Official Colts Forum 2016 Mock Draft - Selection Thread (Make your picks here)

Recommended Posts

You guys are lucky I'm not the Colts GM. I'm not so convinced Billings is the right pick here. Although he is one of the guys I'd be heavily considering.

I don't agree with fanspeak's board, but that is for another topic of discussion :).

I said the same about Fanspeak's board, but then again, I have been looking at about 5 separate rankings to get a real feel for all the players. Fanspeak is very different than most of the boards I have looked at. Ok, that is enough, we don't want to get ourselves off topics. Colts pick?

I am nearly ready to pick and haven't seen ANYONE else suggest this player (not saying no one has, but just haven't seen it).  I have thought long and hard about what got us our only Indy Super Bowl win and I find a parallel.  It is a slight reach and I tried to trade down but no takers.... stay tuned... Can anyone guess?

If you don't have that stellar CB/OLB for pass defense or the cornerstone OT of the future, you may have to settle for a solid producing DT that will give you more than enough for a rookie contract.

 

If it is a reach, it better be for pass defense - CB, Safety or OLB :)

Marlin Jackson....we are going to the SB, we are going to the SB, he was a 1st round CB too that was perceived to be a slight reach.

 

Eli Apple????

Chad, sorry to say you're not on target... I think the Colts pass on a Tackle altogether... the problem is the Centers and Guards are TOO much of a reach at this pick... I do like 2 CB's, but with D'Joun on board and our new FA, I think perhaps we can skate until next year to use a first round pick this year on a CB...The DT's are NOT game changers... solid, but not the difference we need to have a dominant Defense to stop the RUN and PASS... anyone getting warmer?

Just remember this on draft day, when people on this board are slagging off Grigson. Heavy is the crown...

I was back and forth between both safeties, this guy is a KILLER... he can also ball cover... the other Safety was also considered, but I read so many sites worried about his smaller frame and ACL problems....

    • Leonard was a stat monster, 1st team all conf multiple years, conference D MVP multiple years. Banogu was 1st team all conf mult years and great stats. Okereke at best was honorary mention.    Leonard was a small school question mark. Banogu comes from a team that's known for scheme and lack of technique/position coaching. But both were tops in their conference. Okereke was much less of a standout at a school known to have great S&C and defensive coaching.   Not saying Okereke won't be good, or even great. What I am saying, is, Okereke had much better S&C, much better coaching, etc. (than the other two), but never achieved the recognition or performance level of the other two. I simply think his ceiling is lower. I definitely think Banogu has the most potential to translate over the next couple years.
    • Look at your line I put into bold...      "there's no reason to think he doesn't have 5 years of elite production left."   Holy Cow.    No reason?     How about because very few linebackers,  especially middle linebackers with all the pounding they take,  last to age 33-34 playing elite football.    It just rarely  happens.   There may be an exception to the rule.   But that's it.    Most times,  the level of play falls off pretty dramatically.   Do you see Chris Ballard giving up a 2nd round pick or more to get Wagner?    I don't.   After what you've seen from Chris Ballard for two and a half years,  I'm not sure why you'd think that?
    • Fair post.   Good post.    My bad.    I know what I did wrong,  but no need to rehash it.    I was wrong.     Apologies to all, especially @Superman who I accidentally offended.  
    • Yeah, Banogu or to me it's Okereke. 
    • Things did not go our way tonight but I will take how the standings are for now being that July is half over. We have been fortunate that the Cards and Brewers have struggled more than we have. At this point in the season we just have to play well enough to get into the playoffs at 50-44, then anything can happen. I am hoping Hamels is back by mid August.
