Colts meetings with draft prospects (merge)

Recommended Posts

Two confirmed so far. Try to add the rest here if/when you come across them. Just as a reference, not discussion about particular players. Thanks.
 

@PatDStat: Jeremiah Poutasi OL Utah, has talked with the #Lions, #Texans and #Colts. Has a meeting set up with the #Chiefs on Wednesday.

The draft creates some opportunities to acquire talent at center. Reese Dismukes of Auburn and Hroniss Grasu of Oregon are two of the best. (Dismukes said he's already had a meeting with the Colts.)

 
One of the top rated centers in the draft, has a 2/3 grade in some places. I like him. He's strong, mobile, seems aware, can get to the second level, can turn interior linemen to create running lanes. Doesn't mean we will or should draft him.

I wish there we some Defensive players on the list although I don't really think the list means a whole lot.

I like Poutasi, I believe he's a LG who can play LT in a pinch in the NFL

I try to be interested in the players at the combine but keeping track is kind of hard to do. I don't get my hopes up for any player or players because it makes no difference. Grigson will have is board made up no matter what my thoughts are on it. I know it's off season and we need things to keep our Colt fix going but I will wait till after the draft to see who the Colts have picked. I am not much on making my mind up on draft picks till year 2 or 3. Getting bent out of shape over draft picks does me no good.

I understand what you're saying, but there's a world of difference between getting bent out of shape over the Combine, and enjoying it for what it is. To me, it's not just filler, I actually like the pre-draft process. It's kind of weird, but I like the minutiae of the offseason, even if I wish it would all go by more quickly. So it's kind of exciting to know who the team is meeting with, whose pro days they're going to, etc. You're right, it probably doesn't matter, but I like it nonetheless.

I know we met with T.J. Clemmings at the senior bowl. Did we meet with Mewhort, Moncrief, or Newsome last year?

That's cool. I just don't seem to find the time to take close looks at most of the players coming out. I do study and pay attention to the picks after the draft for sure. I guess what I am doing is preparing myself for the negative that comes from those who have a problem with whom ever Grigson takes. From some comments he knows zero about making picks and getting players for the Colts, even though history tells a different story. That is what is so aggravating sometimes. You can very well understand that more than most.

I would love Ameer. I believe he can be a 3 down back.

Only thing I don't like about him is the Fumbles, 23 in his collage career. Had 4 last season (same as coleman).

So did it take you 2 or 3 years to make your mind up on Luck :)

I'm with you...I don't have the time nor the care to follow it closely at all. I just wait for the draft and will always be fairly content whomever the colts select...I'm sure they know well better than I do that is for sure. Just frustrating only when you know we need certain player positions filled and then they take players we are already deep at you know ?

It would have done no good who I had my mind made up about. Grigson and Irsay are the ones who make those choices. The only comment I can say is I am glad Luck decided to finish he collage before coming out to the draft. He would have been the #1 pick for the Panthers. That would have been a tough choice at the time with Luck and Newton both coming out at the same time.

Not even close. No more than rg3 was.

Ameer Abdullah is a solid runner but has major issues with fumbles. As a Nebraska fan enjoyed watching and the guy can make you miss and with juke moves. I would rather see the Colts target Michigan States RB instead. Overshadowed by other Big 10 players but still garnered more yards after initial contact and 100 yard games but has troubles running into his own players. Not sold on Indiana's RB...

Darren Waller is on the list!

I would love for us to draft him and try him as a tight end. Maybe he cam become a Jimmy Graham II.

Why aren't there more DLs on that list!?!? They need to use at least 2, maybe 3 picks on the defensive line!

They don't feel that way. Pagano mentioned Hughes, Kerr, Quarles, and Pendleton as talented players that could progress this season.

It would be a mistake to pass on a DL player if he were higher rated than say a S, CB, WR, ILB when it was the Colts pick. There are talented players on the DL this year so we shouldn't have the mentality to think we don't need to add to the DL.

Well....   there certainly won't be 3 draft picks used....   and I don't know why you think there would be?   The Colts have lots of other needs as well.

 

2 is possible,  but certainly not better than a 50-50 shot...

 

1 draft pick seems a lock.

 

But at the owners conference, Grigson expressed confidence in what we already have on the roster, including Kerr and Quarles and Hughes as guys who he expects to see much more from...

There are a lot of positions needed before a TE is drafted IMO. The Colts already have one of the best TE combinations in the NFL. Fleener, Allen and Doyle are good enough not to pick a TE in the draft.

    • Salary cap. They're up against it this year, and they have a lot of free agents next year. 
    • The more I think about this, the more I feel the Colts may try to trade back.  Ballard said himself there are only about 8 players they would consider in the 1st, and my bet is most or all will be gone by 26.  This is an overall weak class compared to last year except the DL.     Hopefully get an extra 2nd out of the deal!
    • I've been preparing to hear some unexpected names with our first 3 picks, if we stay there, but I still think I'll be surprised at some of them. Some potential surprises IMO could be McLaurin or Banogu (who I admittedly don't like much) in the early/late 2nd. Or Jacobs at #26, which I'd also not be very high on. And those are just ones that would kind of surprise me. I fully expect an out of left field pick at either 26, 34, or 59.
    • I understand where you are coming from, but late First Round WRs rarely pan out either. Here's a list 20 of the top WRs in the NFL and where they were drafted, based on The Draft Networks list, https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/the-top-20-wide-receivers-in-the-nfl:   Deandre Hopkins - Round 1, Pick 27 Julio Jones - Round 1, Pick 6 Michael Thomas - Round 2, Pick 47 Antonio Brown - Round 6, Pick 195 Adam Thielen - Undrafted Odell Beckham Jr - Round 1, Pick 12 Tyreek Hill - Round 5, Pick 165 Mike Evans - Round 1, Pick 7 Juju Smith-Schuster - Round 2, Pick 62 Davante Adams - Round 2, Pick 53 Keenan Allen - Round 3, Pick 76 Stefon Diggs - Round 5, Pick 146 AJ Green - Round 1, Pick 4 TY Hilton - Round 3, Pick 92 Brandin Cooks - Round 1, Pick 20 Robert Woods - Round 2, Pick 41 Amari Cooper - Round 1, Pick 4 Kenny Golladay - Round 3, Pick 96 Tyler Lockett - Round 3, Pick 69 Emanuel Sanders - Round 3, Pick 82   Totals: Top 16 of Round 1: 5 Bottom 16 of Round 1: 2 Round 2: 4 Round 3: 5 Round 4: 0 Round 5: 2 Round 6: 1 Round 7: 0 Undrafted: 1   As can be seen, most value in the draft at WR can be gotten in the either the top of the first or the second and third rounds. Only two WRs taken in the back half of round one have become top 20 caliber players.    Let's also look at the past 5 drafts, receivers taken in the bottom half of round 1:   Brandin Cooks (2014) Kelvin Benjamin (2014) Nelson Agholor (2015) Breshad Perriman (2015) Philip Dorsett (2015) Will Fuller (2016) Josh Doctson (2016) Laquon Treadwell (2016) DJ Moore (2018) Calvin Ridley (2018)   While the jury is still out on Moore and Ridley, only Cooks has really performed at a high level out of them all. 5 of the remaining 7 have been very disappointing thus far (Benjamin, Perriman, Dorsett, Doctson, Treadwell), and the remaining two are both unreliable at times, and decent at best. Based on this evidence, I personally would least like 26 to be WR. In fact, I would only put QB, P, K, and OL below it at that slot. Late first round receivers rarely pan out, and I want this draft to be another big success to push us up the ladder into SB talks.
