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?

I really hope Josh Rosen falls flat on his face. His little rant got under my skin. First of all, he just ripped off the things Peyton Manning said before he was drafted, only Peyton had the class not to do it publicly to get attention. 

 

Secondly, this little turd means to tell me he holds it against us for not drafting him? 

 

Kid, even if we did draft you there would be zero future for you here. Same goes for the 49ers, and Broncos. You’d ride the bench until your butt hurt with the Giants, so they at least half count as well. 

 

Get over yourself. 

 

I wasn't fond of Lamar's act either.

I felt sorry for him.

Not that he wasn't picked until 32, but that he was invited to the party, accepted, and sat there with expectations.

Name any top player in this draft, I'll show you a flaw/negative in his game/character... except one player. Nelson. Find me the negative on him, where is the flaw?  In addition, this guy is being compared to Alan Faneca (round 1 pick #26 in 1998,  or Steve Hutchinson (round 1 pick #17 in 2001). Also, how is the Cowboys Zack Martin (round 1 pick #16 in 2014) working out?  So why the top 10 designation (instead of round 1) ?? Is that so you can toss out the pitiful (for almost every position/player) 2013 draft busts?

 

Chill man, I would of liked Smith/Edmunds because I believed we would be in a situation like we are in day 2, where there is a lot of talented interior OL available. Like I said to the first guy that quoted me I hope I'm wrong and Nelson wears a gold jacket. I just am in the belief that there are positions that are top 10 because they don't survive later in the first round, therefore when you are top 10 you should draft one of those players. All those guys you named I think that's the range they should be drafted in the teens or twenties, because thats when you are getting great talent for the draft position.

Here's a great in-depth review of Quenton Nelson as a prospect. What do you think?

 

 

For any of those who doubt that Nelson was a great pick needs to watch this. This explains why Nelson is NFL ready.

IMO it was imperative our first round pick was a day one starter. We didn't need a player who was a work in progress to be a NFL starter.

Tonight is where Ballard will have to really do the work as Nelson was a no brainer IMO.

im guessing rb or ol

Dude, we've got so many holes in the back 7 its pitiful, and that's not considering the fact our two starting safeties have either a reconstructed knee or a fused neck.

Who?

 

Corbett was one of the guys I wanted for my Vikes. I drafted him in the 2nd round in the Colts Forum Mock Draft. 

 

Oh well. Daniels is still there but he will go soon.

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
