With the 24 pick?

  1. 1. WR or OLB/?



Recommended Posts

I think we go pass rusher for the simple fact that there's way more quality WRs then quality OLB and I think a good one will fall down to us that we can not pass on. Plus I still think we'll trade to get a second round.

All things being equal, I'm taking a pass rusher over a guard 100 out of 100 times.

 

 

 

I understand that thinking but I want Luck to be the best protected QB in the NFL. I know another guard won't do that yet, but at least it's another building block. I'm one of the few that think we'll be fine rushing the passer. Pagano will come up with more ways to do it than just our rush LBer.

I want a guard badly, just not in the first

 NO PR looks worthy of the 24 pick.

 Allen, if you like his knee, or Hopkins look worthy at WR.

 I could see Griggs & Co thinking hard about a favorite D-Lineman. 3-4 difference makers are available.
Yes we have #`s of them, but a lack of Quality and Reddings time is running out.

YES! we need our own JJ Watt!

Pass rusher and stout against the run, but not at the OLB position. Datone Jones is my pick. Add some extra pass rush ability from the DLine along with Redding and not just from the OLB positions

Defense. Go defense this year the way we went Offense last year. Get as talented a defense as we can and we will be superbowl contenders this year. Xavier Rhodes. if not Rhodes then Jamie Collins will do. Collins would actually be perfect.

someone who thinks like me. we went almost all offense last year, this year we need to get younger guys on defense. it isnt like mathis is in his 20's or anything. and i dont know about angerer being around after his contract is up. def would love to get rhodes, trufant or that kid from TAMU

-In Grigson We Trust I vote for best player available which should be a DE/DT like Sylvester Williams or Kawan Short. This is the deepest position in the draft.

think we should trade down into the early second round and get sam montgomery 3-4 DE out of LSU or Alex Okafor....but Margus Hunt from SMU would be a nice pick in the first round. he is projected to go to new england with the 26th overall pick.

*In the commissioners voice*

With the 24th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Kenny Vaccaro. Safety: University of Texas

:D

P.S: This is a joke haha

i wouldnt mind that. but watching game videos on margus hunt, i think he would be good for our DLine. he seems to have the hunger like JJ Watt.

I'm with you thinkin our pass rush will be just fine also want a good guard but not sure warmack or copper are there so I say WR and then get a good guard next but everyone should want luck to be protected unless they are crazy

Since the choice is WR/OLB.. I'd pick WR. But OG/C is really the first choice.

Top interior lineman typically go in the latter half of the first round, I'm hoping that holds true this year (DeCastro was mocked to go top 12 in almost all mocks last year but went #24 -- I can't believe the Bears passed on him). Keep Luck healthy and give him more time. Moving the chains more on offense will indirectly help the defense. Luck took a beating last year and it'll eventually take a toll (quite a remarkable season considering the pounding).

I have no doubt that a FA WR will be brought in before the draft. DHB or Loyd probably. They have clearly stated their intent. We will then be able to draft BPA.

 

dhb has lions writing all over him and lloyd is overrated. I rather have someone younger to groom and to build chemistry with luck

    • They are still in first round interview mode. I'd expect that to continue assuming they want to interview guys still in the playoffs. Keep in mind the Texans had to get special approval to interview Bieniemy when they did, because they failed to interview him on the off week. They can't interview him again till they are done (unless they seek a waiver from the NFL again).   Purely my opinion, but I think it's simple to me.   If Watson stays, Bieniemy will be the HC. Anyone other than Bieniemy is a signal that Watson is gone. That assumes though that there are teams willing to mortgage their future...   
    • TO's stats absolutely warranted first ballot... but he had antics on the field (e.g., the Dallas Star incident, spitting in DeAngelo Hall's face) and was also a cry-baby who was often in conflict with the media and front offices of teams he played on, and thought by many to be a subpar teammate (at least for portions of his career).  He also did other things (e.g., the Desparate Housewives skit before MNF, OD on pain meds) which made him unpopular with the media, who are ultimately who vote players into the HOF.   Marvin also deserved to be a 1st ballot HOFer.  Although he got in before TO, I firmly believe Marv's alleged shooting incidents and the allegations of him punching a younger fan at a pro-bowl game were held against him in voting.  I know it's said that the HOF is for what players did on the field, and off field stuff shouldn't come into play -- but it's voted on by people (i.e., sports writers) and there surely is some sort of human element that goes into the vote casting process.     You're right... Reggie will get in, just a matter of when.  While I do think some of Marv's off-field issues hindered him, there were also guys like Andre Reed (who had been eligible for almost a decade) and Tim Brown who were waiting to get into the HOF... both deserving HOFers who got overlooked previous years as guys like Jerry Rice and Cris Carter got in.   While I think the main knock on Reggie will be that he was WR#2 to Marvin for a decent part of his career, and the fact he wasn't all-decade team and only a 1x First-team All Pro (and 2x 2nd team).  That said, he's one of the most prolific WRs in NFL history and has some of the best post-season stats of any WR in NFL history.  Megatron definitely was a physical freak who changed the game, but his career was not long enough to put him in the record books like Reggie (who is top 10 in just about every category and top 5 in several post-season categories).  The only other WR on the ballot is Torry Holt who is a 2x finalist -- Reggie has more all-pro appearances, 1 less probowl than Holt, though Reggie has more yards, TDs and receptions.  They both have 1 SB ring, with Reggie having greater post-season success with individual stats, and Holt was 2nd team 2000s all-decade which Reggie wasn't.  Holt was also 2nd fiddle to Isaac Bruce for a decent part of his career.   Not making any guarantees, but compared to the WR classes when Marv and TO were finalists (including guys like Reed and Tim Brown who had been on the wait-list for a while) as well as studs across the board (e.g., Jerome Bettis, Derrick Brooks, Michael Strahan, Aeneas Williams, Junior Seau, WIll Shields, Favre, Orlando Pace, etc..).... I think this class is pretty weak.  After Peyton and Woodson, as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I don't see any guy in this class who clearly deserves to be a HOFer more than Reggie does.      He has to retired first and if he keeps taking his Benjamin Button diet, that may not happen.
    • Personally I think the future QB is already on the roster in Eason. To be honest we don't have a clue on his abilities in the NFL. He has all the physical tools. In this offense he wouldn't have to be superman to be successful.  I am pretty sure Ballard will pull some surprises out of his little black book. He seems to do that every season so far. 
    • Or your bling "Love" of him has altered yours... 
    • Thanks for that. I know there is more, not a lot more but there have been blurbs through the season and comments/talk on sirius nfl 88 as well. There was one recently on roto but for the life of me I couldn't find it. I'm not sure if it was removed by roto or not. Don't know why they would but... anyway thanks again
