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....

    • OK....    here we go....    my list is not to be taken as complete,  but it's as much as I could find after doing a number of searches...   I'm sure I may have missed a player here or there...   I used the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a reference.    I tried not to go back too far.   So, I won't have guys like Butkus, or Nitzchke or Nobis...     they didn't have good medical, training, nutrition, etc.   So,  I went mostly with guys who have played since 2000...    but there are some who were drafted in the mid-90's and whose career extended into the 2000's....    This list is not ALL linebackers, just most of the top ones.    I did not include outside linebackers.    But I can make another list if you like..   Middle or Inside Backers.   1.  Patrick Willis       https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WillPa98.htm 2.  Navarro Bowman https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BowmNa99.htm 3.  Jarrod Mayo https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/MayoJe99.htm 4.  Brian Urlacher https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/U/UrlaBr00.htm 5.  Sean Lee https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/L/LeexSe99.htm 6.  Jon Beason https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BeasJo99.htm 7.  Brian Cushing https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/C/CushBr99.htm 8.  Jonathon Vilma https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/V/VilmJo99.htm 9.  DQWell Jackson https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/J/JackDQ20.htm 10.   Bart Scott https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/ScotBa20.htm 11.   David Harris https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/H/HarrDa99.htm 12.   Keith Bullock https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BullKe00.htm    
    • I don’t care if you find my “sad” reactions are weak.    I find your views of the Colts....   unique.    Makes me wonder how many games you were actually able to view last year?   As for your claims of using facts and data....  don’t forget opinion.   You live yours (which’s fine),  but sometimes you think your opinion is fact.   Those have drawn some of my sad faces...  and even some laughing faces too.    Camp starts in a week...   plenty for you to opine on....     
    • Amen brother.   I'm lighting candles nightly too.
    • I am just happy there seems to be an increase in our teams health. It is something to be happy about.
    • @NewColtsFan   is your "sad" "reaction" a disagreement to most of my posts?    if so, feel free to challenge with a reply. you're constant "sad" faces are pretty weak. happy to debate with fact and data.
