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

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.

Thanks for the response, what do you think of Big Bad Decker. I would love him protecting Andrew.

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. 

But me or you are not the GM of the Colts. He has been a character risk long enough for a year not to erase the flaws. We shall see.

It's all going to depend on how he interviews. If teams get the feeling that his ecstasy problems were just stupid mistakes that he made as a college student, and that he's learned from that experience, then he'll be drafted as early as his talent would suggest. If they think there's a chance that he could go back to it, then he'll drop. That's going to be the deciding factor, because his physical talent is obvious for everyone to see.

He's a franchise RT. I don't think he's as good as Conklin though. Wouldn't take him at 18 though. It's just doesn't make sense in this draft.

Fans are always complaining about the trouble NFL players get into and yet they still are millionaires.  Well, they start like this.  Super talented guys like Spence or Manziel or Hardy...drugs, alcohol and domestic abuse start in high school or college....we go ahead and make them high picks, and they are "rewarded" for their behavior.  If a kid messes up in college, it is okay to penalize him and let him earn his way to the top with good behavior....not a #1 pick.  Maybe Spence has paid for his mistakes, but I don't think a team should forgive him s easily.  There should be consequences but a chance to redeem yourself.  My belief anyway.

Noah Spence without thinking twice. And ladies and gentlemen. We just got our premier pass rusher.

 

 

Hopefully I can say that in real life after our pick is announced.

 

I don't know why you wouldn't think twice about Spence?

 

He just had himself a very, very unimpressive combine.    He was disappointing at the combine.    And I'm not sure it's clear yet that he has satisfied GM's and Scouts and Coaches that his past is behind him.....

 

Given that we just cut Newsome over two marijuana incidents,  I wouldn't be optimistic about Spence.    He might not even be on board due to character concerns.

I like Conklin too but man Decker is monstrous. We should probably go Pass Rusher in reality.

 

For whatever it's worth,  no where do I read that Decker is "monstrous"....    He's good but not special.

 

He's the 4th rated OT and only Tunsil might be viewed as "monstrous".....

 

I'm not saying he's not good or that I don't want him.....    I just wouldn't over sell him....

Mackensie Alexander appears to be the BPA and actually fills a need. 

 

OP left Josh Doctson off of his list. I think he's probably BPA, aside from Spence and Nkemdiche. Assume it's not a WR, though, and I'd say Alexander is right up there. Billings and Rankins, also, though I like Kenny Clark as well.

CB Eli Apple.

I`m starting to lean toward him with pick 18. I think he will be there at 18 and he may very well be better than the top two rated corners. Apple has good size, speed and excellent in run support.

Tunsil IS Monstrous!!! He won`t be a dud like so many of the top LT`s taken the last 2-3 years!!!

 Pick 18 An Excellent corner is a Must!  The Jags and Mariotta are gonna be kickin' our ___ if we can`t cover!!
 BPA for us William Jackson. He showed Elite athleticism.
 Apple ?? next i guess, but i haven`t liked him that well on the game tape i have watched.
 Next is Rankins then Dodd. We play A LOT of 4 man front and Dodd could be The Man on the left end.

Pass rusher, getting a dominant Pass rusher will make the secondary look brilliant

    • Hopefully Turay can show something this year if we don't re-sign Houston. I've been a big fan of his but time might be against him after this season. Injuries have ravished him.
    • Ended up doing another mock draft using NFL Mock Draft Database's simulator with no trades. A few of the same players, but a few new ones.   21. Teven Jenkins | OT, Oklahoma State - Jenkins ended up falling to 21 in the mock and I decided to take him. Despite the belief that he's a RT or G only, I think he's got what it takes to play LT and lock down the left side of our line with Q.   54. Ifeatu Melifonwu | CB, Syracuse - I think the most prototypical CB in the draft for our system. He's not as much of a physical freak as his brother, but I think he's a better football player. I draft his teammate at Syracuse in my last mock and honestly, I'd take either of them in a heartbeat.   127. Chris Rumph II | EDGE, Duke - See 1st mock. Smaller, explosive designated pass rusher   165. Josh Imatorbhebhe | WR, Illinois - See 1st mock. Developmental WR that could be an absolute steal.   206. Jamien Sherwood | S, Auburn - Sherwood played safety in college, but I see him more as a dime backer or even converting to OLB (6'1.75" 216lb, 34" arms). He gets a lot of comps to Clayton Geathers and I think they're pretty spot on. He is much better in zone coverage than man and is best playing up in the box. In the pros, I see him moving to OLB and I think he fits our mold pretty well, as I can see him putting a little bit more weight on.   248. Tarron Jackson | EDGE, Coastal Carolina - Developmental edge prospect that seems to have been gaining quite a bit of attention and played in the Senior Bowl. I don't think he'll fall this far, but if he does, it's a no brainer.   I'm not as happy with this one since the edge players I took are both guys that are more developmental than anything. I think this one is hedging our bets that we see some much needed improvement in Banagu & Turay, so we wouldn't need draft picks to step in immediately.
    • The opposite is the consensus, where you refer to positional depth.  The dropoff in OT talent from #21 to #54 isn't huge.... The dropoff in talent at DE from #21 to #54 is close to precipitous..... Many scenarios in which they go DE at 21 if they decide to keep the pick.  
    • TRADE 9:   Steelers get pick No.111 from Jaguars via Bengals Jaguars get pick No.128 and No.140   @EastStreet @NFLfan
    • Hey everyone.  I wasn't able to commit to participating in this, but have read through all the rounds of the draft you've done.  I don't follow college football overall that closely, mainly watch IU games and other big games I'm able to watch.   Just wanted to thank you all for educating me on this year's draft prospects so I'll be able to watch the Draft with a bit of knowledge on some of these players.   It's really helpful when I see names in the draft that I've read about on these mock drafts.   Again, thanks to all of you!  GO COLTS!!!
