I wouldn't mind doubling up on CB and taking another in the 3rd.  I think Rivers and Willis will be gone by then but good CBs capable of the #3 spot should still be there.   We still have nobody behind VD and Quincy Wilson, unless you want to count Butler.

 

Rashan Melvin IMO will be a good backup to both. And now, there's a semi-logjam at safety.

 

Hooker, Green, Geathers, Butler. Gonna be hard getting them all on the field at the same time.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is a solid name, guy is bound for success.  Sounds like a goofy mobsters name. 

 

Hey, Mikey "Two Toes" Maloney just got whacked by JuJu Smith-Schuster!

I've said it before, I think we go CB round 2 and 3.

I really would like to see the Colts address LB/Edge at this point.

Cordea Tankersly would be fine in the 3rd I guess, good at press coverage, but can be beaten if he doesn't execute good technique jamming receiver.  I can't see the Colts passing on one of the edge rushers if they are still there.  We really don't have anyone special backing up Simon and Sheard other than Mingo and Ayers.  At least we have Melvin AND Butler if Davis or Wilson go down.

Melvin is a solid #4.  If we can get a true young nickel in the 3rd that would make a nice CB corps.

 

Willis and Rivers are the only two players left I like at edge.  I think of Basham as more of a SAM.  Anybody else is just going to be a rotational situational guy, IMO.

 

Trading a 4th and our 3rd to move up to take Willis or Rivers would be bold.

I would imagine that in Nickel you will see Butler and Hooker at safety and Geathers at LB. Its on Green to show he belonhs on the field in some situations.

I like Willis and Rivers as well.  If Tim Williams character concerns checked out, he is a natural pass rusher.  Needs to add some weight as well.

We're all missing the obvious solution. Just sign back Mario Harvey to play CB and he'll own just like the 2013 Chargers game.

Just thinking Dan Freeney could be an option if he drops.

Looks like a run on OL has begun

The problem is that he's failed 7 drug tests, according to reports.  He can't quit.  Its a real problem, so I'd rather have a less talented but reliable OLB.  I'd like a solid nickel CB over Williams.

If Jordan Willis falls to 80- we need to get him ASAP. Then hopefully grab someone like Donta Foreman in the 4th

Saints just traded up. Word is they were looking for a pass rusher. He makes sense for them

Well I think there are too many pass rushers available in the 3rd now. But might be a run on them here. I think we may go Foreman at RB if Williams is gone.

 

Jourdan Lewis would give us potential for a top 5 secondary. He is NFL ready in the slot!

Don't disagree that is why I said "if" his character checks out and colts brass are comfortable with it.

Still seems like the 49ers are stacking up draft pick after draft pick and still getting their guy

Also it's gonna be a mid-late second for a very very early 3rd, in a deep draft.

 

If anything, New Orleans fleeced San Francisco.

    • Well....    you may watch a lot if football, but you have no idea what you’re talking about.   You never had.   If I responded to every wrong point in this post, I’d be writing for hours.   So, I’ll stick with the easy stuff to show you how wrong you are.   Andrew Luck’s last pass was not an interception.   He threw one interception in the Fiesta Bowl overtime loss to Oklahoma State.  That went to future first round pick Justin Gilbert.  OSU led the nation that year in turnovers that year with 41.  That game turned out to be one of Luck’s best in college:  27-31, 369 yards.  Nearly 90 percent completion percentage.   Stanford out gained OSU by nearly 200 yards.   Luck did not get outplayed by Brandon Weeden.  Stanford lost because we had a freshman kicker who played hurt — a torn groin muscle.  He missed two very easy field goals.  If he makes either one, Stanford wins.     Look..   if you prefer Cam Newton over Andrew Luck that’s your call.   That’s your opinion.   But let’s at least get the facts right.  And with Luck, sorry, but you get everything wrong. 
    • You sure searched for a lot of straws to defend a QB that has no better record than Brissett over the last five years.  This is  a league of what have you done for me lately, not five years ago. 
    • Everyone can have an opinion.   The world would be boring if we all thought the same.    If the NFL season happens, at least we could each have a chance to be proven correct.    My guess is we'll both just solidify our opinions.   I think Rivers will have a good season and the Colts win 10-12 games and win the division.  I think Cam will do fine with the Pats and they will win 10-12 games and win their much easier division.  
    • You sir dealt with my statements hate it or love it, you have a point.
    • No way. I am not going to defend the job that Grigs did overall...I wanted him gone much sooner than others.   But...I will point out that you are wrong about Grigs having it easy. He inherited a terrible 2-14 roster...and a lot of dead cap that first year...from Manning and having to cut other leftover vets from the Polian era (Clark, Brackett, Bullitt, Addai).   He spent what little cap space he had to re-sign both Wayne and Mathis (moves that were criticized by some at the time)...and other cheap FAs like Redding and Avery. He also traded a future pick for a young Vontae Davis before the season began. All of those players played critical roles on that massive turnaround.   That is why he won the award...not just because of that draft (which I agree is overrated in hindsight)...but because of the totality of his work that offseason...and the situation he was in. And he absolutely deserved it.   It wasn't until he cycled through that dead cap space that he started spending real money in FA. And with an elite franchise QB on a rookie deal...he absolutely should have been aggressive. Unfortunately...he just wasn't very good at evaluation...and made poor moves left and right...while dealing with some bad injury luck. Still...it got them to precipice.    When Ballard took over, he too had a really bad roster...but lots of cap flexibility. He was more prudent (probably because of unknowns about Luck, scheme, coaching, etc.). But those unknowns also meant that Ballard's first year got to be a "rebuilding year" with little expectations...and it fortuitously resulted in the #3 pick in a QB heavy draft with multiple QB needy teams. And with a franchise QB already on the roster...he had options. To his (much deserved) credit...he absolutely crushed the trade with the NYJ and (possibly) all of the picks he got from that trade. But that was a massive opportunity that very few Execs ever get.   How does that 2018 draft look IF Luck retired a year early...and Ballard has to strongly considering using that #3 pick on a QB?    Because that's essentially what Grigs had to do. Yes he got Luck...but for the purpose of roster construction...Luck just a replacement for the franchise QB that was injured and released...and he had to use his most valuable asset he would ever have...to get that replacement. Who knows what that draft (and Grigs' overall draft record) looks like if Grigs was allowed to cash in on that pick.   I am a big Ballard fan...and I am hopeful there are great things coming for this team...but if I am being objective...if anyone got off easy their first year...it was him. There are fans that place the blame for that 2017 draft class on Pagano...and then there are others that would tell you that offseason technically didn't happen...and 2018 was actually Ballard's first year.   We all know Ballard is a better GM (all aspects)...but we really can't compare him and Grigs...because they have just had different paths. And to be fair...neither has had a winning season without Luck as the starting QB that season...but Grigs actually had a 6-4 record without Luck...while Ballard is 11-21. I expect that this season will improve upon that.
