I don't think it matters the pick there will be a meltdown .... again

I think Kelly would be cheered because most of the posters here are convinced that the only way to fix the center is to draft for need and take Kelly in the first.

 

Any pick that's not Kelly or Spence is going to cause a meltdown.

I've got about 10 names that wouldn't surprise me, in no particular order:

 

Ryan Kelly

Jack Conklin

Reggie Ragland

Leonard Floyd

Andrew Billings

Noah Spence

Robert Nkemdiche 

Karl Joseph

Taylor Decker

Jarran Reed

 

So there's like a 60% chance our pick is one of those lol, I have no idea with Grigson

Even Kelly or Spence would cause a meltdown.  I don't think there's a single prospect that could get selected that the entire board would be happy with.

Agreed! I feel like even if we somehow ended up with Laremy Tunsil or Jalen Ramsey there would still be some people who would complain.

If Mayocks draft board is any indication, Reed or Billings.

 

Hoping for Shaq. 

 

Wouldn't be disappounted, but still skeptical if Floyd.

 

Kelly, but only if we trade down. Don't care how small of compensation at this point as long as it's not at 18.

The thing with those 2 picks is that they're "need" picks. And there are more people who would prefer to draft for need and take risks than there are people who say go BPA within reason. 

 

Basically if if we don't draft for need, most people will be disappointed.

Kelly, unless he's gone by then.

 

I think its pretty clear that Kelly is going to be the pick, unless Floyd drops...which he won't.

 

I say Kelly because I don't know how you can definitely upgrade the C position by relying upon Blythe, Allen, Boehm and the rest to be any better than KH.  And upgrading the position by counting upon Martin to be there at 48 is very risky.

 

I think Billings is dropping relative to Vernon Butler and Chris Jones.  I'm hoping he's there at 48.

 

Spence has 31 inch long arms.  Pass.

but, you have the red flags with Spence and the fact that most people don't consider C a 1st round value...that's why I say even if the pick is one of those 2 guys, there will still be outrage by some.  

 

DeForest Buckner or Jalen Ramsey could fall to the Colts, get selected and there would STILL be at least a minor outrage by some.  lol

If there's an outrage for Buckner or Ramsey, than the person is obviously trolling at that point. There are about half of us that are reasonable here. My picks for us that I like are Billings and Conklin, but I would like Kelly or Spence if we traded down and got them, just not at 18. The thing that would upset someone like me, is if we reached at 18 and took someone that's a late 1st, early 2nd, without getting sufficient value first. Kinda like Bruce Irvin for the Seahawks a few years ago.

How do you call Kelly a 1st rounder when he has 2 things going against at the start.  I'll give you that he is a good run blocker, but Kelly lacks in Pass Pro.  Second, he is from Alabama.  Alabama O-line men have taken a few years to getting adjusted to the NFL and I am against taking a project to protect Luck.

 

We need an impact player this year, instead of a project

Kelly is a project for the reasons I stated.  You want to add 1 more: we wouldn't be talking about him if he hadn't played for Alabama.

 

I am not willing to trust Luck's health to an Alabama O-lineman

I hope we trade back and get an extra second rounder ....but if we hold the 18th pick, i'd do cartwheels if we got Nkemdiche.  ....i know i'm in the minority here, but he's got the ability and has already demonstrated it ....it's not like he's a "potential" type of guy that hasn't reached it yet. ...he's played very big at times ....just need to get him to do it more consistently ....he's freakish ..i'm willing to take the risk with his off the field stuff as well.
