Our 2015 draft class Vs Grigson's draft class. Game and rules

Recommended Posts

A person of interest can go from just that to the killer in a matter of a couple hours or a couple days. It happens often. Just watch The First 48. An officer can be easily interviewing the killer and not know it at the time (Do to not having the evidence at the time of the interview) then they find the evidence they need. Next thing ya know ya just interviewed the killer

It's more then just a simple football decision.  There is a bit of PR to worry about as well.

If anything becomes of it you just release him.....story over.

Sure, but why not take a flyer with a 6-7th round pick? You're virtually risking nothing for a big payoff. And as far as I know, which isn't much, wasn't he simply being interviewed by the police because he used to date the woman? It's not like there was a bloody glove or anything.

 

What happens if you spend the pick and it turns out Collins killed the woman?

 

Then the Colts go down in history as the team that drafted a double-murderer.    That's why everyone stayed away.

 

With the beating the NFL has taken the past year or so,  no owner wanted any part of that.    All 32 teams stayed away.....

And in the process become the organization who picked up a killer.....if that would have been the case...Obviously with hindsight that's not the case. We did not know that then though and if he would have been the killer the media would have made a huge circus about that and some much less professional would have likely taken the opportunity to drag up other issues in certain other peoples past in the organization...Next thing you know we are getting attention for multiple reasons and none of them positive

All 32 NFL owners and GM's didn't agree with you.

Out of respect to Jared's game, I'll ask that we save the La'el Collins discussion for another thread.

 

And if you're going to play, don't pick La'el Collins, per Jared's rules.

You'd still face a lot of criticism for it.

If he is charged then release him. What's the big deal? Like the nation that has the attention span of a 6 week old puppy is gonna remember who drafted some kid from LSU. Fans get on forums and Twitter and act like they care, but they don't.

And yes, that awful pounding the NFL has taken. A bunch of fake outrage.....as the ratings continue to be outstanding.

I don't think there's an argument for you,  or me,  or anyone else on this website that we know better than all 32 NFL owners.

 

There's a reason they all passed every time around.

 

When it comes to PR,  the NFL is normally pretty savvy.   But they had just finished their worst PR year -- ever.

 

Drafting a possible double-murderer was simply not acceptable to anyone in the NFL.    Not until Collins was cleared.

This. . . if Collins was drafted and he turned out to be the murderer then it puts the focus back on the NFL for the whole violence against women moral panic we are currently under.

I'm hiding La'el Collins talk in this thread. Please start a thread on him, or dig up one of the old ones, if you want to talk about that decision. It's not the purpose of this thread.

29. Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon (pains me because I really have grown to love the Dorsett pick a lot. I think he was likely the true best BPA at 29 and I think he is going to be a star. I just love bolstering the trenches and happen to believe I can snag another very good WR with the next pick.)

65. Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas St.

93. Henry Anderson, DE, Stanford

109. Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson

151. Shaquille Riddick, OLB, West Virginia

205. Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi St.

207. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, DB, Oregon

255. Anthony Harris, S, Virginia 

 

Overall I'm really happy with Grigsons draft class. It's really anyones guess if theirs can come out better than his. I bet hindsight says most of ours won't.

You know why he wasn't being drafted, because he threatened not to sign and it's a lot easier said than done to risk a draft pick for nothing. If he would of signed, a GM would of taken him, and it would of been earlier than the 7th. He was getting talked to by the police about a murder at the time. You can't expect Grigson or any other GM to draft him because of that and it won't be allowed here. Too big of an advantage over Grigson's draft. Everyone will do it and it will be a free hit.

But I was saying at the time someone should take a flyer on him. Hell, John Elway threatened to play baseball. Not my fault the owners stupidly wanted to make an example of a kid for the crimes of ray rice.

Yes, I'm stubborn.

Here is my draft...

 

1- DT Malcom Brown (He would play a lot of NT on passing downs, and would share time with Jones and Langford at DT/DE on running downs. I as a GM would draft plenty of help in the trenches first and foremost.)

 

2- CB D'Joun Smith

 

3- DE/OLB Trey Flowers (Gives us another option for the future at OLB. Can learn for a year under Mathis, and has more promise as a pass rusher than Werner.)

 

4- S Clayton Geathers

 

5- DT/DE Michael Bennett (Gives the Colts DL great depth now with adding Brown and Bennett.)

 

6- RB Josh Robinson

 

7- C/OG Andy Gallik (We are still a little uncertain who will be our C of the future, and Gallik provides another option there. He can also play OG when needed. Is from Boston College so he has the smarts.)

 

8- OT La'el Collins (This pick is obvious. He could easily be the Colts starting RT from day 1 or at least by mid season.)

Trey Flowers isn't much of a pass rusher. Potential to be an excellent strong side LB though.

1:29 Landon Collins SS

3:1   Tyler Lockett WR

3:29 Paul Dawson ILB (hurts, bc Anderson is one of my favorite players from this draft)

4:10 Grady Jarrett DT

5:15 Michael Bennett DT

6:29 Gerod Holliman SS

6:31 Jeremy Langford RB

7:38 Quinton Spain OG

 

Bumping this out of curiosity. I wonder what everyone else thinks of their alternative drafts at this point of the year.

 

I'd replace Collins with Eric Kendricks, and Dawson with Henry Anderson. Could probably do something different than Michael Bennett in that case, also. Holliman isn't even on a team right now, not even a practice squad. Langford has had a couple of breakout games; he was always going to be good. Spain is on the Titans roster, hasn't played very much.

Jeremy Langford was a good call. So far anyways, looks better than Josh Robinson. Scrapping Henry Anderson in favor of Dawson was obviously one that I'd stick with Grigson on. Tyler Lockett woulda been a nice pick as well!

I put Jeremy Langford in so many of my mocks last year. He looks like he'll be better than Duke Johnson and Ameer Abdullah long term. He's definitely better than Coleman who is still fumbling like he did in college.

    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
    • lol... you wrote a novel. while i didn't read it all, i did skim. the mock draft stuff, it wasn't a poll. it was a well defined systemic grading. if you're mom can do well on the 1st round, why didn't your favorite guys? lol. on the wide receiver study, it was laughable. no defined parameters, no comparative cross position stats, etc.. not even Busch league stuff.  like i said, legend in your own mind.   in terms of who can dish it out, but can't take it, look at your reaction above to a "sad".... what a rant/tantrum.....  self awareness is obviously not your strongest trait. feel free to "crush" me anytime... gives me a good laugh.
    • very astute observations!!
    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.
