs in Colts history with 6,039 yards and 48 TDs.

    Do our backs have this in them

    From what I read, a team can distribute any number of rings. I also saw on https://www.bankrate.com/financing/wealth/whats-a-super-bowl-ring-worth/ that basically, the NFL gives funding for up to 150 rings. Any more rings ordered would have to be covered financially without the NFL: "The NFL gives teams an allowance of $5,000 per ring for up to 150 rings. Teams can spend more on the rings and usually do — they’ve been getting larger and more sparkly over the years. The team can also order more than 150, but the jeweler usually picks up the extra costs. Irsay sent him a ring after the Super Bowl, so it was probably out of his own pocket or it was one of the 150 that the NFL covers.

  13. Still too early for a realistic mock, but classes are canceled today so this gives me something to do. I will be using Spotrac for available free agents and for rookie salaries. I will use Overthecap for re-signings. I will run a few simulations through First Pick to see where players are typically available. I will include the Vinatieri & Glowinski contracts. Cap Space: $117,249,480 Colts Free Agents Unrestricted FAs Pierre Desir CB - 2 Years/$10 M Clayton Geathers SS - 1 Years/$4 M Najee Goode OLB Mark Glowinski - 3 Years/$18 M ($4.2 M Signing Bonus) Adam Vinatieri - 1 Year/$3.875 M Ryan Grant WR Geneo Grissom DE Ryan Hewitt TE - 1 Year/$1 M Margus Hunt DE - 2 Years/$8 M ($1.5 M Signing Bonus) Dontrelle Inman WR - 1 Year/$4.5 M (Fully Guaranteed) Mike Mitchell FS - 1 Year/2 M ($500K Signing Bonus, Fully Guaranteed) Matt Slauson G - I think he will end up retiring. Maybe we bring him back as a coach. J'Marcus Webb OT J. J. Wilcox SS Al Woods DT - I don't think we will bring back both him and Hunt, and I think Hunt has more quality football left in him. Restricted FAs 67 Evan Boehm C - 1 Year/$2.035 M (Original Round Tender) 41 Matthias Farley SS - 1 Year/$2.035 M (Original Round Tender) 28 Christopher Milton CB - 1 Year/$2.035 (Original Round Tender) 36 Corey Moore FS 80 Chester Rogers WR - 1 Year/2.035 M (Original Round Tender) 43 Ross Travis TE Exclusive-Rights FAs 16 Marcus Johnson WR - 1 Year/$645K 46 Luke Rhodes LS - 1 Year/$645K Money spent on Re-Signings: $35,033,591 Remaining Cap Space After Re-Signings: $82,215,889 Free Agents WR Adam Humphries - 4 Years/$42 M ($20 M Guaranteed) Tyrell Williams is someone I have wanted for awhile, especially with the Siranni/Reich connection. However, I think Humphries would have a larger impact on our offense. Humphries gets a good deal of YAC: 10th most YAC among WRs with 423 yards. Outside of Hilton, the Colts are in the bottom of the league in YAC. He'll be 26 when the season starts, so we can sign him during the prime of his career. In addition, Tyrell Williams reportedly wants the opportunity to be a #1 WR, and I don't think he would become the main target on the Colts. DE Trey Flowers - 5 Years/$77 M ($40 M Guaranteed) Grady Jarrett is the player I want the most for the D-Line, but I don't see him making his way out of Atlanta. He's their top priority to re-sign and will franchise tag him if they have too, much like DeMarcus Lawrence, another player I don't see going anywhere. I believe Flowers has the best chance to hit free agency. He will be a nice, young pass rusher to help improve our edge. OT Cameron Fleming - 1 Year/$3 M Adds depth to the offensive line. Smith had struggles in KC. Even though it was one game, I would like to have another tackle for depth with Haeg being the only other one that can fill in there. OLB Damien Wilson - 3 Years/$15 M I'm not sure what type of salary he will fetch in free agency, but for what I know about him I think it is a fair offer. Eberflus was his Linebackers coach in Dallas and adds an upgrade to the SAM in our defense. He'll be 26 when the season begins and I think he will help solidify our linebacking corp. Money spent this year for Free Agents: $33,900,000 Cap Space Remaining After Free Agency: $48,315,889 NFL Draft Round 1: DT Christian Wilkins Clemson Would work great as a 3 Tech for the Colts D-Line. Would be a great addition for a D-Line that has veterans going into a contract year and nearing or already in their 30s. A very talented player that might not be there at 26, but we should highly consider him if he's on the board when we pick. Round 2: WR Kelvin Harmon NC State He's a tall WR at 6'3" with very good hands that can make plays downfield. He's not an elusive player and won't rack up YAC yards, but will be a big target for Luck. Inman is also 6'3", but is coming on to 30 years old, as is Hilton. With no certainty to how Deon Cain will produce or when we will see something from Fountain, Harmon would be a good addition for the future of the WR corp. Round 2: DE Austin Bryant Clemson Another piece to add to the EDGE. Pass Rush was something that needed improving, and Bryant will add more QB pressure for the Colts. 8 Sacks in his senior season at Clemson. Round 3: S Amani Hooker Iowa Can fill the Geathers role when Geathers is injured or no longer on the team. I'm still a fan of Geathers, but adding another young S is a good idea. Hooker will work well whenever we use our 3-Safety sets. Round 4: LB Vosean Joseph Florida From what I have seen, it seems to do well in zone coverage and makes plays in the backfield. Our LB corp is thin outside of Leonard and Walker. Even if we sign an OLB in free agency like Damien Wilson in my mock, Joseph would be a valuable depth/rotational player. Round 5: CB David Long Michigan Appears to play well in zone and man coverage with good awareness. I don't think we need to spend an early pick on CB, but grabbing one like Long on Day 3 is a good idea. Round 6: RB Alex Barnes Kansas State Good size at 6'1" 227 lb. Can be utilized in a short-yardage role as a bruiser-type back. Round 7: OT Derwin Gray Maryland Adds more depth to the offensive line. Projected NFL Draft Pick Salaries: $7,408,879 Cap Space Roll-over for Next Season: $40,907,010

    Latest WalterFootball Mock

    My dad went to Slippery Rock. It is definitely a small school. There are only two players that have come from SRU: Greg Paterra RB who played in 10 games in the NFL and Brandon Fusco G who has been in the NFL since 2011 and is currently with the Falcons.
  15. $11 M per year is a pretty good estimate. Spotrac has his market value at $11.1 M. I think it depends on how he would work as a 4-3 DE. Shaq Barrett is the same age and would be around $ 7.5 M per year and is 6'1" 250 lb. Smith has had more sacks over the last 4 seasons (24.5 to Barrett's 14) but only had one more sack than Barrett this year (4 to Barrett's 3). Barrett also did not start any games this year and played 13 games while Smith started all 16 games. It really depends on how Ballard's see each of them as a 4-3 DE. Barrett is probably better suited as a 4-3 OLB, but is very close to Sheard's size so might be able to play DE.
