Indianapolis Colts trade #3 overall pick to New York Jets (merge)

Recommended Posts

we could even trade back up into the late first now.  i bet most will probably want us to use those picks, but there is always someone in the late first looking to move back

It was pretty automatic once the Jets couldn't snag any of the marquee QBs, IMO. 

 

Very good trade for the Colts!!! It would have been greedy to expect a pair of first rounders, and Ballard did the right thing, getting as much as he could to plan for the draft.

Anyone know what the point differential is now between our pick and Buffalo's 12th?

 

If we trade down with them, any chance of securing their 2nd 1st rounder?

6th overall is 1600. 12th is 1200. 21st is about 780. So 1600 to 1980.

This is why I thought some people were worrying too much about the trade value chart. 

Our 3rd pick was 2200 and we traded for a value of 2760.

That's a really good haul.  I'd be interested in seeing if anyone wants to trade up to 6.  Maybe move down 3 or 4 spots and gain another 3 or 4 picks in the process.

I kept saying you will get more when people move it on to top 3 for a QB it happens every time lol

This is a great deal. Looking like Chubb or Nelson for sure now. After that, every single pick must be BPA.

There are some Jets fans out there who think they could be taking Baker Mayfield 3rd overall.  I think that would be a huge mistake

It’ll be a run on QB aside from Cleveland 2nd pick and possibly Giants. Chubb could very well be there. Barkley probably won’t though

Maybe. Cleveland could actually end up with Barkley and Chubb which would be an impressive haul if they didn't need to nail the QB position as much as they do.

 

I really hope we haven't done this with the aim of getting Nelson. Seems like the wrong direction to me. Those 3 second round picks are going to be interesting though.

Love it!!!!!!!!! Didn’t think we could get three 2nd rounders just for moving down 3 spots!!!!

 

Hopefully either Chubb or Nelson is still available at 6. What a trade!!!

 

This is what I was hoping for with Ballard. Be able to get a haul just for moving back 3 spots and hopefully still landing an elite player!

The radio host said that the Jets Twitter account confirmed it.

Some need to slow down and think here there is no guarantee that denver takes a QB there is a huge possibility that Barkley Chubb and Nelson will all be gone so who else could be a target?

The Jets paid a premium for sure. That's the cost of drafting the QB of your choice. This will definitely change the Dynamics of the Browns strategy. They might be forced to draft the QB of their choice at 1, since now NYG and NYJ are both threats.

 

Draft just got way more interesting.

Awesome trade.   I’d rather get a stud on d with the 6th pick (fitz)  and get ol in the 2nd round.  The draft looks really deep on guards

We could also trade those second round picks. Nice move here and plenty of time for other moves.

Much rather get Chubb (if he’s still available) and Hernandez or Wynn in the second, than select Nelson over Chubb.

Tremaine Edmunds. We missed on Hitchens and at 19yo, Edmunds could run that unit for the next 15 years if he lives up to his potential.

Johnny Football was a baller...

RG3 was a baller...

Sammy Bradford was a baller...

Case Keenum was a baller...

 

 

List of ballers goes on and on. But ballin in NCAAF and the NFL aren't, unfortunately, the same thing.

 

Hope Baker has a great career, but numbers just don't support it.

If both Nelson and Chubb are gone by 6, I bet we move down with Buffalo.

 

I just hope Ballard gets it on the dotted line and faxes the paperwork to NY, dots the i-s and crosses the t-s :)

I'm not sure a few second rounders fix this team more than getting one of the elite pieces possibly available. It looks okay on paper, but there's a risk here.

So was Manziel

they are not the same type of ballers. Most of Manziel's big plays were out of structure, most of Baker's big plays are within structure and from inside the pocket. Also... Baker is not a coke head... I think.

Props to Ballard for making that trade.  His plan has to be to take Quentin Nelson at pick #6.  Ballard picked up 2 second rounders for this year and a second round pick next year.  Colts now have 3 second round picks and a total of 5 picks in the first 3 rounds.
