I don't feel comfortable doing O-lineman, as I am pretty terrible at projecting what translates from college to the pros.

 

I have some requests to do more on players that weren't in the original outline (Buck Allen, David Cobb, Trae Waynes, Brandon Shreff, ect...) If you want to drop a request in this thread, I'll get to it before the draft. Any position is fine, I only require that a player has at the minimum 2 tapes on DB (at least one from 2014).

As great as this is for this year, I find another use of it may be enlightening as well.  Maybe we can resurrect this in a year or two and we can discuss the surprises!  The players that bust, those that disappoint, and those who's star shined even brighter than projected.  Knowing their talent going in to the NFL, we can then discuss team environment, scheme, and personality "affecting" the talent either positively or negatively.  I'd like a deep dive area where we can discuss to try to discern why some seemingly  sure fire prospects bust, or are at least severe disappointments.  This body of work is certainly broad and comprehensive enough.

 

Great work Dustin.

fwiw, the only players I have a first round grade (projected isn't the same thing) on so far are:

 

Gurley, DGB, Davis, Phillips, Jarrett, Kendricks, Beasley, Diggy, Gregory, Johnson, Peters, Waynes, and Collins.

Thanks, Dustin.  Astute list as usual.  Here is my list of possibles for the first three rounds. Guesstimates derived from NFL.com, CBS (NflDraftScout), draftcountdown, draftace, walterfootball, draftboardguru, nflroughdraft, Mike Mayock, draft simulators) In the draft simulations (First-pick and On the Clock), my biggest takeaway was how many times a top RB fell to us in Round 3; also the second tier RBs, such as Yeldon, David Johnson, Cobb, etc. might be just what we need (in other words, no RB in rounds 1-2).  The notes (met) means the Colts interviewed and/or worked out a prospect.

 

Round 1. 

Alvin “Bud” Dupree (met)

Landon Collins (met- pro-day)

Arik Armstead

Eddie Goldman (met)

Andrus Peat

T.J. Clemmings (met)

Jalen Collins

Eric Kendricks (met)

Shaq Thompson (met)

Owamagbe Odighizuwa

 

Round 2

Danielle Hunter

Damarious Randall (met-pro day)

Quinten Rollins

P.J. Williams

Benardrick McKinney

Carl Davis

Michael Bennett

Stephone Anthony (met)

Paul Dawson

Alex Carter

Denzel Perryman

Eric Rowe (met)

D’Joun Smith

Preston Smith (met)

Nate Orchard

 

Round 3

Ameer Abdullah

Duke Johnson (met)

Jay Ajayi

Tevin Coleman

Lorenzo Mauldin

Jaquiski Tartt

Derron Smith (met)

Mario Edwards, Jr

Cedric Ogbuehi

Josh Shaw

    • The person who lost it is you.   You posted,  IN THIS THREAD,  that we were bottom-5.   Turns out,  we're not.   We're bottom 10.   And, as I noted,  only you would complain about throwing 33 times a game.      Once again,  you demonstrate how little you know about football.    You try to twist facts to make your point.   Your incorrect point.   Funny how you again use the J'Ville game when you think it helps you make a point.   Because the previous day you told me NOT to use because it was "irrelevant".   Your word,  not mine.   So, it's irrelevent when I make a point with it,  but it's perfectly fine when you try to use it.   How classicly YOU!   Don't look now,  but I'm running circles around your argument.   Now,  not only aren't stats your friend,  but words aren't your friend either.  This just keeps getting worse for you.   The more you post about this,  the worse it gets for you.   But, by all means, keep doubling down on a losing hand.  You have a lot of experience doing that.    Carry on!  
    • How Rivers did week 1 is irrelevant?    Are you certifiable?    You've been complaining about it ever since.    Throwing 46 times wasn't the game plan.   But you didn't seem to notice that against that terrible run defense we couldn't manage to gain 90 yards.   And we threw for nearly 400.    So you demonstrate your lack of understanding of football.   The game plan wasn't working,  so we went with what WAS WORKING.    The passing game.   And we backed off the running game.     And by the way,  one of the reasons why the running game wasn't working was the lack of the pre-season.     But, that's just you being you!    LOL!!  
    • Really?  That's the best you got?   A childish insult that sounds like it came from a 12 year old?   That's the best you got?   In my more than 8 years here, I've never met someone more afraid of writing words than you.   They're like your kryptonite.   And stop trying to be the school-yard bully telling me what to do and not to do.   That's not going to work either.   Your such a coward running as far away from any fight you think you can't win.   Not changing anything?    That's what you do to any topic that you can't win.   Happens all the time.   Which is why I write about it all the time.    This is not new territory.   So, the next time you want to insult me,  do yourself a favor,  use one of your Life Lines!   Try the Phone-a-Friend feature and ask someone else for a better insult than "wise old lady".    If that's the best you got,  well,  It's just pitiful.   Good Luck.
