Any takers for Ridley in the 2nd or is it too soon after Dorset :hide:

i'd be okay with it, we need someone opposite of Hilton that is consistent.  Especially given that WR in this draft is weak and we really didn't get any help there in FA

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? 

 

I liked their pick, improves their whole team from day one,

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

yeah, i was really thinking they'd go Chubb after that trade of JPP. I then figured the Browns would grab Barkley at 4.  Honestly, I was fully expecting Nelson to go Denver. Boy was i wrong

Wow!!!

 

Saints gave up a future first for him???

Yeah, this really surprised me too. I didn't see Davenport being worth two 1st-rounders, but to each their own. I hope in a few years Indy follows the Saints model. NO has finally invested into their defense after building that monster offense. With a defensive Round 2 tomorrow, maybe we can be on our way...

So many good players falling. I am almost at the point where I want us to trade up for Harold Landry.

Guard helps protect Luck. Guard allows receivers to run routes. Guard opens up holes for RB. Offense scores points. You need points to win games.

I'd like to hear you describe more things. Very simple yet highly effective at explaining the value of G :funny::lol:

 

Btw I totally agree with you.

I think as me and @csmopar said they have issues on both sides of the trenches and while Barkley is a home run threat consistent success comes from strong lines. Throw in having a QB that’s near expired and it’s a luxury unless you plan on picking top 5 next year. Even then you could argue the QB class for 2019 is weaker.

Miami about to be screwed out of Rosen... haha

 

Good to see another person who revels in Miami's misery. I hated the Phins back during the Manning years. Glad to see them miss out on yet another QB. Hilarious

Ooo didn’t see Falcons going WR! With Jones talking about holding out that’s interesting.

I think they’ll take Mason Rudolph

 

Jackson doesn’t seem like a NE type QB.

Hot take poll then.. of the QBs taken, who starts day 1 and who has the best overall rookie year? 

i think Darnold starts.  Mayfield i think rides behind Tyrod for a few games, then takes over by week 6.

There are plenty of comparable guards in this draft... Wynn Hernandez Price Ragnow all have just as much ability as Nelson.  And 2 of those are even a better fit in our offense... We will be predominantly in zone and a zone guard doesn't have to be the best guard ever to be productive.

 

Notice how Wynn, Price and Ragnow are all gone by pick #23. I doubt Hernandez lasts much longer. I think we were all fine passing on Nelson, assuming that one of these other elite G's fell to Round 2. But with these guys going early, I sure am glad to not have missed on a blue-chip lineman. Just saying...

 

On another note, NO WAY this happens. But Harold Landry still hasn't been chosen and we're at pick #26. Surely he won't fall into our laps in Round 2... right?? :goodluck:

Allen.  He has the better team around him and a lighter division.

He automatically helps take some pressure off Eli, so they can wait a little longer for a QB imo. Going to open the field more for their talented WR’s and also help out their defense by having their offense on the field longer.

What would you take/offer for him?

being that its painfully obvious he wants traded and out of Alanta with his recent stunts and being a 29 year old WR... maybe a 3rd. possibly a 2nd

so much for him being there at pick 35 huh...

Yep, Ragnow, Price, and Wynn all gone. So if we didn't take Nelson we would've been crap out of luck.

Idk maybe they just wanted someone better than Sanu to take some attention away from Julio Jones. They did lose Taylor Gabriel in FA.

Darnold and Allen to start, Rosen and Mayfield to sit to start. 

 

Rosen in by Week 3 when Bradfield is injured.... again.

True but that’s a high investment in a WR when you already have Jones. Still they have a pretty strong roster on both sides.

    • I mean at the end of the day you have to trust your own evaluation. Who cares if he's considered a reach? Mahomes was considered a reach too... Leonard was widely considered a reach. Who cares? Do your own evaluation and if you like the guy get him. And if you don't like him don't take him only because others are supposedly high on him. When it's all said and done Ballard and the front office will be graded on their own evaluations, not on what other 10, 20 or 30 front offices and GMs thought about their moves. 
    • Good signing by Ballard. Good player at a great price. Now sign Geronimo Allison to help our WR group and I will be happy with our off season
    • If anyone wants to move up the draft to #121 pick of Las Vegas Raiders, message me.
    • Leonard and Big Q are Colts... for as long as they can sustain elite performance that their pay will command.    This is the importance of structuring the other deals well and continuing to draft well. If Buckner gets 5 years/ $21 million per, then Q and Leonard are going to stay here as well. I don’t see how Ballard could justify getting rid of them. You want top talent. You find ways to acquire it, and then you pay to retain it. Drafting is essential to proper team building with the cap space.
    • Unitas was the NFL All 50th Anniversary Team QB. Without him and the Colts 58 Overtime Championship on National TV, there probably wouldn’t be an NFL today.  So he was my vote.  Side note- Lenny Moore was also recognized on that team- yet many on here don’t even recognize him in the Colts Top Ten!?!?!?   Most ratings, prior to Brady’s success- rate Montana as by far The Best. I still rate Joe as better than a Brady.   I personally enjoy Peyton as my Favorite Person who had an NFL Career.  Not only innovative and successful, but fun-loving and Charitable.  Archie and Olivia raised a Keeper, for sure!!!
