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

    • Ok, I'll say it.  If your Wisconsin CB has to run after a WR, would it be a Wildgoose chase?
    • Very true.  Even day two.  After Pitts the drop off is significant.  There will be FAs with experience that would be just as good or better.  
    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO
