Updated Colts Draft (With Major Trade)


Recommended Posts

-Before the 2012 draft, Peyton's deal is restructured in a way that makes him much more tradeable. Peyton said he would do this since it is in best interest of the franchise so I could see it happening.

-Indy then trades Peyton Manning to Washington for their 1st and 2nd round picks.

1st overall pick- QB Andrew Luck

1st round- 6th overall (via trade)- CB Morris Claiborne (We finally have a shutdown type of corner that will make this secondary respectable.)

2nd round- SS Mark Barron (Our secondary continues to improve!)

2nd round (via trade) - NT Brandon Thompson or NT Dontari Poe (We need a NT badly)

3rd round - OLB Sean Spence (Very instinctive backer we need to play alongside Angerer and Conner/Wheeler/Sims)

4th round- WR Kendall Wright

Rest of draft spent on OL, TE

We retool our defense with the selections made from the Manning trade by adding 4 new potential starters.

Everybody even people on Epsn keep saying manning could go to Washington. Crazy thing is. In both my franchise modes on madden I release manning a couple years later and ge goes to Washington every time. Madden gods prophecy.

So we trade trade a QB that we know is the best. and bank our success on a player that will hopefully be great? oh and then throw him behind one of the worst oline's in football? Well i see no reason why we wouldn't go to the SB in that scenario. (sarcasm). Seems more like the David Carr scenario then the Favre to Rodgers or Montana to Young now doesn't it?

THe Colts can't trade Manning, it's a part of the contract, and even then, Kendell Wright will NOT go in the 4th round. 3rd round at worst. Brandon Thompson will probably go to a team late in the 1st round..

It's not that it is part of the contract, the contract makes it problematic for it to happen.

3 day window from when the league year opens to when the bonus option is due.

Agreeing on some form of compensation

The team either a) having the ability to take on the contract as is( 28 million option bonus) & 35 million + in base salaries. B) renegotiating it to satisfy each side or deferring money.

I also doubt Manning would be open to going to Washington and playing Eli twice in the same season. I still don't see the likelihood of him being traded.

This. For the win.

    • I must be reading different things.....     Oh well.... it will all come out in the end   If we end up with him at our 2nd and we get Paye....  Im a happy camper
    • I would absolutely have loved to join, but with planting season here I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
    • All Colts fans will go into a lottery, and will select their preferred team based on the lottery outcome. I'll send a private, ordered list of posters/GMs to @chad72 and one other poster. @NFLfan, who will not have the list, will use a random number generator (like the link below). He will publish his random list, and Chad will publish his. The list will be mashed up, and result in the GM order (who will then pick their teams).   Example: List provided to Chad   EastStreat Chad 72 Danlhart87 Nickster MPStack ......   NLFfan uses a random generator for range of 1-X (in the case above, 5) and comes up with  4 1 5 3 2   The two will be paired, and the result would be   1. Chad72 2. MPStack 3. Nickster 4. EastStreat 5. Danlhart87   So Chad would choose first (likely the Colts), followed by MPStack and so on...    I know it sounds complicated, but it's extremely easy, and fair.   For fans of an opposing team, they'll get their team assuming they want their team, and there are no other opposing fans that want them too (Joe get Pitt for example, If NFLfan were playing, he'd get MN).
    • Cosmi has always been further back in the tackle ratings by the experts.  Not a 1st rounder in most eyes.  When you look at overall player rankings he winds up in the 2nd. Rd.
