Updated Colts Draft (With Player Trade)


Recommended Posts

-Indy tags and trades Robert Mathis to Carolina for their 2012 and 2013 2nd round picks.(I think a new defensive coordinator will hopefully properly use Jerry Hughes and Philip Wheeler as added pressure from the LB spot so we can replace Mathis with these options. Plus I think Jamaal Anderson is capable enough to play DE on running downs and we can put Mario Addison in on passing downs.)

-Indy trades Dallas Clark to St. Louis for their 2012 3rd round pick. (Im making this trade along with the Mathis trade assuming that Manning wont be completely healthy and therefore respectfully released to free up cap space and start rebuilding.)

-Indy signs FA OG Carl Nicks with the money they saved from releasing Peyton. This gives us a darn good OL that is very good at run blocking with the addition of this beast. And he will only be 27 when the season starts so we can sign him to a 4 or 5 year deal and still have him in his prime during those years.)

Draft...

1st- QB Andrew Luck (No brainer pick. Can start right away and be effective.)

2nd- NT Dontari Poe (A bit of a project but has enormous upside and could allow us to have 3-4 looks from time to time. Also frees up Nevis and the rest of our DL to make more plays.)

2nd(via trade)- TE Dwayne Allen (We have our very athletic TE of the future and a great weapon for Luck.)

3rd- S Bacarri Rambo (He may return for his senior season but if he comes out this would be a great pick.)

3rd(via trade)- CB/KR Jayron Hosley

4th- DE Julian Miller

5th- WR AJ Jenkins

and then Irsay wakes up in a cold sweat, "what was my brain dreaming up, sheesh that was insane". and oddly enough the same thing happens to Ron Rivera...he tells the owner "Had the worst nightmare, gave up not one but TWO second round picks for a 31 year old defensive end" Panthers owner "haha I'd have to fire you if that crazy event went down".

two 2nd round picks for a free agent, and a 3rd for a over payed te that hasn't done anything in two years.

you have to be at least a little fair to the other team.

not to mention, the amount of money that Mathis would make under the franchise tag would be ridiculous...it would make his salary the same as the average of the top paid DEs in the NFL

exactly right!

too many posters must think player moves are like playing madden or are completely one sided for their team.

lol ... ur asking alittle to much for mathis even if we did tag him hes not worth a two 2nds if he was worth 2 seconds we would keep him are self...as for clark u might be able to get a late second for him being that there isnt any te in this years draft maybe the giants .....you were better off stayin that we sign and traded manning that would be more realistic...then ur draft was ok but it still make nosense why draft a te when u have a capable te in tamme hes just as good as clark..good effort but not really realistic..

    • 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.
