I would switch Blackmon and Kalil and then it'd be pretty spot on. As much as the Rams could use a big play WR, they need to protect Sam Bradford more. That's why they traded for Brandon Lloyd as the short term solution while they fixed the O-Line in the draft.

And it's starting to look like Barkley may stay in school another year, but as of now that's a good projection for him.

Hmm...well here's my thoughts:

Arizona imo would be much more likely to take an OT than Burfict. I wouldn't be surprised if Burfict goes first round but it'll be closer to the end of the first round, not the beginning.

Quinton Coples doesn't even go in the first round?

Detroit plays a 4-3 not a 3-4 so if they drafted Upshaw it would be to play DE, not OLB. Upshaw would actually be more of the perfect fit for New England than Kuechly and Kuechly would be a much better fit for Detroit so I'd swap those 2.

Is Coples having that bad of year, i see a lot of mocks having him fall.?

It's just like the Adrian Clayborn situation. More teams are keying on him (Coples), and the Tar Heels are a little less talented/competitive in general. His stats were bound to come down, but it doesn't mean he has any less potential. Some believe he has character concerns, however.

P.S. There's no way the Rams let Kalil pass. Saffold, who many here believe we should have taken over Hughes, has been a BUST at LT, and Bradford's been slaughtered as a result. Now that Saffold is trying things out on the other side of the line, they need a franchise LT.

See, only teams who don't have a good left tackle draft another one. Teams that have a good one (recently drafted), don't move him just to take another LT, and then move a natural tackle inside to guard thinking it will all work out. :rolleyes:

So, even though you DO have some teams picking an OG...and you have US taking one at 33...you dont have the BEST OG in the entire draft, David DeCastro, going in any of those picks? c'mon man! lol if by some miracle he is still available when we pick at 33, we would be getting a steal! He honestly has Logan Mankins type of talent/potential. Getting someone like DeCastro in the second round would be huge for us, if we take Luck #1...because we will be getting first round talent at a position of NEED at the top of round 2 after getting Luck as a bonus...

Assuming Peyton comes back n has 4 good years to finish out his contract, the ONLY way that i would rather take Luck than trade the picks, is if we could pull something off like that, where we get top talent with our 2nd round pick.

    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team. 
    • She can talk some smack on analytics. Smarter than most of the hot take reporters / personalities out there. And she's super hot.  Highly doubt it happens, but we have a lot of things that could realistically fall our way.
