If Ballard pulls this off he's a GENIUS!

I take it you agree 

Yeah but I think it's HIGHLY unlikely to happen.  Seems to me that mock has several trade ups into the top 10, I dont think that happens.  I'm not a huge Barkley fan, I think he's over hyped but taking him at 11 is much better than 3 or 6 in my book.

Have to say, I can't wait for the draft now, feels like this year there are so many permutations and implications of the choices being made.  This is the first I have seen of the Colts trading back and still getting Barkley and, although unlikely, still very interesting.

 

Not sure if my exuberance is because we are so high up the pecking order this year and usually we are just waiting to see what is left but this could be one for the ages!

Getting Miami's 2019 first rounder AND Barkley would be pretty nice, considering Miami will likely be picking in the top 5 next year, but I'd chalk it up to getting a little bit lucky more than "genius," because there's no way that Ballard can know with 100% confidence that Saquon would still be there at 11.

Unless pictures surface of Barkley frolicking with Dennis Rodman while wearing one of those pot-smoking gas masks... he ain't falling out of the Top 10.

Yep, CB's genius has nothing to do with him per say. But rather what other teams do...

    • After how well Cain and Fountain emerged...I sure hope not.    Teams are pretty damn good at scouting WRs...and they still miss on a bunch of them. Late-round WRs, specifically, fail to make a true impact at a very high rate. Just look at how many late-round WRs and UDFAs enter the league each year...that you never really hear from again.    Pascal made it...but he is also unique in that way...and not unique in that he has very visible limitations as a WR.   I suppose there's a chance that the Colts found the diamond in the rough...but the odds are seriously against it. That's not to say that Patmon isn't a decent WR...but it's a huge leap to the NFL. Very good chance he's a JAG. If he ends up with 200-300 yards in a season...that will be a good accomplishment for him.      
    • To actually answer this...if he stays healthy...   63% completion rate, 3,900 - 4,100 yards, 24 TDs, 12 INTs, 91 Passer Rating, 59 QBR
    • It's an interesting thought exercise. But I really think that condition exists because of the injury history. As long as Wentz is healthy, I couldn't even imagine how they would spin the optics of benching him prior to reaching that threshold. They certainly didn't bench JB when it was clear he wasn't able to get the job done. The reason was because he gave them their best chance to win (or so they said).   And unless they get a legit backup QB...that's definitely going to be the case with Wenz.   What message does that send to the locker room and fanbase other than "we care more about a 1st round draft picks than we do about Carson Wentz and about winning." I can't imagine that going over well in the locker room...especially if these guys are truly bonding.   And if Wentz somehow doesn't give them the best chance to win at that point...then they would have major egg on their faces for even making that trade.  
    • That's weird comment...   Anyway, given all are healthy the 5th or 6th guy better be good on STs because he's not going to get a lot of reps in a game.  Heck Patmon hardly put on his uniform last year.  He looks the part but so do a lot of others that have come and gone.
