Multiple players I could see being upset with the Dorsett pick:

 

Moncrief

Duron Carter

Ryan Lankford

Josh Lenz

Vincent Brown

Griff Whalen

 

and maybe to a lesser extent, Andre Johnson.  I wonder if it's anyone outside of this group that has a problem with the pick.

For 2015, however, he won’t do much to narrow the 38-point gap between the Colts and the Patriots.

 

 

I don't understand this mentality at all - from the fans, media, anyone.  We scored 7 points in the game.  With their secondary losses and our offensive additions, in one offseason, they may have gone from being able to lock us down completely to having serious, serious problems trying to cover us.  They have to stop us too.

 That would be TY, Moncrief, A Johnson,  The DEFENSE.

I almost feel sorry for this kid, he sounds so excited to be here, yet some people seem like they don't even want him here.

It really is sad. Kid hasn't even gotten the chance to show himself. Any other team would be more than happy to have him.

You said it 100% correct. Any OTHER team. Not a team who didn't need him.

We may not have NEEDED him this season, but with his speed and ability he'll be around for awhile and only get better. How long do you think AJ will play?

It's not like he's going to be useless. Even this season.

Makes sense. The players probably know the team weaknesses just as well as anyone. If I'm Dqwell Jackson for example, I'm praying for Eddie Goldman because it makes my job alot easier.

Plus you could get the feeling from the press conference that Pagano wasn't thrilled with the pick either. I think there are a few people in the building who aren't thrilled about the pick. Probably looked at it as a missed opportunity to close the gap between the elite teams like the Pats and Steelers.

That doesn't matter. Your first pick should be BPA by NEED. Everyone did it but the :colts:

Redskins got RG3 much needed protection

:flyingelvis: got who they hope is Wilfork's replacement

Rams got a dynamic RB to help take the stress off Foles

Jags added someone who could give Luck headaches

Etc Etc

It will be the TY, Moncrief, and Dorsett show when it's time for AJ to move onto greener pastures to retire. It's a good idea to draft the extra WR now while we still have AJ. Our newly aquired defensive talent needs to step it up in camp and show they can contribute right away.

I'm not saying we shouldn't have taken a position of need but we got a great WR that can be with us for a long time. We need young good receivers that Luck can have chemistry with throughout his career here. People need to look at the plus sides of the pick and they might be a bit less upset.

Yes, we needed some other positions but what we got wasn't bad at all.

Not to say that Dorsette won't be a good player, but it's almost comical how bad Ryan Grigson has been. A first round WR? Are you kidding?

 

If the Colts had anything but the #1 overall pick in 2012 this guy would be fired.

I guess we should start drafting like the Rams, Redskins, and Jags then. Seems to be a recipe for success.

That is in fact the exact opposite of how a team sould and how most teams do in fact draft. 

 

And using the Rams to illustrate your point is freaking hysterical.

This was a deep WR draft, could've easily gotten someone late. Dude is 5'9, what 5'9 WR goes first round?

Grigson just stinks with 1st round picks, it's that simple

Aside from Luck, what first round pick have we had since Grigson showed up that has lived up to a first round talent?

Give it some time and wait until the season starts. I think we are in better shape than people think.

WOW all i can say is we addressed our DL with Anderson Parry they are damn good football players i watch Stanford alot  geathers is a development guy but can be a future starter Djoun Smith is a fighter will be a damn good player so overall we def upgraded D in short term and long term I like Langford , Cole , Irving ,Lowery  and then the draft so who cares about Dorsett i could see people being overly upset if we went WR OL RB etc but we addressed D alot in draft .. 

 

why dont we leave the scouting up to the Pros..?

Yes, it was a bad move by Ryan- Maybe Chuck and him  did not watch how our Run D got steamrolled in the playoffs by the Pats. I mean he did not thinkj there was one D player at 29? He could have easily picked a WR in the 3rd.

What plus sides of the pick? You're talking about aGM who drafted the current number 1 receiver in the 3rd round, and a guy who had a chance to become better than that in the 3rd round as well.

The only reason he was ranked so high on our board because Grigson got hot flashes from him having 4.2 speed.

He's fine for another team, but not for us. I find it comical how people always say the Colts need a big, physical WR and then chest when we get a guy who is about the same size as Tavon Austin.

Like I said, fine player, but bad pick. I don't think anyone is directing their anger at him though.

The "reasons" were Malcolm Brown doesn't "fit" our scheme

Gregory as we know has the "character" issues and Grigson made it clear he wasn't drafting character issue guys in the first

Don't understand why Landon Collins wasn't drafted after Grigson drooled over him

It's no logical explanation as to why we took a WR other than Grigson STINKS with 1st rounders

    • Cowboys will select Jaylen Twyman DT Pitt @crazycolt1 OTC
    • Love this guy. Gone from seemingly undrafted to a late day 2, early day 3 pick.
    • I agree. He has the size and length that Ballard wants plus I just think he will be a good pro. 
    • I like Smith, but I'd still save the bank and maybe go after Dan Arnold or Gerald Everett first, and max out a contract for one of the stud pass rushers in free agency - yannick, lawson, hendrickson. By doing this then that alleviates two draft picks to spend on those areas and you can concentrate on the total depth on the roster.
    • Bingo. The bolded is why I have little use for their college rankings, etc. Failure to project, or account for changed circumstances, etc. They tend to freeze players in time, when prediction is a major factor in scouting, drafting, and player acquisition.   They said this about Justin Herbert before the draft: There’s a lot of potential with Herbert, but to pick potential over what’s been proven isn’t the best way to go.    About a rookie. Just kind of crazy to me to think that anything is proven about a draft pick, much less to be so dismissive about potential. Just as an example. None of us can know the future, but they have a particular blind spot for anything that hasn't happened yet.   In this case, they make little allowance for Wentz's potential to return to his previous form. Not even the MVP form of 2017, just start with the previously praised level of play in 2019. If Wentz plays that well in 2021, he's already twice as good as any of those other players, except maybe Fitzpatrick (and he's still likely to be decidedly better than Fitzpatrick). It shouldn't be hard to understand why a team would value 28 year old Carson Wentz over 38 year old Ryan Fitzpatrick, right? Or at least mention that basic fact?   And in the ultimate irony, they say 'if you want a previous MVP-level QB, go with Cam Newton,' even though Cam Newton won the MVP six years ago now, and looked like he can't even throw the ball anymore in 2020. So they can ignore Cam's recent performance to make their tortured point, but won't consider adjusting for Wentz's bad year?    It should be obvious that the Colts anticipate Wentz playing better in 2021 than he did in 2020. If he doesn't, this trade will be bad for the team. But to analyze the trade as if it's not even a possibility -- which a lot of people have been doing, btw -- is kind of disingenuous.
