2018 NFL Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!    NFL Draft night is finally here.   Our Indianapolis Colts and the 31 other NFL teams will start drafting players, and the drama begins,  in the 2018 NFL Draft from AT&T Stadium right after 8:00PM Eastern Time, and through Sunday afternoon.  Cleveland Browns are on the clock, launching the 2018 NFL Draft with their #1 overall pick, in light of their 0-16, 2017 NFL Regular Season Record.

 

This year the Colts own nine draft picks, with additional picks acquired earlier, when the Colts agreed to drop down from #3, to #6 overall with the New York Jets.  Immediate needs include a defensive lineman, linebacker, offensive lineman, and wide receiver.

 

We wish Jim Irsay, General Manager Chris Ballard, Head Coach Frank Reich, and the the Colts coaching, and college scouting scouts. do their strategy from their war room during the 2018 NFL Draft.

 

GO COLTS!!!!!

Just a rumor, but I heard that Elway is threatening to go to the Yankees instead, should the Colts draft him.

Agree 100 percent.  With all of the rumored trades...it could be historic how many trades are made, haha.

Great stuff! If the Browns don't take Darnold I would be shocked.

 

We should find out soon. I hope the Vikes trade back if we don't get Wynn. Good luck to the Colts! Should be a great two nights for you fans.

I am off tonight and tomorrow. Working days on Saturday. I can still stay up tomorrow night and see who we take in Round 2 because it starts at 7 tomorrow.

I find it difficult to believe that they don't know who they are going to pick.  Why take all 10 minutes?

Last ditch efforts by a scout or two plus give a team or two a chance to trade

I really find it hard to think they would have traded #1.  #4?  Yeah, but not #1.  Just my opinion, though

    • Ok. Thanks for replying, Dave. I noticed that I had not seen you in a while. Glad to see that you are visiting the Colts forum every now and then.    All the best in your new job. 
    • Thanks for the invite but I have a new job that is presently monopolising my time!  Not only would I struggle for time in making selections but would want to be able to do a bit of research as well.   Good luck to the rest of you though!
    • The thing is, at what point are you just churning draft capital for the future and passing on genuinely needed talent? Ballard made the big trade down into the middle of the 2nd round last year in order to get a high pick in this year's 2nd round. Then he  turns around and trades that high 2nd rounder for what.....a low first rounder next year? You begin to chase your tail after a while. Grab the talent now. You can't build through the draft if you refuse to use your picks on the talent that is only going to be  available on Day 1 and early Day 2. At some point, a bunch of low 2nd rounders and 3rd rounders gets you some nice depth, but not the game changers you need. Time to go for it!
    • For the trade chart future trades are usually the equivalent of one round lower of the current draft position.  So, let's say the Colts are looking to trade back to #20, the 2021 1st round pick will have a value of the 2020 2nd round, #20 pick.  
    • If Brown and/or Kinlaw and are still on the board at #13.... I would sprint, pole vault, long jump, shot put and javelin our pick to the podium for either of them.    If they're both gone.... then if I'm Ballard.... we're open for business for a trade down.
