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 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

    • Also I want to note something else.     I don't think the talent around him should be used against Fromm.  Tua is on a loaded team and so is Trevor Laurence who everyone has already crowded as the #1 pick in 2021.     Shoot Tua has 3 receivers who are projected to go in the 1st round.     And quite frankly Burrow's team probably isn't lacking for talent either.  If you want to hold the abilities of his teammates against Fromm I think you should hold it against those others as well.     My biggest worry with Fromm is that he doesn't have the zip to put it in tight windows.     Tua there is actually a little concern about arm strength but the bigger worry is if he's going to survive in the NFL.  Dude has had a lot of injuries for a QB playing behind an Alabama OL.  On top of that he's also on the small side which helps lead to the impression that those injuries are more than just bad luck.  
    • I actually don't think so.  I think with the success of Lamar Jackson (and the NFL being a copycat league), some team will overdraft him and probably take him the first round.
    • I wouldn't support it. Brady has sharply declined. Give me Rivers in a one-year deal. Better version of Brady at this point.
    • Based on his game by game stats here are my impressions.     He folded against some of the better teams.  I understand he doesn't have the talent around him to pull out a win in these games, but I expect a good future NFL QB to have a decent game where he would at least post a stat line that would show that they are alone willing the offense to moving.   Just doesn't happen.     Against LSU - 15/30 for 130 yards 0 TD's 3 INT's   Again I get that he probably had to play hero ball here but I would like to see some hero ball that is actually successful   Against BYU   29/49 394 yds 1 TD 3 INT   His team was down only by 7 at the half.   So you can't excuse his 3 picks on him having to force things.  He chose to force things.    On top of that in games that are competitive.   Against Wake forest.  A game that I will note Utah State was leading at the half  (No excuses)   33/48 416 yds, 3 TD's and 3 Int's.  Given that this was a 3 point game his int's probably cost his team the game here.     On top of that he had an RB that had 141 yards on 19 attempts for 7.1 yds/carry.     Against Nevada which they won handily.     13/31 169 yards 1 TD 1 Int.  In this game he had 2 RB's over 8 yards per carry, another at 6.2 yards per carry, Defense chipped in 2 Int's and he had a kick return for a TD.   Who the heck throws 31 times with your run game and defense destroying them like this?     To be fair towards the end of the season and the bowl game he had some pretty strong games.   But I don't think I can look at this and say "he was on a bad team".  To me the best construction I can put on this is a guy who started believing his own hype, called his own number far more often than he should and endangered the ball far more than he should have in order to impress the scouts.   To be fair if that is the case it can be corrected and it does seem like he might have done that late in the season, in fact he has some statistically solid to good games towards the end of the season after his team was destroyed by BYU.   But at the same time at the beginning of the season he never seemed to lift his team to victory and based on the stats it seems like he might have called his own number or forced some things that actually cost his team the victory.   This does raise questions about his maturity which I think he has to answer.        
    • I 100% agree, and I see the Chargers being the winners if they want him.  Makes sense, his family is there, they already have a home in LA I believe, and he get to prove he was great even without BB.. (the last part be harder to prove at his age.. now 5 years ago yes.. lol)
