You're the GM: The Colts Are On The Clock


Recommended Posts

I keep thinking that it is very possible for 3 quarterbacks to be taken before we pick. How lucky would we be if that did indeed happen?

 

1    Tennessee    Laremy Tunsil    OL    Mississippi
2    Cleveland    Jared Goff    QB    California
3    San Diego    Joey Bosa    DL    Ohio St.
4    Dallas    Carson Wentz    QB    North Dakota St.
5    Jacksonville    Jalen Ramsey    S    Florida St.
6    Baltimore    Ronnie Stanley    OL    Notre Dame
7    San Francisco    Ezekiel Elliott    RB    Ohio St.
8    Miami    Vernon Hargreaves    DB    Florida
9    Tampa Bay    Myles Jack    LB    UCLA
10    New York Giants    DeForest Buckner    DL    Oregon
11    Chicago    Shaq Lawson    DL    Clemson
12    New Orleans    A'Shawn Robinson    DL    Alabama
13    Philadelphia    Paxton Lynch    QB    Memphis
14    Oakland    Reggie Ragland    LB    Alabama
15    Los Angeles    Laquon Treadwell    WR    Mississippi
16    Detroit    Jack Conklin    OL    Michigan St.
17    Atlanta    Leonard Floyd    LB    Georgia

 

You are sitting in Grigson's seat and it is time to make a call. Who are we taking?

 

Notable players on the board:

 

Jarran Reed    DL    Alabama
Mackensie Alexander    DB    Clemson
Sheldon Rankins    DL    Louisville
Andrew Billings    DL    Baylor
Robert Nkemdiche    DL    Mississippi (Not likely)
Kevin Dodd    DL    Clemson
Darron Lee    LB    Ohio St.
Corey Coleman    WR    Baylor
Noah Spence    DL    Eastern Kentucky (Not likely)
Hunter Henry    TE    Arkansas
Taylor Decker    OL    Ohio St.
Vernon Butler    DL    Louisiana Tech
Eli Apple    DB    Ohio St.
Will Fuller    WR    Notre Dame
Emmanuel Ogbah    DL    Oklahoma St.
Chris Jones    DL    Mississippi St.
Jonathan Bullard    DL    Florida
Derrick Henry    RB    Alabama
Cody Whitehair    OL    Kansas St.
Austin Johnson    DL    Penn St.
Kenny Clark    DL    UCLA

Noah Spence.

 

Even with all of the character concerns?

 

"Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky: When you are declared permanently ineligible from an entire college football conference, as Spence was from the Big Ten, that would definitely be considered a red-flag incident. Spence failed multiple drug tests while at Ohio State and was banned from the Big Ten in November of 2014. Spence has admitted an addiction to the drug Ecstasy and spent time at a treatment center battling his addiction with the full support of his former coach, Urban Meyer. Spence, who transferred to Eastern Kentucky, was also arrested in May of this year for alcohol intoxication in a public place and disorderly conduct. Spence has passed multiple drug tests since his treatment, but teams still will come calling with question after question for him."

I believe Grigson has learned his lesson by taking risky players. I don't see us taking any of the following:

 

Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers
Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss
Shawn Oakman, DE, Baylor
Gionni Paul, LB, Utah
Demarcus Robinson, WR, Florida
Noah Spence, DE, Eastern Kentucky
D'haquille Williams, WR, Auburn

Rashard Robinson, DB, LSU

Yep, even with the character concerns.

Not happening. Grigson will not gamble this #18 pick. He may trade down but no way will he take a chance on a miss on this pick. Even if he considered it this might be the time Irsay does step in.

Taylor Decker
I'm going to move Denzil Good inside to guard.
This draft is so deep at the D line and secondary. I can get either position in the 2nd round and be very happy. A guy like Eli Apple Kenny Clark for example with the 2nd round pick.
My thought behind this is if were going to give Andrew 6 years $120,000,000 we might as well protecting.

Is Jaylon Smith's pre-draft medical report good in this scenario?

 

If so then him, otherwise, Mackensie Alexander

 

That would be interesting. It doesn't sound like it will happen that way though.

No such thing as a risk-free choice.

That is true but picking a player who has already shown a problem sends that risk way up. Grigson has already said he would not be taking any risky character within the first three rounds.

I think Leonard Floyd may be there if so take him or Ogbah. If not I like Taylor Decker. I am no expert in this but been studying lately :-) I always have had gut feeling and a feel for football things.

I like Ogbah a little better than Floyd for pass rush. The dude is fast.

Andrew Billings 

 

I'd take him over any of the pass rushers or OL being mocked to us at 18.

Cant argue that either, he looks great. You follow it more than me. I do love Ogbah though. What is your opinion on Ogbah? and Decker for O.Line, both look Great to me.

Also I don't understand how everyone is draft and Ryan Kelly in the 1st round. Are there not better players at more desirable positions. Even if you go based on the teams needs versus BPA?

I like Ogbah but 2 things jump out at me as reason for pause:

1. Runs hot and cold in the tape I watched. Not sure if it's a motor or talent issue.

2. Blew up the combine but looks limited scheme wise as he wins with power and doesn't have any bend.

 

I'm not convinced he can play OLB. In that regard, I like Calhoun better.

When you draft 18, there are so many good choices.   That being said, I hope we aren't this high again anytime soon.   

 

I hope we're picking 32nd next year & beyond:D

He's been clean for over a year, and passed every drug test he's taken in that time. Depending on how his interviews went, I don't see him as a character risk.

    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.

    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
