  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.

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.

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".....

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.

    • 10.55 equates to roughly 4.4 Using 200 is way to flawed as it's long speed. 100 is a little better, but also has the long speed factor.  x/2.54 + 2x ~ 100m time
    • Yep, their DC Wink Martindale had to go blitz happy against Mahomes and it hurt them. They probably realized that if they need to just rush four and bring pressure, they had to improve their interior pressure and hence this move.    It also increases Lamar Jackson's room for error against playoff teams like the Chiefs and Titans mainly. Plus, 2 divisional games vs Steelers are still on deck, the move thus makes a lot of sense. The price they paid was pretty stiff for someone in a contract year but they believe they are on the cusp of a SB appearance.
    • If you have faith in our offensive coaching staff and Frank Reich, you make a trade for Sam Darnold. Something like offering a 3rd for him.   Similar deal to what Tennessee did for Tannehill.  Darnold has plenty of talent, could just need a change in scenery, with a competent coaching staff and offensive players around him. 
    • Venturi is a riot. Hilarious guy. Knows his stuff but he thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, his back has to be crooked from him patting it so much. Also, he does way too many about faces and acts as if there are no receipts of some things he's said.
    • Why is it just about every time irsay releases a statement we're told on this forum that he's  the Best and greatest owner of all time?? I'm not knocking him or anything,  I know it must be difficult for him fighting his demons for most his life and all so god bless him going forward.  But really the greatest sports owner of all time?  Lol
