1St Round Talent Sliding Into The 2Nd Round


Recommended Posts

I've read through the many debates about whether Indy should draft Andrew Luck or trade the #1pick for a small country, but I'm more intrigued about the value of the team's early 2nd round pick (the Rams will pick 33rd and the Colts 34th). Indy will be in prime position to snag a legitimate first-round talent in the 2nd round, especially if there is an early run on QBs like in last year's draft.

There are four, maybe five other teams that desperately need a franchise QB, or at least someone with more talent and upside than their current starter; namely, the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, and Miami Dolphins. Both Andrew Luck and RGIII will be gone by the 5th pick, so if one or more of these teams reach for other QBs in the first round, the odds are very good that a few top-tier athletes at other positions will get pushed into the second round through no fault of their own.

It would be amazing if a solid first-round talent like OT Johathan Martin or OG David DeCastro or OLB Zach Brown fell into the Colts' lap. The best value scenario would be another team trading up for the Colts' 34th pick because they covet some particular player so much that they are willing to trade their 2nd rounder this year plus their 1st rounder next year. What team would be crazy enough to do that? Cough Cough Ugoh, Ahem.

In your fantasy, what first-round player do you want to slide to the Colts in the 2nd round?

This is a economic hypotetical thread.

Do you charge $5 for a burger at a resturaunt but routinely only take $4.50 from customers....no.

If anything, whener you cound get $5.50 you would, and raise the price.

You dont' give a way a chance at a 1st rounder because you pick high in the second round....because the 1st round has more value.

If it's possible, grab as many first rounders as you can....because you could try to trade down and get that sliding first round pick and get more picks.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
