Yep...if they had decided to go after Treadwell instead, I would've snagged Stanley if he wasn't already selected by the time I picked. I'm almost positive I would've had to move up regardless lol.

I would have picked him instead of A'Shawn Robinson

If he was on the board, you would't have gotten my pick. haha

 

My thumper went to the Giants at #10 (stupid Giants), and my favorite OT prospects got snagged (stupid Ravens, Philly).

 

Oh well, I'm very content to load up another first rounder and fall to #35.

I was ticked. I saw he was still on the board, and the very next post was the Ravens taking him. I was in the break room going, "NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

Treadwell was unbelievably tempting...but I couldn't turn down Stanley at that spot. Doesn't help if Stafford doesn't even have time to say hut!

I think the trades are reasonable enough. Probably more than you'd have in a typical year, though, especially since we're not trading any players.

With the 17th pick the Atlanta Falcons select local Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd. Possible ILB in Dan Quinn's defence and good pass rusher too.

 

@crestmount is on the clock.

And now the Colts are on the clock! i wonder who they are going to pick...

You beat me to it.  Who did Crestmount select? He is selecting for Atlanta.

 

JPFolks is picking for Indy.

Hm, I don't know what happened... @scousecolttagged @crestmount, but the Colts are @JPFolks team indeed...

You're right. JPFolks is on the clock, not Crestmount.  Crestmount is picking after Indy's pick. 

 

@JPFolks you're on the clock.

@Superman Please update the selections to reflect that Atlanta selected Leonard Floyd. Thanks.

 

@stitches Darron Lee is off the board. Baltimore selected him.

 

(I can't believe I am still at work following this draft. I should have left an hour and a half ago. Haha)

The Colts selection should be very easy. I would be running to the podium if I were Grigson right now.

I think I could guess who you'd take, but given this choice I'd actually be kind of on the fence between 4 guys.

Im with you. There's actually 8 or 9 left that I see that I would ultimately be fine with. Obviously, there's a few that I'd be much happier with, but plenty of talent there for the taking. It'd be hard to go wrong here for me, no matter if Colts stand pat or move back for more (or future) picks.

Thats probably who gets my vote. Rankins would be another good choice here too.

I am actually shocked that all 5 of my options I had listed for this are still there.., I was actually hoping several would be chosen to make this easier! I know from all site discussions that no matter who I pick I will tick off the 80% who want someone else hahahha.  

 

So Atlanta has picked right?  It wasn't on the board...

    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change.
