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.

    • I get #1 and I especially #4. #4 worries me. I think #2 & especially #3 would be greatly reduced with us, just like with Phil.
    • I wouldn't say trading for Stafford could happen "easily"  They aren't trading him unless they get someone they feel is a better option.   If they can't,   they won't trade him
    • Good post on Hilton: One critical element, regarding Hilton is; who’s going to be throwing to him? People say he’s declining and to some degree that’s true but he really hasn’t had a “gunslinger” throwing to him since Luck and I believe that effects people’s perception of him.       I like Mack but he may warrant better money elsewhere. If Taylor went down, it would be nice to plug him in and having running backs with “fresh legs” at the end of the year, would be key in making a postseason run.      Hooker is expendable. I hope they find a way to keep Rhodes. (It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary shakes out).     I think they’ll keep Autry and/or Houston but that could change if they think Lewis could step in.      I disagree that MAC is a “one note player”. He’s an above average blocker, a good route runner and good at 50/50 balls. He was hampered by injury, so he looks lumbering in his receiving game but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of his game yet.      
    • I believe Houston was on the feild more than Autry too. Never mind Autry was played a bit more.
    • TY Hilton - If he's not willing to take a paycut down to WR2 money then I'm fine with moving on from him.  Loved what he's done for the org but he's not a WR1 anymore.  I'd rather pay him WR2 money and sign a True #1.   Marlon Mack - His spot at this point is taken.  I'm fine with moving forward with JT, Hines, and possibly drafting a young bruiser or signing a vet for cheap.  If he's willing to come back on a prove it deal then fine, otherwise he can test the market.   Justin Houston - Resign him.  2yr deal with an option.  Coming off one of his best years.  He was definitely our best pass rusher.  Health isn't a concern but age is.  I'd say bring him back.  Not too expensive however.  That may prove to be a problem if he's looking to cash out before retirement.   Denico Autry - I want to bring him back, but if another team try to force us to overpay for him then we should let him walk.   Xavier Rhodes - I was impressed by Rhodes this year.  Bring him back, but not for #1 CB money.  I don't think he's there.  #2 CB money for him and I'm ok.   Anthony Walker Jr. - He can walk.  We need an upgrade.  I'd be fine with drafting his replacement.  But if we can't find anyone I'm down to bring him back.   Malik Hooker - Same as Marlon Mack.  JB has taken his spot.  Either come back on a prove it deal or he can walk also.   Jacoby Brissett - We need to wait and see how our QB search plays out.  If we are able to grab Wentz, Staff, or Wats, then I'm ok with Eason being the backup.  But if we fail on the 3 mentioned and Ballard isn't sold on Eason, I'm fine with JB being a stopgap.  He'll play good enough to keep us competitive but not so good where we have trash draft capital.   Zach Pascal - IDK about this one.  We need to upgrade at WR but due injuries depth is a concern.  50/50.   Mo-Alie Cox - Resign ASAP!  I think MAC is a diamond in the rough.  I honestly think he can be the next Antonio Gates.  Not sure why we don't utilize him more.
