I agree...so I fixed it again, cause I don't think they'll slap Manning, Freeney, Mathis, Saturday, Clark and Wayne in the face and tell them we're not going to use the best pick in the entire draft to try to help them win another SB. ;)

I think if they start worrying too much about what the current players think, this team is in serious trouble anyway. That kind of stuff can't be thought about from a business standpoint. Even if the Colts were to go in a different direction than Luck, I don't think Jeffery will even be in their top 5 considerations. He is not a Polian guy. He's over 6'1", not a prolific route runner, and don't have elite speed. Essentially he's a tall physical reciever and Polian don't value that.

That all depends on if they really want to re-sign Mathis, Saturday and Wayne. If they have no problem letting these guys walk then that means you're probably right. If they want these guys to come back though then they'd better take into consideration how they'll feel about the use of the #1 pick.

Also, I really don't think they'd draft Jeffery either...not anything to do with Jeffery but because it's simply not the biggest area of need. It was just the easiest way to rework the mock draft without reworking the entire thing and without putting Coples back at the top. I didn't want to put Coples back at the top because I don't think he gets drafted unless they let Mathis walk.

Why do people like Alshon Jeffery so much? I know this is pointless but the guy looks outta shape in all his pics. looks like hes just naturally big.. no muscle or anything from working out

Honestly, I like Michael Floyd better but unless things change drastically, he'll most likely be the #3 WR prospect so that, and not wanting to rework the entire draft from the original post, is the only reason I put Jeffery in my post above. Jeffery is a great WR but from the games I've watched Floyd seems to play faster and harder on a more consistent basis.

Honestly, I think its because he's tall and thats it. People are infatuated with height on a WR.

If these WRs.... whoever they are and however tall they are.... don't run razor-sharp routes, I don't believe we would ever pick them that high.

We got Reggie at what....#30 if I remember right.... and Collie in the 4th round. Heck.... even Marvin didn't go until #19 overall.

Route running and hands are 1 and 1a when picking WRs....IMO.

With this draft order, I would trade the #1 pick to Denver for their #1, 2 and at least a 2 next year. then I would pick up a DT like Thompson or Crick, a cb in the 2nd and an interior OL with our 2nd.

Love the idea but I think we'd get more in return....the 2013 pick would have to be 1st round and I think at least 1 or 2 mid round picks would be included as well.

I'm not a pro-Luck person. I wouldn't mind drafting him but we have more pressing needs then a back up quarterback.

that's why i said "the only question will be, what team drafts him".

if manning is healthy, the colts will definitely trade the pick for the best offer.

I agree with both you and Husker...I don't think we'll draft Luck but I do think he'll be picked #1. If we're at #1 then we'll either draft Luck or trade the pick...I really don't think they'd pick another player at the top spot but I get what you were doing in just going down the board and making the picks without predicting any trades on this mock.

Very well said. Heck, the Patriots and Packers don't do it with all big, tall guys. Sure, they are physical, but route running and hands come first in an elite passing game. Size is just a bonus. People are a little infatuated with Calvin Johnson, methinks. There's a reason why there's only one of him in the league, however...

Agreed. This could end up akin to the old Herschel Walker thing. We could really shore up our "now" and "later" by trading the Luck pick.

I agree with both you and Husker...I don't think we'll draft Luck but I do think he'll be picked #1.

I don't know about any of yall but the reason that I love Alshon Jeffery is because he is an incredibly talented WR. So what if he's tall, he's 6'4" 233 lbs. He the closest thin to Calvin Johnson there is. Somewhere on this website, someone posted a scouting report on Alshon Jeffery and he graded a 9.1 out of 10, where Calvin Johnson graded a 9.6 out of ten. Anything higher than a 9 is an incredible talent, according to that acouting report.

This year's WR class is much better than last year's WR class. There's a reason that Alshon Jeffery and Justin Blackmon were All-Americans over A.J. Green and Julio Jones last year.

Do you know what Michael Floyd's draft grade is/was or have a link to the website that has the draft grades?

Sorry it's somewhere on this website on the NFL draft board, I read it a couple of days ago. Alshon's scouting report was a preseason scouting report, and I don't know about Michael Floyd though.

    • Yep. I still can’t believe how Reich was forcing Taylor last week when it wasn’t there. More so in the first half.
    • Taylor is out. Glad to see this. Maybe Reich won’t force run when it’s not there.    
    • So those "traitsy roots" were playing "out of traitsy character" before to overachieve and do something they weren't capable of before and suddenly went back to their "traitsy" self again? That doesn't make much sense. This is not them having the yips, man.   Pryor is actually improving as the games have gone on, to be honest. That is why we took some baby steps on pass offense vs the Titans. The true question is, if they can put a complete game together instead of just a quarter or two on offense.
    • Someone tweeted the following observation to Kevin Bowen and it's amazing when you think about it.  The Colts 8-10 best players - Nelson, Kelly, Smith, Taylor, Ryan, Hines, Pittman, Moore, Buckner, etc. - are all having the worst years of their careers at the same time.  When the hell does something like that ever happen?   That is 100% coaching.  The 10 best players on any given team do not just magically lose their talent overnight at once.    
    • You're right.  I'll stop saying that.  I also remember saying that before the injury, I wanted Mack to stay and Hines to leave because I thought Mack actually was better in the open field than Hines.  But people shot me down by saying that Mack did not catch very well.   I remember Mack's big runs as finding a crease in the middle, but yes, there were a lot of different runs with Mack.   Was Frank calling those running plays with JB at QB?  LOL.
