“D'Joun had the stats last year that forced you to take notice...He shines in two areas that I think are essential for the league: the ability to function at a high level after making mistakes and the talent to turn into a wide receiver and play the ball when it's in his orbit.” – AFC North scout

Passing on Paul Dawson,,,,,,,I'm trying not to cry right now. I wanted Dawson SSOO bad

 

Character issues man. Grigson said no character issues in the first 4 rounds.

You can't tell me this cat is rated higher that Coleman on Grigs board

Why, cause he went to IU? Take the homer glasses off, if we went RB there were better options available there too.

I don't hate the Smith pick.  We need secondary help.  Everything I've read about Smith says he would be a 4th round pick.  He apparently has the raw athletic ability.  Hopefully Pagano can coach him up and make him an elite nickel/slot

Move Butler to S and play Smith in the slot.

My thoughts exactly. Seems like he'd be a strong slot corner and at this point Butler may be able to slide into FS like a McCourty.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. Not that I would have wanted Coleman right there. But with all the time we spent with him I don't know...

He may be. Grigs may not value RBs after the TR debacle so perhaps they get a positional half-round down grade in the final ranking.

A press CB is probably more important than a RB.

No he isn't a 4th round pick. He is much better than that I expected him to go earlier, but at the least he would be a mid-3rd rounder.

I don't care if Indy signs Deion Sanders....     if they can't get to the QB...    IT just doesn't matter. 

 

OK well see. how plays out...   but dang how long can this team just avoid the DL and OL?   

 

I'm sorry but that is where GREAT teams start.        06 Colts anyone?

 

This team will be fun to watch at least.

But...we have no depth behind Davis, Toler, and Butler..our starting nickel Cbs...so we need a CB who can play. Its looks like this kid can.

Sometimes you spend a lot of time with the guys you're really not sure about. We may have come to the conclusion that he's just not what we want in a RB.

Sounds like a good pick to me.

Pagano could coach him into a good player for sure.

Who knows where he would have been picked though.

 

Hell did you see the major reach New England pulled off in front of us? They reached so hard for Jordan Richards, I think Brady asked for his purse back. According to most big boards, Richards was on the bubble of not being drafted.

Coleman would have helped the pass rush, eh?

Mathis is healthy, Newsome should improved, and we signed Trent Cole this off-season.... We addressed the pass rush.

Smith will be great depth is Toler or Davis goes down. We can plug Butler in and use Smith as our nickel.

Yes. CB was a need as much as any of the other positions commonly mentioned. Not a high round pick need, but it looks like the Safeties are falling.

LOL.. Homer glasses aren't on. For curiosity sakes who do you like better at RB?
