If the Jets really only want a 4th for Richardson, take it. All day. On top form he is worth a 1st.

Agreed

I disagree.

 

A trade would most likely be contingent on a new contract being worked out for Richardson and he wants big DT money.

 

He's also 1 failed drug test away from a year suspension. A week after his 4 game suspension was announced, he was oulled over for racing at over 140 mph, with a kid in the car, guns on the floorboard, and his car reeking of weed.

 

That tells me he's quite likely to fail another drug test, so we'd have a large portion of cap space being taken up by a guy that is suspended for a year and lost a draft pick in the process.

 

I don't think it's worth losing draft capital. I also don't think it matches up with Ballard's FA philosophy thus far.

That can always play a part, but my biggest issue is that within a week of his suspension for failng a drug test due to smoking pot being announced, he made the decision to drive like an * with a kid in the car, guns in said car just laying on the floorboard, and reeking of weed, which means him and his friend with him were smoking weed in a car, with a kid. If that doesn't spell out insanely poor judgement, I don't know what does.

If he picks a bust and/or the team falters next year he could be labeled as a bad GM

 

Na... I would disagree.  He is highly regarded as of now and he is going to make a mistake during this draft, maybe even tonight, hope not but it could be.  He won't be held accountable until a few drafts with bad decisions have passed.... or if he brings Trent Richardson out of retirement... that might do it, lol.

B/R is reporting that the Bucs, Jets and Chargers are trying to trade up for the 33rd Pick

I'm sure plenty of teams have made that call since last night

Meh, while I admit I gave Grigs the benefit of the doubt for way too long, the more informed, and or more skeptical posters around here had Grigs sniffed out pretty early on...

Grigson IMO wasn't as bad as some say, but he wasn't good either. He was just average IMO.

Yeah, Good or bad is somewhat subjective especially for fans not privy to how he influenced the overall environment around the team, which one could argue was or has been as much of a contributing factor to the teams slide over the past few seasons as the lack of top tier talent being brought in...

 

That was the thing with Grigson every now & then he'd find the undiscovered or overlooked gem but Grigson also repeatedly blew the rather obvious pick...

 

But just looking at his draft record, it's not good at all...

Final colts prediction for round 2. Colts select Derek Rivers from Youngstown State. Mathis passes the torch from one uber athletic small school pass rusher to the next.

    • I love, LOVE The Gauntlet!   One of my favorite Combine drills.  Reveals so much in a short amount of time. 
    • Fair enough, that's your take. For me, I take Lamb or Jeudy. This team has not had a true #1 receiver since Harrison and where TY has been great, I always viewed him as a WR1a or WR2. The unfortunate part of the Colts team was that TY was/is our defacto WR1. Guys like Lamb and Jeudy don't come around a lot, Lamb will be a difference maker wherever he goes. May not matter for the Colts as the Cards may grab this kid before we get a shot, but it's an interesting dilemma that faces this Colts team this year where the strategy moving forward is the true mystery here.  The wide receiver core in FA, outside of Cooper doesn't look that fruitful. I only hope the Colts don't go back to trying to take one of these WRs in late 2nd or beyond from a "deep pool" only to end up Fountain and Cain all over again. 
    • Nothing wrong with not being sold on these guys. That’s the idea. It’s projection. But you have to at least be sold on the idea that based on their traits and the fit with our scheme, that these are two guys who would fit here.    Plus if you’re not sold on these two guys who both have unbelievable traits, you won’t be sold on anyone. Like I said, next year the top two QBs may not come out and their both likely to be top 5 locks. Newman is still an unknown. And even looking beyond that, is anyone excited about the idea of Kyle Trask, Bo Nix, or Kellen Mond?   This is basically the best time for the Colts to draft a QB. 
    • I’m not typically a fan of CBS Sports prospect rankings.   I scrolled down and didn’t see anything too terrible until after pick 50.      Saw a bunch of names that I think should be much higher.    Glad to see my man Chad72 using my Mantra...   32 different teams...   32 different boards.   
    • I want the QB. A few reasons why.   1) Yes, the QB could bust. So could any other player at any other position. No one is bust proof. And eventually you have to draft a guy that you can build around; at least, that's my preference, as opposed to trying to build around a mid tier guy like Carr or Mariota, or making a run at someone like Stafford or Rivers.   2) QB play directly affects your ability to win games, to a far greater degree than any other single position. You mentioned Hopkins, and while he was great and productive even with below average journeyman QBs, the Texans didn't win games consistently without good QB play. Matt Schaub wasn't great, but he had some good production and decent efficiency for them. Also, Schaub only played with Hopkins for eight games in 2013, and they went 2-6. The Keenum took over and they went 0-8. Andre Johnson was also still there, and still highly productive, yet they didn't win games. You need at least reasonably good QB play to win games consistently.   3) Brady and Luck's ability to make JAGs look good is overstated. Those QBs showed an ability to remain productive despite having underwhelming second and third receivers, but that's because they relied heavily on pretty good/great #1 options, and had good TE play. When Luck had 40 TDs in 2014, it was TY, Fleener and Allen combining for 23 TD catches; in 2018, it was TY and Ebron. For Brady, it's been Edelman and Gronk. It's not great QB + scrubs equals productive passing game. It's great QB + 1-2 really good receiving options.   So comparatively, while a rookie isn't going to necessarily elevate the play of everyone around him right away, no matter who the QB is, you need more offensive weapons. Or at least, better/more consistent play out of the weapons you have.   4) You can take Herbert or Love in the first, and sign a good veteran WR, draft a TE, (or some other combo/configuration) and continue to develop the guys we have. And you still have TY, Doyle, a really good OL, and a pretty good stable/rotation of backs. Not a bunch of JAGs, especially if healthy, but yes, in need of some improvement from 2019.    5) Bonus -- Not to make this about JB, but I think the entire offense suffered from inadequate QB play at times last season. Goes back to #2.   But for me, the biggest question mark is the QB. I don't believe JB can be the guy, we need someone better, and I'd prefer to find the guy this franchise can build around for the next decade-plus.
