If you remember, Ballard always has a number of the blue chip prospects in each draft. If there are only 12 and we are 13, then he might be willing to move up if it’s a position of need. Some of those blue chips should be QB, DT, and OT, and that would be enticing.
For this particular year, it's probably only worth going if you have kids, as most of them aren't stat and analytic geeks and will enjoy the game regardless. I can't imagine being at a Colts home game last season. I won't even watch on TV this year if Brissett is the starting QB again.
Yeah, gotta go with what is sure to be the majority here. We don't even have a franchise QB AND have enough positions to upgrade I don't think we should be losing picks early unless it's for a QB. If Brown and Kinlaw are gone there are still DTs that can help and we can still get a top OT, pass rusher or blue chip WR at 13. The 13th pick ought to be a difference maker pick whether we go for DT or not. Most of us seem to want a DT due to wanting to have dominance in the trenches. But we also know a replacement for Castanso and our WR2 (future wr1) is also very important. So why take picks away?
