Right now this board reminds me of the day we drafted Reggie Wayne. 

 

I am going on record saying I love this pick. The players I wanted were gone.

I really think people are overblowing the amount of holes we had. Not a fan of the pick, but a team with soooooo many holes doesn't make the AFC title game. 

Ya but we have no NT that is any good and no SS that is any good and need a better O-line and he comes away with this.

Has anyone read this guy's scouting report yet?

It's glowing, to say the least.  Speed kills in the NFL.  Period. 

 

I've had the chance to see Dorsett in person several times and paired with Hilton, we will have no trouble whatsoever ripping the top off defenses.  Could not be more thrilled with the pick.

 

There are several picks left.

No one said Dorsett is a bad player.  He's very talented.  But we have plenty of receivers and Andrew Luck is the type of QB who can make average receivers look good.  We don't need to invest heavily on the offense, especially after we got Andre Johnson.  Our defense has plenty of holes and there was a lot of talent available when we picked to fill those holes.

Exactly. He's an exciting player, but we have huge holes elsewhere.

As for people calling for Grigs head, no doubt he had Irsay's ok with the pick. I thought we'd go D in the 1st but I was fooled. T.Y. is dominant at times so why not have a player who can duplicate his skill set.

Look at the bright side. Josh Cribbs will never field a punt for the Colts again.

I can't wait to see Grigson and Pagano rave about him.  He's a horseshoe guy, he just goes to work and chops wood, he's got wheels...they'll pretty much use every meaningless cliche possible.  Kinda like how Grigson said Werner beats people with his "want to"

nobody saying he is a bad player, we just don't need another wr.

 

We did need a WR.

 

And a good GM sticks to his board. We took the BPA available on Grigson's board. 

 

There will be a lot of people eating crow after this day. Dorsett is a baller. He averaged almost 25 yards per catch over the past few years, and he will take the top off of defenses we face this year.

just stunned...if we are trying to win a championship this year, what everyone has been talking about. Then what in the world are we doing drafting this guy, someone we don't need?????? Grigson is a *, can't draft worth a.......

 

we aren't building a monster, we are building a football team around the WR position. Welcome to watching teams run through us again next year. One of the best DT's- pass, Top rated safeties all available- pass. Top rated ILB's all available- pass. Super Bowl- pass

I agree.  We have a lot of holes to fill.  But we also have several picks left. 

 

I disagree (to an extent) that Luck can make average receivers look good.  Nicks was a huge disappointment, even with Luck throwing to him.  Same with DHB.  Many here had high expectations for both of those guys.

 

Guys were flat-out not getting open in the NE game.  Now we have 2 burners + Johnson and Moncrief.

 

Furthermore, Andre Johnson is not going to play forever.  Dorsett will come into his own by the time Johnson is gone. 

 

Adding Dorsett gives the Colts a very talented WR corps for the long term: Moncrief, Dorsett, and Hilton.

 

Dorsett and Hilton remind me of the Harrison/Wayne duo (except with more speed).

even if he turns into the next Marvin Harrison it don't mean it wasn't a stupid pick we literally have WRs falling out of our *

This is literally awful

No more excuses

I agree both grigson and pagano need to deliver on defense or be gone after this season. And how exactly are we gonna play all these weapons? Remember we still have a talented 2 TE set

No more trust Grigson

Put up or shut up. If we get run over again Grigson needs to go. The guy can identify some good players but you can't just ignore defense like he has.

We have the oldest D in the league.  Our guys are less than average against the run... how does this help? I didn't even want them to go O-Line, D, more D and then more D.  Dorsett is awesome, but why pass up all that D talent when some of those positions are thin even at the top? We're a Safety or CB injury away from giving up 35-48 points to any decent O in the league. Our D line is pitiful.  Our linebackers are ancient and can't stop the run.  Argh!

We have much greater needs than WR.  Dorsett may very well end up being a great player, but we need other positions filled.

Everyone must remember we are not in the war room and have not been privy to the info the coaches and brass have on the players

I'm privy to the fact that we couldn't stop New England from scoring on us at will with 13 men on the field the last 3 times we've met.

A WR will do little (nothing, actually) to prevent that streak from stretching.

R-E-L-A-X

Andre Johnson is old. There is a reason Houston was ok letting him go. Moncrief is still raw. Duron Carter...who cares...totally unproven.

Dorset looks like a stud. Grigs obviously felt he was by far BPA. I'm excited about this guy.

    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.
    • 4200 yards passing 35 TDs 15 INTs 65% completion rate 11-5 record
    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
