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.

    • It has more to do with our scheme than with our players' specific strengths IMO. This scheme relies heavily on the LBs and safeties ability to rally to the ball when the pass is completed and not so much on sticking with the receiver and disrupting his ability to catch(this is part of the frustration with the scheme for me... we allow short passes to be completed on a whim and then rely on the secondary line of defense to get there and limit the damage). The length for our LBs serves multiple purposes not just in pass-defense - it is also useful keeping clean from blocks with long arm when in pursuit of a RB or a pass-catcher.   BTW 7 passes defended is not a little for a LB. For example - Bobby Wagner has 8, Fred Warner has 6... Demario Davis has 5... Lavonte David has 6... It's very much in line with all the best LBs in the league. 
    • That contract for Xavier Rhodes is a 1 year deal for 3 million? I mean that is funny. I think he might be looking for a lot more than that. Plus I would not be shocked if he gets at least a two year deal. 
    • What's up Colts fans. I'm a huge Lions fan and an even bigger Stafford fan. I pray that they get a deal done sending him to the Colts. The Lions wasted his early years but he's a straight up baller with a cannon. Stafford was nothing but amazing in the community and the locker room loves him. The Lions got the best QB that they've ever had and wasted him with head coaches like Jim Schwartz (a defensive coach) aka Jim Shorts as we call him, Jim Caldwell (need I digress?) and Matt Patricia (I would say that he's a defensive coach but he's garbage).   Stafford had to deal with garbage ever changing OC's, terrible HC's and a non existent running game. We didn't have a 100 yard rusher for a game that spanned almost 5 seasons. FIVE SEASONS!   Stafford is a perfect fit for Reich and I pray it gets done. He deserves a ring. Either way the Colts have put together a nice team and I wish you guys the best either way.
    • Mixed messages on him lately...   WR group already a weak spot....Without him. Worst group on the offense and possibly on the entire team besides maybe pass rush.
    • All good things must come to an end and I'll miss ghost but its time to move on. Since the Eagles and Colts are so connected my money is on the Eagles signing him. Reunite him with Nick.
