They seemed like 5th and 6th round players.

 

Remember that the first 4th rounder was 2nd to last pick of regular 4th round and the other two were at the bottom of the compensatory picks. So these are pretty much top of the 5th round picks. I think Mack was pretty good value... no ? The other 2 , I have no idea.

This draft was too deep at running back for us to come away with a guy like Mack. Very disappointing.  Oh well can't have it all.  We will be looking for a running back again next year. Hopefully it will be more of a priority. At least we still have Gore for this upcoming year and the backup from Seattle.

TE's are almost gone, except Bucky.

 

There has to be a reason both Desmond King and Bucky Hodges are both dropping

 

I'd say Anthony Walker Jr. and Bucky Hodges and call it a day

I though he could have taken a TE with the last pick, Steward would have been there in the 5th for us.

What in the world is happening to Desmond King? Wasn't he an early-2nd pick just a month or so back?

 

Would love to see him in the Nickel role. Still think he has potential to be a strong #2 in the future.

I don't think Hodges is going to be there...but I hope he is. For all the love that Ballard gave the TEs in this draft, he passed on drafting a good one when he had the chance.

They seemed like late 5th or 6th round players.  There are/were decent CBs, TEs, and LBs on the board when they were drafted.  JMO.

Bucky Hodges and Anthony Walker Jr. would be a good round 5 for us

 

Channing Stribling, CB, Michigan is an intriguing prospect though. They must be happy with Melvin filling in on the outside for depth.

Mack can be a game breaker not to mention will be a durable RB. Mutidimensional

His only problem is fumbles. If he fixes that, he has potential to be very good

Mack was ranked the 9th best RB by CBS, just behind Foreman.  Guys like Gallman, Williams, Pumphrey were ranked behind him and they were already gone.  I would tend to agree.

Agreed.

 

He doesn't need to come in be the feature back for the future. His speed adds another dimension that this offense needs. Hopefully he can give the Colts what they hoped Ferguson would last season.

Draft one more CB and bring in more DB's UDFA.   

 

I like Walker!!

We still don't have a slot CB.  Butler is a FS

That would be a very good 5th round.

Given what Ballard said about turnovers and extra possessions, it surprised me that he would take a RB with such striking ball security issues.

I really know so little about the 3 guys we took in the 4th. So I can't debate it

this year we did not need a starting running back. next year Saquon Barkley will be our main focus now that we have done a great job building up our defense

It's something that can be worked on though.  It's not a measurable like height, speed, etc.  It's not a vision problem either.  Just securing the ball.

Butler WANTS to be a safety. Will likely remain slot per IndyStar AM.

Very respected scout

 

Emory Hunt is a small schools scout that is indeed very well respected.
