BPA between Defense and OL.

Exactly that's why BPA is stupid 

 

Straight up BPA with no other considerations is stupid.  

 

However I would say you need to do BPA within your needs.  

 

I don't think there is a spot on defense where we couldn't quickly use a young talented guy.  So for me any spot on defense is a need.  DL is maybe the only spot on defense where we might not be able to start a guy like that pretty quickly.

 

OL its a similar thing.  We could draft an OT, put him at RT, leave Mewhort at LG and move Reitz in to RG and have him compete with Thornton.  We could draft a G and put him at RG or move Mewhort to RT and Reitz into guard.  We could draft a Center and we wouldn't have to move anyone.  Or we could draft a swingman and put him wherever he is the best fit on the line.

 

As long as we extend Fleener the only other offensive need then would be RB or backup QB.  I don't believe in drafting RB's in the first and no one drafts a backup QB in the first.

Other, D-Line/Andrew Billings.

 

If Floyd has put on the weight though, my answer will change to Edge.

 

What do you think of Josh Perry from Ohio State? He has the build, he is kind of a Jack of all trades but master of none type of player rated as a round 2 guy. He is 6'4", 253 lbs, and is all over the place and an unsung player on that Buckeye defense. He seems like a "football player" that will do lots more than just one thing.

I said edge but honestly I say front 7. If smith is there I think we have to pull the trigger no matter who else is there. If he isn't there my next choice would be Billings I believe he is the best True NT available this year. I know DT is deep this year but with Billings we get a run stopper who can also apply pressure up the middle and who can in my opinion be really good in a 1 gap or a 2 gap scheme. Spence for me is too much of a risk with Gregory last year as well as Newsome recently. There are other pass rushers to be had in the second or third round depending if we go OL in the second.

BPA in position of need.  Prefer Elliot or Kelly or any one of the top OL. Spence comes with too much baggage. If we take him I think we will probably regret it down the road.  Too many cases of players who can't break old bad  habits, no matter how many times they tell you they have changed.  Not worth the risk with our 1st. pick

I actually did a short write up on him. He's very underrated, and I don't think there is much difference in terms of skill between him and Ragland. He's a plug and play starter IMO.

I get what people are sayin tho we would be one player closer to a great D if not for that stupid pick last draft. 

 

If not for that "stupid pick last draft", what would our WR corp look like right now?

What's it look like right now you have no idea how Dorsette will play 

 

also our WR Corp would be fine with Moncrief and TY with other role players no worse then the Broncos and Seahawks who were fine without 3 great wideouts

You have no idea how any of the defenders we could have drafted would have played with Indy either.

 

By the way, who's calling them "great wideouts"?  I agree we don't need a handful of great wideouts for the offense to be successful, but we do need effective wideouts.  It's not like we can just pickup any ol UDFA WR and expect the offense to flourish.

Laquon Treadwell, lol.

If Treadwell fell to us I would have no problem taking him. The best receiver falling to 18 would make him a steal. IMO he'd add another dimension to our offense.

He would.  I don't doubt that.  I don't think he lasts that far anyway.  But could you imagine how these forums and the state of Indiana in general would react?  It would be something to behold, that's for sure.

That may be true but then we wouldn't have the WRs we have now. With the departure of Johnson that pick is not looking bad now. Hilton, Dorsett and Moncrief are all going to be around for a while.

I agree. We have tried that with little success.

True but then we likely would need to pick up a receiver this year due to Andres sad performance, heres hoping dorsett stays healthy and plays 3rd string the whole year

I like Perry too I think he and Jenkins are great values in the 3rd. Either or both could be gone by our pick lets hope not

In the first If it breaks like I think I am taking Billings at 18. He's going to be a monster. He has elite power and speed. He can close on the QB and make tackles outside of his gap. He could be a special player and should be a significant upgrade over Parry. It would be nice to add two pieces to the DL that can create pressure in the passing game. I don't want to see Hank in a position he feels rushed back. I thinking counting on Art Jomes tio help is a mistake. 

 

It would love to sign a C & G in FA. Then the O would be good and we can focus on D in this draft. We could solidify the DL add an edge rusher, There are some good CB prospects. A couple of FS we could grab. We could inject the D with siome good young talent. We desperately need.

    • Simple math Rivers has helped the Colts win games they wouldn’t have won with Jacoby and I don’t think the Colts would have won any of the three games they lost with Jacoby over Rivers.  MAYBE the Jags game but that’s it.  Despite what some want to admit there were other issues in those loses beyond QB play.
    • Plus, I think adding Antonio Brown makes their offense worse because Brady does not drop it in the bucket for deep passes like RW or Big Ben or even guys like Mahomes and Murray, his throws are a little more flatter on those deep balls he tries to hit or he needs a jump ball guy like Randy Moss to go up and get it. RW throws it much ahead of the WR but by the time the WR catches up with it, it seems like that the last second of that throw is a dip from the throw rather than a flat trajectory. I don't know how QBs do that, that is why they get paid those big bucks. The flat trajectory throws in the 5-20 yard area, Brady has made a living out of. 40 plus yard plays, he has never been great at.    
    • Reggie over Calvin Johnson though? 
    • The colts have tomorrow off and Reich said in the presser today they sent out strict instructions to the players for gatherings tomorrow. The colts are even going so far as to testing families before they come and when they get here If they are visiting a player. I hope everyone is responsible.   That bears game Sunday night with the packers needs to be moved to the afternoon. Way to many good games in the afternoon and one of them should be in prime time.
