Sorry for being all over the Basham pick. Looking at these edge players has kinda been my thing. I think we got a good one.

 

I love thos draft so far. More thsn any draft since I have been a football fan.

Well, Ballard's scouts did get Spencer Ware and Knile Davis all in later rounds, didn't they?

its the quality of players that have been drafted for the colts this year. will need more data but the first 3 picks to me are true BPA. Bashem played on a bad defense but he gave 110% effort he jumps out at you. reminds me of Woodley a bit from Michigan. I really really like our 3 picks can't wait to see what else is added for the rest of the draft and as well as the UDFA.

Yeah, I'd say we double down on CB and get either Cam Sutton or Damontae Kazee at this point to bolster the CB position. The cupboard is more bare there.

FOUND THIS ON TERRELL BASHAM :.............

Quick Quote:

“…Basham has been virtually unblockable, winning with his initial quickness, bend, strong hands and a variety of pass rush moves, including a wicked spin. ” –Rob Rang

Scouting Report:

An edge pass rusher that has a lethal combination of burst, dip, and power to get into the backfield. Had an excellent week at the Senior Bowl against top competition, validating the tape that he showed against MAC competition. High mover in the draft, could emerge as one of the top pass rushers in the draft.

I knew Ballard had a plan like Justin Houston in round 3, that is what I said earlier in a post too:

 

 

 

Ballard was with the Bears when KC drafted Houston.

With our team make up i'm not putting a lot of value on the RB at this point. We have a lot of needs and need to get better and deeper across the board if we don't get a drafted RB i'm fine with that. This team isn't fixed in one draft or one offseaon but its nice to see a change happening for this franchise on another side of the ball for now.

Never would have thought that Kareem Hunt went before Marlon Mack or Donte Foreman.

Mack fumbles.  Hunt is complete.  Not sure about Foreman

Here's our current roster ratings IMO. I went slightly harsh on purpose.

Pretty realistic honestly. I'd give Luck elite and toy with the idea of Mewhort at high quality, but other than that it's about right.

If Foreman is still there in the 4th, I'd def take ASAP. Very young (only 20 right now), large hands 10.125''. Could be the bruiser that we need.

 

Edit: Bah, the Texans of all teams take him.

Foreman gone.  Too bad, was sorta hoping he might be there tomorrow.  Oh well, plenty of talent left folks!

I'm not going to say that Ballard got lucky, but every single pick was projected to go higher than what they did, by a considerable amount.

 

Or maybe picking 15th in the round makes a difference over picking 25th...ya think.

Perine, Mack, Gallman, Williams, Hill, McNichols, Pumphrey, Conner.......all still there.  The question is do the Colts want one of them?

Hopefully we come away with Jaleel Johnson, Gallman, and Anthony Walker JR tomorrow. Would make me very very happy.

Well another good night for the Colts IMHO.  I'll sleep well again knowing this defense could be better.  Looking forward to tomorrow.  LOTS of good talent still available!  Later my Colts brethren!

There are some very intriguing receivers still available. Isaiah Ford, Bucky Hodges, etc. 

 

Ton of size, speed, athleticism guys.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....
