Wouldn't this be awesome? Dream Draft Scenarios...

Recommended Posts

Pre-Draft

- Cousins sign with Vikings. Leaving Broncos, Jets, Cardinals, Bills & Browns all looking for QBs...

 

First Round

- Browns panic and think they can't take Saquon Barkley RB - with #4 and select him #1 overall.

- Giants, with Barkley already selected, take Josh Rosen - QB.

- Now Colts are on the clock with Darnold & Allen are both available... We trade with the Jets who give us their #1 & #2 picks this year, & a pick next year.

- Jets take Sam Darnold - QB

- Brown take Josh Allen - QB

- Broncos take Minkah Fitzpatrick - CB

- Colts take Bradley Chubb - DE

 

Second Round - Colts now have 2 picks in the second round #36, & #37 (from Jets)

#36 - Will Hernandez  - Guard

#37 - Leighton Vander Esch - LB

 

Round 3

Jaire Alexander - CB

(Probably will get snatched up in the second round by somebody, but it is possible).

 

Round 4

Royce Freeman - RB

(His college dropoff in production was due to injury. His running style would complement Mack's.)

In that scenario, I bet the Colts can get an extra day two pick at least. 

 

But if the Colts are at #6 both Chubb and Minkah are available at #5, I will do a happy dance.

Yes......

 

This would indeed be the dream scenario....

 

So good, I'd probably wet my pants!         :beg:    (What?  Too much?)

 

We can only hope and pray!     From your lips to God's ears.....

Hernandez and Vander Esch could be gone, but on several "big boards" these guys are typically not above #40 and we would be picking 36, 37 in this scenario.

Although, PFF does have both Hernandez and Vander Esch ranked more highly...

Browns will probably just take Barkley at 1 though and select a QB at spot 4.

If they plan to draft a QB the logical thing to do would be use the number 1 pick and make sure they get who they want. If they wait until the 4th pick it's possible 3 could be gone.

Really doesn't seem to matter. If the Browns (Jets too) used every pick they have  for QBs, they probably all be flops.

I would take Nelson before I take Minkah --no contest

Math isn't my strongest subject but if the Browns hold the 1st and 4th picks and decide to pass at QB at the 1 spot wouldn't there only 2 players picked before they're up again?  Would still leave them with at least one of either Allen/Darnold/Rousen.(or Mayfield if you're a believer).  For a group that hasn't really separated from each other I would say picking their top rank player @ 1 and wait until 4 to address QB is what would be best for that organization.

Trade Luck to Cleveland for their 1st and 4th picks.

 

Colts would have picks 1, 3 and 4!!!

 

That is the ultimate scenario:coltshorse:

take Barkley at #3, Nelson slips to the middle of the 1st, Colts trade up from 2nd round and take Nelson.

 

It is an extreme long shot... but I hope your dream comes true

Browns will Take Barkley @ #1.  There'e little difference between Allen, Darnold and Rosen--they'll just take the one left over.  That way they end up with the best RB and an equal best QB in the draft.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
