2016 NFL Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

The draft is here!    As a sports fan, this is the best time of year.  NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs, NFL draft, all kinds of stuff going on.  Similar to our game threads, all pertinent discussion will be done in one thread, this one.  The chat room will likely be opened closer to the draft itself.

 

Mod notes:

1. Please do not spoil the pick.  Sometimes, the pick is announced a little quicker on Twitter than it is shown on TV.  If you end up seeing the next pick before it is announced on television, please wait until the TV announcement so as to keep spoilers to a minimum.

 

2. There will be one reaction thread for each Colts pick.  Please don't make several threads for each selection or move the Colts make.  We will have one reaction thread for each pick and we will try to keep all reaction about that pick in the one thread.  I will do my best to make that thread as soon as possible after the pick is made.  If a few minutes go by and the thread has not been made, please feel free to make one, but I will do my best to keep on top of it.

 

Other than that, let's enjoy the evening!

I'm just waiting for the moment when we draft Keanu Neal and this whole board melts.

I am not only looking forward to the draft for obvious reasons but it also brings relief from the non stop barrage of "mock drafts" until next year! Go Colts!

I'd rather that cause it's easy for me to stay awake I just can't check at my job only on break so I'll be catching up all night

Pumped for draft to get started.  I kind of like the draft format we have now with the three days,& primetime, although my wife is not all that thrilled with it :grumpy2:    She is good though to put up with my Colts obsession & at least plays along.

Less than 2 hours left until the draft starts.  Just a reminder to keep all of tonight's discussion here and a thread will be made shortly after the Colts' selection

Almost time boys. Man I'm pumped for this draft. I feel like this draft can give the Colts the young talented core of playmakers that we've need. Last draft was the start with guys like Anderson, Smith, and Geathers. 

 

Mathis draft should all but complete the process. Man if we could get some young studs at OLB and ILB and maybe a FS we will have a strong core.

Do you think there's any chance we could get Kamalei Correa in the 2nd?

I am too. This draft has the 2nd most resources Grigs has had to work with. His first draft was as good as anyone could expect outside of Luck, and last year's looks good as well. He's done well in years where he's had a 1st and a 2nd.

If you were one of the top QB prospects in this draft, would you rather go to Philly or LA?

Easy LA plus there is a good chance some good WRs will drop to the 2nd so they could get a weapon for their new QB to put alongside Gurley

Pederson is a solid QB coach and the Eagles are/were close to a playoff spot last year.  Plus, you wouldn't have to play the defenses of Arizona and Seattle twice a year

True, the NFC East is the easier Division but I like the Rams Defense and as a QB I would love having Gurley to give the ball too + the LA weather is better.

They lost quite a few defensive players, so I'm not too convinced that they're just a QB away from the playoffs.

This year will show how good of a coach Chip Kelly is or isn't between the Eagles and 9ers.

Draft Day Thoughts

1) Glad I'm not an Eagles or Rams fan.

2) I would actually be happy with the Colts picking Zeke Elliot at #18.

3) Mel Kiper is proof that you don't need to have talent to be successful in life.

4) I've already resigned myself to the fact that Grigson is picking Dak Prescott or Cardale Jones in the 1st Round.

 

Happy Draft Day, everyone.

    • It might be a stupid question, but it's the Q he should have most expected.  The media is horrible (both Sports and Politics) and just looking for something to drive clicks, but this is a question every WR gets when he goes to a new team, especially to a team with an assumed better QB. Serious journalism is dead. Today, most Qs are just geared to get players to react badly and say something stupid.    DF should have just smiled and said "there's nothing to compare yet, next question" 
    • He is ranking players not predicting where they will be drafted. 
    • I have a feeling that Ferguson might come off the board on day one. Now I won't be shocked if he falls to the third round but you know how GMs value pass rushers. His bad workout numbers might drop him a bit and honestly he should have claimed an injury and skipped it all together. If Orlando Brown Jr had pulled that move last year I think he would have snuck into the bottom of the first round. Instead he put up historically bad combine numbers and slipped towards the end of the third round. Probably should have hired a better agent.   Ferguson's tape can be impressive at times because he is constantly in the backfield, albeit not against top level competition. He reminds me of Derek Barnett with his relentless style of play and play strength. Ferguson isn't a true technician with his hands but his hand strength is evident. I like his upside and could see him developing into a double digit sack guy in the very near future.
    • You didn’t listen to Ballard’s press conference did you?      He he said he will never force a pick to satisfy a need.    If there are two players who he has graded close then sure.    But to say he’s taking two D players with the top two picks is not going to happen if they have higher graded players at any other position
