The three players I want the most in this draft. Love, Mims, and claypool to fill the Ebron role. Add Campbell to that mix and the future is really bright. If rivers is signed he would have so many weapons to work with for a year until Love is ready.
I don’t mind Herbert but I don’t know if he has the playmaking ability of Love when things break down. He doesn’t throw with much anticipation either.
So, I relistened to the Ballard and Reich at the combine and something really stuck out to me and has made me feel that he really isn't looking at QB or WR early.
Ballard said that he did see some good guys in the QB class and that he really liked the depth of the class. That, to me, says he feels he can get a good QB later. He said the same thing about the WR.
What he didn't say was that about DL. He stated that he loves the lines and building the lines.
Now this could all be a smokescreen but it just feels like he believes he can get good players at both those positions later in the draft.
With Reich, it was how he spoke about JB, he has so much respect for him and when asked how he felt JB would respond to all the criticism this year, he stated he would would respond great next year. He went on to talk about leadership and intangibles and how you can coach and improve accuracy and field vision but you can teach a person to command a room.
Again this could all be a smokescreen and they take Love at 13, but I just don't see it.
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.
