Why doesn't it say we have the 143 pick anywhere? 

 

It does, on my CBS Sports draft tracker list.

Ballard is looking shrewd at this point . I like his style lets see what he does with these picks, and then in UDFA

Have Gallman, McNichols or Jamal White been taken yet?  Outside of those possible options  I'm not really interested in anyone else available  at running back. 

 

Looks like we might be stuck with  pretty much the same quality  of backfield as last year. That's the problem with trying to rely on finding mid to late round gems to address RB position.  Can't have it all though.

At this point, double down on CB, LB and OL depth, IMO, and get a specialist RB

With all the free agents he signed and the 8 draftees, this may be a harder than usual year for Colts' UDFA to make it.

Very happy with the move after the run of guys I like. 

 

Would have preferred moving up to get one but will never knock patience.

Good point but there always seem to be some that sneak in because of Special Teams play.

I like that our draft picks are grouped.  Can pick some players in bunches.

We could go Moe, Curly and Larryhaha

Stupid post. Extra picks are better at this point if they don't like any prospect at 121.

 

Edit: a 4th and a 5th. Yeah, that's much better than staying if they don't like any player at 121.

 

Please, quit belly-aching.

At first the tracker was just showing the 5th, not the 4th too, I think anyone would question that trade...

damonte kazee ain't a bad pick as a Nickel back. Or maybe Desmond King.

First,  Ballard made a good trade to move down in the 4th and pick up a 5th.       Well done.

 

Second,   don't be surprised if he does the exact same thing in the 5th with one of our two picks.     Move down in the round  and pick up a later 5th and a 6th to go with it.        If it's possible,   I think Ballard will want to do that.

Great pick there for the browns. 

I actually think the browns have quietly had a solid draft. At least on paper anyway...

Our picks are so far back in the 4th round that we basically now have 4 5th round picks. Hard for me to get excited much about 5th round or later picks. Lots of talent already flying off the board.

    • As I said, it's never about "can you fit under the cap?", or "do you spend all your cap space?" Because you can fit under the cap certainly. Actually, you have to, that's the rule. And most teams do spend their cap space. That's the point. Use it all if possible. The Patriots use it all usually, the Steelers use it all usually, etc. Most teams do. Actually, the Colts do use almost all of their 2019 cap space too. (The 2019 total sum of contracts is a bit over 184 million, just a few mills under the cap. That "40ish cap space" is already nothing else but the rollovers from previous years.)   But, even with spending all the cap space, there is good cap management, and there is bad cap management. The Patriots spend all of their cap space, and they manage it very effectively. The Colts (now) spend all of their (excluding rollover), and I belive Ballard manages the cap very effectively. But the Jags didn't. They went over the line, and sacrifized their future effectiveness by getting into bidding wars and signing pricey free agents one after another. The problem wasn't Norwell. If it was only him, that would be ok. The problem was, that they also signed Moncrief for 10M, Jenkins for 6M, Church for 7M, traded for Hyde and payed him 4M and he barely saw the field, etc, etc. The list is very long.      I never said that having elite talents heading into their second contract is a burden. You are right, that is a blessing. Actually, that is the best that can happen to a team. That's what Ballard want's to do! The problem is, that the Jaguars got into a situation, when there is a very good chance that they cannot sign their own guys. And their roster got thin, because they could not refill it this offseason enough. They got worse. And they will become even worse in 2020, because they won't be able to retain their talent level. Yes, they can cut Campbell, they can cut Bouye, and they can trade Ngakogue, and fit under the cap. And then? Who will play at CB, who will play at DE? A mediocre somebody. So, instead of improving their team, they actually made it worse. That's the bad management. Cap wise and talent wise as well. (However, I do agree, that they kinda draft OK recently - one year exceptionally well, but still OK since then, so their talent infusion is somewhat OK. What they screwed up big time is cap management.)   Btw, this is an old story repeating itself. Coughlin has been with the Jags before. And he drove them into cap hell before. It was bad, it cost them years to recover. He's just doing it all over again. He is (was) a very good coach, but terrible at managing the cap.
    • https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/colts-say-no-trade-offers-sticking-jacoby-brissett-backup?fbclid=IwAR0IGDgC2r_pBbt7tUzbQjxiBv0zfXiUyxQtxziGhcsvuaRHI3Or6xVIT74   I like Reich's quotes here:  “It’s impossible for me to have a higher opinion of Jacoby than I do,” Reich says. “I said it last year, I think he’s a top 20 quarterback. I still say that. After watching him for a year, this guy’s really good.   “I tell Chris all the time, ‘Please don’t let him go. I don’t care what anybody offers him. Don’t let him go.’ I love Jacoby. The problem is now I’ve gotten to know Jacoby and, at some point, I hope that it works out for Jacoby. But not now.”
    • How is the number of UDFAs significant to anything?     For the record, the Colts actually signed 11 UDFAs...JAC signed 21.    BTW, here are some of the "better teams" and the number of UDFAs this year:   HOU - 20 KC - 23 CHI - 22 NO -17 LAR - 19 LAC - 19   I see no clear correlation between "better teams", thin rosters and UDFAs. There is more of a correlation between the number of draft picks and UDFAs, if anything. Those teams typically had less draft picks...and therefore...more roster spots to give to UDFAs. And UDFAs understand this as well...and see a better path to making a roster if a draft pick is not in their way.   In 2018, the Colts...in the first year of a new offensive and defensive scheme...coming off a 4-win season...signed only 10 UDFAs...because they had 11 draft picks...which makes sense. But that roster was by no means deep.  
    • I suspect, knowing Ballard to date, he is a guy who knew all about all the candidates including Reich, but I think @Valpo2004 did a good job breaking it down.
