Tough choice really......but I'd go with Ryan Kelly C from Alabama.....probable plug n play from day 1 and would massively stabilize the interior. 

 

I'm really warming up to him.

BPA between Defense and OL.

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.

If Smith is there, take him. If Smith is gone and Spence is there, take him. Other than that BPA (non WR). Id be ok with an O-lineman/D-Lineman.

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.

The only thing stupid about BPA is the lack of understanding some people have of what it means.

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 think ideally the first round is used on BPA among offensive linemen and defensive front 7 players. The second round pick would be BPA from whichever of those two groups you don't take in round 1.

I don't have a problem going BPA in the first round.

 

That said I'd be thrilled if we took Spence.

As long as it's in the front 7 or Oline I'm good with it. 

 

Any of Jaylon Smith, Noah Spence, Jack Conklin, Taylor Decker, Cody Whitehair

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.

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.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
