Would You Draft An Ol, Db Or Wr 2Nd Overall?


Recommended Posts

Can't go wrong with either.

Kalil - Reitz - Saturday - Ijalana - Castonzo. Sounds good to me.

or

Garcon, Blackmon, Collie, Clark/Tamme. Nothing wrong with that either.

or

Claiborne, Powers, Lacey, Rucker. MUCH better than Powers, Lacey, Rucker etc.

Twice for DUI one was bologna he was in his car parked second one was .08 come on.

He's a good kid and learned from his mistakes. He's got incredible talent. Blow a high draft choice on a big physical athletic wideout I sure would.

..a big physical athletic wideout with an alcohal problem....caught 3 times.....no matter how you slice that lunch meat

The Colts have had enough problems like that ........Read: the punter..

When given a choice of a player with 3 arrests or no arrests..why not take the no arrests??

..and that's not saying much..as I KNOW you know........and he's not a repeat offender (yet). :drink:

You'll never make GM drafting problem children

The question still stands....why not take the guy with no arrest record..?

Your acting like he's a crack dealer or murder. What he did was stupid no doubt. But he's a better talent in my eyes. He doesn't cause problems in the locker room or on field. What happened in the past is the past. He moved on and learned.

I want value in the 2nd overall pick. The best value picks there unless we could trade down would be either QB Robert Griffin or LT Matt Kalil. If we couldnt trade down Id rather have RGIII since we have more of a need there for the future than at OT.

I agree but would rather have Kalil instead.

as good as Kalil may or may not become, he simply isnt a "need" on this team. We spent our first 2 draft picks on tackles last year and they both look like they will be good. what we NEED on the o-line is at least one guard, which shouldnt be taken as high as our first round pick. When people assess our O line and D line, they seem to judge them "as is", instead of stopping to think about the fact that Castonzo has played hurt most of the season, and missed 4 games....and Ijalana has been out pretty much the whole year, too...and on D, Nevis looks like he will be a really good DT, but has also been out with injury.

If you plug a healthy Castonzo and Ijalana in at the OT spots and a healthy Rietz back in at OG, then our main need is another OG, not OT.

Call me crazy, but WR is a bigger need than OT...especially when you consider that Wayne, Garcon and Gonzo are all 3 free agents.

QB is a need, even if Manning is healthy, but not a "must have" for this year, unless the right guy is available. As much as i'd rather trade the pick, Luck would be a good fit...but if we dont get the #1 pick, we would be much better off either waiting until next year or drafting a QB later in this draft. Personally, i would much rather have Foles, Tannehill or even Keenum later in the draft over RGIII. If we dont get Luck and the #1 pick, we would be much better served picking a player that would help right now, instead of a different QB so high in this draft.

To me, our biggest needs are OG, WR, CB and SS (not in any particular order)

I hopr you're right....because he's a strong player...

..but 3 times would send me else where..at least in the 1st round

NT and WLB..especially if you intend to make a Tampa 2 work! The problem is a Tampa 2 is zone coverage for corners, Caliborne would be a reach at 2, Blackmon is a reach at 2... Kalil is the only worth while #2. I know about the line issue, I have been beat up time and time again for wanting Kalil. It doesn't matter what round or how pieces were selected, you take the best available player, and it works out even better if he fills a need! Since Kalil is the only good selection there, I would trade down with a team like Miami or Washington, someone who would offer value for RGIII, but are still a top 10 draft pick. Then guys like Coples, Blackmon, Caliborne, Kirpatrick don't become reaches.

while i agree that NT is a need, there arent any that are worthy of a first round pick in THIS year's draft.

And i think that Castonzo and Ijalana will both be good tackles...Ijalana even has enough potential/upside to be one of the better ones from the draft, when its all said and done...so therefore, i dont think that OT is a need...thats why i left Kalil out of "my" draft...

And Blackmon, i think, will be the best WR from this draft...has a good combination of speed and size along with good hands and route running...he may be a reach at #2, but then again, how many times can you remember Polian trading DOWN? If he doesnt trade down, and we end up w/the #2 pick, i dont want to take another OT....if we do, we will soon be like the Lions were when they took the same position (WR) every year in the first/second rounds lol

Ijalana has the potential to play Guard... which would solve the issue the Colts have right now on the offensive line (Guard). If getting one of the highest rated LT's to come out of the draft solidifies the enitre offensive line, it would be a wise move, especially with Manning healthy! But I understand your logic, and we all heard what Polian said, the Colts are set at LT, and won't take Kalil, just like if they had #1 they wouldn't trade the pick for the bounty like I wanted... so if the Colts have #2 and do not trade down, and that probably means Polian is still the GM, then I think Coples or Caliborne are the better pick. I think Manning makes whoever is at WR shine, so there could be value players later in the draft i.e. Jones, Streeter, even Bryoles in the fifth or sixth round! Agreed there is no impact NT in this draft, but Poe or Thompson would warrant a late first round pick, if say they traded with Cleveland, certainly one of those guys in the second round.. or possibly someone else in the third round i.e. Short or Chapman. So it depends on Mannings health and what the Colts do with free agency with their own first... But at #2 if not Kalil, or a trade back, I go defense and either Coples or Claiborne.

Everyone likes to say that Ijalana can play guard, but the fact is, that he's never played guard in his life, and may NOT transistion very well...and the only reason he wasnt projected as a starting LT in the draft, is because he's only around 6'4" tall and most LTs are 6'6-6'7

Coples may be alright in the NFL...he may end up being really good...but he hasnt really shown much in college this year. Although, i wouldnt mind going to bigger DEs like him, once Mathis/Freeney arent around...

As for Claiborne, i think he will be a real stud at CB, but with the defense that Polian seems set on playing, i just cant see him taking one at #2...

Polian has also said that he wants more "playmakers" at every position, besides OT and RB...thats why, especially with 3 of our top 4 WRs being free agents, i could see him taking the best WR in the draft with the pick...

In the end, we may all be wrong...you never know what will happen between now and the draft...but regardless, we will be in position to have the best draft we have had in a LONG time, if we do a good job with the picks we end up with, at or near the top of every round

Hands down? I would have no problem with selecting him in the first. But at 2nd? No. If they decide they want to get him then trade back as many times as possible because Floyd wont go until late first round.

Yea I'm saying if they traded to like Cleveland.

Ijalana had very little playing time before getting injured and looked like your typical rookie(he was expected to be a project at OT or possibly OG when drafted anyway). The back-up OT (now starting) is Lickenbach.

Give Manning an O-line that gives him time to throw the ball and a run threat and he will turn any WR you can pick up in the mid rounds into a probowler

I think alot deppends on what we do on offseason..if we go after FA but most importaly coaches.

if we keep mike murphy and our cover 2, there is no point of having such a talented cb as claiborne. why? i believe you dont need that talented corners to play cover 2, you need more physical/fast than man to man corners. if we were to still play cover 2 im all for trading down or taking floyd.

if we wre to bring a new scheme, its a no brainer for me, a cb. we just dont have talent there, that simple.

however even if we do go corner and cover 2 id understand we simply lack talent there.

i would normally say DT, but there isnt any dareus/suh type of prospect in this draft it seems.

I think at pick #2 anyone besides Kalil may be a reach, so if not the trade down, then you draft Kalil! I don't see why anyone would be opposed to that, it keeps the Colts from having to select a Guard, they can wait till much later in the draft...if they want to give Reitz some competition.

    • So sounds like it’s the Colts’ year to finally make it rain in FA and sign some big name players.
    • Another reason why I think the Steelers might be ideal second trade partners is that they have a 4th Round compensation pick 13 picks later but no pick in Round 5.   Do like the Walker Little pick and hope he does slide to say the 4th and we could nab him.
    • JB is not my favorite QB. But even I would never compare him to the likes of the guys on that list. He is much more in the Hasselback group.    But I also disagree with putting Grigs on that list as well. He wasn’t a disaster or an embarrassment...he was just a disappointment in the end. A guy who couldn’t evaluate talent nearly as well as he did early in his career. And he was an unlikeable guy (which has always made me wonder how he sold Irsay on giving him the job).    But plenty of GMs fail to get there with a star QB...especially early in that QB’s career. Only one team gets to win the SB each year.    I mean...just look at Polian. He got there eventually...but he was gifted PFM...and didn’t win a playoff game until the 6th season. Grigs had won 3 by his 3rd season...and had just as many playoff appearances (3) as Polian over their first 5 seasons. Polian is a HOFer...but my point is that it’s not easy even when you get a great QB.   And as I have said before...Luck was great and my favorite player of all time...but he wasn’t quite Mahomes or Rodgers good...they are true Ferraris. He made mistakes and also didn’t exactly light it it up in January either. I think his prime would have been something to behold and maybe he would have taken his game to a new level...but injuries unfortunately derailed that (which I think many parties are to blame for...not just Grigs).   The guys on that list brought nothing to this org...Grigs at least managed to oversee a winning roster for years. A 49-31 record (.612 winning %) with a 3-3 playoff record, in 5 years, is far from a disaster. If you want to see what a true disaster looks like...it’s what has happened in HOU...where their FO has wasted a QB who (IMO) might be even better than Luck.   So far, Ballard has been superior in just about every facet. But the results are still the results. We can discount 2017...but without it the Colts are still just 28-20 (a .583 winning %) and 1-2 in the playoffs so far. Yes, he has only had Luck for one of those seasons...but that’s just another way of saying he needed Luck to win more games (to win more playoff games). And that’s the argument I always hear to vilify Grigs...that he only won because of Luck. Seems like a double standard...and not the only one.   I think most Colts fans have become huge fans of the process...and that’s great. It’s might be my favorite part of sports. But there are those that are still results-oriented...and I can understand why some might be asking what does it all without the results? This season will be huge to answering that question. 
    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer.
