He didn't lose me, I think it's the best point in the post. I've said it too. If the team is bad or mediocre again next year and the QB situation is unresolved, the fan base is going to clamor, articles will be written laying out the missed picks, the overall record of the Ballard era ect..
Not saying I'll be on board because I think Ballard is in a unique situation, but this is an easy prediction on some level.
This is very basic. Pretend the Colts have zero needs other than depth. Got it? Zero.
I invite you to select....in order, the top five talents in the draft that you want on the team. Remember, need has nothing to do with this exercise.
This is about making a top 5 big board, of your ranking of impact players as if you were a scouting agency who represents no team. (Selecting a QB #1, is saying that is the most talented/impactful player in this draft)
