Great draft, but unrealistic. No way Smith or LVE last that long. Both are first round picks. Has Brown really fallen that far? A month ago, he was talked about as a first round pick.

Round 1 Pick 6:  Nelson, Quenton, OG, Notre Dame (A)
Round 2 Pick 4: 
 Evans, Rashaan, OLB/ILB, Alabama (B+)
Round 2 Pick 5:

I would very happy to get a draft like this. With Chubb we get a premier pass rusher, LVE is a good to potentially great MLB, Price is a solid guard, Davis and Green shore up defense, Penny and Scott should contribute. What do you guys think?

Here's my dream scenario draft for the Colts...

 

Ballard trades 6th overall pick to Buffalo for their 12th, 22nd overall picks, their 96th overall pick, and 2019 2nd round pick

 

Round 1 Pick 12 (BUF):  Smith, Roquan, ILB/OLB, Georgia 
Round 1 Pick 22 (BUF):  Bryan, Taven, DT, Florida
Round 2 Pick 4:  Hernandez, Will, OG, Texas-El Paso
Round 2 Pick 5:  Carter, Lorenzo, DE/OLB, Georgia

Round 2 Pick 17:  Davis, Carlton, CB, Auburn
Round 3 Pick 3:  Penny, Rashaad, RB, San Diego State 
Round 3 Pick 36 (BUF):  Gallup, Michael, WR, Colorado State 
Round 4 Pick 4:  Leonard, Darius, OLB/ILB, South Carolina State
Round 5 Pick 3:  Parker, Brandon, OT, North Carolina AT
Round 6 Pick 4:  Wilson, Cedrick, WR, Boise State 
Round 7 Pick 3:  Nickerson, Parry, CB, Tulane 

 

Analysis for 2018 season - Ballard gets help all over the roster with this draft. He gets impact LBs in Roquan Smith and Darius Leonard, an impact pass rushing DT in Taven Bryan, a potential great OG in Hernandez, a pass rusher in Lorenzo Carter with a very high ceiling, a talented and lengthy corner in Davis to play opposite Wilson, a talented RB in Penny to split carries with Mack, an underrated WR in Gallup who I compare to a poor man's Anquan Boldin, an underrated RT prospect in Parker, and depth at WR and CB in getting Cedrick Wilson and Parry Nickerson.  

 

Analysis for 2019 Draft - Ballard now has the following draft picks to play with: 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Ballard has another draft where he can continue to replenish the roster with young talented players with the 2018 and 2019 drafts.

    • Good point.  I think this has serious merit 
    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
    • I'm an Iowa fan but I'd kind of like to see Michigan win that game so that it can maybe move back towards the appearance of a real rivalry.     That is unless an Ohio State victory would somehow help Iowa, in that situation I would root for the Buckeyes.
