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.

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....

    • Due diligence.  Kick the tires on anything you can and maybe you catch lightning in a bottle. 
    • Mack got $90M gtd...I can't see Clowney getting close to that. I think it would probably be ~$60-65M...which is what Lawrence and Clark both got...and maybe not even that much.    It's not my money...but I would do it. The Colts have the money...and I don't think the Colts will find a better player to add to the team in FA...Clowney is a 3x consecutive Pro Bowler with double digit sack upside...heading into his prime...whose skill sets fits perfectly into a position where they have a long-term need.    To put it another way...I would much rather give Clowney a deal and add him to this team to try and win a Super Bowl...than spend that cash on extending guys 1-2 years before they are due. The Colts have a nice 3-4 year window where they can be a lot more aggressive.   Signing someone like Clowney will make a dent...but it won't hurt them long-term. There is a very good chance this team will have left upwards of $80M on the table over this four-year period. Right now, they have to spend $44M in cash next offseason just to get 89% (using OTC and estimating a $10M increase for the salary cap). They will make that up for sure (in FA and extensions)...but they have the flexibility to commit to a player like Clowney. I get being lean during those first two years...but not now.   The key for me would be the draft capital. If it's only one of those 2nds...I am very intrigued. 
    • You can't believe everything you hear. He's perhaps just testing out market value
    • Well it did say in the article Ballard contacted the Texans about his availability.
    • Thank God Ballard is too smart to fall for this kind of noise. Looking forward to this season I think we have a fine team
