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

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.

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.

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.

 

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 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.

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

 

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.

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

 

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

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.

    • Personally, I find the premise off the mark. I watch football to see good competition. I want to see games where the team I root for overcomes the challenges that all teams face, and they are the victor more often than not. I can certainly enjoy that just as often with a solid QB, than I can with a "franchise qb".    How sad that for some, this idea of a "franchise" QB, is the make or break point for them. (shrugs) We each get a choice. I chose to enjoy the team each and every year. Things won't start "getting good", once the "night in white" arrives. In some ways, I enjoy beating the odds. Of course winning the SB after 36 years was special, but there was no playoff run that is more dear to me than 95. We didn't quite make it, but the memory is truly wonderful. By the way, that was with a QB that man of you would not consider to be a franchise QB. This season was also very special. I see now why Mr. Rivers gave our Colts so many hard fought battles. He's go "it" between the ears. Surprised so many are quick to move on. If that guy wants another round, sign him up.   If there were say, 24-28 "franchise QB's in the league, and my team couldn't seem to get one, it would be a different story. I chose to not hang by happiness on such a low percentage reality.    Rant off, carry on. 
    • So yeah, we have a couple of years to get this thing right during this wave of talent.  We have no QB, Houston is getting old, and we have no LT.  Those are the 3 highest paid positions in football.
    • I think Moncreif had more sure hands than Pittman, but Pittman can get open better.
    • Ballard isn't sure Eason can be the backup and you want him to start?
    • Not necessarily. Houston could get that third pick and draft their own. TUA wouldn’t have to be part of the trade. There is a lot of rumors Miami might draft another QB and get rid of TUA. Or if they get Watson TUA could be on the block. TUA doesn’t seem to have any special qualities. But in saying that I do think his style could fit Reichs system.  He could sit behind rivers for a year. It seems he is having the same issue that manning had as a rookie. Has to learn what is open in the nfl compared to college.
