  1. 1. Will The Colts Trade Their Draft Picks During The 2014 NFL Draft?



Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   :)  Our Indianapolis Colts only have five selections, including one compensartory selection for tonight's 2014 NFL Draft, but do not, unfortunately, have a first-round selection this year.  Colts have the fewest draft selections this year with only five selections, while both the New York Jets and St. Louis Rams each tie the most draft picks entering tonight with 12 selections.

 

What would have been the Colt's 26th overall pick in the First Round of the 2014 NFL Draft tonight, was instead traded to the Cleveland Browns for the Trent Richardson trade after the start of the 2013 NFL regular season last September.

 

Colts other off-season moves involving their draft picks included trading their fourth-round selection, number 127th overall, also to the Cleveland Browns for the Browns 2013 fifth-round selection. Colts used that selection to draft defensive tackle Montori Hughes from Tennessee-Martin.

 

Colts later acquired an additional seventh-round selection, number 232nd overall, in the trade that sent center Allan Quay Shipley to the Baltimore Ravens.

 

Colts however traded their original seventh-round selection, number 241st overall, to the St. Louis Rams, for cornerback Josh Gordy.  Colts won't be able to draft players until Friday Night, beginning in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

 

We wish Jim Irsay, Ryan Grigson, and Chuck Pagano, and the Colts coaching and scouting staffs for a successful draft in the next three nights both from the Colts War Room, and at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

 

GO COLTS!!!!!    :coltslogo:  :colts:  :nfl:  :1colts:  :blueshoe:  :helmet:  :nfl:  :coltslogo:    :D

I dont know if we will trade because we announced marvin will announce our 2nd round pick which means we can get  an extra one or stay

Can't wait! Please let Jimmie Ward fall out of the first round.

The only way I think the Colts will trade draft picks would be a trade similar to the Montori Hughes deal last year. I could see Grigson trading a 4th next year for a 5th this year, seeing as how the Colts have the opportunity to net a couple of compensatory picks next year. Other than that, I doubt we see much wheeling and dealing from the horseshoe this year. With Grigson though, it really is anybody's guess.

Doesn't mean anything.

I really hope we don't trade.  Trading up would mean giving up picks; we don't have many picks this year and I don't like giving up future picks.  Trading down could mean losing out on some really good talent.  I think we should stay where we are.

 

Big shout out to LucasOilStadium for making the thread!

I think you basically hope the 2nd/3rd picks workout because odds are 5/6/7 are longshots to ever contribute.

This will be an important udfa draft for us because we don't have many picks.

Don't mortgage next years picks, start clean again with all our picks and make moves if need be next year and use those to move around the draft. Go the udfa route and bite the bullet (lack of picks).

I'd only agree with trading picks if we had a 1st rnd pick and could trade it for a extra 2nds and 3rds. I don't see how trading a 2nd rnd pick for multiple late round picks will help the team.

The poll question talked about trading picks....   it didn't say 2nd round or 3rd round....   it just said picks....   which to me means could Grigson make a trade at all....    on any of our picks.

 

And the answer I would think is an overwhelming yes.

 

And yet 9 people said "no".....

 

Okie-Dokie.....

I fully believe he will try trade down from pick 90 to try to pick up Jax's 2 4th round picks if possible or one of there 4th round picks and 5th round pick

Clowney's attitude kinda annoys me.  I certainly wish the best for him, but I could see his attitude turning teams off or even making him a bust.  He seems to be more concerned about having fun and having a good time

Browns trading all over the place. Justin Gilbert is a great pick. I don't know why people are booing. They have Brian Hoyer, they can get a quarterback later and wide receiver is deep this year.

    • NB;   I came into the series thinking Toronto is the better team but the results haven't show that until Tuesday. Brooke Lopez and Niko Mirotic ..George Hill? We love Hill in Indy but he's never done what he's doing for the Bucks.   Marc Gasol is a great player..I dont know why he was so shy and hesitant in the first two games. Player for player..Toronto should be winning
    • And here is the actual NFL draft profile that was alluded to,  but NOT linked.    I'm linking it.   And, Kelly had a solid draftable grade and was called a possible low-level starter.    So, clearly he might also be considered a decent back-up, which is all anyone is talking about here.   Kelly's profile.   Not a first rounder,  but not a camp body either.   Possible Brissett replacement in 2020 if he leaves.   http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/chad-kelly?id=2557869
    • The second part is correct(perceived pass threat usually makes opponents send less people in the box and create more advantageous run situations), the first part about having elite RB - I'm not sure about. I mean... sure... if you can just snap your fingers and have an elite RB for the same money and without spending premier assets ... sure... have at it. I'm not sure having elite RB is worth investing big asset(1st... maybe even 2nd round pick? or huge contract). Generally the factors by importance for your run game go something like this:   1. Quality of your OLine run blocking  2. Quality of your pass game   3. Quality of your running back   It's not "not important", but it's probably not worth the capital you need to invest in order to achieve it. 
    • I didn't form my opinion off of someone else's draft profile at NFL.com. I based it off of what I saw on film. And Peyton Manning laid a few eggs in college IIRC.
    • Sucks, but probably for the best honestly. He responded to the trolls and that only keeps them coming back. I wouldn't even have a twitter if I was a professional athlete honestly. Then again I don't have one even as a regular guy. I get actors/actresses having them to promote their brand and because fan popularity is so important there, but for athletes it only seems to be a distraction or downfall.
