You may be right, but I continue to see the Big Boards that have Turner at late 2nd and 3rd round
I hope that he is there for us
I also agree that a trade back is almost probable unless Paye or Darrisaw are there
Getting a 3rd round pick, in this draft is where we could pick up a decent TE, WR, or CB
Im not so tied in on a single player, as we can get some great options even if we dont trade back
Players that might be available at 21 (or later 1st in trade) and 54
Paye - Mid 1st
Darrisaw - Mid 1st
Jenkins - Late 1st
Turner - Mid 2nd to mid 3rd
Eich - Late 2nd
Radunz - late 1st
Weaver - Mid to late 2nd
Basham - Mid to late 2nd
Cosmi - 2nd
Leatherwood - 2nd
If we get any two of this short list (DE and OT)
I personally am a happy camper
I read his book. It is excellent and very worth it
if you are into the draft and respect polian you must check out his podcast. Sorry but I don’t know how to link it. He is a little elitist in it but really gives great insight to valuing the upcoming class. I’m half way through the ol breakdown and it’s enlightening if not a little worrisome.
Definitely...which means CB, TE and OG are all potential options. The Colts have been connected to CBs, TEs like Tremble and even a G like Meinerz. Add in EDGE, OT, WR, LB, S and maybe even QB (though it would be really low on the list).
Colts have many needs and and not many picks. And while it's very likely the Colts will trade back, I don't think they are going to be able to get many additional top 100 picks to address those "needs."
So overall, I look for Ballard to trade back and target a couple of value picks on the first two days. And the trades they make will be focused on Day 3 capital and capital for next year.
