Exactly.  People go way overboard on that narrative.

Let's be honest. We have no clue until they actually play.

I thought Werner was going to be a monster.

I agree he "should" come in and be an impact player....     Who does he have to beat?  

 

Finally DL and a nice pick....      Go Colts

 

Instant starter.

 

Stanford guys are being drafted big time in rounds 2 and 3, it seems like

There's going to be a stud available when we pick 10th tomorrow. If we didn't take a WR 1st Rashad Green in the 4th would have been a steal.

I was just kidding, Miles is a good dude.

Alright my bad for not realizing. I am not defending Miles one way or another I don't know much about him and/or if he eats grass haha. I just don't think he would stick his neck out there and risk being wrong with a situation like this that is all.

Love the pick for the Colts. I am biased being a Stanford Cardinal fan. And Ty going in the 3rd... I am very pleased.

Half of Werner's "splash" plays came against BAD teams...      But everyone liked his "motor" ...    It's not over for him...  just out of position.

hmmm.... Weaknesses

Slender legs, tight hips and boring feet. Feet will stall at contact when squared up against the run. Initial punch by an offensive lineman will jostle him. Lacks power to play inside. On the ground far too often. Must improve hand usage as pass rusher. Can be blocked by tight ends. Benefited from team-oriented defensive scheme. Doesn't gain much ground with initial steps as pass rusher. Relies on hustle sacks and lacks counter moves.

Yes. Those are some troubling negatives aren't they? The kind that seem difficult to overcome.

If they could somehow come away with Grady J, Clemmings, or Dawson tommorrow  I will be really liking this ...

 

I thought we'd be taking a RB in the 4th....

 

Now I think we'll be taking a safety and a RB in the 5th...

 

That's just my hunch....   But wouldn't Clemmings be nice in the 4th?!?

He's well-known for being a little. . . off-the-wall.  Crazy like a fox.  And yes, he likes to graze a bit during games.

Seems like it, states even if he bulks up he still may not be very adequate at a pro level from the sounds of the NFL draft analysis.  Still it waits to be seen.

 

Mayock and other seemed to like the pick though.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic.....

 

Sources Tell Us "He plays hard like Trent Murphy did at Stanford, but Murphy was a better athlete. He's not explosive enough to be a reliable pass rusher and I don't see him as a run stuffer." -- Pac 12 regional scout

 

Bottom Line

Data driven teams will be intrigued by Anderson's stuffs, impact tackles and total pressures, but the tape doesn't validate his potential to produce these numbers on the pro level. The body type screams 3-4 defensive end if he can bulk up and add power, but he might lack the balance and toughness to make it there. Anderson might just be a "tweener" without a clear NFL position fit.

Sounds like Les Miles and Steve Spurrier must be related somehow then haha.

That's a less than stellar review.

They also said JJ Watt would slide inside "on occasion" to rush the passer. Old scouting reports are fun to read.....

It sounds like he is not athletic and has a narrow base. Not the kind of body type I prefer for the Dline.

Was talking about college tape genius...    

 

OK...      Oh and compare BjW's stats against all "pass rushers" taken that season... 

 

JUST saying....  First round picks are far from guarantees of success.     FAR FROM IT.

You mean splash play

We are talking about C Carter's kid now....     he is NO guarantee..      1st pick was a stone cold wake up call to him. 

 

Griff will show up and out work him ....  can he out play him?    I hope so..      Carter's just an entitled name ...  thus the Dorsett pick.

GW will probably be the odd man out

    • i would probably trade back( or up to get a QB if it looks like they will be gone), maybe consider lamb   thats pretty early for a DT imo, they would need to be very very good for me to consider a one there.  i would not usually want a guard at 6 either but nelson was worth it, a dt would have to be on that level for me too
    • We'll never know what happened behind the scenes in regards to Luck's retirement.  He may have mentioned it to Irsay or Ballard in March and they told him to "wait on it and see how you feel."   Or, he may have come up with it some time in the summer.  I don't have a problem with the retirement, just when it happened.  It left the organization in a very bad position and if it would have been announced in March, Ballard could have looked into doing something in FA or the draft.  As far as Ballard's philosophy is concerned, I believe in the "build through the draft" philosophy but we have to consider that not all draft picks work out well for most teams, only a small percentage.  If you have holes to fill now, FA is sometimes the only way to go.  Win five years down the road is fine but teams and fans want to win now.  On the other hand, I don't like the idea of signing every FA that hits the market and paying them astronomical salaries.  I would, however, love to see us be a little more active in FA if that's possible.  For example, why not draft a QB and get a FA QB that he can learn from for a year?  A FA DT would help if one isn't available in the draft; waiting until 2021 or 2022 for that great, pass-rushing DT doesn't make any sense when you can get a good one in FA. 
    • Brown, Epenesa, Simmons, Jeudy, Kinlaw, Wirfs, Lamb... Dont care which QBs are drafted... Build that Defense and/or strengthen the Offensive line or Receiving core... No project QBs until round 3. QB in FA...sure.  That QB risk (Lack of production next year(s)) is not worth the draft capital Ballard has built up. If more than one of those guys are available at our pick...Then I’m ok with trading back a couple slots...pick up another 2nd next year. 
    • Turray was outstanding prior to his injury and going into his 3rd season we should really see it all come together for him. My next would probably be Willis, he really came on as the season progressed and while i dont think he is going to be a premier SS in the league he will be very solid.
