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.

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
