New Mock (With Trade Back Into 1St)

Recommended Posts

1st- QB Andrew Luck (Gives us a guy who will start from day 1 with Arians tutoring him, and he should have success just like Cam Newton did right away.)

2nd- Indy trades RB Joe Addai and their 34th overall pick to Cincy for their 21st overall pick. (Cincy needs a RB to replace Benson, and Addai can help towards that while being not too expensive. Plus Cincy has two 1st round picks so they wouldnt mind trading down a little and getting an extra 2nd.)

-Indy selects S Mark Barron (The clear cut best safety prospect in the draft gives us a great safety tandem in Bethea and Barron. Getting Barron will allow us to cut Bullitt and free up cap space there, plus Barron would allow Bethea to play the Ed Reed role and rome the secondary making plays. Plus being an ex secondary coach, Pagano will want a strong secondary.) -I would take NT Dontari Poe but I have a feeling he may go top 15 since he will rise up draft boards to due his upside.

3rd- NT Alameda Ta'amu (He falls a little since he didnt have a great performance in the Baylor Bowl game, but Pagano and the DC can work with him to maximize his potential.) Alternative picks- NT Josh Chapman, RB Lamar Miller, TE Coby Fleener

4th- CB Leonard Johnson (Pagano continues to work on the secondary, and gives us a talented kid who could start opposite Powers.)

5th- TE Ladarius Green (A raw, but talented TE who has great size and athletism.)

Rest of draft - BPA

Also I have us signing Free Agent OG Carl Nicks so we dont have to focus much on the OL in the draft.

This would work especially with your FA aquisition of Nicks for guard. The only problem is that Johnson will probably be going in the 2nd round. Mike Maock of NFL Channel has him rated as the 4th CB in the draft. If the draft goes as the mocks that I have seen is predicting, then Johnson will go in the 2nd round. IMO this draft with our #1 being Luck, will be Offense heavy/ Defense light.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
