I still can't wrap my head around this. Are they expecting to not re-sign Hilton next year?

Im worried that's exactly what they expect. A fan revolt might happen if we blow a first round pick because we aren't re-signing a fan favorite

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

No one is forcing you to be here.

 

Before the draft: "We should take the best player available!"

 

After the first round: Fire Grigson for taking the BPA because he's a WR!

There are obviously limits to it.  You don't blindly take BPA; you have to consider position, holes on your roster, etc.

 

Yeah, the record seems to say otherwise.

Luck covers up a lot, just like Peyton did

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.

Neither Langford nor Cole are better than Redding, that is laughable.

Are you implying that Dorsett is a future HOF

Yeah I'd take any 22 year old future HOFer

 

So you're saying you would take a receiver.

 

Then why are you arguing about it?

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

Ha

ha , ha ha, ha, I hate draft day

so i guess if the BPA with our second pick is a wr we will draft another one?

Precisely. Anyone saying that this pick is okay because BPA no matter what had better be okay if we take 9 WRs this draft. All about the Board right?

:colts: pick WR

Explain how it isn't a waste then get back to me

Maybe you quit being an armchair GM and realize AJ and TY are our only established WRs? Moncrief has potential no doubt, but he's no lock to become great. Also, AJ is getting up there in age. He's not gonna last forever. Maybe it speaks about those players you mentioned that they were still on the board?

Guys you really need to just trust Grigson. I mean, the way he's absolutely killed our last couple of first round picks, I'd say he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Because if a guy is a future hall of fame player it's a little different than a middle of the road WR prospect

I'd also take young Joe Montana, is this a reason to draft Garret Grayson at 29?

It is really not the hard.  They put months of work in with thousands of man hours to come up with the board as the team sees it.  Given all their perceived defensive needs, clearly Dorsett was rated far enough ahead of any other player that they HAD to take him.  If they don't then they waste all the effort they put into preparing for the draft.

It's Polian all over again, except that Polian was actually a good drafter for the majority of his career. 

 

 

HA.  to think I actually respected your pre-draft posts.  you have embarrassed yourself in this thread several times.

Grigson's first round picks:

-Luck (duh pick, anyone with half a brain knew to take Luck here)

-Trent Richardson (bust)

-Werner (bust for a first rounder)

-Dorsett (could be a great player, but we have so many holes on the roster)

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!

 

We get Mathis back this year.  We added Trent Cole.  We added Nate Irving.  We have 8 (I believe it's 8) picks left.

 

One DT was not going to solve all of our problems.  I like the fact that we went with such a massively talented player like Dorsett.  Speed kills.  It just does.

 

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.

 

As I said above - Mathis is back this year.  We added Cole and Irving in the LB corps.

 

And I agree, the offense was consistently good last year when it came to average/above average opponents.

 

However, that same offense was putrid against the Pats because no one could get open.  T.Y. was doubled.  Moncrief and Wayne were virtually non-existent.  We couldn't establish the run either.  Hopefully we can add a right tackle at some point.

Greene from FSU in the 3rd.... plenty of WR'S in this draft

Bad pick, end of discussion

I came back because people are literally laughing at you guys for being so bad.  I hadn't been here in months, and won't eve be back because you guys have no clue what you are doing as mods... and letting the Patriot fans run wild on the forum just like they do on the team. Colts forum is an epic failure.

Ban this account please.

Werner was BPA as well. Many here wanted Xavier Rhodes. He was clearly a better prospect the Werner but Grigson tries to do too much.

 

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.

So Dorsett and Hilton will blow the top off of the defense and we either dump it off to a 6'2''+ guy underneath or let them set up blocks for Gore and Coleman(heh heh).

 

or we trade TY Hilton for Wilkerson and kiss our SB season goodbye.

 

choices... choices...

I swear Grigson could have drafted someone who didn't declare for the draft and yall would defend him

"A real under the radar guy"

He's a horseshoe guy!  He chops wood.  So much wood chopping. :Cry: So much :Cry: wood shopping :Cry:

 

I just hope he chops wood at a little better pace than Werner.

How?  Was Polian a bad drafter?

Maybe, who knows. I feel like he wasn't, though. He filled a need for defense, but turns he he's (most likely) a bust/average player. BPA is always the best route to take so ensure you get a solid player regardless of need. 

 

I disagree! You need to draft the Best Player Available at a position of need that's the only way you can built a complete team and not becoming one dimensional. At the moment we are repeating the same mistakes we made under Polian. Dorsett is a great player, Luck is awesome but if they can't get on the field because your Defense sucks you have a problem.

You really can't say that as a fact. Lots of  people wanted Rhodes, including me. Werner and Rhodes filled defensive needs, Grigs just chose wrong.

    • That's because Adams was mad from the play before and probably chirped at Rodgers. It was still a good pass for Adams, he just didnt get his feet down..and he couldve. Lazard was wide open tho.
    • His list last year was reasonably close on where players were drafted.   A good place to start knowing these names.  Thanks!   Ballard has targeted many players that perform well in the senior bowl; I expect it to be even more important this year considering there will be no combine.  
    • I have to imagine that the Colts’ offer and TY’s asking price simply don’t meet.  It happens all the time with vets.
    • I would get bent too. They made it to the NFC championship game, hes still playing at an MVP level, and they draft a replacement for him that might not start for a few years? Then they make it to the NFC championship again, and instead of having a 1st round rookie playmaker out there contributing, they have their 1st round investment sitting on the bench. When you're that close to winning a superbowl you gotta add more weapons in the draft, not build for the future.   Also Stafford 5yrs younger is nowhere close to the level Rodgers is now. How many MVPs has Stafford won? How many playoff games has he won? How many pro bowls & all pros? Give Megatron to Rodgers and watch what happens. Rodgers gives us a 2-3 year window to win a superbowl. Stafford gives us a 4 - 6 year window to make the playoffs and get bounced in the 1st/2nd round. He will never outperform Mahomes or Allen.. Rodgers can.
    • I didn't listen to the link, but I don't believe Indy pushed him out. I just think Rivers was done and was kind enough to tell the Colts as early as he did (and not pull a Luck)    1) He's already been talking about wanting to coach his kid in high school football, (high school only last 4 years) 2) Franchise LT just quit  3) Your arm is nowhere near what it used to be    Plus, I've been to San Diego a few times, and boy is it beautiful. Indigrayapolis pales in comparison.
