3 LBs gone, it’s going to be slim pickings later

 

Only 1 guard taken so far in a deep guard draft

Yeah, the run starts here.  Smart teams pick their interior lineman in the 20s.  We picked ours at 18 one year, but that was from a stupid jerk of a GM.

Titans GM is an ex-Patriot, so wanted to move ahead to get Will Hernandez???

 

Or was it for Josh Jackson?

Colts drafted a player, not a potential. There is a difference IMO.

 

All picks are potential only, unless Nelson played in the NFL already and I missed it. I agree he’s a “safer” pick. 

 

I meant the opportunity potential to possibly walk away from 2 starters from the 1st round.

So would have two Gs in the 2nd.  Its not the player, its the incremental value we're giving up.

 

There is nobody who would have advocated trading 12, 53, and 56 to move up for Nelson.  Nobody.  Be happy about the player if you want, but rationalizing the pick given alternatives makes no sense.

 

But onward to the rest of the draft. Go Colts.

Using that logic no one wouldn't take their #3 and trade it for Nelson and 3 2nd round picks.

Yeah but Nelson isn't? Just asking. Nelson will be much better than this guy.

I'll have to admit, the tapes I saw of Ragnow he moved his man downfield. 

 

The tapes I saw of Nelson, he stood his man up, and they both stood in place with hands down and chin pointed towards the air like two Sea Lions fighting for domination.  I guess looking like a Sea Lion is close to being a beast.

JFK? really your just being an * your acting like the Bucs picked #5 before the Colts and traded with Bills then you would be correct but the reality is the Colts picked right before this trade was made meaning they 100% could've gotten this trade if they wanted it. It's like saying the Giants couldn't of gotten the same offer the Colts did from the Jets for the #3 pick its beyond stupid.

No not at all. I'm simply saying you shouldnt make assumptions based on incomplete information. 

 

Side note @SteelCityColt  i found that personal shot you alluded too, see the bolded....haha

A lot of the defensive talent flying off the board, making for slim pickings in the 2nd if you need D...

 

Holding out hope for one of Josh Jackson, Mo Hurst, or Taven Bryan being available early 2nd.

I do think a good CB will be there in the 2nd.

The Jets actually traded 3 seconds to move up 3 slots.  Nobody would have been stupid enough to give up Nelson and 5 seconds to move up 9 spots.  But if the Jets were on the clock at 3 and that trade was offered, they'd take it in a second and pick Allen or Rosen at 12.

Patriots with a good pick in Isaiah Wynn. I thought he was the 3rd best lineman in the draft behind Nelson and McGlinchey.

He played left tackle for Georgia last year but many projected him to be a guard because of his size. I think he could play tackle still personally.

Again.. As a player very happy with Nelson, first world complaints and all that. But I’d have liked to possibly tske Edmunds at 12 and trade back into the 1st to snag a faller. 

 

Of course it’s just armchair talk.

I think taking Barkley, despite the obvious talent, was a luxury pick by the Giants. If you’re not taking a QB surely you’d trade?

Nelson's fine.  Stupid not to take the trade though.

If it is the Falcons, they have always mocked Taven Bryan to them. If he gets past the Ravens, Dan Quinn will probably get him. Or they could fill their OG spot with Will Hernandez since they do need an OG.

 

Ravens' Ozzie likes Bama guys (Mosley, Upshaw etc.) and Belichick moved up to get ahead of Ozzie in the first round to get Donta Hightower. So I am thinking Ravens go with Calvin Ridley???

I agree 110%.  That and the Browns taking Ward at 4 stand as too big wow moments to me anyway.  Barkley is gonna make the Giants relevant again but they arguably have more holes in the roster than we do and they have a QB that's on his last breathe as a starting QB.

If Buffalo had offered both 1sts, which the announcers said very clearly buffalo did not offer them to anyone, than I'd agree. But it's 2 late second rounders.

They certainly have as many issues on the O line and shipped their best pass rusher.

    • One of the early 3 round mocks I saw had us taking a DE in both the 1st and 2nd round lol.  https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/2021-NFL-Mock-Draft-three-rounds-college-football-Justin-Fields-Trevor-Lawrence-Micah-Parsons-150078428/   I think Houston still has a few very productive years left in the tank. Just adding Buckner will make things easier on him. Regardless, we really need someone like Turay to emerge as a 3 down guy. Even if Turay emerges and Houston is still playing well, I'd love to see us add a 1st round DE. I'm tired of 2nd round projects.   
    • Thanks. I did take a little break. There was nothing new, and was tired of reading the re-hashing of old stuff lol. Things should be starting to heat up a bit with new news, so decided to jump back in. I'm a little stir crazy, but at least the Pacers are getting ready to start the playoffs. Hoping they keep going until FB starts.   Don't have a sub anymore (Athletic), but I have looked at all those games in detail (some of the info in previous post). There are a lot of reasons we fell off. Losing Moore obviously impacted our pass D, but there was a lot more to the story. We played some very good QBs, we had other DB's injured, our O stunk (we had an atrocious number of 3 and outs), our pressure % stunk, etc.. We also got torched deep, which is not even Kenny's area. Rock was the only DB we had playing at a high level late in the year. Willis really got picked on a few games. Hooker was up and down.   The Athletic is pretty good, but they used to be a lot better. Their college coverage has really dropped off. Not a huge fan of Keefer (who wrote the article) either, but he's OK. He was just picked up by WISH (Indy's CW) which is an upgrade though to their coverage.
    • Don’t forget Johnson. We will see if Dulin’s ST abilities helps him make it over Johnson. But with Pitman and Pascal it will probably be hard for Johnson  to  make it.
    • He has a great voice. He has a vibe about him I think he is going to be s very good player. The rest of the video is hillarious.
    • Did you read the article, or did you just spin the tweet? I don't have a subscription to the athletic, but from their reputation, the article likely has more than 'surface level at best' underpinnings to their analysis. Perhaps not.   Btw, welcome back. Was starting to wonder if you were taking an extended break from the forum.
