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 have both players rated as 2nd rounders. Darius Leonard is a beast and I liked Braden Smith just as much as Will Hernandez. 

 

I don't understand why Josh Jackson is falling so far down the board though. I kind of understand Harold Landry if it's due to health concerns. He didn't play that well last year and people kept saying to look at his 2016 tape... if he's not healthy he will continue to play at his 2017 level.

Who did Colts fans want?

Who we got.  I thought when Ballard was talking about starting Gs in the 2nd, I figured he was talking about Smith.  But I thought we'd get him at 49.  Probably the run on Gs forced his hand early.

I love it eventhough it wasn't what I expected. Leonard is Good. Smith is a monster! Protect #12!

 

You can't have enough OL. And draft them early. Perhaps Connor Williams may have been better there.

If Austin Corbett went first in the second round, than anybody can go anywhere. I think the team has more knowledge than we do about where people are expected to go.

LANCE ZIERLEIN AT NFL.com on Darius Leonard

 

Long and twitchy with athletic ability and straight-line speed that should light up the combine. Leonard has packed on the pounds since hitting campus, but it hasn't compromised his play speed as he has posted dominant production throughout. He lacks play strength and there are times you want to see more nasty in his field demeanor, but he has the traits and talent to become a good, three-down linebacker who can play 3-4 inside backer or 4-3 WILL.

Guys we can't rely on Jack Mewhort to stay healthy so we just needed to take the best offensive lineman available. I think Connor Williams and Brian O'Neil were better personally, but Braden Smith is in the same range.

Corbett is solid.  I swear social media is a herd driven parrotfest.

    • Yep, and SF has a couple 'gift' 3rd rounders (compensatory via the NYJ hire of Saleh)  in '21 and '22, either of which could be tossed in as icing on the cake while retaining  their regular 3rd rounders.    If SF wants him bad enough, unless Stafford is dead set on Indy, it'll be an uphill climb  for CB. 
    • First, I will start by saying that there is only 1 UFA of the Colt's that I would like to bring back - Al-Quadin Muhammed. Beyond him, I let every single player walk and sign elsewhere to get their contract they deserve or their last contract altogether - including Autry and Houston!   Starting with filling in the gaps on the defensive side - I would sign the freebie in the 26 year old Robert Nkemdiche and see if we can tap into that former 1st Round talent. Then I would sign 1 of the next 3 choices to fill out the defensive end positions: ----- Trey Hendrickson, 27 years old, from the Saints ----- Carl Lawson, 26 years old, from the Bengals ----- Solomon Thomas, 26 years old, from the 49ers Then I would sign 1 of the next 3 choices to fill out the cornerback positions: ----- Michael Davis, 26 years old, from the Chargers ----- Kevin King, 26 years old, from the Packers ----- Chidobe Awuzie, 26 years old from the Cowboys   Now, for the offense. I WOULD NOT TRADE for Stafford, Darnold, Wentz or any other QB linked to us. I would attempt to sign either Dak Prescott or Jameis Winston. Full Stop. If I strike out on those two then I roll the dice in the draft and have Eason and said draft pick duke it out in the Off-Season and Pre-Season games. I know, not a popular choice but I'm still banking on Eason and his number 1 ranking coming out of high school and his above average freshman year at GA and then an average year 2 years later in WA. The arm is there, he has enough mobility to slide in the pocket and roll out - just need to see him look off defenders and read defenses pre and post snap when the bullets are flying. Then I would sign 1 of the next 3 choices to fill out the widereceiver position: ----- Allen Robinson, 28 years old, from Da Bears ----- Corey Davis, 26 years old, from the Titans ----- Chris Godwin, 25 years old, from the Bucs   And a must have target in TE Jonnu Smith, 26 years old, from the Titans! His ability would help whatever QB is under center as well as open things up for all the WR's.   After the dust settles in Free Agency I will add to this and do my mock draft based on what positions were filled.  
    • Here's one of the physical freaks at the Senior Bowl, making a great play:      
    • Irsay is basically not giving anything away lol. He says this team is ready to win so ideally if you can find a vet who can come in that would be great. Then he says ideally if you can find the guy in the draft for the next 15 years that is the right path. So not giving anything away. It does sound though like they want a vet that can give them 3-5 years.
