Dorsett is a great WR, a Hilton clone. The problem is WR was not a need. It wasn't why we loss to the Patriots. Grigson already had his mind made up, he wanted Dorsett from the start.

 

The Colts were beaten by the Pats due to several factors.  One of them was the fact that nobody was getting open.  At all.

 

T.Y. was doubled and Revis shut down Wayne/Moncrief. 

 

How can any defense account for Dorsett, Hilton, Moncrief, and Johnson?  I mean that is an absolute nightmare.

 

And we still have several picks left to address other needs.

We might as well play Dorsett in the front 7 at this point

I'm stuck on the fact his reasoning was "We still have 8 picks left"

So you just waste one cause you have them?

Grigson is horrible

Yeah why bother to fix problems with best players available?? I'm surprised we didn't draft a backup QB with the 29th pick. Pats sit back with the LAST pick in the draft and get the #12 ranked player and a position we needed to fill. 

 

Who had Brown at #12?

Let this sink in for a moment.

Last year our worst unit was the entire front 7.

Since then- we lost our best front 7 player, and replaced him with a 30 year old backup from a bad team.

Ha

Ahah

still 8 picks left...let's see... a TE, PK, Punter, QB, another WR and finally in the 6, 7th round a dishrag Safety and maybe a Center... and we wonder why we can't beat he Pats. We are going to win the regular season again, score a 1,000 pts and then get our butt run over again.

 

Sick of the whole "Building the Monster" nonsense they keep trying to shove down our throat. We are not, not, not physical, still trying win with finesse. Same old, same old... same old results. Irsay is a fool if he thinks this will get us over the hump. (he's a fool anyway, but more so)

This is why this forum is one of the worst in the entire league. The Colts deserve a better one.

No...we all deserve a better defense.  Tired of seeing us get plowed through year after year and do nothing substantive to improve ourselves.  Colts management knows nothing about defense...just offense.

I don't much care for BPA. If you don't have any huge holes, sure why not.

But we do. And there were some very solid options. Yet we take a player at a position I would say is really our second stronger unit on the team behind QB.

No one in this thread has called Dorsett a bum. No one has claimed, or even insinuated he can't play.

We just didn't need him.

Not even remotely.

they are sheep

They'll chant #trustgrigs straight off a cliff if he wanted them to

 

From NFL.com:

 

"Takes the top off the defense and throws it in the trash. Elite explosiveness. Gets to top speed quickly and is a seamless glider on crossing routes, leaving man-to-man defenses in his wake. Can work outside and from the slot. Elevates and attacks contested catches. Outstanding body control and can adjust to the ball in mid-air. Mind-boggling big-play production with half of his catches going for 25-plus yards in 2014. More than just a vertical-only receiver and has the blazing feet and stop-start to beat zone coverage for big plays."
 
"Dorsett is an ascending prospect who has averaged more than 25 yards per catch since 2012. He can challenge teams vertically inside or outside and he has home-run potential after the catch as a slot receiver. With smaller wide receivers like T.Y. Hilton and Antonio Brown proving that small and fast can win in the NFL, Dorsett should be coveted by more than one team and has the potential to turn into a star in the NFL."

right but we also lost to the pats, steelers and some other teams because our Defense couldn't stop the run. And to hope that some mid or late round draft picks can solve all problems and develop into pro browlers is just dumb. sorry grigson is gambling too much!

The biggest factor was because we couldn't stop the run or sack Brady. Offense was great last year without Dorsett. Gregory or Brown should have been the pick.

I don't even get how this pick makes sense. Unless they're pretty much expecting to lose TY next year.

Why can't we have both? This makes no sense, Hilton's contract is running up, Dorsetts will just be beginning. I can understand the, "But we have other needs and good players were there" argument, but there is no reason we can't resign Hilton next year and have Dorsett on the field too. This is classic overreacting by everyone.

Colts FO thought he was BPA I assume. Based on every player available, defense included, they probably thought he wasn't gonna suck. We took Werner because of a need, not BPA, look how that turned out. 

 

I see no one here saying this kid sucks. 

 

probably Werner was BPA for Grigson?

Yeah, we have various picks left, but being honest it's less likely to find quality starters as those picks go on. It's a dangerous roll of the dice.

Take a WR who we may be able to get 500 yards and 3 TD's, or a safety who can help our defense as a whole?

It just doesn't make sense unless we are phoning it in now and are not going to make an attempt to keep Hilton, or we're going to move on from Johnson after this season.

Just curious. If a 22 year old Marvin Harrison was on the board would you take him?

The patriots are laughing at us right now. How can you draft a WR without seeing how Moncrief does this year? You go out and sign Carter and TY has another year and by that point we might need a WR but right now the patriots are the team to beat and we are continuing to make the same mistakes every year. We need to run the ball and stop the run, even a safety or a linebacker if not in the trenches.

You guys deserve a better forum without the ridiculous mods that are here... and the disgusting people/homophobes who are not even a part of the fans of this team, but of a certain other team. After that is fixed we can talk football. I knew you guys would all be talking about how bad Grigson is instead of discussing the pick. Terrible place.

Who's our best front 7 player? Redding? Langford is better, you forgot to mention a back-up on one of the best front lines in the league... Also Trent Cole > Cory Redding, plus we get Mathis back, Newsome should improve, and Art Jones was probably our best front 7 player last season.

    • It’s also not true, even with the Colts.  Jim Harbaugh wore number 12 his first year in Indy when he was signed to become the starting QB from the Bears before changing to his normal number 4 the following season because Dean Biasucci already had number 4 when Harbaugh got to Indy and left after 1994 in free agency.
    • Greg Cosell was guest at the Ross Tucker podcast and they talked about the QBs of this coming year's draft. Here are some highlights of what Cosell thought of the different prospects:   Trevor Lawrence: - high level traits prospect - no question he has size, athleticism, armstrength. - He can throw with touch, pace. He can layer his throws, he can throw with precise ball placement  - good elimination and isolation ability, improved from 2019 to 2020 - can move in the pocket but needs improvement in that area - has second reaction ability , very good athlete - can have QB run game with him - only concern - tends to rush himself when there is pressure and he's not a snap thrower, more of a full body thrower so when there are people around him he tends to rush his mechanics and play a little fast.  - thinks Burrow's feel for the game was better last year than Lawrence's feel for the game.    Zach Wilson: - second best QB prospect in this draft  - efficient ball distributor, good feel for the timing of the passing game - has playmaking dimension with his mobility - game built on pocket efficiency and off-schedule movement - those things play well in the league - much to work with when it comes to his traits, his feel, his awareness - can run the structure well and adds playmaking to that  - not at Aaron Rodgers or Mahomes level armstrength. Good arm but not a gun for an arm.  - very good feel for the pass game and saw the field well   Justin Fields: - another high level traits player but there are concerns with him - issues with recognition, with vision, with elimination and isolation from the pocket - a lot of work to be done with him when it comes to him throwing with the needed timing, recognizing early in the down or pre-snap where the ball needs to go based on the coverage.  - can drive the ball with velocity, can make the pace throws  - needs things to be clean and defined to be consistently successful - will struggle with pressure early in his career - in Indiana game - blitzed a lot and he struggled a ton with it.  - a bit slow with what he sees - can that be improved at the NFL level?  - but... guys that can move around - they play early and they make plays off-schedule and he can do that.  - "Fields scares me a little bit" ... "which doesn't mean he won't be a good player - so many variables that go into whether a QB with good traits succeeds or fails - team, scheme, coaching... there are things to be worked through with Fields, and you never know if they will get worked through"   Trey Lance - another high level traits QB - strong live arm, excellent athleticism, twitch and explosiveness to the way he plays both as throwing and moving - gives an NFL team the option for designed run game(not quite Lamar Jackson, but we see the value of having that ability) - can make second reaction plays both throwing and running - has the athletic profile that fits the evolving mold of today's NFL QB - the playmaking dimension will get NFL teams excited - live arm, easy delivery, can drive the football. He's got A LOT of traits.  - issue - level of competition and not playing this year(not his fault but... ) - likes him better than Fields   Mac Jones - highly efficient executor and ball distributor in a really good Alabama offense - main question - how important to you are movement and second reaction ability? In today's NFL you constantly hear that this has become an essential trait.  - because Mac Jones is a bad athlete, almost no ability to play outside structure whatsoever  - very good sense of anticipation, good timing - some pocket movement, not great, but enough that it's not a negative - really good feel for throwing in zone coverage - knows where to go with the ball quickly - a lot of good mental traits, but also virtually no movement and second reaction traits.  - need to understand what he is and what he isn't when you draft him   Kyle Trask - Outstanding size, got physical presence to him, looks the part - ball distributor in a really well schemed Dan Mullen college offense - excellent ball location  - no meaningful second reaction ability , has to play within the structure  - when he gets pressured, and he couldn't do much in those situations - arm good, not great - arm strength limitations, lack of second reaction ability, poise and composure breakdowns - probably a backup in the league.   
    • Jeebus SUPERMAN.  I really don't understand your angle here.     Here is the first definition I came to on the internet of usual.   usual-habitually or typically occurring or done; customary.   You are going to actually disagree that starting QBs that get traded to teams are usally customarily offered their old number?   https://titanswire.usatoday.com/2021/02/24/indianapolis-colts-michael-pittman-carson-wentz-tennessee-titans-a-j-brown/   Here's an article today from a WR vastly more accomplished than Pittman that tends to raise an eyebrow at this too.   Now I don't know if you've been in this thread for a while.  I haven't been on the forum much, and I simply said in about the 4th post of a thread that I thought it was unusual.
