Your Top 8 Priorities For Pick Number 18

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the rules...

 

We'll assume these 10 players are certainly going to be gone by 18... Of course nothing is guaranteed in the draft, but for argument's sake, let's assume these 10 will be out of reach:

 

QB

Carson Wentz

Jared Goff

 

RB

Ezekiel Elliot

 

OL

Laremy Tunsil

Ronnie Stanley

 

DL

DeForest Buckner

 

Edge

Joey Bosa

 

LB

Myles Jack

 

DB

Jalen Ramsey

Vernon Hargreaves

 

So if these 10 are gone, if you rank your top prospects for our pick 1 - 8, we would be guaranteed to land at least one of them no matter what the 7 picks beforehand are. We would take the one left with your highest ranking, but you could definitely get someone on the list. 

 

Here is mine off the cuff, maybe I'll refine the list later:

 

1. Jack Conklin - really high on this guy's ability, I think he's got what it takes to be a plus player in the NFL as well as an immediate starter at guard or tackle.

2. Andrew Billings - is an impact player at NT, would be helpful in collapsing the pocket. 

3. Robert Nkemdiche - rare athlete, character issues are a concern.

4. Sheldon Rankins - my one hesitation is I'm not sure whether he's really a good scheme fit, but he might fit in some way and I think he's going to be a good player at the next level.

5. Ryan Kelly - warming up to the idea of taking a center in round 1, although I doubt Grigson would do that.

6. Vernon Butler - I like the guy's movement skill for his size, that's rare and you can't coach it. 

7. Taylor Decker - I'd be fine with Decker if the Colts staff likes him enough.

8. Noah Spence - Obviously concerns exist here on the character side, but he could wind up being the best (or at least one of the best) edge rushers in this (admittedly weak) draft.

I like your first pick, I also like Kelly. I haven't looked much into D.

aiight i'll play

 

1. Andrew Billings-Pretty much exactly what you said. Will help collapse the pocket along with fixing the run defense. Makes our Dline a strength on the team

2.Taylor Decker-Yeah I realize I probably overrate him a lot, but I really like this guy. He's big AND mobile, which tells me he'd do well in our ZBS scheme. Would solidify RT and would allow us to focus a bit more on D in the future.

3. Darron Lee-Still gotta do some research on him, but liking a lot of what i'm seeing so far from him. He's a good tackler and not bad at coverage at all. I think he could be a great leader on defense

4. Noah Spence-Used to absolutely love this guy and thought we HAD to take him at 18. His red flags have kinda turned me off though. Still a good player and easily the best PURE pass rusher in this draft.

5. Mackenzie Alexander-Would probably be higher if we hadn't had gotten Robinson, but having a stacked secondary certainly helps. People say he's overrated due to lack of picks and deflections, but that's cause no one throws to him

6. Jack Conklin- Not as high on him as other people (heck i'm probably the only one who'd take Decker over Conklin) but Jack is still good. He'd fix RT as well. (note if we select Conklin, we better get Allen as well so our line can have three Jacks)

7. Reggie Ragland- Kinda overrated (actually really overrated) but he's really great at tackling. Would fix the run defense immediately. Great instincts. Can compete right away. Just don't ask him to go into coverage.

8. Leonard Floyd- Another good pass rusher. But he still needs a lot of coaching. I think he has the potential to get to double digit sacks, just don't expect it year one.

    • I'm guessing you didn't watch the game live? lol.
    • I gotta agree. Those trades smell of desperation...and unwashed jocks.
    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
