Poor Perspective guys, we took our #3 and got Nelson and 3 2nd Round picks you are crazy if you don't think that is outstanding value.

Wow.  Last year CB picks an overrated safety, now this year an overrated G.  Ballard is worse than Grigson.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

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:

 

Good point!  Boy color me surprised that guards were taken over the edge and corners.  No way I could have seen that happening.

What did we lose? You can't lose something you don't have?!? If anything, be upset cause we traded back from 3 when we could have had Chubb

 

Colts fans would be much more excited now if that Jets trade happened tonight, rather than a month ago. Imagine the excitement if, a few hours ago, this happened live:

 

Colts on the clock (pick #3): "WE HAVE A TRADE!!"

 

Colts fans everywhere: WUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT

 

50% of Colts fans: No dude, we could be taking Chubb!! Why trade down?

 

Other 50% of Colts fans: Oh yeah, hopefully we trade down and still get Nelson!! What are we getting??

 

... (long pause) ...

 

... (another long wait) ...

 

ESPN announcer: "We have a trade to announce. The Indianapolis Colts have traded the 3rd pick of Round 1 to the New York Jets, in exchange for the 6th pick of Round 1..."

 

Chubb supporters: Dang, we're probably missing our guy...

 

Nelson supporters: We can totally land Quenton at #6 still!! But what else did we get...

 

ESPN announcer (continues): "... and the 4th and 17th picks of Round 2..."

 

Chubb AND Nelson supporters: OH HOLY HECK TO THE YESS!!! WHAT A DEAL!!! WAY TO GO, BALLARD

 

Quick-thinking Colts fans: So wait, now we get BACK-TO-BACK selections in Round 2? Sweet...

 

ESPN announcer (still continuing): "... AND the Jets Round 2 pick in 2019"

 

ESPN announcer: **drops the mic**

 

ALL Colts fans: **silence, due to utter shock and awe of what they just heard**

 

... (after regaining consciousness) ...

 

ALL Colts fans: "We're getting Nelson AND three 2nd-rounders. What a night to be a Colts fan!"

 

or something like that lol

A projected 3rd to 4th Rounder in first holy cow Steelers:woah:

I'm shocked, but love it. That's now Hurst, Penny and Edmunds going in the 1st. They were projected 2nd-3rd round talents. So you know what that means for the Colts??

 

3 projected 1st-round talents sliding to us :rock:

Chargers are probably giddy that Derwin James dropped in their laps, a very good secondary will get better if they get him

Agreed. I would have accepted Indy selecting James at #6. That's incredible value for them to nab him at #17. They're building a nice defense in San Diego.

 Calvin Ridley to Cowboys?

Gott say, I love seeing Ridley go to the Falcons. They've sorely lacked a legit #2 WR since the decline of Roddy White. Ridley is going to be open A LOT playing opposite of Julio. Nice pickup for them.

At this point one has to assume there is something going on with Landry, right? Like medical or something? 

I was getting ready to ask the same. Most had him as a mid rounder if I recall right

On my board? Landry->Hurst->Connor Williams->Josh Jackson

 

Thanks. I wonder why we went with Hughes there. Is he better than Isaiah Oliver?

 

I really wanted OL. With Daniels, Hernandez and Williams on the board, I thought we would draft one of them.

    • MONEY MONEY MONEY TALKS 
    • https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/01/16/nfl-scouting-combine-2021-drastically-altered-covid-19   The NFL Combine won't be like were used to, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which limit the possibilities for teams to evaluate the players and their talent.   In the 4 years Ballard has been in Indianapolis, he have really nailed some of his draft picks and the scouting staff he has gathered in that period, have really been praised and mentioned time and time again, for their talent evaluation skills and success rate in the draft picks.   I know, every team have a huge setup and that the pandemic has limited the possibility for gathering as much information on every player in 2020 compared to other years, so it might be status Q. But the colts have been one of the better drafting teams the last couple of years, and with players like Big Q, Leonard, Taylor, Blackmon and Pittmann, Ballard and his team has really nailed some picks.   So, due to the major impact it will have for the entire league, that their won't be any scouting combine like were used to, does the Colts then have a slightly advantage over other teams, due to the setup Ballard and Ed Dodds have built?   I am especially thinking about an edge over teams with new GM´s, HC's and so on.
    • Haha.   I know what it means.    I worded it poorly.    What I meant was,   what was it he said that was disingenuous. 
    • I thought this guy suggesting the Colts keep Malik Hooker was the downfall of this video. Not even the dumbest GM in the NFL would trade their first round pick for Carson Wentz and that absurd contract he has tied to him. How could you label this as a perfect off-season?   What is Carson Wentz's salary cap hit Wentz is costing the Eagles $18.656 million against the cap for 2020. His dead money was set at $77.877 million.  His cap number jumps up to $34.673 million in 2021. It comes down to $31.274 million in 2022, and hits a peak of $36.273 million in 2023. In 2024, the final year of the contract, the cap hit of $32 million will match his average annual salary. Wentz is actually making only $1.383 million in base salary this season. That number hits a high of $22 million when he turns 30, appropriately in 2022. When the Eagles' structured Wentz's deal, in relation to the extensions for other highly drafted quarterbacks, it ended up being team-friendly. The Eagles had to work it up that way given Wentz's history of injury. In the end, however, he didn't sacrifice too much overall given the exponential explosion at the top of the QB market since. When can the Eagles get out of Carson Wentz's contract? The Eagles, if they don't think about trading Wentz before June 1 in 2021 — the only scenario in which they see any kind of cap relief for the move — are likely locked into Wentz for one more season. Given their cap situation, releasing Wentz is financially impossible. That move would cost the Eagles $59 mllion in dead money with a cap hit of $24.5 million. Trading him to someone would cause them to eat $33.8 million in dead money but at least get a mild cap relief of about $853,000. The trick there will be finding a partner willing to take on his adjusted lesser contract, which would be essentially for four years at $98.4 million
