"Official" offseason prediction

Recommended Posts

I know it's too early to say, and it'd be rude for a non-admin to create an ***official*** thread, but I figure, we can use 1 thread to last us from now until the combine at the very least.

 

Here's mine based on Fanspeak - probably unrealistic and full of holes, but I figure, the simulator's full of holes for every team, not just us so it somewhat evens out.

 

FA - - - - -

Cut: Arthur Jones, Ny'Quil Jackson

Re-sign: Walden, Butler, Doyle, Turbin, Adams (cheap 1 year)

Re-structure: George Costanza

Extend: Mewhort, possibly Moncrief

Sign: Brandon Williams, Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins, Zach Brown, Johnathan Banks.

 

Draft - - - - -

1 - Derek Barnett (3-4 OLB)

2 - Takkarist McKinley (3-4 OLB)

3 - Kendal Beckwith (ILB)

4 - Quincy Wilson (CB)

4 - TJ Watt (LB)

5 - Brian Hill (RB)

6 - Ryan Glaslow (3-4 DE)

 

Of course, alot of this hinges on the combine. e.g. if Myles Garrett shows up with a 5.50 40-yard dash, he'll go UDFA, so there's no telling who would rise and fall. Would anyone have guessed that Scooby Wright would have been a 7th rounder last year?

 

We definitely have the cap room now with Luck's deal out of the way; it's just time for us to use them on impact players, instead of signing a dozen veterans past their prime.

This would be a dream offseason, but very do-able. Perhaps replace a few players with others; e.g. Chandler Jones with Melvin Ingram, Jamie Collins with Donta Hightower, etc.

1. Colts fire Chuck Pagano and bring in Mike Shannahan

 

2 Colts Cut/Don't Re-sign

-D'Qwell Jackson

-Mike Adams

-Arthur Jones

-Zach Kerr

-Josh Mcnary

-Patrick Robinson

-Erik Walden

-Trent Cole

 

3. Colts Sign

 

-Melvin Ingram, OLB

-Stephon Gilmore, CB

 

4. Colts Draft

 

R1: Dalvin Cook, RB FSU

R2: Demarcus Walker, Edge FSU

R3: Anthony Walker, ILB NW

R4: Cam Sutton, CB Tennessee 

R4: Jalen Reeves-Maybin, LB Tenn.

R5: Montravius Adams, NT Auburn

R6: Marlon Mack, RB USF

 

Colts end up with a solid core of young LBs with Morrison, Jackson, Walker, and Maybin. Let them all compete in camp. But Walker and Maybin both have coverage skills. Morrison can be a 3rd and short/goal line LB. Walker starts at OLB next to Ingram. Adams challenges Parry at NT and provides depth since Kerr will be gone.

 

Also this is preliminary. I still have to watch some tape and the Combine, Senior Bowl, etc... may raise or lower some stock.

Need more FA moves; cap space is useless if it's just being hoarded for the annual "wait till next year" announcement.

We shouldn't take a rb in the first. And Anthony walker Jr probably won't be available in the third.

This would be a bomb-diggity off-season... I don't know if we can realistically sign all of those high profile FAs and I might switch some names around in the draft, but I really like it. 

 

That team is a contender, for sure.

Derek seems like he could be something special but will the Colts have an opportunity to get him???

Colts have a lot of pressing needs, CB opposite of Davis, ILB, NT, WR, RB, will they/or could they actually move up to take an elite pass rusher if ones not available @ 14-15???  Or will they go with next best player available?

    • I would think about giving them the #34 which is a good trade for both teams, then if we do draft a WR at 26 that would make sense.
    • I think you offer them #34 and that's it......  maybe add the compensation 4th rounder.  You'd absolutely have to be happy with netting Q. Nelson, Frank Clark (and a big contract) Braden Smith, and Kemoko Turay and Jordan Willis (last 22 from trading jets #52 pick   All for moving from 3 to 6 last year......   Don't know if someone will beat an offer of #34 and second 4th rounder...... but I'd absolutely throw it on the table and see.  Clark is an awesome talent at a near impossible position to fill via trade.... he's 25, produced at a high level, very healthy over his career.... not a big locker room issue.  Those are the guys you hope to draft so you CAN pay them big money to keep....  so I view the big contract as a given, a necessary evil.  The Colts dream of having a DE that is good enough to necessitate a huge contract, here is one, go get him.
    • Well, I appreciate you straightening out the information.  That still isn't the number of possible schedules, it's just the number they created based on the financial needs mixed with the venue availability issues and other stuff.   There are some horrendous schedules for certain teams out there.  Whatever human intervention took place, they clearly didn't care about screwing teams.  Oakland and Tampa got it the worst and it was needless.  But money is all that matters, not the health of the players or fairness of competition.  That much is clear.  
    • I didn't suggest anything. I'm just saying that by applying you logic to everyone on the roster, we shouldn't need to upgrade anything. Or does that just hold true to WR?
    • Simple.  It means we need to continue to look elsewhere for someone ready to play out of the box.  Someone who shines, even if its just as a rookie.  I would suggest the draft and we hope that Cain's brief spark before injury was more than fools gold.  Johnson and Paschal had brief moments where they appeared capable but certainly were far from Elite talent.  Rogers and the rest of the guys on the roster after Hilton and Funchess seem like cannon fodder for the most part.  We need elite talent.  We need elite speed.  We need elite hands.  We need elite route running.  In essence, we need SOMETHING to be elite about our qualified #2 and #3.  I didn't see anything that suggested "Elite" from any of these guys last year.  Did you? Someone will be #2 even if they're terrible.  There WILL be a #2.  What I think most people hope for is that the #2 has something elite, if not many things elite about their skill set.  Outside of Hilton, that isn't a word that applies to the backups from last year and camp bodies.     Are you going on the record to say we have our full time, long term #2 and eventual #1 when Hilton is gone on the roster?  Who would that be?  And no matter how you answer, using your criteria, what supposed practical value is that supposed to have?     What practical value does my opinion have? At least the same value as any opinion you or anyone else shares.  None of us have power over the team.  The point of a message board is to post opinions and discuss.  You apparently disagree with my statement, so let's hear who our #2 elite talent is among the scrubs? Settling for a #2 without elite talent is what we did last year.  Ryan Grant was devoid of anything elite and it showed.     Questions?
