Dustin

Draft Day 3 Thread

Recommended Posts

Gore is old and Ballard is coming off a serious injury. None of the RB's we have has great speed. Also injuries happen, we need a RB.

 

I don't get the calls for a RB? Why are some colts fans asking for one in 2015? I could see a 6th or 7th maybe, but any higher than that and I'm calling bullocks.

I have a feeling we are going to wait on RB and pick up Josh Robinson later in the draft.

Hope so

We have Jeff Demps. He has pretty great speed.

My opinion on this; Considering our more pressing needs, we can find "A" running back in the UDFA market, or in the last 2 rounds if a good one is on ol' grigs board.

BAL having a great draft.

They always seem to. They have two more picks in this round.

Wonder who will select Dustin's favorite player Jarrett?

IE-O has earned 3 Million since he has passed the 3rd Round

I'm not sure I understand the merits and logistics of this "insurance"? 

 

....and why/how do people have trouble collecting?

Lot of good players still left. 4 more picks right? Excited to see what Pagano does with Geathers. If there's one thing u e knows it's DBs. Want Mike Davis next round if he's still available.

I think it is the same kind of policy that Musicians/Actors have on their voice/face/hands/etc. to protect their livelihood

Marqise Lee is having trouble collecting because he didn't have a major injury, I think.  I don't know the specifics of the policy, though.

 

There are two kinds of policies - loss of value and injury insurance.

A lot of these policies have major loopholes

Man the RBs are flying off the board. But I think Cobb or Robinson will be there for us.

Hoping for Hayes Pullard or Taiwan Jones next round. Derron Smith shouldn't be on the board though. Grigson should trade a future pick

Sounds like this Mike Davis is going to have the familiar issue of being burdened with leeches taking his money. He already helped his mother get one house and she lost it. I don't know the story, and maybe there's a medical reason or something for it, but the fact that his mother is homeless is likely the result of some incredibly bad choices, ones I bet she makes more and more of now that her son is a millionaire.

It was very common back in the Golden Era of Hollywood for Studios to take these kind of policies on their stars to protect them from future losses due to a major injury/death

It is hard to tell why

This is the first draft year that college teams could buy them for their student athletes.  Ifo and Ogbuehi are two notables that had them purchased by their universities.  It encourages the kids to come back for another year.

I thought they said Mike Davis' brother got their mom the first house

For those who want to invest the time.  This provides a nice breakdown of Geathers and a favorable comparison with Randall. Geathers can cover and tackle. Decent man cover skills for a safety.  Led safety class in pass break ups. Shoulder tackler needs to use his arms more.  Aggressive...always looking to get involved in a play.  Takes bad angles on occassion.  Good physical strength.  Think the Colts can coach this kid up and help him to improve his game at the next level.  Jump to around the 40 minute mark for the segment on Geathers.

Can we get Collins now from LSU now!!!! He won't be there in the 6th. Someone will roll the dice on him and bet this situation is nothing.

Taking him now would be stupid. He already said he'd sit out this year if he didn't get taken by the 3rd, not to mention he is currently involved in some way with a murder investigation.

You should put that in the Geathers thread. Here it'll be washed away by the fast moving comments. It's got some good stuff in it.
