2017 NFL Draft Day 2 Thread

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.

    • Sure it matters.  Intent always matters in any action.  Its the major difference between Murder 1 and Manslaughter, for example.
    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility.
