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.

    • Perfect example was last year.  Brady gets all the credit for leading the Bucs to the SB win.  Which he did in changing the culture and playing controlled FB.  But everyone knows their D won that game.   You're right, we're a long way from having a dominating defense.  And as of right now, we're not even as good as we were last season, with the loss of Autrey, probably Houston, and a few other role players.  
    • You take BPA even if that position is filled.  The only exception at QB is if you have a Pro Bowl QB less than a decade into his career. Teams like the Chargers, Cardinals, Cowboys and Chiefs will not draft a QB even if Wilson falls to them. If a player is clearly graded highest at 3T, OG or WLB....you take him if no trade is offered worth considering. A team can’t have too many good players. It works itself out long term. 
    • CW announces he's retiring at home pre season game 2 weeks before season opener.
    • He isnt a bad player, just not enough big plays   As Buckeye fan we have had some dominant LBs over the past    He isnt one of them    
    • Good post! People who complain about Ballard should be glad they aren’t Eagles or Texan fans. Sure, you can “buy” a championship team, via FA but I like what Ballard is doing.      There’s question marks on our receivers, CBs and DEs but some of that is health, some experience and just getting better. All three areas could be solid and even a little underrated at times.
