First choice is Allen, but he will not likely be there. Let's pretend he is off the board. 

 

Tampa is a good trade suitor for us because they need a corner, safety, offensive tackle, outside linebacker, running back., and receiver. 

 

I would make a deal with Tampa and then take Lamp at #19.

If Allen had a clean bill of health, it would be a no-brainer for me. Although not a popular choice, I`d go with Jabrill Peppers. He`s starting to grow on me a bit. Colts lack playmakers and he`s going to excel somewhere on the field no doubt.

Is Jonathan Allen really expected to be there at 15? I'd be shocked if he was.

 

Disregarding Allen I would go with Barnett or Lamp but I bet CB would go with Conley.

It's a Fanspeak mock..so take it with a grain of salt...but that being said it's what came up. I thought it would be pretty sweet if it was real.

In all seriousness, I'm running over people to turn in the card with Jonathan Allen's name on it.

You're..lol...spelling is literally the least important thing in my life :)

Tempted by Allen, but I'm taking Conley.  Need a hit in round 1, and not willing to take an injury risk.  If my team doctors tell me it's a non-issue, however, I'm taking Allen.

Jonathan Allen. Hardly even a question. He's a top 3 player.

 

Takk, Reddick, Humphrey or Jarrad Davis are all alternative options if available.

I've seen several draft analysts that expect Allen to fall to around 12-17 because of shoulder issues. So I can completely see this scenario happening. And yes, we should take him if he's there.

Those would both be so divisive they'd blow up this forum!   

 

Not saying either of you are wrong, I love both guys.  But that Ballard honeymoon would end April 27th for about half of this forum!  It would be hilarious!

Hey, if we could trade down 4 spots, get Forrest Lamp, and also get an extra 3rd, I'd be all over that. If we drafted Peppers at 15 though, I'd be throwing a huge fit, one like the Colts forum hasn't seen since Peyton Manning didn't play in 2011!

Alan if he's clean. Conley is next on the list.

These two are far and above anybody else left on this list.
OJ Howard would be a luxury pick.

First choice Allen, 2nd choice Barnett

My thoughts exactly.

What would I do?

 

First, I would answer the non-stop calls from some number with a 201 area code. And then I would put them on hold...while I answered a call from Englewood, CO.

But seriously...

 

If Howard is available at our pick, and I am able to ignore the Siren song of picking him, I should have no problem getting something good value out of a trade back. The NYG are built to win a Super Bowl and getting a premier TE like Howard could be the missing piece for the upcoming two-year window. If they want Howard, they are going to have to jump at least DEN...but most likely they will have to jump TB and TEN as well. 

 

If not a TE (since they have OBJ, Marshall and Shepard), the NYG could see a stud RB as the missing piece...and Cook and McCaffrey are the two left on the board. They could play it out and see if one or both are available. But with BAL, WAS and TB possibly targeting them (not to mention another team behind them trading up)...that's too risky. So they just move up and get the guy they truly want. 

 

It plays out like this. The NYG call and offer me their 3rd and 4th round picks (the latter which is now at the end of the round 4 comp picks). Not bad, but not great. DEN, who wants (and needs) a TE and probably has Howard #1 on their board, is on the other line. They say they will beat that and offer me their original 3rd and 4ht round picks. Much better deal. Thinking I probably can't do any better, I get back on the phone with the NYG to let them down gently. But just as I am about to hang up they offer their second round pick AND their 4th round pick.

 

Then I sit back and take McDowell...and have seven picks in the 46-144 range to grab a couple DBs, a couple pass rushers, an ILB, a RB and a TE.
